Maybe not: Hives is common. Most people get hives some time in their lives. Hives are an allergic reaction to some allergen, but celiac disease is a different type of allergic immune system reaction. Perhaps in the future, there will be more research information on any relationship of hives to celiac disease. Celiac disease is associated with an itchy rash with blisters, called dermatitis herpetiformis.

Possible: If your celiac disease is active, then the "stress" of the disease can make you break out in hives. Also malnutrition will cause your body to be "stressed" therby you will have hives.
