Whimsical Cookie Jars

by sheilamarie

Whether you eat cookies or not, a whimsical cookie jar is a fun addition to your kitchen decor. Here is a collection of fun cookie jars that would make great gifts.

Can you resist a smile while looking at these whimsical cookie jars? If you can, then you are either someone with a great deal of self control or you hate cookies or you can't be bothered with such foolishness.

Even if you don't have a cookie jar collection, you may want to begin one just so you can add one of these beauties to it.

There's Nothing Quite Like the Smell of Homemade Cookies Baking in the Oven

What Better Place to Keep the Final Product than in a Whimsical Cookie Jar?

Do you remember coming home from school as a kid and smelling fresh home baked cookies straight from the oven that were lovingly placed on a plate with a glass of cold milk sitting beside them? In my family, it was often my grandmother who had baked the cookies, though my busy mother sometimes took the time to bake them as well. We usually were given the treat of oatmeal raisin cookies, though sometimes we had chocolate chip cookies or gingerbread cookies, too.

In my house, homemade cookies were a special treat. We didn't have them all the time, but when we did, they sure felt special. They tasted like love, too.

What Else Can You Keep in a Cookie Jar?

These cookie jars caught my eye, and I just wanted to share them with you. But to tell you the truth, I have been making fewer cookies these days, as my children are grown now and my waistline doesn't really need a constant supply.

But you can store more than cookies in a cookie jar. Some people keep their cat or dog treats in them. Others keep dry staples, such as rice or flour or sugar in their cookie jars. 

You could also stick to the treat theme and keep pretzels in your cookie jar or even change for the bus. (Come now, is that within the treat theme?)

I'll bet you can come up with dozens more ideas for things you can store in a cookie jar.

Please leave your suggestions in the comment section below.

These are so cute. My parents had a whimsical cookie jar in our house, when I was growing up. I'm pinning this to my Wizzley Writing Board.

Thanks for your comment, Linda. The ladybug is a cute one!

I love the ladybug

Very cute and I like the chef cookie jar the best. I agree that they are not great for storing cookies, but they are a great way to store other little treats such as pre-packaged individually wrapped snacks like granola bars, fruit snacks and flavored water packets.

Hi Arlene! Thanks for commenting. They do make fun collectibles. You can store other things in them, too.
