The month of September has arrived, which means that Christmas is just around the horizon. Although Christmas will never be the same as it was before the pandemic, our traditions such as putting up a Christmas tree, lights, and other ornaments, as well as preparing Noche Buena and gift-giving, will continue. There will undoubtedly be some little or even big changes to our Christmas traditions, but as Filipinos, we will always find ways to unite and celebrate this great season with our families and friends.
Now the question is, are you ready for your Christmas Gift Giving tradition? If not, here are some Christmas gift suggestions that you can give to your loved ones.
A Filipino household is not complete without a home baker who enjoys making cake, pastries, sweets, and other confectioneries that satisfy our sweet tooth. These goodies that they make are always present at birthday celebrations, weddings, anniversaries, and other family gatherings. These home bakers can be our mom, aunts, sisters, uncles, or nieces and other family members and friends who have local small businesses that offer cake, delicacies, and pastries sold during the holiday season.
Here are some Christmas Gift Ideas and catalog to consider if you want to make this Christmas particularly special for them:
MUFFIN or COOKIE PAN
A nonstick muffin pan or a mold in which muffins or cupcakes are baked may be one of the greatest gifts for that home baker who likes creating muffins and cupcakes, as the nonstick coating of the pan prevents muffins or cupcakes from sticking and makes them easy to wash.
NON STICK SILICONE MAT
Your home baker friend or family member may omit the cooking spray, pan grease, and parchment paper if you use a nonstick silicone mat. Placed directly over an existing cookie sheet or countertop, the silicone mat is a fantastic alternative for promoting healthier results and optimum ease in the kitchen while baking or preparing sweets.
A baker is always in need of baking pans. That is why getting them is considered one of the perfect gifts that you can give bakers. Baking pans are used to contain both fluid mixtures like cake batter and thick solid masses of food like savory hotdish recipes. Baking pans come in a wide range of sizes, materials, surface textures, and colors.
The proper measuring of ingredients is essential in baking, so shopping or getting one for your baker friend will ensure that their baking project for their shop will be finished correctly.
Aside from baking utensils, try gifting your home baker friends or relatives decorative materials for baking, such as cookie cutters, frosting pens, icing baking sets, and nozzle sets. You may even surprise them with functional storage for their kitchen tools or an oven if you’re feeling generous this holiday season, they would surely love and appreciate your generosity as it can help their growing local shop or hobby.

THE FAMILY CHEF
There will always be that accidental chef in the family who enjoys cooking and can provide the most desired delicacies whenever the family gathers.
Consider the following present suggestion for this family member or friend:
A food steamer, also known as a steam cooker, is a small kitchen device that uses steam heat to cook or prepare various meals by enclosing the food in a closed vessel to prevent steam escape.
A multicooker is an electric kitchen device that uses a timer to automate cooking. A common multicooker is capable of boiling, simmering, baking, frying, deep-frying, grilling, stewing, steaming, and browning food.
An air fryer is a tiny countertop convection oven that simulates deep frying without the need for oil. A fan circulates hot air at high speeds, resulting in a crisp coating produced by browning processes such as the Maillard reaction.
Aside from kitchen appliance presents for your family chef, you can also give them some kitchen gear or cooking classes accessible on the website of different culinary schools and their partners in the country.
