When you buy from this list you are also supporting our vegan non-profit, to help create a kinder, greener, more compassionate future, as we earn a small portion of sales from every Amazon Affiliate link used below. Now let’s get into our top picks…

For the one ready to start a debate with Uncle Joe over holiday dinner 

From holiday-themed pullovers to more year-round vegan T-shirts and hoodies, treat yourself or a loved one to vegan clothing and make a statement this year. Just think of all the great debates that can be had with that one controversial uncle of yours when you pull up to the gathering wearing a “Tis the season to go vegan” sweater.

For the one with the sweet tooth 

Add a twist to the usual holiday hot cocoa and cookies, with this cheeky vegan gift basket. Pick up a reusable basket, throw in your favorite vegan hot chocolate mix and cookies, and add a sassy vegan mug like this one they can pull out every time someone asks them about their protein.

For the one who’s always in the gym 

With 30 grams of plant-based protein a scoop, Vega Sport protein powder is the perfect Christmas gift for that friend or family member trying to hit their new years goals. Whether they’re a veteran gym bro, or new into fitness, you can’t go wrong with this protein gift bundle that comes with a free Vega shaker bottle too. Heck, at that price you might as well treat yourself to one too!

For the one who always says “but cheese”

We get, and we’ve all been there at one point or another, but hey, it’s 2021 and there’s never been a better time to try delicious plant-based cheeses, whether it be for your health, the environment, or the animals. If you have a friend who’s been wanting to make the switch, or already has and just loves plant-based cheese, this cheesecloth, and plant-based cheesemaking guidebook makes the perfect pair for the cheese lover in your life this year!

For the One love of your life (your fur baby)

Who else here buy gifts for their companion animals? I mean my cats are my children so you know I’m going to wrap their gifts under the tree each year like I would for any human child. These are your babies, your comfort after a stressful day, your cuddly companion, and your adventure buddy. Show them how much you care with a new vegan fur heated bed, vegan dog treats, or cruelty-free shampoo.

For the one who’s always snacking

Who doesn’t love trying out new vegan snacks? Whether the recipient is vegan or not, it’s always fun trying plant-based versions of traditional foods we grew up loving. From vegan Nutella, to jerky, mac and cheese, and crackers, there’s something to try for any snack lover. Ranging from $3-$8, these snacks make the perfect stocking stuffers!

For the one that loves makeup, not animal testing 

It’s 2021 and we are saying yes to expressing ourselves through however much or little makeup we choose while saying no to outdated cruel practices. There are so many cruelty-free and vegan brands nowadays that don’t test on animals, most of which are even more affordable and accessible than brands that do! Elf cosmetics is a prime example of this, with their entire brand consisting of cruelty-free and vegan products. They have a wide variety from putty blush, to eyeshadow, to makeup mist, plumping lip gloss, eyebrow pencils, and brushes. Even better, all of these products we’ve mentioned range from $4-$15, so no matter your budget this year we’ve got you covered!
