Baking Gift Ideas

Let’s celebrate the season of GIVING with my annual Gift Guide for Bakers! Here are more than 50 holiday gift ideas for the baker in your life or if you need ideas for your own wish list. I love giving thoughtful, fun, and practical gifts and I hope this list inspires your shopping.

All of these gifts are items I own or are products I see with wonderful reviews. None of this is sponsored– truly just items I love! A lot of these links are affiliate links.

For more baking gift ideas, here are my 10 best cookie baking tools and 14 kitchen tools every baker needs. I recently updated both. Have fun shopping!


  1. So many ideas…already forwarded this on to my hubby and boys. They know how much mom loves everything related to baking. Thanks for putting this great resource list together.

  2. Diane Campbell says:

    My eight year old granddaughter loves to bake with me and a local department store had Kitchenaid Stand Mixers on 70% off! So I picked one up for her Christmas gift! Am I crazy? Your post gave me loads of ideas for gifts for her in the future. Thank you for all your great ideas and recipes Sally.

  3. I love this list!!! Definitely giving out some not-so-subtle hints to friends about what I might be looking for….. 😉 Loving all of them, but the baking queen shirt, snickerdoodle candle, and sprinkle running shoes are my favourites!

  4. Oh what an amazing list! Thanks Sally for doing this. I have already purchased several of these items in the past thanks to you Sally. This will be my go to list for the future as well. I have many favorites but Sweetapolita sprinkles are just the best and such fun!!! Thanks for always passing along the most helpful information to us. It is very much appreciated!

  5. Wonderful list!! I’ve been wearing Brooks for the past 12 years and never have seen the sprinkled version. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Sally!!!

  6. Sally-such an excellent list of gifts for the baker in your life. I know there are a few things to go with my new KitchenAid stand mixer I just got for my birthday. I am looking forward to getting new baking sheets since my new oven will be bigger!

  7. So many great ideas! I love the Baking Queen tee shirt, and the week cake stand…passing this along to anyone that might listen in my family, but I would be better off just ordering everything myself! Ha!
    Happy Holidays!

    1. Wood cake stand! All week long or any cake stand..such a beautiful addition for that cake!

  8. Thanks Sally! Great list with so many thing I want for myself. The Brooks sneakers are on their way to me as of a few minutes ago,ha!
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
    This is not related to anything in the post but I came across this quote the other day and knew you would love it. ” If the kindest souls were rewarded with the longest lives, dogs would out live us all.”

    1. They are SO cute! Glad you ordered them- hope you love them as much as I do 🙂 And what a sweet quote- thank you so much for sharing! Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. Love this list! So many great gift ideas from Etsy – love supporting those creative shops AND because of this list I now have a new author to follow from my hometown of Milwaukee, WI – Amy Reichert.
    Thanks for sharing, Sally and Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you so much, Allison! Glad you found a new author to follow 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. All of these materials are kinda expensive put together, but I hope to get all of them over the years!

  11. Ruthie Armstrong says:

    Thank you Sally for this great list. It makes shopping very easy and I even ordered something for myself!

    1. You are so welcome! Thrilled you were able to order something for yourself, too 😉

  12. Hi Sally,

    Thanks for the great list!

    Quick question about the wood slice cake stand. I love the way it looks and would love to buy it, but when I read the reviews customers noted it came with a strong odor that did not go away. Have you noticed that?

    Have a wonderful holiday season!

    1. Hi Casey, I’ve actually never experienced a weird smell with mine. Warm holiday wishes to you too!

  13. Love this list! So helpful! I have a December birthday as well, and my sons and hubby always need good ideas, so I am forwarding the links to several of these items. Have a great Thanksgiving Sally! I’m making the sweet potatoes today!

    1. YAY! So glad you loved this list 🙂 Happy Thanksgiving, Lisa!

  14. Sally – love your lists for baking tools and I have purchased quite a few on your recommendation. Do you have any recommendations for a cookie spatula – a spatula to take cookies off the baking pan and onto the cooling rack? Need a new one to start the Christmas baking season.

    1. Hi Julie! I’m so happy you found this list helpful 🙂 Here’s my recommendation for a cookie spatula!

  15. Thanks, Sally!! I love your suggestions and can’t wait to make a little ‘wish list’ for myself 🙂

    1. So happy you enjoyed this list, Lauren! Happy shopping 🙂

  16. Hi Sally,
    Thank you for a great list! I realized that I NEEDED some things….

    1. YAY!! 😉 Happy shopping!
