Christmas cookie tins are a pretty and sturdy way to send your Christmas cookies through the mail. If you've pulled out your Chrismtas cookie cutters from your holiday storage boxes and are ready to get started making little gingerbread man cookies and candy cane biscotti, then read on. I have some free cookie recipes and tips for sending these delicious holiday morsels through the mail.

Tips for Sending Your Christmas Cookie Tins

  • About.com reminds people to not mail very perishable foods. Christmas cookies like gingerbread man cookies or chocolate chip cookies are fine, because they keep for awhile unlike food such as meats or soft cheeses. And send food items through the mail via the fastest shipping method possible.
  • Wrap your Christmas cookie favorites tightly and make sure you choose tins that won't bust open. If you have to, tape the tin shut and put into a box with packing materials and wrap the cookie tin in bubble wrap.
  • Put the heavy items you're sending on the bottom of the box and then stack the lighter items over the bigger items. This helps you avoid crushing the lighter items in transport.
