Taste of Home
Taste of Home Bakeware
You can now bake your favorite Taste of Home recipes in our new line of bakeware ($70 for this 5-piece set). Each piece in the set has a beautiful embossed design that is pretty and functional. It increases air-flow to the food for consistent baking and it captures the vintage spirit you found in your grandmother’s bakeware.
Share the flavors of the holiday season with this set of premium extracts from Nielsen-Massey ($30). This collection has vanilla, almond and peppermint extracts and is perfect for so many holiday recipes.
Nordic Ware Bundt Pan
Who doesn’t love a good Bundt cake? They’re easy to whip up and look elegant even with the simplest of decorations. Bakers can definitely appreciate the beauty and the utility of a new Bundt pan. We love this Brilliance Bundt from Nordic Ware ($36).
Baking Spice Collection
Give your favorite baker all the warming spices of the season with this gift box from The Spice House ($30). Inside they’ll find nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and crystalized ginger nibs. These flavors already have us thinking of amazing pumpkin pies.
Giant Mixing Bowl
Frequent bakers often bemoan the lack of truly large mixing bowls for double batches of cookies and oversized loaves of bread. That’s why this giant—we mean it at 10.5 quarts—mixing bowl ($100) is a perfect gift for any baker.
Tired of finishing off bakes with the same old jimmies and sprinkles? Try Fancy Sprinkles ($8). These over-the-top sprinkle blends are shiny, sparkly and oh so pretty. Just a dash of these will make any cutout cookie look top-notch.
Kitchen Conversions Chart
While we all might know our times tables backward and forwards, when it comes to cutting down recipes, it’s easy to get bungled up. Skip the confusion with a cute conversion chart. Hang this one ($10) in your kitchen. It’ll look great alongside your vintage Pyrex.
Butter Oven Mitt
Today’s cookie presses work so much more easily than those of yore. (We tested them!) Upgrade your favorite baker’s press with this one from OXO Good Grips ($25). It’s perfect for making all these great spritz recipes.
Sure, you can use a toothpick to make sure cakes are done, but no serious baker wants to rummage around in a drawer to find one. Instead, gift your baking friends a cake tester like this one ($5) that they can keep at the ready. It’s a cute, affordable gift that they’ll surely appreciate.
Countertop Bread Proofer
Baking bread is all about patience with all the proofing. Sometimes getting that right lift is hard to do, especially when it’s cold outside. You can shorten proofing times and get great rises on bread during the colder months with a countertop proofer ($170). This is a great gift for avid bread bakers who might not treat themselves to such a handy gadget.
Keeping pastry cool while working is crucial for all those flaky layers. A marble pastry board can be chilled in the fridge and will still cold while you prep your favorite puffed recipes. This extra-large marble pastry board ($70) is a great gift for bakers who love pie and pastry.
