45 Of The Best Gifts For Bread BakersVIA MERCHANT

Baking bread is more than a hobby. It’s an art, a science, a stress reliever and, most importantly, a delicious way to treat yourself to something nice.

We’ve found gifts for bread bakers that consider everything. People who are seasoned bread bakers likely have all the essentials, such as stand mixers and rolling pins. For those people, we have picks that help them show off their perfected homemade loaves in the best possible light, as well as a few gifts to assist them in further expanding their horizons.

Maybe the person you’re shopping for has next to no experience in the kitchen but has always expressed a desire to start. For those folks, we found gifts that get them going on the right foot, such as beginner kits and cookbooks to help them develop and hone their technique.

We also have gifts that let them celebrate their love of carbs outside the kitchen. Think sweatshirts, slippers and even lamps. From kitchen tools to appliances, home goods to baked goods, here are the best gifts for bread bakers of all ages and skill levels. You just might want to pick up a few of these for yourself too. After all, who doesn’t love bread?

But the Raisenne dough riser is the perfect sidekick. Plug in this device, and it heats up to just the right temperature for proofing. When you’re done, the little gadget is small enough to fit in a drawer.
