Holiday cookies/dessert rec's
Depends how much you want to spend, and how big the party is.
Robicelli's holiday flavors are well thought out knockouts without equal.
Blackhound always has interesting holidays flavors.
Tribeca Treats has some interesting seasonal items, like the whoopie pies.
Sugar Sweet Sunshine is a good standby if you need something less refined, and half the price of Robicelli..but I would start with Robicelli.

Wouldn't recommend them if they didn't.
Are you mostly focused on cookies?
Sweetery Truck and the Treats Truck are good for seasonal flavors.
