I love this gift idea! And not only is it a good one for Christmas, but it would work well too as a birthday gift, shower gift, housewarming present, even for Mother's Day. And who wouldn't love to be the recipient of this?! I sure would.

Super simple and you can do it one of two ways. Either purchase a brand new baking pan from the store or if your recipient is into the old stuff you could do this with a vintage pan purchased from a thrift store or antique mall. You know if you give me a pink Pyrex baking dish as a gift I'm in heaven!
Once you figure out the baking dish or pan you want to give simply add something to bake in it. For a cake pan, to me the obvious choice is a couple of yummy cake or brownie mixes. Maybe even a tub of frosting too.
Baking mixes can be picked up and set aside whenever they are on sale. You probably have a couple extra ones in your pantry, truth be told. With baking sheets I think it would be fun to do the cookie mixes, with some sprinkles and a spatula. You are good to go.
Or, get even more creative and make your own homemade baking mix in a quart jar. Attach the instructions with a card and some ribbon too. You are only as limited as your own imagination. So many possibilities. Just have fun with it.
And remember, only 8 more months until Christmas! Ha, ha! Anybody started preparing yet?
