Vegan Gifts - Top 10 Ideas For Christmas 2020
Vegan gifts can be a little difficult to decide on.
With an increasing number of us choosing veganism, the chances are you have a vegan on your list to buy for this Christmas.
Maybe you yourself are vegan and want to gift accordingly. Either way it can be hard to know what to give this season, so follow our vegan gifts list for a sure-fire way to please everybody this holiday.
1. Soulvegan Bakery - Vegan Brownie Box
What do you buy for that person who has everything? Well, we think you can never go wrong with a great vegan brownie box, especially when it’s delivered straight to your (or their) door!
Soulvegan Bakery offers vegan gifts in the form of, refined sugar free, gluten free brownies with chia seeds, all whilst delivering the classic gooey brownie we love.
With flavours that include Raspberry and White Chocolate, and Salted Pretzel and Caramel, we can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled when these drop through their door this festive season. (Prices vary)
2. The Coconut Bowl Shop – Coconut Bowls
There’s no better feeling than supporting small, local business this year, and The Coconut Bowl Shop is a great place to do just that.
These coconut bowls from TCBS are made from eco-friendly coconut shells and are natural and organic, as well as being super Instagrammable – think smoothie bowls.
These would make for great vegan gifts this Christmas and are available to buy either as a single bowl, set of two, or set of four.
Plus, our goBambu zero-waste Reusable Bamboo Cutlery Set (£7.99) would make a great gift alongside the bowls!
3. goBambu - Handmade Vegan Soap
Gift toiletries differently this Christmas with our Handmade Vegan Soap. These cruelty-free soaps can be used for body, face and even as a shaving soap, thanks to its rich lather.
Our soap comes in five scents, including Lavender, and Bamboo Charcoal, and is ideal for acne, dry, sensitive skin and even sunburns – try the soothing Aloe Vera scent for this.
The nourishing and moisturising formula is kinder to skin which, when we are all washing our hands more than ever, feels like a treat.
Moreover, as well as being cruelty-free and vegan, our soaps are sent in plastic free packaging. So, ditch the liquid soap in plastic bottles this Christmas and give our environmentally friendly soaps a go instead. (from £4.99 per 100g bar).
4. The Letterbox Larder - Letterbox Larder Gift Box
The Letterbox Larder are a company based in Northern Ireland who specialise in seasonings and vinegars.
They offer a vegetarian/vegan seasoning box which, as the name suggests, can be delivered straight through your lucky recipients’ letterbox.
They will receive three vegan friendly seasonings, including vegan/veggie sprinkle, umami mushroom and moroccan, great for adding depth and flavour to any plant-based dish! Perfect vegan gifts! (£9.99).
5. Wool and the Gang – Lovething Sweater Kit
What better gift than a new hobby for the vegan in your life this Christmas?
This beginner knitting kit includes Wool and the Gang’s Tina Tape yarn, which is made from eucalyptus tree fibre, harvested using renewable energy. Cool, right?
As well as the yarn, the kit includes knitting needles, the Lovething Sweater pattern, and a needle to sew up your jumper. Wool and the Gang also have helpful tutorial videos to help with techniques.
The Tina Tape yarn comes in a variety of colours and is lightweight, meaning you can wear your freshly knitted vegan sweater all year around! (£78.00-£89.00, depending on size).
6. Hazel and Blue Candles – Let Your Light Shine Soy Candle
This vegan candle is handmade from eco-friendly, natural 100% soy wax and fragrance oils of grapefruit and mimosa.
Cosy and calming - the perfect Christmas vegan gifts after the year we’ve all had! The quote is stamped into the white porcelain, so after the candle has burned, you’re left with a lovely porcelain trinket bowl, perfect for earrings and jewellery.
Hazel and Blue also offer a personalised card with your candle to make your gift really special this festive season. (£27.00). For a more hands-on gift, take a look at their vegan candle making kits too!

The aprons are eco-friendly and can be personalised in a range of print colours, including hot pink, navy and black.

This book includes information on how to live cruelty-free everyday – with tips on food and household products, clothing and cosmetics, we think this book would make a great gift for a newbie vegan, but would also provide inspiration and fresh ideas for any long-term vegan too.
Check out Joy’s other vegan books as well, including Vegan Snacks for delicious treats, and 15 Minute Vegan on a Budget – great for students. (£12.99).
