Mothers Day, Fathers Day, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions call for special gifts. When the person you are buying for either must or prefers to limit their sugar intake, you may feel like your choices are limited.

Not so! Enter the Sugar Free Gift Basket!

I've found a great selection of sugar free gift baskets for diabetics or health nuts, along with a number of treats that have no added sugar.If you're needing a gift for someone who is on a diet, or can't eat refined sugar, look here for a solultion!. These are the some of best sugar-free gift baskets you can get - and some of them are available at low prices.

My husband is diabetic, and he often misses out on the 'fun' that comes when a food gift arrives.

But this year, he'll be getting a special gift basket, made up just for him. Happy Anniversary, honey!

Holidays and Diabetics -

Problem Solved!

For the longest time, my husband, who is diabetic, used to feel a little left out and slighted when a gift basket would arrive at our house. Though he was always good matured about it, I could tell he felt bad that someone had sent something to US that had some or a lot of stuff in it that HE shouldn't eat.

That problem is now solved with these special offerings for diabetics! I am excited to have discovered these wonderful baskets that have been designed with dieters and diabetics in mind.

It's about time!

Drink Cinnamon Tea

with Your Healthy Treats

Cinnamon Tea really isn't tea at all. But it IS yummy and beneficial, too!

If your blood sugar, blood pressure, or cholesterol levels are on the high side, this drink may help!

After adding Cinnamon Tea to our diet daily, we saw a noticable improvement in my husband's blood pressure, cholestorel, and blood sugar levels.

Cinnamon has been cited as having a number of health benifits

And guess what? We really like it, and it's super easy to make, too! Isn't that nice?


Fat and Cholesterol Free - Yummy and Good for You, Too!

A delightful gift basket for those watching their cholesterol - this basket contains fat free and cholesterol free or very low cholesterol items (Note- This basket is not markete as sugar-free. Some items may contain sugar.) Get your loved one something that shows you care about them and their health with a Fat Free Cholesterol Free Gift Basket.

Always be sure to carefully read the list of ingredients on any item if sending to someone with very strict diteary concerns!


This basket is stuffed with sweet and savory treats that prove fat- and cholesterol-free isn't flavor-free

Healthy Snacks for Every Day - No Added Sugars in These

While this is not a gift basket, I thought it worth mentioning here.

We have recently discovered Brothers Freeze Dried Fruit. It's a perfectly healthy sugar free snack that tastes really good. I'd recommend the variety pack, which allows you to try three different fruits. That's what we did

My husband, who is diabetic, really likes these. His favorites of this pack is the Strawberry / Banana mix. My favorite is the dried pears.

Sometimes, You Just Want Chocolate

Sometimes, you just want some good old chocolate. And that includes those who must limit or avoid sugar, too.

Healthy snacks are great, but when it comes right down to it, chocolate is in a class by itself. Nothing compares to it.

So, thank goodness there are diabetic friendly sugar free chocolates.

What a treat!

Your turn! WHat do you think about these sugar free gift baskets? Do you know someone who would appreciate one of them?

Have you ever given or sent one of them to someone?

      So many great ideas. I'm a diabetic and it's nice to have some sort of goodies now and then. Many of the "Sugar Free" items have sugar alcohol which tends to make me sick so fruit baskets are a wonderful idea.

      The biggest problem with sugar free treats is that often the companies use Nutrasweet (aspartane) instead of sugar. My wife is allergic to it!

      Instead we look at fruit, nuts, and jerky. Yes, jerky and nuts make up a wonderful basket!
