Christmas gift orders

As Christmas is rapidly approaching, we would like to make the ordering of our gift subscriptions as straight forward as possible.

Therefore we have added a “Christmas gift” option to the checkout page. When this option is selected we will post out your gift message to give as a Christmas present, and then we will then post out the 1st baking kit out on the 3rd of January.

If you wish to discuss this further or if you have any special requirements please email us

The challenge of original gift giving

These days, it can be a real challenge to find different and original gifts for birthdays, Christmas and special occasions.

We’ve long moved on from the socks and handkerchief gifts favoured by our grandparents and, if we’re honest, we’re probably getting a little bit jaded with the various novelty gifts doing the rounds at the moment.

But no matter what the occasion is, we’ve got an idea for a gift that keeps giving…

Here at If I Knew You Were Coming, we have created an exciting new way to bake. You can buy a friend or a family member a monthly baking subscription, priced from £17.99 to £77.99 (plus P&P, or free over £40). They will then receive a baking kit box through their letterbox which contains a recipe and ingredients to bake a quick and delicious treat every month for three, six or 12 months – it literally is the gift that keeps on giving.

The short shopping list includes no more than four items and the detailed recipe sets out everything you need to do, so it is the perfect present for bakers of all levels, from beginner to advanced. If you do buy one as a gift, just let us know and we can post the first subscription box out so it arrives on the day of your choice (post permitting) and we can also include a gift message if you wish.

There are a number of options available depending on how much you are looking to spend, the length of the subscription and the type of treats the recipient prefers, including:

Featuring gorgeous high quality Belgian chocolate, these recipes include Classic Chocolate Brownie, White Chocolate Blondie and Caramel Brownie – perfect for the chocaholic in your life! They also include parchment to bake in, so there is no need for a brownie tin.

This kit features White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies, Coconut and White Chocolate Cookies and Chocolate Chip and Orange Cookies – your friend or family member certainly won’t be disappointed when our Champion Cookies land on their doormat!

These delicious treats are so yummy they won’t want to share them with anyone! This subscription includes Apple and Sultana Muffins, Caramel and Chocolate Muffins and Almond and Poppy Seed Muffins. These also include 6 large coffee shop style muffin cases.

For someone with a summer birthday, this is the perfect gift to enjoy in the sunshine, with scrumptious recipes including Coconut and White Chocolate Cookies, Strawberries and Cream Muffins and Lemon Drizzle Muffins.

This selection is the ultimate baking gift set, perfect for bakers of any skill. We will send out a baking kit once a month for six months which will include all dry ingredients, a short shopping list and details of a few baking tools needed, such as spoons, baking trays etc.

As above, this is the ultimate baking gift set which offers a fantastic kit once a month for 12 months. It truly is a delightful gift for the baking enthusiast in your life, offering them a brand new recipe to look forward to every month.

As well as our subscription boxes, we also offer gift vouchers. If you would like to stay up-to-date with all our latest news and product announcements, be sure to take a look at our Facebook and Twitter.

new beginnings

Well, here goes for my first ever blog…
I’m Katie the co-founder of If I Knew You Were Coming. We are a new business providing baking kits for Muffins and Cookies. All you need to add are the wet ingredients…butter / oil / milk etc.
I thought I would take my first blog as an opportunity to explain a little about the business and where the idea came from.
My husband Chris and I are both passionate about food and have tried a couple of savoury food subscriptions, where you get some of the herbs / spices to create really yummy meals. One long drive home from Weston Super Mare, Chris and I got talking about business ideas, as I was due to go back to work following maternity leave for my second daughter. I’ll be honest…I didn’t relish the idea of going back as I wanted to spend more time with my girls, so we had a 5 hour brain storm session on what I could do from home, and the idea of a baking subscription was born. We have since developed this into not just subscriptions, but also one off baking kits.
The subscriptions work by paying a one off fee and then for the next 3 months you will receive a kit which contains a recipe card and all of the dry ingredients you will need to bake really delicious, really simple bakes at home. We currently have 3 subscriptions…Champion Cookies, with 3 different cookie recipes, Marvellous Muffins, with 3 different muffin recipes and Celebrate Summer, with a mix of 3 muffin / cookie recipes. All of the kits are in boxes that will fit perfectly through your letterbox, so no need to worry that you won’t be in to receive the delivery.
We also offer each of the recipes within the subscriptions as one off purchases. The subscriptions and the one off kits make really tasty gifts for people who love to bake, but don’t have a lot of time, or don’t have all of the store cupboard ingredients you need.
We make it nice and simple, we weigh everything perfectly and give you a short shopping list, all you have to do is put it all together and bake!
I have worked hard to make sure that all of the recipes we send out are quick to do and really yummy! All of the recipes we have on offer have been tried and tested numerous times and funnily enough, I never run out of willing taste testers!
