Bakers make all of our lives more delicious with their wonderful creations. They bring us joy in every single bite and have the ability to brighten our day with a cupcake or cookie. This is why finding great gifts for bakers is so important!
We need to find ways to express to them just how much we appreciate them, whether they’re our moms, dads, grandparents or best friends.
To help make the process of buying gifts for bakers a little bit easier for you, we have put together a list. Below, you’ll find the best possible gifts to get for those who love to whip up a glorious cake in their spare time.
Afternoon Tea at Aqua Shard
More than anyone, bakers can appreciate a good afternoon tea, so why not treat them to this one at the Aqua Shard? Located on the 31st floor of the Shard with glass from floor to ceiling, this tea for two is set amongst some of the city’s most breath-taking views.
Treat them to a modern twist on traditional English tea, where they can delight in an excellent selection of sweet and savoury treats like porcini ganache in a chocolate cup. This package is perfect for a special occasion, or simply just because. Either way, as one of our gift ideas for bakers, this experience is something that they will not likely soon forget.

Every month, six new cookies are created, many of which are seasonal. This is the perfect gift to help keep the baker in your life inspired.
A Brownie Subscription Box
Just like the cookie subscription box, this brownie subscription box makes for one of our great gift ideas for bakers as it allows them to treat themselves without needing to put in any of the work. In addition to this, they might just be inspired by this bakery’s creations, as they send a monthly assortment of brownies. With this box, you can choose how often you want them to deliver. The brownies can last for up to two weeks if placed in an airtight container.

Following this, they will dine at Le Coucou, Chef Rose’s restaurant, where they will be treated as exclusive guests. Which baker doesn’t like to learn from the best and then indulge themselves in good food?
A Latte Art Class
Coffee is just as good for the soul as cake is, which is why this latte art class is on our list of the best gifts for bakers. This will be great for the baker in your life, as it will give them a chance to learn how to take the coffees that they serve with their delicious creations up a notch. Included in this experience is a three-hour workshop at the Artisan Coffee School.

Dessert And Baking Salts
There is an unexpected joy in the combination between sweet and salty, and most bakers love to experiment with achieving the delicate balance between the two. One of our recommended gifts for anyone who loves to bake is this box of dessert and baking salts that features excellent flavours like vanilla lavender, espresso and lemon ginger, all of which will go a long way in helping to kick your baker’s creations up a notch.
A Gourmet Getaway
Why not treat them to a gourmet getaway to Greece? On this trip, they will be able to experience some of Athens’ finest gastronomy sites.

In addition to these gastronomical delights, they will also be granted access to the Acropolis Museum and stay in five-star accommodation in central Athens.
A Pizza And Pastry Roller
This pizza and pastry roller is perfect for all bakers. It’s not just a typical rolling pin, tt looks good so can easily be displayed on their countertop, but at the same time, is small enough to be quickly tucked away. While it’s a simple little gadget, it goes a long way in helping to achieve perfect sizes and textures for everything from cookie dough to pizza bases before they’re put in the oven. Furthermore, this roller is crafted from high-quality materials, making it durable. It’s the kind of kitchen accessory that will last for years and years.
A Superyacht Sailing Experience
For most, a superyacht sailing experience is so far beyond their wildest dreams, but with the Leopard 3 Super Maxi Yacht, you can turn dreams into a reality.

On board, they will be able to feast on canapes, an afternoon tea, a buffet-style lunch and plenty of champagne! This is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday or special occasion.
A Day Of Pampering
Rolling pastries, mixing cake batter and finding the perfect consistency for cream cheese frosting is tiring work. This is exactly why a day of pampering at London’s Bulgari Spa makes for one of our wonderful gifts for bakers.
This luxurious experience for two will begin with a consultation with a treatment therapist, who will guide them through the 60-minute treatments on offer and help them decide which one is best. In addition to a gloriously relaxing treatment, they will also have a full day of access to the spa’s incredible 25-metre pool, as well as the steam room, the sauna, the ice fountain and the relaxation areas.

They will also be shown how chocolate is made through an onsite process, which includes a demonstration in the art of tempering.

While baking gifts are certainly always welcome, they might quite like to do something a little bit different, like this half-day cooking course at The Raymond Blanc Cookery School.
Head Tutor Mark Peregrine and his team will teach through informative demonstrations, and they will be able to choose from a variety of courses, such as ‘Sweet & Savoury Souffles’ and ‘The Magic of Macaron’.

Macaron Flavour Development in Paris
Macarons are one of the most delicate creations a baker can make. Pierre Hermé, also known as the “Picasso of pastry”, has developed a reputation as being the best in the business.

During these consultations, they will be able to learn everything there is to know about building flavour combinations for their own unique macaron, after which they will retain lifelong copyright for their flavour.

Sometimes the best gifts are getaways and being able to whisk them away is one of our favourite gift ideas for bakers. Consider taking them for a two-night stay in a treehouse studio in Chewton Glen. Here, they will get to relax, unwind and enjoy all of the amenities of the studio suites, which just so happen to be suspended 35 feet above the ground. A breakfast hamper will be delivered to the room on each morning of the stay. This luxurious property, located in Hampshire, also offers an outdoor hot tub and a freestanding bathtub.
