Looking for the best vegan gifts for a family member, friend, or loved one? Then look no further! We’ve compiled a list of our favourite vegan gifts that you can buy online.
Luckily for all the vegans out there, we no longer have to hide our emotions as we open up yet another vegan cookbook by some Z-list celebrity or we get another pair of socks that are actually made of wool.
We appreciate the thought and time that goes into present buying. But it can go SO wrong!
Therefore, we present the ultimate vegan gift guide.
Who is our vegan gift guide for?
You may have landed here for one of the following reasons:
- You have a vegan friend or relative and you have no idea what to buy them
- You are vegan and looking for gift ideas to send to your family and friends
- You are looking to buy yourself a gift (go you!)
- You are just generally clueless about gifting
Whatever your reason, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together our favourite gift ideas that will please any vegan, or non-vegan alike!
What are good vegan gifts to buy online?
There are now SO many vegan-friendly presents that you can buy on the internet. Everyone is selling something. So how do we know what is worth buying?
You can check out the reviews, but make sure to look out for websites that use an external review site for their products (like Trustpilot) as they are much more trustworthy and less likely to be rigged.
Where can I buy vegan gifts?
We recommend buying directly from online vegan businesses, when possible. You can usually do this from their websites, Etsy, Facebook shops, etc. Try to use Amazon as a last resort, because they take profit from smaller hard-working companies.
Our vegan gift list below features plenty of 100% vegan businesses as well as businesses who are helping further the vegan cause in their own way.
What is a good gift for a vegan?
Well, let’s begin with what isn’t a good gift for a vegan – anything that contains animal products, or is made unethically, and/or unsustainably.
This includes food items that may contain dairy, eggs, honey, meat, etc. And also, if you buy clothing that is made of wool, leather, suede, silk, animal-based glue, etc.
So, a good gift for a vegan is a vegan gift!
But what do vegans like?
Have a think about your vegan giftee, what kinds of things do they enjoy doing? Have they ever mentioned wanting to try something? What makes them happy?
Are they a chocolate lover? A keen cook? Do they like wearing make-up? Are they always wearing the latest fashion trends?
We’ve organised the presents into handy categories so you can find the ideal vegan gift based on things they like or their personality.
