The Vegan Gift Guide
We've found the perfect gifts for the awesome plant-based men and women in your life!
A special guest post from Emily Wood of Vegan Pregnancy & Parenting

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. Especially for your vegan friends.


What makes holiday shopping so difficult? The biggest struggle is that mainstream companies don’t necessarily cater to a vegan diet and lifestyle. Although there has been unprecedented amount of growth in the vegan and ethical industries in the past year, finding gifts that everyone will love (including your non-vegan family and friends) can still be a tricky process. Ideally 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 she is.
