A gift card is probably your best bet for hobby specific tools/goods. For someone who is very much into cooking (or any hobby really) and the tools surrounding it, receiving tools that aren't what you'd have chosen can be very frustrating, especially if they are expensive ones. For example, I'm very much into my kitchen knives, but specifically Japanese blades. An in-law had plans to get us a big fancy German knife set for our wedding, but luckily was talked out of it. I'd probably have just returned them, as even as nice as some German knives can be, I don't like the blade geometries and would only have been frustrated with them.
That said, if you also understand the hobby and know what, if any, holes they have, you might be able to get away with something. For example if the baker is into pastry, maybe they need a marble pastry board, which can be a little more of a luxury item. Or a big end-grain cutting board.

I bought crème de violette and maraschino. Now I need to find a gin I like so I can make aviations, but also now I want to buy all of the things and start having cocktail parties because I don’t actually like drinking that much any more.

I was gonna say, give Barr Hill a shot if youre not into traditional dry or floral gins, but it's from the US and idk if you can find that one in Taiwan.
Australia has a huge gin industry which exports a lot to SE Asia, so if you can find Aussie gins I can advise.
