This guide is here to help guide you toward kind and meaningful gifts that have a lot of heart.

Gifts For Dogs

Nothing says “I care about you” like a gift for your friend’s fur babies! Dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and other furry companions are often left off the gift list at the holidays. So when you take the time to put together a package for them, that thoughtfulness is really noticed and remembered!

Check out this comprehensive guide to plant-based dog treats and resources! You can wrap up a package of treats with a festive toy, or put together a full gift basket of goodies. Here are just a few great options.

Make your own s’mores kit complete with a package of vegetarian marshmallows, vegan graham crackers, and some quality vegan chocolate bars.

Vegan Movie Night Kit

Wrap up a must-see vegan documentary DVD in a gift basket with popcorn, a nutritional yeast shaker, vegan candy (Skittles, Swedish Fish, and Sour Patch Kids are all vegan), a soy candle, and some cozy fuzzy socks. Or skip the DVD, pick a Netflix movie, and get ready for a romantic night in!

Charitable Donations & Virtual Adoptions

This vegan gift guide wouldn’t be complete without one of the greatest gifts that give twice—charity donations! Many nonprofit organizations offer sponsorships or virtual animal adoptions that you can gift to a friend or loved one. Often they will send a certificate or card to the recipient letting them know about the gift you made in their honor.

Many nonprofits have online shops with items that give back and also make great gifts. Here are a few of our favorites.
