Here at Proper Good, we’ve researched and written about the ketogenic diet quite a bit. After all, it’s one of our favorite ways of eating healthy and we wholeheartedly support the keto lifestyle.
We’ve even written about gift basket ideas for keto.
Here’s the thing, though–with so many new keto-friendly products and ideas emerging every single day, we decided to have a little fun with finding keto gift ideas for the holiday season!
Let us know if you decide to give any of these ideas to a special friend or family member this year!
Gifts for the keto beginner
We know that starting a new diet can be reallllly tough. And for anyone beginning their keto journey, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the guidelines … not to mention the fear of messing up!
But there are so many helpful tools out there for those just beginning the keto diet. You can give someone a keto-themed holiday gift that is thoughtful, yet useful, and helps them achieve their health goals.
Here are a few of our favorites:
All-In-One Slicer, Shredder & Spiralizer: for many new keto dieters, one of the toughest foods to go without is traditional grain-based pasta. A popular substitute they can turn to is spiralized keto friendly vegetables, like zucchini, but spiralizing vegetables is a tedious and time consuming chore–who has time for that?! This handy tool makes spiralizing vegetables easy AND fun!
Beginner Keto Cookbook: sometimes it’s best to bring recipes back to the basics. This 5-ingredient ketogenic diet cookbook keeps each recipe down to just 5 simple ingredients. AND recipes can be made in only 30 minutes with just one pot or pan.
30-Day Keto Planner: this interactive planner is a PERFECT gift for those looking to begin their keto diet in the new year. It takes the guesswork out of starting the ketogenic diet and shares expert tips and tricks, such as sugar substitutes, a macro calculation worksheet, a keto food list, and much more!
Gifts for the keto expert
Just like with any diet, those who have been on the ketogenic diet for many months or years may find themselves turning to the same tools and foods over and over. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with that (we’re creatures of habit, too! ;) ) it can be fun to mix it up every now and then!
So this holiday season, gift these products to the keto lover in your life who might THINK they already have everything … but don’t!
Storage Set: as anyone on the keto diet knows, you’re in the kitchen cooking quite a bit! It’s easy for your pantry or cabinet area to get cluttered when you have so many tasty, home made ingredients around. A storage set could be a lifesaver to a friend or family member on the keto diet. Clear containers allow them to safely store their favorite keto friendly goodies while also keeping things organized!
Proper Good Seasoning: this is a great gift for those who have been on the keto diet for a while and are looking for new ways to add a little kick to their favorite recipes. At Proper Good, we believe healthy doesn’t have to mean bland! Which is why we created the Proper Good Spicy Seasoning blend, which uses a mouth-watering combination of red pepper, white pepper, and paprika to add a delicious pop of heat to all types of meals.
Gifts for the fun lover
For those who are on the keto diet, there are certain, shall we say … inside jokes that only those in the community will understand. These keto gift ideas may fit the bill for the person in your life with a fun sense of humor.
Bacon-Themed Socks: For many people living the keto lifestyle, their favorite food is bacon. Salty, protein-rich, high in fat, and just so stinking good, bacon is the best. So celebrate bacon by displaying it on your feet! :)
Avocado Potholder: Etsy is a GREAT spot to find unique, personalized gifts. Plus, when you make a purchase from Etsy, you’re supporting small business owners! Here we found a gift themed with another keto staple–the avocado! Those who have these delicious green fruits in their pantry know they’re notoriously finicky when it comes to ripeness and will get a laugh out of these silly potholders.
Gifts for the outdoorsy one
It seems everyone has that one friend or family member who thrives on being outdoors. But sometimes, it’s tough to stick to a diet with limited space, like when you’re hiking or camping.
Here are some great items you can give someone to help support their keto lifestyle while they’re on-the-go.
Thermos: When going on long or short hikes, it’s important to stay hydrated. Perfect for warm or cool temps, a durable water bottle is an awesome way for hikers to store water! This thermos from Yeti comes in several fun colors and is also dishwasher safe–super durable and convenient.
In addition to staying hydrated, it’s SO important to keep nourished with healthy foods, too! Proper Good meals are a portable choice for outdoorsy folks–our products boil right there in the pouch, which makes a perfect option for those who need an easy peasy keto bite on the go but don’t want to compromise on flavor.
Hiking Subscription Box: Help an outdoorsy friend or family member discover new products with a subscription box! Cratejoy is a favorite website because not only are there MANY box options to choose from, but you’re supporting entrepreneurs.
This hiking checklist from REI also has several more gift ideas for people who love hiking.
It’s so easy to get caught up on finding “that perfect gift idea,” especially for someone on the keto diet who has very specific interests and dietary needs! We hope this list has helped make your holiday shopping just a LITTLE easier this year. :)
