Well it’s time to get merry and get into the Christmas spirit. Buying gifts for the low carb keto lover in your life can be a challenge. But it doesn’t have to be. Here are my top five ideas for gifts for the low carb keto lover in your life. Plus, all gifts are under $30 so kind to your budget too.
I am a big fan of Elise and her Keto-Bites cookies. There are lots of keto cookies out there, but not like these. KETO-BITES cookies are crisp and crunchy and as a bonus, they’re mini (more than 10 cookies in a bag) and portion controlled already! At less than 1g net carb your low carb keto lover will be thrilled to receive a gift of Keto-Bites cookies.
There are seven flavours so it makes sense to buy the sampler pack for the low carb keto lover in your life. At $21.99 it’s great value. The cookies come in a cute green presentation box, so you could wrap or simply add red ribbon and a card to get your Christmas on. A great hostess gift too as it’s something your low carb keto loving hostess can pop in the cupboard and grab a single packet for her bag as she heads out the door to the January sales.
MELINDA’S GFG KETO SEED CRACKERS HAMPER
So this is a super cute gift idea for the low carb keto lover foodie in your life, and you get to add your own personal touch too. Go grab a pack of Melinda’s Gluten Free Goodies low carb Seed Crackers. It’s a scrumptious blend of sunflower, flax, sesame and chia seeds. Now your low carb keto lover can make their own seed crackers fresh from the oven. I did a review on the seed crackers back here so I can attest first hand to their yumminess. At about $6 a pack it’s a clear winner in the budget stakes too.
I would add some goats cheese and relish, or a trio of bottled dips or even a selection of sugar free nut butters to create a keto custom hamper gift. Source great cheeses at a relatively low cost from Aldi or go upscale from your favourite deli. Either way your low carb keto lover will have a tasty new years eve treat to go with their keto cocktails come December 31.
Prefer something you can post, that doesn’t need refrigeration? Well then grab the two other lower carbs stars from Melinda’s Gluten Free Goodies. The lower carb muffin mix (around $9.10) and lower carb pancake waffle mix ($5.95) are just wonderful. I have done reviews on both, pancakes here and muffins here.
MINI WAFFLE MAKER
Every keto queen worth her pink salt knows that low carb waffles are a thing called chaffles. This egg and mozzarella mix makes exceedingly low carb waffles, and the best kind of waffle maker for chaffles is a mini one. So if your low carb lover does not own a wee mini waffle maker, then that’s a perfect gift.
Starting from as little as $18 on ebay this gift is sure to be a hit with the low carb keto lover in your life. Pair it with Melinda’s Lower Carb Pancake and Waffle mix and some sugar free maple syrup to complete the gift.
LITTLE ZEBRA CHOCOLATES
Would it even be Christmas without chocolate … I don’t think so! My go to keto safe chocolate is the Australian made Little Zebra Chocolates. My favourites are the Tahitian Lime and the Orange Buds. There are many flavours to choose from so there is bound to be something that will satisfy your little low carb keto lover.
Pop a couple of bars of Little Zebra Chocolates together with some boutique brand coffee and BOOM! a wonderful, useful and satisfying low carb keto gift is born.
KETO GRANOLA DIY BASKET
The final idea for your low carb keto lover is a gift basket full of ingredients to make low carb keto granola. Grab up all the ingredients from your local grocers, repurpose a box or grab a basket from Kmart, this one is $3.50 and a perfect size, then print out this recipe and include it in the basket.
If you prefer, you could make the granola and then package it up in preserving jars ($5 for six from, yes you guessed it, Kmart) for a cute country vibe. Print out and include the recipe in your card as your low carb keto lover will want to know the ingredients. Granola is a perfect holiday brunch treat paired with blackberries and greek yogurt.
So that’s my top five gifts under $30 for the low carb keto lover in your life. Now all that is left to do is wish you a very merry Christmas, a happy holiday season and a wonderful 2021. Thanks for your love and support during 2020, a year we could have done without.
As always I hope this helps you along your own low carb keto pathway. Just remember, I’m sharing my story and learnings to add value to your journey. Said with love, kindness and zero judgement. Hope to see you over on Facebook during the hols, big squeeze, love Le xox
