17 Excellent Vegan Holiday Gift Ideas for Her
Who’s on your gift list this holiday season? Whether mom, wife, BFF, or co-worker, this is the definitive list of vegan gifts for her.
Ah, the season of gift-giving. There’s so much to it, right? Making the list, setting budgets—and then, of course, determining what exactly to gift. The older we get, hopefully, the less we come to expect gifts.
But it’s that delight in the unexpected—that someone went out of their way to find the perfect gift—that brings us joy and makes the world go ‘round just a bit smoother.
Then, there’s the last two years, right? Let’s not look past the public health crisis that has taken an unthinkable toll on the world. Gifts may seem indulgent at a time like this, but consider: the more we love and are loved, the more we pay attention to our personal and collective well-being, the more that translates to a better, healthier, and kinder world.
So, what to gift her? Prioritizing vegan products a woman won’t typically gift herself makes shopping for the ladies on your list incredibly easy. From clean beauty and vegan skincare to kitchenware, chocolate, and so much more, the best gift ideas for women run the gamut.
Of course, you can’t go wrong with a Kinder Beauty subscription. We offer both gift cards and beauty box subscriptions. These make for great gifts for the beauty lovers on your list and the new productphiles (is that a word?) who can’t seem to get enough to test and try out.

Plus, it makes one tasty latte. (Use oat milk for the best froth.)
This brewing kit contains everything needed for the perfect matcha tea experience. Set includes an exquisite white ceramic bowl (chawan) and whisk holder, bamboo whisk (chasen), bamboo tea scoop (chashaku), and stainless steel sifter.
And here's where you can find matcha tea.

An ode to the potent tea leaf, give this gift to the scent lovers on your list.

In addition to being vegan, Le Labo uses clean ingredients in all of its beauty and perfume products as well as ethical labor. Its packaging is sustainable and many of its products are created to be refillable to reduce waste.
