A friend is getting married and I although they are not doing a gift list, I am thinking of helping the guests choose items so that the couple doesn't have a lot of doubles. What would you suggest as an essential baking equipment list? I'm thinking 1 9x13, 2 rounds, 2 loaf, etc. What would you consider essential besides those things?

I suggest a really good hand mixer. I have a KitchenAid stand mixer and I only use it about once a year (shame). I love my little KitchenAid hand-held...I use it 4-5 times a week.

I second the mixer. Everyone should have a really good mixer with all the essential attachments. What about a set of cookie cutters and chocolate molds? Maybe a sugar thermometer if she's into that sort of thing, or maybe a laser-type thermometer so it can be used for other dishes. Also cupcake liners just for variety, and also on the cheaper side of things.

I think that a blender, or at least a stick blender is a good idea, too. I use my blender for so many things in the kitchen. I know that it is not just for baking, but it is certainly something that I think a new bride/cook should have.
I also love my food processor, but often times, I can just use the blender if i am just chopping up a bit of something (onions, peppers, carrots) for a recipe. I wouldn't want to even think about making salsa without my blender, plus when I am making salad dressings or tarter sauce I use it to chop up the onions and pickles.
For me, it is indispensable ! !

IO think you should buy her a good cook book to start with. Next throw in some quailty measuring cups spoons , and baking pans. You might also want ot make her a set of your favorite recipe cards , this will personalize your gift.

This is a good list to keep in mind since my boyfriend and I are planning to get married soon. A kitchenaid mixer is DEFINITELY on my list!

I think they could also use some mixing spoons and mixing bowls, and those scraper spatulas that get all the batter out of the bowl.
Maybe a cookie sheet too and oven mitts.

You could also look for cook books for beginer with easy recipes. Just really small ones so she will not get overwhelmed.
