Online Resource for Candy, Cookie Packaging

I'm starting to plan for my Holiday gift baskets and I need to find a website that sells cellophane bags, small boxes and other appropriate packaging for small amounts of cookies, candies.
Any ideas would be appreciated, thanks!
The Oriental Trading Co. has a lot of cute boxes for that sort of thing... some Chinese takeout containers, regular boxes, etc.
I had just been looking for this sort of thing a couple of weeks ago, but I was looking more for something I could pick up on the way home from work. I ended up finding what I needed at Michael's, but it was harder than I thought it would be. And while I was there, I picked up some wine cylindrical boxes in funky stripes, polka dots, etc. I think they are going to be fun to stack cookies in and they were only $1.99 a piece... a little pricier than a cellophane bag, but much more memorable! The special people will get these! ;-)
The Container Store also sells stuff online too. http://www.containerstore.com/index.j...
Veripack's a pretty reasonable resource, but you usually get a bunch, so be prepared to bake a lot!
A catalog called "Sweet Celebrations" (formerly Maid of Scandinavia) has a wide range of very good options for packaging cookies, candies of all kinds, including fudge and individual wrappers for caramels or kisses, even cake. Some are plain and some printed with holiday themes. I find their service, prices, and selection good but I admit their on-line catalog is unwieldy. If you call them though, I'm sure they will send a print catalog and you can order on-line once you look at what is available.
