Gluten Free Stocking Fillers and Secret Santa Ideas (Under £10)

A brilliant secret santa gift for coeliacs too. Order at most a couple of weeks before giving your gift, as the cakes have a shortish shelf life. Available nationwide, order online.
Tipplesworth: Minced Pie Syrup – £6.99
A festive cocktail syrup mixer, which can be used to make epic mince pie martinis! I whipped up a batch at home and everyone was impressed – the syrup is fab in both cocktails and mocktails. You can also drizzle over festive desserts to boost those Christmassy flavours. This syrup is made with lots of lovely natural ingredients, no nasty fake flavourings, and the quality shines through. Available from Ocado.
Oast to Host: Message in a Million – £7.50 (or £9.00 personalised)
This tart. I mean. So freaking good. A chocolate millionaire gluten free tart with divine pastry and a mouthwatering filling.
I rate this gluten free cook book really highly and Naomi’s pastry recipes are the best I have tried. Grab a bargain as the hardcopy book is currently available on Book People for £7.99. Naomi also has a more recent book focus on gut health, although I haven’t tried that one out yet it has been recommended to me – here’s a link in case you want to check it out.
Oast to Host: Whisky Mince Pies – £8.00
I’m not a mince pie fan but I loved these whisky gluten free mince pies from Oast to Host! They are available in prosecco and gin & tonic varieties too. You can buy online through Oast to Host’s website.
Show some creative flare with your gluten free Christmas gift by baking my decadent salted caramel swirl brownies.

I love this option as it comes with such fab presentation – a Honeybuns tin plus hessian bag with ribbon. You get six full-size gluten free cake bars in the tin, check out their website for flavour details. Order at most a couple of weeks before giving your gift, as the cakes have a shortish shelf life. Available nationwide, order online.
Gluten Free Christmas Gift Ideas £30+
A cool gift that is also suitable for dairy free coeliacs, as the ingredients included are all gluten free and dairy free. You then add in your own dairy products and Fudge Kitchen tell me it works just as well with lactose or dairy free products. The kit itself is brill – you get an apron and all the sugar ingredients and utensils needed to make fudge at home, including a sugar thermometer. At £30 it seemed pretty good value for money and much of the equipment can be used again. Available nationwide, order online or buy in store.
You might already be familiar with the spectacularly pretty biscuits that Biscuiteers produce, but did you know they offer a gluten free range too? Well they do and this gluten free biscuit tin is pretty special. Four layers of perfectly-iced festive gluten free biscuits in a beautiful Christmas tin. The work that goes into these justifies the price and I know anyone would be delighted to receive these! You can choose from all spice, chocolate or vanilla gluten free biscuits. I tried the vanilla and they were super tasty. Available nationwide, order online.
