10 Unique Gift Ideas For Foodies

December 9, 2014

Before I became vegan, food and cooking were very low on my list of interests. Now as a vegan, I love to spend hours experimenting in the kitchen and trying new vegan restaurants when I’m traveling. It’s such an exciting time for vegans; new products are emerging so quickly that it is often hard to keep up with all the innovation. If you’ll be shopping for a foodie this holiday season, here are some ideas that will add some fun to their culinary routine (hint hint, Mom).

1. DIY Grow Your Own Shiitake Mushroom Log


In this season of gloomy days when sunlight is sparse, vegans need to make sure they are maintaining their vitamin D levels. What better way to fulfill your daily D requirement than with mushrooms? Homegrown mushrooms, to be exact.

2. Gilded Dapper Animal Tea Towel Set


This tea towel set will add some whimsy to your kitchen decor, while still maintaining a chic and grown up look.
