We are keeping it even easier by setting up our favorite items in a one-shop stop. No thinking is required! Just pick anything in the shop and I GUARANTEE the baker in your life will be thrilled! We have ideas for mom, newbie pastry chef’s, gift sets, and even young kids.
What do you get mom who loves baking?
Personalized Dish – A dish engraved with a favorite recipe that is also fully functional is truly the best gift for the mom that loves to bake. I love that you can engrave these with the handwritten recipe…so sweet!
Bakeware Set – Durable and reliable bakeware is always a welcome gift by the baker. Mom will love replacing her old stuff with fresh, new bakeware!
Apron – This one is from Magnolia Market and absolutely lovely to wear and wash.
Baking Spice Set – Delight the baker in your life with this deluxe set. Each eight-piece set includes glass jars of Saigon Ground Cassia Cinnamon, Ground Ginger, Ground Cardamom Seeds, Ground Nutmeg, Ground Cloves, Dutched Cocoa Powder, Crystallized Ginger Nibs and Cocoa Nibs.

State Kitchen Towels – Each of these dishtowels celebrates the iconic landmarks of one of the 50 states.
OXO Baking Canisters – Clear so the baker can see exactly how much it contains and it includes a scoop that stores conveniently under the top.
Stand Mixer. – Okay, this is a pretty big item on the list. BUT maybe the baker you are shopping for is a special someone? If they don’t yet have a stand mixer…it is an absolute want on their list. Guaranteed! In my opinion, the classic KitchenAid stand mixer is the gold standard. I love mine and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Ceramic Ruffled Pie Plate – So pretty and functional, this pie plate has a gorgeous ruffled edge that makes Mom’s pie look that much prettier.
Sourdough Starter Set – Perfect for the baker that has wanted to try their hand at baking sourdough bread. Complete with bands, thermometer, and jar.
Brown Sugar Bear – Grab this adorable bear to keep the brown sugar soft and mom won’t have to use that slice of bread anymore.
Marble Rolling Pin – If you’ve watched any of my FB Lives involving pie making then you know that a marble rolling pin is on my wish list. I’m loving this one from Williams Sonoma!
Enamelware Measuring cups – Measuring cups are an absolute must but why not use pretty ones? These enamelware measuring cups are practical as well as pretty!
