Things to Consider When Buying Gifts For The Baker

There are a few things you’ll want to consider before you start just buying gifts for bakers that you know. Here they are – in no particular order!

Price

You can find gifts for bakers in all different price categories. What type of gift you get really depends on how well you know the person and how much money you have set aside for the gift. The good news is that there are lots of great baking gifts that are quite affordable!

Affordable Gifts For The Baker: Baking lends itself well to buying smaller gifts. This is because there are just so many possible accessories that you can buy to help a baker perfect literally hundreds of different recipes and baking styles.

Baking cookies is going to require a different set of tools (read: gifts) than a pie, right? So figure out what your baker needs and buy something accordingly. You can even add a few small accessories to a larger gift!

Mid-Range Gifts For The Baker: Mid-range gifts for the baker in your life are different from cheaper gifts. Usually, these gifts are a desired purchase that fits in well with their baking style and kitchen set-up. Small gifts can be bought and used whenever, but larger gifts are usually pieces that allow bakers you know to take their baking to the next level.

These gifts also include the classic “upgrade” gift. This means, for example, that they already have a cheap baking sheet and you buy them a way better non-stick version, for example.

High-End Gifts For The Baker: Ah yes, the high-end gifts for bakers. These gifts are typically for the bakers who take their craft very seriously.

These gifts are for the bakers who need the top-of-the-line accessory to do their job/hobby right. The bakers who want to take their presentation to the next level. You know that baker? Then a top-level mixer or fancy cake stand might be for them. These gifts are handy because you only need one and then you are done.

Quality

Obviously, price can dictate the quality of the product but this is not always the case. The best mixers are genuinely expensive – but they do the job right and are tried and tested so it’s worth the investment.

As for cookie cutters, it doesn’t necessarily matter if you buy cheaper ones – as long as they don’t stick or break and are a shape your baker likes! Reading the reviews online before making a purchase will usually help you determine how good the quality of an item is!

Purpose

In baking, this is an important one. When you are buying a gift, think about whether it’s in the realm of what your baker does. This will help determine its usefulness and therefore its purpose.

For example, is your baker exclusively a pro cake maker? Then maybe don’t buy cookie cutters as a first choice gift for them. See what we mean? Something like an apron or a recipe book, however, can be used by different bakers so gifts like these can be a great choice if you are unsure what kind of baker you are buying a gift for.

And there you have it – 19 of the best gifts for bakers that cover different price ranges. In the end, you can’t go wrong with some of these gifts. A recipe book might not be used as often as a great mixer, but it will always find use some time or another. If you end up buying for your baker, let us know what you bought and what they thought… we’re curious!

As always, Stay Curious,
