Some people believe that finding cruelty-free and eco-friendly is a difficult task. Although it is true that the vegan lifestyle has not yet become the norm and the amount of plant-based options varies depending on the country, we can observe how more and more people are choosing to introduce more sustainable daily habits. If you are looking for something special to gift to your vegan loved ones, but you lack inspiration, we’ve got you covered. Here is our list of 10 vegan gifts to surprise your significant other(s). Join the sustainable lifestyle with us!
Despite not having concrete data that corroborates this, we are sure that “What are your hobbies?” is one of the most repeated questions on a first date. The answer to this question causes cold sweat to some people, but it doesn’t have to be the case anymore.
If you know someone who frequently talks about how much they would like to get into gardening, but never takes the plunge, give them the little push they need by gifting them a gardening kit. It doesn’t have to be a super pro kit. It’s best to start simple and work your way up step by step.
At Etsy you can find plenty of different gardening kit options depending on if you want to grow herbs, flowers, vegetables or fruits.
If you think the full kit is too overwhelming, there are also gardening treats that are fun, original and easy. It’s the case of seedboms, friendly bombs that contain peat-free compost and wildflower or herb seeds. Why are they called bombs? Because they split open upon impact with the ground and grow where they land.
Finally, if you have the budget and really want to go the extra mile, you can give a gardening course as a gift. There are plenty of on-site and online options to choose from.
Cruelty-free self-care products
Fortunately, the tendency of companies that offer cosmetic goodies which don’t involve animals in the manufacturing process is growing nowadays. If we commit to buying only cruelty-free self-care products we can get one step closer to the eradication of such practices. But be careful and don’t fall into the trap of greenwashing. To avoid that, try to investigate a little about the company, its policies and the ingredients the products they sell contain.
Fancy reusable bag
As we explained in one of our posts, life in plastic is not fantastic. Maybe you think that buying a reusable bag as a gift is something not exciting at all, but nothing could be further from the truth! You just need to look around to see all the people who use fabric bags with really cool designs. Many shops have started selling them. Moreover, some artists and illustrators print their artwork on reusable bags.
There are also online shops which allow you to customize your own fabric bag.
The main benefits of using them:
- They are stronger and more durable than plastic bags
- They are more resistant, so there is almost no risk of bag breakage
- It’s cheaper to use reusable bags than plastic bags
- They are not only useful for grocery shopping, but also for carrying lunches, books or anything else you want to throw into a bag.
Now it sounds like a cool thing to give to someone, doesn’t it?
Following the thread of practical and plastic-free gifts, what’s more useful than a thermo bottle? Think about it. These bottles adapt to any type of situation. You can take them to work, to the library, to the beach or to the top of the Teide! This gift is suitable for all audiences, whether the person to whom you want to give it to is an adventurer or if they’re more into quiet plans.
Although there are many different types of thermo bottles, we recommend buying a stainless steel thermo bottle.Why? Because these are all the benefits:
- Outside temperature doesn’t affect what’s inside the bottle
- It keeps beverages warm for up to 12 hours
- It can keep beverages cold for up to 24 hours. (It’s recommended to use ice cubes)
- Stainless steel thermo bottles are suitable for food use
- Its exterior doesn’t “sweat”, so you won’t get your bag wet
- It’s (of course) reusable and recyclable
Those who say that vegan snacks are bland have not done much research about the huge variety of vegan snacking that exists on the market today.
They are tasty, original, sustainable and, most importantly, healthy. And we know what you’re thinking. Isn’t it a little sad to give someone snacks as a gift? We don’t think so, because it depends on the type of present you want to make. Get creative. You can give a box full of fancy vegan snacks: organic bars, vegetable chips, nut butter… Moreover, snacks do not have to be the only thing you give, but part of a bigger gift.
