25 vegan mothers day gift ideas for every type of mom
After the year we’ve had, mothers deserve something very special on their dedicated day. Whether your gift is for your own mom, partner, best friend, or a brand new mom, this list has something for every type of mom at any price (although this really is the year you need to indulge yourself a little) ). To say thank you for all the homemade meals, endless hours of quarantined entertainment, and the “It’ll be alright” hugs, here are 25 gifts for vegan and veg-nosy Super Moms.
Does mom need a little nudge to get involved in this vegan lifestyle? Instead of a textbook-style starter guide, give her our fun 30-day guide. Each bite-sized chapter helps readers overcome a new hurdle – by the end of the book, all obstacles to veganity are completely removed. The guide also includes 30 easy recipes mom can use to cook vegan herself. It also has cute pink donuts on it, so … that’s really reason enough. (Pro tip: you can accompany this gift with real vegan pink donuts courtesy of Karma Baker).
Not only does this eye mask effectively block light and noise, but it can also be refrigerated for headache relief. It’s machine washable and comes with a money back guarantee for the random mom who doesn’t care. This is a perfect gift for new mothers who need to take a nap whenever they can.
If mom loves her green juice (or has decided to love her green juice) this Hurom juicer is a breeze and works like a charm. It comes in many colors so she can have her favorite color too.
4. Vegan cookbook
Obviously, this is not the gift for a mother who cooks out of necessity and is not fun. However, some people really enjoy their time in the kitchen, and a new cookbook feels like Christmas. We have many cookbook summaries on VegNews.com, but you can also check out vegan cookbooks on Amazon for the latest. Pre-order Books coming out this summer and fall are also a great idea. It is the gift that always gives.
5. Vegan Meal Subscription
In spring 2021, the VegNews editors tested 12 different vegan-friendly meal sets. From fresh, pre-made packages like Plantable Like food helpers Simple feastThese kits have helped us cut down cooking time, reset our healthy eating habits, and open our eyes to fantastic new dishes. Check out our comprehensive guide to vegan meal sets to find out which one is best for your mom.
6th VegNews meal planner
After the countless loaves of sourdough and banana bread last year, Mother could try to get back on track. Give her a little boost with our comprehensive vegan meal planner. Aside from providing healthy recipes and shopping lists, the guesswork out of dinner has become indispensable.
There’s no need to pay a few hundred dollars for a fancy spa retreat – give your mom the gift of relaxation with guided meditation. The hostess Tara Brach combines Buddhist psychology with practical exercises that really change a person’s daily life. If you will allow us to be punny, this Audible series puts the “om” in mom.
8. Relaxing massage
We mentioned earlier that you don’t have to give your mom a spa experience, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a great gift. There are many chain spots out there that offer quality and affordable options such as: Element massage or Massage envy. If you can find a vegan-friendly spa near you, even better. Book her a morning session while you make every effort to make her special for Mother’s Day brunch.
This cookbook is perfect for the mom who is open to herbal products but worried about her children’s nutrition. This accessible guide with child- and adult-friendly recipes and nutritional information supported by paediatricians is more than a cookbook – it is a source of information that even experienced vegans find informative.
10. Vegan leather handbag
Now that the world is starting to open up, mom needs a new wallet to explore the city. There are many vegan brands that offer gorgeous bags, from cute clutches to Mary Poppins-style weekend travelers. Matt and Nat and Gunas are two of our favorites.
11. Smart Sock 2
This is a wonderful invention for the new mom who has to wake up in the middle of the night to worry about her baby’s breathing. This little sock tracks your baby’s heart rate, oxygen levels and sleep, and alerts you when the child is in danger. Who would have thought that a sock would be the new baby monitor?
12. Vegan wine tasting
If mom loves wine, treat her to a vegan wine tour near you. You can search for a vegan-friendly winery near you or check out our California Wine Country Guide for the best options in Sonoma County, CA. She’s going to need someone to cheer with – might as well be you!
Let mom play with this vegan and cruelty free beauty box. Co-curated by vegan actresses Daniella Monet and Evanna Lynch, Kinder, sends sample size beauty products out to Mom every month. It’s a fantastic way to discover new vegan brands and add some fun to the beauty routine. Bonus: Boxes start at just $ 23 per month.
For the mother who likes to do handicrafts but always has little time, this elegant vegan milk machine is just the thing. Forget about straining and soaking – this machine produces any type of nut or oat milk in around 30 seconds at the touch of a button. It’s nothing short of vegan magic.
15. Vegan cake
While we’re on the edible train (no, not that type of food) let’s explore sweets beyond the chocolate box. You can really impress and send mom a full vegan cake (hello, Karma Baker Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cake) or send some healthy candy courtesy of Giselle’s vegan cuisine. Of course, your local vegan-friendly bakery is always a great option. Show your mom some love and support vegan small businesses!
16. Vegan chocolate
There are so many brands of quality vegan chocolate out there both in stores and online, but our pick is Lagustas Luscious Strawberry balsamic caramels, the Wrapped gift set with three bars made from dandelion chocolate and essentially any vegan product at Hotel Chocolat (start with the Vegan basket with dark chocolate).
17. Gourmet vegan cheese
Not all mothers are into candy, and then turn to cheese. There are currently many vegan cheese shops operating, and many ship nationwide. At the highest end there is a subscription to SriMu (Warning: it’s hard to step back after tasting these luxury cheeses.) For a change, buy a gift card or subscription to one of the many vegan cheese shops like New York Riverdel or Austin Rebel cheese.
18. Vegan wine subscription
If wine tasting isn’t an option, a vegan wine subscription is the next best thing. Buy a membership for Vegan Wines’ Wine Club or order a subscription from the vegan organic wine merchant A little wild. Who knows? Maybe she shares it.
19. Gift card for your favorite café
Given that most coffee shops still charge fees for plant-based milk, vegan espresso drinks can be expensive. Ease the surcharge by giving your mom a certificate for her coffee shop (even if it happens to be Starbucks). You may also want to do a quick Google search to find a vegan coffee shop near you. It’s at the top of our heads Miffie’s coffee in Orange County, California; Coffee and plants in Pasadena, CA; Dough and crumbs in Philadelphia, PA; and Dark Hall coffee in Phoenix, AZ.
Not only is this sustainable bath and beauty company vegan, but it’s 100 percent cruelty free and conscious of how ingredients are sourced and packaged. We have linked the above gift sets for vegans only to make it easy for you. These bath bombs, massage bars, and velvety lotions are just what mom needs for a little R&R. We love that they work as well as they smell – which is absolutely amazing.
21. Animal shelter art
Support animal shelters, vegan artists and mothers by giving away a beautiful photo or canvas from a vegan artist. Look at the photographer Sammantha Fischer for inspiration or see if your favorite Farm sanctuary offers prints of their animal inhabitants.
22. Cruelty free nail polish
Salons are reopening, but some moms may still be reluctant to attend and their local salon is not guaranteed to be cruelty-free polished. Treat her to a mani-pedi at home with a new range of vegan nail polishes. Check out our A to Z guide for a list of herbal and cruelty-free polishes to help mom feel beautiful.
23. Gift card for a vegan restaurant
If you don’t trust your culinary skills (and you and your mom feel it’s safe to eat out) celebrate them in a lovely plant-based restaurant with lots of atmosphere. It’s been so long since many of us had dinner indoors – this simple social activity that used to seem trivial has now gained significantly more prominence after months of home-cooked meals and takeaway. Treat your mom to a full dinner or brunch and don’t skip dessert.
24. Sophisticated cheese platter
It looks like we can entertain this summer, and moms who love hosting will itch to break out the vegan sausage board. Every Crate & Barrel or Williams Sonoma has a nice one that lasts forever (great too if you’re last minute shopping), but if you really want to lean into the vegan nook, check out Etsy. We absolutely love it This vegan cheese party set.
Vegan street fair
This is not a shameless plug. Okay, even if it is, a VegNews Subscription is still a phenomenal gift. It is an inexpensive gift that is given over and over again. Even if your mom isn’t herbal yet, get her a subscription to VegNews is one of the most fun and threatening ways to teach her what a vegan lifestyle is all about!
