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!
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!
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!
If you’ve got a friend who wears their love for baking on their sleeve, then why not on their ears? These super cute dangly whisk earrings are the perfect accessory for the stylish baker!
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!
Truly words to live by… This hilarious oven mitt is perfect for those who know how to commit to a meal!
Ok, these are AWESOME!
No list of quirky baking gifts is complete without a fun tee! This is the perfect t-shirt for everyone who wants everyone to know that they have their priorities in order! Comes in lots of sizes and colors so it works for everyone!
This one’s for all my Friends fans! Remember that cookie jar that was always in the background in Monica and Rachel’s kitchen? This replica is so cute and perfect for holding all your best cookie creations!
These cookie stamps are an easy way to get creative and make gorgeous cookies, without too much effort! The baker in your life will love them!
Perfect for the cook, baker, or grillmaster whose creations sometimes come out… well done. High-quality denim is an ideal unisex style!
I love sets of matching measuring cups and spoons, and this one is so fun! The rainbow titanium coating is so gorgeous, and they’re a beautiful sleek design.
This one’s for the British Bake Off fans! It’s a retro-style sweatshirt that warns everyone of the dangers of a soggy bottom! Keep the baker in your life cozy in this fun and silly sweatshirt!
Trivets are often overlooked, but they’re so necessary! This beautiful set protects your kitchen surfaces while adding a gorgeous accent to your countertops.
Gift a touch of simple elegance with this stunning crystal honey jar with dipper! It’s perfect for those who use honey in baking, or just like to add a drizzle of it to their finished creations!
This is a MUST for busy baking days! Every baker will appreciate the ability to see their recipe quickly and easily while they’re working, and this stand is adjustable so that the recipe can be displayed at the perfect angle!
If you or your loved one is a fan of Schitt’s Creek, you’ll immediately get why this is hilarious! This flour sack towel is the perfect reference to such a funny scene in that show that would be a great gift for anyone!
One major concern for folks who cook and bake a lot is kitchen storage and organization — there are always so many spices, seasonings, and sprinkles that sometimes it’a tough to keep clutter at bay. This magnetic spice rack accommodates up to 45 pounds and includes paper towel rods and hooks — plus it sticks to your fridge, saving so much precious counter space!
Finishing off the list with a definite must-have! Even if it’s holiday time now, it’ll be summer before you know it, and there’s no better gift for a baking fan than a book of sweet recipes! Sweet Summertime is my first cookbook and I’m so excited to share these incredible recipes, baking tips, and guides to help your creations come out perfectly. It’s available in instant download e-book format, or as a paperback available through Amazon Prime!
