We'll be traveling for the holidays (by car) and I'd like to bring some stocking stuffers for the relatives. I think everyone bakes and could use a new baking/decorating toy in their stocking.
Ideas? So far I'm thinking small raised spatulas, maybe cake combs. Any other ideas.
small cutters, I like the tins with different size cutters, animals, letters, numbers...I have found some good prices at TXMaxx and Homegoods
Last year my DH filled my stocking with fun little things and my favorite is the bowl scraper from Wilton that is specially made for stand mixers. He also put a frosting/ cutting knife a little calandar (to keep track of cake orders) and the imprint roller all from Wilton.
icing tips, maybe some lorann flavors, cute cupcake wrappers. Another cute idea would be to layer all the dry ingredients to make sugar cookies in a mason jar, put a ribbon around the neck and attach instructions and a pretty cookie cutter
at michaels right now there are TONS of cute christmas baking items for great prices. cute spatulas, cookie lifters, cookie cutters, mini loaf pans, icings, cupcake wrappers, etc. that's definitely what i would get!
One idea, you can buy an oven mitt and stuff it with the things, instead of a "Stocking". For me i would love cookie cutters, assorted sprinkles or colored sugars, maybe a gourmet flavoring that is unusual, spatulas, silpat...
Yay! I am so glad OP you did this. My family and I love to bake and these are great ideas. I also thought of giving everyone small note pads to take decorating notes. We have also started a family Baking book, with recipes, notes, tips, and pictures. I cannot wait until Christmas.
If you're buying one item each for a group of bakers, it would be fun to give them all the same thing...maybe a small bottle of creme bouquet. Then later on everyone could compare what they'd used it in and how they liked it.
