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/Quality. Obviously, price can dictate 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!

We have obviously separated the gifts in this post from cheapest to most expensive. This can help you get an idea of what kinds of baking gifts are generally what amount. Knowing this, you can piece together a gift set yourself or simply buy one thing to be a standalone gift.

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

Cheap 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.
