 Do you have someone in your life who is impossible to shop for AND gluten free?

Maybe you’ve found a special someone on GlutenfreeSingles and hope to make this a very meaningful Christmas or Hanukkah. Whatever your reason, you are in need of some Christmas or holiday gluten-free gift ideas. You’re in luck, because we have five great ideas that are sure to satisfy even the pickiest gluten-free person in your life!

Gluten-Free Gift Basket

Who doesn’t love a gift basket? Most standard gift baskets are filled with cookies, brownies and other goodies that would send someone with celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity rushing to the toilet. Fortunately, retailers are getting wise, and some of them now offer gluten-free gift baskets. These gift-baskets include anything from cookies and candies to coffee, nuts or hot sauces. Take a look at a few of the retailers below that offer gluten-free gift baskets:

 

Nutritional Consultation

If you or a special someone are struggling with the gluten-free lifestyle, it could be helpful to see a nutritionists or dietician to discuss how to better incorporate a gluten-free diet. A knowledgeable and experienced nutritionist or dietician can help you create a food plan, work with you on overcoming psychological food issues, help you lose weight and more. Google nutritionists in your area or in the location where the recipient of your gift lives. You may also want to look on Yelp or Angie’s List for a highly-rated professional. Do your homework. Make sure the nutritionist or dietician is comfortable working with a gluten-free client and that he or she has received favorable reviews from previous clients.

Magazine Subscription

There are several quality magazines written specifically for the gluten-free community. These magazines include informational articles, advice and news updates of importance to those who are gluten free. These magazine subscriptions are also relatively low cost, making them a great option if you are on a budget. Here are three of our favorite gluten-free magazines:

Gluten-Free Apps

We’ve written in the past about several great gluten-free apps that can help individuals lead a better gluten-free life. These apps can help you shop for gluten-free groceries, find gluten-friendly restaurants and even communicate your food needs effectively when overseas. As an added bonus, these apps are either free or relatively cheap. They can make a great gift on a budget.

Charitable Donation

If your gluten-free loved one is a philanthropist at heart, then consider something a little different this holidays season. Make a charitable donation on their behalf to an organization that advocates on behalf of those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Some suggestions include the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness or the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America. Donating to an organization like these allows you to spend what is comfortable for your budget, and it can leave your loved one with a warm and fuzzy feeling.
