Christmas is Over…Now What?!

It was a successful holiday season here at Pacific Cookie Company, and we can’t thank our wonderful customers enough! Many of you purchased gift items on our website and sent them to your loved ones across the country. We also had gift items available for pick up at our Pacific Avenue location for local customers. Whether you ordered cookies for a loved one or for yourself, the holiday orders sure kept us busy!

Here is a recap of some of our best selling gift items:

A White Christmas Cookie Tray – This item is unique to our other gifts because we package it with four dozen mini cookies. It was popular among business offices with plenty to share!

Santa’s Nightcap – This was a new gift item for us and we are so thrilled you loved it! We had this box custom designed with a chocolate chip topper! We can’t wait to bring this back next year!

Adorable Santa Pants – Year after year, you guys have cherished this gift item, and we can see why! Cookies and Santa Pants…You really can’t get anything cuter than this!

What are we up to now that Christmas is over? Believe it or not, we will soon be brainstorming ideas for the 2019 holiday season! Of course there are essential upcoming holidays – Valentine’s day, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day – but, with Christmas and Cookies, can you name a better pairing?

Holiday Cookie Gifts…Sneak Peek!

With September coming to an end, many are embracing the changing season – the crisp Fall air, the orange and brown leaves, and pumpkin spice everything! One’s biggest worry may be what their Halloween costume is going to be, but for us, Fall has a very different meaning.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

We’ve been brainstorming new gift ideas since Spring and have devoted much time and attention to making our visions come to life. With that comes a ton of creative energy. Let’s just say we’ve flipped through a LOT of ribbon catalogs.

We know, we know…it’s only September, so we won’t dive too much into Holiday lingo quite yet, BUT we’d love to give you a first look of some of our new Holiday gifts! We think you’re going to love them!

Stylish Wishes

Our custom designed cut-out box has been a very popular item for us during the Holidays. This year, we are adding new, fun colors that will compliment the holiday spirit! Our Stylish Wishes Cookie Gift Box holds one dozen of our gourmet cookies and tied with a bow. We think the cut-out of the classic Christmas Tree adds a special touch that the recipient will adore!

Available soon

Santa’s Nightcap

We are especially excited about this cut-out box! We spent quite a bit of time perfecting this design and we are in love with it! We’ve created our own spin on Santa’s Cap with a playful  chocolate chip topper. This box fits one dozen melt-in-your-mouth cookies. All that’s missing is a glass of milk!

Available soon

Home for The Holidays

What we enjoy most about gift giving is being able to customize your gift for the recipient. Our Home for the Holidays Cookie Gift Tower allows you to do just that! You may select the tower color which is available in green, white or red AND select which holiday greeting to be wrapped around. Greetings available are, “Home, Holidays, Hope”, “Season’s Greetings” and “Cookies Make the Holidays Sweeter”. Holds one dozen scrumptious cookies.

Available online at

Holiday Collection Available Soon!

Alright, alright we really did dive into that Holiday lingo, but can you blame us?! Cookies and Christmas do go hand in hand. We will have our complete holiday collection online SOON! We hope everyone enjoys Fall! We’ll be recruiting some of Santa’s helpers in the meantime 🙂

Valentine’s Day Cookie Pairings

You already know that your sweetie has their heart set on some warm cookies this Valentine’s Day but maybe you need some ideas to make your gift extra special. Well, look no further – we’ve got your gift inspiration right here!

Inspo #1: Warm cookies and world-class coffee

We’re fortunate enough to live in a city full of amazing coffee roasters. Take advantage of the local coffee scene and pick up a bag of coffee beans to gift along with those warm, fresh-baked cookies. Don’t be afraid to ask for advice from the baristas 😉

Inspo #2: Gourmet cookies and artisanal chocolates

Chocolate and cookies were destined for each other. You can’t go wrong when combining these two Valentine’s Day essentials. Pick up some local chocolates and join them with your sweetheart’s favorite cookies or go all out and get our chocolate dipped cookies. Or do both! You can never have TOO much chocolate.

Inspo #3: Fresh-baked cookies and hand-crafted wine

You can’t get more romantic than cookies and wine, especially if you find the perfect pairing!
Try one of these combos:

  • Lemon Drop cookies + Prosecco
  • Dr Midnight cookies + Zinfandel
  • Peanut Butter cookies (with or without chocolate chips) + Port
  • Oatmeal Raisin cookies + Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Almond Joe cookies + Pinot Noir
