I’m going to say it. I know that am not the first. CHRISTMAS. Yes, Christmas! There are two types of people when it comes to Christmas. The first will just have been flooded with a fuzzy excitement, and the second? Well, they will have already stopped reading and clicked off the page!
Have you started you Christmas shopping? Are you looking for gift ideas and inspiration?
I have been buying gifts for Christmas over that last few months to help spread the cost and, more recently, I have been doing a lot of online browsing for gift ideas for friends and family. I thought I would compile a little list of gift ideas for people who love baking and cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
Just like some people belive that tea tastes better out of a china cup or mug, I firmly believe that cake tastes better when eaten with a cute little cake fork. These cake forks are so delicate and pretty and I just love the presentation box that they come in. There’s nothing quite like indulging in cake with a fancy fork!
Slicing a beautiful cake can be hard when you have put so much love and time into baking it, but it can definitely made easier by whipping out a decorative cake slice. This cake slice is part of the Mary Berry collection; if it is good enough for the queen of baking – it is good enough for me! I love the charming goose design.
Hands up if you store you cakes in recycled Tupperware or chocolate tubs? *Raises hand. I am absolutely all for recycling, but they can be a pain to store, and let’s face it, they aren’t the most attractive of things to have sitting on your worktops! Cake tins can become a feature in your kitchen, there are so many styles, designs and shapes, there will be a tin to suit any kitchen. I love the slogans on this tin “If in doubt, Cake” and “Cake (because I can)”. It would make me smile every time I saw it!
Multifunctional GLASS Cake Stand and Dome | Cake Dome, Punch Bowl, Salad Bowl, Serving Stand, Food Dome
So, you have something to store your cake in, something to slice your cake with and something to eat your cake with…you just need to something to present your cake on!
This glass cake stand is just stunning, and it has 5* reviews. It is elegant, classical and would make perfect centrepiece at a party. What’s more, you can flip the base and lid upside down and turn into a salad or punch bowl. I love multifunctional items – anything that saves space in my cupboards is a winner!
Russian piping tips have become really popular. They allow you to pipe beautiful floral decorations quickly and easily. These are on my cake decorating tools wish list and would make a lovely gift for someone who would like to add to their kit.
I love personalised gifts, they are unique and thoughtful. I love how this humble wooden spoon can be turned into a star attraction by adding a personal message or name. I don’t think I could bear to use it though, it would be treasured and out for display only!
Ok, this is a biggie! It is many a bakers dream to own a KitchenAid which is why I am including it on my list. If you really want to pull out all the stops this Christmas, this would be the way to do it! It is probably one of only a few exceptions to the rule of not buying household appliances as gifts! KitchenAid mixers come in a rainbow of colours from classic white to bold red, with host of pastel colours in between.
So many evenings, I have been tempted to whisk up a mug cake for one for a quick pick me up. This recipe book is brilliant and would be a gift that keep on giving!
There are 101 biscuit cutters crammed into this handy tub. It contains letters, numbers and all sorts of shapes for a whole host of themes. It would make a great gift for all bakers, including children. There is a lot of fun to be had in this tub!
Not only is this box incredibly pretty, it is practical too. It provides a neat and safe place to save all your favourite recipes. Gone will be the days of loose torn out pages of magazines or printouts from the internet, they can be sorted and stored ready for the next time you want to impress in the kitchen.
I hope this list gives you some helpful ideas of what you can get your baker friends and family for Christmas – what’s at the top of your Christmas wish list?
