Door 19: 5 Presents to buy a vegan friend this Christmas

Nearly every family or friendship group has got are some gift ideas that any vegan would be thrilled to receive this Christmas.

  1. 1 Vegan Letterbox Gift

    These are called a few things: vegan letterbox gift, vegan food box, vegan treat box etc. As you would expect these are full of free-from goodies that are usually quite unusual and difficult for vegans to get thier hands on (vegan cinder toffee, chocolate covered sea salt fudge, need I go on?). This will be a no-risk win with any vegan I know! Check out options on Etsy to support small businesses. 

  2. 2 Bath and Shower Selection

    You'll have plenty of choice in Lush and The Body Shop (although not everything is vegan so make sure you still check the labels) but you can also find some lovely bottles and soaps in the supermarket (look out for the cruelty free 'leaping bunny' logo). 

  3. 3 Accidentally Vegan Hamper

    This is a great idea if you want to hand pick your vegan friend's favourite treats and you can get plenty of these from the comfort of your own supermarket. Think Oreos, Tesco's dark chocolate digestives and mint chocolate thins, a bar of Bourneville, Ritz crackers, Fry's chocolate creams, Starburst, Skittles and Love Hearts! 

  4. 4 Baking in a Bottle

    Have you heard of The Bottled Baking Co.? They do a great selection of vegan bakes in a bottle - a really fun gift! My personal favourite is the Vegan Chocolate & Walnut Brownie Mix, yum. 

  5. 5 Kits!

    I love getting gifts like this. This will be something to keep your vegan friend busy between Christmas and New Year! Making your own lip balm is a fun mini project. Make sure the kit is vegan and doesn't contain beeswax, Hug the Earth is 100% vegan and eco-friendly. For friends and family into crafts choose a kit that uses cotton such as macrame or crochet (Wool and the Gang have a vast array of colours available).
