The Holidays and the Perfect Hostess Gift With A Giveaway

Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipes Including the Shopping List

Yikes! Thanksgiving is in ONE week! Are you in panic mode yet?

Well, today, I have the perfect idea for a hostess gift if you are heading out to family and friends for the holiday. I am going to tell you all about it below and am even going to be giving away TWO of them just because I love the idea of this gift SO MUCH.

But first,  just in case you are cooking the big meal, I wanted to share my go-to game-plan, menu, recipes, and shopping list from my Allergy-Friendly Thanksgiving Series.

Allergy Friendly Thanksgiving Recipes

Annual Allergy-Friendly Thanksgiving Prep Series:

If you are hosting the big feast this year, the above list will make your Allergy-Friendly Thanksgiving so much easier. It has everything you need, from the recipes and the shopping list, to even a step-by-step game plan to keep you organized and get you through the day without going crazy.

And in case you are not hosting, but perhaps bringing a dish along with you, you can easily pick from one of the recipes above to bring along and know that you will have an allergy-safe dish for you and your family to eat.

You can also bring along this absolutely perfect hostess gift with you this season to pass out to your wonderful hosts of the holidays.

The 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendar!

Holiday hostess gift Allergy Friendly

Diane Eblin, of The Whole Gang, and author of The Gluten-Free Diner e-book, has just created a “great affordable gift option for friends, family, hostess, clients, co-workers, employees, teachers, mail carriers, newspaper carriers…really anyone on your gift list!”

Her one-of-a-kind 2013 Cookbook Desk Calendar is a stunning desk calendar that has individual cards for each month beautifully displaying the calendar, recipe, and a gorgeous full-color photograph of the meal.  The calendar itself is based on her own philosophy of easy, healthy, gluten-free living with a simple way to also cook dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and Paleo meals all at the same time without having to cook five different meals at one time.

AND… each calendar comes in its own gift/shipping box to make your gift-giving really simple this year.

This Cookbook Desk Calendar Features:

  • 12 beautifully-designed cards in a clear CD case specially made to stand-up and display on your desk or countertop.  (4 5/8” x 5 3/8”)
  • Gorgeous color photos of each dish with easy-to follow recipes on the back.
  • All gluten-free and dairy-free recipes with optional VegetarianVegan, and Paleo directions for each recipe to fit any diet!
  • BONUS!  Secret access code for a hidden page full of insider tips, tools, resources & 28 additional recipes on The WHOLE Gang website.

BONUS Hidden Page Features include:

  • 9 new additional recipes & links to 19 more recipes
  • cooking tips and tricks
  • additional recipe suggestions along with instructional photos
  • ingredient information and tools/resources for substitutions and suggestions
  • instructional cooking videos

I recently received my calendar and am completely in love with it. I have it sitting right on my counter and have already made four of the different recipes from it! I love how the recipes are laid out and how she provides options to completely tailor the recipes to whatever your dietary needs may be.

If you decide to order one of these as a gift, just beware, you may decide you want to keep it for yourself. In that case…you may just want to order an extra for you! ;)

And…you may just be one of two lucky winners to receive your own calendar. I am giving away a calendar to two different winners.
