Lidl's Christmas baking essentials are decking out the Middle of Lidl this week – and they're going to be your fave culinary companions over the festive period. Why? Well, if you've only recently got into baking, spurred on, perhaps, by Bake Off, you might need to kit out your kitchen all at once – and at this time of year, you'll want to do that on a budget. Or, perhaps you know a budding cook and want to gift them some culinary kit for Christmas.

Whatever, Lidl's selection is festive, useful and spot on when it comes to affordable pricing – and there's everything from food mixers to tea towels. So, keep scrolling to check out which festive finds we think you should have in your kitchen for a crazy low price (as per usual, when it comes to Lidl).

3. Weigh up your festive food with these digital kitchen scales

We wanted to weigh up the pros and cons of bagging this bargain priced weighing scale ahead of the Christmas cooking season but we couldn’t find any negatives… especially for that price! So, it has an auto shut-off function, a tare function and an automatic zero and overload indicator. It is also super efficient with precise weighing to the gram. We can’t believe it can weigh up to 5kg! Choose from a selection of different Crimbo patterns. Oh and the battery is included. We love! 

Silvercrest Digital Kitchen Scales, £5.99.

4. Baked goods taste better from a high-quality but low-price tin

These cake tins are absolutely what we need in the run up to Christmas when our culinary tricks are on demand to help and host all of those family and friends' parties. Choose from a mini springform cake tin and a mini round fluted cake tin… or buy both as they’re only £2.49 each. They are high quality with non-stick coating (phew) and are also easy to clean. We can’t ask for much more at that price.
