I am not gluten-free, but I have some sensitivities and intolerances so I’m always interested in gluten-free items. Gluten-free foods tend to be so dry. Every diet should be able to have a fun treat and I think these options may be a strong alternative
Brownie Point’s Gluten-Free Baby Brownies Dozen Gift Box
6 Gluten-Free Chocolate Fudge Brownies, 6 Gluten-Free Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt Brownies
$44, free shipping
Are these just like mini flourless cakes? I feel like brownies should be somewhat easy to do flourless or just use an alternative flower. I think the presentation is very attractive for a gift. I do wish there was a bit more variety in the flavors but the cost is probably a factor. Also, since there are no nuts or anything more people can have this. The reviews are great as well so I would certainly send this to someone.
Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. Gluten Free Lobster Mac & Cheese
$85 for 2.5lb
The pasta is made from my arch-nemesis quinoa but I think it can work in pasta form. More substance I hope. I haven’t seen a lot of quinoa pasta so if you have tried it, let me know. I don’t eat a lot of pasta because I can only handle so many carbs a week. I actually enjoy seafood with mac and cheese. I do wish there was a spicier version but I would try this. The breadcrumbs are made with corn and rice. The thickener in the cheese sauce is gluten-free flour. I know this seems expensive but gluten-free items tend to be pricier.

My Picks: Exotic Collection – (Mango, Lychee, Lemon, Coconut, Vanilla & Chocolate) and Tchin Tchin Collection (Piña Colada, Koval Rye, Cointreaupolitan, Mojito, Tequila Sunrise & Moscow Mule)
$74, free shipping
Now, these are some fancy macarons. Macarons are in my top three favorite desserts. The ones that cost more tend to taste so much better, unfortunately. The cheapest I would recommend are the Trader Joes version. Otherwise, pay for the quality if you can. I picked the exotic because I really love citrus and tropical fruits. They shine very well in desserts. I have never seen lychee in real life though. One day I want to try much more exotic fruit. Alcohol-based macarons are a new thing for me. I had no idea that was even an option so I really appreciate someone sending this to me. Why aren’t more desserts infused with alcohol? You’re already offering a premium product, add some pizazz.
