Homemade Gluten Free Christmas Food Gifts
Wish someone happy holidays with homemade gluten free Christmas food gifts!
If you plan to give delicious food gifts to loved ones, but you don't want to cook twice, once for regular diets and again for gluten-free diets, then this gift guide is what you need to fill your holiday season with good cheer!
Gluten Free Christmas Food Gifts for Shipping Far & Near
The best homemade gluten free Christmas food gifts for shipping are those treats that get better with age, such as candies, fruitcake, gingerbread cookies, Pfeffernusse, and vanilla extract.
Choose holidays treats that keep well, need no refrigeration and hold their shape while in transport.
Allow a minimum of 6 weeks shipping for gifts to be received in time for Christmas day; 8 weeks is better.
This means homemade food gifts need to be cooked, packaged and on their way by the middle of November at the latest.
For gifts shipped across distance in your homeland, allow at least 1 week shipping time early in the season; 2 weeks is better.
Plan to have homemade food gifts cooked, packaged and shipped by the last week of November or the first week in December.
For gluten-free food gifts to be shipped closer by, across town or to the next county, allow at least 1 week shipping time or up to 10 days, if shipped 2 weeks or less before Christmas day.
Don't have time to cook homemade specialties?Send a gluten free gift basket instead, or purchase a subscription to gluten free food boxes, the gift that keeps on giving all year long.
Are you looking for a hostess gift or do you need a thank you gift that says, "I care"?Homemade gluten free Christmas food gifts are the perfect present for giving in person.
Choose a holiday dessert that fits the event and your host's or hostess's tastes; try
Peppermint Candy Cheesecake,
Vermont Maple Gingerbread,
Cranberry Apple Pie,
Peppermint Chocolate Cake
Quick and Easy Fruit Cake.
Be prepared for the unexpected.
You never know who might show up at your door for a pleasant visit.
Perhaps you fogot to add a special someone to your gift list.
It happens to everyone at some point during the holidays.
Make ahead and freeze homemade gluten free Christmas food gifts, just in case.
Then, when the unexpected happens, you can pull from the freezer and give a cake, pie, tea bread loaf or a box filled with cookies or candy.
If you don't have time to bake and you enjoy crafts, layer dry gluten-free cookie ingredients in a quart size mason jar, decorate it and attach a recipe card.
Cookies-in-a-Jar gifts are suitable for all holiday gifting and when carefully packaged they ship well, too.
Who doesn't love eating scrumptious sweets, especially when they are gluten-free homemade?
Wishing you all a deliciously wonderful holiday season!
