Sprinkles & Snow: Holiday Gift Guide


It is hard to believe that it’s already that time of year again! It seems like Christmas was just a month ago, seriously! In any case, this means it’s once again time to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. I don’t know about you but it seems like as we become a more globally connected society the harder it is to find a unique and special gift. I take gift giving very seriously, so giving out a generic gift really pains me.

Just looking at my site you can clearly see I am a girly-girl. Okay, maybe that is an understatement. That being said, I am always looking for feminine baking tools and supplies. I really appreciate quality so I am not just going to buy something simply because it comes in the color pink. That being said, I decided to put together a list of things are pretty,  useful and feminine. These products will make any girly baker swoon, and they could also make the perfect gift for yourself.
1.) Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer: How can you go wrong with a stand mixer? They last practically forever and make whipping up a 15-minute frosting easier than ever. Since having moved to Texas, I no longer have my stand mixer. It is possibly the thing I miss most about Colorado except maybe my family and the mountains. 😉 They come in several colors, but this pink one has always had my eye.
2.) Royal Albert Tea Stand, Mixing bowl, and Measuring Cups: I love this brand! For fine bone china, it is not outrageously priced. All the patterns are so pretty and feminine Including this beautiful tea stand. The mixing bowls and measuring cups are made of porcelain and are dishwasher safe.
3.) Leah’s Pralines Creole Sampler: These are perfect for any lover of all things sweet! They are a New Orleans classic and are made fresh daily. This set includes both traditional and (my personal favorite!) creamy pralines. It also includes pecan brittle and frosted pecans. The quality is what sets this brand apart. They use quality ingredients, which you will definitely be able to taste.
4.) Sweetapolita Sprinkle Medley Variety Pack: These are legitimate sprinkles. They make regular sprinkles seem dull and boring. They are made with premium ingredients. Another plus is their adorable packaging, and they come in a variety of gorgeous color combinations.
5.) Kate Spade “One Smart Cookie” Prep Boards: These glass prep boards are too cute! They have a Parisian theme, which hits the heart of almost any baker. They are such a fun switch from typical wooden cutting boards. And with the Kate Spade name, they are sure to please any recipient.
6.) Laduree Keychain and ‘Sweet’ Cookbook: Most people think Laduree only makes macaroons and pastries. Truth is they offer many other things including makeup, candles, cookbooks, and keychains. Their keychains are very chic and are guaranteed to make you crave some of their macaroons. They sell multiple cookbooks, but my favorite is the “Sucre” Sweet Recipes Cookbook. It has over 100 recipes from the world famous tea house/bakery. They even explain how to recreate their heavenly macaroons ‘at home’.
7.) Jaqua “Pink Buttercream Frosting” Hand Soap & Hand Cream: I have been a long time fan of this brand. Their Buttercream Frosting Hand cream is incredible. It smells just like real frosting, which will always draw in a few curious bystanders. Be prepared to share! The hand soap is velvety and smooth and infused with real vanilla bean. It is extra nourishing to hands that can become dry after hand-washing dishes.
8.) Jo Malone Sweet Almond and Macaroon Candle: This candle is Heaven in a jar. Its beautiful scent is derived from almonds, coconut, cherries, and vanilla. It will instantly make your home smell like a gourmet bakery. The pretty box and signature black bow are the perfect feminine accent to this lovely candle.
9.) CBK Cake Stands: I am seriously obsessed with these metal cake stands. I currently have about five or six of them in my kitchen. I love their antique look along with their draping sparking acrylic gems. They create a Marie Antoinette vibe and will make stunning showpieces out of all of your baked goods. The glass inserts make them super easy to clean.
10.) Macaroon Baking mat: This Silicone baking mat is a Godsend for bakers who love to make French Macaroons. The mat is made of premium quality non-stick silicone, which makes for clean and even baking. The preprinted circle templates ensure that you make perfectly sized macaroons every time.
11.) Rifle Paper Co. Recipe Box: Every baker cherishes their beloved recipes. This cute recipe box is the perfect place to store them. It is printed with a beautiful floral print and looks incredibly vintage in the most adorable way. This tin will make you want to keep all of your recipes organized.
12.) Pink Hot Chocolate: I’m not going to lie, I partially love this hot chocolate for the simple  fact that it is pink. Nevertheless, It is gourmet and is made with white chocolate which delivers a much creamier consistency. All you need to do is add water, (I recommend milk or half & half) and enjoy this pink drink in a tea cup or coffee mug.
13.) Jessie Steele Aprons and oven mitts: Jessie Steele’s aprons and kitchen textiles are easily the most feminine on the market. Better yet, they are of superior quality. They carry many different prints and styles that are sure to suit the taste of any baker.
14.) Sur La Table Paris Eiffel Tower Spatula: I use this rubber spatula all the time. The Eiffel Tower detail is adorable. It is perfect for any baker that has a heart for Paris. It is amazing quality, and the rubber portion is dishwasher safe. I have had mine for at least a year, and it still looks brand new.
15.) McKenzie Childs Flower Market Canisters: This collection is definitely my favorite from McKenzie Childs. It is so dainty and feminine, and it comes in three beautiful colors. These enamel canisters can be used to store flour, sugar, and many other baking ingredients. You could even store your baked goodies in them.
