Shopping for a home baker? Find the perfect gift on this list of 10 Gift Ideas For Home Bakers on

I love baking. And I’m very convinced that I should be on The Great British Baking Show this season. Pete, however, joked that I should be on Nailed it instead.


It’s hard to be a home baker. You have to make due with what you have at home. You don’t have access to a ton of tools. But that’s why shopping for a home baker is so easy. There are so many tools and accessories to buy.

That can also be overwhelming.

So to help, we put together a list of the Top Ten Gift Ideas For Home Bakers.

Top Ten Gift Ideas For Home Bakers

As with all our lists, these items are in no particular order. But, in this case, it is a sponsored post and the sponsored product gets top billing.

1. Zulay Kitchen Classic Cookie Press

My mom had a cookie press when we were growing up, and it’s so perfect for the holidays. You can make one cookie dough and turn it into a ton of different shapes. The Zulay Kitchen Classic Cookie Press has a stainless steel and anodized aluminum design and can make 35 to 40 small cookies and 20 to 25 large cookies in a single batch. There are 20 decorative stencil discs, which you can use to make cookies — or even churros and biscuits. That’s amazing.

Purchase here.

2. Bundt Pan

I had a Bundt Pan years ago, but we donated it when we moved because we didn’t use it very often. And now, every once in a while, I want to make a bundt cake or monkey bread and I can’t because, well, no pan. So definitely pick one up for your home baker. It’ll totally be appreciated.

Purchase here.

3. Wilton Expand and Fold Cooling Rack

Usually, when I put these lists together, I’m not too specific about brands. A pan is a pan is a pan. But in this case, I’m very specific about the Wilton Expand and Fold Cooling Rack. This is the one we have, use all the time, and would never trade with another. It collapses, so it’s easy to store, and it expands for when you make large batches of treats.

Purchase here.

4. Doughnut Pan

I don’t love doughnuts. Like, I’ll run out because I’m in the mood for fried chicken, but I never run out for a doughnut. But a homemade doughnut where I can make it from my own cake batter? Yes. I have a Doughnut Pan for just that. So your home baker definitely needs one (or two — to make a dozen).

Purchase here.

5. Nonstick Bakeware Set

I’m not brand specific on my pans, for the most part. If you have a good oven, brand of pan doesn’t matter. What matters, though, is you want to have the right pans. Home bakers usually have a mix of pans that they’ve purchased when they needed one, so definitely grab this Nonstick Bakeware Set. It comes with two 8-inch round cake pans, a medium loaf pan, a 9×13-inch cake pan, a 12-cup muffin pan, and a 10×15-inch baking sheet.

Purchase here.

6. Stand Mixer

My home baking game has been elevated ever since we were given a Stand Mixer for Christmas a few years ago. I can make cookies (like Italian Rainbow Cookies) that have an impossible to mix by hand dough and huge batches of meringues, that I couldn’t make otherwise. It also makes recipes where I previously used my hand mixer, like banana bread, so much easier. Your home cook will love this.

Purchase here.

7. Cake Decorating Tip Set

If you want a gift for your favorite home baker-slash-blogger (cough, that’s me!), this Cake Decorating Tip Set is perfect. It comes with 20 tips, 5 bags, 2 couplers (which are key if your home baker wants to actually ice, not make a mess), and more. Even better, though, it comes in a really nice box to keep everything organized — unlike my current method of throwing icing tips in a plastic bag in the bottom of the pantry.

Purchase here.

8. Cake Shapers

Home bakers spend a lot of time baking square, round, and rectangle cakes, then cutting them into different shapes to make shaped cakes. It’s a lot of work, but home bakers can’t store dozens of cake molds like a cake shop can. Enter these Cake Shapers. You can use them to shape cakes into shapes like hearts, snowmen, and more so easily. This is one of the best gifts for the baker who has everything because I’m sure they don’t have this.

Purchase here.

9. Adjustable Layer Cake Slicer

Have you ever tried to make a layer cake at home? You have a couple options. Either, you bake the layers separately and stack. Or you bake a large cake and cut it in half, hoping you’re cutting straight. Neither is ideal and both can produce lopsided cakes. That’s why the Adjustable Layer Cake Slicer is amazing. You wrap it around your cake and it guides you so you are cutting straight across your cake. Makes making layer cakes so much easier.

Purchase here.

10. Pie Pan

I’ve bought pie pans as gifts before, but I don’t actually own a Pie Pan because I actually don’t really like pie. And then this Easter, I made Easter Pie for Pete in a round cake pan. It worked fine and tasted great, but it didn’t have the embellishments it would have if I had a pie pan. So grab one for your home baker. They’ll appreciate it.

I'm not a baker, so I have no idea of what to give a baker as a present. Although I love desserts, I've never had the opportunity to actually bake a lot of stuff. These are great ideas! Now I know what to get.
