10 Christmas Gifts Ideas for the Vegan in Your Life

 Colorful lights are twinkling in the streets, fragrant pine trees abound at the market, it is time to face it; Christmas is right around the corner. It seems to creep up on me every year. If you are a late shopper like me, it may be daunting to come up with gift ideas for everyone at the last minute. If you have a vegan in your life and you are feeling uninspired, here is a list of great gift ideas:

1.  Chocolate

This one does not need much explanation. Everyone loves chocolate. Right? Vegans shun cow’s milk but thankfully, dairy-free options abound.

Want proof? Here’s a guide to vegan chocolate made by VegNews magazine.

If you are too lazy to actually go out to buy your gifts, do not fret. Vegan Cuts offers a Vegan Chocolate Dream Box with free shipping to anywhere in the US for only $32. You are guaranteed to receive it for Christmas if you order before December 12.

2. Cheese

Dairy cheese may not be suited for shipping but vegan cheese is! You can give the gift of cheese to your favorite vegan and not even leave the house.

Myoko’s Kitchen’s offers a variety of cheeses ranging from fresh mozzarella, double cream garlic herb to aged English sharp farmhouse. All cheeses sell for $12 or less.

3. Dates

Dates are a great fruit, they last long, they are nutritious and most of all they are so delicious. They make a great gift for health conscious vegans. If you are looking to get your hands on the best nature’s candy, look no further than 7hotdates.com. These California dates are organic, sweet and gooey, just like they should be. You can choose between different varieties, medjool, honey, deglet noors, halawai and many more. They ship both to the US and Canada.  

4. Wine

If you are looking for something a bit fancier, wine is the perfect gift to give. However, many wines are not vegan, which can complicate things. Thankfully, some companies like the Organic Wine Company offer fully vegan wines that can be shipped to most US states. Their Christmas Pack includes six bottles for the reasonable price of $99.

If you are not a US citizen, the Barnivore Vegan Alcohol Directory is there to help determine which wines at your local shop are vegan.  

5. Subscriptions

This gift keeps on giving. Who does not like to receive something in the mail every month?

If your vegan is a foodie, you can get a subscription to a vegan snack box with Vegan Cuts or UrthBox with free shipping all over the US.

If the person you are giving a gift to likes to read, you can get a gift subscription to a vegan magazine like VegNews or Thrive.

6. Donate to Charity

Ask any vegan, the best gift of all is one that benefits animals. Consider donating to animal organizations, animal sanctuaries or local shelters. Here is a list of animal sanctuaries worldwide.

You can also donate to Faunalytics.org, an organization that provides research on effective advocacy on  behalf of our animal friends.   

7.  Fashion

Vegan shirts are a definite must have for summer and working out. After all, they are both cute and comfortable. You can find shirts with great designs and witty catchphrases here, here and here.

If you are looking for something a bit dressier, Vaute Couture and Delikate Rayne are both great options for ethical fashionable pieces.  

8. Jewellery

If “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, these beautiful pieces of jewellery will be “a vegan’s best friend”.  

The social media personality Bonny Rebeca has recently collaborated with YCL Jewellery to produce a vegan collection. All the jewellery is ethically made and shipped with cruelty-free and minimal packaging.

Luna Light Jewellery is another great line if you are looking for slightly cheaper options.  

9. Books

It is no secret that vegans love food. A lot.

A recipe book will always be a great gift. You can find a great selection of vegan cookbooks at your local Barnes and Nobles but here are some of my personal favorites:

Oh She Glows by Angela Liddon and Thug Kitchen by Matt Holloway and Michelle Davis.   

10. Eco-friendly kitchen tools

Food just tastes better served on pretty plates and bowls does it not? A nice set is a must-have for Instagram pictures anyway.

I am in love with these unique, ethically crafted, eco-friendly bowls made out of coconut shells from coconutbowls.com.  

 

I hope this list got you inspired. However, remember the greatest gift of all is love and compassion for all living creatures.

Merry Christmas to all vegans and non-vegans alike!
