The Literate Baker's Top Ten Gift Ideas for the Baker in Your Life
10. Silicone baking mat. Since I first became aware of these things, I've wanted one. The fact that I've managed just fine without one has not dissuaded me in the least.
9. Top-view measuring cups. Both Oxo and Pampered Chef make them; there are probably others. I love mine and use them for all things liquid, whether baking or bar tending.
8. Absurd vintage kitchen stuff. I could spend days on Etsy. I am at times delighted, at times dumbfounded by what people make and sell, but I'm always entertained.
7. Absurd baking-themed other stuff. See also #8.

6. Kick-ass rolling pin. Rolling pins don't need explanation. They just are.
5. Fancy-pants ingredients. We all know how I feel about my fleur de sel. Artisanal chocolate? Awesome. And if someone gave me a big boxful of almond paste? They'd be on my sweet list the whole year.
4. Awesome apron. Being of a femme persuasion, I'm partial to frilly, but there are endless options. I love the one I got for Christmas last year from Flirty Aprons; they make all kinds.
3. Atypical cookie cutters. Seriously, you can find just about every shape, size, and iteration these days. I mean, who would have ever thought that Williams-Sonoma would hook up with Star Wars?
|I have these.|
|And clearly need these.|
2. Silicone scoopy-scrapey-stirry things. Whether you call it a spatula or a spoonula, it's ridiculously useful for many a kitchen task. And since they're silicone, they don't get all wonky if you happen to leave them in a hot pot.
1. Mixer to die for. I know. It's such a cliche. Yet, there is no tool or toy in my kitchen that is more loved or more used than my stand mixer. It isn't even the uber-fanciest of the stand mixers and I heart it. It will change the way you make baked goods. Really. I mean, I'm looking to upgrade to the 20-quart Hobart, but that's just me.

Hope this helps you find the perfect something for the baker in your life. Remember, gifts are about making a person feel special, so whether you spend $2 or $2000, keep it personal and always...
Keep it sweet. Pin It
