Gourmet Baking Gifts 2022
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 -- because we aren't all looking for expensive gifts for bakers this year (I'm looking at you, KitchenAid). You can find all of these gifts for bakers on Amazon, which will make your shopping even easier! I hope you enjoy, and most of all I hope you have a fun, safe, and delicious holiday season!
What to gift a friend who loves baking?
That depends -- is your friend a beginner baker, a casual home baker, or would they consider themselves a Star Baker? Do they mostly bake cookies and brownies, or are they a serious cake decorator? Or maybe they love to bake bread?
To be honest, you're in the right place either way, because this list of gourmet baking gifts and baking gift sets for adults and kids is perfect for everyone. It's full of funny baking gifts for any skill level so you can find the best holiday gift for your favorite baker! Read on to find funny baking gifts and kitchen gadgets for them, or for you!
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
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!
4. Russian Doll Measuring Cups
If your baker loved one is always misplacing measuring cups, or has a drawer full of disorganized measuring cups, these are the most useful gifts 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
Truly words to live by... This hilarious oven mitt is perfect for those who know how to commit to a meal!
6. NinjaBread Men Cookie Cutters - Set of 3
It's a cookie cutter set, but way more AWESOME!
7. "I Can't I Have Cookies to Bake" T-Shirt
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!
8. Nordic Ware Squared Bundt Cake Pan
I love my Nordic Ware Elegant Party Bundt pan, but this uniquely shaped pan is tempting me to get another one! It's the amazing quality that Nordic Ware Bundt pans all have, but in a cool angled shape. It's the perfect cake pan to get everyone talking!
9. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation Matching Couple's Aprons
What's better than a funny apron? Two! These are the perfect funny gifts for the couple that cooks or bakes together, featuring one of my favorite moments from the classic National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation!
10. Nordic Ware Cookie Stamp Set
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!
11. Tiny Baking! Science-Based Baking Kit Gifts for Kids
Perfect for little bakers and their parents, this holiday baking gift set contains lots of tiny kitchen tools and a 48-page recipe book that explains the science behind the baked goods we love so much! Kids will learn how baking powder causes batter to rise, and discover food science concepts like the Maillard reaction! One of the coolest baking kit gifts for the budding food scientist on your list!
12. Personalized Embossing Rolling Pin
What creative baker doesn't love personalized baking gifts? This rolling pin can be customized so that it embosses your cookie and pie dough with the name or message you choose! Perfect for the pastry chefs on your list!
13. Rainbow Titanium-Coated Measuring Cups and Spoons
I love sets of matching measuring cups and spoons, and this stainless steel set is so fun! The rainbow titanium coating is so gorgeous, and they've got a beautiful sleek design.
14. "Nobody Likes a Soggy Bottom" Sweatshirt
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!
15. Countertop Butter Crock
Whether you're a bread baker or just love your morning waffles, having soft, spreadable butter available anytime is a GAME-CHANGER. This butter crock uses water to create an airtight seal, enabling your butter to stay fresh at room temperature so that it's always ready to spread!
16. Beehive Crystal Honey Jar
Everyone loves gourmet baking gifts that look beautiful in their kitchen! 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!
17. Adjustable Cookbook or Tablet Holder
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!
18. "Fold in the Cheese" Flour Sack Towel
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!
19. Le Creuset Stoneware Pie Bird
Pie bakers will tell you, the biggest enemy of a great pie is too much moisture! Without proper ventilation, pie fillings can leak. Or worse, they can keep the pie crust from baking fully, giving you that dreaded SOGGY BOTTOM. But never fear -- the Le Creuset Stoneware Pie Bird is an adorable solution to all your pie worries. It sits in the pie dish and vents steam from the pie filling and supports the upper crust, allowing the pie to bake evenly and beautifully every time! It's a cult favorite among bakers and one of the best quirky baking gifts out there!
20. Sweet Summertime: Seasonal Recipes from Chenée Today
Finishing off the list with a definite must-have for the novice baker or professional baker! 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! My first cookbook, Sweet Summertime, was named a finalist in the 2022 IACP Cookbook Awards, and I'm so proud to share it with you!
What can I put in a gift basket for baking?
In addition to any of the quirky baking gifts above, it's a great idea to include measuring cups or spoons, a kitchen towel, oven mitts, and maybe some gourmet baking gifts like pie weights or a bread lamé. Finish it off with a high-quality ingredient like vanilla bean pods or Valrhona cocoa powder and a copy of your favorite recipe!
