1 Vegan Ice Cream Pint Club

Thanks to packing innovation (and dry ice), frozen foods can weather the—er—weather of overnight travel. While this novelty seems a bit extravagant, it also offers a way to support small vegan businesses even when you live five states away. Companies such as Salt and Straw, NadaMoo, Clementine’s Creamery, and Frankie & Jo’s all ship packs of their vegan ice cream. With luck, your gift recipient will share a pint or two.

2 Gourmet vegan chocolates

Vegan chocolate can be found anywhere, but when it’s being given as a gift, it must be fancy. We’re talking ornate wrappings, delicate chocolate art, and decadent fillings. There are several luxury vegan chocolatiers out there, but to start, try Laderach, Nhiar Chocolates, La Maison du Chocolat, or Lagusta’s Luscious. Forget candy canes—vegan truffles really bring out the jolliness of the season.


3Vegan cheese subscription 

Ever since vegan cheese evolved from the rubbery substance of yesteryear to the divine food it is today, there have been vegan cheese addicts. Many locally owned vegan cheese shops offer subscriptions—like Rebel Cheese in Austin, TX—but if your area is lacking a plant-based cheese monger, rely on SriMu. The Ritz Carlton of vegan cheese, this artisan vegan company offers both subscriptions and single holiday boxes of the funkiest, most complex, and mouthwatering cheeses money can buy. It may sound like we’re exaggerating, but one bite of this cheese, and you’ll get it.

4 Vegan wine club

Save your giftee the hassle of scrolling through Barnivore.com by giving them a curated box of vegan wines. There are several options—there’s the subscription-based wine club option or the one-time gift option. We recommend checking out Winc for a personalized subscription, Vegan Wines for its rotating vegan partnerships (think wine and plant-based charcuterie or chocolate), and Sip & Share Wines for its virtual SipSerpiences (it comes with a four or seven-wine sampler pack). Cheers!

5 DIY cookie decorating kits

It’s okay to love to decorate but not love to bake. For this person, a cookie, cupcake, or brownie decorating kit is the perfect gift. Try Erin McKenna’s Gingerbread Men Kit for a gluten-free option or Sticky Fingers Bakery for an assortment of drool-worthy cupcake, brownie, and sandwich cookie decorating kits. No judgment if you find the ingredients half-eaten before starting the assembly. That peanut butter frosting from Sticky Fingers is darn good. 


6 Vegan virtual marketplace subscription

Brace yourself, because there is the strong possibility of tumbling down the rabbit hole with this gift. Virtual vegan markets are like walking into a supermarket only stocked with vegan items. From novelty products to local brands, the options are mesmerizing. Either procure a gift card or subscription to one of these digital shopping centers (we’re big fans of GTFO and PlantBelly) or purchase a themed and curated bundle of goodies. You can’t go wrong here! 


7 Vegan meal kit

Last spring, we tried 13 different meal kits. From frozen and pre-made to do-it-yourself, you can find a comprehensive report of our thoughts here. We stand by the fact that there is a meal kit for everyone, which means there is a meal kit for everyone on your shopping list.

9 Vegan baked goods

From a box of quarter-pound cookies to flaky croissants that taste fresh from the oven, anyone with a semblance of a sweet tooth will melt over a box of expertly made vegan baked goods. Several vegan bakeries have perfected their nationwide shipping game, but here are a few places to get started:  Karma BakerGiselle’s Vegan KitchenL’artisan Creative Bakery, and Southern Roots Bakery.


10 Exceptional coffee or tea

No two coffee grounds are alike, just as all tea varieties have a unique taste to them. For the coffee or tea snob, a bag of high-quality beans or loose-leaf tea is the perfect gift. Start with your recipient’s favorite coffee or tea shop to see if they sell their own products. If not, try out Tradition Coffee Roasters, Stereoscope, or The Te Spa.
