Find the perfect gift for the baker in your life with this Christmas Gift Guide.

So I am now in Christmas mode and after posting my Gingerbread Fudge recipe it seems that you guys are too.

2020 certainly hasn’t been the year many of us had planned but we have made the most of it and now we can start getting excited for Christmas and (hopefully?) spending time with our family. So I have put together this gift guide which is perfect for the baker in your family.

This is not an ad I have included all these products because I use or have used them before and have been super happy with them. I have not been paid to advertise any of these products.

I should also mention that these are listed in no particular order.

BakedIn Subscription Boxes starting form £30 for 3 months.

First up is BakedIn Subscription. I have been a subscriber to this for years. Each month you are sent a box in the post with all the dry ingredients to make a delicious bake. The only thing is you don’t know what that months bake is until you open the box.

You do get a tiny hint when they send out the list of wet ingredients which you will need to purchase but normally there are only 2-5 things on this list including butter and sometimes fruit. Previous boxes include Chocolate and Pecan Millionaire Squares, Lemon and Blueberry Biscotti and Pear and Frangipane Tart.

They also have a new bread subscription. Similar to the baking subscription you will receive all the dry ingredients to make a different type of bread each month. Depending on who you are buying this for you can subscribe to one or both. 

The Sunday Girl Company – Retro Aprons from £29.99

 I now have two of these aprons and I absolutely love them! They are beautiful, retro kitsch inspired aprons that come in lots of funky and fun designs and colours.

The aprons come wit ha generous back tie which can be tied at the back or wrapped around to tie at the front. One size fits UK 8-26 and has a neck adjustment slider for the perfect fit.

I honestly don’t know what I would do without my apron. I am such a messy baker and it always ends up covered in flour, chocolate and whatever else I am baking with.

You can also get unisex aprons and children’s aprons too.

Sugar and Crumbs Icing Sugars – £2.99 for individual packets of £14 for the seven winter flavour bundle.

Okay, so I love these icing sugars. They are perfect for cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes, macarons basically anything and everything that you would use normal icing sugar for.

This year Sugar and Crumbs have 7 Winter Flavours and the all sound amazing! You can buy them as a pack of seven or individually. The pack of seven includes Pumpkin Spice, Rum and Raisin, Irish Cream, Toasted Marshmallow, Gingerbread, Apple Crumble and Toffee Apple. I mean…omg!

All flavours are alcohol free they are also suitable for vegetarians, vegans and are gluten and dairy free.

All you need to do it substitute your normal icing sugar for the Sugar and Crumbs or if you don’t want as strong a flavour use half normal icing sugar and half flavoured.  

Mason Cash Cake Storage Tins – £32.00

I love a pretty cake storage tin and this set of three from Mason Cash are perfect!

These cake tins are part of the In the Forest range. Each cake tin fits inside the other so that they can be easily stored.

They are perfect for storing cakes and bakes in the house or if you need to travel with them.

All three cake tins have embossed patterns inspired by mid-nineteenth century folk tales. The intricate patterns feature woodland creatures including owls, deer’s and hedgehogs.

Make Your Own Hamper

This would be the perfect personalised gift to get the baker in your life. This way you would be able to pick up baking bits and bobs and pop them all together.

If you are not sure what to add to the hamper then why not try things like Piping Tips, Spatulas, Palette Knifes or ingredients such as the individual bags of Sugar and Crumb Flavoured Icing Sugar, a ginormous tub of Biscoff Spread or even some caster sugar and flour.

You could also get some Sprinkles, Food Colourings, Piping Bags. There are so many different things you could get. Why not look for some personalised bits and bobs from Not on The High Street or Etsy.

If you are still struggling you could also head into your local Hobby Craft and ask their staff who are wonderful and will be able to point you in the right direction.

Crumbs and Doilies Biscoff New York Cookie Kit – £18.00  

Look at these cookies! I mean just look at them! How amazing do they look? And you can recreate them at home with this cookie kit.

These cookie kits come in so many different flavours, there are also cupcake, cake and brownie kits too. They come with all the ingredients you need to make the kit of your choice. These cookies are filled with milk and white chocolate chips, Biscoff crumbs and a molten, oozy Biscoff centre.

All you need is to add some butter and eggs. You can also freeze the cookies and enjoy them whenever you want!

Nordicware Bundt Pan – From £45

Nordic ware is an American company who make the most incredible bakeware. The one thing I buy more of from them than anything else is there bundt pans.

There bundt pans come in so many amazing designs. All you need to do is add your cake batter and bake in the oven. Once you remove your cake from the pan it has the most wonderful design on top. I normally finish mine off with some chocolate or a simple icing.

Tala Bake and Decorate Set – £37.99

This is the perfect gift for someone starting out on their baking journey.

This kit comes with everything you would need to make delicious and incredible cakes and gives the recipient something to build on.

This set includes   

12 Cup Bun Tin

Cake Cooling Tray

25cm Stainless Steel Whisk

Measuring Spoon Plastic Set 6

Measuring Set 7 Pieces

FSC Set 3 Utensils

Silicone Spoon with Wooden Handle

Icing Bag Set with 8 Nozzles

Original Blue Icing Design Cupcake Cases Pk32

Palette Knife Angled Small

Cupcake Corer

KitchenAid Stand Mixer – From £349

This is by far the most expensive gift on my gift guide. I would be lost without my Kitchenaid I have one in Almond Cream. The mixer comes with a Stainless Steel Bowl, Dough Hook, Wire Whisk, and a Flat Beater perfect from making everything from meringues to breads to cakes.

If you would love to buy a mixer for a baker but the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is out of your budget why not get them a KitchenAid Hand Whisk or even a mixer from another brand. There are so many incredible stand mixers and hand mixers out there and they all have their own price range depending on budget.

Sugar and Crumbs Online Classes – From £20.

These classes would be perfect for bakers of all skill levels. Whether your baker loves making cupcakes or would like to be challenged with a larger cake. Learn how to make a Cute Dragon and Castle Cake or Vintage Cupcakes.

Each class gives you access to the private Facebook Group where you are now a member forever! You can then follow the live tutorial as well as meet other members for help and advice.

I hope this Christmas Gift guide has given you some inspiration for what to get the baker in your life. Let me know what you are buying your favourite baker or maybe you are looking to treat yourself. Leave me a comment below or send me an email at aspoonfulofvanilla@outlook.com and let me know.

    My sister loves to bake from scratch, while I’m more of a from a box kind of girl, so I never know what to get her for Christmas! This guide will come in handy when selecting a gift for her. I especially like the hamper idea and all the suggestions of what to put in it. Thank you for sharing! 😊

      I am glad I have been able to help. I am sure she will love whatever you get her for Christmas. With the hamper, you could get little bits and bobs that she would love or some ingredients and make it personal for her.

    Hi Sarah. What a great list of potential Christmas gifts. My wife loves baking (and all the blinkin’ cooking TV shows!) so this has certainly given me some food for thought (sorry!). The cookies look very tempting …

    These are such lovely suggestions. My son is baking mad and I always try and get him something to keep the love alive.

    I love the sound of that icing x x

      Ah, that is wonderful! The icing sugar is one of my favourite things and they do so many incredible flavours, I am sure it would inspire him to bake lots of delicious treats as it can be used in so many different things.
