Stocking Stuffer Ideas for the Baker
Any baker would love all of these edible gifts as the perfect accent to so many of the recipes they'll be creating in the kitchen! They're all nicely sized for fun baking themed stocking stuffers.
The quintessential peppermint flavor that is so classic in holiday baking! It is carefully made by slowly infusing botanical extractives into an alcohol base (flavor carrier required by the FDA) to give you the best flavor.
Handcrafted Gourmet Salt Flakes from Iceland are great for so many different baking recipes! They add just a touch of salt when sprinkled on top of baked goods, like chocolate chip cookies, or on top of homemade caramels. One of our family's favorite homemade caramel recipes to make is this recipe for Gingerbread Caramels, complete with flaky sea salt sprinkled on top! You can't go wrong with this baking stocking stuffer idea since it has so many uses!
Chai Spice Blend is perfect for adding the flavors of Chai to a baked recipe without having to measure out each individual spice, some of which can be pretty pricey on their own. I use this Chai Spice Blend all the time in recipes. It would be great substituted for the spices in this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal.
Cacao Nibs are versatile, nutrient-dense bites created from Criollo variety cacao beans. Criollo variety cacao has a more premium, complex flavor, and they're great for individuals with dietary restrictions because they're organic, gluten-free, keto friendly, and vegan. Use them in recipes like these Dark Chocolate Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel. These Raw Cacao Nibs would also be great added to these Pumpkin Chai Chocolate Chip Granola Bars in place of mini chocolate chips.
Raw Cacao Powder is the healthy alternative to conventional, highly-processed Dutch cocoa. It is finely ground from the cold-pressed cacao beans and left in its most natural state with no sweeteners. It substitutes perfectly in any recipe that calls for traditional cocoa powder, like this recipe for Easy Homemade Fudgy Brownies, or a batch of Mocha Roasted Almonds!
Baking Tools and Gadgets
What baker wouldn't want the perfect tool or gadget to complete the task? I use all of these, and so many on a very regular basis in my kitchen! Plenty of this baking gift ideas will fit just perfectly in the stocking for the person you're gifting.
This Baker's Dusting Wand is perfect for any recipe that needs a fine dusting of powered sugar applied on top for a garnish or when dusting the tops of homemade rustic bread loaves with flour. One of our favorite recipes that you could use this tool with is this Rustic Rosemary Garlic Bread. Slip this Baker's Dusting Wand in the stocking of someone who loves to bake!
Scrapers are great for for cutting dough, sectioning crusts, scraping baking sheets, and more. I also like to use my to help scrape any stuck on doughs or batters off of my kitchen counters when they get dried on. I like this one because the stainless steel blade includes quarter-inch markings for easy measuring. Use it when cutting the cinnamon rolls for this Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls Recipe or for dividing the dough when making Sweet Potato Dinner Rolls.
Pie weights are great any time you are baking empty pie shells, known as blind baking. Adding pie weights helps the crusts bake without them shrinking, bubbling or buckling. Great for all kids of pie recipes that call for blind baking!
This beater is so great for when you're making cookie dough. Instead of having to constantly stop and scrape the sides of the mixing bowl down with a spatula, this beater has a built in spatula that scrapes the sides for you as it mixes. Try it next time you bake Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies!
My all time favorite lemon squeezer! It works for lemons, but it also works for other citrus, too. For larger items like oranges, you just need to cut the oranges into quarters rather than halves. So helpful when you need to juice citrus for curd recipes like this Orange Curd or Raspberry Curd. I love that it is stainless steel so the handles don't break and it will hold up for years!
It is nice to have a dedicated cake tester rather than always needing to search for a toothpick or other thin object when trying to figure out if the cake is done all the way in the center. Try it out on this Easy Chocolate Gingerbread Cake and you won't be in doubt at all as to the cake's doneness.
A good instant read thermometer is essential for any homemade candy making. I use it all the time when making Chocolate Covered Vanilla Fleur de Sel Caramels to get quick and accurate readings - accidentally going even just a couple degrees too hot when making caramels can take you from soft and chewy to hard candies. The faster you can take the temp, the better!
How smart is this tool? Use side notches to pull oven rack or edge of pans towards you. Use the notch on the end to push oven rack or pan back into oven. Stay cool handle keeps hands protected from heat during use. I love that it is small and easy to store in a drawer! It's also small enough to be a great addition to your stocking stuffers.
For those who like to get fancy with their cupcake and cake decorating, this set is perfect! It includes 13 Icing Nozzles in the shape of unique flowers, 11 Pastry Bags for Frosting, and Tri-Color Coupler (perfect for making Multi-Swirled Frosting). It comes packaged in a nice gift box.
Have you ever wondered how they fill cupcakes with filling (like coconut lemon curd or extra frosting)? You use this little tool to cut out a small section from the center of the cupcake and then place your filling in the hole it creates. Comes as a 3 piece set with two different sizes. This fun, small gadget is a great baking stocking stuffer idea.
This 18" inch Rolling Pin is the perfect size and length for rollin out dough. I liked the tapered design for easy grip. Want to make awesome all-butter pie crusts or perfectly rolled dough for Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies? Start with a quality rolling pin like this. This beautiful wooden rolling pin would be another great gift idea for the baker in your life. And you can slip it right in their stocking.
Rather than using the fork tines to make the classic cross hatch pattern on top of Almond Butter Cookies, you can make them extra fancy with these cookie stamps. Really, anything that will slightly flatten the cookie dough and make an interesting pattern on top!
Baking Utensils and Measuring Sets
Measuring is essential in baking! These sets will help your baker get the most accurate measurements, and with quality tools that will hold up for years to come. After measuring, you'll need some great utensils to go with so they can complete the recipe. Stash some of these baking themed stocking stuffers for your gift giving this Christmas!
I have had these measuring cup and spoon sets for YEARS and they hold up so well. I love that they have a nice, heavy, substantial weight to them and they look so nice (even after thousands of cycles in the dishwasher). Whip up a batch of these Cranberry Walnut Bars and you'll have every measurement amount you need with this set! These would make a great stocking stuffer idea for someone who loves baking.
Some recipes are best measured with a digital kitchen scale. I've had this one for several years and it continues to work great. Every time I make the NY Times Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe I use this scale because the flours are weighed in ounces rather than cups for better accuracy.
Every baker needs a great set of baking utensils. I love sets like these that have wooden handles and the tool portion is made out of silicone. They'd make a great stocking stuffer for anyone who likes to bake!
