Cookie Ideas for a Gift Basket?

Question by wateronthered: Cookie Ideas for a Gift Basket?
I am planning on making a gift basket of mini bread loaves, wine, homemade jelly, and cookies. I’m looking for some good cookies that would fit a wine/bread basket. Also, if any one has any ideas for some types of bread loaves or what else to put in the basket, I’m open to those too!
