Each year as the
holidays roll around, vegans are faced with a set of challenges of
navigating how to get through the family events without someone asking
about your protein intake, and how to avoid the Christmas ham without
offending Aunt Jane. While grandma is telling you that you need dairy
for your bones and your cousin Joseph has been rambling about being
paleo, the clear winner for sheer difficulty during the holidays always
seems to be finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

you want to reflect the person personality with the gift you give them,
and with our carefully selected gifts in this guide you will be able to
find that something special for everyone on your list, no animal
products involved! Read on to find the best suggestions that range from
amazing cruelty beauty products to ethical clothing to stunning
accessories. There’s a selection here that will blow her away, whoever
