Looking for vegan food gifts for foodies and home cooks (men and women) in your life? Here are some handpicked must-have smart kitchen gadgets to choose from! Add them to your vegan gift basket this holiday season! I will not judge you if you decide to keep some for yourself!
Holiday season = Gifting season
It's my favorite time of the year! Yay!! Seriously, I love the gifting season because I take gifting very seriously! Be it for loved ones or kids, I never ever pick up any random gift just for the heck of it. There is a whole process that happens! 🙂
Personally, I prefer gifts that are unique and not run-of-the-mill types. I like it when people who come over compliment the quirky stuff they find around our house. Since I love receiving gifts that are different, useful, trendy, and easy on the pocket, I use the same approach when gifting others.
The gifts here can be gifted to vegan foodies, home cooks, culinary lovers, someone who loves to host, and/or the person whose cooking you admire. Also, this vegan food gift guide is not just limited to the holiday season!
DISCLAIMER - Please note we have not tried and tested all these items, this is a guide only. Always do your own research before purchasing any product. Cookilicious and I personally take no responsibility for any purchases made. Although I do get a small percentage of income from the purchases you make.
Gifts for vegans/vegetarians
Is someone close to you a vegan or a vegetarian? Searching for gifts for vegetarians is not that difficult once you know what they need! I have handpicked a collection of cooking gifts that both men and women vegan foodies can enjoy.
You can either present them with a vegan gift basket with a mix of all their favorite smart kitchen gadgets or give them something big! The choice is yours. So are you ready to get all to the good stuff?
Before you even start, also check out my SHOP page. It has links to different products I use that are also not food-related. All of these brands have been kind enough to share an exclusive promo code with us. They are all small businesses and would love your support.
Get my cookbook
The first and best gift you can give a vegan foodie is a cookbook and it's even better if you get mine! I am SO excited to finally announce that I've written a new book, The Essential Vegan Indian Cookbook.
This Indian vegan cookbook is a guide to cooking traditional plant-based delicacies and restaurant classics with a vegan twist. I've worked hard on this book and am so happy that I can finally share it with the world! I would love your support.
If you have enjoyed my recipes so far then this book will be an asset to your cookbook collection. You can order a copy here.
My hand-picked gift guide
I keep updating this list periodically. The items featured here are a mix of things I already have and the ones I wish to have.
Having this Indian mixer grinder and Coffee and Spice Grinder makes my job easier. I like this one because it's small and compact plus it does the job. You can also use it to ground fresh coffee! Now, who doesn't like that?
This one is pure genius! Whoever came up with this, deserves an award! It is on my wish list this year. Gone are the days when you would need to dip the ice cream scoop in hot water before digging it into an ice cream container.
A great-looking and functioning knife style on a kitchen counter is a conversation starter! Gift your loved one this knife set and watch them display it with great pride!
This is perfect for lovers of zoodles and other veggie-based spaghetti. A perfect gift for the veggie-lover in your life!
I am in love with these containers! They are free of plastic and reusable. They are microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe, and freezer safe. Plus they come in beautiful colors (I have a teal one). Do check them out.
We use this in India often. This single sandwich toaster is amazing. This is on my wish list. One can get creative with the stuffing and this toaster helps keep it intact. That is the sole reason to get this gadget for your sandwich-loving friend or family member.
Talking about smart kitchen gadgets, this one again is pure genius! A game-changer! It's on my wish list and I will get it this year for sure!! Buy it today!
While I know there is no such thing as too many gadgets, if you can reduce the number of gadgets you own, then why not! This Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid gives you all the benefits of an Air Fryer using an Instant Pot!, so you don't need to buy an air fryer if you own an IP!
This smart kitchen gadget is for the health-conscious vegan home cook in your life! If he/she is always making health bars for a grab-n-go type of snack then they will surely thank you profusely for this thoughtful gift. This kitchen gadget makes granola bar prep a super easy task!
Savory Veggie Dosa Waffles and Mashed Potato Hummus Waffles are two of my favorite savory waffles that I often make in the waffle maker! One can get creative with the waffle maker and make sweet and savory recipes. Both taste great and this kitchen gadget makes for a great gift for vegan foodies.
I have this one and I love it! It's a very handy box where one can store all the dry spices in one place. We all use a variety of dry spices in everyday cooking and this wooden box makes for great storage. The see-through cover makes it convenient to see all the spices, plus it's easy to clean.
I think this is hands down the best and smartest kitchen gadget ever, and nearly every home has one! But if you know of someone who still hasn't got one, then it makes a perfect gift. This is the one I use and I absolutely love it. If you want to look up recipes to make in the Instant pot, then check here.
This is what I have and I love it! I use it to make all kinds of Idli recipes like Masala Idli, Ragi Idli, and Amaranth Idli. It comes with a Dhokla plate which is very handy when I have to make Kobichi Vadi or Corn Dhokla! This steamer is a great kitchen gadget that helps you make oil-free snacks effortlessly!
17) Tofu Press
This is a no-brainer! Tofu is an essential ingredient for vegan foodies. And if someone is cooking with tofu, they need a tofu press! This is one of those smart kitchen gadgets that all vegans should own. BTW, all tofu lovers, do give these Tofu Stir-Fry Noodles, and Tofu Makhani Bake a try!
