2020 dessert lover gift guide

Fellow dessert lovers out there, raise your hands! I can never turn down a delicious cookie or cake or piece of chocolate. And for us dessert people, the holidays are an even more magical time. Desserts make easy, thoughtful gifts, and they are always appreciated by someone who loves sweets.

So, if you’re looking to treat yourself or another dessert lover in your life, grab some ideas from my delicious gift guide below!

1. Mason Jar Baking Mixes


If you have a friend who loooves dessert but doesn’t love baking, send them baking mix for their favorite cookies, conveniently packaged in an eco-friendly mason jar. Salt N Sprinkles’ mason jar baking mixes are vegan, gluten-free, and tasty. Plus, you’ll be supporting a Black-owned, women-owned local business in L.A. with your purchase!

2. Set of Melamine Mixing Bowls with Lids


Gimme all the rainbow kitchen accessories, please! I’m in love with this set of melamine mixing bowls by Williams Sonoma and Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem. Amirah’s known for her famous Rainbow Cake, and these bowls have all the rainbow vibes.

3. Milk Jar Cookies Assorted Box


Need to send cookies to someone special? Choose how many cookies you’d like to send in a Milk Jar Cookies assorted box, and you’ll get a mix of their most popular cookies. Birthday Cookie, Chocolate Pecan Caramel, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, and more!

4. Milk Bar 6” Birthday Cake


No dessert lovers gift guide would be complete without Milk Bar’s iconic Birthday Cake! Rainbow-flecked vanilla cake, creamy frosting, crunchy crumbs, and rainbow sprinkles. It’s a grownup version of your childhood birthday cake!

5. Norman Love Confections 25-Piece Signature Gift Box


There’s just something special about a box of chocolates, isn’t there? And when you get a box of chocolates from Norman Love Confections, any occasion becomes even sweeter! Each gourmet chocolate is decadent, handcrafted, and gorgeous.

6. The Power of Sprinkles by Amirah Kassem


This book by Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem makes a great holiday gift for amateur bakers, aspiring cake decorators, or anyone who loves desserts and appreciates a beautifully baked and decorated cake! 

7. Gourmet S’Mores Kit


Enough about cookies for a second. How about this gourmet s’mores kit from XO Marshmallow, a women-owned gourmet marshmallow brand? The kit includes gluten-free grahams, Hershey’s chocolate, and gourmet vanilla bean XO marshmallows, all wrapped up in the cutest packaging.

8. Celeste Cake Stand


Elevate your cake game (#sorrynotsorry for that pun) with a gold and enamel cake stand from Anthropologie! Once you place your finished cake on this cake stand, you won’t be able to resist sneaking a piece.

9. Flour Shop Adult Oven Mitt


Take a look at another adorable collaboration item between Amirah Kassem and Williams Sonoma! The Flour Shop oven mitt looks so cute and retro with its silicone stripes in rainbow hues.

10. Iridescent Cake and Pie Serving Knife


Check out the rainbow colors on Explore Crafts’ iridescent cake and pie serving knife! I love utensils like these that can bring a little sparkle and shine into the kitchen.

11. Rainbow Cake Ornament


Bring a little sweetness and color to your loved one’s holiday decor, with this adorable little rainbow cake ornament. It’s even got glitter between the rainbow layers!

12. Levain Signature Cookie Assortment


New York City bakery Levain is famous for their tall, thick, decadent cookies. If you’ve never had their cookies before, Levain’s Signature Cookie Assortment includes their four original flavors: Chocolate Chip Walnut, Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip, and Oatmeal Raisin. Yum!

13. Flour Shop Mini Spatula Set


I promise this is my final rainbow-themed gift idea on this list! (I could totally add more, though.) If you have Amirah Kassem’s mixing bowl set and rainbow oven mitt…why not top it off with the Flour Shop set of mini spatulas? Colorful, functional, and great for making your own cakes!
