9 Gift Ideas for the Vegan in your Life

Are you gift shopping for a vegan friend or relative this year, and have no idea what to get them? Do you want to support small, vegan businesses no matter who you’re shopping for this holiday season? Check out these ideas for gifts that won’t get returned because you forgot to check if it had wool in it. Oh, and they’re all under $30, so you don’t have to break the bank.

In the next few days, I’ll be opening an Etsy shop where I’m selling hand-crocheted scarves to raise money for organizations that are fighting to protect civil liberties. 100% of the proceeds from every scarf I sell will go to an organization of your choice (based off a list I’m compiling). I’m still waiting on a few things before I can start selling, but expect to hear more soon!
