From cheap stocking stuffers to the big wow-em gifts, buy one of these 10 best gifts for bakers, and your loved one will be overjoyed!
Did you know that there are more than 50 gift-worthy recipes for sweets and treats right here on this website?
Yeah, I love to bake. A lot.
Baking is fun – especially when it’s for other people. It’s a great stress reliever and is an easy way to do something that is creative and fun for the whole family.
You know what I also love? Easy.
And there’s nothing easier than my Amazon Prime membership. Seriously. It’s even become a joke between me and my husband. Amazon Prime boxes show up on our doorstep and half the time I’m not even sure what to expect in them! (Scheduled diaper delivery is heavenly.)
So, it’s no surprise that Amazon is my go-to source for finding my favorite baking products. Baking sheets, cutting boards, cookie cutters, and even kitchen appliances…most of our kitchen has been stocked through Amazon.
So, if you or someone else you know speaks their love language through baking, I’m sharing today some of my absolute favorite items (and a few things I still want).
From stocking stuffers, to the big wow-em gifts, you’ll definitely find something to share in these gifts for bakers you love.
10 Perfect Gifts for Bakers:
Chances are, most bakers you know have a Kitchen Aid mixer already on their counters. But a list for bakers and home cooks just wouldn’t be right without it.
But, if you know someone who would love a Kitchen Aid mixer, I highly recommend the 6-quart model with the bowl lift. Having used both the tilt-head and bowl-lift models, the bowl-lift is significantly more convenient (no tugging it in and out from under counters), and the extra capacity is essential for large batch baking like my favorite 5-dozen per batch chocolate chip cookie recipe.
One of the best things about Kitchen Aid mixers is the dozens of attachments and accessories available. While most bakers will already have the standard beater blade, whisk and dough hook, this scraper blade is an amazing upgrade at an affordable price.
My mother-in-law gifted me one last Christmas, and it’s pretty darn awesome. No more scraping down the bowl while mixing, let the blade do it all for you!
Just make sure you get the right size for your loved one’s Kitchen Aid model. Thankfully, the manufacturer made it as easy as possible to figure that out.
Think this is a waste of money? So did I. Until I made homemade apple pie, and then homemade applesauce with my daughter. But wait, there’s also apple butter and scalloped potatoes! Not to mention how much fun the kids have with it.
After 10 years and 4 different sets of plastic measuring cups (even expensive plastic ones!), we finally gave up and purchased this set of measuring cups last year.
The measurements are etched into the metal, meaning they won’t ever fade. The bottoms are nice and flat, which is great for pressing down a crumb crust. They even have extra measurements on the sides, so you can use the same cup for more than one measurement. AND a tiny little pour spout on the side.
As a matter of fact, I think a second set of these might just get added to my wish list this year….
As far as gifts for bakers goes…purchasing a good-quality cake stand may sound luxurious. But as someone who owns five (yes 5!) cake stands, I can tell you that they come in handy all the time.
Putting baked goods on something pretty is fun on its own, but cake stands are also awesome for holding buffet food at parties or as pretty decor if you have open shelving or cabinetry.
Tip: Make sure to get something fairly neutral so it goes with absolutely everything.
I can’t find the exact model of the baking stone we use, but this version is very similar and gets great reviews. We use ours every weekend for pizza night (saves so much compared to delivery!). And someday we’ll actually try it for baking bread…because who doesn’t love freshly baked bread?
I complained about our kitchen timer to my mother-in-law one day and a few days later this timer showed up on our doorstep…and I’m in love. Those extra timers are fantastic for recipes with multiple steps, and are really easy to use. Plus, once a timer is finished it starts counting up, which is so important when you’re stuck in the bathroom with a potty training toddler and can’t get to your oven right when the timer goes off.
Is there a holiday season that your loved one looks forward to most each year? I bet there’s a baking pan for it! Seriously, as of writing this there are thousands of results for specialty baking pans in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Pumpkins, skulls, roses, hearts, donuts, butterflies, and even mustaches! Take a look for yourself at all the fun baking pans and liners you can get these days. I bet you’ll find something your loved one will melt over.
Variety may be the spice of life, but storing a variety of cookie cutters gets plain cumbersome. I love the idea of being able to make pretty fluted edge cookies or plain edged cookies with just one set of cookie cutters.
We’ve purchased and re-purchased several packs of flour sack towels though the years, and they are hands down our favorite towels to have on hand. The thin fabric is perfect for absorbing spills, and actually drying off your dishes. While ours are plain white, I love all the different printed varieties available. (Think the chickens above are cute? Check out the hedgehogs!)
