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.
1. Recipe Books
For something special Good without Gluten
For something practical Taste.com Gluten Free
For 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.
2. Kitchen Help If you have friends or family just starting their gluten free journey then here are a couple of things I have found extremely useful…
Breville Crepe Maker and Stick Blender
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.
