Pass It On Plates are interactive traveling gift plates.
They travel from person to person, carrying cookies or other food gifts.
Each plate has a unique tracking number on it which relates to an online 'diary' for that plate.
You can visit our online Plate Diaries to read about the journey of these plates here:

Start a new tradition in your family or neighborhood as your Pass It On Plate tells the story of all the big events and little moments that you celebrate!


Pass It On Plates make great hostess gifts.

You never have to worry about getting it back from a pot luck dinner.

Pass It On Plates are wonderful Thank You gifts.



+ PAINT PEN: Use the special paint pen to permanently sign your name to the plate before passing it on. Each person signs their name on the plate, and as the plate travels it collects the names of everyone who has used the plate. The pen attaches to your PlateWrap so it doesn't get misplaced.

+ PLATE WRAP: Choose your favorite PlateWrap, a re-useable cloth "bonnet" that gift wraps your plate. We have PlateWraps for birthdays, too. Would you like a special color or theme? Convo us and we'll make a special one just for you.

+ BOW: Like a bow on a package, you can pin a Pretty Little Doo Dad to your PlateWrap. We have a large selection of ribbon, bow, and flower doo dads to choose from. Some are even designed to have little gifts tied into them.

In addition to this, Pass It On Plates sold through our Plate It Forward program have your organization's name fired into the glaze on the plate, we set up an info page on our website with links for your organization, and we include a link for more information on every plate diary for each of your plates. It's a great way for you to raise money and raise awareness at the same time.
