30 Gift Ideas for Your Vegan Loved Ones
Are you on the lookout for that special gift for a family member or friend that’s vegan? We assure you that you’re in the right place! We have prepared 30 gift ideas for you to choose from when that next important day is coming, whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, or just a Thursday when you want to show them your appreciation. So, let’s start our list of 30 gift ideas for your vegan loved ones:
- A box of luscious vegan chocolate truffles
- A grow-your-own aromatic herbs kit
It’s like a garden, but for your kitchen countertop. They are perfect for anyone that doesn’t have a yard but enjoys some fresh herbs in their cooking.
- Soy wax candles
What’s more vegan than a soy wax candle? They are lovely decor pieces that make a room smell wonderful, with the added bonus of coziness.
- A vegan cookbook
Help them expand their cooking horizons with a nice vegan cookbook. Then you can benefit from what they have learned when you come over for dinner next time. Win-win!
- Make a donation in their name
You can even virtually adopt an animal for them, and your friend is going to receive pictures and updates from the beautiful soul you are helping.
- One of the 18 Ben and Jerry’s vegan ice cream flavors
Watch a movie together, while devouring a whole tub of vegan ice cream. Yum! There are numerous brands that do vegan ice cream, so we will only name a few – So Delicious, Oatly, and there’s even one made out of avocado!
- A countertop sprouter
They make sprouting way easier, and some of them also look really cute. Sprouting is a great way of increasing the absorption of iron, so they are a healthy addition to any diet.
- A quality blender or food processor
If you want to spoil your loved one, a really good blender or food processor would be the way to go. We promise they are going to treasure and appreciate it.
- An air fryer
They are so versatile and loved by people who have them – the only problem is that they won’t stop talking about how much they love their new air fryer and how you need to try their air-fried potatoes.
- Bath bombs
For all the bath lovers out there, some bath bombs are the perfect fizzy gift. Just make sure you choose some vegan ones. If you are feeling crafty, you can even make them yourself!
- A subscription for vegan snacks
Offer them the experience of a taste test – it’s not only delicious but also surprisingly fun. You can opt for a one-time delivery, or for a whole year of monthly goodies.
- A nice vegan handbag
To offer a fashionable and cruelty-free home to all their essential belongings, a handbag or a backpack would work wonders.
- Cruelty-free vegan makeup
If they are into makeup, we are convinced they would love some new eyeshadow pallets or an interesting lipstick shade.
- A tofu press
Such a quintessentially vegan gift. Treat your loved one to a quality tofu press, because they are probably using some old books to press their tofu at the moment.
- A really nice tea or coffee selection
An excellent selection of teas or coffees would be greatly appreciated. Add some spices or syrups to make it even more special. And if you are into baking, some vegan muffins would pair amazingly well.
- Vegan novelty socks
A fun gift for your vegan friend – socks, or another type of clothing, with cute drawings of tofu, broccoli, carrots, or avocados.
- Vegan protein bars
So many brands to choose from, made with soy protein, hemp seeds, or nut butters – they are specially fitted for that friend that easily gets hangry. Our favorites are the ones from Larabar, Kind, Clif, and Nakd.
- Essential oil diffuser lamp
What’s better than a nice smelling home? Choose from a multitude of scents, like lavender, rose, orange, or peppermint.
- Cozy blanket
The perfect accessory to curl up on the sofa with a big bowl of popcorn for movie night. Just make sure it’s not made out of wool or another type of animal hair. Maybe pair it with a hot air popcorn machine?
- Faux leather wallet
A vegan wallet to keep your friend’s money nice and safe, while keeping them stylish!
- A dainty necklace
Who wouldn’t like to receive a cute piece of jewelry? You can choose one that’s easy to layer, so they can wear it every day. There’s even the option to engrave it, to make it extra special.
- A selection of vegan cheeses
There are plenty of nice cheeses to choose from, and we strongly recommend looking out for small artisanal vegan cheese shops – they are the best. But you can never go wrong with Miyoko’s or Treeline.
- Coconut bowls
They are cute, Instagramable, sustainable, and biodegradable – perfect for your minimalist friend, or the one that loves to share their food on social media.
- A yoga mat
Encourage your friend’s good habits by providing them with a really nice yoga mat. You can get some biodegradable ones, or some made out of recycled materials.
- A painting of an animal
You can look for one that’s already painted, or you can contact an artist to create a beautiful piece for your friend.
- Vegan footwear
If you know their shoe size, you can get them some ethically made, leather-free shoes, made from pineapple, cork, or even mushrooms!
- A salt lamp
Looks pretty, has a mystical aura, and creates a beautiful ambient light. It really does taste like salt, but we don’t recommend using it for cooking.
Any cooking enthusiast is going to be happy with a nice set of new condiments. Venture into some spice mixes for new cooking journeys.
- A nice vegan wine
Wine isn’t always vegan, unfortunately, but there are plenty of vegan wines and a quick search on Barnivore will solve that problem.
- Your time
Time is the most valuable gift you can offer someone. Have a meaningful and loving conversation with them, or take a nice walk together. You can even go to an animal sanctuary together. They will surely remember and appreciate it.
