It’s December! Which means a lot of things, but especially that just about every brand will be trying to convince you that it has the perfect gift on hand — so perfect, in fact, that you should buy one for each and every one of your friends. And while it’s smart to be skeptical, the new Madewell collaboration with New York City-based treat shop Milk Bar might actually be the real deal. It’s good for your friend that’s always hosting, or at least for the ones that really love baked goodies.

The four-piece collection consists of a T-shirt ($45) and a bandana ($18.50) that are both designed with a fun cookie illustration, a denim apron ($39.50), and a really cute reusable tin filled with everything you need to make what the brands have coined Blue(berry) Jeans Cookies ($19), inspired by Madewell’s trademark denim and Milk Bar’s sometimes wacky, always delicious treats.

“My team and I are longtime fans of Milk Bar treats, so when we found out that Christina wore and loved Madewell, we immediately thought there was potential for a collab,” shared Joyce Lee, Madewell head designer, over email. “I also thought this collection would be a really fun way to bring the Madewell point of view to a new category in an unexpected way.”

The collection is officially available today at, as well as in select Madewell stores across the country. Considering some items have already sold out, we suggest you move quick!
