Looking for gift ideas for your vegan girlfriend? Perhaps her birthday is coming up, maybe you want to get ahead of Christmas shopping or you want to get her an anniversary gift on time this year.
Whatever the occasion, vegan gift shopping has become progressively easier over the years, thanks to the increased variety of available options.
Now you can get all types of vegan makeup, cosmetics, clothing, treats and more, to give the one you love a special and thoughtful gift.
On the other hand, there are a lot of inconspicuous products that you may have gotten for your partner in the past but may turn out to be non-vegan, such as silk lingerie or luxury cosmetics that feature honey as one of the ingredients.
The good news is that we’ve put together a rather comprehensive list of the best vegan products that you can give as a gift to your girlfriend to make the process a lot easier for you.
Best Vegan Gifts for Your Girlfriend
Whether your girlfriend is an avid animal lover, a foodie or a fitness enthusiast- there’s a perfect vegan gift available out there for her and we’re going to help you find it! Read on for some awesome ideas.
1. Yonanas Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker
According to most vegans who’ve tried it, Yonanas is the best thing since the Beyond Burger, and that’s saying a lot!
The frozen treats made with Yonanas taste just like soft-serve ice cream, but with a sweet banana flavor. That’s because they’re made from overripe bananas that have been frozen and blended to perfection.
While some might argue that you can get the same result with a regular blender, you probably wouldn’t get the same texture that’s offered by the Yonana Frozen Healthy Dessert Maker and this is what really makes this one the ideal gift for your vegan girlfriend, especially if she has a sweet tooth!
2. The Seitanic Spellbook
Although you wouldn’t guess from the title, the Seitanic Spellbook is actually a brilliant vegan recipe book that’s full of genuinely delicious and innovative recipes.
It also has some beautiful artwork and witty commentary in between that’s sure to keep your girlfriend smiling and intrigued as she prepares the recipes. Even if she’s not an avid everyday cook, this book would make for an interesting addition to any vegan’s coffee table book collection and thanks to the title and content it’s sure to be a conversation starter.
If your lady friend is religious, however, then you might want to skip on to the next suggestion, as the wordplay on the book title and cover might offend them.
3. The Veganomicon
If your girlfriend is one of those people that constantly want to try new recipes that they find online, then they’ll appreciate this candid vegan recipe book. The Veganomicon is filled with simple yet delicious recipes that are packed with flavor and nutrition without the animal suffering.
It doesn’t have the bells and whistles featured in the other book, and it’s not as visually appealing but it’s packed with value.
4. 6 Quart Electric Pressure Cooker
Beans are a staple food for many vegans because they’re a great source of protein and fiber, plus they’re incredibly satiating and cost-effective. However, they do take long to cook and there’s always a risk of over or undercooking them.
That’s why this electric pressure cooker is such a life saver, because it cuts cooking time literally in half and unlike regular pots, you can time it as well to get the consistency of the recipe right every single time. So if your girlfriend hasn’t bought this one for herself yet, she’ll appreciate having it once you give it to her.
5. Euro Cuisine Yogurt Maker
Making vegan yoghurt at home is tough, especially when you consider the strict temperature requirements that you have to follow in order to get the final product just right.
The Euro Cuisine Yoghurt Maker takes much of the hard work out of the equation because it allows you to set the culture and leave it to do the rest, which is impossible to do with other machines as they require more active involvement from the person making the yoghurt. You girlfriend can use this to make yoghurt out of coconut, soy and other nut milks.
6. Matt & Nat Scarlett Handbag
One of the things that women struggle with once they go vegan is finding stylish and high-quality accessories, especially handbags. The Matt &Nat. vegan apparel brand seeks to solve this problem by making vegan products that are beautiful, trendy and well-made.
