For a lot of us the holiday season is all about cookies, and what better way to impress your family and friends than with some homemade sugar cookies? But if your cookie baking usually turns into a fire hazard, let lovely local Elsylee make them for you in her home and you can take the credit. For $7 per dozen, you get different shapes, icing, and sprinkles with lots of holiday cheer.

Local graphic designer Laura Paresky Gould created Alphabet plates for the kid in all of us. Personalize the plate with your name and favorite food from burgers to sushi starting at $22. With the vegetables already painted there, you'll have more room for that turkey....

After you've been slaving away in the kitchen with that roast or turkey, the idea of making a pie is exhausting. Thankfully the folks at Flanciful Cheesecake make and deliver homemade cakes. There are over 20 flavors to choose from ranging in price from $35 to $45.So no need to serve that burnt pumpkin pie this year.

Donuts and coffee are always a good way to start the day, but a Dunkin Donuts run may not be the right thing for Christmas morning. So stick with the morning ritual but make it just a bit brighter with Mandarin Gourmet Donut Shoppe. They'll deliver a dozen piping hotties to your door so you don't have to get out of your reindeer pjs. Packages start at $24.49 for 24 donuts.
