We’ve all been there… Christmas has snuck up once again and Santa’s workshop has already closed for the year. Well, fret not! Here’s our pick of easy last-minute Christmas gifts.

Before you rush to the shop and buy whatever vegan chocolate is left in the free-from section, take inspiration from our sustainable and super-impressive last-minute vegan Christmas gift list!.

Vegan Chocolate Mug Cake Kit

There’s nothing more comforting than warm cake in a mug, and it makes a cute gift if you parcel it up together ready for someone to simply mix and microwave. We all know being vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out on delicious cake, and this Vegan Recipe Club mug cake proves it!

What you’ll need:

  • A Christmassy mug
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 3 squares of vegan chocolate

Mix the dry ingredients together and place them in a paper bag (to keep it eco friendly). Gift wrap the mug, ingredients and the printed recipe so they know how to turn your gift into an almost-instant delicious gooey cake!

Christmas Cocktail Kit

Putting together your own Christmas cocktail kit is the perfect present for those who enjoy a boozy Christmas day. It’s simple to put together but looks like you’ve gone to lots of effort for the special gift. 

With this kit, you’ll have everything you need to make Vegan Recipe Club’s Christmas Old Fashioned, and your own Vegan Baileys Liqueur.

Mulled Wine Tea Bags

Everyone loves a glass of mulled wine at Christmas, so these little gifts make perfect stocking fillers or Secret Santa presents. They look super adorable plus you can have a guilt-free Christmas knowing they’re eco-friendly!

What you’ll need:

Just fill each tea bag with a selection of warming spices and wrap nicely. The perfect little gift to make Christmas extra special.
