If you are looking for ideas on food gifts for vegetarians, you can see here some of the best ideas on food gifts for vegetarians. Vegetarians food gifts may not be necessarily vegan food gifts (which I am planning to post soon), although some of these maybe vegan too.
Vegetarians use dairy products in their diet (unlike vegans) and so the food gifts for vegetarians can include dairy products which may include milk, butter, vegetarian cheese (cheese free from animal rennet) etc and vegetarians use honey too (many vegans do not use honey).
So here you can see some of the best food gifts for vegetarians which you can gift for Christmas or any special occasion as you wish.
See here my post on the best gift ideas for vegetarians and vegans which include more gift ideas other than food gifts.
Ideas For Best Food Gifts For Vegetarians For Christmas
Fresh Fruits Baskets
You can fill an empty gift basket with fresh fruits if you like with a card or note, as fresh fruits arranged in gift baskets always make lovely gifts for Christmas.
If you have your own homegrown fresh fruits, preparing a fruit basket using a pretty gift basket will be the best!
I recommend using seasonal fruits that will remain fresh for long, and also not very delicate fruits.
Some ideas for fruits to make great fruit baskets are red and green apples, pears, oranges, pomegranates, nectarines, plums, pineapple, sweet lime etc.
Dried Fruits And Nuts Baskets
Dried fruits and nuts basket always make great gourmet gift baskets provided no one has a nut allergy. So if there is no nut allergy, you can easily buy a dried fruits and nuts basket online which you can gift for anyone who is a vegetarian.
You can also make your own gift baskets by filling an empty gift basket using properly packed dried fruits and nuts of your choice. Some ideas for dried fruits include raisins, dates, apricots, dried kiwis etc and ideas for nuts include raw or roasted nuts like cashews, almonds, pistachios etc.
As I mentioned, you can use either raw nuts or you can use toasted (with or without salt) nuts, or you can even get sweetened nuts or candied nuts if you are looking for sweet food.
If you can’t find a gift basket with dried fruits and nuts of your choice, just buy the dried fruits and nuts of your choice, pack them properly and then fill an empty gift basket with these to make a great food basket!

Fresh Vegetable Baskets
If you are looking for food gift baskets who is health conscious or on a healthy diet for weight loss, you can make great gift baskets using fresh vegetables from your own garden or store bought fresh veggies.
I recommend selecting only the best and finest vegetables that are colorful too.
Vegetables like squashes, artichokes, carrots, fresh kale leaves, collard greens, fresh lettuce, large purple eggplants, colorful peppers like red, green and yellow sweet peppers etc make great additions to a vegetable gift basket.
Although officially not vegetables, you may also include fresh and raw corn ears (which is actually a grain) and pumpkins and tomatoes (which are actually fruits).
Homemade Baked Goodies
In a good quality empty gift basket, fill up your homemade baked goodies like bread, cookies, cakes etc.
Some popular and trendy baked goodies for a food basket are banana bread, banana nut bread, oatmeal raisin cookies, homemade chocolate brownies etc.
Many vegetarians eat eggs, however some vegetarians do not eat eggs, so if you know that the person who you want to give the gift do not eat eggs, you can make all these eggless using egg free dessert recipes.
You can find online cookbooks for egg free baking.
Chocolates And Candies
Chocolates and candies make one of the most popular food gifts, if the person is not dieting.
You can find a lot of chocolate and candies online and many of them are made with quality ingredients. However, many of these may contain eggs, so they will be suitable gifts for vegetarians who eat eggs.
Let us see here some of the most popular and trendy food gifts for vegetarians (great for vegetarians who eat eggs as some of these may include eggs)
