I have decided to add a bit more class to the Gillum House. In the past, I offered  "care package" of muffins (planned overage) in zip bags that would hold about a dozen mini-muffins. I now can only do a max of 9, but that is OK. Here is how I am doing it now.

Nice thing about this is you can have all the supplies ready to go (if you are a good planner and have time wink)

and pop the goodies in the box 

 Just remembered I sometimes gave away my 'world famous' banana bread - mini loaves - with the recipe. Recipe cards are nice if you are willing to share. I'm sure you get requests for recipes as I did.

Beautiful.  I bought similar to-go boxes this year.  I do have the individually wrapped small butter portions on hand anyway, so might add a couple of those.

A note inside is nice - but no pat of butter, please. You don't know when they will be eaten.

No butter. My muffins are a sweet. No butter needed (although my Pappy taught me the only way to esat a Danish is slathered withbutter)

 I love this! Yes, definitely little labels with your logo. I would be such a fan of a place that gave me a gift like that.

But will the goodies remain as fresh in a box rather than a tight seal zip bag?

They only get 9 and they are from that morning's breakfast. We are talking mini muffins, not the big boys. They will not last long.

Looks cute! I can't see the whole photo on my tablet, do you have little sticky labels to put on the box with your info?
