7 Gingerbread Houses to Buy

When you just don’t have the time for frosting, glue, and a cookie fence

Set your table with these adorably sweet gingerbread houses.

Making and decorating gingerbread houses together as a family is a traditional pastime for many during the holidays. Although in reality, not many eat the whole house, they're something to marvel at when they're done, aren't they?

Take a cander at theese cookie creations!

The downside to hectic schedules, too many extra-curricular activities, and long work days can be that free time is scarce. Maybe there isn’t enough time to build a house of your own, but that doesn’t mean the holiday fun has to stop. 

Plenty of gourmet sites like Williams-Sonoma and Sur La Table have gingerbread houses for sale. And while they maybe a little too perfect, without that droopy roof your brother is known for or your dad’s impeccable candy cane walkway, they certainly bring the Christmas cheer.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that are for purchase. Whether you're adding one to your own home or sending one to your sister who lives a few hours away, these are fantastic holiday sentiments, not to mention delicious.
