Coming up with gift ideas for others isn't something that's always easy, which is why I've put together this list of gifts for vegan cooks.
You can go the food gift route, which is always fun and delicious, but if you're looking for non food gifts for vegans, I have a few ideas for you.
Being someone who spends a large amount of time in my kitchen, I know a little about this topic (OK, I actually know A LOT!), so I think most, if not all, of these gift ideas for vegan cooks will appeal to your friends and loved ones who love to spend time in the kitchen.

Gifts for Vegan Cooks
Cookbooks are one of the best gifts for vegan friends, family, and anyone who enjoys cooking. I love cookbooks and chances are, so does the vegan cook on your list!
Click the following links that will bring you to Amazon to see the cookbooks I recommend:

I prefer to buy my flax seeds whole and grind them up as needed for all of my baking recipes (they last longer and stay fresher when you buy the whole seeds). This grinder is also great for grinding chia seeds for smoothies and other baked recipes.
Your vegan baker (or smoothie lover) will love this.
A food processor is an extremely handy appliance to have in the kitchen and it's essential for preparing many vegan recipes and staples like nut butters, hummus, chia puddings, and more!
This cute veggie print apron will make your favourite vegan cook look stylish as they prepare delicious vegan recipes (and keep their clothing mess-free!)
Any home cook, vegan or not, should have a good, naturally non-stick cast iron pan in their kitchen. And it's the gift that keeps on giving because, if taken care of, a cast iron pan can last for decades.
This is a set of two cast iron pans, a smaller ones for small recipes and a larger one for larger recipes.
There are so many vegan ice cream recipes out there and to make them, an ice cream maker will be needed. This is the one I own, I've had it for well over 5-years, and it's still going strong.
And if you're lucky, you may be on the receiving end of some of the ice cream your friend or family member makes with it 🙂
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.
If you do buy this for someone, you may also want to also get them a cookbook specifically written for cooking in the Instant Pot since there is a tiny learning curve to working with this machine. Find a list of the best ones here.
A tofu press will make things easier and more convenient for your vegan foodie when it comes to getting all of the water out of a block of tofu.
If you have someone on your list who loves to make their own plant-based milk, then a nut milk bag is a must-have for separating the pulp from the milk.
This is a smaller item, so it would be great as a small gift, a stocking stuffer, or to go along with another gift.
Vegan or not, a spiralizer is a great tool to have in the kitchen. It makes salads more fun and adds creativity to dishes. Add this to your list of great gifts for vegan cooks!
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're all Teflon-free.
If you're looking to buy more than a doughnut pan for yourself, or the vegan 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 because I love it so much.
If someone on your list loves waffles, this is the perfect gift to give them.
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, as needed (the flavour in freshly grated nutmeg is so much better!)
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, and it's also great for making many other recipes like salad dressings, sauces, and even salsa.
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.
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 🙂 )
Cocomels are delicious vegan caramels made with coconut milk (my favourite is the sea salt cocomels!). Anyone, vegan or not, will love them!
See! Choosing gifts for vegan friends and family doesn't have to be hard. No matter what you get them, they'll likely love.
I'll add to this list of kitchen gifts for vegans as I find new and worthy things I love. Happy shopping!
