VegOut’s Los Angeles Vegan Gift Guide
Gift giving is a tradition as old as time, but not too long ago collective sighs could be heard across the world when it came time to buy thoughtful presents for vegans. Now, plant-based gift shopping is anything but boring and the furthest thing from difficult! Our Los Angeles vegan gift guide has you covered with everything from hand-poured candles and toxin-free spas to French-style pastries and some of the best chocolate you’ve ever had!
Beverly Grove, Koreatown, Echo Park, & Riverside
Monty’s delivers far more than craveable burgers and decadent shakes! Their burger joints have become the perfect place to buy your loved one t-shirts and hoodies, or even a pair of joggers and a beanie. Shop the misfit collection for edgier options, while making sure to keep an eye out for Monty’s collaborations with other designers for a chance to snag limited edition designs.
Starting at just $10 a month, you can give the gift of health with a VIP membership to Pressed! Membership perks include discounts on wellness shots, smoothie bowls, and 15oz beverages in addition to exclusive members-only promotions. The $10 (or chosen amount) is loaded onto your account to be used as store credit.
At Can Can Parleur, harmful polishes, gels, and skin aging UV lights are replaced with medical-grade gels and essential oils. Not only does this create a non-toxic environment safe for expecting mothers and those sensitive to chemical odors, but it means these same harmful toxins will not come into contact with the skin of those dear to you. Visit Can Can’s Hollywood storefront to grab a gift card and allow your loved one to return for a well-deserved spa day.
NoHo Candle Co. proudly curates handmade, small-batch vegan and cruelty-free artisan candles. Each candle is poured with 100% pure coconut soy wax which is free from paraffin or other harmful chemicals, meaning they emit a lovely aroma without polluting the air. NoHo ships internationally, allowing you to send the gift of light to your friends and family no matter where they are on the globe.
Angeleno Wine Co. partners with family-owned LA vineyards, where organic and sustainable practices are at the forefront of operations. Unlike most wineries, Angeleno Wine omits the usage of gelatin, casein (milk protein), and albumin (egg whites), making them ideal for any wine connoisseur on your list! Note: Angeleno Wine Co. is only open Saturday and Sunday.
Since opening in 1950, Compartes has become an institution among celebrities and sweet tooths alike, and just when it seemed as though things couldn’t get any better, they released a line of vegan chocolate bars and assorted gift boxes featuring over 24 flavors! Can’t decide? Sign up for the Gourmet Chocolate of the Month Club where your special someone will be among the first to try the newest and greatest flavors that are hand-selected by Compartes’s chocolatiers.
Stop into Chaumont’s Beverly Drive storefront where the inescapable aroma of cinnamon rolls, chocolate almond croissants, and other sweet treats will greet you at the door.

Nothing breathes life into a home quite like a vibrant bouquet of fresh flowers! Head over to The Original Los Angeles Flower Market where roughly 30 vendors across 55,000 square feet await you with an international selection of flowers and the perfect vases to match.
