Whether its brownies, cupcakes or other sweet treats made in the kitchen, these oriental takeaway style containers are all the rage and wonderfully practical for all kinds of kitchen made gifts. You can often buy them at low prices in large numbers which is great for giving gifts to large numbers of people. They're also often plain white and so can be decorated and customised as much as wanted. You could add tissue paper and ribbon or a sticker or two to the outside of the box.
