I wanted to create a gift guide that would include some unique and affordable gift ideas for bakers…not the stuff you always see. And not stuff like mixers that cost hundreds of dollars (although that’s always an amazing gift.) Now, there are a couple here that are classics, but that’s because they’re still great gifts that any baker would love. But, for this post, I’ve added in some unique and actually affordable ideas for gifts I think any baker would love to get…and let’s face it…I’d love any of these myself.
Novelty Bundt Pans
Personally, I love getting novelty pans for gifts. It isn’t something I’d necessarily go out and get for myself…most of the time I just purchase the old trusty traditional pans, but as a baker, I LOVE getting these specialty pans.
A cool idea is the pick out one of these specialty bundt pans and pack it full of baking supplies like whisks, rubber spatulas, wooden spoons, a tea towel and some oven mitts. Then tie a pretty bow around it. Voila…a thoughtful gift for your favorite baker.
One can never have enough cake stands. Well…maybe that’s going a little too far, but for me, I’d love to fill up an entire room with them. Yeah, I have a problem 😉 I really love these cake pedestals because they’re classic, not over-the-top and very tasteful.
Aprons and Potholders & Oven Mitts:
An alternative to kitchen gadgets are cute aprons along with cute potholders and oven mitts. I know some who even collect aprons and these are super cute. These wrapped up with a couple cupcake potholders would be a really cute gift.
Measuring Cups and Spoons
These aren’t your regular measuring cups and spoons. For gifts, you want to go outside of the box, but you also want to get that baker something they’ll use. And let’s face it, these are things I’d really like to have in my kitchen…things you don’t see in everyone else’s kitchen.
Here’s another idea that’s out of the box. There are tons of different mixer decals and these are just a couple cute ideas.
Who wants a giant bucket that’s full of cookies? Uh…me! A great gift for the a baker is a nice cookie jar. Fill it up with cookies before you give it to them and you’ll be a hero.
These phone cases would be so cute in stockings or attached to a card! Just make sure before checking out that you’ve chosen the correct phone version!
Pick up some super cute baking jewelry! These are both sterling silver…So cute!
Here’s a cute idea and something that’s a little out of the box (ok, pun intended there). As a person who is and has always been obsessed with baking, I’d actually LOVE to get something like this. It’s a baking subscription. Each month, the recipient will get a new bakers box with a different theme. Click the link below to check them out.

Cute Wrapping Ideas:
If you really want to go all out and coordinate your wrapping with the baking gift that’s inside, I found these at Minted and thought they were super cute, so I wanted to include them as well.
And coming soon…I’ll have some free printable gift tags you can download and use for your gifts!
Okay, there you have it! Affordable and unique gift ideas for the baker in your life!
