Best Gifts For Vegans (10 Creative & Cruelty Free Ideas)

Veganism is not just about a diet of avoiding animal-based products, but it’s also about avoiding the purchases of products that contain animal-derived ingredients and/or products that were tested on animals.

Believe it or not there are many everyday products that you’d be surprised aren’t 100% vegan including things like shampoo, toothpaste, socks, backpacks, shoes, hats, sugar, stuffed animals, plus many more!

Often it’s not easy to tell if something is vegan or not because there could be sneaky ingredients like “glycerine” or “lanolin” where it is derived from animals, but how the heck would you have known that??

So if you’re trying to buy a gift for someone who is a strict vegan you can imagine how careful you’ll have to be. That’s why I’ve come up with this “Best Gifts For Vegans” article to give you some ideas.

Top 10 – Best Gifts For Vegans

1. Cali White Charcoal Coconut Oil Toothpaste

It’s pretty ridiculous that something as innocuous as toothpaste you still have to wonder if it’s vegan or not.

Unfortunately glycerine is a very common ingredient found in many toothpaste out there, it’s an ingredient that’s either derived from animal fat or vegetable oil. But unless they specifically says which one it is you wouldn’t know.

Cali White Activated Charcoal toothpaste is made from very natural ingredients like coconut oil and baking soda and it’s 100% vegan. In addition to being a good toothpaste it also contains food grade activated charcoal that whitens your teeth.

2. Puracy Shampoo & Conditioner Set

Commercial shampoos often contain harmful and toxic ingredients and preservatives like Parabens which damage hair follicles. They also contain animal-derived ingredients like lanolin which is a type of wax that comes from wool-bearing animals like sheep.

Vegan shampoos and conditioners like this Puracy set is great because it’s 100% vegan, made from natural ingredients, and free of any harsh chemicals.

Most people who go vegan have to give up chocolate because most chocolates contain milk ingredients which is not vegan. While vegan chocolates do exists they’re typically found in special places or online, you won’t find vegan chocolates in most grocery stores.

Most vegans don’t get to eat chocolate very often, therefore it’s a very nice idea to give them a box of vegan chocolates, especially if they’re a chocolate lover.

This No Whey Foods chocolate truffles collection is a box of 24-pieces of delicious chocolates that’s 100% vegan and cruelty free, it’s also free of common allergens like dairy, nuts, eggs, soy, wheat, and gluten.

    Thanks for these gift ideas.  Although I am not vegan I have family members who are.  It is good to know that I can get toothpaste and other personal products to keep on hand for them.  I did not know that some non-food products were also non-vegan.  I always wonder, when I purchase something online that says vegan if it can be trusted.  Thanks for taking the time to list these 10 things.  Christmas is past, but I can sure use many of the items around the house with vegan family members.

    Beautiful, nice, and welcome: three words to describe these ten ideas you have exposed in the article. Especially the… spoons and bowls from coconuts :). During this period before Christmas I went somewhat vegan too (no milk, no meat, some fish…), but as far as I am concerned it’s not an option for life, it is meant to be a temporary one. There are times I consume milk- and meat-based products too, during a year. Also, the Broccoli shirt looks nifty :).

    Kind regards, Peter

      lol there is no “somewhat vegan” if you eat fish then you are not vegan, period. but kudos for cutting out the meat and milk though.
