It’s officially holiday shopping season and to help you find the perfect gift for your loved ones, we’ve curated a list of our favorite items that support plant-based lifestyles, sustainable living, and all around good times!
For your Favorite Foodie
Like many people, we discovered Chef Chloe during the first season of Cupcake Wars and have seen her catapult into celebrity chef fame. Her latest cookbook is filled with fun and playful recipes, all with a vegan twist.
Minimalist Baker is one of our favorite food bloggers. Her recipes are so simple to make, yet are comforting and always full of flavor.
Miyoko Schinner is famous for her vegan artisanal cheeses, which can be found in grocery stores throughout the country. If you’ve ever wanted to try making your own cheese, this book is packed with useful information and recipes to get you started.
The entire Pink Salt team owns a Spiralizer and for good reason: it transforms vegetables into noodles! It’s a must-have tool for novice and expert cooks, and gives you perfect zoodles every time!
Subscription Boxes - the gift that keeps on giving
Louisville Vegan Jerky is one of our team’s favorite snacks. Gift your favorite snacker with the Jerky of the Month Club, which will send a box showcasing two bags of standard flavor jerky and a special small batch jerky.
Purple Carrot is the first plant-based meal kit delivery service on a mission to help customers eat more plants. With over 20,000 edible plants available in the world, you’re bound to discover something new and tasty through Purple Carrot. Even better, most of their packaging is reusable, recyclable, biodegradable, or compostable.
Food waste is a huge issue and some of that is attributed to produce that cannot be sold because of cosmetic imperfections. Imperfect Produce helps close the gap by providing weekly delivery service of organic and conventional fruits and vegetables at a lower cost than grocery stores.
This monthly subscription box is filled with the best cruelty-free and toxin-free items on the market - perfect for the ladies in your life. Each box contains a curated selection of gifts, including makeup, skin care, accessories and snacks!
For the Earth Lovers
You can never have enough reusable grocery bags! This set includes five large bags, and although they fold up quite compact, it can carry up to 50 pounds (equal to 2-3 grocery bags).
Composting can seem like large undertaking, but countertop bins make it so much more manageable. It’s small size takes up very little space, and its design allows for the right amount of air flow while keeping odors and fruit flies out!
Reusable food wraps are fantastic sustainable alternatives to plastic wrap, however, many brands are made with beeswax. Wrappa’s reusable wraps are made with two plant waxes (candelilla and non GMO soy), tree resin and jojoba oil to create a tight (and vegan) seal!
Reusable water bottles have certainly evolved over the last few years. With designs to reflect just about every personality, water bottles can easily become an extension of one’s personal style. If you’re looking something a little more simple yet personal, engraved water bottles are a beautiful option.
For The Traveler
No matter where your wanderlust takes you, the Essential Vegan Travel Guide will help you find the perfect restaurant and accommodations, as well as tips for connecting with local vegans!
Multi-use items are travel must-haves and the Turkish towel is no exception. More than just a towel, the Turkish towel also serves as a scarf, travel blanket, beach towel, picnic blanket, and sarong. Thinner than a traditional towel, the Turkish towel takes up little space in your bag, but packs a big punch!
Stay fashionable while traveling with this vegan leather weekender bag from Pottery Barn. This spacious bag is complete with a shoulder strap and comes in five different colors (black, brown, navy, pink and red).
Save up space in your quart size liquids travel bag by packing Lush shampoo and conditioner bars. These bars look just like soup and are great travel hacks (each bar is good for approximately 80 washes!). Most bars at Lush are vegan (read the labels as some items contain honey) and none is tested on animals.
