How to Host a Simple Christmas Cookie Exchange

If you’re interested in How to Host a Simple Christmas Cookie Exchange, you’ve come to the right place! When setting up, I clear the breakfast area on my countertops and set up a few key items.

Small holiday plates and utensils, mugs for hot drinks, and dairy glasses [with paper straws] for cold milk.

Placing an individual K-Cup in each mug invites guests to help themselves to the Keurig if they would like to make themselves a cup of coffee or hot cocoa!

Next, I set out the containers of the cookies I’ve made ahead of time, and when guests arrive, I simply take off the lids and serve.

I’m crazy about this red metal nesting set I found while outlet shopping one year in Tennessee, but any easy food container(s) would work!

In addition to my storage containers, I also set out a variety of other serving platters and tiered stands. This provides guests with a place to put their cookies when they arrive.

Next, I like to arrange a few little tealight candles. Especially if the Christmas Cookie Exchange is taking place at night, these provide such a cozy ambiance.
