For me, presentation is everything. The cookies inside the box can be good but they are not great unless they are presented well. I spend lots of time (and extra loose change) on ribbons, boxes, tissues, bags,
anything that adorns a box and gives it a life of it's own.
I have received many personal emails regarding my resources. I have tons. However, I have a select few that I frequent and adore. With the holidays around the corner, this would be as good a time as any to share my resources:

http://is.gd/5ezkG - all colors
http://is.gd/5ezoo - all sizes
I also love their ribbons (the grosgrain)
these are more expensive, but the colors are really great. especially in the Spring.
I like their cellophane, their coffee bags (http://is.gd/5ezGJ)
these are great for caramel corn, small cookie gifts
candy, etc. I don't like the ones with the windows
They have really expanded their ribbon inventory.
I had fun recently buying some of their new
ribbons. Also, their prices on large shipping boxes
are really good.
Crimped Paper Shred is a good alternative to
Styrofoam popcorn for filling creates, tins, boxes
( http://is.gd/5ezOA ).
