    1. A durable, oven-safe rose silicone mold perfect for brownies, tiny cakes, and muffins, because the joy of baking may be in the taste but the second biggest joy of baking is showing off how beautiful it looks on Instagram.

    2. A Baby Yoda cookie cutter that takes "he's cute enough to EAT!!" to a whole other level, y'all.

    3. An oven-safe silicone cookie shot mold perfect for any kind of mood, whether it's a snuggly milk-and-cookies shot kinda mood or the lawless "put some tequila in this cylindrical rice krispy treat THIS INSTANT" kinda mood.

    4. A mini brownie pan that makes sure every single brownie has that coveted ~edge~ that all true chocolate lovers like to live on.

    5. A mini waffle maker that will up your dessert game with an entire recipe booklet to inspire new waffle-shaped treats (not that you really need much more inspo beyond "SHOVE A BUNCH OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS IN THE BATTER," but I digress).

    6. An illustrated Disney Princess cookbook full of sweet treats like Ariel's Sea Turtle Cupcakes, so you can bake like ~royalty~ 👑.

    7. An "I Can't, I Have Cookies To Bake" shirt that is, quite frankly, a Big Social Distancing Mood.

    8. A nonstick donut pan that will pop out the kind of warm, melt-in-your mouth donuts you can usually only get if you happen to be at a bakery the *instant* it opens (a dessert power move if there ever were one).

    9. A bread maker to help you join the bread-wagon of everyone who's been lighting up the #StayHome tag on Instagram with absurdly beautiful loaves (without the $$$ of getting a fancy bread machine).

    10. A Harry Potter-embossed rolling pin, because let's be honest, the statistical odds of one of your baking marathons not coinciding with a Harry Potter movie marathon is zero to none.

    11. A small ramekin for all your teensy, high-heat dessert needs — these are ideal for everything from gooey lava cakes individual crème brûlées, and a perfect way to romance-ify your social distance date nights.

    12. A set of specially curated dessert and baking salts that will so drastically elevate your tried-and-true recipes that you may just trade your sweet tooth for a salt one.

    13. A macaron-making kit to help you master France's cutest and most fickle dessert — anyone who's tried to freehand a delicate macaron shell has done it at their own peril, y'all. This silicone mat and macaron dispensing pen has your back, so you'll get perfectly even, break-resistant shells every time.

    14. An embroidered "Cookie Hair" baseball hat to keep your hair out of the way of your dough, and also let everyone in the kitchen know that you're in Baking Mode now.

    15. A quality loaf pan carefully designed with thick aluminized steel to make sure the bread cooks evenly and thoroughly, so your coveted chocolate sea salt caramel banana bread pops out in one glorious, fluffy piece.

    16. A Minnie and Mickey Mouse cupcake caddy to keep all your baked goods snug and fresh and, most importantly of all, cute as heck.

    17. A set of measuring cups so beautiful that you'll have yet *another* reason to Instagram story your entire baking process for some much needed wholesome content (not all heroes wear capes).

    18. A mess-free cookie scoop with easy release to get you those *chef's kiss* perfectly round cookies you can easily stack for storage (assuming you don't just gobble 'em up straight out of the oven).

    19. A "Sugar Butter Flour" sticker set as a testament to the holy trinity of baking, and also, of course, to Waitress, the mandatory Broadway soundtrack of quarantine bakers everywhere.

    20. A kitty-shaped oven mitt to remind you that even when you're baking in your pajamas for the fifth day in a row, you're the *cat's* pajamas.

    21. A set of handwoven trivets so elegant and sweet that they'll be every bit as much part of your kitchen decor as they'll come in handy for hot baking pans and cookie sheets.

    22. A lovely peach-print apron that will make you feel like you fell out of one of those rom-coms starring a Strikingly Beautiful But Very Stressed Out Protagonist Who Owns A Bakery.

    23. A set of granola molds complete with a recipe booklet, so you can emerge from lockdown to become your truest self: a chocolate chip granola bar influencer.

    24. An elegant, scalloped pie dish that will make your homemade pies look even more stunning without stealing too much attention from the main show (your impeccable crust, duh).

    25. A cake-patterned phone case so you can stay on brand while watching livestreams of recipes online, and also to remind yourself that you probably have something in the oven anytime you get a text.

    26. A "Baking Is My Cardio" mug that is, incidentally, the perfect size for making cakes in a mug.

    27. A pair of cozy baking-inspired socks for you to admire after you kick your feet up and finally *eat* your baking creation du jour.

    28. A set of two long-lasting, beautifully designed baking dishes perfect for any cake, blondie, or brownie fans who are just as much into the presentation of their desserts as eating them.

    29. A set of rolling pie decorating tools to give your cookies and pie crusts a personalized, homey touch.

    30. A baking-inspired dish cloth that not only represents the true spirit of baking, but also comes in a color dark enough to obscure all the melted chocolate stains from when you get a little reckless with your cookie consumption.

    31. A beginner-friendly 14-piece cake-decorating set complete with a piping bag and stainless steel tips, so you can go from zero to Great British Bake-Off in no time flat.

    32. A personalized baking journal so you can chronicle all of your quarantine-themed baking experiments as a pseudo recipe book/diary for your future self to peruse.

    33. A tie-dye Baked By Melissa shirt, aka your new Baking Shirt, which comes with a 25-pack of their iconic cupcakes for baking inspo.

    34. A statement-making cake stand perfect for so many cake-related occasions that you'll be setting it out and admiring it not just for lockdown baking, but for years to come.
