One of my favorite things about the holiday season is giving to others. We give more of ourselves in time and in serving others in need, we pay for the people behind us in a drive-thru, we give more of our time to our families and celebrating in the festivities, we bake treats for our neighbors…the list goes on and on. Some friends and I are sharing our DIY gifts ideas with you as part of the “Seasons Of Simplicity Tour – Christmas Series”, hosted by my friend Krista at The Happy Housie. My gift idea is for the pink-loving baker.
While receiving is fun, I much more prefer to give gifts. I really enjoy putting together thoughtful gifts over just buying something on a list and checking it off. Of course, when I’m Christmas shopping or putting together any kind of gift, it’s always more fun when it’s something I would like and would want as well. Clearly, from the picture above of me and Brooklyn, I love pink and I love to bake. We both do.
This gift idea seems like the best idea because I know I’d be thrilled to receive it. My favorite things in my kitchen are all the pretty things that I use to bake and cook with.
(I’ll link to all items used in this post or similar/suggested items below, in the “shop the post” section.)
So I figured I’d start with a pink mixing bowl, added a cute pink kitchen towel on the bottom (not shown) to prop all the items up, a pink rolling pin, pink whisks and measuring spoons and other pink kitchen utensils. I also found some cute pink marble cupcake liners, some sparkly sugar sprinkles, pink macarons (these can be homemade or purchased from a bakery but I have a fabulous recipe HERE), a pink candle that looks like a macaron, a pink nutcracker since it’s Christmas and then…
…these printable recipe cards with a cute pink Kitchen-aid stand mixer on it. It’s simple and adorable, useful and thoughtful, and I truly believe that any girl who loves pink and loves to bake will simply ADORE this gift!
**Idea! You could also include (in pink) a hand mixer, stand mixer, pink ornaments, pink mixing spoons, pink pot holders, pink kitchen hand soaps/lotions, pink apron, pink cake stand or cupcake stand, pink pots and pans (if going for a larger gift idea – I especially like this idea for a newlywed or new homemaker), pink toaster, pink blender, pink coffee maker, and any other fun pink kitchen accessory or small appliance you can think of! Does she not like pink? Do the gift in her favorite color!**
I’ll attach the document below for you to print out. Just cut the recipe cards out, stack them on top of each other, and tie a ribbon around them.
