Looking for vegan Mother’s Day gifts? So, your mother went vegan recently, and you’re not sure what to get her since her favourite chocolates are out? Here are some vegan Mother’s Day gift ideas for you, to take the stress out of your Mother’s Day shopping. Plus, a list of what isn’t vegan, so you know what to avoid.
What Shouldn’t You Give Your Vegan Mom?
Buying vegan Mother’s Day gifts needn’t be confusing, but it can be. Particularly if your mom recently went vegan, and you’re not sure what to buy for her or what is/isn’t vegan. Buying vegan Mother’s Day gifts can be stressful if you discover your mother’s favourite bath set (which you get her every year) isn’t vegan.
Here’s what you should never buy a vegan:
- Non-vegan food (food that contains meat, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, whey or other animal-derived ingredients)
- Makeup that has been tested on animals or that contains non-vegan ingredients (frequently used non-vegan ingredients include lanolin, beeswax and carmine)
- Bath and body products that have been tested on animals or that contain non-vegan ingredients
- Clothes made out of fur, leather, wool or silk
- Coats or bedding made with down or feathers
- Jewellery made with leather, feathers or pearls
- Homewares made with bone china
- Candles or other items made with beeswax or other bee products
- Non-vegan wine, champagne, beer or cider – that’s right, some alcohols aren’t vegan as some brands are filtered through egg whites or fishbladder. Find out which ones are vegan on Barnivore.
