It brings people together and it’s the backbone of most social gatherings. It’s a necessity of life. It’s a form of comfort. No wonder why people want to gift it so badly.
There is nothing more heartwarming than the gift of pies, cookies, casseroles, that were handmade by loved ones. However, when your loved ones have dietary restrictions, giving the gift of food can be difficult.
Despite it being difficult, giving the gift of food to your food-sensitive friends that they actually can eat is perhaps the best gift you could give them. Not only does it show them that you know and care about their dietary needs, but it shows them that you’re in their corner. Something that people with dietary restrictions need to be reminded. Especially because being gluten-free in a gluten-filled world can feel lonely.
It’s my goal to inspire you and to make giving your loved-ones homemade gifts easier.
