Vegan beauty has a couple different components which can get a little confusing. For a makeup or beauty product to be considered completely vegan, it has to be both cruelty free (none of its ingredients were tested on animals in the product development process) and contain only vegan ingredients.
A lot of people don’t know this, but there can be a large number of non vegan ingredients used in makeup products that you have to look out for, including literally crushed up bugs!
Ingredients like carmine, beeswax, and keratin would not be considered vegan and are red flags that you need to look out for because they are very commonly used in the beauty industry.
All of these beauty products are 100% vegan and would make great vegan Christmas gifts this year!
Hum Nutrition Let It Grow Set
This super popular supplement brand has lots of vegan products, including this little duo set of their amazing Hair Sweet Hair vitamins which contain ingredients like biotin and zinc for healthy, shiny hair that grows long more quickly.
Drunk Elephant Hair and Body Trunk
This set from Drunk Elephant comes with a ton of their new body wash and hair care products! You also get a hair comb, hair ties, a body brush and everything comes in the cutest little caddy, so it’s also a really great gift for college students living in dorms.
Summer Fridays The Hydration Set
This set comes with a vitamin C serum, a moisturizing lip butter and their super popular Jet Lag mask! Summer Fridays is big on Instagram and aesthetic, minimalistic packaging, so this one would be for the girls who are into that style! Their products are also great quality and very highly rated on Sephora’s site.
Tatcha Ritual For Radiance
A cute new holiday gift set from Tatcha that includes six different mini products from the brand! The set features their cleansing oil, a moisturizer, and a serum among other things. This is a really good value and a chance to try SIX of their best products all at once!
Olaplex Holiday Hair Fix Kit
Olaplex is one of the best hair care brands out there right now, and this kit lets you try their shampoo, conditioner, and a couple of other products too! This brand is recommended by so many hairstylists because of its quality, and their products have amazing ratings on Sephora’s website!
Ouai Melrose Place Eau de Parfum
This gorgeous cruelty free fragrance from Ouai is a newer product from this brand, and it’s gorgeous! Any girl would be excited about receiving this as a gift – it comes in minimalistic white packaging and smells amazing. The fragrance has floral notes of rose, peony, freesia, and jasmine, and light notes of sandalwood and cedar wood.
Bite Beauty Mini Starlit Succulents Lip Care Set
This is a great lip care set that comes with a scrub, a lip mask and a hydrating lip therapy for a really reasonable price! This would be a really cute stocking stuffer type of gift.
Pixi Beauty To Glow: Let’s Glow Set
This cute set from Pixi Beauty comes with three of their most popular products in mini versions that are perfect for traveling! It includes three of their bestsellers: Glow Mud Cleanser, Glow Mud Mask, and Glow Tonic for radiant and beautiful skin. This would make such a cute vegan Christmas gift or stocking stuffer.
Biossance Illuminate Overnight
This is a skincare brand with amazing, high quality vegan friendly products, and the set comes with a serum, a moisturizer and an eye cream! It’s a perfect vegan Christmas gift idea that works well for all skin types.
Finding fashion related vegan Christmas gifts is a little more straightforward, since so many people know to avoid leather, fur, and any other type of animal skin. However, a few other animal based materials in fashion that would not be considered vegan are silk (sourced from worms), cashmere, and wool. Check out these trendy fashion pieces that would make amazing vegan Christmas gifts!
Alo Yoga Effortless Hoodie
Alo is a sweatshop free and eco conscious brand that a lot of vegans would love. Their designs are simple but super cute and great for everyday wear, even if you’re just running errands or staying at home. The Effortless hoodie is so comfy and the perfect thing to wear around the house during the cold winter months!
Stella McCartney Falabella Crochet Tote
This bag from Stella McCartney is so gorgeous and it’s the perfect size as well. The crochet is such a beautiful neutral color and it has gold hardware and detailing. Stella McCartney is such a great brand for girls who are vegan since she uses beautiful high quality fabrics and materials that don’t harm animals!
Net-A-Porter Vegan Faux Leather Trimmed Cosmetics Case
This cute makeup bag from the luxury shopping site Net-A-Porter is super affordable and perfect to use as an everyday makeup bag. It’s a great vegan Christmas gift idea for a makeup lover or traveler!

Harbor Cozy Knit PJ Set
No vegan Christmas gift ideas list would be complete without a cozy pajama set! These pjs from Revolve are super cute, cozy, and come in the prettiest sky blue color. They’re perfect for lounging around the house and watching Christmas movies all day during your time off work.
Paige Kianna Vegan Leather Legging
These vegan leather leggings from Paige denim would make the cutest vegan Christmas gift for any girl you’re shopping for that loves the look of leather but doesn’t wear the real thing! They look so realistic and they’re super flattering.
Alo Yoga High Rise Moto Leggings
I’m a huge fan of Alo leggings, and Alo Yoga in general. Their stuff is so high quality and super flattering, and definitely worth it. Their leggings are obviously great for yoga or any type of workout, but they’re also really good for running errands or just having a day at home to get things done and clean up your space.
This pair is a really pretty beige color and will go with so many things!
Dr. Martens Black Vegan Jadon Boot
Dr. Martens would make an amazing vegan Christmas gift for that super stylish girl you have in your life! These shoes are so cute and make any outfit instantly edgier and more stylish.
The quality is also amazing and these should last years!
These fitness related vegan Christmas gift ideas are super sleek and high quality items that anyone would be stoked to receive. This fitness gift guide is free from leather and all other typical animal derived materials that are commonly found in fitness and workout products!
These are everywhere right now, and if you’re familiar with the “that” girl trend on TikTok and Youtube, I’m sure you’ve seen them at least once! They’re the most aesthetic weights to use on your wrists or ankles while working out to really elevate your entire workout and make your muscles burn.
Alo Yoga Mat
This could easily be the best quality and most gorgeous yoga mat ever! It’s all black and super cute; made from non toxic rubber and has an antimicrobial surface which comes in really clutch for hot yoga especially. It’s also non-slip and rolls up really thinly, so it’s lightweight and perfect for any yoga enthusiast you might be shopping for. I had to add this mat to my vegan Christmas gift idea guide, since yoga mats or the mat straps can sometimes contain leather and this one is completely vegan friendly!
Echelon Reflect Smart Fitness Mirror
So this is definitely an investment, but if you’re shopping for someone who’s super into health and fitness then I would say it’s well worth it. This is an amazing workout mirror that allows you to work out from the comfort of your own home, and it also has tech features like Bluetooth connectivity so you’re able to monitor your heart rate and other vital health stats.
This vegan Christmas gift guide would NOT be complete without a book section! Here is a list of amazing vegan cookbooks, vegan and cruelty free beauty and style books, and other aspirational books about living a plant based lifestyle that any vegan would love to read and use as beautiful coffee table decor.

This is a gorgeous cookbook that would make an amazing coffee table book because it’s so aesthetically pleasing! The recipes are super healthy and use five ingredients or less.
