Either line the box with wax paper or parchment paper, or use a box with a waxy coating on the inside.

Some other options include tin boxes or transparent cookies bags. Bags are especially good if you are gifting smaller quantities and they look pretty with colorful ribbons and paper tags.

Tins are also a good way to share treats back and forth. I have several family members that I will sometimes bring treats to and the tins (or tupperware) often get returned filled!

Love giving cookies to friends and have found cellophane bags tied with ribbons to work well.

If the cookie tastes good, who cares? Some of the most delightful foods have stains in the bag. Think doughnuts, burgers, frites, fish.
