With the Holidays fast approaching, you may be wondering, “What gifts should I get for my vegan friends?”
Vegans avoid using animal products. They don’t eat animal products, like meat and cheese. And they don’t wear or use animal products, like leather or mink (hello, makeup brushes!).
You might be unsure what gifts are vegan and cruelty free.
We’ve put together a list of the best gifts for vegans so you can confidently cross your vegan friends and family off your shopping list!
Vegan Purses or Bags
Nice leather purses and bags are a luxury vegans choose to avoid.
Thankfully, there are vegan “leather” options on the market today! A vegan bag or purse is an amazing gift for this holiday season.Vegans and non-vegans alike will love the styles and options available.
We’ve yet to meet a vegan who doesn’t love good food!
With the dietary restrictions that vegans face, they often miss out on the conventional yummy treats and eats that the rest of the world enjoys.
Getting the vegans in your life a food item, free of animal products, is a great way to show you care AND understand their lifestyle!
Need suggestions? Try…
- Vegan Gummy Bears (gummies of any kind usually have gelatin, an animal derived product)
- Alcohol! A nice wine, gin & tonic kit, brew your own beer kit, or a bottle of rum. No one ever said alcohol isn’t vegan.
- A food subscription box that offers vegan options
This gift box contains 24 delicious vegan cookies: six Chocolate Blackout, six Simply Sugar, and one dozen Oatmeal Chocolate Chip.It seriously doesn’t get better than this for vegan a treat! Even non-vegans will RAVE about it.
Vegan Beauty Products
Most conventional makeup and beauty products contain animal products or are tested on animals. Vegans want high quality makeup, too!
Luckily, there are plenty of options for vegan and cruelty-free beauty products, including makeup, makeup brushes, shampoo, lotions, and more!
Many vegans love receiving these thoughtful items because it shows you put in the effort to find products that fit their lifestyle!
Gift cards are always an easy gift because they allow the recipient to choose what they want!
You might try Target, a local movie theater, or even Walmart! Starbucks is another option. They offer a large variety of vegan beverages (Grande Soymilk Latte, anyone?), in addition to certified vegan food items, like their plain bagels.
Growing in popularity, experience gifts are a great way to gift your vegan loved ones an awesome time!
Companies offer experience gifts ranging from camping to fancy brunches to golf lessons and more. Additionally, you could gift a cooking class, a music lesson, or a concert.
Indoor skydiving is another great activity to gift to a vegan. Anyone, including vegans, can enjoy the adrenaline rush of a wind tunnel.
What Gift Should You Choose?
There are so many gift possibilities for vegans. You may be wondering, “How am I supposed to pick out the perfect vegan gift with so many options?”
Our advice? Reflect on the person you’re gifting to. Just like you would with a non-vegan, think about the person and their likes and interests. Base your gift on them and their unique personality!
