vegan GIFT baskets

A basket brimming with goodies will definitely get you in any vegan’s good books. They tend to sell out fast, so you’ll have to be quick!

You’ll find all kinds of vegan assortments on Bunny James’ website. But specializing in specialty diets, the entire site is not vegan-friendly. So be sure to order the right one!

This is another subscription option but curated specifically for the spiritual vegan in your life. Including items like crystals, divination tools, self-care items, and jewelry, this basket of goodies will be sure to please the recipient’s inner goddess!

Alternatively, why not get creative and put your own basket together? This means you can tailor it to the recipient, and it shows that you’ve put thought into your gift. Fill it with cooking and cupboard essentials, or go for a combination of food, beauty products, and stocking stuffers.
