Unique vegan gift ideas supporting small businesses 

From one small business to another, we highly recommend the following companies. Their products are top-notch, and we love buying directly from them whenever possible. 

Bragg gift ideas for plant based eaters

Bragg: We know and love Bragg for their best-selling Bragg® Nutritional Yeast Seasoning. It’s packed with protein and B vitamins and is the perfect vegan substitute for all your parmesan cravings. Apple cider vinegar is an essential plant based cooking staple, and Bragg® Organic Apple Cider is the best. It has the mother and all. If you know, you know! Last but certainly not least, they have fantastic Coconut Aminos your Dirty will use up in a snap, so you might as well buy a few! If you need a last-minute gift, you can find many of their products in major grocery stores.

Burlap and Barrel: Spice up the holidays with Burlap and Barrel’s award-winning and single-origin spices sourced directly from small farms.

We suggest their Black Mineral Salt (kala namak), Purple Dulse Flakes, Smoked Pimentón Paprika, and, well, almost everything else!

Butler Soy Curls: These are a minimally processed and all-natural meat alternative. We use them in sandwiches, stir-fries, and more. They’re hard to find in stores, so gifting a box will surely make your Dirty smile from ear to ear.

Complement: We love getting our nutrients from food, but supplementing is essential, especially when it comes to vitamin B-12. Our Co-Founder, Molly, recommends Complement Essential (affiliate link), built specifically for plant based eaters.

rancho gordo beans gift ideas for vegans

Rancho Gordo: Once you have heirloom beans, you’ll never go back. Listen to Molly and Rancho Gordo’s founder chat on the podcast to get a feel for this awesome company. Then, try out this Masala Tomato Soup recipe featuring their insanely yummy chickpeas.

Sari Foods Company: We love Sari’s Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast. A 24-oz bag for a family of four typically lasts six months if cooking primarily plant based. Their nutritional yeast is non-GMO and grown naturally in the United States. This works well for anyone sensitive to fortified yeast, like Bragg’s.

Seven Hot Dates: We use dates in many of our sweeter recipes and in some dressings. The Bautista family in Mecca, California, grows seven varieties of organic dates. They make fruitcake sound good! Check out their seasonal sampler boxes.

Ursa Major: This is another wonderful skincare company. They never use harmful chemicals, fragrances, or colors. Molly swears by their Force Field SPF 30 as her daily face sunscreen. It’s the only one she’s found that doesn’t go on white, dry, or greasy, and it doesn’t upset her sensitive skin.

Gift ideas for vegans, Dirties, and foodies on Amazon under $20

Start with this list if you’re looking for a stocking stuffer or a little something for your plant-munching sibling or friend. Prices are subject to change.

  • Digital kitchen scale: If your loved one likes to bake, a kitchen scale is a must for accurate measurements and fewer dishes to worry about. Win-win! Even if there’s not much baking going on, scales are great for any recipe. We love rechargeable ones.
  • Double-sided measuring spoons: Use one side for wet ingredients and one for dry.
  • Food Huggers: Reduce waste by popping these bad boys on the end of cut fruit to snugly seal everything from bananas to grapefruit. No more plastic wrap, baggies, or foil! Even better, they can seal things like small bowls or containers.
  • Herb stripper: This tiny yet mighty tool helps quickly and efficiently strip the leaves from herbs and more. Did someone say cilantro? We did!
  • Microwave popcorn popper: Can popcorn made without oil or butter be good? Yes, it can! Prove it to yourself and your lucky giftee with this gadget.
  • Salad dressing shaker: Delicious dressings are just a shake away with this convenient thingamabob (we’ve got twenty!).
  • Silicone lids: These handy items are great for using with pots and pans that don’t come with lids. They also double as sink-stoppers and bowl covers. Plus, they’re microwave and dishwasher-safe.
  • Snap-on strainer: This tool is easily stored, snaps onto nearly any pot, and is perfect for batching days. 
  • Stainless steel measuring cups: Every kitchen needs these. They’re sturdy, dishwasher-safe, and won’t warp over time, so they stay accurate. We like to keep two sets on hand when batching, one for dry ingredients and the other for wet.
  • Thin metal spatula turner: This a simple gift they’ll use daily. It’s sturdy and won’t stain or melt.
  • Tofu press: Yes, it is a thing! If your Dirty has been stacking books on top of cookie sheets to press her tofu, it might be time to get her the real deal.
  • Y-shaped peeler: A nice, sharp Y-peeler will save time and aching wrists. 

Our pick: Thin metal spatula turner

Our recipe developer, Tamie, has multiple. It’s the ultimate for lifting and flipping veggie burgers, cookies, pancakes, etc.

Gift ideas for vegans, Dirties, and foodies on Amazon under $100

Have more room in the budget for the vegan in your life? Here are some great finds. Prices are subject to change.

  • Anti-fatigue mats: We suggest a mat under your sink, oven, and wherever your Dirty tends to stand in the kitchen. 
  • Cast iron skillets: Our recipe developers swear by cast iron. Just don’t put soap on it. 
  • Citrus juicer: These colorful gadgets make quick work of juicing lemons, limes, and small oranges.
  • Crocs or Telics: Having comfy house slippers or shoes can make or break a batching day. Sorry, no avocado Croc charms included. 
  • Cutting boards: We like the large, plastic ones. They’re easy on knives and make clean-up fast.
  • Food processor: A decent food processor helps speed up prep time and is perfect for making bean burgers. 
  • Glass storage containers: Get a variety of sizes for the Dirties who batch cook. These are great because you can reheat food directly in them.
  • Reusable bags: These help reduce your plastic consumption and keep things neat and tidy.
  • Seed sprouter: Help your foodie pack a nutritional punch on their sandwiches or salads with a fun seed sprouting kit.
  • Set of mixing bowls: It’s true—one can never have too many mixing bowls.
  • Souper Cubes: Perfect for freezing batched food. They are sturdy and come in a variety of sizes.

Our pick: Anti-fatigue mats

Treat your planty loved one’s feet to mats that help combat batching fatigue. Molly has three anti-fatigue mats in her kitchen, and she cannot imagine going without them.

Gift ideas for vegans, Dirties, and foodies on Amazon over $100

Make a lasting impact with a high-end gift. These investments promise efficiency, durability, and mouthgasms galore for your special someone (and hopefully you, too!).

  • Air fryer: This is a great appliance to help multitask or reheat food without heating the entire house. 
  • High-quality chef’s knife: Help them slice and dice like a pro. 
  • High-speed blender: Nothing says plant fueled joy like creamy, dreamy vegan cheesy sauce, but that’s only the beginning of the possibilities with a high-speed blender.
  • Electric pressure cooker: We have hundreds of Instant Pot recipes, and we love to use them in our meal plans to maximize efficiency in the kitchen. 

Our pick: High-speed blender

Has your Dirty made you a sauce that’s a little on the gritty side? The blender makes all the difference. A high-speed blender is an investment worth it in the long run. From sauces to dressings, smoothies, soups, dairy-free ice cream, nut milk, nut butter, and more, a high-speed blender is our top pick for items over $100. Here’s a breakdown of blenders to help you decide which is best for your special someone

Overall gift pick: Plant Fueled Life
