What are some good ideas for paleo gifts?

I'm thinking mother's day for paleo!mom, but also in general. She has all the normal books like The Primal Blueprint, The Paleo Diet, Protein Power, ad nauseum, so she doesn't need more stuff telling her what the paleo diet is.

She also doesn't live near me, so it has to be something I can ship.

Have you actually ordered and received an shipment from Dickstevens? I haven't gotten my shipment ordered 5 weeks ago!

I know I do, but I'm a dad, not a mom....

That's what I first gave my Mum after going primal, and that's what set her on a healthier path, starting with almond pancakes fried in coconut oil for breakfast every morning! And this is a woman who rarely ate breakfast, maybe one slice of toast, yet upping the fat via coconut oil helped her lose all her post-50 fat! Definitely a winning gift in so many ways.

I would ship her some premium coconut oil from:

www.tropicaltraditions.com what better gift then coconut cream, oil, or other products. And it's wonderful for her skin too. :-)

Is she active? It's about more than food - I think a gift that brought activity and sunlight would be very cool. Pay for some horseback riding lessons - something like that.

Well as a paleo mom, I think I'd like cookbooks, coconut oil or cream....maybe some Vibram 5 fingers. ANYTHING for small gardens (I live in an apartment)....maybe a gift certificate to a local farm that has grass fed meats? That's pretty much my list!

How about a flintknapping kit? Doesn't get more Paleo than this:

How about a cook book? Most of the recipes in the Gluten Free Almond Flour Cookbook are right up a paleo's alley. Go to the author's blog http://www.elanaspantry.com/ and in the top right corner of the site is a link to the book. The site is also a great source of easy to make recipes. I love my cookbook, I'm sure you're mom will too.

Other ship-able paleo treat options:

Paleobrands.com cavemencookies.com paleotreats.com paleokits.org dickstevensnuts.com

If she's into the Paleo diet, she could check out the Paleo Cookbook. She can find more information at http://www.paleocookbookinfo.com.

All moms want their own clovis spearpoints, yes? Or maybe just an arrowhead neckless?

If you're thinking of getting her a cookbook I would recommend the Paleo Cookbooks http://www.paleocookbook.com . I haven't got the Primal Blueprint yet but the recipes on his website look good - maybe a Grok on t-shirt!

At Macy's you can get these Great containers: http://www1.macys.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=371879&CategoryID=47184

They have a removable freezer pack that fits into the lid and they're great for taking snacks places!

I have some and I love them

Also, don't forget paleokits.com!

You could try this recipe for tasty Cocoa and Coconut Snack Bars from Mark Sisson

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/cocoa-and-coconut-snacks/

My friend just sent me them for my birthday and they were amazing. Be sure to put them in the fridge for a day or two before sending so they set.
