Gift Ideas For New Vegans
by Laura Barns
If someone special in your life has recently gone over to the green side, it might seem a little tougher when it comes to gift buying. However, there’s a whole world of great vegan gifts out there that are sure to put a smile on their face, whatever the occasion.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite ideas to help make buying vegan gifts a breeze.
Books always make a great gift, and cookbooks make the perfect gift for vegans and foodies. While you can get your hands on loads of tasty vegan recipes online (thanks Val) there’s sometimes nothing like leafing through a recipe book to get the creative juices flowing. Here we’ve rounded up some of our favourite vegan cookbooks to help get you inspired.
We might be biased, but a gift subscription for allplants is probably the best idea ever. You’ll be gifting them chef-made, nutritionally balanced meals straight to their freezer, that are ready to heat and eat in minutes. What could be better than that?! Take a look at our menu here, and get ready to get hungry.

We all know that tofu is a vegan’s best friend, but did you know that a tofu press is the ultimate tofu BFF? A tofu press is a kitchen contraption that removes the water from your tofu, resulting in a denser block with added texture. By removing water, it can be replaced with marinades and dressings of your choosing. Tofu presses come in two different styles; plate style or box style. Want to know which tofu press to buy? Check out this guide.
A blender is arguably the best vegan kitchen tool as they’re paramount for whipping up soups, sauces, smoothies and more. So a good blender is a great gift for your vegan loved one. Here’s a great guide for which blender to buy at every price point.
