For the past decade, the number of vegans in the US has drastically grown, so there is a good chance that you may have a friend or two that have embraced veganism. We’re guessing that you’re here because you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift!
As fellow vegans, we have put together a list of 15 gifts for a vegan. Whether you are buying a “vegan gift for him” or a “vegan gift for her”, I’m sure you’ll find something perfect for them below.
The list below contains products that range in price from $20 to $200, but if you scroll to the bottom, you’ll find a list of inexpensive vegan gifts.
A spiralizer is a decently priced gift that is perfect for any vegan. This tool will open up his or her cooking horizons. Especially, if the person enjoys eating raw food a lot of the time. This appliance can cut vegetables into ten different shapes including, angel hair, spaghetti, linguine, curly fry, and lasagna styled noodles.
This company specifically, makes its spiralizer from 100% BPA-free plastic. Stating it is strong enough to withstand even the hardest veggies like butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and beets. You will also receive an eBook with your purchase.
Cuts through veggies with ease
No mess, easy to clean up
All blades are marked
Comes with blade caddy and veggie catching container
Suction cups on bottom for stabilizing
Blades won’t work properly if blade post isn’t in tight
Can get tiring when slicing tough vegetables
Catch container for veggies isn’t very big
“If you’re going to buy a spiralizer, buy something like this! The time saved from the hand held versions cannot be matched. I can spiralize a zucchini in less than thirty seconds and that’s while breaking off strips once they reach a certain length. It also has so many options! I can finally make the large zoodles I see at restaurants. Probably the only thing extra I could have thought for this is the ability to cut off strips oh, but it would be less safe that way.”
“I love this spiralizer. It has 10 blades, and has a slot for all 10. It is compact but does a great job. It has a suction cup that holds everything tight as you use it. You just turn a lever and turn it back to lift it up to clean. I love the storage container that comes with it. I’m always using veggies in the kitchen so this is getting used a lot. Takes a small space in the cabinet. Has a booklet that shows which blades to use with what vegetable and has some recipes. Very happy with it.”
“Good suction to countertop. Easy to learn. Easy to operate. Lots of different blades. Would recommend highly”
Dehydrators are great for drying fruits, herbs, and vegetables. They are an amazing tool to have if the person receiving the gift loves to make their own vegan burger patties, fruit wraps, and even desserts. For those that claim themselves as raw vegans, this is a must-have in the kitchen. The food never reaches cooking temperatures, so everything is still considered raw.
This dehydrator comes with five trays and it is the perfect size for one person or even a small family kitchen. It also has a convenient digital timer on the front. The transparent lid and trays allow you to easily keep an eye on your food as it dehydrates.
The five different trays allow for multiple food options
Great product at a great price
Easy to use
Comes with recipes
Holds a lot of food at once
Not the best plastic
Trays can break easily
Not as powerful as an industrial dehydrator
Hard to clean
“Love it. Love this dehydrator. I’ve used it several times since purchase, mainly for fruits and its wonderful. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced dehydrator that doesn’t take up a huge amount of counter space, this is for you. It’s also super quiet.”
“My friends always said I bought something odd! This is fabulous! EASY for lazy people like me! It has 5 trays! Totally enough for three boxes of strawberries. you can adjust the time and temperature. Before you go to bed to make it. When you wake up, you can enjoy it. And this won’t make a loud noise.”
“I love this thing! I have used it a few times with lemon and sweet potatoes, and it works great!
I love the amount of trays, and they settle into each other perfectly.
Easy to clean, easy to use!!”
This juicer packs a punch with its 1100 watts of power. Juicing vegetables is something any vegan will love to do. It beats going out to the local juice bar any day. This juicer has a wide mouth that can fit entire apples in at one time, and with little countertop space needed.
The company states you can make a 16oz drink in 8 seconds without any clogging or foaming. This brand also has a 3 and 4-year protection warranty available at purchase, but it comes with a 2-year warranty for no extra cost!
Easy to assemble
No mess, easy to clean up
Quick clean up
Suction cups on the bottom for stabilizing
Over-packing can cause malfunctions with the motor
Pulp doesn’t always go into the bin
Plastic cup is susceptible to cracking
Doesn’t use entire fruit or vegetable
“I am in love with the large chute on this juicer. Half the time, if I decide against making juice, it would be because I didn’t want to go through the hassle of cutting all of the produce before juicing. This takes the need for that step away. I am beyond satisfied with this product!”
“This juicer was so simple to use. I have had several other juicers and this one was the easiest and made the most juice. I feel like I am wasting less food and get more juice. I also recommend reading the tips sections in the booklet when you buy it because there are some really helpful tips in it.”
“This is the first juicer I’ve ever purchased, and it makes quick work of the juicing process — pulp goes in the little bin and juice goes into the measuring cup. Not too many parts and pieces, and clean-up is not bad if you do so immediately. I have only experimented with a few vegetables but this is a powerful little machine. The seller was prompt, very pleasant and reasonable. Happy Juicing!”
The Black and Decker rice cooker does more than cook rice. It comes with a tray so you can conveniently steam vegetables right on top of the rice you are cooking. This speeds up cooking time, while also freeing up some space.
This rice cooker comes in six different sizes to perfectly fit you and your family’s needs. It can be used to cook things like chickpeas, potatoes, beets, broccoli, carrots, rice and more. The diversity it offers in the kitchen is what makes this particular rice cooker stand out.
Non-stick cooking pot
Automatically flips to warm when done cooking
Easy to use
Easy to clean
Comes with a rice scooper
Water may spout over the top of the lid
Sometimes overcooks the rice
Sometimes the time flips before the rice is done cooking
Auto timer only works for cooking rice, not when steaming it
“This is the most perfect little appliance. I’ve cooked quinoa, barley & rice in it. It works very well. Reading the reviews before I bought it, I covered the steam hole with a lightweight cotton towel, to prevent a mess. No mess! Perfect for one person. Since it’s so small, it doesn’t take up much room, which is another plus. In a short time, you have a perfectly cooked grain! I cook the maximum amount & it lasts me for four meals. Love this thing!”
“Great little machine. I love all the things you can cook in it vs my 1990’s era steamer! This little guy had big shoes to fill-I LOVED my old steamer-and it’s easily my new favorite kitchen appliance it’s small & easy to store and very easy to clean. I have turned it off before it’s done cooking as my rice seemed (and was) done. Just keep an eye on it. But seriously people, it’s a good price, good brand, great buy.”
“I am cooking for two but I pack leftovers for lunch. This is the perfect size for 2-3 people. I enjoy rice but CANNOT cook it on the stove, I burn it every time. This rice cooker is great! It cooks perfect rice every time and I don’t even have to worry about it while I am cooking the rest of dinner. So nice!”
A Vitamix blender is no ordinary blender. This is the dream blender for most vegans. It is quiet and powerful. It also comes with a tamper to help push the food around to smooth it out even quicker. You don’t need to use it most of the time though. This blender does a fine job of blending pretty much anything.
It comes with a 48oz container and aircraft-grade stainless steel blades to cut through almost anything with ease. This blender also has ten different speed settings, making it perfect for blending up anything from liquids to nut butters. It also comes with a cookbook and the option to purchase a three-year protection warranty at check-out.
Easy to clean
Works as a food processor
Easy to use
Doesn’t take up a lot of space
Stalls out while blending thick products at times
Gets air pockets
Doesn’t come with cleaning tools
Cookbook is made for 60 ounce drinks, not 48 ounce ones.
“This is great! I use it to make protein shakes for workouts almost every day and for chopping up vegetables for cooking (saves so much time). I never had any real problems. Super easy to clean. It shakes a little and I feel like I have to hold it still at the higher speeds but at least it isn’t sealed (sealed blenders can explode!)”
“This is a good size if you plan to make 2-3 servings. I was debating between this one or the Vitamix with the original, larger container, but I’m happy I went with this one. It blends just as well (my mom has the original one), just remember it is not going to make as many servings.
I didn’t think I would use this every day, like how some reviewers say they do…but I too end up using it every day, multiple times a day. Wish the warranty was longer, and that it came with the larger cookbook, but that’s okay.”
“When you make the choice between a Vitamix and a chair … and you chose to sit on the floor ..WORTH IT..”
Stainless steel water bottles are a must-have. They make drinking water extremely convenient. This specific brand is BPA-free and dishwasher safe. It has a no-sweat design that keeps your hands dry no matter what. It keeps the temperature of the drink that’s in it no matter how hot or cold it is outside.
The sliding locking mouthpiece makes it convenient while taking a drink in the car. You don’t have to unscrew anything to take a drink, simply slide the mouthpiece up. These cups last a long time without needing a replacement, so it saves you money as well as the planet.
Easy to clean
Maintains the temperature for hours
Be careful when filling it hot liquids since it’s difficult to judge temperature
Priced higher than typical water bottles
“ Great with coffee, beer, and water, which are really the only things I drink with it. Love the magnetic lid piece and that it is leak-proof. When there is boiling water in the cup it is never so hot that you can’t hold it.”
“Yes! I’ve had more than my share of crappy coffee mugs. I got to the point where I was wondering why such a seemingly simple thing could be so difficult. This one hits all the marks. It’s easy to clean. It keeps liquids cold or hot. The top removes and reapplies easily. It’s easy and comfortable to hold. And, you can drink out of it easily without worry of spillage. This one wins. Perfection. Finally!”
“I bought this one as a gift for my husband. He later got one for me. We use them daily. They are expensive, but they should last pretty much forever. My husband lost the little magnetic black partly because it is removable for cleaning. Fortunately, yeti accessories are sold so we replaced his lid. Since we have discovered that instead of removing the magnet piece you can rotate it 90 degrees it still sticks. This gives access to the parts you want to get clean but without separating it from the lid to get lost.”

Comes with an app to remind you when to water the plants
Light is set on a timer
Great & simple way to grow your own vegetables

“I’m a horrible person for keeping plants alive. I killed a couple of ferns and even cactus that don’t that much work. So when I saw these on sale I had to try. I never bought before because of the price and some friends have it and love it. I’m very happy with the buy! So far my plants are growing happily let’s see if it lasts! The only bad thing is that they sell only one type of herbs in a 3 package. I don’t want to have 3 same herbs planted so I had to buy another pods and mix.”
“I read a lot of C&G and Aero garden reviews before buying this. I was really nervous after seeing some negative ones. It works fine, though. You put in pods and water and plants grow. Eventually, they get too big and you have to transplant or eat them. Works as advertised, big water reservoir.”
“This is the best present I’ve gotten for myself in quite a long time. I work in an office and can’t keep the lights on long enough for traditional planters. Because this has 16 hours of daylight built-in, I don’t have to worry about the plants getting enough light. Watering the right amount is so easy. This system is so low maintenance and brings a spark of color and life to my office. I’m glad I got one of these systems.”

“The product was a gift and I have spoken with the recipient several times since she received the gift and she has used the product on at least 3 occasions since receiving it. She is delighted with everything that was included in the package. She is already requesting how she can get more… I sent her the link… Thanks.”
“Arrived right on time in a beautiful yet simple gift box that conveyed the message of the product – natural, beautiful self-care! It made a great gift and I felt great giving it to someone knowing that they were getting a quality product.”
“My sister in law got this, she loves it, she is always crazy over lotions and sets, so I got her this and it is a great set for the price.”
This is the number one rated beard oil for men, and it is completely vegan and organic. Keeps your beard healthy, groomed and tamed naturally. It moisturizes to eliminate itching and dandruff, leaving you with a happy beard and happy skin. This is a great gift for that bearded man in your life.

“Neutral smell definitely keeps your beard from being a flaky mess and the ladies have commented on how much softer it feels. I definitely recommend it and will purchase again.”
“I use it a few times a week or when my beard feels dry. Does the job really well! Fragrance-free is a wonderfully neutral smell.”
This Epsoak Epsom salt comes with three different scented soaks. Epsom salt baths are great for detoxing the body and mind, allowing you to relax from a hard day at work and pamper yourself a little bit. This product helps soothe muscle aches and pains, detoxifying pores and cleansing the skin.
It also comes with a satisfaction guarantee, which helps you more confidently purchase the product. This is a great gift for a vegan because it is a natural way to relax and clear the skin. Scented naturally and made with USP grade Epsom salt.
Great for sore muscles
Sometimes the scent is too strong
Could dissolve better
Shouldn’t be used by those with sensitive skin
“If you think the stuff you can buy at your local pharmacy is Epsom salt, you’re going to need to get this just to have some concept of how incredibly wrong you are. This is magic in a bag. I have multiple issues that cause chronic pain, and a hot bath with this, about 1/4 cup of coconut oil and I feel like a new woman. These Epsom salts have given me more pain relief than the maximum dose of ibuprofen. Excuse me, I’m going to go buy the full-size bags now.”
“These salts are a GAME CHANGER. Wow. After months of inactivity, I started a cross-fit challenge. My body was so sore I could honestly barely move and ibuprofen wasn’t cutting it. Someone suggested bath salts to me so I went looking on Amazon and found this brand. Literally, after one quick bath in the muscle soak, my body felt 100x better. My skin also feels super rejuvenated and soft. I cannot recommend this product enough. ESPECIALLY if you suffering from any kind of body or muscle aches. Please, do yourself a favor and order this!!!!”
“I really like these! I’ve bought Dr. Teals brand for forever but I decided to try these. The smell peppermint and lavender in these are definitely stronger than Teals which some people may like, some might not but I don’t mind it. I will definitely buy again.”
Whether you are buying a gift for someone that’s been a vegan for years, or someone that has just switched over to this new lifestyle, they will always appreciate a good vegan cookbook. This is a timeless gift that will always come in handy. They also make for fun decorative pieces in the kitchen.
The best part about buying a vegan cookbook as a gift is you can’t go wrong. No matter the cookbook, there will always be information in it that is useful at one point or another. If you know the favorite chef of the person you are buying for, then even better.
Some of the other bestselling Amazon vegan cookbooks are:
Useful for years to come
Very simple receipes to follow
Packed with many vegan recipes
Photography can be misleading at times
“I got this book yesterday morning. I have already made several batches of the vegan chocolate chip cookies, and they are to die for. I can’t wait to make all of the recipes in this book. I love how there is a special chapter just for vegan sauces (ranch, BBQ, etc…) and that the recipes are doable without being basic or requiring crazy things you can’t find at your reg grocery store. Highly recommend for vegan/vegetarian or even non-plant based eaters. These recipes are delish.”
“Amazing ‘real food’ recipes. My husband is an omnivore and he liked these recipes. It gives me real hope in eating more vegan (vs vegetarian) dishes- there are some easy recipes in there too that will easily keep me from ordering a pizza in a pinch. All of the tips on how to stock my pantry and products to invest in (necessary to luxury) are all categorized and broken down so you can make the best decision for yourself. Though buying organic and co-op items is kind of hard here in Orange County, CA- the co-ops are concentrated in LA. Overall, best plant-based book I’ve come across yet.”
“I LOVE this cookbook. I initially ordered it because I’m getting CSA vegetable boxes this summer, and wanted a book that was veggie-focused to use them up. I had no idea how great it would be. It’s one of the first cookbooks I’ve read cover to cover, and used so many post-it flags it looks like it’s a textbook for class! I’ve already made the granola, which is perfect, and delicious. I also love the liquid gold salad dressing. It’s already come to pass that this dressing must be in the fridge at all times, I use it on everything. I can’t wait to make the honey wheat pizza dough (though I need to adapt it to gluten-free flour), and the chickpea tikka masala. Do yourself a favor and order this book if you’re on the fence, it is WELL worth the money.”
These chocolates are a great gift for anyone! They use natural flavors an 72% natural cacao. They are certified non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan. You can buy them in different sized packs to fit anyone’s needs.
10% of their profits are donated to protect wildlife and their habitats. Over $1.2 million have been donated to date. This premium chocolate will do more than just make you happy, it will help keep animals happy too. Something any vegan will love.
High in fiber
Low in sugar
Flavor isn’t always evenly distributed
A little dry
“It’s very hard to find a decent chocolate bar that doesn’t have a lot of salt, these have zero. I love these and I like the espresso in them too. I may try the panther next because I noticed they don’t have salt either. I used to buy Godiva dark chocolate peppermint until I noticed that they were made partially with GMOs. There is no excuse for that at their price point. These have no GMO and no sodium, I won’t be buying Godiva anymore.”
“This is my favorite vegan treat. The Owl Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt and Almonds is delicious and healthy. There are a few other vegan ones but I haven’t wished to try them because every time I have the option I always go for the Owl.”
“Have been using Black and Greens’ dark chocolate for the past few years and decided to give the Endangered Species 88% dark chocolate a try, since it was on sale. It has a slightly mellower taste than the Black and Greens which is very pleasant. Both are great products and I’ll continue to purchase them in the future. Highly recommended!”
Essential oils are becoming more popular every day. Because of this, the quality of some brands is severely lacking. You can buy essential oils pretty much anywhere now but beware of the really cheap oils. Young Living oils are always 100% pure oils. They have a seed to seal certification stating they farm and harvest all of their own plants at farms across the world. Giving them an upper hand in the industry.
This is a great gift for anyone, and if they don’t have a diffuser yet, they will need one! You can’t go wrong with a diffuser, but if you want one that will last it is better to spend a little more money on it, to begin with. I have found a decently priced diffuser and linked it above.
Natural aromatherapy throught your house
Don’t have to worry about unknown chemicals
Easy to clean
Pets might be sensitive to it
Few complaints concerning improper packaging
“I use essential oils all the time. I tried different kinds and found that Young Living Oils works the best. I have a bad back and my wife puts a couple of drops of Panaway, Valor, and peppermint. and rubs them in on my back and the pain goes away. We tried cheaper oils for our diffuser to save money, but found that Young Living oils are worth the extra money.”
“Great stuff. Pricey but worth it.”
“I am thoroughly pleased with my order! I love oils and so does my family. I ordered these oils for a friend as a Christmas gift and I cannot imagine a better deal! Thank you for helping make this dream come true.”
A terrarium is a fun way to grow plants indoors. This gift will be sure to put a smile on any vegan’s face. It allows for a little crafting time to put it all together, and then you can enjoy your creation as a nice decorative piece in your house.
This terrarium kit comes with three plants on top of the different mosses, potting soil, and even charcoal. It also comes with complete instructions for putting your terrarium together. When it comes to the kit though, it doesn’t come with the actual terrarium, you will have to buy one separately. Any will work, but the one I have linked above is a great size and will sit nicely on any table.
Comes with plenty of decorative moss and rocks
Easy to take care of
Looks great in your home
Some customers have reported plants arriving dead on arrival
Some moss could develop mold
“I ordered three, but it actually comes in four little plants, just for the terrarium. Mine turns out pretty good, especially the ivy :D”
“I received my kit within days and had a blast helping my niece and nephew fill their terrariums! I even got four plants instead of three (I think that might be in case one dies in transit), and they were all very healthy and well packaged. There was enough filling to create two 8″ and two 4″ terrariums with some moss leftover. I would definitely recommend this kit. Thanks, JM Bamboo!! Pictured are the two 8″ finished terrariums.”
“I bought this for my son’s school project. I received 4 plants: Parlor Palm, Kalanchoe, Jade plant and White polka dot plant. I had to get extra gravel and soil for his 2.5-gallon container. I still have lots of moss leftover. But, all in all, the kit was a good buy…very convenient. It was also well packaged; I had it shipped to my hotel in the US, then put it in my checked baggage and flew into Toronto, Canada. I did lose the flowers on my Kalanchoe, but everything else was intact. I now want to get more to create my very own project!”
These non-toxic and sulfate-free soy candles are great for any household. They are better than traditional candles because they do not have any artificial ingredients or chemicals in them. Leaving your house smelling fresh without all the worry.
These candles are crafted with 100% biodegradable soy wax. They are hand-poured in the United States and made with 100% organic essential oils.
Priced really well
Packaged very nicely
Burns quicker than typical candles
Takes more than one candle to fill up a large home
“The candle smells wonderful!!! The best part is knowing that it is non-toxic. Thank you.”
“This candle is by far the best soy candle I have bought. The scent actually disperses throughout the house unlike a lot of soy candles but also isn’t too strong. Will definitely keep buying lulu candles.”
“The candle smells amazing! I will definitely order it again. It’s difficult to find good clean ingredients candles.”
Inexpensive Gifts for Vegans
Some of the items on the above list are more expensive than you may be willing or able to spend on a gift for someone. While they are some of the most sought after gifts on a vegan’s wish list, some of them aren’t necessarily budget-friendly.
Below is a small list of gifts considered to be stocking stuffers. They are only ideas for smaller priced gifts for vegans. They’re by no means the only five cheap gift ideas in the world, but a few ideas to get the ball rolling.
Organic acai powder is full of antioxidants and essential nutrients to a vegan diet. This is a gift that will most certainly get used in the vegan kitchen. It is a rather high priced item on every vegan’s grocery list, so receiving it as a gift will be a pleasant surprise.
Organic cacao powder is another staple in the vegan kitchen. This natural powder is great in smoothies, breakfast bowls, and desserts. You can feel assured in this purchase as a gift because it is certain to get used.
As the weather gets colder and drier, lips become victims of being chapped. As a vegan, it can sometimes be difficult to find a good vegan chapstick, so when we come across one we tend to stock up. This is a small gift that will last months.
Cotton socks are thick and cozy! Perfect for cold weather and a great gift. Most vegans are environmentally conscious, as well as health-conscious. These socks will be a nice reminder that they are helping the planet one recycled fabric at a time.
When in doubt, buy a gift card! What is the perfect gift card for a vegan? Well, their favorite local vegan grocery store of course. If you don’t have a grocery store completed dedicated to the vegan lifestyle, Whole Foods is a good alternative. They have an incredible amount of options for vegans and any vegan is sure to love free groceries!
Veganism is gaining popularity around the world, and not just in humans. Dog food companies specifically are beginning to take notice. There are several brands of dog food now that are made exclusively from grains and vegetables, making them completely vegan. For the first time, there is not only a need for vegan dog food, but companies are now competing to make the best vegan dog food.
As fellow vegans, we have put together a list of 15 gifts for a vegan. Whether you are buying a “vegan gift for him” or a “vegan gift for her”, I’m sure you’ll find something perfect for them below.
