Every baker does it for a different reason. For me, it began as stress relief and a creative outlet that had nothing to do with my profession. It was a way for me to create something that could bring joy (and full tummies) to my loved ones, and through their enjoyment, bring happiness to me. Over the years, my baking cabinet has exploded, my bookshelves are groaning under the weight of the cookbooks, and I am forever looking for cute things to accessorize my bakes. But when you start Googling for “Gifts for Bakers” they tend to fall a bit on the kitschy side. And unless it’s a nice brie, I hate cheesy things. So here’s my take on gifts for bakers who would love to find useful, fun, and maybe a bit cheeky gifts this holiday season.
