Lani has gained a status among the vegan community as a brand that speaks passionately against animal cruelty and promotes cruelty-free living and natural and healthy lifestyle choices. The brand has donated to over 20 charities to date and throughout 2020 Lani will be donating to the following four charities: Amicii Dog Rescue, Friend Farm Animal Sanctuary, Gut Aiderbichl and Slaughterhouse Survivors.

Could you buy a more vegan-friendly gift? Plus, we think Lani's items are perfectly designed to be gifted, with their glass bottles and jars coated in vivid and fun colours!

Raw Halo's chocolate bars are all vegan-friendly, as they use added lucuma powder and creamed coconut for their dreamy vegan mylk chocolate. They source their ingredients from small, organic farms that trade their produce for a fair price and treat their communities well. We love these cute little chocolate bars as an extra in a little care package or gift box that is meant to cheer someone up or surprise the people you love with completely vegan brands and items.

7. Candles, from £10

We are delighted to be able to stock Tiger & Co. candles who use soy wax grown and processed in Europe, instead of the typical non-vegan beeswax. The reason beeswax is not classed as vegan is because the bees on bee farms are harmed or killed during the process of making honey and beeswax. Their soy wax is also non-GMO and we only stock their candles that use 100% essential oil, so no synthetic fragrances are used. All of their ingredients are both vegan and cruelty free and they use metal candle tins, which are both infinitely recyclable. Available in 5 different scents: Full Moon, Exhale, Soleil, Fireside and Blume. We also stock their tealights, which are beautifully presented and perfect as a present for someone.  

8. Cookies, from £3.20

  sharer bag of vegan coconut cookies. Rhythm 108 are a vegan and gluten free snack brand. The craftsmanship, care, and appreciation of the little things made them think of food as so much more than just fuel – it was a way of expressing creativity and a means to forming close, real relationships. They wanted to take this passion and local artisan tradition and use it to create delicious treats that were based on their modern values – plant-based, natural, and wholesome. They are serious about making an impact and a change, and their products do just that with all natural and animal friendly ingredients these are a great little treat for someone who loves to drink, tea or coffee or has a sweet tooth. We stock these in two different flavours: coconut & double chocolate hazelnut.  

9. Organic Nut Butter, £5

The founder of Norty, Elspeth had always loved nut butters and wanted to create vegan nut butters that were wholesome, organic and came in sustainable packaging. She really cares about the world that we live in and so set Norty up as a Community Interest Company so that all profits go to great local causes. We think these quirky little jars full of yumminess is the best little vegan gift and we adore that the money you spend on this goes to charities in need. We stock six different flavours: salted caramel, chocolate coffee, chocolate hazelnut, chocolate orange, smoky maple bacon and chilli.
