This holiday season, are you looking for gifts to give a vegan friend who follows a cruelty-free lifestyle? Or perhaps you are one yourself, and are looking for gifts that support and represent your way of life?
Searching for gifts that are 100 percent free of animal derivatives may be a bit of a challenge and requires some intentional shopping. Thankfully, you’ve come to the right place.
Below is our gift guide worth considering if you’re looking for a great gift for vegetarians or vegans.
For the Vegan Domestic Diva
To some, going vegan is matter of dietary preference; to others, it’s a lifestyle choice. Whichever side of the fence they may sit on, your favorite vegan will surely be happy to receive these gifts for their home:
Food-themed vegan gift baskets filled with a healthy vegan snack pack (which is already a gift basket on its own) and one or two vegan cookbooks (like the Oh She Glows Vegan Cookbook by Angela Liddon or Jean-Philippe Cyr’s The Buddhist Chef cookbook).
A gardening starter pack filled with all they need to grow their own food garden:
For the On-the-Go Eco-warrior
The best gifts for vegans are those that respect their plant-based diet and their love for the environment.
Do you have a vegan colleague? Make lunchtime more eco-friendly for them with a sustainable bento box, a set of bamboo reusable cutlery, and a reusable drink container (like the Hydro Flask travel coffee flask).
Most vegans are also big on zero-waste and plastic-free shopping. Give them something they’ll find useful when they go on their plant-based grocery run: reusable grocery bags, mesh produce bags, beeswax wraps, and Pyrex glass containers in various sizes.
For the Earth-conscious Fashionista
Is your intended recipient vegan and proud? Let them wear their advocacies with vegan-themed statement tees (like Herbivore or Vegan T-shirts) and tanktops, which also double as conversation starters.
Make the medium the message with animal-friendly synthetic leather or canvas wallets and purses, vegan-friendly shoes like (TOMS sneakers and loafers)
We’ve rounded up the best gifts for vegans in the list below. It’s by no means definitive. If you are looking for great vegan gift ideas that are handmade, try Etsy as well.
