Let the gift giving season begin!
I’m not one to focus on materialist wants, but some of this stuff is just so neat that I couldn’t let them go by the wayside and not share them you. Here’s my top picks for the 2013 holiday season of shopping, ogling and pining for the bakers in your life (which could be you).
Advent calendars are a great way to countdown to Christmas and add a little fun into what usually is a very stressful time of year. These little houses measure 2″ x 3″ and can be reused yearly. Make this a new tradition in your home from Fancy Flours and have your family looking forward to special concoctions you bake or make up to personalize the holidays! Retails for $125.00.
These cookie molds from King Arthur Flour come in a pack of twenty four and allow you to display cookies in a whole new way. Imagine 3-D walnut cookies in a beautifully lined box to surprise some of your friends, or to gift the baking tins to your creative friend whose imagination you envy. Retails for $29.95.
This gift kit is THE perfect gift that contains everything a person could need to make fresh, delicious artesian bread at home. Average Joe‘s bread making for the home baker is hacked to break it down into the most simple techniques. Retails for $99.00.
These stencils from Global Sugar Art are a beautiful way to personalize holiday desserts. By placing them over cakes or cupcakes, these stencils allow you to sprinkle cinnamon, powdered sugar or cocoa to create unique decorations that require very little effort. You can even get really creative and use them to top off frothy cappuccino or hot chocolate! Retails for $15.00.
Kits are a great way to give back to a person during the holidays. Many will include everything you need to make something, and allow them to personalize their gift. It’s a complete package and that’s what Gallo Lea‘s Pizza Kits are all about. They have a selection of GMO free pizza kits in whole wheat, gluten free and low sodium. Complete with the sauce, instructions, high temperature paper and dough ingredients, you’re well on your way to delicious pizza. Retails for $42.00 (six pack).
Baking tartlets never has been easier thanks to Williams Sonoma. The set comes with the pan, but also a cutter and tamper helping to give you beautiful tarts each and every time. Think of all the possibilities! Retails for $29.95.
No baker should ever go anywhere without the Swiss Measuring Scoops from Gama Go. Why would you need a swiss army knife when you have a version that allows you to measure out teaspoons to tablespoons? A perfect stocking stuffer for the handy baker in your life. Retails for $10.00.
For a unique and one of a kind item, the Cake Box from Food52 has you covered. A eye catching wooden box complete with leather handle, it will allow you to transport your cake, or cupcakes in style. Retails for $75.00.
Munchstache cookie cutters from Give Simple could be all the craze this year at your holiday party as individuals wear cookies for fun pictures and edible art. If you have crumbs in your munchstache or spill some milk, that’s okay too. Retails for $10.00.
Think of your next holiday pie, it’s beautiful on it’s own. As it gets eaten, a beautiful poppy design shows up to allow your pie to show from the inside (of the pan) out. Thanks to Anthropologie, you can have your pie and eat it too. Retails for $36.00.
