Packaging cookies

Ever since high school, my friend and I have been making cookies for all our local friends for Christmas. We typically make 10 different types of cookies over a two day period. The most difficult part has always been figuring out a way to package them and I was hoping you guys would have recommendations.

In the past, we've used:
- Tin buckets that we decorated
- Cardboard boxes (Not shipping boxes, but like the ones you get when you buy a sweater at Macy's)
- Chinese steamer baskets (the bamboo ones you get a dim sum places. These, by the way, were the best so far. You can stack the cookies three or four high in a basket and then add another basket on top, And when you're done, you have the cap that goes on top of the stack of steamer basket.)
- Festive plates (this was the worst idea, since they tend to slide, despite the entire thing being wrapped in colored cellophane)
