Our first-ever cookbook is finally here – just in time for Christmas. ‘The Official Veganuary Cookbook: 100 amazing vegan recipes for everyone’, will be published by HarperCollins Publishers on 7th December 2023 in hardback and ebook, to coincide with Veganuary’s 10th anniversary.

This is a quirky yet helpful gift that’s perfect for helping new vegans. The Vegan Kit contains advice and inspiration cards, telling you everything you need to know about cooking vegan meals, eating out and nutrition.
Vegan Translation Cards (£9.95)
A brilliant gift for vegans who love travelling! These cards translate helpful phrases like “I am Vegan”, “I do not eat meat, fish, dairy, milk, cheese, eggs, honey or animal products” in different languages.
Vegan clothing and footwear
Ethical fashion is a thoughtful present that goes a long way, although some vegan brands can be pricey. Why not treat someone to a vegan slogan tee you know they’ll love, or a new pair of shoes made with animal-free leather?
