Do you need a gift for a baker? This is the ultimate gift guide for bakers. Start here to find something for the cupcake, cookie, cake, pie, or bread baker on your list! There are even some great gift ideas for kids who love to bake.
And, if you’re just a beginning baker yourself and want to get started, check out my guide to basic baking tools that everyone should have.
Gifts Under $25
There are so many gift ideas for bakers that are under $25. Here are some of my favorites.
Flex Edge Beater for Kitchen-Aid 4.5-5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer-Flat Beater Blade with Flex Edge Bowl Scraper
With one of these, the baker on your list won't have to stop to scrape down the edge of their mixing bowl while baking. Before purchasing, do some snooping to confirm that it is compatible with their mixer.
Talisman Designs Adjustable Pie Crust Shield, BPA-free Silicone
This is a great little tool for keeping pie crust from getting burnt.
Baking Gift Sets
A gift set can be a great gift - especially for someone who is newer to baking. And, buying a set saves you from having to collect and package several different items.
Cake Boss Countertop Accessories 3-Piece Melamine Mixing Bowl Set
Cute mixing bowls are always a win!
Banneton Proofing Basket | Liner | Metal Dough Scraper | Professional Scoring Lame | No Plastic | Charles Good Food
If you have a bread baker on your list and they don't have a banneton proofing basket, this would be a really fun gift for them.
GreenLife CC002429-001 Bakeware Ceramic Baking Set, 12pc, Turquoise
With so many baking pans that are silver-colored, a set with a pop of color can be really exciting for a baker (especially one who loves sharing photos)! This whole set comes in at $99.
Edible gifts are always appreciated and bakers will love using them in their recipes.

Vanilla bean paste is the secret ingredient to make the best vanilla frosting ever. It's hard to find in the stores and so special that it even comes with a gift box!
Cacao Barry Cocoa Powder 100% Cocoa Extra Brute, 2.2 lb
You can't find this super dark cocoa powder at the grocery store, but once the baker on your list opens the bag and smells it, they will be in love!
La Tourangelle, Roasted Pistachio, 8.45 Fluid Ounce
Replace the oil in any baked good with a flavored oil, like this pistachio oil, and you get a totally unique and delicious dessert. These flavored oils make great gifts for bakers.
Quality cookbooks are hard to come by. Here are some that I highly recommend.

This book should be in every baker's library. It has all of the basic baking recipes and tips that you need.

This is my favorite kitchen book. It's not a cookbook, but a book that guides you about which flavors go together. It is so inspirational when developing new recipes.

This is a great book to get your baker into breads. It has completely straightforward instructions and step-by-step photos to help even the novice bread baker get perfect results.

The baker in your life has a well-stocked pantry and kitchen gadgets galore. I'm sure that they're missing something in their lives, and these ideas should give you some inspiration.

I LOVE this mat and guides for rolling out dough. It makes everything so much easier. Even if they already have a rolling mat, your baker friend will enjoy the markings and the guide sticks that come with this one.

Personalized gifts are so fun! Bakers will take pride in displaying these in their kitchens.
