Tis the time of year for holiday gift guides! I’ve had my eye on some gluten-free related items lately, so I thought that I’d publish them in the off chance that Santa read this and has time to pick me up some things.
1. Books and cookbooks!
Over Thanksgiving, I went into Barnes and Noble and saw a huge selection of gluten free cookbooks, books about gf baking, and gf lifestyle books.
While I usually am fine with looking recipes and information up online, there were some books that really caught my eye! You don’t get gorgeous pictures on a website like the ones in Blackbird Bakery Gluten-Free: 75 recipes for Irresistable Gluten-Free Desserts and Pastries!
Although I think I would probably prefer one of the kid’s cookbooks that I saw, because the recipes are more my speed 🙂
Like Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults
Books and cookbooks make a great gift – they’re relatively cheap, easy to pack in a suitcase, and chock full of new ideas!
2. Gluten-free swag and apparel
Who doesn’t love a novelty tee? You can show your GF pride, jump off conversations, and look super-fly.

They have lots of gf tees, but this is one of my favorites:
And I love this tote:
And this one makes me laugh:
3. FOOD! The holidays can be hard for us celiacs. There are the memories of Christmases past, the temptations at every corner, and the well-meaning family members who try to force feed you.
Buy some Glutino pretzel twists, dip them in white chocolate, and slap some sprinkles on them!
Buy them a gluten free goody that they don’t usually have. Maybe it’s Udi’s Bagels or muffins, or just a tupperware full of box-mix brownies.
Or perhaps just a big ole bag of xanthan gum. MMMMMMM!
So, that’s what’s on my gluten free Christmas list. Hopefully I don’t get coal (or wheat) instead…
