1) For The Chocolate Lover: Order ANYTHING from any of these 100% vegan companies!
2) For the Bacon Lover:
3) For the Athlete / Fitness Enthusiast:
4) For the Foodie: Treat them to lunch or dinner at their favorite restaurant, or get them a gift certificate! Many vegans LOVE eating, and will tell you all about their favorite restaurants if you ask. But if you still need suggestions, here are a few restaurants that ANY foodie will love, whether they are vegan or not:
5) For the Shoe, Purse, and Fashion Lover: Shoes, purses, wallets, bags, belts, gift cards, and more are available from these 100% vegan stores!
6) For the Animal Lover:
If Earthlings is too intense (many of the images of animal suffering are quite graphic, and can be disturbing even for those who are not vegans/animal lovers), there are many other great documentaries you could offer to watch. Highly recommended is Vegucated (hilarious, touching, informational), which follows three New Yorkers as they attempt to go vegan for 6 weeks. Cowspiracy is an excellent documentary for anyone who cares about the environmental impacts of what we eat. Forks Over Knives (discusses compelling and encouraging health benefits of a whole food, plant-based vegan diet) is great for anyone interested in the relationship between food and chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and more. Again, simply making the effort to understand why your friend or loved one is vegan by watching any or all of these films will mean so much to them. Sometimes the best gifts are the ones that don't cost much money, but show that you care.
Thanks for reading. Please share this post with anyone who loves a vegan. Happy holidays, peace, and love to all who live.
