Valentine’s Day is fast upon us and whether you’re a supporter, hater, Galentine’s lover or simply just want to buy a present for yourself, this gift list is for you! I have to say I’m not a big fan of buying presents on Valentine’s – mainly because my boyfriend’s birthday is three days later, plus he’s also spending the day in Disneyland Paris this year, so I’m still a bit bitter…
These gifts are aimed at all the gluten free folk out there, but really they’re perfect for any foodies! I’ve covered a range of ideas from chocolate truffles, cutlery and books to DIY presents if you don’t want to spend much money. A gesture for the one you love is always nice this time of year (regardless of whether it’s Valentines or not) but buying yourself present is completely acceptable as well!
Have a read through my gift ideas below and I hope you all have a lovely day no matter who you spend it with!
Set of Four Scallop Edged Heart Teaspoons
Oliver Bonas – £22
These are the most adorable teaspoons! The rose gold finish is really current and would look so cute in your porridge bowl or stirred into your morning latte. I’m a sucker for anything rose gold and the shape of the spoon is really unique. Plus £1 goes directly to the Eve Appeal, so you’re doing your bit for charity whilst also purchasing some cute teaspoons at the same time.
Gluten is my Bitch – April Peveteaux
Amazon – £12.99
‘Gluten Is My Bitch is a brutally honest, entertaining look at what living a gluten free life entails. As an antidote to the tragic news that, no, you will never eat regular donuts again; April provides 40 gluten free comfort food recipes that will make even the most frustrated gluten intolerant smile with relief.’
We all need a bit of a laugh at ourselves sometimes and I’d absolutely love to read this book and hear about April’s take on gluten free living!
The Food Journal – by Marco Donadon
Book Depository – £9.99
This beautiful journal is perfect for you to record your experiences, experiments and love of all things gluten free. Use the journal to store notes and clippings, write down your favourite recipes, review restaurants, collect labels, coupons and other souvenirs, and record your cooking experiments.
Whether you’re on a new gluten free journey or a life-long Coeliac – having one place to record all your food experiences is a must! I end up having recipes dotted around in random notebooks or saved onto my phone, so having one beautiful keep-sake journal to store everything would be such a lovely gift.
Booja Booja Chocolate Truffles
Booja Booja – various prices
These are by far my FAVOURITE chocolate truffles. They come in various flavours such as almond and sea salt caramel, hazelnut crunch and raspberry chocolate. They also do dairy free ice-cream tubs which are beyond amazing – I would highly recommend trying out any of the Booja Booja products if you’re looking for a gluten free, dairy free and vegan treat, they’re honestly the best!
Gluten-Free Subscription Box
The Goodness Project – starting from £8.50
This is the perfect present for any foodie who loves trying out new snacks. The Goodness Project’s subscription boxes focuses on all natural, healthy snacks, inspiring you to eat well and live better. Their gluten free box is full of different healthy gluten free snacks, where you get a new selection of gluten free goodies each month.
DIY Gluten-Free Hamper
This gift idea is perfect for anyone who knows their foodie partner down to a T! You can build your own hamper specifically for them, including their favourite brands, flavours and maybe even something new they haven’t tried!
Snacks ideas – biscuits, chocolates, hot chocolate, GF beer, crisps, jam, chutney, nut butter – the possibilities are endless! Based on your budget, you can make this hamper as big or small as you want. The fact that each product has been picked out by you is the most important thing and will make for such a thoughtful gift this Valentine’s.
Homemade granola is the perfect DIY gift for any breakfast lover! Simply package it in a mason jar, then add a personalised tag to make it that extra bit special.
Handheld Milk Frother
Lakeland – £9.99
Every foodie loves a kitchen appliance. A blender or food processor may seem like the perfect big-gesture present, but what about the humble milk frother?This is such an affordable appliance, as well as being tiny so it won’t take up much room. If you or your other half love creating your own homemade lattes, then this is the perfect gift!
