Where to Get Holiday Treats & Sweets around Grand Rapids

Corporate Gift Baskets, Classroom Party Cookies, or That Pie You Just Didn’t Want to Bake – These Grand Rapids Bakeries can Handle Your Holidays

The holidays are just around the corner! I’m not sure how that happened since I’m certain I just wrapped up back-to-school shopping. Alas, here they are. I’m already penciling in work celebrations and family gatherings on my calendar!

When it comes to bringing a treat to share or the perfect hostess gift, sometimes the busyness of the holidays requires that I outsource my baking. No judgement here!

Lucky for us, there are loads of places in the Grand Rapids area that offer specialty sweets and treats for the holiday season.

Be aware, these places require you to place your holiday orders ahead of time! Check early for deadlines when making your Thanksgiving and Christmas plans.

Where to Order Your Holiday Sweets and Treats in Grand Rapids

After you’ve got those delicious cookies or cakes, what’s next? Presentation!!

One of my favorite ways to bring food to a potluck or party is to buy something delicious from someone else (like one of these local artisans), and then put it on a pretty plate for killer presentation. Don’t worry – when people ooh and aah, I don’t take credit for the food – I tell them where the treats came from.

But having it on a festive plate or platter gives it that extra special touch. It turns the stressful task of making something special for a potluck or teacher into an exciting activity. You find a locally made treat, find a fun gift box or plate, and your job is done!

In the super busy holiday season, this is like a gift to yourself as well.

These local bakers are where to start.
