The VegNews Guide to Vegan Gifts  

While some get some excitement from last minute holiday shopping, this isn’t the year of procrastination. Given the unexpected supply chain issues this year, it’s essential to shop early — unless you’d rather host a gift exchange in February. Fortunately, this guide has something for everyone on your list, no matter how hard it is to shop for that one. From kitchen gadgets to creative DIY projects, here are 23 fun, practical, and totally unique gifts to give this year.


1 knives

A sharp knife is a safe knife. As inconsequential as this may sound, any professional chef will vouch for us. A good set of knives can turn a routine slicing into a less stressful experience, and they can also help prevent accidents in the kitchen. All you need to perform most kitchen jobs is an 8- to 10-inch chef’s knife, a serrated bread knife, and a four-and-a-half-inch paring knife. Gift a whole set, or if you know your friend is still trying to hack homemade sourdough loaves with a non-serrated knife, just pick up the all-important bread knife.

2 NanoFoamer

Espresso machines are pricey, but with the right tool, you can get close to that good microfoam topping soy milk with milk at the coffee shop. NanoFoamer is superior to any other basic milk frother we have used. For coffee lovers who are ever trying to perfect their homemade espresso drinks, this is the gift they can get.

5 Pottery with several purpose

Feed your loved one’s crafty character with this homemade pottery kit. Holiday packages are especially fun – consider creating your own candle holder and making your own mug (the latter comes with a hot chocolate bomb!). There are air drying options, so no fancy oven is required, just some creativity and hands-on work.

6 Frankie and Joe’s Paint Club

Shipping yourself ice cream feels extravagant, which makes it the perfect gift – something most people won’t buy for themselves yet we can guarantee to use (more like a devour). Each monthly box includes three seasonal flavors and one classic flavor from a Seattle-based vegan scoop shop. With tantalizing options like All the Squash and Cardamom Pear Pie, we can guarantee you won’t find these non-dairy flavors in your local freezer aisle.

7 grow lettuce

This urban farm is the perfect compromise for people who want to try their hand at gardening but don’t have the time, space or interest to deal with farming. Available in a short 12-plant stand for a massive 36-plant tower, the compact vertical hydroponic system does most of the work for you, but the resulting kale and bok choy taste just as fresh as if you planted the seeds yourself. Note: With the additional purchase of ring lights, the Lettuce Grow also works indoors!

8 Blue Bottle Casting Set

Pour-over kits are available through most third-wave coffee roasters, but we belong to Blue Bottle for its recent decision to make oat milk the default milk choice at all of its Southern California locations. Package includes a drip pan, flask, 30 filters, and a basic pouring guide. Gift this bundle to someone who’s ready to retire their $20 coffee maker for something a little more sophisticated.

9 conscious step socks

Socks are still a joke gift for White Elephant and Secret Santas exchangers, but when the purchase also goes to a nonprofit, that gift carries a little more weight. All sock options are sustainably and ethically made and feature fun, subtle prints like small forest trees, cat ears and turtles.

10 Goodr sunglasses

Everyone needs a pair of sunglasses that make them feel strong and confident, and Goodr lenses definitely make a statement. Sunny sportswear comes in a range of styles, lens shades and frame colors with whimsical names like Pistol Flamingo and Bosley’s Basset Hound Dreams. For those who run (or on a bike), all shades are polarized, lightweight, and non-slip. Did we mention they’re only $25? Buy one pair for a friend and one for yourself.

11 free! lip balm

Remember Lip Smackers? free! The balm is a vegan, eco-friendly version of your favorite childhood lip treatment (except it really hydrates). While the brand offers unscented, more muted flavors, we love playful varieties like Wintermint, Vanilla Bean, and classic Black Cherry. There are plenty of colorful and non-colored options to choose from, which makes a great extra gift for everyone on your list.

15th Premium vegan chocolate

Vegan chocolate can be found anywhere, but when given as a gift, it has to be fancy. We’re talking ornate lids, delicate chocolate art, and decadent fillings. There are many fine vegan chocolates out there, but to start, try Casse-Cou, Nhiar Chocolates, or Lagusta’s Luscious. Forget the candy canes—the vegan truffles really bring out the fun of the season.
