We’re heading into what will ultimately be the weirdest 2020 Holiday season we’ve probably ever had. But just because we’re social distancing in a pandemic doesn’t mean you can’t gift your vegan bff or family member!
What’s a good gift for a vegan?
You may be wondering what a vegan even eats, or does… If that’s the case, checkout this vegan diet for beginners where we delve into that. For a quick course, vegans prefer anything that doesn’t come from animals.
To clarify, if it poops, it’s not vegan.
To make things easy for beginner vegans, or those who want to know what the heck to gift someone that lives a plant-based diet, we’ve compiled this extensive gift list.
Here are 20 of the best plant-based gifts you can send (from a distance) that will make your animal-loving friend or loved one swoon, even it’s over Zoom.
Gourmet Vegan Cheeses
Believe it or not, there are so many amazing vegan cheeses out there. For example, The Mansions Pantry offers beautiful & delicious Artisanal Cheeses that even dairy eaters will love.
