As promised here is our Healthy Vegan Holiday Gift Guide

These are all gifts that we love, some of which if given to the right recipient may help encourage them to view things in a new way. They have been helpful to us in motivating others to choose veganism and since many of these recommendations potentially lead to better health for the recipients they also give back to the giver. Who doesn’t want their friends and family to be as happy and healthy as possible!
