24 Vegan Wedding Gifts That Show Just How Much You Care
If you've just been invited to your first vegan wedding, you might be scratching your head over what to get the happy couple. Allow us to let you in on a little secret, though: Finding the perfect wedding gift for a vegan couple is really no different than shopping for any other unique wedding gift—all it takes is a little extra thought.
For starters, it's important to remember that the soon-to-be newlyweds care about the Earth (and all its creatures) just a little bit more than the average couple. Chances are, they've already planned a fully vegan menu for their big day—which means no meat, fish or dairy—and have made great effort to ensure that every possible detail is cruelty free and responsibly made, right down to the wedding favors.
Veganism is likely a huge part of their everyday lives, too—and not just when it comes to the kind of food that they eat. Strict vegans carefully research both the materials and manufacturing processes behind almost everything that they buy, from skincare and cleaning products to clothing; so it only makes sense that your wedding gift should reflect those same values.
While we always recommend checking out a couple's wedding registry first, there's nothing wrong with looking for a thoughtful gift that reflects a couple's personal interests or beliefs. Keep scrolling for some of the best vegan wedding gifts we've come across that'll definitely leave a lasting impression.
