Anyone with an avid baker in their life knows what a blessing it can be. They also know, though, how difficult it can be to shop for a baker, especially bakers who already seem to have everything. Finding a gift for a baker doesn’t have to be difficult, though. Here are five gift ideas for the avid baker in your life.
Some recipes call for weighted objects rather than volumes, which means a lot of converting (or internet searching) to get the correct conversion. If your baker doesn’t have a kitchen scale, this gift will save them a lot of time and trouble later, or may encourage them to try recipes they’ve been avoiding. A scale will be a much-welcomed addition to your baker’s kitchen.
Young or amateur bakers may not be able to justify buying a nice, large piping set for themselves, so do it for them. They’ll love getting to try new decorations or tricks they’ve been dying to learn. The plain-looking cupcakes you’ve grown used to will get fancier every time, and learning to decorate may even renew your baker’s passion.
Bakers go through a lot of supplies quickly, so sometimes the best gift is simply replenishing their dwindling stock. Get them new, cute cupcake paper, or buy them new food dyes or cooking spray. Take care of the little things for them so they can spend their time worrying about which recipe to try next.
So your baker invested in a KitchenAid stand mixer, but did they invest in the accessories, too? You could consider getting KitchenAid covers for their mixer to help minimize clean up after, or an ice cream maker attachment for them to try branching out or decking their desserts in their own ice cream creations. Appliance accessories will make your baker’s life a little easier, and may encourage them to branch out and try new things.
Your baker made a dozen a beautiful 3-tier cake only for it to be placed on some unused counter space. After working so hard on them, bakers want their creations to be seen, and a cake stand or cupcake tree will do just that. They’ll love getting to show off what they made in such a pretty way, and a stand will save counter space as well, a win for everybody.
Buying a gift for the baker in your life doesn’t have to be difficult. There are tons of options out there, even some your baker hasn’t thought of! These are just five gift ideas for your baker, and there are many more options out there.
