I love to bake and cook – so I often am adding things to my “wish list” that make life easier in the kitchen.
We have tons of delicious cookie, bread, and cake recipes here on Clarks Condensed, so I figured it was only fitting to share a few gift ideas for someone who might love to bake as well.
If you are buying for a baker this year, here are some items you might want to consider.
I have been doing a lot more baked goods lately that require you roll out the dough (which I do not enjoy doing). I’m so thrilled to have this new non-stick rolling pin though. It keeps dough from sticking to the pin and the kickstand elevates the rolling pin from the counter, and it keeps it from rolling away. I LOVE it.
More a fan of the traditional wood rolling pin? Not a problem! You can buy beautiful, handmade, and custom wooden rolling pins all over the place. Etsy is definitely my favorite place (you can buy the one above on Etsy or directly from Qualtry’s website -they have tons of customized gifts, and they often have coupons!).
Parchment paper is absolutely essential for all bakers – and the Boolik EasyRoll is one of the highest rated and highest quality brands out there!
This is my absolute favorite product in the kitchen. I have probably six, and I wish I had more! They make baking SO easy – no cooking spray required. These are a must-have for cookies, bread, and more.
Does the baking fan in your life love muffins or cupcakes? Then this should definitely top your list. Silicone muffin baking cups are simple and practical, but they are super helpful. I love not having to buy disposable ones anymore!
I saw these floating around Facebook a while back, and I’ve thought they were super cool ever since. They are measuring spoons that make it easy to level off ingredients. And they come in just about every imaginable color!
Similar to the Levoons, these are leveling measuring cups. I know I could use these in my kitchen!
These are the perfect decor the kitchen!
I have plenty of wooden utensils, but I certainly have nothing is cute and fun as these!
Scentsy has so many great products for every room in the house – including the kitchen. This “Live Simply” one is super fun, especially when paired with one of the baked good scents, such as baked apple pie.
These are SO Fun! They are ready-to-make mixes put into mason jars and beautifully decorated. I have tried some of the Christmas flavors, and they are so delicious!
You can never have too many cookie sheets if you ask me! I think most bakers will appreciate a new set. I especially love the Rachel Ray brand!
I’ll admit, aprons are probably one thing I don’t need – I feel like I get at least one new one a month from different companies. However, I still think it’s a fun gift idea. I was given one that had “Clarks Condensed” embroidered into it at a conference last year, and I LOVE it!
Sally’s Baking Addiction is one of my go-to websites for recipes – so I KNOW her cookbook has got to be amazing. She makes simple and delicious recipes that I think most anyone can make.
New Stand Mixer
I think anyone who spends any amount of time baking understands the importance of having a high quality stand mixer. I absolutely love my Artisan Kitchen Aid, but there are definitely many other brands out there.
And while you are at it, why not throw in a Flex Edge Beater? Forrest just got me one of these, and I am SO excited. You could even buy some mixer decals for them to decorate their current (or future) mixer with.
I’m not kidding when I say my life was changed when I got these. Okay, maybe a little bit kidding…but they really are SO nice to have on those days when you need more than one, but you don’t have tons of space. No more cookie racks on the ground (or is that just me that has done that?).
