There's nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked cookies in the house, and having a plate of delicious cookies or Christmas biscuits to snack on during the festive period is the perfect treat after a tough year. 

Whether you're an amateur baker or fancy yourself as a bit of a Mary Berry, there are plenty of gadgets and tools to make the baking process a little easier for you. 

That's why we've rounded up some of the best Christmas cookie cutters on the market so you can perfect your festive bakes this winter. 


The best Christmas cookie cutters

For the ultimate range of Christmas themed biscuits, go for this huge set, complete with 20 different festive shapes including candy canes, snowmen, presents and stockings.  

For a traditional round biscuit with the Christmassy cut out in the middle (a bit like a festive Jammy Dodger), these cutters are great. You can add any filling you like in the middle of the cookie such as jam or even nutella before dusting with some icing sugar. 

Animal obsessed? We love this polar bear cutter from Lakeland. Once baked, you can name your polar bears and decorate them all with their own individual style. 

If you don't fancy cluttering your kitchen cupboards with 20 Christmas cookie cutters, this five piece set is ideal. Featuring a snowflake, Christmas tree, reindeer, gingerbread man and snowman, there are still plenty of different designs for your kids to bake and decorate. 

If you're baking with smaller children, you might prefer to use plastic cookie cutters rather than steel or metal. This festive red set is ideal and comes with eight different festive designs. 

We love the idea of making edible cookie baubles that you can tie some ribbon through and hang on the tree, ready for when you get peckish! 

We think if you can perfect this cookie tree, you're worthy of being star baker this Christmas. The idea is to bake all 10 differently sized stars before decorating them and piling them on top of one another to create a 3D mini cookie Christmas tree.
