I am in Ireland and have bought these bags for about 4 years now to use for my giant chocolate chip cookies.Sometimes my cookies only just fit into the bag.Great buy.

I used them a lot for everything, not just for sweets or biscuits. I used them as 'thank you' bags for my children birthday parties, filled with small toys and sweet for all the children to take away. I used them in the bathroom guest`s filled with loose bath sugar. For Easter I put some shredded colored tissue paper and a small chocolate eggs for friends and family when they stay with us. Very good. I don't mind the size, they are perfect.

I use these bags a lot, for christmas goodies in my homemade hampers and during the year for other gifts too. They are a great price for so many bags. I would love to see a smaller size... i cut these in half and re-seal with a heat sealer but it is a lot of hassle!!

Your Christmas presentation bags are excellent. why the flimsy rubbish ones you have for the remaining part of the year. Very disappointing for Lakeland.

What a disappointment?”
I so wish that I had read the reviews on these bags before I purchased them in store. What a disappointment? The bags are thin and flimsy with 'no body' to them. I was expecting a cellophane bag that was of good quality to package my culinary efforts. I had to abandon them and go and buy some others. Very disappointed and not the quality I was expecting from Lakeland.

not what i thought they'd be”

Bought these based on the other suggested items that pop up when you are searching. I was looking at the presentation stickers and these bags were suggested to me as other things i might like to consider, I therefore thought the the bags would be like the ones shown in the Presentation-Stickers image - Alas these are very floppy bags, made of very soft plastic, and not the very stiff crinkly more proffessional bags as shown in the Presentation-Stickers image. Bit disappointed-not what i wanted.

I bought these to package food for an event. They were lovely. Maintained their shape and no ''crimped'' look with the ribbon.

not what i expected”
Thought these would be fantastic for putting some cakes and christmas cookies in for gifts for christmas and the dimensions seemed perfect for this. However they have been delivered now and i belive the dimensions are wrong, infact they resemble a similar shape to a bottle gift bag which unfortunatly doesnt give me a big enough base to fill with delicate treats. Great idea though and definatly a good buy if that's the shape you are after.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry the bags haven't been as expected. We've looked at the dimensions and they are correct. When they are taken out of the packing they do ressemble bottle bags but they do open up to offer a gussetted base to fill with your required items. We'll be in touch shortly to help further.
Great value, very useful”
At a very useful size, and at this price they are fantastic value. It really makes a difference to my sweets and chocolates when presented in these with a nice little bow. Any plans for a smaller size?

I have used these bags for the first time to present home made biscuits and mini muffins for sale at a charity event. Tied with coloured ribbon, they looked really good.

They do the job”
I really wanted cellophane bags for cakes and biscuits as I believe they keep the contents fresher, but bought these instead - and although they don't have the look I was after they still do the job very well and a pretty ribbon does wonders!

Great for a Professional Look”
I love these bags and have been using them for years, I use them for when I make tablet at Christmas for presents and tie them with ribbon, they are also great for many other uses as they give a professional look, would like them in a size which would take the size of a cake made in Lakeland's 2lb loaf tin they are wide enough but not quite long enough to tie at the end with ribbon but they can fold up at the end and close with a decorative sticky label.

Change of Quality”
Always buy these to put cupcakes in as treats for family ect. always buy 3 or 4 packs at a time but the last ones I bought have had a dramatic change of quality really really dissapointed in them. The hunt is on again now to find stronger ones.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. The buyer has confirmed that the bags we're selling now are from a different production batch, however, their quality should be the same as previously as the supplier has confirmed the bags are made from the same material and in the same factory as previously.We'll be in touch shortly to help.
Was given the task of buying some presentation bags for gifts & not much time to get this done. Knew I couldn't go wrong with Lakeland so had a pack put by in my local store but when I came to use them, just like some other reviewers was so incredibly disappointed with the quality. Flimsy, not good at all and just so surprised. My first real disappointment with Lakeland.

Ideal for gifts”
As a keen baker there is nothing more I love than giving homemade cupcakes, cookies etc as gifts. These bags are a good size and with a little imagination can look stunning. I will continue to buy them and would recommend them too!

Not what they were”
I have been using Lakeland presentation bags for several years. I ran out of last year's supply, and bought what I thought was the same product yesterday. However, the material of the bags has changed (I was informed in the store today), and is now not shiny, but looks like any ordinary Lakeland plastic bag. For presentation purposes I want my bags to be shiny and completely transparent. Please, could you possibly go back to what you used to make?

great idea but ...”
these bags are a great idea and home made gifts look great in them but am I the only one that has trouble getting them open with out them splitting down the creases. Some times I split 1 in 3 bags no matter how careful I am. Could they be 'stronger' please?

Nice for presents!”
Nice bags for present giving. The size is fine and as someone said they can always be trimmed. The quality is not quite as good as I had hoped, maybe a little thin. If you are buying for Christmas then I recommend the Christmas bags instead. That said, I will be using them!
