Whether you're looking for the perfect present for a baker in your life—or for something to add to your own wish list—we think these pretty, practical gifts are sure to delight.

Jubilee Loaf Pan

Everyone knows that a Bundt pan can make even the humblest cake look like it's fit for a queen. Now, thanks to Nordic Ware's Jubilee Loaf pan, you can bring that same sculptural beauty to pound cakes, tea loaves, and banana breads. Talk about an elegant upgrade! 

Mason Cash Batter Bowl

The British maker Mason Cash has been crafting classic stoneware mixing bowls for more than a century. (Maybe you remember them from the kitchen at Downton Abbey?) Though all their pieces are keepers, we especially like this generously-sized batter bowl decorated with playful folk art and woodland scenes. With a sturdy handle and large pour spout, it's sure to become your go-to for making buttermilk pancakes and homemade waffles.

Carbon Steel Saucier

Devoted to your cast iron skillet? It's time you gave carbon steel a try. Think of it as cast iron's spry younger sib: lighter and more nimble, but just as rugged and reliable. This seasoned Lodge saucier is an heirloom in the making: generous enough to hold a family-sized batch of chicken and dumplings—and lovely enough to go straight from the stove to the dining table.

Made with OXO's signature eye for clever, user-friendly design, it holds up to 11 pounds, cleans up like a dream, and sports an adjustable, easy-to read digital interface that can toggle between ounces, grams, and pounds.

Dry Goods Dough Riser

Give your next batch of bread (and the planet) a little extra love by tucking it under this adorable cotton bowl cover while it rises. Inspired by vintage flour sacks, it's not just cute, it's also a machine washable, reusable alternative to plastic wrap.

Stainless Steel Round Biscuit Cutters

No baking arsenal would be complete without a collection of graduated biscuit cutters—and this pro-level set is a standout. Sturdy, stainless steel construction and generous handles mean they’ll stand up to a lifetime of use—and keep your hands comfy all the while.

Reclaimed Wood Rolling Pin

Sometimes simple really is better. These gorgeous, hand-turned French-style tapered rolling pins made from solid walnut and maple don't have any extraneous bells and whistles, but their minimalist design offers serious bakers unmatched control—and is easy to clean. With proper care, it's a tool that will last (and only improve) over a lifetime.

Silicone Perfect Pie Crust Mold

Ready, set, hashtag! Shaped in braided, rope, and herringbone patterns, these clever silicon molds are a genius shortcut to Instagram-worthy pies and tarts—without all the fuss, chilling, and cleanup.

Baking Tip

The amount of flour needed to knead bread dough varies based on the climate or season. Flour absorbs moisture from humid air, and loses moisture to dry air.

Baking Tip

To quickly bring eggs to room temperature, dip them in a bowl of warm water. Cut butter into small chunks and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes to soften.
