BAKE OR BREAK’S

Not that long ago, I was one of those annoying people who had their holiday shopping done by November. Those days are far behind me. While you won’t see me among the throngs fighting crowds on Christmas Eve, I could very well be found scouring the internet for gifts and paying extra for overnight shipping.

Whether your shopping habits are methodical or frenzied, I think you’ll find this list useful for the bakers in your life or maybe even for yourself.

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you have likely caught on to my love of the new West Elm Market in my neighborhood. On a recent visit, I became enamored with this Labeled Kitchen Mixing Bowl Set. They actually have a whole little family of these items, including Storage Containers, Mortar + Pestle (also pictured below), and a Utility Jar.

West Elm Market also has a great selection of aprons. I’m not much of an apron-wearer, but this is where I’d get one if I were.

I have a weakness for cake stands. I have learned to keep it in check, but I still love to drool over them. This tiny Petit Treat Cupcake Stand is one of my favorites from Rosanna, Inc. I love the pink, but it’s also available in green, yellow, and white.

Fishs Eddy is probably my favorite store in all of NYC. They have all kinds of cake stands, but this Lotta Cake Stand is such a fun alternative to the standard fare.

For a stocking stuffer, how about this OXO Good Grips Good Cookie Spatula? Not only is it a handy baking tool, but 50% of the profits support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. That is an organization dedicated to raising funds to help pediatric cancer research. It’s a double win!
