Making a Gluten Free Gift Baskets for the Holidays

2 comments
Chanukah is mid-way through, so that means you probably dealt out your Chanukah gelt to all of your Jewish friends and now Christmas is nearing and you are probably thinking "Oh my gosh, Christmas is just around the corner and my friend has Celiac Disease so I can't give my standard gift basket of cookies and treats"

Well, don't fret because Winners and Home Sense has a pretty good selection of gluten free goodies that can be made into a gift basket.  In fact, it is a pretty unique selection of goodies that you do not always find everywhere in Edmonton.

So if you are in a bind, here are a couple gluten free gift basket tips and ideas:
  1. Go to your closest Winners/HomeSense.
  2. Go to the gourmet food section, and you will find a good selection of gluten free mixes, salty snacks, and sweet snacks.
  3. Idea 1:
    • Pick out a couple gluten free cupcake or gluten free cake mixes (About $5 each)
    • Pick out one already made cookie package (About $3-5)
    • Go to the kitchen utensils and buy a spatula and maybe a baking dish or cupcake tin (About $15)
    • Go to Dollarama and find a good size basket, stuffing paper and wrapping paper (About $4 total)
    • Now you have a great gluten free baking gift basket at around $30
  4. Idea 2:
    • Pick out a gluten free salty snacks (Maybe two) (Chips $5-7)
    • Pick out a DVD movie at Winners (Under $10)
    • Go to Sherbrooke Liqour and pick up a 4 pack of gluten free beer (About $14)
    • Go to Dollarama and find a good size basket, stuffing paper and wrapping paper (About $4 total)
    • Now you have a great gluten free movie night basket at around $40
Have a great holiday season!
