You Can’t Go Wrong With a Gift Card

If the coffee lover in your life prefers to get java from a shop, give them a gift card to their favorite local spot. Blue Bottle Coffee and Stumptown Coffee Roasters are two chains that don’t charge extra for vegan milks, so we suggest you start there. Skip Starbucks until it stops charging extra for vegan milks.


Thankfully, most coffee-related gift ideas are vegan-friendly by default, but there are a few items to avoid. Kopi luwak, also known as “civet coffee,” is cruelly cultivated by exploiting civet cats. Dairy creamers are made of milk stolen from sensitive mother cows and their babies. Be sure to give the gift of cruelty-free caffeine to all your coffee-loving cohorts.
