5 easy ways to DIY the perfect gluten free Christmas hamper

When it comes to giving a gluten-free person a great gift, it can be hard to find something that they will like. Staying clear of some of the most popular type of presents makes it tricky to come up with ideas, especially for those who are not naturally good at shopping for presents for other people. Giving someone a hamper at Christmas is a good way to give them a selection of their favourite things but if that person is gluten free, it is vital to ensure that everything inside the festive basket can be enjoyed.
This means that it is important to do a bit of research before buying anything and looking at the ingredients is a good idea, and anything that is gluten free will be advertised as such, so look at the labels before buying. Tasty gluten free hampers for Christmas are fairly easy to put together once a few gluten free items have been identified and while some people will choose to put their own hamper together; others will prefer to use a company that specialises in Christmas hampers to put together a special gluten free basket.

Whichever way appeals, here are five things to put inside a gluten free hamper this Christmas:
  1. Candles
One of the easiest ways to give someone who follows a gluten free diet something nice is to avoid giving them anything food-related. Scented candles can be put into a nice hamper at Christmas and given as a gift and they can come with different smells, in a variety of colours and all kinds of sizes and shapes.
  1. Toiletries

Another great gift to give a gluten free person is some toiletries, including:
  • Aftershave
  • Perfume
  • Moisturiser
  • Bubble bath
  • Face creams
  • Soaps
These can come as a mixture of items in one basket and they make for the perfect gift for anyone who likes to pamper themselves.

  1. Alcohol
Not all alcohol is gluten free, so it is important to do some research first.

Below are a few examples of alcohol that doesn’t contact gluten:
  • Vodka
  • Gin
  • Rum
  • Tequila
Important: However, it is important to note that some flavoured alcohol will contain gluten and lots of alcohol contains wheat, so it is vital to check out which bottles are safe for someone on a gluten free diet.

  1. Fruit & Flowers
Another great way to buy someone a present that doesn’t contain gluten is to buy Christmas gift baskets from www.thebasketpeople.com.au filled with fruit and flowers.

  1. Gluten Free Food
Of course, the easiest way to buy a gluten free dieter something that they can eat is to buy specialist gluten free food and this can be done by checking out labels or shopping online in a dedicated gluten free section of a website.

Many people now follow a gluten free diet for a number of reasons and as such, putting a hamper together for a gluten free person this festive season is easier than ever before.
