So, if you’re shopping for a birthday present, holiday gift, the perfect hostess gift, or a “just because” gift for the bakers in your life, you’re in luck.

Baking is my love language. (You know this about me by now.) A plate of fresh baked cookies, a perfect cake for my clients and a container of my famous cheese straws as a hostess gift, baking how I share my love with my friends, family and with you. But, as much as we bakers love to give gifts (usually the baked kind, of course) we also love to get gifts too!

On this latest Minette Loves, I’m sharing my favorite gifts and unique gift ideas for my fellow bakers out there. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for the baker in your life, you’ll want to stick with me today.

If you’re new around here, Minette (that’s me!) Loves is a series of baking blog posts where I round up my favorite tools and baking essentials for you so that you don’t have to source the entire Internet for baking items. So far, I’ve shared my favorite holiday cookie cutters and sprinkles, and where to find holiday cookie tins and trays that are perfect for your Christmas cookie swap.

From custom tea towels, to cake stands, to funny baking t-shirts, I did the research for you to find lots of cute and thoughtful gifts for those who love to bake. If you’re giftee (aka the person you’re giving the gift to) loves to bake cookies, cakes, biscuits and all the sweet treats, then you’re sure to find the most thoughtful gift for them in this post. All of these baking gifts are sourced from Etsy, which means that they are handmade and purchasing supports small businesses and artisans.

Shop Linen Aprons

I love to wear a linen apron for baking when I’m in the kitchen. They are easy, comfortable and not too hot, which is especially important there in the South when the kitchen can get hot, hot, hot. You don’t even want to know what it’s like running around the kitchen baking cakes for multiple weddings on a summer weekend!

Here are a few linen baking aprons that would be a perfect gift for the baker in your life. Any self respecting baker can never have enough aprons!

Shop Cake Stands

If I have a soft spot for anything sweet (You know this!), but I also love a beautiful cake stands and linen aprons. I simply can’t stop buying cake stands, between the wedding cake business and my love of cakes stands, there is always a new cake stand in my life.

If you’re looking for the way to my heart, it starts with perfectly baked cake and ends with a beautiful cake stand. I love a gorgeous cake stand and I have the cabinets full of stands of all shapes and sizes to prove it!

You’ll find as you get more and more into baking that most bakers tend to hoard something. If it’s a cake stand (like me!) or cookie cutters, apron, wooden spoons – we all have some baking tool that we can’t get enough of.

I’ve been professionally baking for over 20 years with my wedding cakes and cookies, so you can imagine my hoards of baking tools and aprons. But, it’s the cake stands that I truly hoard. I have the cake stands to prove my years in the baking business!

I hope you love this collection of unique and handmade cake stands to gift the baker in your life. I truly had a hard time limiting it for you – I love them all!

Shop Hostess Gifts

Speaking of gifts, I want to share this easy hostess gift idea with you. One of my favorite hostess gifts to give is to bake cookies and gift the host not only the baked goods inside, but also the tin or container that I’m giving them in as well as the written recipe down on a cute recipe card. (Check out my collection of holiday cookie tins and contain.)

I hope you’ll find something sweet and perfect to take with you for your next host. I always hate showing up empty handed and beyond just the standard bottle of wine, I like to bake something as a hostess gift. Try one of my classic cookie recipes or this easy cream cheese pound cake recipe for your hostess gift if you need a little inspiration.

I made a collection of perfect hostess gifts for you that any baker would love…
