Shower your loved ones with the gift of a healthful 2021, with presents ranging from amazing culinary gadgets, to books and magazines, to the best in organic skincare products! Here’s a round-up of our favorite gifts for vegans and anyone interested in exploring a healthy, plant-based lifestyle.
Cookbooks with Substance
We’re big fans of cookbooks with substance—especially ones that delve into the proven benefits of the plant-based diet. Bonus points for cookbooks that offer short, concise chapters interspersed with delicious, healthy recipes and meal planning tools. The roster of presenters throughout Holistic Holiday at Sea includes several authors of such books. Because they’re easy to digest (literally), these books are powerful tools in converting minds and bellies.
Here are a few we recommend:
- The Healthspan Solution: How and What to Eat to Add Life to Your Years: 100 Easy, Whole-Food Recipes by Julieanna Hever and Raymond J. Cronise
- The How Not to Diet Cookbook: 100+ Recipes for Healthy, Permanent Weight Loss by Michael Greger
- PlantPure Nation Cookbook by Kim Campbell
- Forks Over Knives The Cookbook
Instead of a cookbook, if you’d like to gift an educational book about the plant-based lifestyle, we highly recommend all of the books from our Holistic Holiday at Home Book Club.
Artisan Body Products
Select safe and natural products that support the vegan lifestyle with some of our favorite and most trusted body care brands.

There’s no better tool for diving head-first into a healthy, plant-based lifestyle than a Vitamix! From smoothies to soups to sauces, the Vitamix is so much more than a blender. Revolutionize your friend or loved one’s kitchen with the gift of the iconic Vitamix!
For plant-based cooking essentials, we also love the Instant Pot, silicone muffin pans, and mesh nut milk bags.
