Easily the most charming reality show in the history of television, "The Great British Bake Off" (or Great British Baking Show) has earned plenty of loyal and loving fans. If you happen to know a GBBO fan, be extra nice to them in these uncertain future-of-bake-off times and snatch up one of these Paul and Mary approved (not really) gifts. On your marks, get set, b...uy!

B.I.Y: Bake it Yourself, $14

A cookbook is an obvious choice (and there were many books by Bake Off alumni to choose from) but if your GBBO fan is also an Apartment Therapy fan, Richard's charming play on DIY projects will hit all of their (candy) buttons.

Mary Berry Card, $3.23

If you're looking for something that says "I care enough about you to know your television viewing habits, but not buy you a gift" this card is it. Just punny enough, it'll charm even the most reserved Mary Berry fan. And if you're feeling cheeky, there are an assortment of "soggy bottom" cards available as well.

Wanker Mug, $13.95

This mug is perfect for the fan who is mostly invested in the occasional and oh-so-polite meltdowns on the show. Gift this to the Anglophile with an edge and you'll maybe find a little something extra *wink wink* in your tea next time.

Dearle Seaweed Apron, $20.75

A beautiful John Henry Dearle pattern (very British) from the Victoria and Albert Museum (exceedingly British) is perfect for the GBBO fan who is all stocked up on cookbooks and bundt pans.

The Fenty Blazer, $148

When given the opportunity to combine two of life's greatest joys, Sue Perkins + the holidays, take it! Velvet is easily the most festive of fabrics and this blazer helps you pay homage to the queen of puns in swinging style.

Paul Hollywood Famous Scone Mix, $3.87

Maybe you love him, maybe you hate him or maybe you find yourself with some sort of confusing mixture of the two, either way aren't you a little bit curious if the male judge can deliver the baked goods? There are a variety of Paul Hollywood bake mixes to choose from, but a good scone is an excellent place to start.

Cath Kidston 16 Piece Cutlery Set, $80

Perfect for the fan who mostly identifies with all of the florals sprinkled about the tent. This adorable Cath Kidston cutlery set is charming without being too twee, sturdy enough for everyday use and totally Victoria Sponge ready.

iTunes Gift Card, $10-200

It's basically impossible to find all episodes of all seasons of "The Great British Bake Off" for free (without breaking the law). Treat your GBBO fan to seasons 1-3 so they never have to be without their tv obsession.
