A Special Present for Christmas

Last year I wrote about gluten free food related gift ideas and stocking fillers.  I had satisfied myself that you can find a gluten free food gift at Christmas and I hope that I have also given others some ideas. So with my second blogging Christmas fast approaching I have put my thoughts toward other gift ideas for those with coeliac disease.

cook bookFor something personal : if your gf son or daughter is ready to leave home then make up your own cookbook with your tried and tested gluten free recipes.  I made a recipe book last year for my gf son which is filled with all the practical recipes I know he will use and make when he leaves home.  A copy sits on my kitchen bench and is used many many times during the week for flat breads, wraps, bread rolls, granola, pancakes. And it also includes recipe bases for spaghetti bolognese, lasagne, risottos.

3. Gluten Free Box

Australian Gluten Free Life who publish a monthly magazine have launched their “The Box” :a box of gluten free goodies delivered to your door on a monthly basis.  Looks interesting as I see this ‘surprise box’  concept is popular in other parts of the world. This is a great way to try new products that you might necessarily and readily have access to.

4.. Ready to Make

If you yourself are not a gluten free-er, then you can still put together a package with a recipe card and a few pantry ingredients for the recipe.  Remember, it is the thought that counts and  the fact that you have put a little thought and time makes this gift special. Choose recipes that will only require the addition of a few  ingredients on top of the ones that you have put in the gift.
