A Kitchenaid Hand Mixer makes a fantastic gift for bakers. This model comes with beaters, a whisk and dough hooks. I love my kitchenaid hand mixer because it has a “soft start” feature. This brings your mixer up to speed slowly, which prevents splattering. Retails around $100.
Kitchenaid also makes beautiful stand mixers that commonly last from 15 to 30 years. Make large batches of cookies or bread dough with ease. Retails $200-400 depending on model and features.
Cookie and Batter Scoops
I like to use the small scoop for small cookies like Peanut Butter Blossoms.
The medium cookie scoop is perfect for any standard sized cookie (like my Butter Pecan Cookies).
Emile Henry makes beautiful baking dishes, like this 9″ Pie Dish in Blue (and other colors). For some reason, I never want to splurge on beautiful baking dishes for myself, which is why I think it makes the perfect gift. Retails around $40-50.
Emile Henry also makes a beautiful ruffled loaf pan in red. I only have the pie pan so far, but this loaf pan is on my wish list! Retails around $40-50.
Kitchen towels? Okay, hear me out. They may seem too ordinary to give as a gift. But as a baker, I am frequently finding that my towels are worn out and need replacing. Plus, take a look at this quirky Set of 3 Kitchen Towels. Cute, right? Retails around $10-15.
Or, go a step further and get a personalized kitchen towel for your favorite baker. Retails around $15-20.
Fancy Vanilla Extracts
Quality ingredients can be expensive. How about treating your favorite baker to a high quality bottle of vanilla or almond extract? I’d love to get a bottle of Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract in my stocking. Retails between $15-25.
Measurement Conversion Charts
Second, they make a cute kitchen decoration! Hang on the wall or lean against your backsplash. Retails between $20-30.
Digital scales are surprisingly inexpensive nowadays. They’re especially helpful if you’d like to delve deeper into baking and want to accurately measure your ingredients, like flour.
Cake and Cupcake Decorating Kits
There are tons of huge decorating kits available out there. I’m going to be honest with you. They include way too many little pieces, more than you’re ever to likely use.
My favorite cupcake decorating kit includes 12 pieces and comes in a small box. I’d pair it with a large tip coupler, extra decorating bags, plus some sprinkles or food coloring for a complete gift. Retails between $5-10.
This cake decorating kit includes the basics: 12 decorating tips, spatulas, decorating bags, and smoothing tools. Plus, a revolving cake turntable. Perfect for a beginner cake decorator. Retails between $15-20.
You may think food processors are only for savory food, but I use mine all the time for baking.
I like to use my Cuisinart mini prep food processor to make a single pie crust, like for my Easy Pecan Pie, or to grind almonds for Vanilla Crescent Cookies. Plus, it’s small and easy to stow away in the cabinet. Retails between $35-45.
Looking for something more substantial? Try the Cuisinart 9 cup food processor. Grate cheese, chop vegetables, and more. Large enough to make two pie crusts at once, or use for dinner. Retails between $120-140.
Pie Baking Accessories
Does your favorite baker like to bake pies? Consider gifting some pie weights. They’re used to prevent your crust from shrinking away from the sides or rising unevenly, when baking without a filling. Great when making cream pies. Retails between $5-10.
