Staying on a keto diet through the holidays can be challenging! Surprise your keto dieting friends and family members with an awesome keto gift basket to help keep them on track this holiday season! Read on to see some of my favorite keto-friendly treats for filling your keto gift basket.
My husband and I were on a keto diet during the holidays last year, so I know just how hard it can be to resist temptation during this time of year. Everyone around us was stuffing their faces with sugar filled holiday goodies, while we were trying to stay as far away from them as possible.
Staying keto through the holidays can be very challenging, and I certainly would have greatly appreciated a keto gift basket full of delicious keto-friendly foods to help make it a little easier!

Most holiday gift baskets are full of candy, chocolates and other sugar-laden foods. If you know someone who is currently on a keto diet, they are not going to want a gift basket full of sugar this Christmas!
KETO GIFT BASKET IDEAS
Here are some great keto gift basket ideas that the keto dieter in your life will absolutely love! These are all things I really enjoyed while I was on the keto diet, and they are very popular in the keto community.
Cheese is pretty much a staple on the keto diet. It’s low in carbs, but is a great source of fat and protein!
These cheesy snacks would be a great addition to any keto gift basket. They are absolutely delicious, and there’s no need to worry about keeping them refrigerated. I love dunking mine in dip, or eating them with pepperoni.
Learn how to make cheese crisps at home! Wrap them up in a pretty bag, and add them to your keto gift basket.

People on a keto diet need to keep their magnesium levels in check so they don’t start to feel sluggish. A lot of people keep their magnesium levels up by eating pickles or drinking pickle juice.
Add some of these pickle ice freeze pops to your keto gift basket for a fun little pick-me-up! They are a bit unusual and something your keto dieter friend will find very interesting.
Pork clouds are a great addition to a keto diet. They are a great way to get that “crunch” fix taken care of, without all the carbs. I love dunking them in my favorite dip, or using them in place of breadcrumbs when cooking! I have even made pork cloud nachos before that were delicious!
These pork clouds come in three great flavors – Malabar Black Pepper, Habanero Pepper, and Rosemary & Sea Salt. Yum!
I ate a ton of olives while I was on the keto diet. They were one of my favorite snacks, and paired well with a plate of cheese, pickles and deli meats.
These savory pepper flavored olives are an excellent on-the-go snack choice for keto dieters because they are packed without the juice.
Nuts are another way to get that “crunch” fix without all the carbs. Some nut varieties are on the carby side, so you have to pay close attention to the nutrition label, but these almonds and macadamia nuts are perfect for a keto diet.
Almond butter is a fantastic way to take care of a sweet tooth while on the keto diet. A little taste goes a long way and can kill a craving fast.
A lot of people will make “fat bombs” with the almond butter, or it can be slathered on a piece of celery or eaten with a spoon straight out of the jar! Make sure you get one that’s made from almonds only, and with no added ingredients.
LILY’S DARK CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are very popular among keto dieters. Women in particular absolutely love these delicious little morsels that help satisfy a sweet tooth, and make that “time of the month” a little more bearable. They are great for snacking on, or baking up keto-friendly treats.
Your keto dieting friend would be thrilled to see these in their keto gift basket!
PINK HIMALAYAN SALT
Keto dieters need to increase their salt intake, and Pink Himalayan salt is a wonderful way to do that.
This Pink Himalayan Salt Giant Spice Grinder would be a perfect addition to a ketogenic gift basket.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
A lot of people on the keto diet take apple cider vinegar on a daily basis for its incredible health benefits. Make sure you buy the “one with the mother”!
HEALTHY COOKING OILS
Keto cooks need lots of healthy fats to cook with and this bundle of avocado oil spray, coconut oil spray and ghee spray, and Salted White Truffle Grass-Fed Ghee Butter would be a fantastic addition to a keto gift basket.

Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and Pili nuts with Himalayan salt are other great keto snack options. We love that crunch!
Most keto dieters I know drink lots of coffee, so you can’t go wrong with adding a bag of ground coffee to a keto gift basket! Include a nice self-stirring mug for making bulletproof coffee!

A lot of keto recipes call for almond flour and/or coconut flour, but it can be a bit on the expensive side so a lot of people shy away from buying it on a regular basis.
There are lots of great recipes I have been dying to try out, but I’m just too darn cheap to buy these flours for myself. They would make excellent additions to a keto gift basket!
Ground flax seeds and chia seeds would also be great to include in your keto gift basket. They both have amazing health benefits and are quite versatile for use in the keto diet. I love using them to make “noatmeal”!
Bone broth also has some incredible health benefits, and many keto dieters swear by it, especially while they are fasting.
BACON FLAVORED COCONUT CHIPS
Bacon is a very popular food choice on the keto diet, and any keto dieter who loves bacon would love these bacon flavored crunch coconut chips.
NON-FOOD KETO GIFT BASKET IDEAS
If you don’t want to make a full-on gift basket for your keto dieting friend, a keto mug and a bag of coffee is one of my favorite keto diet gift ideas.
Some other great keto diet gift ideas are a meat package, a vegetable spiralizer, a lettuce spinner, or a digital kitchen scale.
The keto diet is very popular right now. These keto gift basket ideas are perfect for any friend or family member, teacher, boss, etc., who is on a keto diet.
What will you add to your keto gift basket?
