How to Host a Cookie Exchange Party | Name Bubbles


The holiday season is a time for joy, warmth, and, of course, indulging in delicious treats. What better way to spread festive cheer than by hosting a Cookie Exchange Party? This delightful party idea allows friends and family to share their favorite homemade cookies and enjoy a variety of sweet treats. Not only are Cookie Exchange parties a great way to sample homemade cookies and get introduced to new recipes, but it’s a fun holiday activity for kids that is bound to be a crowd pleaser.

Setting the Scene:

Before diving into the cookie exchange details, set the scene for a memorable, cozy gathering. Decorate your space with festive colors, twinkling lights, and charming festive decorations like festive tablecloth, holiday serving platters, and christmas attire. Create a cozy ambiance with seasonal scents like cinnamon and vanilla. Add a personalized touch to your cookies by placing Name Bubbles labels on the container. We recommend our Write-On Labels, which can help you mark what type of cookies you created, along with our Name Labels that will help you hold onto your tupperware! To jazz up a boring container, we also recommend our new Winter Waterproof Stickers, which are perfect for a holiday cookie party.

Cookie Swap Party Invitations:

Send out invitations that showcase the theme of your cookie exchange party. Include a touch of sweetness by attaching a personalized label from Name Bubbles to each invitation and encourage your guests to use the labels on their containers. Not only is this a fun, personalized touch, but you can avoid tupperware mixups at the party since everyone’s items will be properly labeled. 

Cookie Swap Packaging:

Speaking of labeled tupperware, we also recommend you encourage your guests to get creative with their cookie packaging. Perhaps you can customize a pack of our labels in a different design for each guest and encourage the guests to package their cookies based on the label style. For example, if a guest receives our Penguin Labels, they can decorate with snowflakes, penguin stickers, and other wintery designs. 

To encourage unique cookie packaging, set up labeling stations at your party where guests can easily personalize their cookie containers. Along with their personalized Name Bubbles labels, provide a selection of Name Bubbles' Write-On labels in different shapes, sizes, and designs to allow participants to choose the ones that best suit their style and write on their container what type of cookies they created. 

Cookie Exchange Rules:

Establish guidelines for the cookie exchange to ensure a fair and enjoyable experience. Participants can bring a set number of cookies, and each person will leave with an assortment of treats. By establishing a set of rules ahead of time, you ensure everyone leaves full and happy. If possible, try to have each guest bake a dozen cookies as a minimum so everyone can have at least one cookie from the different cookie recipes. You can also purchase store bought cookies as a backup plan in case there aren’t enough to go around.


Hosting a Cookie Exchange Party with Name Bubbles' personalized labels adds a touch of magic to your holiday celebrations. From invitations to cookie packaging, our aim is for our labels to allow you to combine the spirit of the season with meaningful personalization. Embrace the joy of sharing delicious treats with loved ones while creating lasting memories at your festive and personalized gathering. Cheers to sweet celebrations and the magic of the holiday season!
