7 Vegan Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is around the corner, and it’s time to look into a special gift for that special person(s) in your life. The good news, gifting while keeping your vegan values intact has never been simpler.

Here are 7 vegan gift ideas to show mom some love in 2019:

1. Vegan Card

Every great gift comes with a card, right? Tell mom just how much she means to you in a gorgeous vegan-friendly card adorned with adorable animals and catchy one-liners. Even better, Two Trick Pony donates 5% of its profits to animal welfare and vegan advocacy groups. A definite win, win!   

2. Vegan Accessories

Equip mom with the coolest in vegan fashion accessories like this Pura Botanica designer cosmetic bag. It’s made from faux “ostrich texture,” is super stylish, and it’s perfect for traveling. You may ask, “Traveling where!” And we’ve got your answer right below…

3. Visit an Animal Sanctuary

Most states are home to one or more sanctuaries for rescued or previously farmed animals. If you’ve never been to an animal sanctuary, there’s no better way to have a life-changing experience while doubling it up as a gift for mom. You’ll connect with magnificent animals, learn more about one of your passions, and share in a magical moment with mom.

That’s a gift for the record books.

4. Vegan Shoes

Help the person who brought you into this world ditch those leather-bound, wool-laden shoes of hers and get them to step into a fresh pair of vegan kicks. Vegan shoes are becoming more mainstream by the day, and they’re not just moccasins and hemp slippers anymore. 

5. Vegan Chocolate

Who doesn’t love chocolate? If your mom has a sweet tooth, there are stellar vegan chocolate products sure to have her grinning cheek to cheek with delight. If you’re lucky, maybe mom will share the goodies with you.

 6. Vegan Apparel

When it comes to clothing, we love Herbivore Clothing so much. They craft apparel that is amazingly witty, extremely aesthetically pleasing, and unbelievably comfy to boot. Browse their lineup and we guarantee you’ll find a design mom will love.

7. Vegan Subscription Box

 

The gift that keeps on giving. Whether your mom is new to the vegan world, a vegan veteran or just loves gifts in the mail, the monthly Vegancuts Snack Box, Beauty Box or quarterly Makeup Box is packed with vegan goodness.
