Our team scoured the internet to find over 20 of the best sustainable vegan gifts for the entire family – we just know you are going to love what we found! From natural cork to FSC certified birch wood, from organic creations to hand sewed knits – our guide is bursting with quality goodies that would make any vegan proud.

Shopping for “Vegan” items is not too difficult, but when we ask the hard questions – it can get harder and harder. Let’s take a look at how we research before we make these lists.

In order to create this holiday vegan gift roundup, we had to ask a few crucial questions.

  • From what materials is this made of? Is it eco-friendly and align with the vegan principles?
  • Is this product truly vegan-approved or green washed?
  • Who created the product? Are they paid fairly and treated respectfully?
  • What kind of business model does this business have: Linear or Circular?
  • Is this gift something that a loved one can use for many years to come? Possibly a repair service?

A sustainable vegan gift will answer all of these questions with straight and clear answers. When the answer is too hard to find, it usually means there is some (or a lot of) greenwashing going on. Luckily, our team is here and we are more than happy to build these gift guides to support the amazing brands doing the work.
