As the holiday season is about the start, you may be wondering what to buy for vegan friends or some vegan gift ideas for your family and friends. Personally, I think the best gifts that make people really happy are the thoughtful ones. Especially small gifts are in general unexpected, which makes them special and meaningful. I’d like to share my own list of vegan gifts that are small, thoughtful and affordable.
Here are 7 affordable vegan-friendly gift ideas for everyone.
1- Vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics
Vegan and cruelty-free cosmetic brands are now almost everywhere. You can find them online or in small and big retail chains. You may buy soaps, shampoos, skincare or make-up products. It is a great way to show your mindfulness with a cruelty-free gift.
Here is the list of vegan and cruelty-free brand list from Peta.
2- Vegan Cookbook
Almost all vegans love trying new recipes and learning more about different cuisines. This makes buying a vegan cookbook a great idea for your friends and family members. You can buy vegan cookbooks in a store or vegan PDF books for your loved ones. My favorite is Dr. Greger’s How Not to Die Cookbook. You may write a little note like ‘This, hopefully, will add years to your beautiful life.’ and you will see a big smile on that person’s face. I guarantee it:)
3- Eco-friendly Mugs
Reusable and eco-friendly mugs are used not only for travel but also for going to work or a park, gym or riverside. Even though we cannot travel much these days, everyone still can make use of their eco-friendly mugs. They are handy, elegant and really thoughtful. They are a perfect gift for tea, coffee or smoothie lovers so that means they are for everyone.
4- Vegan Clothing
Vegan clothing means ethically made, eco-friendly, fair trade and sustainable clothing (and packaging) products. Your perfect vegan gift may be a simple hat, a pair of socks, blanket, tees and pullovers. You’ll be adding your thoughtfulness to these simple gifts by choosing ethical and sustainable brands. You will make your loved ones more than happy by taking care of nature with your vegan gifts.
5- Sustainable and biodegradable phone case
Our phones are something we touch and use the most now. Unfortunately, you see cheap and low-quality phone cases in many stores and you know that’s harmful to the people, to the animals and to the planet. The good news is now we have a huge variety of vegan phone cases that are biodegradable and sustainable. I’d say buying a sustainable, plant-based and high-quality phone case as a gift is an amazing, thoughtful gest. In addition to its benefits, they look hella good!
6- Vegan Posters
Personally I love frames and decorating my walls with nice pictures. I have given and received many picture frames and they always end up being the best gifts. What’s more, they are the easiest gifts ever to buy or make. You may find nice posters online and go to a print store in your town to print it. Then you choose a nice frame to put it in and here is your affordable and easy vegan gift! You can even design your own poster on canva.com.
7- Handmade Earth-Friendly Jewelry
When it comes to jewelry, there are too many options as you know. Giving your beloved ones hand-made, earth-friendly and recyclable jewelry is pretty thoughtful and responsible. You may find many ethical brands online or you can search some local stores to find hand-made and sustainable rings, necklaces, bracelets or earrings.
