Even though I only give a few material gifts, I am almost desperately looking for inspiration for beautiful and meaningful gifts. And it’s not that easy to find what you’re looking for. I am therefore extremely grateful every time I find a cool idea somewhere for a gift that really gives pleasure to the recipient and is at best sustainable.
To make it easier for you, I have put together this list with gift ideas for vegans and non-vegans and I hope there is something suitable for you.
Just have a look and let yourself be inspired. I wish you a lot of fun giving and receiving presents!
A Hydrophil toothbrush subscription
Admittedly, a toothbrush subscription does not sound particularly sexy at first glance. However, this is a rather clever and ecological gift, with which you can also do something good, because 10% of the profits go to the aid organization Viva con Agua. The toothbrushes are completely water-neutral, fair & vegan and every three months there is a new one in the recipient’s mailbox. There is also a travel toothbrush. Cool!
You can get the toothbrush subscription directly in the Hydrophil-Shop* for 19,50 €.
Cool vegan socks from Minga Berlin
Christmas socks are like gingerbread and cookies. However, they have now gone far beyond their status as an embarrassment gift. Especially the socks from Minga Berlin. The beautiful socks are 100% vegan, not expensive and available in very cool colors and patterns. I think they are great too!
A sustainable and fair Mari Cat T-shirt from Armedangels
The label “Armedangels” is completely committed to sustainable and fair fashion and more than 90% of the range is completely vegan. So is this cool Mari Cat T-shirt made of 100% organic cotton. Not only for cat lovers. And I guarantee you: The recipient will purr with joy. *meau
A cork belt from bleed clothing
Cork – what a great material! Sustainable and versatile. Bleed clothing now offers this chic belt. It consists of 35% cork and 65% waste paper. It is also free of chrome and nickel. All components are fair and organic, in addition the belt is 100% vegan and robust. There is one version for male and one for female. What more do you want?
A coffee-to-go cup made of rice husks
The fact that the flood of paper cup plastic lids from the countless coffee-to-go shops is one of the biggest plagues of our consumer society has not only been known to us since yesterday. The solution for all coffee lovers who don’t want to do without their coffee on the go: Give them this reusable cup made from ground rice husks. Nature and the recipient will be eternally grateful to you!
The mug is available in two different colours for 14.95 € at Amazon.
Time instead of material
And of course my favorite present should not be missing: “Time instead of stuff” is the motto. Give away what is most precious to you and the recipient: time. Time with each other and for each other. That can be cooking together, going to the cinema, a nice bicycle tour, a picnic, babysitting and much more. There are no limits to your imagination.
It’s amazing how many vegan cookbooks have recently come onto the market! The offer is now huge, we get every week a new one on the table. There are also children’s books on veganism and some good films on DVD.
