What to get for the person who's constantly making you (and everyone else) from-scratch dinners during the week, soup when you're sick, and goodies for every holiday? Well, you're certainly not going to bake for her! Instead, pick out one of these great gifts. She's sure to put them to good use.

Here's what you get the person who makes everything from scratch.

  1. Stamp Activity Kit, $18 at Yellow Owl Workshop: This way, she'll be able to make sure everyone knows she made that jar of jam.
  2. Copper Pasta Maker, $100 at Crate & Barrel: The perfect countertop accessory, this machine cranks out restaurant-quality linguine, spaghetti, and lasagna noodles.
  3. Steel Bread Bin, $6o at Joseph Joseph: Her homemade bread has to go somewhere, right? This sleek steel bread bin has a bamboo top that doubles as a cutting board when it's time to eat.
  4. Stoneware Pickling Crock with Weights, $99 at Kaufmann Mercantile: Preserving, pickling, and fermenting vegetables has never looked so good. This crock is made in Ohio and hand-finished, hand-glazed, and hand-stamped.
  5. Butter Churner, $40: Sure, she doesn't need a butter churner, but she'll probably be pumped to have one.
  6. Evak Airless Storage Canisters, from $10: These jars feature ingenious lids, which filter the air out of the canisters as they get pushed down. Great for storing that homemade granola.
  7. Crux Mortar and Pestle, $80 at Umbra Shift: Made of marble and beechwood, this three-piece set can be used in different ways to grind spices, herbs, and teas. The wood bowl is for softer milling, while the marble dish is for crushing harder ingredients.
  8. Stoneware Round Casserole Dish with Lid, $80 at Somewhere Goods: This speckled casserole dish might steal some of the attention from her homemade stew, but she'll love it anyway.
  9. Pie Bird, $11 at Le Creuset: This time-honored baker's tool is still a total essential and a must-get if the baker in your life doesn't already have one.
  10. Tiered Dessert Stand, $44 at Brookfarm General Store: Homemade treats from a near-pro deserve to be put on display.
