This year has definitely seen a huge rise in people becoming more caring for our environment and precious animals. Don’t get me started on people who have just been horrible lately because I am so done with poop heads.
My guide is for anyone buying for a vegan (me), someone trying to shop a little savvier (also me), or people who just like really lovely things (again, also me). I love to shop, what can I say?
Throughout this post there’ll be a fair few links, some of them might be affiliate (I generate a commission) I’ll mark them *, others won’t be. I’m just here to share things I love and think your animal loving friends and family members might too!
Food and Drink.
TREAT YO’SELF or a fellow gin lover. A fair few gins are vegan, but I’d say go for Brockmans as a treat.
I think hampers make a lovely gift, especially home made ones. Here’s some things you can include!
If you’re really spoiling someone, Moet & Chandon champagne is vegan!
£40 a bottle in Tesco.
A more budget friendly booze is this 5 star rated white wine.
This vegan cranberry cheese alternative would go great in a hamper basket, alongside some crackers!
This beautiful basket from The Works (£4!) would look so good stuffed with these treats and some other vegan (& easily found goodies!). Jacobs Cream crackers would fit in well, with some sweet and salty Propercorn for good measure. Don’t forget the super sweet treats such as Rowntrees Jelly Tots, Oreos, Starburst, Skittles, and some luxury Green & Blacks Mint chocolate.
Moo Free chocolate is DELICIOUS, you can find stockists here, or I’ve seen some products available in Lidl. I love the look of this traditional style selection box, how cute!
Everything in The Body Shop is now officially cruelty free, so shopping there is really easy. The majority of items are vegan except a select few that contain ethically sourced animal by products (e.g honey and milk).
This fruity fresh fragrance is AMAZING! I’m nearly all out of mine! (£13+)
This Kistna fragrance is perfect for the man in your life, I HIGHLY recommend it. (£16)
For more of what I recommend from The Body Shop, I’ll leave a link to my favourites at the end! Includes this essential ❤
I swear by the Vitamin E range from Superdrug*. They’ve added to the range this “Dual Phase Cleansing Oil’ and it’s on my letter to Santa this year. Because of the great offers on this range, you could create a huge gift basket of all the items on a budget (spoiler they’re fabulous and you’ll want them to yourself!)
I’ve got major heart eyes for this Nanshy brush set (£34.95)! I haven’t tried the brushes yet myself but I’ve heard tonnes of good things!
Another one for the men! The entire Bull Dog range is vegan and cruelty free. Always in the Christmas offers in Boots*. I love this cracker* (£6).Other options for the men in your life, include the B. range in Superdrug*. I use their makeup products and they’re really good so I’d imagine these will be the same! For fresh out of the spa luxury Elemis do their own vegan range!
This Makeup Revolution* box has got my name all over it. It’s cruelty free (not sure if it’s vegan), and it’s on offer right now (£60).
Everything on Tam Beauty* is cruelty free so you can shop with confidence. The affordability of EVERYTHING is a huge bonus (& the fab offers that often pop up are always nice).
Any vegan friendly beauty lover will adore everything from Spectrum. I know I would! Some other beauty brands you can shop with include Technic, ELF, Bloomtown and Tarte!
Clothes shoes and accessories are my favourite thing (after pizza!), if you’ve got a fashion lover to buy for heres a few ideas!.
I want this Cambridge Satchel X Melissa bag, and I have done forever. I bet you know someone else who’d love it!
Ultimate vegan Disney Christmas gift! Also from Melissa.
Why these don’t go up to adult sizes I don’t know! As above, from Melissa.
Theres a whole range of vegan shoes and boots on Dr Martens too.
If you want to pay them off over time (yes they’ve got a hefty price tag!), these are available on Very*
You can search on Topshop for vegan items! This watch is gorgeous!
Nasty Gal* specify which items are vegan on their site, how good is that! Imagine these* bad boys wrapped up under the tree ❤
