“I believe the holidays are for slowing down, spending time with family, and eating delicious food,” says Tieghan Gerard, the creative culinary force behind recipe blog Half Baked Harvest. For the New York Times bestselling cookbook author, suiting up in a handmade linen apron and breaking out her faithful rolling pin is all in a day’s work—and now, with the launch of the limited-edition Half Baked Harvest x Etsy holiday collection, you can incorporate some of Tieghan’s cozy, vintage-inspired style into your own home this season, too. “I wanted to bring the look and feel of my own kitchen to life through this collaboration with timeless essentials people will love to use and gift to others,” she says. Scroll on to browse the full line, co-designed by the Colorado-based tastemaker and 12 stellar Etsy sellers, which includes heirloom-quality recipe stands, laser-cut Christmas cake toppers, seasonal scented candles, and more gorgeously giftable cookware, decor, and hosting must-haves.
Painted by the former children’s book illustrator behind ceramic cookware shop 7 Doors Studio and available in your choice of reindeer or Christmas tree motifs, these charming measuring spoons will add a heaping pinch of holiday spirit to any kitchen counter. (They’re just too special to stash in a drawer!)
Each of Light & Paper’s birch wood cake toppers starts as a hand-drawn illustration, giving your desserts a human touch that’s as unique as your brilliant bakes. Shaped like jolly gingerbread men and flying reindeer, the coordinated laser-cut ornaments double as adorable gift tags.
Treat your baking buddies to a few of Confetti Mill’s beautifully understated potholders, oven mitts, and kitchen towels, which are sewn from a soft and durable linen. The forest green and oatmeal hues are festive yet subtle, so they can stay in rotation year-round—plus, they’re machine washable.
Stuck in the Mud Pottery’s wheel-thrown candle holders and salt cellars will delight both the boho-chic and modern minimalist fans on your gift list with their sleek designs and gorgeous glazes. The vintage-inspired staples are as classic as they come, so go on and scoop up an extra pair for your own yuletide dinner tables while you’re at it!
When you’re done rolling out pie crusts, wash the dough off your hands with a chunky bar of soap from RFRESH in a spiced cider, forest dew, or rose clay and oatmeal scent. Created with plant-based oils and natural botanicals, the set of three also makes a thoughtful, eco-minded stocking stuffer.
Before you start your next baking binge, slip on a luxuriously laid-back linen apron from Salt Shop Handmades to get in the spirit and keep your festive threads flour-free—or send one to your favorite pastry pro for major brownie points.
Channel Tieghan’s cookie box prowess with these clever kraft paper bakery box kits from A La Modo, which come ready to assemble with parchment paper, baker’s twine, and jingle bell adornments. Just add your homemade vanilla ginger shortbread wreaths and holly-jolly Santa cookies and get ready to delight friends and family with your doorstep deliveries.
The delectable details in these original illustrated holiday cards by Lovely Earthlings pair perfectly with a box of freshly baked goodies, but they’re also sweet enough to send on their own. Can you spot the tiny candy canes and mini pumpkin pies?
Trim the tree with these crescent moon, snowflake, and tree-shaped ceramic ornaments from Hereafter, which are hand-dipped in silvery blue and snow-colored glazes and finished with Italian cotton ribbon trim for a timeless spin on a holiday classic.
If you can’t break bread in-person with loved ones this season, send them a freshly baked loaf in a reusable bag from JbirddesignsCo instead. Choose from a rectangular cotton or round muslin pouch to keep treats like Tieghan’s no-knead sourdough extra fresh.
Thanks to their heirloom-quality craftsmanship, these yellow birch wooden rolling pins and cookbook stands from Cattails Woodwork will help families make memories in the kitchen for years to come. Bonus: The rolling pins come in large and small sizes, so little ones can join the fun.
These soy wax candles from Convivial—which come in ready-to-gift packaging and include a dust cover and matchbook set—will help maximize the hygge vibes all winter long. Each one burns for up to 60 hours, or the time it takes to decorate approximately 47 gingerbread houses.
