For the fashion conscious
This jumper has won. And it’s pretty cheap for a cozy Christmas knit (but let’s get real I’d wear this all year round).
2. Plants are friends
For when people tell vegans that they’re murdering plants. A gentle reminder that they’re not, because this tee says plants are friends. And friends don’t murder friends.
3. Foxy Shoes
If you’re being generous and feel like splashing out – these frickin’ adorable fox shoes are a must for a hunt-sab enthusiast. Beyond Skin is an entirely vegan shoe line with some awesome designs and varying prices.
Beyond Skin, £130
Vegans. Avocados. Enough said. Vegans are apparently all a bit weird for avocado.
5. Vegan AF
If your vegan sometimes forgets they’re vegan, don’t worry, people will remind them when they’re wearing this.
Kiss the Kale, £12.00
For the nesting homeowners
6. Soy candles
Not all candles are vegan-friendly! Something to watch out for when wanting to pamper your veggie present receiver – what better than these beautifully patterned soy candles from the ethical Natural Collection.
Natural Collection, £12.75
How cute would it be to cut veggies and tofu on a Studio Gibli-inspired Calcifer chopping board ^.^
Zenibas Attic, £15.00
Because herbivores like their tea loose, cute and infused with vegan-friendly style.
These are perfect for those with a soft spot for hens and cows, as some of the proceeds go to Hugletts Wood Animal Sanctuary in East Sussex.
Foxes again! Robert Farkas’ masterpiece would be appreciated within a vegan home
For the beauty –lovers
Sinking into this vivid blue and glittery bath is an ethical winter hug. The whole Christmas bath collection is Vegan this year! Hurrah!
For the veggie who love to express themselves as much as they love the earth, cruelty-free makeup is a must. Cruelty-free doesn’t always mean Vegan, so check out the 100% Vegan Makeup Without Malice site.
13. Mermaid Brushes
Whimsically cute and labelled ‘instagramable’, these vivid brush sets are a must have for a makeup keen and social media savvy veggie.
For the foodies
I once had the pina colada white chocolate flavour, they also have chai, strawberry, and this matcha green tea white chocolate. Hippy veggies will love that quirkiness.
The yummiest selection of random Vegan chocolate treats. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with dark chocolate. I’m just saying that some vegans have a sweet tooth that 90% can’t satisfy. No word of a lie- they do vegan crème eggs.
Donate to AnimalAid and get your vegan drunk as hell with some cruelty-free, Vegan* wine. Not all alcohol on the highstreet is vegan so be careful when you’re partying!
Animal Aid, £79.00
“Where do you get your pro-” “Shut up, I’ve got my PB Cups.” – what your vegan friend will be saying when they’re scoffing these after a workout.
A couple of other things that don’t really fit into a category
18. Vegan Sidekick
Vegan sidekick is both brutally honest and f-in hilarious. His comics, first appearing online, are now in print and veggies can’t get enough of the no-bullshit attitude that turns the phrase ‘vegans can’t take a joke’ on its head.
Vegan Sidekick, £9.50
Tea, sandwiches, scones, cakes aaaand cocktails for 2 at La Suite West in London. A gift for yourself, too!
Red Letter Days, £45.00
Inspiration for this post struck as a friend posted the CUTEST jumper (Soy to the World) on my facebook page and I thought back to that hated question “what do you want for Christmas” in which I keep answering “I don’t know” or “a job please” or “a sense of purpose”. In reality though. I do want stuff, I want cute vegan stuff and avocado fun, and LOTS OF CHOCOLATE THAT ISN’T JUST DARK CHOCOLATE.
I hope this helps with your shopping. Everything on this list is sourced from UK sellers, so should get to you in time for the festive period.
