So I haven’t exactly been preparing to make a huge Christmas gift guide like everyone else! Instead, I wanted to share some (mainly small business) items I’ve purchased myself this month which would make an amazing gift for vegans- tried and tested by yours truly!
You might be wondering why I’ve used the word ‘realistic’- well, I basically mean these are items which aren’t super expensive, and some of these start at just a few quid.
So Eco Complexion Sponge – £6, Tesco (or online via other stores)
I picked up this complexion sponge the other week from Tesco, after spotting it whilst doing a food shop. Not only did I need a new ‘beauty blender’ type sponge, but I was also drawn in by the fact this one is eco-friendly! The sponge is made from recycled and sustainable materials, and it’s also biodegradable. A great little stocking filler for anyone who’s into makeup and trying to be more conscious about the environment!
Bright Zine – Ethical Lifestyle Tool Kit (Available here) – £10
Not only does this lil set of cutlery look absolutely cute, but it’s also a great gift for those who are being more conscious of plastic waste. Heading to your fave food festival? Take one of these with you and ditch those plastic forks!
This little kit includes everything you need – a stainless steel straw, spoon, fork and a pair of chopsticks. Plus on top of all of that, the box is BPA free! Also available in different colours.
Earth Conscious Natural Deodorant – £7 – Available here
Who says giving someone a stick of deodorant isn’t a great stocking filler? I disagree! If someone you love is trying to live more ethically, help them out by purchasing them this cute little deodorant stick (I say little, but this product lasts ages!). Not only does it smell so fresh and gorgeous, but the packaging also contains zero plastic and all the ingredients are organic! PLUS 10p from each sale goes to the Marine Conservation Society.
Candy Kittens Sour Watermelon Gourmet Sweets – Around £3 – Available here
Most of us dive into a box of chocolates at Christmas, so why not treat someone to a bag of these yummy sweets instead! A great stocking filler or small gift if you’re on a budget but still want to impress. The packaging and quality of these sweets will make for a great treat- I for one wouldn’t be disappointed if someone bought me a bag of these for Christmas!
MuriHome Homemade Soy Wax Candle – Available Here
Candles are a great Christmas present! Why not treat someone to one of these handmade candles? They contain 100% natural soy wax, high-quality fragrance oils and soy treated soft cotton wicks. Trust me, they smell amazing and the packaging makes them look so special and high-end!
Friction Free Shaving Razor Set – Available here
I know what you’re thinking- seriously Emma? A Razor set? Well, this isn’t just any razor- it’s vegan, cruelty-free and is absolutely brilliant! I bought myself the starter kit and have joined the subscription service – I love the thought of ditching plastic razors and having my very own high-quality personalised razor. The razor is definitely the best I’ve ever used, and I love how much thought has gone into the product.
Why not purchase their starter kit for someone? Or they also sell a Christmas gift set! Perfect for treating someone you love.
Vego Spread – £2.98 – Available here
Give someone the ultimate vegan indulgent gift in the form of this chocolate spread! I’m sure if any of us vegans received this for Christmas we’d be over the moon- I mean, come on, isn’t it just the best thing ever?!
When shopping for food items, not everyone can afford to splash out or treat themselves to goodies like this. So why not give the gift of chocolate to your vegan bestie?!
Myroo Skincare – Face Oil Cleansers, around £27 – Available here
If you’re looking for a more luxurious gift without totally breaking the bank, head to Myroo skincare and treat someone to a lovely cleanser or skincare product.
Everyone loves a pamper, and again not everyone can afford to spend this much money on themselves in terms of skincare- so why not treat someone to a lovely skincare item? I absolutely love Myroo skincare’s products, and they have totally transformed my skin! Plus, how classy do their glass bottle look?
I hope my gift guide helped some of you out and gave you ideas for any last minute vegan Christmas gifts!
