So you’ve been going around shops trying to find that one gift you can give to your special someone. But after three long hours of gawking at stalls and walking pass through numerous stores, you still haven’t found anything interesting at all. 

Well, here’s an idea! Why not just bake or order some smiley face cookies? 

Why smiley face cookies, you may ask. For the record, there are many reasons why these sweet treats are the best gift you can give on literally any occasion. Here are only some of them:

  1. Smiley face cookies make people smile, literally. 

Oftentimes, you can’t help but also smile if you see a smiley face in front of you. This is actually a scientific fact. According to a study published in the Trends in Cognitive Sciences report in 2016, people really have a natural tendency to mimic a facial expression of emotion. The mimicry, as it is called, allows them to recognize and feel the emotion that the messenger was conveying in the first place.

But it’s not just the smiley face that will make your special someone crack that grin. It’s actually also the cookies themselves. Cookies contain a bit of sugar, and an intake of this leads to a surge in levels of dopamine in the body. Dopamine is a feel-good transmitter and it contributes to people’s feelings of pleasure and satisfaction.

So if your special someone had a bad day, once he sees those cookies you gave him through an Eat’n Park e-Gift card, you will surely put a big smile on his face.

  1. Cookies provide good health benefits. 

Cookies are rich in proteins. Proteins are required for the structure, regulation, and functions of the body’s tissues and organs. They are what the body’s metabolism converts into energy.

But apart from this, researchers from Tel Aviv University actually found that eating dessert with breakfast can help with weight loss. For their study published in the journal Steroids, the researchers divided participants into two groups that were given a low carbohydrate diet for breakfast. One group, however, was allowed to eat dessert, which could be cookies, cake or ice cream. 

After 16 weeks, the researchers found that people on the dessert regimen lost 13 pounds apart from the 32 pounds they lost previously. On the other hand, those in the other group gained back 3.5 pounds of the 32 pounds they had already lost.

When you give cookies as a gift, you’re not only making the person feel good but you are also making him or her look good.

  1. Cookies are just delicious.

There are many cookie flavors at your disposal. You have chocolate cookies, strawberry cookies, or perhaps, sugary cookies are more to your liking. Whichever flavor you choose actually doesn’t even matter. All of them, after all, have a common denominator: they have the ability to stimulate your tastebuds. 

When your special someone chows down those cookies, he or she will surely be asking for more. Yes, there’s actually a reason Cookie Monster loves stuffing those sweet delights down his throat. 

  1. Smiley cookies remind people not to sweat the small stuff. 

A boy eating his cookies with a glass of milk in one hand has already become a common scene in any household. It serves as a bond food or comfort food of the family before they all go about their activities for the day.

But when people grow older and become adults, that scene inevitably fades into just a memory and is replaced by more recent scenes. That once-small boy now has to deal with responsibilities, after all, and has much less time to spend with his old man and family members over a snack.

So, what will the smiley cookies do? They can actually bring your special someone back to those days when he or she did not care for anything aside from dipping the cookies in a glass of milk. More importantly, it will remind them that it’s actually not worth it to be too serious about life. 

Without even saying anything, those smiley cookies will surely teach people a valuable lesson: Live a little and enjoy life!

Conclusion

Smiley cookies are the perfect gift for anyone, precisely because they are sweet and sentimental, especially if you baked them personally. They can also serve as a reminder on how to live a little while, at the same, giving that gustatory satisfaction.

Those little round smiley face cookies ensure both the emotional and physical well-being of people. In short, they are food for the body and food for the soul.
