Members should bake one dozen cookies for each member (assuming you have a smallish group of less than 10 people - you might want to say 1/2 dozen per member if there are lots of participants) and package them separately so exchange is easier to make. With new disposable containers on market, separate packaging is easy. Even a simple paper plate (preferably with a Christmas design) would work.
The party itself works well with finger foods like veggies and dip and buffet style food. If it is an evening do, a wine and cheese spread would be fun too. Make sure everyone knows that this is for participants only, no spouses or kids at party.
