What Goes Into A Vegan Gift Basket?

Every unique basket typically has a theme that unites the items within. In terms of specifically vegan options, that simply means that no animal products make the cut. That excludes anything containing meat, dairy, eggs, and honey when you consider consumables, and silk, wool, leather, and other derivatives in terms of household goods, clothing, cosmetics, and beyond.

These are great options when shopping for someone with intolerances, a limited diet, or ethical concerns. Just be sure to double-check the contents of each item if it’s a severe or life-threatening allergy.

This is especially true for companies that aren’t exclusively vegan, and even more so for those producing food themselves, as cross contamination is a very real concern. When it comes to packaged goods, not every company lists exactly what goes into each bundle, or the individual ingredients they use. It’s worth sending them an email or giving them a phone call to be safe.

What Are The Best Food Gift Baskets?

Food is the most popular types focus for gift baskets, since everyone enjoys a sweet or savory treat. It’s a universal language that every speaks and can appreciate! Choose from a wide range of options from the comfort of your home, available for direct delivery with just a few days’ notice.

Harry & David‘s Gourmet Dried Fruit & Charcuterie

World renown for their luxurious selection of gourmet fruits, it all began with the idea of selling fresh pears by mail. This was almost one hundred years ago, ages before online shopping was even remotely possible, putting the innovative businessmen well ahead of their time. They continue to innovate with all sorts of snack assortments, including wine pairing for a truly indulgent experience. You can even find a Vegan Charcuterie Collection worthy of the fanciest five-star restaurants!

Edible Arrangements Fruit Bouquets

Food gifts are often indulgent affairs, which is tough for anyone on a restricted diet. You can still give a healthy edible present that will brighten anyone’s day when you start with fresh fruit! Edible arrangements can turn whole berries, melons, and grapes into works of healthy art, carving them to look like brilliant bouquets of flowers.

Keep in mind that the chocolate-dipped options all contain milk, but you can search specifically by dietary restriction to filter out any unsavory ingredients.
