Note to my Mom & Dad: Stop reading now! This list contains surprises!
If you’re still shopping for Christmas gifts, you’re my people! I tend to start my shopping way too late every year, only to be disappointed by how few options there are. I’ve put this list together to help those of you struggling with the holiday crunch!
This list contains a mix of some fully vegan brands, some vegan-friendly retailers, and some individual products I love and recommend. Please note, due to extreme stress on shipping carriers in 2020, most retailers are not guaranteeing holiday delivery dates, but they’re doing their best!
As always, thank you for keeping animals in mind during this busy holiday season!

Pawj Shipping Recommendations: Standard Domestic Shipping (Dec 20) or Priority Shipping (Dec 22)
If you follow me on Instagram, you already know I’m obsessed with this brand. I wear their cozy boots pretty much every day in the fall and winter! If someone on your list likes the comfort, aesthetic, and ease of Uggs boots, but doesn’t like the animal cruelty involved in their products, they absolutely need a pair (or two!) of Pawj California’s vegan boots or slippers! Pawj doesn’t use animal skins in any of their products, so feel free to shop from their whole store!

Okay, this is why I told my parents not to read this post. My brother and I are gifting a subscription to each of them for Christmas! I’ve been wanting to try this service for a while now, and I’m so excited.
Here’s how it works: Each week, the gift recipient will be emailed a question to answer. Some of the sample questions I saw were, “What was your Dad like as a kid?,” “How did you get your first job?”, “Are you still friends with your friends from high school? If so, how have they changed?” You also have full control over the questions, so if you know something like, “What was your Dad like as a kid?” wouldn’t be right for you, you can skip it. You can also add your own questions!
At the end of the year, all of their stories are compiled into a bound book (included in the initial price)! You can add photos as well, which will either be black & white by default or printed in color for an extra charge. Personally, I can’t wait to read my parents’ stories and cherish these books forever!
Find at StoryWorth. Priced at $99 (but currently on sale for $89).
Let me do the shopping for you! I’ve curated my own shop full of vegan products on Amazon, which I hope helps simplify your animal-friendly life! You’ll find categories like Best Vegan Cookbooks, Vegan Snow & Rain Boots, Cruelty-Free Beauty Products, Essential Cooking Tools, and much more! If you have Amazon Prime, most of these items will arrive before Christmas.

TOMS Shipping Recommendations: Expedited (Dec 20) or Overnight (Dec 21)
Toms has always been a company dedicated to giving back, and they’re doing so even more during the time of COVID (learn about that here). They’ve also always been a great source for cozy cruelty-free slippers! Toms shoes and slippers are reliably high quality, so you can feel confident purchasing them online.
Shop vegan slippers at TOMS. Prices range from $49.95 – $69.95, but most of their store is currently 35% OFF!
Free People Shipping Recommendations: Expedited (Dec 20) or Overnight (Dec 21)
While Free People is not a fully vegan brand, they do carry a wide range of vegan apparel and accessories! You can search the word vegan to see all of their intentionally vegan items (ie: vegan leather jackets, boots, etc), but they also carry many sweaters, accessories, and other pieces that don’t contain animal products. Be sure to check materials listed before purchase!

Amazon’s delivery cutoffs vary, but should be available quite late.
For “research,” I ordered this Shiatsu Heated Back & Neck Massager a few weeks ago. It has thousands of rave reviews online, but as someone with chronic muscle pain, I wanted to check it out myself. Within ten seconds of using it, I told my husband it was the best money I’ve ever spent! It truly feels like an expert massage therapist is working on your muscles. It’s designed to wear over your shoulders, but you can easily use it on your lower back or legs. Everyone is carrying a bit of extra stress this year, so this gift is sure to be a hit with anyone who receives it!

Pottery Barn Shipping Recommendations: Standard (Dec 18) with Next Day Delivery available next week.
You can always count on Pottery Barn for some luxurious and affordable robes, vegan slippers, and faux fur blankets! Pottery Barn is not fully vegan, but they do carry a lot of cozy vegan-friendly products.

The Instant Pot is an indispensable kitchen appliance for many vegans! It conveniently offers seven appliances in one: pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute pan, food warmer, and yogurt maker (can’t confirm if it works for vegan yogurt). I recommend purchasing it with an accompanying plant-based cookbook so your gift recipient can get cooking right away! The Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook contains 90+ recipes including Mini Mushroom & Leek Quiches, Caramelized Onion Jam, Fluffy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Miso Mushroom Risotto, Pasta Primavera Alfredo, and Double Fudge Chocolate Cake!
I’ll keep working this list throughout tonight and tomorrow, so please check back!
