Searching for a health-conscious, cruelty-free Christmas present for your friend or family member? Chances are you have a vegan or vegetarian in your life and knowing what to get them can be a challenge. Our next holiday guide is specifically geared towards your eco-friendly pal. Keep on scrolling to simplify your shopping list.
1.) What could be better than gifting your plant-based friend a little plant of their own? Not only will they appreciate adding a splash of green into their home, house plants are a gift that keeps on giving. Unlike flowers, plants such as succulents are known for their sustainability and can continue to grow and thrive over the years. Every time they see that beautiful succulent on their shelf, they’ll think of you!
2.) Did you know Country Archer offers a Plant-Based Jerky line crafted with delicious slices of King Oyster mushrooms? With 3g of dietary fiber per serving and free of soy, gluten, artificial preservatives, and MSG, this is a perfect, vegetarian/vegan-approved snack that anyone would be thrilled to receive in their stocking.
- Spiced Bacon Mushroom Jerky - This flavor is made with tender slices of King Oyster mushrooms and a blend of spices, natural hickory smoke, and black pepper. Commence umami party in your mouth!
- Teriyaki Mushroom Jerky - Made with real ingredients such as garlic, pineapple, and ginger, our Teriyaki plant-based mushroom jerky packs a punch of flavor that is the perfect balance of sweet and savory.
3.) For the vegan friend who wants to elevate their winter wardrobe, a faux fur scarf is a perfect choice. It’s fashionable, practical (hello cold weather), and still aligns with their beliefs. There are plenty of vegan fur wraps and scarfs available online; with just a few clicks your shopping experience will feel like a piece of cake (vegan cake, that is).
4.) Even your most health-conscious, waste-reducing friend isn’t going to eat certain things; banana peels, egg shells, coffee grounds… an easy solution for food waste is composting, but most people don’t know where to begin. Gifting your friend with a compost starter kit is the best way to take the stress out and get them started. There are a plethora of options available, from large outdoor set-ups to small contraptions that can fit on your apartment’s kitchen counter. While you understand your friend’s home set-up best, all they really need is an odor-free compost bin along with a compost-starter fertilizer. For the folks who care about the environment, this is a thoughtful gift that not only benefits them – but also benefits our planet.All of these vegetarian and vegan-approved presents are sure to be a hit. Now that your shopping is almost complete, pour yourself a mug of hot chocolate with vegan marshmallows, and go enjoy this festive season!
