Would you like to put a smile on a child’s face this holiday season? Of course you would. You have a heart, after all.
It’s easy to do that when you choose one of the new Christmas gift ideas for kids from Cheryl’s Cookies. And with many of them, your special little one will be able to snack on her favorite cookies and have something fun to play with, too!
Bundles of joy
Plush toys and blankets of their favorite holiday characters — step right up, Mr. Grinch — and fun DIY kits are part of the new kids holiday line at Cheryl’s. The collection was about a year in the making, and the goal was to bring joy to both the sender and the recipient.
“We already know that kids love our cookies and treats, but we wanted to increase the value of the present,” says Kara Jaggers, senior director of merchandising for Cheryl’s Cookies. “A lot of grandparents, aunts and uncles, and even parents struggle with knowing what gift will really make a child happy. We wanted to take the guessing out by providing gifts that will not only offer the treats kids love but also keep them entertained.”
Jaggers mentions the word “joy” a lot when she talks about the new collection. “We think about the child who opens the gift and the joy they get,” Jaggers explains. “But we also focus on the giver — our customer — and the joy they get in giving a special gift to a child.
“We wanted to make sure the sender feels that feeling of joy and satisfaction that comes with knowing that you gave a child exactly the right gift.”
Kid tested, kid approved
In addition to extensively researching marketing trends, Jaggers and her team went straight to the experts: They asked their own children for feedback on the new holiday gift ideas.
“Many of us are parents — I am the mom of three little kids myself — and we asked our own kids to rank the gifts,” Jaggers explains. “And they always like to give us their input on their favorite cookie flavors.”
Her “at-home” team of experts gave a big thumbs-up to the new Cheryl’s holiday cookies that have faces on them, including the cute reindeer, polar bear, and snowman cookies.
These new products, Jaggers explains, go beyond the usual fun, whimsical gifts that Cheryl’s offers — and that kids love — to also include what she describes as “an experience.”
“We want to be there to provide more than just our delicious cookies,” she says. “We want to help our customers create memories with their families.”
Here’s a peek at seven Christmas gift ideas you’ll find in this year’s holiday collection for kids.
Everyone loves the story of the grumpy Grinch and the events that led to his heart tripling in size. This fun gift features a soft Grinch blanket to snuggle up with on cold winter nights, as well as a classic chocolate chip cookie and five individually wrapped buttercream frosted cut-outs. Just make sure they finish their roast beast before digging into these treats.
The now lovable Grinch comes as a soft plush toy in this sweet gift. Add in the fact that he is accompanied by almost two dozen yummy cookies, and this is a real kid favorite!
Start your own fun-filled Elf on the Shelf tradition with these adorable, poseable elves. And since Cheryl’s cookies taste great on a shelf (or on a table, or just about anywhere), this gift also includes an assortment of colorful kid-pleasing holiday cookies.
OK, a gift doesn’t get much cuter than this! Your little one will melt at the sight (and sound) of this puppy plush toy that dances to “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” (No need to worry about batteries; they’re also included!) And to make things even sweeter, this present includes a half dozen buttercream frosted holiday cut-out cookies.
Building holiday memories will be easy with this DIY snowman kit. It comes with the perfect accessories for a snowman: a hat, a scarf, buttons for eyes and a mouth, and a toy carrot for the nose. And after a fun time playing outside in the snow, you’ll all enjoy these delicious and festive holiday cookies, including, of course, one decorated like a cute snowman.
Cookie decorating and warm holiday memory making go hand in hand. With this fun DIY kit, we’ve taken all the work out of having to prepare for this family bonding experience. This gift includes 12 already-baked-but-unfrosted, cut-out cookies, six popcorn balls, vanilla buttercream frosting, an icing tube, and, of course, plenty of holiday sprinkles.
Who says s’mores are just for enjoying around a campfire? We think they are the perfect indoor holiday treat, too! This kit contains everything you need to create your own delicious s’mores with your kiddos this season. Be sure to take plenty of photos of the mouthwatering results, because we know they will be too tasty to last long!
