Looking for a few Gifts for Bakers this Christmas? I’ve gathered some of my favorite products and also things that I absolutely adore. From aprons to oven mitts and baking pans to tools, there’s a little bit of everything here.
As the countdown to Christmas starts, knowing what to buy your loved ones can sometimes become quite a challenge.
The best way to solve this problem is to think about what they love doing in their spare time or as a hobby. In my case, I love creating delicious treats in the kitchen that can be enjoyed by my family and friends. Baking, in particular, is close to my heart and this time of year with all the cookie exchange parties taking place got me realizing that I needed to put together a gift guide of all the best gifts for bakers for my fellow bakers!
Whether you are an avid baker or you are simply looking to buy for someone close to you that loves to bake, this ultimate bakers gift guide is sure to have at least a handful of items that will pique your interest and get you celebrating this season of giving with all its possibilities of homemade baked goods!
So let’s get to it. Here are my top 33 items for any person passionate about baking.
Cute Bakers Apparel and Keepsakes
If your gift recipient is up for a good laugh or enjoys advertising their love of baking to the world, then you may want to consider something lighthearted and comical such as this (3) Baker’s T-Shirt, or this (13) Procrastibaking Mug!
And if you prefer a more classic look, then you won’t be disappointed by the festive and stylish (19) Williams Sonoma Tartan Adult Apron. It just shouts ‘holiday season’!
Some Cookbook Favorites
Discovering and trying out new recipes or even slight variations of a well-known dish is always exciting for someone who derives pleasure from creating in the kitchen.
As great as Pinterest is, nothing quite beats the traditional hardcover cookbook that you can flip through as you bake.
Some of my favorites include:
- (15) BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts: For the sweet tooth of course;
- (27) Baking All Year Round: Holidays & Special Occasions: Perfect for the holiday season;
- Easy Cake Cookbook: Because life isn’t complete without cake; and
- (1) Easy Homemade Cookie Cookbook: Ideal for cookie exchange parties coming up!
Blank Recipe Books
Blank recipe books are ideal for writing down any favorite baking recipes that you may come across, whether it be a family secret recipe or something that you’ve really enjoyed at a friend’s house.
Choose from this selection of blank recipe books:
- “Best Damn Recipes” blank recipe book;
- Buffalo Plaid blank recipe book;
- “My Favorite Christmas Recipes” blank recipe book;
- Floral Print blank recipe book;
- Fall Inspired blank recipe book.
Must-Have Kitchen Equipment
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to bake without the necessary equipment. Sure, you can still turn something out but it just never quite tastes the same or looks as good as it would using the right equipment.
These three items listed below are, in my opinion, must-haves for successful and enjoyable baking. If you are missing any of these or if your existing equipment is on its way out, then grab these mixers and food processors here:
Colorful Baking Supplies
What’s baking without some color, right? It’s as simple as adding some (24) gel food colors into your cupcake frosting or batter or even adding some fun sprinkles! Some of these fun toppings are vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian which means that they can be enjoyed by almost anyone now.
I especially enjoy this bright (20) gel food rainbow set. It’s perfect for special occasions like birthdays, holidays or for just adding some cheer to your baking.
Plaid Baking Items
Nothing says “Christmas’’ more than a tartan themed baking item. This (18) Tartan Silicone Spatula and (6) Oven Mitt and Pot Holder are both practical and classy, something typical of Williams Sonoma which is why I highly recommend these items.
Perfect for Measuring Ingredients
It goes without saying but measuring is definitely an essential part of the whole baking process. Get this wrong or go on an educated guess and you could get into a bit of baking trouble.
To avoid this, I’ve listed some measuring aids that I’ve found to be most helpful over the years and I’m sure you’ll agree too.
- (5) Digital Measuring Cup and Scale
- (12) Cookie Scoops
- (4) Tovolo Cupcake Scoop/Cupcake Batter Dispenser
- (11) 19-Piece Measuring Cups & Spoon Set
Containers and Stands – Dishes and Boards
After all the effort that goes into your beautiful baking creations, the last thing that you want is for them to get stale from being exposed over a day or two. Usually, I don’t have any issues with remaining baked goods in the house thanks to the family but I can imagine that some do and if that’s you, then you are going want to check out this very helpful (16) Cupcake Carrier and (26) Cake Stand with Dome.
The same applies for storing your baking ingredients and for that I use (21) glass jar sets like these ones.
Apart from colorful sprinkles and edible decorations, another favorite way to beautify baked goodies like cookies and pies is to use some clever decorating devices such as cookie stamps, embossed rolling pins, and piping sets.
Here are some great deals for you that I love for adding design to my baked goods:
- (8) Ateco Cake Stand
- (23) Pastry Wheel Decorator and Cutter
- (2) Cupcake Decorating Tip Set
- Holiday Cookie Stamps
- Russian Piping Tip Set
- (10) Embossed Rolling Pin
Baking Tools as Stocking Stuffers
Baking tools like these are often great ideas for stocking gifts as they are small enough yet also essential items in the kitchen for baking. These could include:
And there you have it! This gift guide of the best gifts for bakers provides you with over 30 practical items that are sure to be meaningful gifts and inspire anyone to get into the kitchen this festive season and create some delicious treats to be enjoyed by family and friends.
