The Best Bakery Gifts for Friendship Day

The Best Bakery Gifts for Friendship Day

Friendship Day is July 30, and while you don't need a special day to show your appreciation, you shouldn't let it pass by without doing something nice for your friends. Whether it's your best friend in the entire world, or a coworker who makes your work days seem just a little bit shorter, it's the perfect opportunity to give a little gift. Friendship Day should be a day to celebrate, and there's nothing better than putting a smile on someone's face.

The best way to put a smile on your friends' faces is to give them a sweet treat. It's simple, sweet, and indulgent. While there is a wide selection of gift ideas, check out some of these sweet (and savory, too!) treats that could be a cute idea while being the perfect gift.

Baking Mixes

Got a friend who loves to bake? Give them a pre-made mix for the perfect baking gift. Depending on their taste, you can go sweet or savory. Nearly everyone loves a good cheddar biscuit, after all. Mixes come in a variety of types and flavors, so you're bound to find one or two that your friend will love. A mix gives a gift that they can enjoy anytime, at their leisure. It's a two-fold gift for the baker in your life, especially if you add a fun little baking tool to go with it.


Everyone has a coffee lover in their circle of friends. If you're giving a gift to someone you don't know very well, then coffee is always a great idea. So whether it's for your coffee snob best friend or the coworker who did you a solid that you haven't had a chance to get to know very well, gift them a bag of good coffee beans or grinds. Our coffee is locally roasted, from hand-selected beans in Central and South America. It's a House Blend exclusive to us.

Cake Jars

These are perfect for anyone! Cupcakes are joy contained in a wrapper, and what's better than that? Try two cupcakes in a reusable mason jar. They're cute, delicious, and generous. They come in multiple flavors, ship anywhere, and you can personalize the label. Let your friends know you love them with cupcakes. There are twelve different flavors, from triple chocolate to key lime to classic birthday cake. You are sure to find something that your friend will like in this listing of flavors.

Sweet Treats

There's such a variety of baked sweet goods that you can find anything for almost anyone.

  • Cookies
  • Cinnamon rolls
  • Brownies
  • Cream cheese coffee cake
  • Cookie sandwiches
  • Muffins

There are so many flavors of cookies available. It's hard to go wrong when you give someone cookies. From classic chocolate chip to ooey-gooey delicious butter pecan, gifting someone cookies is a wonderfully nostalgic way to show your appreciation and love. Try making a cookie basket for them.

For the sandwiches, you can choose between either vanilla or chocolate buttercream. Two cookies — with cream — are better than one.

Muffins are a perfect gift for those who might not want something too sweet. Get a pack of jumbo muffins in an assortment of flavors and provide a quick and sweet breakfast or afternoon treat for your friend.

Brawny brownies or whole coffee cakes let you give a gift that lasts for more than one or two sweet moments. And, who knows, maybe they'll share.

Savory Treats

If you have one of those friends who just doesn't like sweet things, there's a selection of savory treats for them, too. Fresh baked English muffins are the perfect delicious snack or on-the-go breakfast. If your friend is a home cook, then those English muffins can add a delicious base for dishes like eggs benedict. The cheddar biscuit mix mentioned above is also a perfect savory gift — even if you have to do the baking.

Paired Treats

Level up your gift-giving by pairing sweet and savory, or treats and coffee. Biscotti and coffee, for example, is a time-honored pairing. Give cookie sandwiches with your English muffins, or cookies with your brownies. And, of course, coffee goes with anything, especially a whole coffee cake.


When you want to give a fun and thoughtful gift, don't discount baked goods. There is such a variety of both sweet and savory, or even a combination of treats, that you can find anything for anyone, and it's a gift that will certainly be loved. We offer nationwide shipping and customizable labels, so contact us so that we can get your gift shipped before Friendship Day.
