We’re back with another round-up of unique Christmas gifts so you can focus on the joys of gifting this festive season and beyond.
Our gift to you
Everything covered in this list of Christmas gift ideas is Vegan Trademark certified so we’ve done the hard work to ensure they’re suitable for vegans, taking the pressure off you so you can indulge in the joy of choosing the perfect gifts for your loved ones (and you!)
The Vegan Society’s Christmas Hamper
Who doesn’t love a hamper to savour the festive spirit over the days after Christmas? Our first gift recommendation is an extra special one as it’s one we put together ourselves with our Trademark holders and in partnership with The Goodness Project. It’s a first for The Vegan Society and packed with delicious Vegan Trademark certified treats from Italian sparkling wine to fudge, all wrapped up in recyclable packaging and a tree planted with every purchase. It’s perfect for a kind, sustainable and eclectic Christmas present this year.
The Gift of Fun
The Vegan Society has also just launched a fun merch collection that makes for perfect gifts. Ranging from a vegan keyring to tote bags and t-shirts, there’s something to suit every budget. We recommend one of our plastic-free badges for the perfect stocking stuffer, suitable for children and adults alike.
Available on our online shop.
It isn’t Christmas without a little sparkle. Plus, we all have that one friend who’s obsessed with kombucha. If you’re wanting to gift someone a luxurious, non-alcoholic sparkling beverage or want to contribute to festive dinner parties or the Christmas table, Mighty Brew’s premium cork and cage Heritage Kombucha range is the perfect gift. Choose from their Jasmine Bellini, Rose Blush or Elderflower Sec kombuchas. They’re all Soil Association Organic and Vegan Trademark certified and a nice gut-friendly, non-alcoholic alternative with all the luxury of Champagne and Prosecco.
Available at Mighty Brew’s website and Ocado.
A Scent-sory Delight
UpCircle’s beautifully bottled perfumes Flaura and Santelle, made with 16 upcycled botanicals between them, are delightful and sustainable gifting options. In true UpCircle style, they’re refillable and come with the option of being gift-wrapped in furoshiki cloth, an eco-friendly alternative to disposable wrapping paper, meaning you have one less present to wrap. Your gift receiver can keep the circular economy in motion by gifting the cloth as part of a present, too, or returning it for you to re-use. The glass bottle can also be upcycled for décor or sent back to UpCircle to be refilled at 20% less than the standard product price.

Speaking of practical Christmas presents, here are a few more that your near and dear will be bound to love and get good use out of!
Lavender and Lemon Cleaning Products
Made with organic, biodegradable ingredients that are Cosmos and EcoCert approved, free from phthalates, synthetic fragrance, and harmful chemicals, and packaged in stylish aluminium bottles that are refillable, Lavender and Lemon cleaning products are a great eco-friendly and practical gift.

Including sought-after nutrients vitamin B12, vitamin D, iodine and selenium, the VEG 1 range blends convenience and affordability, all while prioritising health.
