Simply Recipes 2019 Gift Guide: The Baker

Shopping for the baker in your life? Let the Simply Team help! With ten standout gifts that'll help your favorite baker churn out perfect cakes and cookies, crossing people off your list has never been easier.

Layer cake for your kiddo’s birthday? Brownies for your sweetie after a hard day? Chocolate chip cookies … just because.

These are the things the bakers in our lives think about. Let’s treat them right, shall we?!

If you’ve got a baking enthusiast in your life, make sure they’ve got all the tools and inspiration they need this year with our top ten picks for gadgets, ingredients and bakeware!

Bread Proofing Basket Set

Editor in Chief Emma loves this set for the die-hard bread baking enthusiast in your life. It's "everything an aspiring bread baker could want," she assures. And the best part? Maybe you'll get a loaf of warm bread in return!

Scoring Knife

Beautifully-scored loaves are a guarantee with this handmade wood and stainless steel tool. Treat it well, and it's a gift that can feasibly be passed down and enjoyed by future bakers!

Bavarian cream, jelly-filled or glazed. Do we have to decide?! Luckily we don't: with these charming prints, your donut-loving friends are sure to have a holiday to remember.

Any serious baker knows that all vanilla extracts aren't created equal. And this set is sure to delight, with a bottle of Mexican vanilla, Madagascar vanilla (Megan's favorite!) and Tahitian vanilla, all prized for different reasons and boxed for gift-giving this holiday.

Silicone Donut Pan

Making baked donuts at home is so simple, and yet the payoff is so great. There's no messy frying or fussy jam-filling: all you need is this easy-to-clean pan and an hour of time! Then, warm donuts are on the horizon.

Bakers Edge Brownie Pan

Anyone else out there a fan of brownie edges and corners? We know it's not just our team! If you know a real brownie lover, this is a great gift as it ensures that each and every bite has the most covetable part of the brownie.

Claudia, our Community Manager, alerted us to this funny digital print celebrating the fine art of putting off the important stuff on your to-do list by firing up the oven and getting a batch of cookies (or brownies ... or pie ... or, you get the picture) going.  It's important work but someone's gotta' do it!

Claudia's vote for MVP in the baker's toolbox this year are these beautiful metallic sprinkles, sure to liven up any baking project. Just think of the shimmering sugar cookies and lustrous cakes!

Dough Scrapers

From homemade bagels and bread to pie and rolls, a sturdy dough scraper is an indispensable kitchen tool. Emma loves giving them as a stocking stuffer, or wrapping it up with a ribbon atop gifts for her baking friends.
