Below is a short list of suggestions for locally purchased vegan holiday gifts. If you know of someone who should be included on next year’s list, please email me.
*Give a gift certificate from your favorite vegan-friendly restaurant.
*A vegan cookbook, purchased from a local bookstore, is an excellent and encouraging gift to give a vegan or vegan-in-process. Here’s a good list of recommended titles.
*Our fine local health food stores, including Natural Health Center, People’s Food Co-op, and Sawall, all offer lots of vegan food, beauty, health, and household items that would make good gifts. Also, Pacific Rim Foods offers lots of interesting foods and cooking gadgets.
*We’re big fans of Opulent Blends‘ body care and home care products.
*Kalamazoo Candle Company has a lovely store on the downtown Kalamazoo Mall. Nearly all of the candles are vegan!
* Earthfare‘s wellness department has these ultra-comfy vegan slippers.
* Island City Crafts‘s vegan owner makes lovely vegan soaps. Only farmed, sustainable palm oil used.
