Gifts! Who doesn’t love surprises?! Well, there are loads of people who don’t, but everyone does love food! These food gifts for vegans will delight even the pickiest of recipients (especially if it includes some vegan chocolates!) and will make your decision easy - as I know finding the perfect gift for a vegan is difficult, especially if you aren’t plant-based yourself. I have included some indulgent and some more snacky vegan food gifts to provide you with as many choices as possible!
These amazing hampers can be delivered straight to your loved one (thanks Amazon!). If you are able to share the time in person, these gift baskets can be shared while enjoying a glass of vegan wine or watching a movie!
I have tried to feature only UK based companies that not only have vegan products, but are environmentally aware too. Some extra advantages are that they source environmentally friendly ingredients and pack locally using biodegradable packaging. The Raw Chocolate Company goes an extra step by planting a tree on your behalf and the Conscious factory is 100% powered by renewable energy sources.
How amazing is that?
