  • Hand Mixer: For the holiday baker in your life, a cute hand mixer paired with this Clean Cakes cookbook (every drool-worthy cakes is made with wholesome ingredients like hearty grains and fruit – I’m obsessed with this book!) and this versatile flat bottom wood cake stand, which can be used for desserts, muffins, bread or even a cheese plate.


  • Toaster: This brand of high-end retro appliances is getting major attention. Pair a toaster with a loaf of bread from your favorite local bakery and a fun bread-baking cookbook. My pick: San Francisco-based bakery Tartine and co-owner Chad Robertson’s bread cookbook.


  • Espresso Maker: This adorable stovetop espresso maker comes in one, three and six cup sizes. Pair it with espresso beans from your favorite local coffee shop and a book about Fika – the Swedish tradition of enjoying a relaxing coffee break with friends of family (I could use more of this cultural tradition in my fast-paced life).
