If you know someone who has a food allergy or intolerance, chances are they care at least a little bit about food. After all, they have to be constantly conscious of what they eat. Here’s a peek at some of the best allergy friendly gifts for the foodies on your list.
Kitchen Gadgets and Accessories
- Garlic press, veggie chopper, food processor…those little gadgets that make food prep go faster
- A spiralizer. This is on my list this year.
- A new set of wooden spoons. If your loved one has recently discovered allergies, they may be replacing some of their kitchen essentials that have been contaminated. And how cute are these with the colorful handles?
- An immersion blender. You know I love mine.
- Medium scoop – I use these for so much more than just cookies or ice cream! Muffins, bean burgers, meatballs, you name it!
- Instant Pot or other pressure cooker. I haven’t tried one of these yet, but they’re super popular this year.
- A few good knives or a new cutting board
- A stylish new apron – from the superhero to the funny to the pretty, you have lots of choices
- Pretty but functional hand towels (I like these from Grove, and you can get $10 off your first order by signing up here, which will get you a two-pack of towels for free!)
- A new pan or pot – maybe they’ve been eyeing a Le Creuset dutch oven or a ceramic griddle. Quality cookware can be expensive! Buy them a piece, or give them money toward the purchase of one.
- USA Pans. Of course. My favorites are the muffin pans and the half sheet pan, but there are plenty of safe non-stick options to choose from.
Ebooks, Courses, and Cookbooks
- Kitchen Stewardship Kids Cook Real Food course – okay, enrollment for this one is currently closed, but I use this as an example. If your loved one has a kitchen skill they’d like to master, chances are there’s a course that teaches them!
- Oat Flour Muffins: Gluten Free Baking the Simple Way. Of course.
- The Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook. One of my favorites!
- 100 Days Fast and Fabulous Cookbook. Find out more about this one here.
- A cookbook tailored to their specific needs. From nut-free to dairy-free to whatever you need, there’s probably a cookbook for that.
- A local cooking class, wine and painting night, or other food-related experience gift
Special Treats or Ingredients They Use All. The. Time.
- Allergen free chocolate
- Coffee (or tea, if that’s their preference)
- A bulk meat purchase, like 40 pounds of chicken from Zaycon
- A grocery store gift card
- A jar of coconut oil
- A case of their favorite flavor of Larabars
- A CSA share for a few months
- An experience gift: go to a local U-pick farm together and enjoy the day gathering your own food!
Funny or Useful Food-Related Decor or Clothing
Okay, this one may be more specific to the recipient. If you know they’ll find something funny, go for a humorous gift. If they do actually need to label food or clothing or their house, find something that is both functional and cute!
- No Nuts (Food or Otherwise) sign
- Egg Replacement poster
- Gluten Free Kitchen sign
- Cheery Gluten Free Kitchen (or other food description) sign
- I Mustache You Not To Give Me Peanuts shirt
- Peanuts Are Not My Jam shirt
