Tech Gifts for the Celiac
Nima Sensor – A portable device that can detect gluten in your food! Whether they are a foodie or like to travel, Nima can help your friend or family member feel more comfortable eating out. Personally, I always keep mine in my purse just in case I need it. Know someone who already has a Nima Sensor? Try gifting them a pack of Nima Testing Capsules instead!
Veggie Spiralizer – Spiralizing vegetables is a great alternative to gluten free pastas. and this tool lets you make noodles out of just about any vegetable. I absolutely love mine, and the Paderno model currently has 4.5 stars and almost 10,000 reviews on Amazon! It’s easy to clean, comes with multiple blades, and is also BPA free.
FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing System – Don’t let food go to waste, use a Foodsaver to portion and freeze with ease! I have the FM2110 model and have saved so much money by using it. Just portion out your food or meat, then seal and freeze for later use! Trust me, your friend or family member will definitely thank you for this.
Instant Pot – Want to cook soup in 30 minutes or less and not have to babysit it? This pressure cooker lets you cook up to 70% faster than conventional methods. I have the 6-quart, which is perfect for families or if you want leftovers. For those who like smaller food batches for just 1-2 people, try the 3-quart.
Digital Kitchen Scale – A lot of gluten free baking is done by weight, since gluten free all-purpose flours and baking flours aren’t all created equal. Help your fellow bakers with their gluten free recipes by gifting a digital kitchen scale.
Iron Skillet – The pan that is perfect for cooking anything and everything. Use it to sear something on the stove, then place the whole skillet in the oven to finish without transferring pans. These things are very hardy and last a very long time.
Donut Pan – Perfect for baking gluten free donuts with ease.
Subscription Services and Gift Boxes
Thrive Market Membership – Help your friend or family member find great gluten free and organic products with an online membership to Thrive Market!

Her story can make anyone struggling with Celiac much more comfortable with their symptoms, especially when knowing someone else out there has gone through the same symptoms as you. She also recently wrote a cookbook!
The Food Lab – There’s a reason why this book is a New York Times Bestseller. It’s for the food science obsessed, and perfect for all skill levels.
