Simply Recipes 2018 Gift Guide: The Baker

Let Simply Recipes help you make gift-giving a breeze this year with our Gift Guide for the Baker in your life! Featuring ten stellar gifts chosen by our editorial team, crossing people off your list has never been easier.

From muffins and scones to gooey brownies and towering layer cakes, who doesn’t love a treat every now and then?

The good news is that recreating your favorite dessert at home is more than doable if you’re equipped with the right tools for the job. Let us help guide the way. Here are our top ten picks to treat the baking enthusiast in your life this holiday season!

Emile Henry 9

A classic ceramic pie dish is a must for every home baker, and we love the Emile Henry line because it distributes heat perfectly, is super durable, and ... have we mentioned those pretty fluted edges?

Escali Digital Kitchen Scale

Every baker should have a reliable kitchen scale and sometimes, the fewer bells and whistles, the better. That's why we love the Polder scale; it's a little workhorse, doesn't take up a ton of space, and is super easy to clean.

5-Quart Stand Mixer

Pillowy meringue? Check. Perfect loaves of bread? Check. The Artisan Stand Mixer will quickly become a power player in your favorite baker's life. The flat beater, dough hook, and wire whip are included, so any baking task is easily within reach.

Baker's Decorating Set

Looking to upgrade your cake decorating game? Craving a filled cupcake? Then this indispensable basic decorating kit is just for you! The easy-to-clean set includes a Silicone Decorating Bottle Kit, Cupcake Icing Knife, and Cupcake Corer.

Fletchers' Mill French Rolling Pin

Why a french rolling pin? They help distribute weight more evenly. Why this beauty? It's crafted from sugar wood maple in the USA and is sure to become a family heirloom for generations to come.

Biscuit Cutter Set

Create perfectly round biscuits and cookies with this professional set of four stainless steel cutters (and a dough blender to help work that butter into your flour!). We can just smell the warm biscuits now.

Citrus Oil Set

A little bit goes a long way with these beautiful all-natural extracts. We like to use them in conjunction with citrus zest and juice to really amplify the flavor. Just in time for baking with winter citrus fruits!

Acacia Wood Cake Stand

A beautiful cake stand isn't easy to find, and this one is downright handsome. Crafted from small leaf acacia wood, it's just as comfortable displaying cheese and fruits as it is your next birthday cake.

Thermoworks ThermoPop Digital Thermometer

Take the guesswork out of baking and use a digital thermometer to gauge when your loaf of bread is done. We love the Thermopop because it’s accurate, fast, durable, and comes in lots of playful colors.

Nested Mixing Bowl Set

Give the gift of easy, fuss-free mixing this year with three essential mixing bowls. We love this nested set thanks to its rubber handles (easy to grip!) and non-stick bottom. Plus they're neutral enough that they'll look great in any kitchen.
