Naughty? ...or Nice? Sugar Cookies

I made this tray of cookies for small Christmas gifts (yet to be named because they are yet to be given).  It's for a group, so....decisions need to be made...who's feeling naughty?  Who's feeling nice this Christmas? 
I saw this cute little gift cookie cutter awhile ago, and I thought it would be great because with one slice of a knife, gifts turn to coal. 
I baked up my favorite sugar cookie recipe, and then whipped up some icing.  Not to be a broken record, but if you add 1 T. of karo syrup to 1 c.  icing, it will harden after about ten hours, and you can package it up. 
I left the gift icing white, and then just dipped them in sprinkles. 
I dyed some icing a reddish color, filled a ziplock, snipped the end, and piped on ribbon. 
I dyed the coal icing gray (so any part that wasn't sprinkled would look darker), and repeated the process, minus the bow.  Naughty people don't deserve bows. 
I printed off some labels, slipped my cookies into baggies, and tied on the messages.
