I fully support any gift that encourages the love of baking. ❤️ Everything listed below is either something I have, something I've gifted, or something I want for myself! Happy Holidays!!
Tools & Ingredients
Half-Sheet Baking Parchment Paper
from King Arthur Flour
Also available in natural and rounds (9” is most popular).
For years I used the roll from the grocery store and just cut to size. But after receiving these as a gift, OMG! A total game changer!! The quality on these is impressive, too. Sturdy enough to reuse.
Maldon Sea Salt, 3lb Tub
Just before baking, I top my chocolate chip cookies (and lots of other goodies) with this flaky sea salt. Gifting a 3-pound tub is admittedly excessive, but also super fun. Here is a more practical 8oz box option.
Sprinkles make everything more fun! And with this dye-free collection, you can now celebrate naturally. (Food coloring, rainbow chips and frosting mix are also available from the brand.)
from Kelly Elizabeth Designs
The pastel design on this baking-themed mug puts a smile on my face. I listed it under "Tools" as coffee has seen many an early-morning baker through! 😉
A Christmas version is available, as well.
Cupcake Beanie Hat
from Neff Headwear
For the love of cute! Multiple colors available.
Eat Cake Bracelet
from Packed Party x LWP
Why, yes. Yes, I would wear this bracelet every. single. day.
Bakers Gonna Bake Sweatshirt
from Miss Jones Baking Co
This sweatshirt was made famous by Martha Stewart & Snoop Dog (yup, you read that right), and I’ve wanted it ever since.
Sprinkles Fanny Pack
from The Cookie Pin
Sprinkles + Fanny Pack = The perfect combination!
I am of course forever partial to my list of My Favorite Baking Cookbooks, but I'm excited to add these two new(ish) releases to my collection:
Zoe Bakes Cakes by Zoë François
Based in Minneapolis (go, Midwest!), Zoë François is a baker-of-all-trades. She has written best-selling books on bread and now has a baking show on Magnolia Network. Her cake book just won the IACP award for best baking book (the Oscars of the cookbook world). You can get a personalized, signed copy direct from her website.
Cookies: The New Classics by Jesse Szewczyk
I am a big fan of all things cookies(!) and already have many, many recipes flagged in this cookbook. It’s filled with creative takes on the classics – without being annoyingly avant-garde. (Brown Butter-Bourbon Snickerdoodles, anyone?)
For the Young at Heart
Mini Doughnut Pan + Mix
from King Arthur Flour
My daughter got this doughnut set last Christmas and it was a huge hit! She loved to bake them and we loved to eat them. A win-win for the entire family! 😉 (There is a regular size version, as well, but mini makes everything cuter.) If looking to round out the set, the chocolate doughnut mix is equally delicious.
I Really Want the Cake by Simon Philip
A heartwarming picture book about a spunky little girl who really wants cake. Lucia Gaggiotti's illustrations make the funny story even more entertaining.
Hasty Baker Card Game
St. Nick brought my daughter this game last year and it is so fun (and easy to learn). Adults will enjoy playing, too, so it’s a great way to all spend time together.
from Make Bake
These adorable edible(!) stickers(!) are an easy way to make your baked goods look even more impressive.
Personalized Tea Towel
from Studio 901 Goods
Personalized gifts always feel, well, more personal. This flour sack tea towel would be a lovely addition to your baker's kitchen. There is also a baking utensil version.
Personalized Gift Tags
from Northwest Paper Studio
Do you know a baker who is always gifting their goodies? Help make their delicious efforts feel even more legit with these personalized tags. (The recipe cards are so lovely, too!)
Cookies & Milk Little Notes
from E. Frances
Packed in a lunch box, tucked into a pocket, slipped under a pillow…receiving a handwritten note on these tiny cards is as cozy as milk and cookies.
The Birthday Party Project
This amazing organization makes sure that all kids are able to celebrate their birthday.
