For a lot of people, they think veganism is just a diet, but veganism is more than that, it is all about reducing the suffering of animals.
A real vegan not only doesn’t eat animal products, they also don’t use products that were made with animal ingredients. So obviously no real fur and leather, but there are some subtle ingredients that you may not even realize are non-vegan. For example, some hair gels use gelatin which is made from the boiling of animal bones, skin, and other parts. Non-vegans aren’t aware, but most vegans would be. If your gift contained gelatin, some vegans might bring it up to you, but some might feel uncomfortable receiving this gift and they might just give it away later on. To avoid either of these situations, here I’ll suggest to you 15 cool gift ideas for a vegan, they’re good for all kinds of occasions.
This is the classic gift that fits anyone who has hair. Unfortunately a lot of shampoos and conditions have non-vegan ingredients such as milk-derived biotin, and the average person probably wouldn’t be able to tell whether that’s vegan or not just by reading the label. This why I love the Dessert Essence shampoo and conditioner, they are 100% vegan. They use ingredients like shea butter and organic coconut oil, they are also soy, wheat, and gluten free.
2. Hand-Made Vegan Soap
This is a soap that is made with all-natural vegan ingredients, it’s suitable for all skin types, it can be used to wash hands, face, or in the shower. They use Spanish olive oil in the soap, it cleanses without removing any of your skin’s natural oils, this keeps your skin from getting too dry.
3. Fruit Couch pillow
The fruit couch pillow gift can work for practically anyone of any gender and age. Also great if your friend just moved into a new apartment or something and it’s a great gift to lift up their new place with something decorative. The pillows are soft and comfy, they come in a variety of “fruits” patterns such as watermelon, kiwi, lime, and orange.
4. Bowls with Fruit Patterns
This can really work well as a gift especially if the vegan you’re giving the gift to is a fruitarian, or a raw till 4 vegan. But most vegans tend to eat a lot of fruit, so it’s a great and dandy gift idea that can work with any occasion. These ceramic bowls are made with non-toxic material, and come in a variety of different fruit patterns, my favorite is the watermelon!
5. NutriBullet Pro Personal-Sized Blender
This small blender has 900 watts of motor power and can blend and mix fruits and other ingredients into a smooth and consistent shake in about 10 seconds or less. It is ideal as a gift for people who are focused on eating healthy. It can also be used to make ice cream with frozen fruit.

6. Yonanas Machine- Turns Frozen Fruit Into Ice Cream
This machine makes creamy vanilla ice cream out of frozen bananas, or you can use other frozen fruits too, you can make sorbets with berries and melons. This is a great gift to give someone who wants to lose weight, because the desserts you create with Yonanas is made with 100% fruit, so it’s low in calories, high in fiber, high in vitamins and anti-oxidants, and high in taste and flavor. I bet you will be surprised at how similar it tastes to real ice cream. I have written a full review about this product, you can check it out here:
7. Vegetable Spiralizer
A vegetable spiralizer is a kitchen tool that lets you turns certain vegetables and fruits into spirals, or noodles. They’re usually pretty inexpensive and is great for encouraging healthy eating. A lot of raw vegans use this tool to make spiralized noodles instead of cooked spaghetti. It is a great gift to people who are into weight loss, because spiralized vegetables are low in calories and fat. There are many different styles of vegetable spiralizers, to see which one suits you, check out my buying guide here:
8. Water Filter “Waterfall”
People always say to drink lots of water, the body is made up of about 2/3 water, it’s important for us to stay hydrated. The “Waterfall” water filter has such an elegant and modern design, coconut shells are used in the filtration process. You will love the great tasting water, and all your soups will be tastier too.
9. Digital Kitchen Scale
A must-have for people who are passionate about making good food in the kitchen. A lot of recipes call for exact weight measurements and this will be very useful. It measures anything from 0.1 ounces to 22 pounds, it has 4 modes (ounces, grams, mililiters, pounds.)
10. Vegan Cookbook – Recipes for 2
Give this to your girlfriend or boyfriend, and you will also benefit when she/he tries out the recipes and you get to eat them afterwards. There are 172 pages and 125 recipes in this cook book, the recipes are portion sized for 2 people. Great idea to give to your special partner.
11. Micro Greens Growing Kit
Who says you need your own big garden in the backyard to grow your own food? Give the gift of super-foods, the nutrition in micro baby greens is many times higher than adult vegetables. Only takes about 10 days to start harvesting the greens to put in salads, sandwiches, and other dishes. It’s interesting to look at and it makes a great gift for anyone under any occasion.
12. Vegan Chocolates
A box of chocolates is a very popular choice for gifts, I have gotten chocolates as gifts many times after I went vegan. Unfortunately all the chocolates I have ever received was made from dairy ingredients and therefore not vegan. If you go to any chocolate shop, chances are you won’t find any vegan chocolates. But there are plenty of options online at places like Amazon that sells a variety of vegan chocolates.
13. Cool Vegan Clothing
Vegans are often very proud of the choice they have made to quit eating animal foods. We know our dietary choices are correct and we are doing the best thing we can for our health, for the animals, and for the environment. So we like to show our pride as vegans, and also to spread the message of veganism. Wearing a vegan shirt is a great way to show this pride, pick a shirt with a catchy or funny phrase or picture, and it will draw looks everywhere you go while spreading the message of peace.
14. Sivan 6-Piece Yoga Starter Set
If you know someone who is beginning yoga, this is a great starter kit you can get them to show your support. It comes with a yoga mat made with memory foam, towels, blocks, and straps, everything you need to start your yoga workout.
15. Air Purifier Bag
An air purifier bag clears away any odor and makes the air fresh and breathable. It works great for any place where there may be stinky like gym bags, closets, your bedroom, bathroom, car..etc If you have pets and they stink up the room with their pee and poop, just toss an air purifier bag in there, and the bag will do it’s job in eliminating some of this odor. These bags can be reused for up to 2 years.
