Get grown up stuff not kids!
Amazon has all sorts but a set of silicone utensils, scales, cake tins, and silicone baking sheets (they come in good colours) is a good start.
I bought DS (now 12) Leiths cookery Bible (I think that's what it's called) last Christmas and he can follow it and will use it for decades.

Would you consider a bakedin subscription. You get a box with a recipe card and most of the ingredients in it. There is a website where you can get tips, and they release a video showing you how to do the bake . On the website you can order some of their kits.

I second what @Girlwhowearsglasses says, get grown up stuff - it will last so much longer.

My 11yo loves baking - she just uses our ordinary household baking things. Have never heard of a baking set for kids, except for really little kids.

Just buy stuff from Lakeland or similar online - it'll last her through her teens. If you don't bake I suggest these basics:

Mixing bowl
Measuring spoons
Various tins
Tin liners / baking paper
Wooden spoon

Thankyou for all your help, I don’t bake and have never baked so we literally have nothing so Thankyou for the lists and also recommending silicone baking things.
I will also have a look at the baking subscription box, I think my dd would love that!
Thanks all.

I'm looking at this one for dd. It all looks good quality bakeware and present wise looks nice for a child to receive.

Definitely a Bakedin subscription - my ten year old has had it for a year and it's brilliant. She can do just about all of it on her own, but it's not too simple - and they give you the ingredient quantities so you can make it again, as well as providing the weighed out ingredients for the first time you bake it.
