Bread making is a wonderful way to de-stress while doing something productive that everyone can come together and enjoy. There is nothing quite like the smell of bread baking in the oven. Whether it is rye bread, a loaf of sweet bread or the classic sourdough bread loaf, this is a bakers hobby that can grow into whatever you want it to become.
Bread baking has become a very popular hobby, which makes gift buying for these bread makers very easy, as there are so many amazing bread bakers gifts and ideas out there.
When considering purchasing a gift for a bread baker, there are a few things to take into consideration. Is your bread baker a professional bread baker, or do they just really love making bread at home as a hobby? Out bread baking gift ideas include items to help in the bread-making process, items that are personalized, and items to go with bread, such as oils and real, Canadian maple syrup.
We took all of these points into consideration and broke our bread baker gift guide into three categories:
All of our bread maker gift ideas were selected so that anyone of any bread-making skill level would really enjoy any and all of our gift ideas though, so let our bread baker gift buying categories help you, but not limit you as all of these items are intended to put a smile on any bread baker's face.
So to reiterate, these gift ideas for bread makers is great for any bread baker: whether they are a bread maker who has just started making bread or are wanting to make bread more often.
Or perhaps you yourself are someone who has been baking bread for a little while, or you have been baking bread for years and years and you are looking for new bread-making tools and ideas.
We have put together the best gift ideas for bread bakers for every level of bread-making expertise! There is something for everyone.
The first few gift ideas can be for (but are certainly not limited to) a "bread baker novice" (see our definition at the bottom).
Let's start with a bread machine for the bread baker from Amazon. I purchased this exact Cuisinart Bread Machine in 2008. I can still remember the day actually. This little bread making machine is what started me on my bread baker journey!
Here is a funny story, my little bread maker actually got accidentally sold one year in a garage sale. I was devastated. An honest mistake by one "innocent" unmentioned husband. However, I loved this bread baker machine so much, I went and bought the exact same one again.
This bread maker is highly recommend as a great baking gift for anyone!
Some of the bread making recipes in this machine include:
This bread maker can also make pizza dough, sweetbreads, stuffing for Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey and regular bread loaves.
The best part is that you can start the bread machine early in the day and come back to HOMEMADE BREAD later without any previous bread making experience.
How beautiful are these handcrafted, rustic bread-serving trays? These would certainly make amazing gifts for any bread baker. Serve homemade, sliced bread in this tray or put a gorgeous homemade baguette in this bread serving tray whole.
What a beautiful way for the bread baker in your life to showcase their bread making skills!
Because each one is handmade, every bread serving tray is unique, meaning there are no two bread trays from this maker that are alike.
A little secret ingredient that many bread makers have, is that they use real maple syrup to replace sugars in their bread making ingredients. What many bread makers don't realize, is that if you are not buying 100% pure maple syrup, you are not getting the best results.
Here is the maple syrup we use for all of our recipes, and we love supporting this little business. They are called Maple Roch, and they are a small store located in British Columbia, Canada.
We love purchasing maple syrup from them for our breads as they are very environmentally conscious from their maple harvesting practices to their reusable, recyclable and compostable packaging.
Plus, their maple syrup is 100% pure and is single blend, meaning it is not mixed with any other syrups to produce higher volume for sales. It is the real deal, and they support the same maple harvesting families year after year.
We use their pure maple syrup to bloom our yeast instead of processed white sugar, and it works beautifully for this. We incorporate it into many of our loaves for flavor, and we love our fresh bread with melted butter and some real maple syrup on it.
Oh and if you are wondering, their maple granola (which is vegan and comes in compostable packaging) is the absolute best granola we have EVER had, and can be topped on a loaf of bread as well.
Adding these amazing bread dipping oils from Amazon by Grand'aroma as an gift for a bread baker is an excellent gift idea.
These oils come from the Mantova family recipe from Italy and are amazing. The oils have a delicate, mellow body and low acidity and add authentic Italian flavor to not only breads in bread dipping, but they can also be used in pasta dishes, with vegetables, on potatoes, with fish and more.
Only authentic Italian ingredients are used in making these bread oils and they are all-natural, non-GMO, trans fat-free cholesterol-free, sugar-free and gluten-free. They are packaged in glass bottles and are a beautiful and delicious gift for the bread maker in your life.
Now the following items are for THE OCCASIONAL LOAFER:
A kitchen scale is a very necessary tool for bread makers at all experience levels, and makes a really nice looking bread makers gift that can be kept on the counter. This gift idea is also great for anyone who loves to cook in general.
Many times, when your bread loaf doesn't come out as you had hoped, it is because the ingredient measurements were slightly off which affects the way the bread rises, bakes and browns.
Measuring by weight on a scale will give you accurate numbers and even more accurate, predictable results.
This kitchen scale by Ozeri from Amazon is both sleek in design and is easy to use. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors to choose from.
You can get this bread makers scale in:
Here is a real treat for any bread maker. If you are looking for some artistry in your bread makers gift, you will definitely want to check out this handmade UFO-style bread lame.
The UFO-style bread lame features engravings designed by Anna Gabur, whose intricate bread scoring is admired around the world.
Handmade from solid American black walnut in the USA, this UFO-style bread lame features one Japanese feather, hi-stainless platinum-coated, double edge blade for scoring.
Any bread maker excited to receive this as a gift. Especially those bread makers who bake sourdough bread or who enjoy being artistic in their bread baking style.
Now, getting more into the hands-on bread-making tools, your bread baker is going to love how much easier things are with a Danish dough whisk from Amazon.
This is the bread making tool that will be used to blend the ingredients together before you throw that bread on the counter to knead. I bought this tool as a bread-making gift for my husband years ago for his sourdough bread making, and this tool sees use often.
We like that this one has a measurement converter right on it. Now how about that.
What a name for such a useful tool!!! Not lame at all. We think this is a great gift idea for a bread maker. This bread lame from Amazon is anything but lame. It is very handy, and you may wonder, why not just use a knife?
If a knife is not sharp enough to split a hair, it won't fare very well for slicing rivets into the top of a bread loaf to properly score the bread or make intricate bread loaf designs. You truly need a razor blade-like sharpness to make those deep, intricate slices in bread dough.
*Use at your own risk. Please be careful when using sharp tools as your cooking and baking accessories.
When you slice your bread dough after it has risen, it creates those beautiful cut lines you see in artisan loaves, such as baguettes and focaccia.
If your knife is not sharp enough like a razor blade, it could deflate the dough in spots if it catches or skips on the sticky, dough. This bread making tool is made for slicing those beautiful rivets in your loaves to have your bread looking like a thing of beauty.
This bread proofing basket from Amazon is also a very handy tool and gift idea for the bread baker. The dough will not stick to the basket as it is rising, so long as you remember to not wash this basket ever.
A bread basket is made for bread proofing and should never get wet. To clean a bread proofing basket, tap upside down over your sink or garbage and get any flour out. You can also wipe any residual flour off with a clean paper towel. If any bread dough is left, take out what you can while it is doughy, and get the rest out after it dries.
TIP: You can take this bread making basket and fill with some of the items we have listed above, and then if you can get some different size mason jars to fill with different kinds of flour, then, you can wrap it all with cellophane and give as a bread makers gift basket! This would be a really great bread makers gift idea.
The last few items are for THE MASTER BREAD MAKING GURU:
This handmade wooden bread knife is absolutely beautiful. What we really like about this gift, is you are able to choose the wood it is made from.
Wood choices for this bread knife include:
A bread making thermometer is needed for accuracy in bread temperature reading. When every minute counts, you want that loaf to come out perfect, and every oven is different.
This is why it is good for the cooking time to be a guideline only. The bread will be done when it reaches a certain internal temperature, and you can check this with a bread thermometer from Amazon.
Add this tool on as a gift for your bread maker. And if you are going for a colored theme, this bread-making kitchen tool matches the kitchen scale listed above in teal.
I have been cooking my bread in one of these for many years now, and absolutely love it. It is made out of red clay, so before you use it you will soak the lid in water for 15 minutes before putting the bread in it and into the oven.
Plus, this bread baker is versatile and you can really cook anything in it. We love to use our Romertopf to cook fish in as well.
Any bread maker will fall in love with this piece, and we HIGHLY recommend using it as a great gift idea for any bread maker or bread baker. Plus, it is really gorgeous to display. We keep most of our bread-making tools inside the Romertopf so they are all together, including our bread lame and extra blades, thermometer, whisk and dough scraperJust make sure to keep out of reach from your kids if you decide to do the same.
If the bread baker you are buying for is a bread making guru, then this is a bread making gift that they NEED to have. They are probably making bread quite often and are constantly looking for something to keep it in. These natural linen bread bags by Bread Story on Amazon are a great option to store bread in and are so cute!
This custom-engraved bread cutting board is made from Acacia wood and marble, and is sealed with food-grade mineral oil, making it a beautiful gift for a bread maker that will last for a very long time.
We love the idea of using this as the base for a bread bakers gift basket! Add some items on top of this custom bread cutting board and wrap it with cellophane wrap. Your bread maker would love this.
This is an item that will really be something exciting for that person who loves to make things from scratch, and it is not as intimidating as it sounds. Imagine milling your own flour for your homemade bread?
This KitchenAid grain mill attachment from Amazon easily grinds low-moisture grain such as:
Your bread maker can choose the level of grind so they can have a smooth flour or a more coarse 'cracked wheat' kind of texture for their bread making (or pizza dough, polenta, baby food or anything else you can dream of making from scratch with this baby!)
If you are looking for a more dedicated bread mill that isn't an attachment to a Kitchen Aid, you will definitely want to check out the NutriMill Harvest Stone Grain Mill from Amazon.
This grain mill stands alone and is absolutely fabulous, and would make an amazing gift for the bread maker in your life.
If you are considering buying a grain mill, we HIGHLY suggest you check this one out.
There is a video in the link that shows it in use and I love everything about this one.

If you were wondering about the categories we were talking about for the items above, we have divided bread-making into three levels of experience and frequency of bread baking:
The Bread Novice, with the dream of bread making. You may hear the bread dreamer say things such as: "Ya, that is something I have always wanted to do. I just haven't gotten into it yet!"
The Occasional Loafer. This bread maker uses a bread machine or makes it by hand, and can often be heard in the midst of conversational quips stating: "Oh, I love homemade bread! I'm going to host a dinner soon and make sure there is a fresh loaf on the table!"
The Master Bread Making Guru. This yeasty bread master can be found in the kitchen at ALL times. They have a sourdough starter in the fridge sleeping...and have proudly "had it for years!"
What category do you fall into? What about the bread maker in your life?
We have plenty of gift ideas for bread makers and bread bakers and for any and all of the bread maker wannabes. Baking bread can be as easy as you want it to be and no matter which level you are at, a warm, fresh out of the oven loaf is soooo rewarding.
Bread is the food that brings us together. It is comforting, delicious and is great for dipping, with butter, in soup, with pasta, as a bowl for chili and so many other things. What many people don't know (who are not *yet* bread makers), is the joy that comes with making bread from scratch. It is honestly like therapy. It is a favorite past time in my home and is something we all enjoy doing together.
We hope you enjoy this bread makers gift list and you have a great time picking out the best items for that bread maker or bread baker in your life!
