Great gifts for bakers of all skill levels!
Get It Right Ultimate Stainless Steel Whisk
A whisk may seem like a small thing, but it can make the difference between a light and airy baked confection and a flat, dense one! This whisk has 12 steel wires instead of the usual 8-10, and it’s constructed to reduce wrist fatigue.
It comes in several colors, so you can find one to match the decor of almost any kitchen. This would be the perfect gift for a child with a small budget to give their mom or dad, or for someone to give as a stocking stuffer at Christmas.
Farberware Ceramic Pie Dish
Pie dishes need to work extra hard in the kitchen! Not only do they need to evenly bake pies, they need to look pretty so that when the pie comes out, it can be served in the same dish.
This pie dish is made from professional-quality stoneware that won’t pick up odors, flavors, or colors from previous pies. It’s also a lovely shade of teal on the outside, with white on the inside, and it will look great on the table after the pie is baked! It can also go in the freezer and microwave as well as the oven.
KitchenAid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
If you’re looking for the ultimate gift idea for bakers, a KitchenAid stand mixer is a wonderful choice! It is an expensive present, but it will get used countless times a week, especially by someone who loves baking.
The mixer features a 10-speed slide control that can do everything from a very fast whip to a slow stir. It comes with a flat beater, a dough hook, a wire whip, and other optional attachments that are available to purchase separately. This stand mixer makes a great present for beginner bakers…and for professional bakers and everyone in between.

These reusable baking cups make a great gift for cupcake bakers! Not only do they prevent unnecessary trash from paper muffin liners, but they’re also one less thing bakers need to continually purchase before making muffins or cupcakes.
The silicone cups come in a rainbow of colors, pop easily out of a muffin pan after baking, and wash easily so they’re ready for the next batch!
Amazon Basics Digital Kitchen Scale
Bakers may not need a kitchen scale for basic cookies or cakes, but fancier baked goods and pastries can require exact measurements to get the texture just right! This scale has a widescreen LCD display so bakers can see the numbers easily. It will weigh up to 11 pounds of food and can detect down to 2 grams.
This fun little keychain makes a great present for baking enthusiasts! It features a tiny stand mixer charm and a larger charm that says, “Life is what you bake it.” Tuck it into a stocking at Christmas, or add it to the top of a birthday present when you’re wrapping it.

The handheld mixer has 9 speed options and comes with beaters, a chef’s whisk, dough hooks, a spatula, and an instruction book. It also has a snap-on storage case, so everything can be stored easily together.

If your baking friend is always bemoaning the fact that everyone wants an edge piece when she bakes brownies, this is the pan for her! The cleverly placed lines in the pan mean that everyone who gets a brownie gets an end piece. No more fighting among the kids (or among adults who are acting like kids…!)
Extra Long Silicone Oven Mitts
One of the worst feelings is taking a hot pan of cookies or cake out of an oven and burning your wrist (and then making sure you don’t drop the pan!). These oven mitts cover much more of bakers’ wrists and arms, so they don’t accidentally burn themselves if they bump against the oven rack or other hot items.
The mitts come in a variety of colors, so you can pick the one you think your friend would like best!
