We love fruits and vegetables here at AICR. They're delicious, healthy and filled with cancer-fighting compounds, but realize sometimes an apple doesn't make the best gift. So we've found fruit and vegetable-inspired gifts that cover a range of budgets and styles.
They may not be edible, but these vegetable parchments by Margaret Dorfman are still delicious looking. All of her art is hand made, using real produce that's sliced and dried into brilliant, translucent creations. She doesn't need to add any artificial dyes -- each fruit or vegetable gets its gem-like color from its individual phytochemicals.
If you cook regularly chances are you use your chopping knives daily. For that cook in your life, this Kuhn Rikon set makes cutting, slicing and mincing a fun and colorful affair.
There are hundreds of healthy cookbooks out there. We've picked a few of our favorites that focus on fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains.

Along with your favorite herbs, you may want to include a way to cut them. Herb scissors make herb-snipping just a little easier, and they're small so can tuck away easily.
If you know someone who loves mangoes and does not have this item, then you're in luck. This pitter makes the mess and stickiness of eating a mango - packed with carotenoids and other cancer-fighting compounds -- begone.

If you need a reason to drink more tea, research has shown that some tea is rich in antioxidants.
Have someone in your life who loves cooking asian foods, or just eating with chopsticks? These coloful chopstick holders are shaped like our favorite stir-fry ingredients. Who wouldn't love this?
