I’m betting there is someone on your list who is gluten free and while I made plenty of high end suggestions on my Holiday Gift Guide, you probably want to spend less than that on a friend or neighbor. Since this diet can come with a lot of challenges, those of us who cook gluten-free and adhere to clean eating appreciate help. If done right, a gluten free gift basket in your budget can make you look like a real hero to a friend who is struggling to get this right.
What to Put In It? I was inspired by the AMAZING AND TOTALLY USED BY NOW gift bag I got from Color Garden Natural Food Dyes. They have truly naturally ingredients like Tumeric – and that’s it! It’s the ONLY food color I’d consider using. I’m hoping to whip up something nice for Christmas to share with you but be patient, my culinary skills are work in progress!
Some or all of these can go in a gift bag* for that awesome friend or relative who can no longer do gluten:
- High Quality Vanilla Extract
- Non-GMO Organic Sugar, Swerve Sweetener or Organic Coconut Palm Sugar
- Cinnamon Sticks
- All Natural Food Coloring
- Parchment Paper and Unbleached Baking Cups
- Gluten Free Flour
- Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons and Cookware
- Glass Measuring Cup
- An Apron Just for your special chef
- A Gluten Free Cookbook Your Chef Doesn’t Have Yet, like the brand new (affiliate link to follow): “Gluten-Free Entertaining: More than 100 Naturally Wheat-Free Recipes for Parties and Special Occasions“

(Seriously, I can’t do baskets. You don’t even want to know how bad they look when they’re done. A bag, some tissue paper and stick on a bow – that’s me 🙂
