It’s no secret that veganism is on the rise in the U.K. In fact, one in eight Britons is now vegan or vegetarian! Most of us have family or friends who have chosen to forego animal products, and would like to give them Christmas gifts that recognise and support their lifestyle. But if you’re not vegan yourself, it can be hard to know exactly what to buy or where to look.
To help you out, we’ve rounded up our five favourite gift ideas for the vegans in our lives.
Though there are more plant-based food options commonly available now than there ever have been, many vegans still prefer to cook much of their own food themselves. A stainless steel reusable lunch box is a great gift for friends who frequently take their lunch to work from home.
The beauty of these zero waste lunch boxes is that they can also be used for food shopping and storing leftovers. Check out this post on the many ways in which a reusable lunch box can be useful!
If you have friends and family who choose to walk the plant-based path, chances are they have a pretty good awareness of the environment and a desire to protect it. They are probably aware of the growing plastic pollution problem posing a threat to wildlife the world over.
A stainless steel reusable water bottle is a great gift to help them keep plastic water bottles out of waterways and landfills. Bonus: these bottles happen to be really beautiful as well!
Commitment to a life free of animal products extends beyond comestibles! Most vegans are very careful about buying personal care products that are strictly plant-derived, and most steer clear of products that are tested on animals, too.
These lovely soaps have a base of coconut oil, shea butter, and olive oil, with a gorgeous blend of essential oils. 100% vegan, and palm-oil free (because we have to look out for the orang-utans too).
Unfortunately, many of the mainstream toothpaste brands (Colgate, Aquafresh) still test on animals. Why not give your animal-loving friends some certified vegan, cruelty-free toothpaste to keep them smiling? All natural ingredients, fluoride free, and never ever tested on fluffy creatures.
If you’re still looking for vegan gift ideas, don’t worry! We have a whole range of beautiful vegan products. You’re sure to find something that will suit the plant-based loves in your life this year!
