If you are planning on sending holiday baking to loved ones this season, Canada Post has tips online.  Choose a sturdy cookie - not a fragile one.  Try to mail them soon after baking, or freeze them.  Airtight containers are best to ship the baked goods in and pack them individually.  You can then wrap your box and place that inside a shipping box.  More tips are on their website.
