Amazing Vegan Gift Ideas for Birthdays
Make things easier for you or for your vegan friends while making the occasion a more memorable one with these fantastic vegan gift ideas that we have compiled just for you. We know that veganism abstains from eating and using animal products, so as a sign of respect for your friends' way of living and philosophy, choose only vegan-safe products as gifts.
What are vegan-friendly products? From food to clothing to everyday tools, vegan-friendly products are cruelty-free and plant-based and should be free from animal products. For instance, wool sweaters are not vegan-friendly because wool came from sheep. Cookies, breads and other pastry delights are considered vegan only if they are dairy-free and gluten-free.
Beauty products that have been tested on animals and contain lanolin, an animal-based wax, are absolutely no-go for vegans. Always check the ingredients of perfumes, bath essentials and skin care products to make sure they are vegan-friendly. Most brands indicate if their products are cruelty-free and most of the time these products bear a seal of approval from various vegan organisations and animal-rights groups.
