With Christmas right around the corner, I wanted to share some of my favorite kitchen and baking ideas that make beautiful gifts this season. There is nothing quite like making memories in the kitchen with your family even if you are not the world’s greatest baker. I totally am not but I do love to bake Christmas cookies and our holiday meals with my family. I actually just bought a recipe book to start writing our favorite recipes down so I can pass them onto Lauren when she gets older.
As I was baking the other week, it got me thinking about one of my most favorite appliances in my kitchen, the KitchenAidÒ ArtisanÒ Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer stand mixer and how it would make the most amazing gift this season. I use this a ton and still keep finding new uses for it. So I thought I would share all my favorite features, my favorite attachment and other things you can pair with it to give it as a gift this season.

My KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer is my absolute favorite and I just love it in this gorgeous red color. It is available in over 20 colors, but my personal favorite is the Empire Red.
This one is the 5 Quart and is the perfect size to store on the counter. I like to tuck it into the corner next to my baking jars to have a little baking prep area ready to go.
This Artisan mixer has 10 speeds which makes whipping up ingredients super easy. If you are looking for some yummy Christmas cookie recipes to bake this season then you will love these ones!
The KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer comes with these attachments – (1) Coated Flat Beater, (1) Coated Dough Hook, (1) 6-Wire Whip, (1) Pouring Shield.
There are also 10 different attachments, sold separately, so you make everything from fresh pasta to burgers, veggie noodles, ice cream and more! I love the amazing versatility of this one appliance!
But to be honest I love the KitchenAidÒ Food Grinder attachment the best. It is sold separately and really is the first attachment you should get after you get your mixer.
The food grinder comes with a fine plate, used for grinding meat, and a coarse plate, used for griding firm fruits, vegetables, and cheeses. I love using fresh ingredients to create some amazing dinners and baked goods for my family. The grinder also attaches so easily to the power hub so switching it out with another one makes cooking and baking effortless.
As you can see I am so in love with mine that I thought I would put together a baking holiday gift guide centered around the KitchenAid Artisan Stand mixer to help you (and maybe get one for yourself!) give the gift of baking and building memories in the kitchen with family and friends.
All the items I selected are from Walmart and here is a peek at what to look for on the shelves. They are so easy to find in the Housewares department and have so many options to choose from.
So start thinking of who you have to buy for and here are some curated baking gift ideas all inspired by the KitchenAid Artisan hand mixer! I just know anyone would feel so special getting a gift like this this year!
Happy holidays and let me know what you’re baking up in the kitchen this season!
