15 Gifts That Aim To Please Your Pickiest Vegan Pals

Cortne Bonilla
·4 mins read

Take it from me, your friendly (but picky) vegan, purchasing a gift for a plant-based pal is by no means an easy endeavor. For starters, all vegans are not created equal — we lead entirely different lifestyles, each with our own unique set of priorities and dietary restrictions. (Just google its definition and you'll get hit with a barrage of widely varying results.) This brings us back to the issue at hand: there's a special vegan someone in your life who you'd like to bestow an appropriate present upon. Luckily, there are a few crowd-pleasing gift options out there that already come picky-vegan approved.

Whether you're shopping for the eco-conscious earth-lover, the snack-obsessed organic pursuer, or someone who just really enjoys a unique clean-beauty buy, the right plant-friendly present is just a few clicks away. Ahead, find everything from snappy salad spinners to spot-on cookbooks and cheeky graphic tees that are sure to please that favorite discerning vegan of yours.
