I recommend both the restaurant and the cookbook:

The Native Foods Restaurant Cookbook

Vegan With a Vengeance, seconded.

Unlike most vegan cookbooks, it's not full of lame salads.

Vegetarian Planet is wonderful.

I'm an unabashed omnivore, but I love La Dolce Vegan.

I'm a fan of the Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen and the Voluptuous Vegan.

The Rebar cookbook. Some recipes with eggs and cheese, but a considerable number of vegan recipes. I quite like it.

Vegan Vittles. As a non-vegan, it got me interested in cooking, not just vegan cooking, because it had so many vegan meat and cheese recipes (later expanded upon in The Uncheese Cookbook). Lots of truly original and hearty dishes. There's nothing else like it. The only problem might be that if your office mate is vegan, they should already have it.

I'm a carnivore and I gave that book to my vegan-eating-PETA-working friend and she LoveLoveLoved it!

Third Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. Only because you might reap the benefits of being a taste tester.

However, it's not used as frequently as Vegan with a Vengeance.

I love/like many of the books mentioned above, but as a present, I would go with Vegan Cupcakes as well.

I use the vegan cupcakes one all the time, and I am not a vegan, nor are most of the people I serve them to. That chocolate cupcake recipe is amazing.

I like the older Vegetarian Times cookbooks, which have lots of vegan recipes.

It isn't a strictly vegan cookbook, and its name might turn off some vegans, but it shouldn't. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, by Deborah Madison, is vast and encyclopedic, has loads upon loads of vegan recipes, includes details on cooking every variety of vegetable and fruit, and is probably the best cookbook that I've ever owned.

nth recommendation for Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. I gave it to some very good friends of mine last year and they still can't stop talking about how wonderful it is.

Sinfully Vegan is full of the most fabulous dessert recipes I have ever had, vegan or not.

I am also rather fond of The Uncheese Cookbook.
