5. A Gift Worth Its Salt
Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt is the first choice of many of the world's renowned chefs for enhancing the flavor of their signature cuisines.
Over 100 Million years ago, the foothills of the Himalayas were covered by an ocean. The salt trapped there by the shifting of the earth's crust congealed into perfect crystalline structure. Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt contains over 84 minerals in the same proportions found in human cells. When water and salt combine they activate to harmonize cell metabolism, by supporting acid/alkaline balance, re-mineralization of the cells, maintaining proper electrolyte levels.
Your favorite chef will love the combo pack, which includes the 16 oz. bag of Royal Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt (coarse) and a Kyocera Salt mill, made from mostly glass with a very durable ceramic grinder, so that no metal comes in contact with the salt.
Also available, their award-winning "Bliss Mix." Ingredients: Organic Pistachios, organic Himalayan Raisins, organic Mulberries, organic Gojiberries, finest Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts, organic Cashews, organic Cacao Nibs. One of the best ways to bliss out for the holidays.

6. Look Ma, No Wheat!
Kids and grownups with allergies have often been unable to participate in holiday culinary fun. But now they can with the Allergen Friendly Gingerbread House Kit. It is free of most allergens including peanut, tree nut, wheat, gluten, soy, egg, dairy, and sesame. A & J Bakery's kit includes pre-baked gingerbread house pieces plus allergen-free candy for decorating it. Now, when the enticing scent of gingerbread fills your home, even folks with allergies can nibble on a piece of the yummy roof!
The kit comes with prebaked gingerbread pieces, allergen-free candies, and an assortment of non-edible decorations. You make your own icing (they include a couple of recipes, I made the vegan version, with Trader Joe's organic confectioner's sugar and water) My house was fun to build and nibble!
For a somewhat more mature gift try "The World's Best Biscotti." Their claim is no exaggeration. Allergy-friendly, the orange cranberry biscotti I tried was without a doubt the best biscotti I have ever tasted, wheat-based or otherwise. They offered a stunning burst of flavor plus lightly crunchy, textural bliss--miles ahead of those tasteless, rock-hard imposters. 29 scrumptious flavors are personally handmade by the owners who say, "we never cut corners and we'd rather explain the price than apologize for quality." No wonder they've been featured as "Snack of the Day" on the Rachel Ray Show - twice!
A & J Bakery has one of the only 100% Nut and Gluten Free Dedicated facilities in the country.
