Would You Buy a Tin of Fancy Cookies?

Last week my pal Donna invited me to partake in a box of cookies she received from a friend. The cookies were from Emporio Rulli ($35.95) and were quite delicious. The box was crammed full of various artisan cookies, including almond-paste specialties, mini macaroons, and shortbread. I usually associate a tin of cookies with stale and boring, but these were great.

In general, something about store-bought tins seems old-fashioned and overly formal. I'd rather receive a box of goofy-looking, homemade chocolate chip cookies. And yet, I know they would make a great gift for grandma on Mother's Day. Which got me wondering, do you buy tins of cookies and if so, do you like them?
