I find that you can’t go wrong with someone’s favorite hot sauce or a hamper of their favorite candies and snacks. Maybe they’ve got a dish they’ve been wanting to try but haven’t been able to find all the ingredients, it will certainly come across as attentive and thoughtful if they open a gift to see something they enjoy or have been searching for themselves.

We all know someone who loves a bit of heat in their food! Chilies are often a necessity for them and they always enjoy spicing up their meal. This is exactly the kind of gift that they’d love as it would save trips to the grocery store and may give them a sense of pride as they watch their chilies grow. Although… do proceed with caution if you are asked to try them out, these chilies will be coming in extra hot!
With this kit, they’ll be able to grow 4 different types of peppers and it also comes with plenty of other items to help them successfully grow their own chili plant. This kit is also suitable for indoor and outdoor use, so if you know someone that wants to expand their vegetable patch, this could be the perfect gift.
There’s no missing out anymore when it comes to being vegan, even with honey! Finding a substitute that has a similar taste/texture, can be slightly challenging but this product seems to be spot on. This vegan honey can be drizzled on almost anything, from fruits, oatmeal, to yogurts, or even tea. It adds a little bit of comfort to everything it’s paired with!
The flavor will add sweetness while the texture is light and gooey, just as honey usually is! This gift can be stored as a condiment or may even be used in recipes when baking. There are hardly any differences, apart from this product being completely bee-free, which is why it is even more gift-worthy.
One of the best feelings is opening up a box to find all your favorite snacks or ones you’ve been wanting to try but haven’t yet (until everyone asks for some!). Stored in this care package is a huge variety of different vegan items that range from salty to sweet, all making those taste buds sing! 18+ products in each box, including drinks, because trying all these delicious foods can be thirsty work!
For those who are just beginning their vegan journey and trying to figure out what they enjoy or are struggling to find vegan snacks, this box is exactly what they need to show how much is available. Or if you know someone that is a little bit picky and might want to try new flavors, this gift idea could be just the thing for them!
Something I hear a lot from people who want to go vegan is that they don’t know where to start when it comes to cooking. They may have all the ingredients and not know what to do next, or maybe they just don’t know what to look for, which often holds them back. This may not be something they can eat, but it is just the right gift to give someone who is beginning their vegan journey and is curious about cooking.
This is a step-by-step course that will make whoever you gift it to, excited about cooking and trying different meals. There are also kid-friendly recipes for parents who aren’t sure what to feed their children and need some ideas, it’s packed with everything to help someone find happiness in their kitchen again.
Of course, basic olive oil is pretty easy to pick up from the grocery store, but this isn’t just any olive oil. This is garlic-infused olive oil, which means the taste is extra delicious and flavorful, sounds pretty heavenly right? Most recipes require olive oil, and anyone that uses it frequently might like to experiment with other flavors, or may enjoy that extra touch of garlic in their food.
This works wonderfully on salads or mixed into dishes – not to mention the brilliant and colorful packaging which will have everyone curious. Aside from being tasty, this garlic olive oil also has a few health benefits. It is full of antioxidants and will even help to promote glowing skin, eyes, and hair. I mean, does it get any better?
So this one isn’t actually edible, but the recipes inside most definitely are! Cookbooks are a great tool for helping someone better their culinary skills, and it’s good to have them around the house just in case creative juices start flowing and you want to try a new recipe. This can be a good idea for new vegans who are trying to figure out the cooking part of a vegan diet but aren’t sure where to start.
Of course, it’s possible the person you buy this for may already have one or a few cookbooks, but the recipes found in this one are all different and very mouth-watering too. This idea could also work for someone who isn’t necessarily vegan but likes to make plant-based recipes and is looking to expand what meals they make.

A standard box of chocolates would, of course, be a lovely gift idea but there is something extra special about this company, which may bring an even bigger smile to whoever is receiving this gift. Not only is the packaging adorable and heart-warming, but there are a few different flavors to pick from that all taste absolutely delicious.
What makes this company so special, you ask? Well aside from them being entirely vegan, fair trade, and organic, with each chocolate that is bought, 100% of the net profits are donated to rescue organizations all around the country. They are working towards raising funds for rescues and are helping to make the world a better place for animals. This is a heartfelt gift idea that I’m sure any animal lover will adore!
Hummus lovers unite! Nothing says the perfect gift like this does, not when it comes to just how convenient and practical it is. Firstly, being made from recycled bamboo is a real plus for our eco-conscious angels out there. Plastic is not the one these days and something like this makes it easier to eliminate it a little more.
A gift like this works great for families with kids, or for someone that likes to throw dinner parties/events and would rather reuse their plates. Or if you’ve got a friend who just loves to dip their carrots into some guac or strawberries in some vegan fondue, this will make their movie nights even better.
Vegan cheese has improved a lot over the years, a few have come close to tasting identical to what many non-vegans have trouble letting go of, which shows that nobody really has to miss out when changing to a plant-based diet. Calling anyone who knows a cheese-board lover, how about gifting them this quality vegan cheese to add to their collection?
There are many ways this can be enjoyed, it goes wonderfully with bread, or can be put out on a table of other delicious vegan foods. The packaging is what also makes it a potential gift idea and perhaps you could pair it with their favorite vegan wine! This Etsy seller has a few other flavors for sale, so there’s always the option of buying a few and creating a vegan cheese basket.
There are just some condiments and sauces that enhance even the tastiest of meals even more, and I think every item in this set would do just that. They are all completely different from each other which means that there is one for every kind of cuisine. Packed with spices and flavor, each product belongs in every kitchen where they can add magic to any dish!
Although this set is slightly on the pricier side, each one has been handmade with fresh ingredients which makes them a far more quality gift. If you know someone who enjoys condiments but likes to eat more healthily, these are all low-sugar, non-GMO with no added preservatives or artificial flavorings. They will jazz up any dish, including ones that are more simple and have been quickly put together.
What could be better for any wine lover, than a set of 7 wines? They’ll get to pick from a range of flavors and can then pick their favorite. This isn’t just your ordinary set of seven wines, each bottle has a word printed which makes a lovely and heartfelt addition. As they get such a variety, they may decide to use one of the bottles in a recipe.
Buying vegan wines can be a task sometimes, scrolling through the internet to find where it’s sold, or looking at each bottle to check the ingredients – it’s a little tedious. Sometimes we just want to pick up a bottle last minute for our dinner guests, or may fancy a glass after work but can’t quite figure out where to look. Luckily with this selection, the giftee can find their new favorite wine and purchase it again from the website.
As far as convenience goes, we may be onto a winner here. There are 4 different kinds of blades for fruits and veggies so that instead of having to dish out all the separate tools to prepare food, you’ve got it all in one place. For someone that has kids and doesn’t have much time to make dinner, this could be a good gift idea, or for someone that is the type to meal prep.
This is a durable, multi-functioning tool that may be slightly on the pricier side, but truly would make a great gift because of how much time it will save. Each attachment is super useful and those blades will have onions sliced and diced in under 15 minutes! If you know someone who is trying to incorporate more vegetables in their meals, something like this could make the experience more fun and interesting.
Many of us are very into seasoned food, it just adds flavors that can’t always be created. I’m certain we all know someone who is an avid seasoner and loves to sprinkle some spice onto their meal. Perhaps your chef friends are wanting to add to their collection and put together some more exciting meals, which makes this is a gift I’m sure they’d appreciate.
When it comes to vegan cooking, sometimes it can feel slightly overwhelming if you’re not used to it, but having these jars around will help to figure out what kind of dishes to make or may provide some inspiration. This suggestion certainly works for anyone who simply loves to be in the kitchen and is looking to experiment.
Nut butter… how do you even begin to describe how delicious it is? So simple and yet so very tasty. I’m pretty sure we all know somebody who loves it more than life and would be absolutely thrilled to receive a gift like this. There is a jar for every day of the week so this means they can alternate between flavors.
Though it is slightly on the pricier side, these products have all been made organically with no refined sugar or added oil. Each one is gluten-free and the packaging is made without plastic, which is certainly pro for our planet. These are nut-butters that will have the giftee licking the spoon and having no shame in doing so!
So we all agree that sushi is heavenly and delicious? I’m glad others think so too! This is such a great way to get creative and have a bit of fun in the kitchen. Do you know anyone that especially loves sushi and would enjoy making it? Why not gift them with this kit? There is an art to rolling sushi and it does take time, practice, and is generally just a good skill to have.
I think food can often taste nicer if you’ve put the work into it, and it brings people a sense of happiness to see others enjoy their creation. You could possibly gift this to someone who is thinking of becoming a chef, or for someone who has got kids who are curious about learning new culinary skills.
I’m certain you will find something spectacular for whoever you’re gifting, and that it will bring a huge smile to their face. We’ve come a long way in the vegan world and there are so many awesome gift ideas to choose from. It’s always good to be careful when buying food as sometimes the ingredients may surprise you, even if you’re certain something is vegan, it’s always worth checking for anything like honey or even traces of milk.
I hope this list was able to give you some inspiration and show you just how much is on offer. If you’re looking for something non-food-related, why not check out our Best Vegan Gifts blog?
