Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Baker

The ultimate gift guide for the baker in your life features an assortment of practical, fun, and unique items, all specific for anyone who loves to bake.

While my Foodie Gift Guide is perfect for anyone who loves food and/or spending time in the kitchen, I created this gift guide with bakers in mind. I share all of my favorite baking products that I have used and loved throughout my many years of baking!

Baker Gift Guide


Half Sheet Baking Pans – An absolute staple! These Vollrath aluminum baking pans are the best I’ve ever used. They’re worth the splurge – they won’t warp and the uses are endless. Bonus – my favorite wire cooling racks fit perfectly inside.

Cookie Scoops – I own at least 6 cookie scoops and highly recommend at least one of each of the smaller sizes for any cookie baker. I also use mine for portioning out muffin, cupcake, pancake, and waffle batter. These are the sizes I have in my kitchen: 1.5 tablespoon, 2 tablespoon, 1/4 cup, 1/3 cup and, 1/2 cup scoops.

Baking Stone – I’ve had this baking stone for over a decade and it’s perfect for making pizzas and breads – they bake up with perfectly crisp crusts.

Mixing Bowls – Love this set of 3 nested mixing bowls with non-slip bottoms.

Measuring Cups (and measuring spoons) – Never lose a measuring cup or spoon again! The handles are magnetic and simply click into place for a neat, organized stack.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer – A classic, timeless addition to any baker’s kitchen.


Pie Crust Shield – Prevent burnt pie crust edges with this simple to use pie crust shield. Pop it onto your pie when the middle still has a bit to go, but the edges are perfectly golden.

Parchment Muffin/Cupcake Liners – These parchment liners are my favorite for muffins and cupcakes. They peel away beautifully!

Oven Mitts – A really great quality pair of oven mitts is a must-have for anyone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen.


Personalized Recipe Notecards – Recipe notecards are timeless! I love looking through my collection of them – some of my very favorite recipes can be found on handwritten notecards.

White Cake Stand – A cake stand for any celebration.

Personalized Cookie Jar – Such a sweet gift for the ultimate cookie baker.

Made with Love Stickers – Personalize homemade baked goods with these cute stickers.

Personalized Cake Pan – A 9×13-inch pan is a baking essential, and this one comes with a personalized lid. This would be such a great pan to take to potlucks, parties, and more.

100 Bakes Scratch Off Poster – An epic baking bucket list.

Cookie of the Month Cookie Cutter Set – A cookie cutter for every month! Use these to make cut-out sugar cookies or chocolate sugar cookies.


Sprinkles Ornament – A sparkly addition to the tree (and a fun gift topper).

Live, Love, Bake Print – Frame this print for a complete gift.

OXO Storage Containers – My favorite storage containers for baking ingredients.

TELL ME! What would you add to this list? I’m always looking for new ideas!
