Vegan Christmas Gift Guide – Gift Ideas for Vegans
I’m really excited to be doing a vegan Christmas gift guide with lots of lovely gift ideas for vegans and anyone else, of course. There are lots of wonderful beauty and pampering products and other gifts in this guide. Let’s get started!
Vegan Vibes Self Care Pamper Kit from The Pretty Little Treat Company
The Pretty Little Treat Company is a small family business based in Yorkshire that makes exquisite pamper treats and gifts. They have just launched their Vegan Vibes Self Care Pamper Kit which would make a great eco-conscious gift.
The set includes a collection of exquisite vegan pamper treats, presented in a cotton cosmetics bag. The useful products inside are the following:
- Vegan Organic & Natural Coconut Lip Balm 15g
- 100% Natural Shea Butter Balm or Lavender All Purpose Sleep Balm 12g
- SLS Free Vegetable Soap in the No.04 fragrance of Mimosa, Rose and Jasmine 120g
- Exfoliating Eco Soap Bag made from 100% plant material
- Box of 200 Bamboo Cotton Buds
- Bamboo Toothbrush
It’s a kit full of handy products for anyone who wants to lead a zero-waste and vegan lifestyle and explore luxurious, natural products. To make it extra special, you can add the name of the recipient to the gift sleeve and also include a free gift message.
- Organic, Biodegradable, Vegan, Sustainable Skincare Gifts from OBVS
Obvs Skincare is a small Hampshire business that makes organic, biodegradable, vegan and sustainable skincare products and gift sets.
The brand was created by Sian who sadly suffered a second miscarriage after her second round of IVF and this resulted in adult acne. Sian created an organic, natural cream at home in her own kitchen which cleared her breakouts and also worked wonders for nappy rash on her friends’ babies’ bums. Just over a year later, in May 2021, she launched Obvs Skincare and sold out straight away – the customer response has been amazing!
Obvs Skincare products are made with the highest quality, ethically sourced, cruelty-free ingredients to help people with their skincare concerns with 100% natural, effective ingredients. The products (and packaging) are also free from plastic, palm oil, soy, and parabens.
In this blog post, you can see the The Ultimate Christmas Obvs Skincare Gift Set (available in travel sized or full sized) which includes four products:
- Organic Intensive Skin Recovery Cream
- Organic Moisturiser – Naked (fragrance-free)
- Organic Moisturiser – Morning Mandarin
- Organic Moisturiser – Evening Lavender
You can read the details about each of these products on the listing linked above. I feel that I am now well-equipped to deal with any skincare concerns that come my way as the weather gets colder with these wonderful, top-quality, natural creams.
- ASCEND Vegan CBD Skincare
ASCEND is a Scottish based skincare brand with a range of high potency facial oils and serums for different skincare needs. The award-winning brand makes products that are fully vegan with a focus on traceability and sustainability.
There are currently three products to choose from and they all contain full-spectrum CBD. CBD is an amazing ingredient for skincare products for many reasons. The three products available are:
- REGENERATE Phyto-Retinol + CBD Night Serum
- REJUVENATE Caffeine + CBD Brightening Oil Serum
- REBALANCE Rebalancing CBD Lustre Face Oil
I found it very hard to choose between these amazing sounding products but ended up going for the Regenerate one with retinol, rosehip, sea buckthorn, chamomile, and cannabis sativa extracts. It’s been formulated to boost collagen production and to be an overnight anti-aging treatment. It’s an ultra-concentrated serum that is such a treat to use at night, to then wake up to skin that feels healthy and fresh and looks brighter too. The impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties from CBD are great for me too as I get hormonal breakouts.
- Natural Handmade Soap from House of Ginger Co
The House of Ginger Co is a small UK business that makes handcrafted soaps that are vegan and suitable for dry skin. This beautiful French Pink Clay and Bentonite Clay soap is part of the Red Ochre Collection and a lovely moisturising and exfoliating soap that creates a creamy, hydrating lather. It’s a pleasure to use for hands and/or the body.
- Sustainable Beauty & Pamper Treats from Considerate Beauty
Considerate Beauty is a sustainable beauty online retailer with a completely vegan product range. They also plant a tree for every order. They have lots of wonderful products to choose from that would make great gifts.
Above, you can see their The Natural Spa Mini Travel Wash Kit – Citrus which is a handy vegan and zero waste travel kit with miniature Lemon Sorbet Soap, Citrus Blossom Soap, Lemon Shampoo and Mini Lemon Conditioner presented in a cute travel tin complete with a bamboo flannel. It’s such an adorable zero waste kit that would make a wonderful gift for anyone who likes to travel or try different low waste beauty products.
Considerate Beauty have lots of lovely bath products too, including these mini bath bomb hearts. I’ve been enjoying testing these in the scents Spiced Orange and Citrus which are both so fresh. They’re a great size bath bomb treat for daily baths! They’re packed with Epsom salts, clay and essential oils to create a bath with a gentle aroma.
- Candles from The Sustainable Candle Co.
The Sustainable Candle Company create high-quality, eco-friendly and sustainable candles with amazing scents. The candles are made from vegan friendly soy wax, hand-poured into beautiful and sturdy jars. The perfume grade oils are sourced from France and are free from parabens and silicones. All packaging is recycled and recyclable and the company also has a tree planting scheme.
There are lots of special scents to choose from. I went for Wood Sage & Sea Salt and Ocean, and both are even better than I imagined.
Wood Sage & Sea Salt is a rich, aromatic and musky scent while Ocean, one of The Sustainable Candle Company’s signature fragrances, is fresh and instantly takes your senses to the seashore. These are such high quality candles and scents – a real treat!
- Complete Me Vegan Supplements
Supplements are something you should only buy for someone who you know likes taking supplements. In my experience, most vegans are health conscious and that usually includes supplements too. Complete Me have many products that are suitable for vegans. I chose the two above – Daily Defence and Sleeping Beauty as I thought they sounded interesting.
Daily Defence helps keep your immune system in tip-top condition which is extra important at the moment. Most of our immune system comes from our gut and this supplement promotes the gut function with probiotics, Vitamin C and Zinc. It also contains Psyllium Husk to support digestion and Quercetin to reduce inflammation and prevent infection.
Sleeping Beauty is a supplement designed to help us relax and achieve a good night’s sleep which is hard with our modern, stressful, and busy lives. This supplement contains magnesium and 5HTP – a building block for our sleep hormone. It also contains Vitamin B6 which supports healthy hormonal activity and Zinc which can increase sleep length and quality. Finally, it also contains Lemon Balm to ease stress and help promote a restful night’s sleep.
- Emma’s Botanicals Pineapple Tea Towel
Emma van Klaveren is an illustrator that makes stunning botanical prints and her original watercolour of a pineapple, ‘Ananas comosus’, is also available printed onto a soft 100% cotton tea towel made in the UK. It’s beautiful and would make a lovely gift for anyone who loves fruit! The pineapple tea towel is machine washable and available to buy from emmasbotanicals.com.
- The Sleep Tight Box: Deluxe from Ocean & Bee
Ocean & Bee is wonderful place to shop for vegan gifts – everything in their store is vegan, free from palm oil and free from single-use plastic. The Sleep Tight Box: Deluxe is a beautiful bundle of products that help you relax to achieve a good night’s sleep. What a lovely gift to give to someone who you know needs to take some me-time out of their hectic schedule and make time for rest and relaxation.
The gift box includes lots of relaxing goodies: a Corinne Taylor Calm Himalayan Bath Salts Sachet, a House of Hopstock Eye Mask in a gorgeous print, a pack of Nipper & Co Organic Sip ‘n’ snore Tea, a Twoodle Belle Lavande Scented Candle and a bottle of Nathalie Bond Unwind Body Oil. Everything came beautifully packaged and smelling amazing with real, dried lavender in the box to complement the products.
Ocean & Bee plant a tree with every sale and 5% of profits go to ocean clean-up charities.
Delicious chocolate treats are a Christmas must and these days there are lots of options suitable for vegans too. Divine make many vegan chocolate treats, including these Dark Chocolate After Dinner Mint Thins which are a Christmas classic. All the Divine treats available to buy from The Nappy Gurus are vegan, like everything else on their website. There are also lots of great vegan advent calendars available these days.
I hope you have enjoyed this guide with gift ideas for vegans and have found my suggestions useful.
