The winter months are coming! Christmas shopping can be pretty stressful, so it’s always helpful to simplify things with a nice vegan gift set. Thankfully, whether you’re buying for a vegan or just want to shop vegan-friendly, there are tonnes of amazing vegan gift ideas out there.
Below you’ll find a collection of the best vegan and cruelty free gift sets which have been chosen with 2020 in mind – so expect wellbeing and salon care at home to be at the heart of this gift guide. Happy shopping!
BYBI Soft Clean Hands, £29
If there’s one thing that we’ve levelled up this year, it’s hand washing. 20 seconds, sing happy birthday twice, don’t leave the house without any hand sanitizer… Our hands have never been cleaner – or more stripped! So trust me – anyone would be happy with a nice, thoughtful hand care set this Christmas.
This Soft, Clean Hands set from 100% vegan brand BYBI includes their Clean Hands 65% alcohol spray and their cult classic Babe Balm. The Clean Hands spray reduces bacteria on the skin but also includes moisturising ingredients to keep hands soft. For a little extra TLC follow up with the multipurpose Babe Balm which works a treat on any dry, sensitive patches – including your hands! This gift set even comes with a pretty silver reusable pouch that makes it easy to carry round whenever you leave the house.
Lush Dreaming of Christmas gift set, £17.50
Lush has a huge collection of vegan friendly gift sets for Christmas, but the Dreaming of Christmas gift set is one of the best. For under twenty quid you can get three super festive shower and body treats which are already beautifully boxed and gift wrapped.
This gift set includes the caramel scented Yog Nog shower gel, a soothing Sleepy body lotion and Validation – a shower bomb full of myrrh and plastic-free glitter. This is such a nice mixture of indulgent products set to bring any recipient total festive relaxation.
Even better, the wrapping paper is fully recycled and recyclable, the ribbon is made from recycled bottles and the eco pops inside the gift to protect the products are totally biodegradable.
Cowshed Pedicure Kit, £22
Thanks to lockdown, we’ve all had to get a bit more comfortable with beauty treatments at home this year. Whilst salons are opening back up, there’s still reduced capacity and most of us are working with tighter budgets. That’s why an at-home pamper kit like this pedicure set makes a great gift this Christmas.
This Pedicure Kit from Cowshed includes mini versions of their Foot Scrub and Balm, as well as a foot file and socks to lock in moisture overnight. Perfect for a little TLC on one of many nights in.
Evolve Hydration Heroes Christmas Box, £35
One of the worst things about winter? Dry skin! Between harsher weather outdoors and drying heating indoors it can be a battle to keep skin hydrated in the colder months. Enter the Evolve Hydration Heroes Christmas gift set which has been put together with dehydrated skin in mind.
This set includes some of their best selling skincare heroes: their Gentle Cleansing Melt, their super hydrating Hyaluronic Serum 200 and their Daily Renew Face Cream. A super powerful skincare trio that would be suitable for most skin types this Christmas. This gift also comes in a beautiful box, so you’ll save yourself gift wrapping hassle!
All Evolve products are vegan, cruelty-free and made locally in an eco-factory in St Albans. They have a few handy gift sets available, so be sure to check out the rest.
Pai Rosehip Radiance Routine Kit, £49
Here’s a gift set for those with sensitive skin: the Pai Rosehip Radiance Routine Kit. This limited edition kit saves you £24 compared to buying the items individually – total bargain! – and includes Pai’s Chamomile & Rosehip Day Cream, their best-selling Rosehip Oil and their Light Work Rosehip Cleansing Oil. These products are a great foundation for a natural skincare routine – perfect for anyone trying to switch up their beauty products.
All Pai skincare is 100% vegan, cruelty-free and made with sensitive skin in mind.
Peacci Basic Nail Art Kit, £28
Another salon service we’ve had to DIY this year? Manicures! If you know anyone that’s missing their nail art, treat them to the Peacci Basic Nail Art Kit. This is a great starter set for any amateur nail artists who want to use their time indoors to get creative whilst pampering themselves.
This mini kit includes three Peacci nail polishes of your choice (they’re all vegan and there are tonnes of shades to choose from!) plus a nail art brush.
Miss Patisserie Bath Wand Collection, £20
Don’t we all know someone that loves their crystals just as much as they love their bubble baths? Well, this gift set is perfect for them! The Miss Patisserie Bath Wand Collection is inspired by chakra bathing and includes three different bath wands which, once they fizz away, leave behind a gemstone: pink quartz, amethyst or jade.
So that’s both your mood and vibrations improved in just one bath. The only problem? These bath wands are so pretty you almost won’t want to use them!
Axiology Balmies, £29
These 3-in-1 multipurpose balms make wonderful gifts for anyone looking to make their beauty routine a little kinder to the planet. Lip-to-Lid Balmies are wear-anywhere crayons that hydrate like a balm, whilst providing great colour pay off. These Balmies are totally zero waste (which means they’re tube and cap free), they’re also wrapped in paper and rest in a recyclable carrying case. Oh, and they’re vegan and palm oil free too.
These balms are best used on the lips, eyes and cheeks but feel free to get creative! There are three different trios to choose between: the warm, earthy Of The Earth; the summer shades of Malibu Magic or the soft, rosy Cotton Candy Skies.
