Break away from the conventional shapes of snowmen and Santa. Some sets have cutters in the form of whimsical winter animals such as penguins, polar bears, or even mythical creatures like unicorns. These distinctive designs add a touch of curiosity, but we find the unconventional shapes like mittens, ugly sweaters, and even popular cultural references fun. Unique Christmas cookie cutters invite you to explore your imagination and become tools for storytelling. Combine different shapes to create cookie collages, layer colours and icing for added dimension, the possibilities are as endless as your imagination and creativity.

These winter cookie cutters are equally great as a pancake mould, to cut sandwiches. We recommend washing and drying them immediately after use to avoid the material getting rusty.

Vintage Christmas cookie cutters often boast classic shapes that have stood the test of time such as the elegance of an antique sleigh, or a graceful reindeer.
These classic shapes not only bring a touch of nostalgia but also offer a connection to family traditions. Vintage cookie cutters are not merely tools for shaping dough; they are keepsakes that carry a sense of history and sentimentality. Whether inherited from family members, discovered in antique shops, or even bought new, each cutter has its own story to tell, adding a layer of meaning to the act of holiday baking.
We all know Santa’s old fashioned vintage truck with tree and this cookie cutter is perfect to bring back the nostalgic feel. There is nothing much to say, but to get the cutter and start baking!

Highlights of Christmas cookie cutters
Baking is one of the most fun things to do at Christmas time. Of course, there is putting up the tree and decorating it, but kids also love spending time with their moms and grandmothers making all sorts of lovely and tasty treats.
Another reason to use Christmas cookie cutters is to make ornaments for the tree or fireplace. You can make a salt batter, then harden the dough once it is cut out in different festive shapes. Paint the designs and then use a shiny wash like craft vanish to seal and finish off the dough.
You can also add all kinds of decorations such as beads, glitter, string, and buttons. Just don’t forget to make a hole at the top of the ornament before you let it dry, so that you can add a ribbon to hang it. Also, use non-toxic or edible materials.
As you can see buying a set of Christmas cookie cutters can be a real investment for many fun Yuletide projects.
