Christmas Gift Guide – What To Buy For Vegans

If you’re a vegan, chances are you’re already very aware of the many ways we exploit animals in our society. However, family members of vegans may not be. If you’re looking to buy a Christmas present for your vegan loved one, you need to be careful about the items you choose.

A well meaning family member could get you some skincare products, a purse, a scarf, or sweets for Christmas without thinking about whether or not there’s honey or beeswax in the skincare products, leather (which is cow skin) on the purse, wool in the scarf or sweets containing animal products like dairy and eggs. You have to be careful with many things you may not think about, like alcohol.

It’s important to remember this because if you take the time to get a vegan an ethical gift, believe me they will seriously appreciate it. If you do happen to get something that isn’t vegan, the person you bought it for may not even use it. They might give it to charity or to someone else, and that isn’t what you want, so take some time to Google what’s appropriate for vegans before you buy.

Beard oil 

Long beards seem to be all the rage the past few years, and although we’re about to leave November, many a man in your life may still have bushy facial hair. As many of you know, this month is Movember – where men grow out their facial hair to raise awareness of illnesses that affect men, like prostate and testicular cancer.

This great gift clocks in at €12.11.

Our Detox Soap is ideal for those who struggle with face or body acne and those who need a good skin detoxification. It is made from moisturizing oils + butters blended with activated charcoal and tea tree essential oil. If your skin needs a refresher, this is the most holistic choice for you.

Wallet 

This unique wallet is made out of leaves, believe it or not! Sustainably sourced leaves of the sal tree growing in India, to be exact. There will be no end of compliments for whoever you buy this for!

It’s only €26.61 and ships from the UK!

Alternatively, if the vegan in your life isn’t that materialistic, you can give a donation in their name to an animal sanctuary, like Eden Farm in Co. Meath.
