That’s a win-win. So, we’ve compiled our favorite eco-friendly, plant based, and vegan holiday gifts for every special (or obligatory) person in your life.

Serious question—who doesn’t love snacks?

Inside, you’ll discover something for every palate, including cookies, chips, fruit, and nut snacks.

It arrives gift-ready in a box, and you can even include a personal note. Choose from packs that include 10, 12, 20 or 22 snacks, and taking a look at this selection, you’ll definitely want to opt for the biggest one.

For: Your mother, mother-in-law, or both (we won’t tell).

Healthy, nourished skin is always in, and this vegan and cruelty-free skincare set is ideal for someone who is into beauty and sustainability. Every purchase supports rural farmers and regenerative farming practice—now that’s gifting with a purpose! What else is being plant based all about?

The set features three of Thrive’s top sellers, including a face wash, face scrub and face balm beautifully and sustainably packaged. The formulas themselves are impressive and include super plants like juanilama and coralillo which are packed with antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties, and restore your skin’s natural balance.

For: The office White Elephant party or gift exchange.

Chocolate always makes the perfect gift—it doesn’t require batteries or a complicated setup with confusing instructions, and you never have to worry about getting the wrong size. And when you think about it, each piece is like a separate gift for their taste buds.  Satisfy every sweet tooth and then some, these vegan chocolate hazelnut truffles are gluten-free, kosher, and individually wrapped for bite-sized goodness. 

You might have to stop yourself from sneaking a few yourself, since Astor has been a household name for nearly a century and is known for using the finest ingredients, processes and sustainability practice. But, if you’re getting it for your bestie, maybe they won’t mind, and if it’s for a coworker or family member, it would make for a pretty funny conversation starter.  

  1. AprikaLife Handmade Matcha Tea Gift Set

For: Your health-nut friend.

That tea-lover in your circle will most definitely appreciate this matcha tea gift set. Matcha itself is a special kind of green tea leaf packed with antioxidants found in Japan and stone ground into a powder. 

Its bright green color comes from the accelerated photosynthesis process of being partially grown in the shade. Ceremonial matcha is the highest grade you can find, and this gift set will quickly become a morning routine staple for brewing the perfect cup every time. The set itself comes with 1.05 oz of ceremonial matcha powder, a bamboo whisk, spoon, scoop, sifter, ceramic bowl, and whisk holder.
