No matter how old your father or dad is, he’ll never outgrow that giddy feeling of unboxing a gift (or receiving an unexpected hug, if you’re so inclined). Whether it’s a gift card to his favorite vegan-friendly brewery or a kombucha brewing setup at home, here are 23 vegan gifts that will make your dad shine this Father’s Day.
The best vegan gift ideas for Father’s Day
1 Soma Brew Bottle
For the coffee snob on the go, this insulated brew bottle will let dad have a fresh cup of coffee on the go (with his preferred fair-trade grind, of course). The sleek design will keep his cuppa hot (or cold) for hours, meaning he’ll never have to sit down at a chain coffee shop when he’s got a fresh brew in hand.
2 Duraceramic air-fryer
Air fryers are worth the hype. This versatile appliance can quickly prepare a healthy plant-based meal in about 20 minutes. Consider pairing the gift with some printed air-fryer recipes to open your dad’s mind to the wonder and abundance of the air-frying world. This compact Oster model stands out for its five-star reviews and even a unique tilt motion for cooking.
3 Flexispot standing desk
Ideal for dads who work from home, this convertible desk can be lowered for sitting or raised to break up the workday. Need to spend a little more? Pair this gift with an adjustable ergonomic chair for the total package (you can always ask more loved ones to chip in for a great group gift!).
4 Really good coffee
As a follow-up to the brew bottle, dads who run on caffeine may appreciate a high-quality bag of coffee beans. If he’s a regular at the local coffee shop, stop by yourself and buy a bag or two. Don’t ask for it ground – freshly ground, well brewed.
Matt and Nat
5 Matt and Nat briefcase
Finding a great looking vegan leather briefcase is no small task. This model exudes a professional style that will impress any boss or client while taking a city beat.
6 VegNews meal planner
If your dad is interested in going plant-based but isn’t sure exactly where to start, our VegNews meal planner can help. The program includes personalized meal plans, easy-to-use recipes and optional grocery delivery.
Everyone needs a high-quality blender, and the Vitamix is the gold standard. Like an air-fryer, once you use it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. They’re not cheap—prices range from $260 to $599, depending on the model—but they’ll last a decade. If you need to save a few dollars, buying a certified refurbished model is the way to go.
8 Miomojo Woollys Backpack
If your dad isn’t a briefcase guy, this awesome vegan backpack will do more than the trick. Perfect for office casual or travel, this bag comes with plenty of pockets to carry all her essentials.
9 Bombas socks
It’s a bit of a joke gift, but there’s no denying that everyone gets a lot of use out of a pair of socks. Bombas makes vegan-friendly comfortable socks for any occasion—be it office wear or performance gear. Note: Not all socks are vegetarian; Some are made of wool. Fortunately, you can sort by ingredients and avoid any animal-based options.
10 LUSH Gift Set
LUSH products are gender-neutral, but the vegan-friendly brand offers a collection of dad-centric products around Father’s Day. Choose from products like herbal body sprays, cucumber shower gels and citrusy bath bombs.
11 Hydro flask
Make sure your dad is super-hydrated with this industrial-sized reusable water bottle; Some larger models can double as dumbbells! Save the planet from plastic water bottles and give your dad a makeshift kettlebell.
12 Daylight Hiker Boots
If your dad is a fan of Vibrams, he’ll love these minimal yet supportive vegan hiking boots. The sole allows the wearer to feel the ground, enhancing the experience in nature and ensuring no slips and slides from the hills. Scramble Trail, bring it on.
13 Ritual zero-proof spirits
The alcohol-free trend hasn’t left, but that doesn’t mean a good cocktail has lost its flavor. Ritual’s zero-proof whiskey, tequila and gin offer the same flavor profile without the alcohol. They are a great addition to any home bar cart.
14 WV Oakes Cross Running Coach
Fuel your dad’s running addiction with these running shoes. Created by three-time world record holder and ultramarathoner Fiona Oakes, these shoes will make her feet fly on the road or trail. Ten percent of all sales go towards Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary in Fiona Oaks.
15 VegNews Subscription
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention a subscription to our award-winning magazine. From vegan news to innovative recipes and more, our magazine can help your dad get a glimpse into the vegan world.
Karma is unemployed
16 somewhat sweet
Moms aren’t the only ones who appreciate celebratory baked good. If your dad has a sweet tooth, send him something to delight his taste buds. As a result of the pandemic, dozens of vegan bakeries shipped their products. From cookies to donuts to six-inch cakes, there are plenty of ways to treat your dad to something sweet.
17 Yeti Cooler
This is the brand that made insulation cool. From water bottles to coolers, Yeti’s brand. Whether your dad is camping, RVing, or relaxing at the beach, the YETI line of top-of-the-line hard and soft coolers is a must-have accessory.
18 Vegan food subscription
Several companies make heat-and-eat products while others encourage customers to get into the kitchen and cook for themselves using pre-measured ingredients. To find the perfect kit for your dad, check out our comprehensive guide to vegan meal kits (we’ve literally tried them all).
19 Lettuce Grow Urban Farmstand
For dads who fantasize about building their own hydroponic system, this compact farmstand makes that dream a reality. The aesthetically pleasing structure works both indoors and outdoors, and stands can grow between 12 and 36 individual edible plants, depending on the model. It’s ideal for dads looking for a small, rewarding hobby that doesn’t take up too much time.
20 Wine Club Membership
Did your father know that not all wines are vegetarian? Keep her guessing and gift her a wine club membership to Vegan Wine. He’ll receive a box of six hand-picked wines four times a year, and there’s an option to add gourmet vegan cheese to the delivery. Maybe he will share!
The Pizza Plant
21 Vegan pizza and beer
There is no 100 percent chance of winning the day with this giveaway, straight up, and 100 percent probability. Send your dad a box of meaty, vegan The Pizza Plant pizzas and drop off a six-pack of his favorite vegan beer (you can’t go wrong with Golden Road or Modern Times). Although still an edible gift, it will last longer than treating her to a single dinner out
22 Vegan cooking course
In-person cooking classes—especially plant-based ones—aren’t always accessible, but Rouxbe offers an in-depth vegan online cooking course for those seriously interested in food. From an introductory module to Bread Baking 101, there’s something for every dad who loves to cook.
23 Cans of beer mustard (and other foods)
Fancy spices are fun to browse but a pain to buy. Most will pick up an intriguing jar of beer mustard but on second thought is it really worth $9? When it’s a gift, it definitely is. Make the ultimate dad snack bag with this delicious condiment and throw in hard pretzels, chips, and his favorite brand of hummus.
