I'm buying a gift for someone who loves sticky rice and wants to be able to make it quickly. Do I buy a rice cooker (any particular recommendations)? Or do I go for the slightly sexier instant pot?

If you can afford the instant pot go for that or an other similar digital pressure cooker .
They are hugely more versatile than just a rice cooker.
I was able to get rid of my rice cooker after getting my IP which I love and use more and more .

Oh really? biscuit? I've been looking into it and I've just seen some reports the IP was not great for sticky rice and lots saying it burned their rice... Is that not your experience?

I think you just need to experiment with the IP and when I cook rice I just use the manual setting for less time as I prefer it to using rice setting. Never tried to cook sticky rice though just normal and risotto.
I can't recommend the Ip more though , I use it for so many things now as it's so simple and quick and versatile as I've been experimenting...
