Surprise them with a cookie tin designed for them! Fill the Christmas Presents Personalized Cookie Tin with your special recipe treats or you can fill them with items that remind you of them to share. Well print the design on the lid of the cookie tin. Each of the 3 1/4 inch high x 9 inch diameter cookie tins allow you to add your own personalization. Cookies not included.

For those looking to create the ultimate cookie exchange, the experts at Hershey's Kisses Brand Chocolates offer the following tips to turn any holiday party into a sweet success.

Cookie exchange tips:

* When sending out invitations, include a unique cookie recipe for each guest as a suggestion. Also ask your guests to RSVP with the recipe they plan to make so that you can be sure not to double up on a specific type of cookie. You can find a variety of creative recipes at www.kissescookies.com.

* Once you have all the RSVPs, inform your guests how many cookies they need to bring. One dozen per guest is a good start, but if you're having a large party, it might be a good idea to reduce this quantity to only a half-dozen cookies so that guests aren't overwhelmed with baking.

* Encourage your guests to bring copies of their recipe for everyone. Also ask them to bring along sealable containers for the cookies they're taking home. Have a few extra containers on hand in case someone forgets.

* To give your party added fun, set out gift tags, gift bags, ribbons and pens so that your guests can create gifts for co-workers, neighbors, teachers and friends.

* Play holiday music and offer simple refreshments like hot cocoa, warm apple cider, coffee, tea and eggnog to keep the holiday ambiance going.

1 cup softened butter
1/3 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 cup Hershey's Mini Chips Semi-Sweet Chocolates
