Best Gifts for Bakers 2021

It’s no secret around here that the holidays are my favorite. I love gift shopping, watching Christmas movies, and of course, all the awesome cooking and baking that comes with the season. This list is just a taste of some of the quirky baking gifts that really get me in the spirit. In it, I try to include a range of price points and interests, and gifts that are functional as well as fun! I hope you enjoy, and most of all I hope you have a fun, safe, and delicious holiday season!

1. “The Giving Plate,” Set of 3

When a friend of ours brought one of these plates to a Christmas celebration a few years back, it instantly became one of my favorite things! Each of these three melamine plates is printed with a poem:

This plate shall have no owner

For its journey never ends.

It travels in a circle

Of our family and friends.

It carries love from home to home

For everyone to share.

The food that’s placed upon it

Was made with love and care.

So please enjoy what’s on the plate

Then fill it up again.

Then pass along the love it holds

To your family and friends.

A simple gesture that is truly emblematic of the love and joy of the holiday season. As someone who shares affection through baking, these plates are really very moving in their simplicity and earnestness. Two things we need more of this season. Best of all, they’re very affordable gifts, and you can even write each cook’s name and the date in permanent marker on the back of the plate to track its journey!

2. Countertop Citrus Juicer

Anyone who loves baking and cooking with citrus, making cocktails, or just having fresh citrus juice in the morning — you NEED this! It’s beautiful on your counter, easy to use and clean, works great!

3. Whisk Charm Earrings

4. Russian Doll Measuring Cups

If your baker loved one is always misplacing measuring cups, or has a drawer full of disorganized measuring cups, this is the gift for them (or for you)! They come in 6 standard dry measure sizes, and they fit inside each other perfectly so they can sit neatly on the counter or in the cabinet!

5. “Leftovers Are For Quitters” Oven Mitt
