Grab yourself a well-earned cuppa tea and enjoy this Gluten Free Christmas Gifts Guide for 2020. This year is obviously focused on the best gifts to get delivered by post due to the current climate so you can give wisely and safely.
Disclaimer: I did not get paid or bribed or kidnapped and held ransom to write any of this, these are all gifts I genuinely would like for myself and, where mentioned, I’ve purchased in the past anyway therefore in many cases I’m speaking from experience and am confident these will make excellent Festive Gifts this year! If a product has been gifted to me, I mention it in the description for full transparency (heads up, it’s the Beerhunter Calendar and the Ombar Chocolate) but neither brands asked for a post or social media coverage.
To make things simpler I’ve added quick links below if you have a particular gift idea in mind already. Just click on the gift guide subcategories and zoom straight to that section in this, my Top Christmas Gift Guide for Gluten Free Inspiration.

Who would benefit from these Gluten Free Christmas Gift Ideas 2020?
If you and not gluten free yourself and are asking the question: What do you buy for a gluten free person? Then this will hopefully go a long way towards answering that question. As you can see from the subcategories mentioned above, I have tried to cover all tastes and personalities. Whether the gift receiver likes to bake for themselves or not, whether they have additional dietary needs (many gluten free people are also intolerant to dairy for example) and hopefully I have included something to suit everyone’s budget. I have also stuck to gifts that can be ordered online for home delivery as the obvious trend this year will be home delivered Christmas Gifts.
What can I put in a gluten free gift basket?
These next ideas are ideal as a single gift if your budget is quite tight or great to add to a ‘make your own’ gluten free gift basket or hamper;
Gluten Free Gift Basket examples (check all labels for gluten free certification)

Gluten Free Experiences

Please note that all allergies and dietary requirement catered for to a high standard on request.
Gluten Free Afternoon Tea – (from £20.00pp)
I’ve been recommended a few venues across the country with the help from Glutarama readers that offer delicious Gluten Free Afternoon Teas. There’s something to suit most budgets and gift vouchers that you can buy in advance so the experience can take place at a time when it suits and is safe to do so.
The website AfternoonTea.co.uk is an awesome resource for finding Afternoon Teas and each region has a gluten free and vegan filter so if you are dairy and egg free too this will come in handy. Venues include the top London hotels such as The Ritz and The Savoy and smaller venues both in London and across the UK. (Please feel free to add venues you are aware of in the comments section, no matter how big or small).
Indigo at the One Aldwich has come highly recommended and is awarded with Coeliac UK’s Gluten Free Accreditation.
The Assembly House in Norwich also came highly recommended for it’s gluten free afternoon teas. They are also offering a Cakeaway Service at the moment given the current circumstances which is a fantastic idea for locals to the area – personally I’d be happy to drive a distance for this!
The final tea I’ll mention is Tynley Hall Hotel who also got mentioned a couple of times when I asked for recommendations, once again gluten free and dietary requirements are catered for with no fuss.
Gluten Free Online Gift Cards
Gift cards are the perfect gift idea if you have someone who is difficult to buy for, but you want to go that little bit further in terms of thinking about their likes and wishes. In addition to the Afternoon Tea Gift Cards mentioned above, these brands also offer Gluten Free Gift Cards to use in their online stores. In most cases, you can determine how much you load the gift card up by. Prices commonly start at a minimum of £10.
