What is a vegan basket?
When it’s time to celebrate whether it’s the holiday season, a birthday, the arrival of a new baby, or an upcoming wedding, sending a gift basket is a wonderful way to show the recipient you’re thinking of them and wish them well.
However, if you’re sending a gift basket to someone who follows a vegan lifestyle it can be tricky knowing which gift baskets are appropriate.
A vegan basket is one that does not include any items that contain animal products. This includes the following…
- No food items that contain milk, butter, gourmet cheeses, or other dairy items, eggs, meat, gelatin, whey, or honey.
- Clothing or personal care items that do not include fur, leather, wool, or silk.
- No beauty items that have been tested on animals or contain animal by-products.
You might be thinking that all sounds rather complicated.
There’s nothing worse than sending someone a gift they’re unable to use.
That’s why I’ve put together this list to help you sort through all those vegan gift boxes and easily find the right one to send for any occasion. You’ll make a great choice and find an excellent gift that will be adored and cherished.
Note: If you are looking for vegetarian gift baskets, it is okay to include milk, gourmet cheeses, or other dairy items, and eggs.

What are the best vegan chocolate gift baskets?
Chocolate is always appreciated. Unfortunately, it can be a challenge to find vegan chocolate boxes. There are many vegan chocolate bars on the market, but not as many truffles that come in a nice presentation.
