Being gluten-free is not just a diet but rather a part of someone’s identity. When you follow a gluten-free diet, you have to focus on being gluten-free every time you eat – which is often! You might even say that people following a gluten-free diet are perhaps a little obsessed with being gluten-free. I know I am.
So if you want to give your gluten-free friend a fun, exciting and thoughtful gift this holiday season, consider giving him or her a gift related to the gluten-free diet. Trust me, he or she will love the gesture
I’ve got you covered! I’ve come up with this ultimate gluten-free gift list that includes a variety of gift ideas perfect for your gluten-free friend.
The Ultimate Gluten-Free Gift List
The ultimate gluten-free gift list includes ideas for all your friends. You know him or her best – so pick a gift that is best suited for their personality and interest. Good luck!
Red Apple Lipstick: Your friend might develop an addiction to anything from Red Apple Lipstick. This company makes gorgeous lipsticks and high quality beauty products that are ALL certified gluten-free. I love the gluten-free lipsticks and moisturizing mascara the most – but you’ll find everything your friend could ever want. You can also buy her a giftcard and let her decide for herself.
Nima Sensor: I promise you, your friend is dying to get his or her hands on a Nima Sensor. This cool gadget allows someone to test their food for gluten. It’s so awesome – I can’t live without mine. You can get her a Nima Sensor Starter Kit at www.NimaSensor.com. Use my partner coupon code, GOODFORYOU, to get 10% off too – score!
Food Sensitivity Test
If your gluten-free friend is still suffering from digestive distress or chronic pain, she might welcome the opportunity to test herself for food sensitivities. I know when I did the at-home food sensitivity test on myself, I learned that I had a moderate sensitivity to almonds. I eliminated almonds and felt better almost instantly. A food sensitivity test is truly the gift of health that will help your friend feel his or her best self in the new year.
To purchase an at-home food sensitivity test (she can do it in five minutes at home and then send her blood sample back to the company), visit Everlywell.com. Use my partner coupon code, GFJENNY, for 10 percent off too. They’ll send you a test kit, you’ll give it to your friend to complete and return. Read more about my Everlywell food sensitivity test in this post or purchase the test here.
Magic Bullet Dessert Bullet
I am in love with my Magic Bullet Dessert Bullet. I’m not kidding you! Any tool that can turn frozen fruit into a decadent and delicious dessert has my vote. Your friend will absolutely LOVE making homemade sorbet with her Magic Dessert Bullet. When I use my Magic Dessert Bullet and show my guests how easy it is to use, almost every single one of them goes out and buys one herself. Get this for your friend. She will adore you almost as much as she adores her new favorite homemade desserts!
Flirty Aprons offers adorable and stylish aprons your gluten-free friend will love (and so will you – go ahead and buy one for yourself!). Don’t settle for cheap kitchen aprons you find in the store – get her one she is going to love love love!! Visit Flirty Aprons online for the latest selection. Oh, and you can also personalize an apron with your friend’s name on it making this a perfect item to include on this ultimate gluten-free gift list!
Give the gift of food sampling by subscribing your friend to a monthly gluten-free sampling box that is delivered straight to her doorstep each month. Urthbox is a subscription box company I recommend and the company offers a gluten-free option. Your friend will get a box filled to the rim with gluten-free samples for him to try each month. This is definitely a gift that keeps on giving well beyond the holidays!
Thrive Market Membership
Help your gluten-free friend find the latest and greatest gluten-free brands at Thrive Market, an online membership shopping site touted as a place where Whole Foods meets Costco. The selection of gluten-free foods is unreal, and membership is required if your friend wants to shop there. An annual membership is about $60 and it’s truly the gift that keeps on giving!
Finding cooking inspiration is very important to those of us following a gluten-free diet. A great gift is to stock our bookshelves with gluten-free cookbooks for all occasions. A few gluten-free cookbooks I recommend include:
- The How Can It Be Gluten-Free Cookbook by America’s Test Kitchen
- Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations: A Year of Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes for Every Occasion
- Gluten-Free on a Shoestring: 125 Easy Recipes for Eating Well on the Cheap
- The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam
- Pure Delicious: More than 150 Delectable Allergen-Free Recipes by Heather Christo
- Gluten-Free 101: The Essential Beginner’s Guide to Easy Gluten-Free Cooking by Carol Fenster
No gluten-free gift list would be complete with offering a few ideas for amazing stocking stuffers. I know many gluten- people love cooking and having fun gadgets to play with in the kitchen. Consider giving your gluten-free friend some fun new kitchen tools in their stocking this year (or buy a bunch of these items and put them in a gift basket). Here are some of my favorites kitchen gadgets:
- Toss and Chop Salad Tongs ($21 on Amazon)
- Pineapple Corer ($12 on Amazon)
- Vegetable and Fruit Chopper ($22 on Amazon)
- Bagel and Donut Pan ($9 on Amazon)
- Chef’s Knife ($93 on Amazon)
- Food Kitchen Scale with Removable Bowl ($20 on Amazon)
Us gluten-free folk miss our bread… but you can make life easier for your friend by getting him this Cuisinart Bread Maker. This particular bread machine has a gluten-free setting and includes a ton of recipes for gluten-free breads. Your friend will absolutely LOVE this gift, especially if he misses bread like the rest of us! This was a no-brainer inclusion for this ultimate gluten-free gift list as I know every gluten-free person would love to have one!
Does your friend enjoy trying to recipes? Perhaps she clips recipes from magazines and/or prints them from the Internet? If so, give her a recipe binder to neatly organize all of her gluten-free recipes. There are SO many cute recipe binders available. Check out this page to see some gorgeous styles available on Amazon. This is going to be one thoughtful and beautiful gift your friend will treasure forever.
Food Storage Containers
Gluten-free home chefs always have a variety of gluten-free flours on hand. In fact, in my pantry, I have at least 10 different gluten-free flours and starches. Help your friend protect her gluten-free flours and get organized with these air-tight food storage containers by Oxo. I have a ton of these – and use them all the time to store my gluten-free flours. She will love them too – I assure you – and she is probably too cheap to buy them for herself so she will welcome your awesome gesture!
I Know It’s Extra T-Shirt
Your gluten-free friend will get a chuckle out of this t-shirt that says exactly how she feels when she eats out for dinner. Everything gluten-free is extra – and she can wear this t-shirt with pride as her servers tell her the same words verbatim. You can get this clever tshirt on Etsy while supplies last.
The Gift of Fashion
OK, so this next gift idea has nothing to do with being gluten-free and everything to do with being fashionable. You could give your friend the gift of StitchFix. I have been using StitchFix on and off for several years – I’m on “fix” #19. I don’t have a lot of time to shop and I love to have new things in my wardrobe, so I love getting styled by StitchFix. You simply fill in a style questionnaire and they will send you five items each month that you can try on and decide to keep or return. It’s super easy and I feel like there’s always something in my “fix” that I love and wear often. Fixes are available for men and women of ALL sizes!
To join StitchFix, visit www.StitchFix.com and get started filling out your profile. Or to purchase it as a gift for a friend, send your friend a gift card for a free styling for $20 – and you can either print, email or mail the gift card to him/her. Sweet!
Reusable Shopping Bags
I absolutely love my Rume Reusable Shopping Bags. Why? They are huge, fold down neatly, and last forever. I’m not kidding! I have collected so many reusable bags over the years, yet my Rume bags are the only ones I use time and time again. I even get compliments at the grocery store for my bags! I highly recommend you get your friend 2-3 Rume large bags. They hold a ton of groceries and come in so many cute styles and colors. Get them at www.MyRume.com.
There you have it – my ultimate gluten-free gift list for the holidays and year-round.
