Looking for vegan gifts for teens? More and more young people are choosing to follow a vegan lifestyle – Gen Z is now the most meat-free generation. Numbers have increased rapidly in the last year, too; over half a million people signed up to Veganuary in 2021, a huge increase on 2020. So a hit list of brilliant vegan gifts that teens will love is a must these days!
We’ve chosen just a few of our favourites from fellow small businesses for you:
Teens love to bake and the Rainbow Bagel Bread Kit from Honeywell Biscuit Co not only looks amazing but is sent out in eco-friendly packaging and a percentage from every sale is donated to Farm Africa ? £17.00
Joe & Seph’s do a great range of vegan popcorn – always a teen favourite. Their Vegan Gourmet Popcorn Selection Box of 4 snack packs makes a brilliant and thoughtful small gift. £8.50
We love EVERYTHING from Nono Cocoa. The Vegan Chocolate Gift Box is only one of many gorgeous gifts to choose from. It looks amazing, tastes amazing, and is free from gluten, dairy, nuts and artificial ingredients. What’s more, the Nono Cocoa company provides work opportunities for people with autism and buys from small business suppliers. Win, win! £14.50
We’ve long been fans of The Naked Marshmallow Co and so we just had to include their Vegan Edition Marshmallow Toasting Gift Set. It comes with its own cute little burner and bamboo skewers, as well as two flavours of vegan marshmallow. Or if you just want vegan marshmallows for s’mores, they sell those separately too.
Lastly, a foodie gift with a difference. The Online Vegan Cookery Event from Kitchenjoy Cookery School is a 1.5 hour Zoom session that will teach you about how to fulfil your body’s nutritional requirements through plant based products, while cooking delicious and healthy meals from an ingredient list sent out in advance. Perfect for new vegans! £30.00
The award-winning Kale 3D Cleanse from Nourish London isn’t cheap but is something a bit special if you want to spoil them with a luxury skincare gift. The iconic colour changing face cleanser is gentle but effective and perfect for problem teenage skin. £25.00
We love the Vegan Lip Balm Making Gift Set from Aura Organics. You get to choose your own scents and make four lip balms. Super fun and much more interesting than just buying off the shelf! £20.00
Dust & Things do a great range of vegan cork wallets. Made from sustainable, eco-friendly naturally vegan cork, they look great and can be personalised with a monogram or name too. From £25.00
Last but not least, there’s the How To Cook Everything Vegan Print from Paper Plane. Perfect for teens finding their way around the kitchen! £12.95 A3 size, unframed.
Of course, we can’t complete this list without reminding you that our unisex T-shirts and sweatshirts are PETA-approved vegan (as well as being organic, fair wear and sustainably sourced). Have a browse through our clothing collection if you’d like to find out more.
