Looking for presents for vegans and don’t know where to start? Fret not! I’ve made this handy vegan gift guide for you!
The holiday season is right upon us yet again and it’s time for taking it easy, taking care of ourselves, and eating way too much food. While I’m not exactly fond of Christmas and the mass-consumerism it entails, I know some people love to treat their loved ones with gifts (and hopefully VEGAN gifts) – especially so this year as it may not be possible to actually meet with them. Sometimes, it’s also a great opportunity to treat others (or yourself) with something you/they were missing in their brand new home, for example, wink wink, not talking about myself at all here. Today I wanted to compile some great vegan gift ideas.
Here’s what I think the best vegan presents are for all budgets this holiday season.
The best gifts for vegans
The ultimate gift for a health nut such as myself, a slow juicer is 100% sure to please. This one by Juicy Retreats has amazingly low price tag for such a quality juicer. Slow juicing means the fruits and vegetables are cold-pressed and retain all of their vitamins and nutrients and can be preserved for longer. The Ultra 8000 can also make smoothies, nut milk and frozen desserts and comes with a bunch of recipes. You really cannot go wrong with this baby!
I fell in love with my Oura Ring and think it would make such an amazing gift for anyone that’s health-minded and loves beautiful jewellery. This gorgeous smart ring is made of titanium and carbon coating and is hypoallergenic and waterproof and connects via an app to help track and understand better the wearer’s sleep pattern. A great gadget for sure!
I’ve tooted the Wayk’s horn recently and with reason. It’s a beautiful modular backpack made of recycled material and designed right here in Berlin. The bottom part is a protective camera bag that can be detailed and made into a day bag. It has a yoga mat strap, it’s waterproof and it looks great. A wondering gift for the travelling vegans.
For those wanting to be zen and having trouble sleeping, CBD products make an excellent gift as they can be a little difficult to justify as an expense for the ones in need of it. Canzon has so prime quality CBD oil, balm and vape oil and I can’t recommend them enough. I’ve written a full post about how CBD has helped me cope with stress, anxiety and insomnia and I think it’s an extremely useful present.
You can’t go wrong with some sweet edible vegan gifts! I love these all-natural, yummy and healthy treats from the great folks at Chimpanzee. My favourites are the energy bars, chock full of fruits and nuts and sweet treats. These are all free of synthetic colouring, artificial preservatives, artificial seasoning and GMO. The perfect treat for anyone vegan or non-vegan alike!
I tried the safety razor. I wanted to love it so much, I wanted not to create all the non-recyclable waste that my trusty Venus did. And it didn’t work for me at all. Thankfully I discovered Friction Free Shaving (short version: FFS, haha!), a UK based (but they deliver outside of the UK) razor subscription service that cost £9 a month (or every two months, depending at which frequency you shave). The blades can be returned to them for adequate recycling. It’s gorgeous and works a charm! For those seeking practical vegan gifts!
For those in North American, all the Rose Buddha apparels are manufactured in an eco-responsible and ethical manner and I am all over their leggings and mala beads. On top of that, they are made in my neck of the wood in Quebec, Canada, so if you are reading this and you are from there, make sure this is where you order your yoga gifts from! The mala are handmade by women artisans, and each piece of jewellery is created with the intention that whoever wears it shall be guided by love, be that through thoughts, words or actions. Talk about wonderful, meaningful vegan presents!
For those based in Europe, I really love the Moon Child yoga apparel.
iHerb is a gold mine for the best vegan gifts that are difficult to find elsewhere. I especially like their bath products and the vegan snack selection, but they also have ready-made gift sets and a great selection of make-up brushes. Alternatively you can also shop my favourites and get $11 off your first order of $40 or more.
For the vegan fashionistas out there, Lee Coren handmakes beautiful plant-based leather bags, wallets, passport holders and scarves that are of extreme quality. All materials are ethically sourced, cruelty-free and PETA-approved and make for a great present. I’ve had my Lee Coren bag for over a year and it is extremely durable too.
I’ve been a big fan of Organic Basics since they first reached out to me and I think they make amazing presents as they are beautifully (and sustainably!) packaged and their basic cuts pretty much will please anyone, both men and women. They have plain t-shirts, some underwear, some yoga pants and also really great bamboo toothbrushes. The whole modal collection is heavenly.
Everyone knows the benefits of good bacteria, but not everyone knows that probiotics aren’t all made equal. The Seed Daily Synbiotic has a proprietary system that increases absorbability and the whole packaging is either compostable or reusable. Giving the gift of a healthy gut to your loved ones is definitely a good idea!
A cruelty-free brand with snazzy packaging and invigorating scents, Mio has an amazing range of pre-selected gifts for the ones who love to pamper. The whole Mio range is vegan and contains no parabens, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colourants, sodium laureth or lauryl sulphate, xenoestrogens, phthalates or PEGs. They also redistribute some of their profit to a charity and offer free worldwide shipping. An all-around feel-good vegan present option!
I’m always happy to get yoga pants! Since I get to try a fair few as a yoga influencer I can tell you that THESE K-DEER LEGGINGS ARE THE BEST. EVER. They are soft and long and flattering, and the best part is they don’t have a seam at the front, so there isn’t a chance of a cameltoe. Sales from the Erika Stripe (pictured) support St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center, who is dedicated to the humane treatment of animals. Another total win-win!
I get asked a lot how I manage to stay connected to the Internet everywhere I travel to, and this little device is the answer to any worry you may have and one of the best vegan travel gifts. The Skyroam Solis dual LTE Hotspot is the ultimate travel companion for digital nomads and internet junkies such as myself, allowing the user to access super fast and unlimited 4G internet on up to five devices, for 24 hours at a time, and in over 100 countries. It also doubles up as a 6000 mAh power bank, which is really just the icing on the cake. Staying charged and connected has never been so easy!
Another lovely vegan gift idea for the health nuts, The Ylumi products are wonderful supplements made of traditional Chinese herbs, selected vital mushrooms, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The Immunity and Glow Set comprises of “Purity” and “Beauty”, a cocktail of wonderful herbs and supplements that will make sure anyone gets through the Winter looking and feeling fantastic. All of those are 100% vegan and come in beautiful glass packaging, making it a super elegant present and yet another great stocking stuffer. These are also made in Germany, which I obviously love!
Beautifully-packaged vegan candles are always such a nice present, especially for the cold Winter months ahead. With evocative and heart-warming perfumes like English rose, powder and soft wood, or black pomegranate and almond, the Forest Hill Candles really caught my attention this Holiday season and are the perfect decor and ambience enhancers for anyone. Bring out the cozy blankets and tea!
When all else fails and you have no idea what to get for a vegan gift, comfy and cozy organic underwear is the way to go for anyone! I recently discovered DILLING and I am loving all of their organic cotton undies. The prices and materials are fair, organic and sustainable and made in Europe, and the undies are super comfortable and sure to make anyone happy. I more or less live in their hipster briefs.
