Last year I made a list of some great gluten free gifts, including cookbooks, t-shirts, and chocolate-dipped pretzels.
This year I have a few more suggestions of things to buy for someone gluten free in your life, or things to ask for yourself.
If I didn’t already have one, this would be top on my list. It makes the most delicious gluten free bread that I’ve ever had, and even non-gluten free people say that it’s so good they could easily substitute it for their “normal” bread.
My breadmaker has a gluten free setting, but most of the mixes that I’ve seen say that you shouldn’t use it. So, I don’t think it’s completely necessary.
I have this Breadmaker one:
Add on a couple of Pamela’s bread mixes, and you’re all set!
2. Magazine Subscription
A subscription to Delight, Gluten-free Living, or Living Without is on my list this year. Even though there are so many resources and recipes online, it’s way more fun to get nice glossy magazine in the mail. Plus they’re inexpensive and easy to buy.
3. CSA Box
A CSA box is a great way to experiment with new ingredients in a healthy way. It’s also a great way to share with friends and family and support local farms. Find one near you here, or if you’re in DC I recommend Green Grocer.
4. Chocolate dipped potato chips
Last year I recommended chocolate-dipped pretzels, but these are just as good, if not better. They’re so simple to make and are great to have around during the holidays as a treat.
5. This shirt – Eat like a tiger. Go gluten free.
Or, if your “special someone” is gluten free, try one of these “My celiac girl/guy is hot” shirts.
