Whatever’s happening this holiday season, know that you’re not alone in its challenges. Gifting something thoughtful to another baker in your life is a wonderful way to spread joy. Here are 70+ 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.

    Just another reason I follow you… not only do you provide useful tools and gifts, but you include the links and you even promote other chefs cookbooks! You’re so humble! Thanks for always providing great recipes and excellent content! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I am so glad you posted this! I just made a mental note yesterday to do a search on your site for baker must haves for my stocking ;). Particularly, I have been trying to function without owning cookie scoops for years and this Christmas that needs to change lol. I feel like most of your recipes that I frequent use the 1.5 size so I’m going to start there! Happy holidays! P.S. I am never going to enjoy pumpkin anything without homemade salted caramel drizzle again now lol. P.P.S. I have your Great Pumpkin Pie, No Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake and Best Pumpkin Cake Ever all prepared for tomorrow… and that’s only for a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 littles). Thinking of skipping the meal altogether and just having dessert haha. Thank you so much for helping me make holidays festive, fun and delicious for my loved ones! My family totally thinks I am a baking legend because of SBA. Thankful for you! I am such a fan girl, happy Thanksgiving Sally! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for the kind and thoughtful note, Janel! Sounds like you have a delicious Thanksgiving ahead of you 🙂 Have a wonderful holiday!

  3. I may or may not have forwarded this post to my husband so quickly I ripped a hole in the space-time continuum.

    According to his family, I’m really hard to shop for. I don’t think I am, but now he has a list to give them! He just has to, you know, remove the things that I already have 😉

  4. This looks awesome! I may add four of them to my wishlist! Thank you Sally! Again.

  5. Wonderful ideas–thank you!

  6. Thank you so much for your generosity… as always you are always a blessing to us home bakers… thank you for the ideas and continue to inspire us! God bless u always

    1. Thanks so much for the kind note, Zeny – I appreciate your readership!

    What a fantastic list! As a follower from Canada I am grateful that many of these things can be found on amazon.ca. I am also beyond excited to see you recommending this sprinkle company – Sweetapolita! They are a Canadian company and their sprinkles are phenomenal. I have a professional baker friend in my life and these are the sprinkles she almost exclusively uses. I also can attest to the fact that I have eaten numerous baked items [more than I am willing to confess to!] From several bakeries [that I don’t know the owners of] who also exclusively use the sprinkles and I can personally attest to the fact that not only are they gorgeous but they also taste good. That can be a hard combination to find! Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving!

    1. They’re my favorite! So many fun colors and designs. Thanks for reading this gift list, Julia!

  8. As always, a wonderful list of so many options for gifts! I also love that it came out on my birthday. Guess I’ll have to share this with my husband.
    Thanks Sally!

    1. So perfect 🙂 Happy belated birthday, Amy!

  9. I know this sort of off topic, but does anyone know where I could get a temporary tattoo of a Kitchenaid mixer?

  10. I am looking at the reviews on Amazon for the USA Baking sheet you recommended. Many said it warped, became discolored and/or the coating pealed off. Have you had any problem with any of these?
    Thank you
    Diane

    1. Hi Diane, I’m just seeing your comment/question now so my apologies for the delay. I’ve never had my USA Pans warp before but they can become discolored and peel coating if they’re put in the dishwasher. (Hand wash is recommended.) I also really like Nordic Ware half sheet pans, also linked above.

    Hello Sally,
    Could you recommend a highly rated bench scraper? I didn’t see that in your list.
    Thank you!!

    1. Hi Peggy! I own a couple bench scraper and my favorite is by the brand OXO. (I love most of their kitchen tools.) Here it is on Amazon, but I think you can purchase it at many kitchen retailers: https://www.amazon.com/OXO-Multi-purpose-Stainless-Scraper-Chopper/dp/B00004OCNJ
