What makes us love bread so much? Is it the gorgeous, golden exterior? The crunchy, crackly crust? Or perhaps the light, moist, buttery insides? Okay, we need to stop we’re getting hungry.
Do you know someone who loves bread as much as we do? Have a sister who’s infamous for demolishing the yeast rolls at Thanksgiving? Maybe you befriended the diner with the regional record for most Olive Garden breadsticks eaten in one sitting? Whatever the case, the holidays are coming up and we’re pretty sure we all have at least one bread lover in our lives.
We’ve already brought you a Disney Black Friday Gift Guide and looked at the 12 Disney toys that Amazon predicts will be the most popular this year.
Now, we’re bringing you what just might be our most helpful post yet. It’s time for The DFB Gift Guide for Bread Lovers…(and yes guys, it’s me…the gift guide is for me).
Bread-based Kitchen Appliances
Remember when we got stuck in quarantine last year? Perhaps you know someone who, like us, got exceedingly into baking during this time. Hey, that’s a bright side to 2020. Fresh baked bread is hard to turn down. Here are some kitchen appliances to snag for your carb-inclined loved one.
Cuisinart Bread Maker
Well, hands down the best gift to give any bread lover is infinite bread. How might one do this, you ask? Well, give a man bread, he’s happy for a day. Teach a man to MAKE bread, he’s happy for life.
Easier than going through grueling baking classes and failed loaves with your BFF is to snag them the Cuisinart Bread Maker for $117.38 and they’ll be baking up-to-two-pound loaves in no time at the push of a button.
Once you have the bread, the next step is to get it perfectly toasted (unless you’re going for plain old baked bread which is fine too). Luckily, there are a ridiculous number of Disney toasters, like, actually ridiculous.
One option, a true classic, is this Mickey Mouse 2-Slice Toaster for $24.99.
If your giftee is more of a Marvel fan, no problem. Choose between the Spider-Man Toaster for $69.99…
…or the Captain Marvel Toaster for $27.95.
And yes, BOTH toasters will toast the hero’s symbol into your bread.
But if you REALLY want to be spoiled for choice, you should find a Star Wars fan who needs some new appliances. There are a LOT of Star Wars Toasters. Why? We couldn’t tell you. Maybe toast is the chosen snack of space.
Maybe your newly baking friend needs a little more help than their culinary instincts and a bread machine, and for that, there are cookbooks.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook
This might be more general than a bread-specific cookbook, but we just can’t pass up on the idea of space bread. If you’ve got a hybrid Star Wars fan and bread lover in your life, we’ve got an option.
Yup, it’s the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook for $16.34, AKA a surefire way to make sure you’re getting the finest of galactic carbs into your stomach.
The Nightmare Before Dinner: Recipes to Die For
Just because it’s Christmas time doesn’t mean we can’t get a little spooky. If you know a crumb enthusiast whose still mourning this year’s Halloween, we might have a good option.
For all those kooky-spooky bread lovers, there’s The Nightmare Before Dinner: Recipes to Die For for $17.95.
The Disney Princess Cookbook
In all seriousness, this next option could be a great pick for a mom or dad who’s looking to bring their little one into cooking and baking or just a Disney-loving family who’s ready to fill up on princess-themed eats.
Know someone who you think that sounds like? Pick up The Disney Princess Cookbook for $9.50.
How to Bake by Paul Hollywood
We KNOW you know someone who got way, WAY too into The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. Hey, it happens. Well, we have just one question: WHY AREN’T THERE MORE SEASONS?
We got a little distracted there. Our actual question is, is that Great British Baking Show friend on your gift list? If so, pick up How to Bake by the one and only Paul Hollywood for $21.99.
The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining 2021
This last one isn’t exactly a cookbook, but it will help any carb-fanatic get their fix when they’re in Disney World in 2021. Whether you’ve got a DFB fan or a loaf fan, we’ve got something that will do the trick.
Pick up a preorder for the DFB Guide To Walt Disney World Dining 2022 for $19.95! Not only will this guide get you all the info you need to find the best bread-based snacks but it’s chock-full of OTHER Disney tips too.
Loaf-lovin’ Kitchenwares and Ingredients
To truly reach full bread potential, you might want to make sure your loved one is stocked on kitchenware and ingredients.
Pumpkin Stitch Oven Mitt
When a baker is pulling their bread out of the oven, or that new bread machine that you also got them, they’re going to need to keep their fingertips protected from the heat. And that means waiting for the bread to cool before you pull a piece off. Yeah, I know you. I AM you.
Well, whether they like Stitch a lot or are prone to making pumpkin bread, the Pumpkin Stitch Oven Mitt for $17.99 could be a winning choice.
Star Wars Billboard Glass Top Serving Tray
And then, of course, it’s time to serve the bread. Any bread lover could appreciate the perfect base for slicing in the Star Wars Billboard Glass Top Serving Tray for $79.90.
Seriously, who knew folks who love bread as much as they love the Force have it made?
Finding Dory Sandwich Container
Perhaps you’re gifting someone who is less of a purist about bread and more practical instead. The Finding Dory Sandwich Container for $8.99 might be the option for them.
We like bread in all it’s forms, whether it’s a dinner roll or a slice of sandwich bread safely containing a pile of meat, cheese, and condiments!
Portable Bread Box with Handle
Alright, now we’ve got one for the bread purist in your life. Maybe you know someone who’s always pining about their wants to carry their fresh-baked loaves wherever they go. Well, do we have the gift for them.
Get this, it’s a Portable Bread Box with Handle. That means that wherever they go, a WHOLE LOAF can follow for just $13.99.
Rapid Rise Instant Yeast
And we are going to wrap up this section with a few essentials of the bread world. What do you need to make bread? Besides a healthy dose of love, you also need yeast.
Any baker will appreciate this stocking stuffer! Grab some Rapid Rise Instant Yeast for $6.99.
Dipping Spices & Oil Gift Set
Okay, maybe this last one isn’t QUITE essential but when you’ve got a beautiful, savory loaf in front of you, you might think it is. It’s a Dipping Spices & Oil Gift Set for $37.94.
We’re talking gourmet bread dip mix and a premium extra virgin olive oil sampler. Yeah. Maybe suggest to your giftee that they invite you over when they crack this bad boy open.
Crust and Crumbtastic Apparel and MORE
Maybe your local bread lover wants nothing to do with the making of the bread at all; they’re more of a bread tasting connoisseur than a baker. Well, we’ve got ya covered on that front — but don’t blame us if it gets a little weird.
Pluto All You Knead is Loaf T-shirt
IT’S PERFECT. We’ve found the perfect gift for a Disney bread fan! Look at this Pluto All You Knead is Loaf T-shirt for $12.59.
It’s beautiful. Yes, Pluto, all we need is loaf too!
Bread Pattern High Waist Yoga Pants
And, how better to match your new bready shirt than with some seriously bready pants. Oh, just wait. You are NOT ready for these.
Imagine the look on your crust-gnawing pal when they peel back the wrapping paper on these Bread Pattern Yoga Pants, which you can buy for $28.9.
Snack All Day DFB Mask
What’s the one must-have accessory in 2021? If you guessed face mask, then you’re absolutely right!
So, gift the final piece to the bread-based ensemble with the Snack All Day DFB Mask. You can get 20% off your DFB purchase if you use code MAGIC at checkout, too! After all, Disney World pretzels are one of our favorite kinds of bread.
We warned you that it was going to get weird. Sometimes the best gifts are seriously off the wall, and we might have found that with this Bread Pillow for $34.99.
The only thing that could make this present better is if it was an ACTUAL 31.4″ baguette instead of a big plushy one stuffed with fluff. Sigh.
While your pal is lounging on their new GIANT bread pillow, you can enhance the experience for them by making their whole room smell like bread — just like Disney does on Main Street, U.S.A.!
How you ask? With this BUTTERED BREAD CANDLE for $19.95. Is this the best option on the list? It might be. (Not kidding — we ordered some right after finding these candles because BREAD SMELLS!)
Three-piece Bread Canvas Art
And if you feel like NONE of these gifts TRULY do justice to your loved one’s bread obsession, then let them immortalize their adoration on the wall of their home forevermore.
