Our Holiday Gift Guide

Posted by:Lindsay S. Nixon Category: Misc

Give the gift of health with one (or all!) of my cookbooks:
The Happy Herbivore Cookbook
Everyday Happy Herbivore
Happy Herbivore Abroad (brand new!)

If you live in the U.S., Amazon is the best deal. For my international friends, go to The Book Depository (free worldwide shipping!). I'm also selling signed copies of my books in our store

We also have prepaid monthly meal plan gift subscriptions (1 month, 3 months, or 6 months) so you can give the gift of health while making it easy for them with a weekly menu, shopping list and exclusive recipes!

We've also got a few elephant charitable necklaces in our store, too!

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!

By the way, if you click through and purchase any of these items (or other items) on Amazon, you'll be supporting Happy Herbivore!

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: I made Scott buy me a stovetop pressure cooker last Christmas because so many people were blogging about them... and then I never used it. A few months later my friend, Chef AJ convinced me to buy an electric pressure cooker. LIFE CHANGE! I use it every. single. day. It's great in the summer — no hot stove required! And when I'm doing batch cooking — it uses an outlet, not the stove! More cooking space on the stove! Woo! 

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 I love mine and gave these out last year as a sort of "stocking stuffer." Everyone thanked me several times over. It was a popular gift. 

Cookware Set: I use Emerilware, Emeril's line of kitchen pots and pans. It's a splurge, but worth every penny! I also use this high-quality non-stick skillet for a few token dishes. I have a flat double nonstick broiler as well for pancakes. 

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

Happy shopping!

As you know, I'm terrible about doing reviews of books and products I receive. (My 2013 resolution is to stop accepting items for review!) Anyway, for the next few Sundays, I'm going to post reviews of all the swag I receive in case you're looking for ideas or considering these options as a gift :) Check back!
