I only have a handful of vegan friends, but I’ve had enough experience reading labels to know that a whole bunch of things we buy and eat are not vegan-friendly. Thankfully, this year, we at Lifesum have compiling a list of all the things you should get your vegan friend for the holidays.
Bet you didn’t know there’s an entire magazine dedicated to veganism? Well, there is. It covers everything from food, to beauty and skincare, travel, and home. It’s the vegan bible.

There’s an arsenal of vegan health products available; with everything from facial scrub to dry shampoo. Our personal favorite though, is the Japanese Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette from the Body Shop. Smells good and is good.

Give your vegan friend the power to make their own milk. It’s one of the more expensive gifts on this list, but you’re sure to make whoever gets it, very, very happy.

This organic, non-GMO, Veg is better than normal food. Vegan or not, this is the kind of hummus where one dip is just not enough. They have a variety of different flavors; Thai Coconut Curry is our all-time favorite.
