A Christmas Gift Guide For Vegan And Cruelty-Free Babes



Although, technically, all my blog posts are vegan blog posts, I wanted to bring you a special gift guide with a cruelty-free and ethical focus. Whether you're buying for someone who's been making changes to their lifestyle, or you want to make an effort to support more animal-friendly companies in your Christmas shopping (and perhaps inspire someone with a conscious gift!) there's something for you here, no matter what your budget. Vegan/organic products get a bad rap for being expensive or inaccessible, but that's just not the case if you do a little research. There are eight vegans in my family (including a vegan doggo) and we all have vastly different interests and tastes, but we never fail to find each other amazing presents. 

Let's start with beauty gift sets. Paul Mitchell do some of my favourite haircare products - I love their detangler spray and their colour-safe shampoos. The new Lavender and Mint set for dry/damaged hair is perfect for someone who has been a bit mean to their tresses this year. My ends have been processed wayyy too many times and are in need of some intense repair, so I will be keeping this one for myself. Next up we have Sukin, a vegan, carbon-neutral, cruelty-free, and organic company from Australia who make ethical and affordable skincare. If you're new to the brand, as I was, one of their three-step gift sets with a cleanser, toner, and moisturiser is a great place to start or initiate a loved one. If you're in London, lots of places stock Sukin, but if you're in Wales you're best off ordering online.

If you want to get a bunny-loving make-up enthusiast something luxurious, how about some high-quality synthetic brushes? I love Spectrum for making totally vegan, colourful, long-lasting brushes that both perform really well and look good on display. The ones you can see here are these ones, but if you know your giftee's zodiac sign, these are stunning and unique. 

If you have a veggie or vegan friend who's missing a certain type of food or doesn't know how to make a herbivore version, a thoughtful cook book with exactly what they need might be just the thing. If cake is their obsession, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World is one that I use often and would recommend for anyone with a sweet tooth. Obviously don't get them a cook book unless cooking is something they really enjoy, but go for it if they are the kind of person who likes to experiment in the kitchen or is struggling for plant-based recipes since making a change,  

If you're really stuck, LUSH is always there to lend a helping hand. If you don't know what someone wants or needs specifically, a face mask is always a fail-safe option. Rosy Cheeks is 100% vegan and suits almost every skin type. It's a simple and fresh blend of rose oil, calamine, and kaolin to balance, cleanse, and nourish your skin. Perfect for someone who's always complaining about that's freaking what all the extreme weather and indoor heating does to their complexion (i.e, me)!
