Wondering what vegan Father’s Day gifts are out there?
Is your dad vegan, or are you vegan and want to make sure the gifts you give are also cruelty-free? Don’t stress because you aren’t certain what is and isn’t vegan. Here are some items you shouldn’t gift a vegan.
If you’re behind on getting that perfect gift, cool it – I’ve GOT YOU. Here’s a little gift guide I whipped up with some fun, animal-friendly, stylish gifts that any dad would like. The man you’re celebrating doesn’t even have to be vegan. In fact, he doesn’t even have to be a traditional father (dog dads count, especially shelter dog dads). Use this gift guide as an excuse to treat the good men in your life, even if it’s just with some sweet smellin’ (cruelty-free) cologne. Here is our list of vegan father’s day gifts:
Here’s what you should never buy a vegan as a gift:
- Non-vegan food ( that is, food that contains any animal products like meat, fish, eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, whey or other animal-derived ingredients)
- Skincare, shaving cream or products or other toiletries that have been tested on animals or which contain non-vegan derivatives
- Clothing that contains fur, leather, wool or silk
- Down or feathers (in coats or bedding)
- Non-vegan beer, wine or bubbly – that’s right, some alcohols aren’t vegan because some alcohol is filtered through egg whites or fish bladder.

Conventional colognes are brewed in laboratories and laced with chemicals, creating an essential is more art than science. Because Tsi-La is all-natural, essential oils break down faster than colognes do and need to be reapplied throughout the day. But because they’re super concentrated, you need only a drop on pulse points. The oils then mix with your skin’s natural oils, so no two dads will smell alike. And since Tsi-La Organics are hand-made, no two batches are exactly the same; this makes an oil seem more personalized.
