The Ultimate Guide to Gifts for Vegetarians and Vegans
Food-related Christmas gifts are one of the most thoughtful you can buy for someone who has everything but likes to stock up on their favourite nibbles every year. From vegetarian Christmas hampers to creative cookbooks, here are the crème de la crème of veggie and vegan presents this year.
The British Hamper Company has a wide range of vegan gift baskets for you to browse, giving you plenty of choice and not limiting you to one or two products based on your dietary needs.
For example, the Vegan Treats Gift Box includes a wide range of vegan friendly treats such as Perry Court Farm’s sweet apple crisps – which are not only animal friendly, but friendly on your waistline too; they contain one percent fat and are under 70 calories.
Cheap and cheerful, this vegan hamper is sure to delight any who receive it and won’t break the bank at only £26.95, which includes UK next day delivery.

Alternatively, for those who love animals, but also love food containing dairy products, you can check out the British Hamper Company’s selection of vegetarian hampers.
The Traditional Treats Hamper (see below) will only set you back £30.97 for a range of different artisan British delicacies, including crumbly Cotswold Fudge and rich Venezuelan dark chocolate.
Surprise someone with this vegetarian Christmas hamper and gift them brilliantly cheesy cheddar biscuits, that can be enjoyed either warmed up or cold. Also included is a luxurious bag of premium hickory smoked almonds and cashews for the person who loves good quality nibbles.
There are nine vegetarian Christmas hampers to choose from, so you won’t need to worry about having a limited choice of gifts for vegetarians. With this wide range of completely vegetarian safe hampers you can be sure to find the perfect treat for your animal loving friend or colleague, or to just spoil yourself.
For a treat this Christmas, you could spend a little more money and go all in for a Vegan Gourmet Hamper, the most expensive vegan gift basket, but the most luxurious. Perfect for either a vegan or vegetarian, this Christmas hamper would be hugely popular, without harming any animals in the process.
For just £65 you can indulge on everything the British Hamper Company has to offer a vegan, with 11 carefully selected quality treats, including Fairtrade English Breakfast Tea from the London Tea Company to Miller’s Elements Smoked Flour and Red Hot Chilli Crackers.
The Tregroes waffles are a deliciously sweet accompaniment to a nice cup of tea. Based in Llandysul in Wales, Tregroes employs people from the town and the surrounding area, helping to support their local community.
If you are trying to find the perfect way to say thank you or that you love someone this year, then this vegan gift hamper would be the perfect way to show just how much you appreciate them.
Of course, there are alternative gifts available for vegans and vegetarians. Cookbooks specifically written for those who have chosen to cut out meat and/or dairy can be the one thing that was missing from a person’s kitchen.
New for 2018 and available on Amazon for £14.99, Christina Pirello’s Back to the Cutting Board is a cookbook that is designed to make you fall in love with cooking again. All the recipes are plant-based and so perfect for anyone looking to spice up their vegan dishes at home.
Christina will take you through all her rules to cooking, such as whether you should taste the food or not, how to use left overs and where to get quality fresh ingredients without paying more than you need to.
Lush carries a large collection of vegan-friendly beauty products, including lipsticks, lip balm and eye liner. This extensive range of animal friendly cosmetics is available just in time for Christmas.
Their new ‘None of Your Beeswax’ lip balm could be the perfect vegan gift, named so because it was not made with any beeswax and so is completely animal friendly. Priced at £7.50/12g the new range has an overall rating of four stars on the Lush website, with people saying it works just as well, if not better, than most alternatives.
A Yankee Candle can bring light and great smells into someone’s home. Normally you would avoid buying someone who is vegan a candle, due to the wax used to make them, but that is not the case with a Yankee Candle.
Aside from their beeswax taper candles, which are only sold in America, all of their candles are vegan friendly and safe to gift anyone who might appreciate it. For just under £24 you can get a candle from their Christmas range and help remind someone of the beach during the cold, long nights of winter, or make their house smell like gingerbread with their Frosty Gingerbread Candle.
Stick to this list and you can’t go far wrong. These were just a few examples of the huge range of products you can spoil yourself, or a friend or loved one with. Be it a luxury hamper or a new cookbook, any item on this list will feel personal and make the recipient feel loved and appreciated.
