Whether you’re vegan yourself or looking for a gift for a vegan this Holiday season, here is an utlimate list of over 100 awesome vegan Christmas gift ideas.
In addition to all of the items not containing any animal ingredients or materials, most of these gift ideas are also eco-friendly and sustainable. So they’re better for people, the animals, as well as, the planet!
Gifts That Are Not Vegan:
Let’s first start by listing what’s not vegan and items that should be avoided:
- Food and beverages that contain meat, seafood, dairy, eggs, or bee-products. Watch out for candies that contain gelatin and wine clarified with egg whites or isinglass.
- Clothes, shoes, or accessories made from animal materials like leather, suede, fur, shearling, sheepskin, wool, cashmere, down, and silk. That includes wool scarves/hats, watches with leather straps, and silk pajamas.
- Beauty products that were tested on animals or that contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products like carmine, lanolin, keratin, honey, beeswax.
- Home decor & furnishings made with animal materials like wool throws, down and feather-filled pillows and duvets, silk bedding, and leather chairs. Also, watch out for candles made with stearic acid or beeswax.
Note that this is not a complete list of non-vegan items, but it’s enough to get you started on the basics. And if you ever find yourself not sure if something is vegan, try searching “is ___ vegan?” into Google. There’s surely someone else that has asked the same question before you.
