Vegan Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Vegan Holiday Gift Guide 2018

Ahhhh… Now that Thanksgiving is done and our bellies are gloriously full, it’s time to… SHOP! That’s right, we don’t like to waste any time! However, you will never find me out shopping at 5:00am but I will be camped on my in-law’s couch ordering with a few simple clicks of a button. I usually find a few minutes when everyone else is taking their Thanksgiving nap!

But I know sometimes it can feel so overwhelming to try and find the perfect gift when perusing online. Therefore, we decided you may be interested in some of the gifts we are loving for our foodie friends and family right now.

Simply click on the links below to learn more or purchase right from your very own comfy chair.  Also, one great technique I’ve found over the years- if you are traveling for the holidays, simply send your gifts to your destination and then wrap them once you arrive! Just be sure to check that your hostess doesn’t mind a couple of extra boxes lying around. (Thanks Mom!)

Also, no cats were harmed in this post.  Our cat, Gertrude, was only mildly displeased but she received ample compensation for her time and talent!

Without further ado here are the food gifts we are loving right now….

For the home cook:

Citrus Zester    Instant pot chefs knife

spatula set stashed reusable baggie glass containers

mandolin       fiesta mixing bowls food processor


  1. Microplane Zester: Amazing for getting the most flavor possible out of citrus fruit. Citrus zest makes a great addition to hummus.
  2. Instant Pot: Cook hard grains and rice in minutes. Also great for potatoes and root veggies. The hype is real!
  3. Wustoff Chef’s Knife: Every kitchen should have a durable knife. This is our go-to.
  4. Le Creuset Spatula Set: A tool for every job. Don’t leave any morsel of food behind.
  5. Stasher Reusable Bags: Save drawer space and the planet at the same time. Great for travel and washes easily.
  6. Glass Food Storage Containers: Reusable and easy to clean. These containers have a size for every leftover!
  7. Meuller Mandoline: Perfect for thin, even cuts. Makes quick work of a salad or an appetizer tray.
  8. Fiesta Mixing Bowls: We love how these are lightweight but stable thanks to their slip-proof bottoms. The sizes are perfect, too!
  9. Cuisinart Food Processor. This is a must for fresh salsas or nut spreads.

For a new vegan:

vitamix       nooch        air fryer

  1. Vitamix E310: We use our Vitamix DAILY. Hummus, “cheese” sauce, and soups have never been smoother.
  2. Nutritional Yeast: Add amazing flavor to sauces and soup with this vegan staple. You won’t believe its not dairy based.
  3. Bella Air Fryer: Make homemade fries and crispy tofu with a fraction of the oil.
  4. Excalibur Dehydrator: Cut the cost of your snacks by making your own dried fruit or make your own dried herbs.  So worth it!
  5. Handheld Spiralizer: Fool picky eaters with fun veggies noodles. The “pastabilities” are endless. 😉
  6. Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker: Not Just for dairy. This ice-cream maker allows you to make vegan ice cream at home.
  7. Calphalon Wok: Easily whip up a large stir fry on a busy weeknight. This wok makes it easy to feed a family.
  8. Grill Basket: Roast your vegetables outside in the summer. The great grilled flavor makes anything taste good.
  9. Wilton Donut Pan: Don’t wait for your local bakery to carry vegan donuts. Make them at home!

For the Stocking Stuffers:
