Are you looking for a great gift for the baker in your life? If you are lucky, you can reap the benefits of a delicious baked good with the right gift. Baking is a time to bond with your loved ones, whether you enjoy baking together or just eating together. Making memories with your baking buddy will outlast any gift. But to get you started, here are a few ideas for baking gifts.
A pan might just be the perfect gift for a baker
Ramekin dishes are small ceramic bowls used to bake creme brûlées, custards, soufflés, French onion soup and many other creations. They can also be used as prep bowls or a complement to a beautiful table setting. Pair this gift with a creme brûlée torch and fresh vanilla bean pods and you might be in for a treat. Baking crème brulee, a combination of rich, creamy custard and crunchy burnt sugar on top, can be tricky, so if your baker hasn’t tried it, a cookbook will make a perfect companion gift.
A pie dish is also a classic option. It is best to get one that is dishwasher safe, easy to clean, durable and scratch resistant. Emile Henry is made of all natural materials, comes in a variety of colors and a 10 year warranty against manufacturing defects when used in a household environment. If the baker in your life’s specialty is apple pie, then you should pair this gift with an apple peeler. You can also use the apple peeler for potatoes and other vegetables. This will cut their prep time in half, which means more pie for you!
Baking gifts: accessories galore
Silicon baking mats can replace parchment paper or greasy sprays. This nonstick mat can be used as a perfect surface to knead dough or prepare pastries. When used in the oven, it can prevent burning and produce evenly baked goodies. Pair this gift with a silicone pastry brush that matches your baker’s kitchen décor.
Baking can be messy, especially when baking with flour. Spare your baker’s clothes from those white hand prints and get them onto a funny, colorful apron instead. They will always think of you while wearing it or washing it. They might even enjoy it so much, they will hang it up for a colorful decoration and easy access for more baking.
Something decorative so the aesthetics match the flavor
Every serious baker needs a good piping tool, whether they are just starting their love for baking or they are a seasoned professional. This one by Wilton can be used to decorate cakes, cupcakes, deviled eggs and more. This one comes with five easy to switch tips to get started. The pull-out plunger makes it easy to use, whether left-handed or right-handed. Pair this gift with colorful cupcake liners, sprinkles and cake toppers.
Space-saving nesting bowls allow all pieces to be stacked neatly together. These make great baking gifts for new bakers or professional with big or small kitchens. Lightweight and non-slip bases are essential for easy-pour and easy to carry.
A stand mixer is the perfect gift for any baker to leave out on the counter top for easy access. The KitchenAid Mixer comes in a variety of colors and with over fifteen optional attachments, such as the spiralizer or ice cream maker attachment. Your baker can mix, beat, whip up their favorite treats using the wire whip, burnished flat beater, spiral dough hook and pouring shield which are all included. Match this ideal and decorative piece to your baker’s kitchen décor. If your gift recipient already has a KitchenAid mixer, you can safely give an adaptable glass bowl that is microwave and freezer friendly. Pour spout, wide handle and measuring lines for easy use. Tight-sealing lid and dishwasher safe for easy clean up.
Once the cake is baked, cooled and decorated, your baker will need a place to put it, assuming it isn’t immediately devoured. Why not give them a decorative cake stand to show off their creation? A glass cake stand is sure to go with anyone’s kitchen décor and they will be proud to leave it on their countertop all year round. One that is dishwasher safe – even better!
Baking gifts to transport all of those treats
Now that the baking and decorating is done, your baker needs a way to get those creations from their kitchen to your mouth! Try a cupcake carrier, which stacks and stores cupcakes neatly inside. The delicious icing, frosting and decorations will be untouched with this case. You could pair this gift with a cake caddy, or give as a gift on its own. The carry handle and locking cover makes transportation secure.
