Be a smart cookie

All of these options should keep your cookies nice and fresh, but if you want to be super-sure, then consider our overall staff pick, the OXO Good Grips POP Cookie Jar. This option has a unique lid that you press down to seal the contents.

Our favorite novelty choice is the TruffleShuffle Star Wars Wookiee Cookies Tin. This has a fun, Chewbacca-themed design in gorgeously retro 70s tones.

Another vintage-themed option we really like is the rather lovely Ceramic Owl Cookie Jar. This reminds us of having milk and cookies at our grandparents' when we were kids.
