Old Stone Oven Rectangular Pizza Stone
As mentioned earlier, pizza can still be keto, but you are probably going to have to make it yourself. The key to great pizza is of course the crust, and although I haven’t found a keto pizza crust recipe quite as good as restaurant pizza, having a proper pizza stone sure helps.
The Old Stone Oven Pizza Stone transfers the heat evenly for a perfect bake and the rectangular shape makes it perfect for baking other breads and buns as well.
Bee's Wrap - Beeswax Food Wraps
Take a look in any keto lovers’ refrigerator and you’ll find half an avocado set in there someplace, most likely in the top of the door.

Contigo AUTOSEAL Chill Vaccuum Insulated Water Bottle

$25 Amazon Gift Card
Gift cards can seem a little impersonal, but they can often be the best way to get someone exactly what they want. Nothing is worse than wasting money on a gift that someone doesn’t want or won’t use, and leaving them with the inconvenience of returning it.
As you know, Amazon is a great place to get just about anything, and you can put any amount you like on the card. Purchase an Amazon Gift Card with a themed logo or place it in a gift box or holiday card to make it just a little more special.
