Shopping for your friends is difficult at the best of times. However, knowing everything about your buddies won’t reduce the challenge of gift buying for them, especially if they’re a vegan.

But it’s pointless even hitting the shops until you understand what’s considered suitable for a vegan and with this, comes the frustration of many baffling questions.

So, where do I start? What do vegans like? How do I know a product is vegan?

Let’s look at the top eight gift ideas to pick up for all your vegan mates out there!

    1. Books

Whether your friends are into cooking, reading, journaling or just enjoy jotting down their notes, an interesting read or a delicious new recipe is sure to go down well with them.

Buy your buddies a cookbook or perhaps a guidebook for those looking at a lifestyle swap. There are tonnes of books available with tips on how to make the switch to a plant-based diet, or just on how to make improvements on your cooking!

    2. Bags

Bags and backpacks are a fantastic gift for vegans, and the best part is that people of all ages require them. Veggie Adventures have a great range of everything from wallets to drink bottles to shoes and undies. Ethically made, PETA-approved choices made from 100% vegan materials.

Our cross-body bags are perfect for a night out or a day of shopping, while our bucket bags and backpacks will compliment a trip to the grocery store or even as a study bag!

Combining comfort, style and a mixture of natural and recycled rubber, our thongs are suitable for the beach-goer buddy of yours too! Our sneakers are made from sustainable latex and are of extremely durable quality!

These are environmentally-friendly, are fair trade certified and cause absolutely zero suffering to animals or people in the production of them. Grab a pair today!

    5. Beauty Products

Sometimes it’s fun to pick two gifts that accommodate each other, for example, perhaps some beauty products to go in that purse. Veggie Adventures have a small collection of body and face cosmetics such as lipsticks and nail polish.

Any woman knows how difficult it is to find a quality lipstick at a price that’s not ridiculous. Throw in the fact that it’s got to be vegan-friendly, and you could be looking at a real wallet-burner!

Luckily, we’ve got some great stuff at even better prices! Check it out here now!

    6. Underwear

Regardless of who you are or the lifestyle you lead, underwear is an important part of everyone’s lives. We supply Etiko organic underwear for men and have several designs available and are both animal and human cruelty-free.

Experience comfort like no other from a pair of these soft, organic-certified cotton undies that feel incredible around the important bits and pieces!

Our undies are also bound to last longer as there’s no use of harmful chemicals in their production.

    7. Kid’s Stuff

Vegans have families too and are likely attempting to get their kids to mimic their parent’s lifestyle and eating habits. Grab some of our kid’s items and help your friend out with finding vegan-friendly stuff for their little ones.

There’s plenty of cruelty-free things for them to take to school and enjoy at home like play makeup and books!

    8. Bottles and Lunch bags

Tying in with the kid’s stuff, however not limited to kids, is the last of our vegan gift ideas. It’s our gorgeous range of drink bottles and lunch bags!

Our lunch bags from Urban Originals are neoprene-made and are insulated to keep your goodies cold and fresh all day.

Our drink bottles are perfect for both kids and adults and are all animal-themed. They’re made with silicon-wrapped tritan and are completely BPA and BPS-free.

Have the peace of mind in knowing your children are consuming their food out of harmless, low chemical drink bottles and lunch bags!

Buying for a vegan doesn’t have to be tricky. It’s about incorporating somebody’s interests and personality with vegan-friendly products ensuring both gift-givers and recipients stay equally happy!

But remember, there are also a lot of scammers and ‘fake’ vegan-friendly or ecofriendly goods out there, so always purchase these items from a reputable, 100% cruelty-free store!
