    The Best Gifts for Bakers

    If you’ve been reading for long, you know my love for minimalism. I’m certainly not one for a lot of clutter or stuff laying around my house. If it doesn’t have a purpose or bring me joy, it’s generally not going to stick around for long. 

    However, when it comes to baking, it’s difficult for me to say no. I can rarely stop myself from clicking “add to cart” when a pretty new pan or a sweet little gadget looks like it will improve my life and my kitchen.

    While I don’t believe that you need fun new gadgets in order to be an amazing baker, I think it can certainly make baking even more fun. Plus, it’s kind of fun just to think about creative baking gift ideas, isn’t it? 

    This year, I’m creating a variety of gift guides to suit every buyer and recipient. I’ve already written a round up of 25 homemade gifts, and an incredible list of kitchen gifts. My Christmas gift guide has a category for women, men, kids and even teens!
