Vegan Gift Ideas

Looking for vegan gifts for those on a plant-based diet or living a vegan lifestyle and don’t know where to start? Fret not! I’ve made this handy vegan gift guide for you!

Vegan Gift Guide

The holiday season is right upon us yet again and it’s time to take it easy, take care of ourselves, and eat way too much vegan food, as per usual. 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 or spirituality gifts). Sometimes, it’s also a great opportunity to treat a good friend or family member (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 for you that contain absolutely no animal products.

So without further ado, here are the best vegan gift ideas I could think of on a whim!

The best gifts for vegans

cold press juicer

The perfect gift for a health nut such as myself, a slow juicer is 100% sure to please any plant-based eater. Slow juicing means the fruits and vegetables are cold-pressed and retain all of their vitamins and nutrients and can be preserved for longer. Some can also make smoothies, nut milk, and ice cream and come with a bunch of recipes. You really cannot go wrong with this stainless steel baby! Along the same line, a pressure cooker or an air fryer both make for great gifts.

A sleep tracker

Another top pick! I personally fell in love with the Oura Ring and think any wearable sleep tracker would make such a great gift for anyone that’s health-minded and loves beautiful accessories. 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. But it is pricey, so I’m linking a cheaper option above for the ones who can’t be dishing out this kind of thoughtful gifts money. A great gadget for sure!

Vegan Protein Powder

I love me some vegan protein powder in my diet, and this one is especially good for the vegan coffee lovers who also work out. This Coffee-flavoured Protein Powder also has super pretty packaging and comes with all the benefits of protein and the taste of our favorite beverage – Covfefe, amirite? I blend a spoonful of nut butters together with it and it is by far my favorite vegan protein powder while I’m vegan muscle building.

The Best Outdoor Backpack

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 good gift for the traveling vegans or a gift for the yogi, but since I think it’s only available in Europe, I’m linking a similar option for my North American readers.

CBD products

For those wanting to be zen and having trouble sleeping, CBD products make great vegan christmas gifts as they can be a little difficult to justify as an expense for those in need of it. 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 thoughtful present for a vegan pal that’s a little anxious.

Vegan Snacks!

You can’t go wrong with some sweet edible vegan food gifts for your plant-based pals! I love all-natural, yummy and healthy treats like energy bars, chock full of fruits and nuts and sweet treats. These are all free of synthetic coloring, artificial preservatives, artificial seasoning and GMO. The perfect treat for anyone vegan or non-vegan alike!

A vegan cookbook

My friend Kirsten is a vegan chef who cooks delicious vegan meals and shares many of her vegan recipes for free on her social media. She also has several vegan diet cookbooks and her latest ones will help your vegan friend travel from the comfort of their home. A great vegan gift idea for those who enjoy vegan cooking!

Yoga apparel and accessories

For the active vegans out there, you really cannot go wrong with a pair of yoga pants, and to me, Lululemon is at the top of the top when it comes to quality and fit. Yes, they are a bit pricier, but that’s why they make such an amazing gift. I rarely can bring myself to dish out the cost of a pair of leggings, but DO gift me one 😀 Many of them are also made of recycled plastic bottles.

Pretty much anything from iHerb

iHerb is a gold mine for the best vegan gifts and vegan products that are difficult to find elsewhere. I especially like their bath products, essential oils, cruelty-free beauty products, and the vegan snack selection that include vegan cheese and vegan chocolate (I love me some dark chocolate!), but they also have ready-made vegan gift baskets 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. When all else fails, you can also get a gift card.

A lovely Vegan Bag

For the vegan fashionistas out there, Etsy has so many beautiful plant-based leather bags, wallets, passport holders and scarves that are of excellent quality. All faux leather materials are ethically sourced, cruelty-free and PETA-approved and make for a great present. I’ve had mine for over a year and the vegan leather is extremely durable too.

Ethical Fashion Basics

Ethical Clothing Brands

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, and make ideal gifts. They have plain t-shirts, some underwear, some yoga pants and also really great bamboo toothbrushes. The whole modal collection is heavenly. The perfect vegan gift and a great addition for those who like to be cozy.

vegan candles!

Beautifully-packaged vegan candles are always such a nice present, especially for the cold winter months ahead. With evocative and heart-warming perfumes like white flint + roasted vanilla or butter sprinkle + dough , the AMcandlesDE really caught my attention this Holiday season and are the perfect decor and ambience enhancers for anyone. Alternatively, if you’re on a budget stretch, you might be surprised to learn that most Yankee Candles are actually vegan! Bring out the cozy blankets and tea! The glass jars make for cute storage afterward. Perfect for the festive season.

Organic Cotton Undies


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 YOUunderwear on Etsy and I love 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.
