Though a lot of things can be said about 2020, one of the brighter parts of this year has been just how creative people have become. From Zoom weddings and happy hours to virtual birthday parties and family game nights, there isn't much you can't do with an internet connection and a computer. That's exactly why we can't think of a better idea than moving your annual office or family cookie swap party online. Send your nearest and dearest a box full of sweet and seasonal treats this December. December 4th, so marks National Cookie Day, so now is the perfect time to place all your orders. Because honestly, after everything we've all been through this year, Santa isn't the only one who deserves a sweet treat.


Mrs. Fields does it again with these personal-sized cookie cakes. Not only can you customize them to feature a heartfelt message in the icing colors of your choosing, if you order one between now and December 6th, you can get it for 40% off too!
