Are you shopping for an animal lover this holiday? This gift guide was created specifically for them! Every gift listed on here is vegan and cruelty-free.
What is a Vegan Gift?
Vegan gifts are completely free of any animal products. This means you won’t find materials like wool, leather or even honey in any of these listed gifts. Another important part of a vegan gift is being cruelty-free, which means the product was not tested on animals. We made sure to include vegan gifts of all kinds from fashion accessories to clean beauty products. Any animal lover would be pleased to know these products are being kind to not only the animals, but the planet, as well!
Sometimes it can be difficult to tell if a product is truly vegan so we hope this gift guide makes things easier for your holiday shopping!
Who doesn’t love a beautiful candle?! These ones from Ritual + Fancy and Made Trade are hand-poured in small batches with 100% soy wax, natural cotton & wood wicks, dried flowers, and pure essential oils. All candles feature one-of-a-kind floral designs, burn clean, and emit healing aromatherapy fragrances that are free of phthalates, lead, dyes, parabens, and other potentially toxic additives. They have a wide variety of scents to choose from, so you can be sure to get something the vegan in your life will love!
Named after Ecuador's breathtaking landscape and biodiversity, SAOLA’s super comfortable Mindo sneaker is a go-to for outdoor exploration or the daily commute. Made from recycled plastic, algae foam, natural cork, and organic cotton, these can be easily slipped on and off, and worn with or without socks.
I love SOLIOS (which is actually the first watch brand to be B Corp certified!) because you’ll NEVER have to change the battery. It recharges itself with either sunlight or artificial light (plus keeps a 6-month reserve of energy for the winter months). These watches are super sleek and can last a lifetime. They come in a wide variety of colors, and you can choose between stainless steel mesh or vegan leather straps. The vegan leather is made from silicone and cork and is free from PU, and PVC. Add on a custom engraving to make this an extra special gift.
Available in five different color options, this crossbody bag is functional yet chic so you could dress it up or use it for everyday errands. This piece is a part of Smateria’s IKI Collection, which is a vegan leather alternative that the brand actually developed on their own. It’s made of industrial packaging waste (which means it’s super durable) but transformed into something beautiful.
Delilah Home is actually one of the few Vegan.org certified textile companies! These award-winning sheets are soft, breathable, lightweight, and super sustainable. They’re 50% thicker than most sheets with a 180 GSM thread count. Plus, since hemp is naturally temperature-regulating, they will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. These sheets are GOTS organic certified and ethically made in a family-run factory in Portugal, using state of art machinery and with higher than Fair Trade wages.
These sheets have earned lots of awards, too: 2021 Good Housekeeping Award Winner for Best Bedding, 2020 Wall Street Journal “Worth the Splurge” Bedsheets, 2021 Sleep Foundation Best Cooling Sheets
Not only are 786 Cosmetics’ nail polish vegan and cruelty-free, but they’re also non-toxic (11-free), breathable, and certified Halal. Their industry-leading formula is water-permeable, which means water can penetrate through the polish and allow you to perform Wudu and pray without having to remove it. Their nail colors are inspired by cities around the globe—from Cordoba, Spain, to Agra, India, and more! You can create a set with your loved one’s favorite cities to make a great personalized gift.
Conscious Step’s entire supply chain is GOTS and Vegan certified. With each Conscious Step purchase, a portion of proceeds are donated to the charity associated with that pair of socks. They have many different options when it comes to socks that give back to animals!

It’s even more relaxing to know these bath bombs are completely vegan and cruelty-free!
These organic bath bombs are made with organic virgin coconut oil to hydrate your skin, Epsom salt and dead sea salt to sooth sore muscles and detoxify body, and are scented with essential oils for total relaxation.
This book was created by the founder of World of Vegan and the author of Plant-Based on a Budget, and comes with 100 flavor-forward recipes! BetterWorldBooks is a great sustainable place to purchase books from, and they have donated over 26,502,000 books, $28,430,000 for literacy and libraries, and have recycled and reused over 320,019,000 books!
