Since we're now into November it's safe to start thinking about gift giving for the holidays—specifically, all those handmade treats we'd love to give (and receive). When I hit up my local IKEA recently, these $5 finds sucked me in. They're the perfect containers to hold your homemade edible goodies!

These plastic containers from IKEA's PS collection come three to a package (in small, medium and large) for just $5. They are easy to assemble and secure enough to hold a salad with dressing or even a few loaves of homemade bread. Oh yeah, and cookies. Lots of cookies.

At this price it would be easy to tie up your goods in a printed tea towel or take things just as they are to a party and leave the dish behind. No muss, no fuss and you won't have to worry about them taking up space in anyone's cabinets, since they wash clean and pack flat.
