Sugar Free, Gluten Free & Low Calorie Gift Ideas

Great Treats With Fewer (Or No) Calories


These “diet gifts” are great for people looking for great-tasting food with fewer calories. Choose from sugar free, calorie free, gluten free and lower calorie gifts. You can also check our prior year’s diet gift ideas.

Prices and product availability are verified at publication but are subject to change. Shipping is additional. These items are offered by a third party and THE NIBBLE has no relationship with them.


Herbal Water

We love the sophisticated flavors of Ayala’s calorie-free, unsweetened herbal waters. They’re infused with favorite herbs. Since they’re not sweetened, they pair well with food for those who don’t drink alcohol. For a dieter, they’re a calorie-free refreshment. This year, Ayala’s added to their single-serve bottle line with these beautiful 750ml glass bottles (the size of wine bottles). Read our review of the no-calorie herbal water, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.

The Cookie Jar:
Gluten Free Cookies

This gluten free baker makes large (two-ounce) cookies in Chocolate Lover (brownie cookie with chocolate chips), Double Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Choc-O Cherry, Peanut Butter Bliss and Sweet Sugar ( a frosted vanilla cookie). We tried Double Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Bliss and were very pleased. But the Chocolate Lover brownie-chip cookie is beckoning to be bought.

Sugar-Free Toffee Popcorn

Enstrom is not only our favorite toffee-maker; the company’s sugar-free toffee, sweetened with maltitol, is virtually indistinguishable from the conventional version. Now, the sweet folks at Enstrom’s have made a sugar-free version of their almond and pecan toffee popcorn as well. Anyone who loves sweets but is avoiding sugar will be in seventh heaven. Read our review of Enstrom’s Toffee, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week. Enstrom’s products are certified kosher (dairy) by Scroll K/Vaad Hakashrus of Denver.

Napa Soap Co.:

On a diet where he/she can’t have wine? Live vicariously with these beautiful, wine-inspired soaps in Cabernet Soapignon, Mandarin Chardonnay, Soapignon Blanc, Tea-no Grigio and White Zinfandel. They’ll also be appreciated by those who love their wine.

Perfect Organics:

Hazelnut Coffee Ultimate Body Scrub

Coffee ice cream may be out of the question, but this Hazelnut Coffee Ultimate Body Scrub can fill the void with zero calories. A luxurious combination of extra-gentle, all-natural exfoliants, replenishing plant oils and soothing botanical extracts plus invigorating coffee beans (yes, real coffee beans!), this body scrub rejuvenates skin, leaving it soft and radiant. And the scent is heavenly, just like hazelnut coffee.

Republic Of Tea:

Hibiscus Tea

We love the tangy flavor of hibiscus, and stayed at the Republic Of Tea pavilion at a recent trade show to taste every flavor—hot and iced. There’s a lot of flavor for no calories, in Blueberry Hibiscus, Key Lime Hibiscus, Natural Hibiscus, Pineapple Lychee Hibiscus and Vanilla Apple Hibiscus. Full-leaf hibiscus teas are also available. The Natural flavor is certified kosher by OU. Read our review of this tasty bottled Margarita.

See’s Candies:
Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate-Covered Almonds Or Walnuts

We like See’s sugar-free candies even more than the regular line. With all the hidden sugar in our diet, we’re happy to enjoy something that leaves out sugar but tastes just as good. No one will believe that the nut clusters, peanut brittle and chocolate bars aren’t conventional products. (They’re sweetened with maltitol and sucralose.) The chocolate bars and peanut brittle are certified kosher by KSA.

Skinnygirl Margarita:

Elderflower Liqueur

Bethenny Frankel, one of the Real Housewives Of New York, likes cocktails but not calories. She created the Skinnygirl Margarita with 75% fewer calories—125 calories per four-ounce serving. What you get inside the frosted bottle is a ready-to-drink, all natural cocktail made of 100% blue agave tequila, lime juice and low-glycemic agave syrup. And while it’s “lite,” it’s the best reduced-calorie Margarita we’ve had yet. Read our review of this tasty bottled Margarita.

Sugar-Free Gourmet Taffy

Sweet’s is our favorite taffy. Beautifully boxed for gift-giving, it is also naturally flavored. The embossed box, which is gorgeous in person, is the best price-value gift we’ve come across—no one would believe the gorgeous box isn’t $10 instead of $4.25, the actual price.

Sugar-Free Also Available

Certified kosher by Scroll K.
