Coming up with gift ideas for others isn’t something that’s always easy. This is why I’ve put together this list of gift ideas for vegan foodies (or any type of foodie!). I know a little about this topic (OK, I actually know A LOT!), so I think most, if not all, of these items will appeal to your friends and loved ones who love to cook. Two other great things about this list?
1) It’s not only good for vegan foodies, it’s great for any food loving home cook you’re shopping for (including yourself!). Who wouldn’t want to receive these things?!
2) You can buy everything from home. There’s no need to go out to the store, all the gift buying can happen right from the comfort of your couch!
This post is not sponsored in any way, I’m not being paid to recommend these products to you, they are all items I own and love and have no problem recommending. Now, on to the gift ideas!

Gift Ideas for Vegan Foodies
If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot, you need to know about it because it’s the hottest, must-have appliance out there right now. This magical pressure cooking machine can do so many things, including cook all of the best stews, soups, side dishes, rice, and even dessert in record time (non vegan and vegan!). The feature that sold me is the yogurt making feature. Store-bought yogurts can be expensive and not taste so great, so here is the chance to make it just the way you like it!
If you do buy this for someone, you may also want to also get them a cookbook since there is a learning curve to working with this machine. Check out Vegan Under Pressure, The New Fast Food, and Vegan Pressure Cooking.
Vegan or not, a spiralizer is a great tool to have in the kitchen. It makes salads more fun and adds creativity and a little more nutrition to dishes that you would usually use pasta for.
After I bought my doughnut pan, (and started baking many, many doughnuts!), I wondered why it took me so long. I love the USA Pans brand because all of their pans are heavy duty, the non stick coating works perfectly (I’ve never had to grease any of pieces I own), and they are Teflon-free. If you’re looking to buy more than a doughnut pan for yourself or the baker on your list, check out this starter set.
I have whipped up many waffles in my kitchen and this is the compact, reliable little waffle maker I have been using for years to get the job done. I recommend it in all my waffle recipe posts! If someone on your list loves waffles, this is the perfect gift to give them.
I own this small grinder, not to grind coffee beans, but to grind flax seeds. I prefer to buy my flax seeds whole and grind them up as needed for vegan flax eggs in all of my baking recipes. Your vegan baker (or smoothie lover) will love this. Definitely a good thing to add to your gift ideas for vegan foodies list 🙂
A zester is so helpful in the kitchen, vegan or not. And it’s not just for citrus! I also use it to grate fresh nutmeg for my recipes (which makes such a difference in the flavour!)
I owned the same hand blender for over 10 years and when it decided to call it quits, this is the one I replaced it with and it’s pretty amazing. This small appliance is perfect for blending soups to get them smooth and creamy, it’s also great for many other uses.
I have made so many things with my NutriBullet blender (smoothies, sauces, and even almond cheese) and I can’t imagine not having it. It even comes with a milling blade to make flour out of oats and rice. Note that the NutriBullet is considered a high speed blender, but it’s not as powerful as a Vitamix or Blendtec.
This cute veggie print apron will make your vegan cook feel extra special (and keep their clothing mess-free!)
I learned about Cocomels on Mississippi Vegan’s Instagram Stories. He raved about how good they were, so I had to try them (of course, I always love learning about and trying new vegan treats!) And I agree with him, they’re amazing. They are delicious caramels made with coconut milk (my favourite is the sea salt!) and anyone, vegan or not, will love them! This is a great idea to add to your gift ideas for vegan foodies list as a stocking stuffer or a “just because” gift (or a treat yourself gift 🙂 )
There is nothing I don’t love about Camino. All of their products are organic, fair trade and high quality. I use their cocoa powder, shredded coconut and so many of their other products in my baking recipes. I also enjoy their chocolate bars! Check out the shopping section of their website to find a store near you or order online. These products are not on Amazon and are only sold in Canada but can also be ordered online.
I’ll add to this list of gift ideas for vegan foodies as I find new and worthy things I love. Happy shopping!
