Baking Gift Ideas
Let’s celebrate the season of GIVING with my annual Gift Guide for Bakers! Here are 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– just truly items I love!
Measuring Cups – These are incredibly practical. I love that the handles are magnetic so they stick together. For a colorful alternative, brighten up your kitchen drawers with these beautiful measuring cups and measuring spoons.
Liquid Measuring Cups – I love this set of 4 liquid measuring cups. If tight on storage space, they double as mixing bowls too.
Flour/Sugar Storage Containers – These are the best bulk storage containers… and I’ve tried plenty! They aren’t fancy but they are a staple in my kitchen.
Glass Mixing Bowls – This set of 10 mixing bowls is a wonderful addition to any baker’s kitchen. They’re microwave safe and I appreciate the various sizes– a bowl for everything.
KitchenAid Hand Mixer – One of my most-used kitchen tools! Mine is over 12 years old and still running strong.
Food Processor – I use mine for nuts, sauces, and so much more– it’s helpful and versatile.
Kitchen Scale – In baking, precision is everything and that slight mis-measure could spell baking disaster. This is by far the most important tool in my kitchen.
Rainbow Whisks – Because why not? I smile whenever I use mine!
Adjustable Rolling Pin – The simplest way to roll cookie dough, pie dough, pizza crust, and more. The adjustable discs make it easy to roll any thickness – no more uneven dough. Pair with these cookie cutters for every season!
Americolor Gel Paste Kit – I use this gel color kit for practically everything: royal icing, frosting, red velvet treats, and cake batters. The colors are beautiful! For softer colors, I love this pastel kit.
Cookie Scoop – Gift all three sizes for a complete set! I use these for cookies, truffles, ice cream, meatballs, and as a melon baller too. Very handy!
Alphabet + Number Cookie Cutter Set – The easiest way to make personalized edible gifts. You can literally spell any name and celebrate any age!
Sprinkles – The happiest gift! They make such a fun stocking stuffer, hostess gift, etc. Use code SALLYSBAKING15 for 15% off. 🙂
Donut Pan – Awesome quality and inexpensive.
Cupcake Carrier – I cannot emphasize how much I love this and the cake carrier too. When I need to cover and transport baked goods with a lot of frosting, these containers make it easy and don’t ruin the frosting, either. The base for the cupcake carrier is reversible so you can transport cookies, brownies, and more all in one place. I also store decorated cakes and cupcakes in these carriers in the refrigerator– it’s a convenient way to keep them fresh.
Bundt Cake Pan – The best. The bundt cake releases easily AND it’s really easy to clean. This mini bundt cake pan is also adorable because sometimes it makes more sense to have cute mini cakes instead of a large one!
Wilton Decorating Tip Set – This set has it all. For sugar cookie decorating, I use round tips 1 – 5. For cupcake decorating, I use any of the star tips. Or tip 352 for sunflower cupcakes. To complete it, I’d gift disposable piping bags too.
Kitchen Torch – Not a baking necessity but a fun addition to a well-stocked kitchen! Perfect for baked Alaska, crème brûlée, and more.
Home & Personal Accessories
Rimmed Cake Stand – I love the rimmed edge for something a little different!
Wood Slice Cake Stand – I love mine! Gorgeous and wipes clean every time.
Heart Ramekins – These are oven-safe and they’re great for individual fruit crisps and crumbles. So cute.
Snickerdoodle Candle – Smells like cookies all day long. Is there a better gift?!
Sprinkle Running Shoes – I only run in Brooks shoes and just bought myself this exact pair! I have another pair of sprinkle sneakers that I showed you earlier this year, but I don’t think they’re online anymore. Pair with pink sprinkle socks for the sweetest gift.
Floral Apron – My absolute favorite apron.
Bakers Gonna Bake Apron – You can personalize it!
Life is What You Bake It Towel – Love this motto.
Procrastibaking Print – I think we are all guilty of this. 🙂
Cute Mug – For anyone who would rather eat cake for breakfast!
Marble Cookbook Holder – Pretty on the counter with or without a cookbook.
