Buying Gifts for Vegans is challenging, but not impossible. There are countless items to support vegan recipes so that you can be supportive of people and their healthy lifestyles, but when Christmas or their birthdays come around, it can be difficult to purchase a decent gift to support their vegan diet.
So, I asked all of my friends that eat plant based diets and I got some awesome recommendations for what gifts would be the most appropriate for friends and families that do not eat meat. As a semi-vegan myself (you can read more about that here in my vegan journey), I have found that these recommendations can really encourage as well as simplify a meat free diet.
You do not have to go vegan to support your vegan friends- trust me!

I cook rice every single day. I add it to my soups, chilis, my beans- everything! For a vegan, having rice cooking this XXX will make life so much easier. Whenever they need to add in a little bit of extra carbohydrates, a half a cup of rice is the easiest, most delicious way to keep your energy high.
This rice cooker is the perfect gift for an established vegan or anyone looking to add more plant based meals into their diet for their new year's resolution.
Any Cooks best friend- the instapot! When you are eating a vegan diet, though, an Instapot can become even more essential. You can cook beans from scratch, lentils, tofu… anything!
Millions of people use their Instapot for clean, vegan meals with amazing reviews- grab one Here for the ultimate gift.
As a mom of 3 growing kids, I strongly believe that a blender is a must have for all homes. Having a blender can help any family eat a cleaner diet by using a blender like the Ninja Blender.
For my own families vegan meals, I use our own Ninja blender for tons of recipes like smoothies (check out my delicious immune boosting smoothie here), spaghetti sauce with lentils, or making hummus from scratch.
If anyone that you know is looking to enhance their vegan recipes, then this blender is the way to go!
I was shocked at how much more cutting you do once you begin eating a more plant based diet. Its just one of those unavoidable things that happens- you will need to cut a lot more fruits and vegetables as a vegan. So why not gift your fruit and veggie lovers a beautiful cutting board like this one fromSmirley on Amazon.
Just look at this kit- 4 different sized cutting boards with adorable food engraved in the corner so you don't mix food types- this set is a dream come true!
Something that I personally invested in for my own kitchen when I decided to move into a more vegan diet was a quality set of knives. We chose theJ.A. Henckels Knife Block Set from Amazon and I am obsessed.
This knife set comes with 15 quality knives that will beautifully sit on your friends counter-top for years to come. I love it so much that my Mom even has it!
One of the best ways to save money with a vegan diet is to buy in bulk and store what you are not able to use. The only problem can be finding the right kind of storage at a decent price to be able to store any dry goods like lentils, rice, beans, etc. That is why I always try to grab these storage containers as one of my favorite gifts for all of my vegan friends and family.
This storage kit on Amazon is just one of those gifts that any adult will appreciate getting. A word of warning though- these storage containers are a safe bet that you will be a contender for the top gift giver of the family. Purchase wisely!
You can make just about anything with a food processor, which is why it is one of my favorite gifts for any vegans that I know. You can make your own nut butters, your own pesto, mashed potatoes, vegan cheesecake… you get the point.
Any craving that you may have, I know a vegan can figure out a way to make a plant based version of that food with a food processor, which is what makes this the perfect gift! Vegans use their food processors for almost every single meal, so if you are looking for the perfect gift for your vegan pal, why not gift them one of the most used kitchen appliances like theCuisinart Food Processor?
Grab it on Amazon Here!
A garlic press is a simple yet wonderful gift to give and something that vegans use a lot.
I will use a garlic press to help add flavors into soups, hummus, and roasted vegetables- yum!
Another great trick with a garlic press is to use one for ginger. Squeeze the juice out into a morning juice shot and boost your immune system!
I love this gift, grab a strong one like this one from Zulay. I love the sleep metal look to it as well!
Seasonings are the perfect personal gift to give your friends and family to help spice up any vegan recipes (pun intended). Some of my favorite seasonings are from the FreshJax Organic Spices Kit. They really compliment vegetables when you roast or grill them, especially broccoli and carrots!
Any vegan in your life will appreciate this Spices Kit- click here to grab it from Amazon!
