Vegan gift baskets are some of the most thoughtful and useful gift ideas for friends, colleagues, and relatives.
Whether full of tasty vegan snacks or eco-friendly products, vegan gift baskets spread the message of love and compassion.
As vegan snack and beauty box curators, we know a thing or two about vegan products. Here’s our take on the best vegan gift baskets that’ll impress on any occasion.
What To Put In A Vegan Gift Basket?
Deciding to gift a vegan basket, box or care package does take a little thought.
Firstly, it’s important to establish what kind of gift basket it will be.
Some common vegan gift baskets are:
- Vegan food baskets – This could be vegan snacks, fruit, cooking products, or herbs and spices
- Eco-gift baskets – These baskets contain sustainable products that are planet-friendly.
- Beauty gift baskets – Vegan beauty baskets contain everything from skincare, makeup, and cosmetic products.
- Holiday gift baskets – Themed baskets are popular around Christmas, Easter, and many other holiday dates.
Secondly, it’s very important these gift baskets are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. This can become difficult when choosing beauty products, as not all vegan products are also cruelty-free and vice versa. Don’t know the difference? Check out this vegan skincare guide to help you choose the right beauty products.
Lastly, you’ll want to curate these vegan and cruelty-free products into a single basket that matches the theme and fits perfectly before gifting it to your giftee.
