For the Home Cook
3. Gift Cards (Choose your own amount): Personally, you can never go wrong with gift cards to places with great gluten free options such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or Aldi’s. Available in stores or on store websites.
4. Gluten Free Forever Magazine Subscription ($25 and up): This magazine is one of my all time favorite gluten free reads. It’s quirky, fun, and has some great recipes! Available online at the GFF Mag Website.
5. The Gluten Free Bread Machine Cookbook ($12/Kindle, $15/paperback): Get yourself acquainted with ancient art of bread making, gluten free of course, with this creative cookbook that shares 175 recipes for breads and dishes to eat with them. Available on Amazon.
For the Beauty
6. Mineral Fusion Lip Stick ($15 and up): This is one of my only cosmetic staples, as it stays on and is readily available at stores near me. I currently have Tempting and Gem. Available online at Mineral Fusion’s Website, or at stores such as Wild by Nature or Whole Foods.
For the Hostess/Host
7. Gluten Free Personalized Cutting Board by Words with Boards ($49-$169): Any good party needs a good cutting board or serving board. Flaunt your gluten free status while putting out that cheese pairing platter! Available online at Words with Boards Website.
For the Adventurer
8. Winery or Cidery Tour (Free and Up): Do a quick search around your area, or an area you’ll be traveling to, for the nearest winery or cidery where you can partake (after some questioning) in a tour and tastings. While I don’t drink much this is one of my favorite things to do on any trip because I love the mechanics of alcohol processing and distillation. Most tours will also include some sort of tasting as well, whether free or for a fee. If you live in the NY Metro Area check out Angry Orchard.
9. Gluten Free Tours (Prices Vary): Whether you are looking for a one day tour of a local city to a full all inclusive tour of a country you don’t have to stray far to find some gluten free specific options. My personal favorites are Bob and Ruth’s Gluten Free Dining and Travel Excursions for more extended all inclusive tours and NYC Gluten Free Tours with Lynn M. (110$ per person for 3 hours).
10. Amtrak Trip on the California Zephyr ($200-$500 or up if you choose not to do coach): This trip was hands down my favorite gluten free trip I’ve taken. I felt accommodated and elated while traveling from coast to coast with Amtrak, and I highly recommend this once in a life time experience! Visit Amtrak’s website to book.
