Cyber Monday - Holiday Gift Guide

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: FAQ Holiday

Give the gift of health with The Happy Herbivore Cookbook, Everyday Happy Herbivore and Happy Herbivore Abroad!

If you live in the U.S., Amazon is the best deal. For my international friends, go to book depository (free world wide shipping!). I'm also selling signed copies of both books in our store

and don't forgetthe 2012 Happy Herbivore Calendar (all proceeds benefit a student!)

Shameless self-promo aside...

I've gotten a few emails and tweets asking for brand and model recommendations; plus gift ideas for foodies -- so here is my list:

Knives: A good knife will totally change your experience in the kitchen! I recently purchased a Victorinox Chef's Knife and I love it! It's inexpensive and feels really comfortable in my hand. ($27.99).

Microplane:I love my microplane zester --  It's my favorite kitchen accessory! Necessary? No. Worth the purchase? YES. ($10.75)

Pressure Cooker: My friend JL is always raving about hers, so I bit the bullet and bought a Presto 6-quart when I moved to Colorado. Let me tell you, I'll never buy canned beans again! They're inexpensive and handy! ($38.00)

Food Processor:I have a mini food processor and a 7-cup food processor. While I managed to live without both for a year (I relied on my blender or chopping skills) having them both has made all the difference -- they save me so much time!

Glass Straws: I know -- a straw sounds like the lamest gift ever but strawesome sent me a free sample recently and I love it so much I'm buying a couple for friends. It's a great stocking stuffer!

Cookware Set: I use Emilware, Emiril's line of kitchen pots and pans. It's a splurge, but worth every penny! 

Kindle Fire: Santa brought Scott a Kindle Fire early. It's awesome -- like the iPad, but cheaper. 

Books: I gave my mom the Hunger Games Trilogy for her birthday. I read all three books in the span of a weekend! I read Switch and What I Wish I Knew When I Was Twenty when traveling in Europe and both books were life-changing awesome! 

Finally, Nutritional Yeast: Because everyone needs a bag of nutritional yeast in their stocking!

Happy shopping!
