When the holidays, a birthday, or other special occasion rolls around, it can be puzzling to know what would be the perfect gift to give to a loved one. Do you take them out to dinner, and get them a sweet treat? See a show? Go on a trip? The options are endless!
Something thoughtful a loved one might not expect is a gift basket or a gift box filled with items and goodies! If you can choose things that cater to their lifestyle (bath bombs, essential oils, sugar scrub) or favorite items (cozy socks, body butter, beauty products) even better.
For the vegan in your life, we’ve shortlisted a few vegan gift ideas that can easily be incorporated into a thoughtful vegan gift box and vegan, plant based, or even vegetarian gift baskets.
Best Vegan Gift Basket Ideas
When browsing vegan gift box ideas, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with options. And, is tricky to know which items are vegan or not!
For those who are unfamiliar, vegans and vegetarians both choose not to eat meat. However, veganism is stricter and also prohibits dairy, eggs, honey, and any other items that are derived from animal products, such as leather and silk.
Here are a few best vegan gift baskets perfect for the vegan in your life!
Proper Good Meals
Proper Good soup and chili basket
One complaint many vegans have is that ready-made food options taste bland and unappetizing. Not the case with Proper Good! Our soups and chilis fit snugly inside a vegan diet and never skimp on flavor making them a perfect vegan gift pack.

Vegan Cookies or Baked Goods Gift Basket
It’s a great idea to include vegan meals in a loved one’s gift basket. But there are just those times when they may be craving something sweet! Enter vegan cookies. Just a few years ago, vegan snacks were harder to come by, existing only chocolate chip cookies.
But fortunately, brands are creating new products to accommodate the vegan lifestyle. Better yet, the products taste incredible!
Here are a few vegan cookies you can easily order and mail to your loved one as part of their vegan gift basket:
Fresh, Dried, or Organic Fruit Gift Basket
A sweet (but healthy!) treat … say no more! A fruit basket filled with delicious goodies is a perfect vegan gift basket idea for a celebration–like a birthday, anniversary, or graduation party.
Edible arrangements are a popular service for fresh fruit baskets or dried fruit baskets delivery. There are tons of fruit options to choose from, so if you know your recipient prefers or doesn’t like a certain kind of fruit, you can accommodate that!
Vegan Wine or Champagne Basket
Alcohol delivery gets a little tricky due to identification/age limit rules that vary from state to state.
However, once you’ve determined your loved one’s state does permit alcohol delivery, Instacart, Foxtrot, and GoPuff all have alcohol delivery options, so choose the best bottle of vegan wine or bubbly for your loved one and send it off!
If a wine label is listed as “unfined” or “unfiltered,” that lets you know that the wine does not contain animal products and is considered vegan making it ideal for vegan baskets or vegan birthday gifts!
Vegan Spa Set
It’s harder than you may think to find beauty or spa products that are vegan. Therefore, your vegan loved one may have a tough time finding self-care products that fit within their lifestyle.
You can help! Within their vegan gift basket, compile a few vegan-friendly spa products, like bath salts, body wash, and bath bombs, making it a great care package
A few great vegan and cruelty-free products come from companies like Beauty Without Cruelty, Pacifica, and Pure Purpose Cosmetics. Most even include gift basket-ready options, like trial sizes and sets of popular products!
