gluten free gift giving

Looking for the perfect gift for someone on your list who is gluten-free? Look no further! Here is your A-Z Gift Guide for anyone on your list!

Gluten Free Gift Giving Ideas from A to Z

Appliances

Creating a safe space that is gluten-free often requires a complete revamp of the kitchen. Appliances like toasters, blenders, and food processors often need to be replaced to ensure food safety.

Books

When learning to cook entirely gluten-free, cookbooks are an especially welcome gift. Also, informative books on celiac disease and gluten intolerance are nice to have at your fingertips.

Cutting Boards

One of the first items in the kitchen that need to be replaced are the cutting boards. Silicone, wooden, or plastic – any style works in the gluten-free kitchen. See Must-Have Kitchen Tools for a Healthy Diet.

Dough Mix

The learning curve for going gluten-free can be daunting. A gluten free bread or dessert mix can help with the overwhelm.

Egg Separator

Eggs are a common ingredient in gluten-free baking. Help make egg separating easy, with an egg separator.

Food Containers, Reusable

When switching a kitchen to gluten-free, most all plastic must be replaced including food containers. Cute containers that are not contaminated are an excellent gift.

Grocery Bags

Reusable grocery bags, especially ones that are marked for specific grocery items, can be a useful and fun gift.

Holders

To add some whimsy and a splash of color to your gift, you might consider silicone cupcake holders, cake and bread pans, casserole dishes, or a pizza stone.  

Immersion Blender

Useful for blending and whipping, an immersion blender is a must-have for the gluten-free cook!

Juicer

Going gluten-free often leads to more consumption of fruits and vegetables. An excellent way to use leftover produce is juicing!

Kitchen Scale

Gluten-free baking requires precision for texture and consistency. A good kitchen scale is an invaluable tool for success.

Lunch Box

It might be easier to pack lunches rather than to try to find a trustworthy gluten-free eat out option. An adorable lunchbox can serve as a fun reminder to pack a mid-day meal and a fun way to encourage preplanning.

Meal Planner

The key to success is often planning ahead and meal planning is no exception. A functional and fun meal planner with a fun pen is a great gift idea!

Nut Flour Chart

Cooking with new flour, especially nut flour, can be intimidating. A resource for conversions, when to substitute, etc is sure helpful.

Olive Oil

Flavored oils are a wonderful gift to give!

Periodical Magazine Subscription

Filled with recipes and gluten-free living tips, magazines are a gift that can be enjoyed all year long!

Quinoa Pasta

Putting together a basket with some of your gluten-free favorites, including quinoa pasta and gluten-free pasta sauce and a bread mix is a fun gift to give and receive.  

Recipe Cards and Holder

Friends and relatives are bound to share their favorite tried-and-true gluten-free recipes. Cute recipe cards and holders are a fun way to keep the new recipes in one place.

Subscription Box

Did you know there are gluten-free monthly subscription boxes? What a neat way to try new items.

Cooking Class

Who wouldn’t love a day away learning something new and trying yummy foods?  

Under-Counter Can Opener

A space-saving device, an under-counter can opener is sure to be helpful.

Vegetable Spiralizer

If your gluten-free gift recipient loves pasta, this is a wonderful gift idea! Replacing pasta with zucchini spirals or making curly fries are just a couple of the options for this versatile tool.

Whisk

Understated. Overused. Indispensable.

Xanthum Gum

Used as a thickener for soups, stews and gravy, learning to use xanthum gum is vital to gluten-free success.

Yogurt Maker

As snack options change, yogurt is often a go-to in gluten-free families. One of the least expensive and healthiest ways to enjoy yogurt is to make your own.

Zojirushi Bread Maker

One appliance that has to be replaced in the newly gluten-free home is the bread maker. The Zojirushi is the cadillac version and is well known to make excellent gluten-free breads.

As you can see, the options are endless for gluten-free gift giving. The list above is just a start to the helpful and useful ideas that are available. And, if these ideas aren’t enough, you could always send a box of gluten-free Snackers ;)
