Get Baking

Here's a fun gift for a VIP who loves to whip up short cakes and fruit pies.

If there's one show that everyone seems to have binged during the pandemic, it's The Great British Bake Off (known in the States as The Great British Baking Show). A great thank-you gift for someone who has been trying out recipes right and left is one of the many cookbooks that have been spun out of the competition. Among the many options by the hosts are The Great British Bake Off: Everyday, by original hosts Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood ($43 on Amazon), and The Great British Baking Show: Love to Bake, by current hosts Hollywood and Prue Leith ($22 on Amazon). Or you could just go with How to Bake by Hollywood ($22 on Amazon). Don't forget to volunteer as a taster.
