If you’re looking for gift ideas and you have a baker in the family then it’s not so hard to find something that they will love to receive. Our article of gift ideas for the baker will help give you some inspiration, whether you’re looking for a stocking filler or a main gift. We have chosen a few items from each step of the baking process that we think would make a great gift.
Essential electrical tools to make mixing up and weighing out ingredients so much easier. Bakers will love this stand mixer from Andrew James which comes at a great price. Or why not choose a simple hand mixer as a cheaper option. Kitchen scales are always a useful tool in cake making too as it’s important to measure out ingredients accurately.
We never seem to have enough mixing bowls, or one the right size when mixing up ingredients so we don’t think you can go wrong with a mixing bowl gift. The Oxo Good Grips mixing bowl is a quality product and the bright multicolour Joseph Joseph set of bowls and measuring spoons stack brilliantly so it is great for space saving in cluttered cupboards. Not forgetting the scraping and hand mixing spatula, always useful and a great stocking filler idea.
Baking containers, dishes, moulds and tins are always useful for the baker who loves to experiment. Here are some classic Le Creuset stoneware ramekins which come in a range of colours and are a little bit of luxury to the baker. There are also sets of cake tins in different shapes for the traditional baker. For a more quirky unusual gift or stocking filler why not buy a silicon mould for a giant cup cake, no one can go wrong with that!
First, whenever cake decorating, it is wise to wear an apron! If you are looking for a gift for someone who likes to decorate cakes, then these cake icing and decorating sets would be most welcome.
Finally, inspiration is needed for the baker along with some great recipes to follow. As big fans of the Great British Bake Off, we think the following baking recipe books would make great gifts for all bakers.
