Gluten-free Gift Guide
The holiday season is already in full swing, which means time is quickly ticking down to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. While gift giving can be fun, it’s also sometimes overwhelming, especially when your loved ones all have different preferences and needs. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of thoughtful gift ideas for all the gluten-free people in your life.
There’s no shortage when it comes to top notch cookbooks that cater to gluten-free diets. Whether your loved one is eager to bake gluten-free bread, sweet treats, or try their hand at Thai or Indian cuisine, there’s definitely a cookbook out there to satisfy any culinary desire. Nom Nom Paleo and Against the Grain are two highly regarded cookbooks that offer a variety of tasty gluten-free recipes.
Gluten-free Edible Gifts
Sometimes the easiest way to celebrate the holidays is with food. From traditional fruit towers to gluten-free sweet gift boxes, there are plenty of edible options for the gluten-free people you love. Try this Gluten-Free Sweets Gift Box by Williams Sonoma or a classic pear, apple, and cheese arrangement from Harry & David to make someone’s special holiday gluten-free and delicious.
For the creative, gluten-free chefs in your life, consider purchasing a spiralizer to fulfill all their homemade noodle dreams. While there’s a large variety of gluten-free pastas on grocery store shelves, spiralized vegetables—from zucchini to sweet potatoes—are healthy alternatives to pasta, not to mention fun to make, especially with kids.
For many gluten-free individuals, finding delicious gluten-free bread is not an easy feat. Why not give your favorite gluten-free person a gift that keeps giving: fresh, warm loaves of gluten-free bread made in their very own bread machine! With a plethora of gluten-free bread mixes available, making homemade bread is easy to do in a home kitchen.
People with food allergies and intolerances are well-aware of how important it is to carry emergency snacks with them at all times. So that they can keep perishable foods chilled during the day in case unexpected hunger strikes, invest in a good-quality lunchbox for someone you love.
The Internet is ever-reaching with unique graphic T-shirts, including—yep, you guessed it—gluten-free T-shirts. A quick Amazon search will turn up some interesting finds, but our all time favorite clothing line for gluten-free folks is Celiac Cutie. They have a wonderful combination of witty and empowering shirts.

Gluten-free Magazine Subscription
Why a magazine instead of a cookbook? Well, both are great. But often times gluten-free magazines will offer more information about living a gluten-free life outside of the kitchen. There are a lot of fantastic gluten-free magazines out there that offer delicious recipes, inspiring stories, and great travel tips. A few of our favorites include: Simply Gluten-free, Allergic Living, and of course, the ever gorgeous GFF Magazine.
