The baker in your life will enjoy your support of their craft as much as their creations.

So we've picked a few ideas to help you out on treating them this Christmas.

And if you've left things to the last minute we hope some of these will help you out of a tight spot.

Last order dates are fast approaching, but there is still time. Just be sure to check before you buy.

Back the bake

Chip in on a priceless experience and buy a baking course with Virgin Experience Days.

Treat someone to French country baking, or cooking with chocolate at the Cake Boy Emporium in London – home to celebrity baker, Eric Lanlard.

Or perhaps bread making at The River Cottage in Devon is more their cup of tea?

Experience days are valid for nine months from purchase, so plenty of time for them to top up their knowledge.

Get personal

A truly unique gift is a personalised one. and bakers need their own trusty equipment.

Lots of websites offer customisable baking gifts for cute and quirky presents.

Snap up a personalised head chef apron or a paint-your-own cake stand from notonthehighstreet.

Or perhaps a rolling pin decorated with a name from Prezzybox.

In the good books

A book is always a great gift for a budding home baker.

The latest offering from Bake Off has over 100 recipes for sweet and savoury bakes, biscuits, desserts.

And that’s just the tip of the icing-berg. Grab it from Amazon for less than £10.

Got a bread baking buff in the family? Treat them to Flour Water Salt Yeast by Ken Forkish. Also available on Amazon, and a good option if the recipient wants to perfect breads and pizzas.

Give a gadget


There are lots of gizmos, gadgets and accessories which can help hone your baking skills.

Take a look at Hobbycraft’s range of bakeware for charming cake boards and stands, cookie cutters, cake toppers and storage.

Tech-loving bakers will love a two-in-one digital spoon scale that can accurately measure solids and liquids in different units. Get your hands on one from Amazon.

Take the faff out of dividing egg whites and yolks with a specialised egg separator. We like this one from John Lewis, it hangs on the side of your mixing bowl and is £4.

It’ll make meringue baking a dream.
