The holidays are one of my favourite times of the year. Spending quality time with family and friends, gathering around a table to enjoy delicious meals together, and relaxing by the fireplace with a good book are things that make me truly happy. Although these precious moments are more valuable than any physical gift, taking the time to give thoughtful little presents to my loved ones is also such a sweet feeling. That’s why it was my pleasure to come up with this holiday gift guide that includes my top 10 gift ideas for 2019. And – what’s even better – is that they’re all vegan AND Canadian companies! 🎁 It’s important to me to support local entrepreneurs, so I truly hope these cruelty-free gift ideas will inspire you. ❤️

1. WOODLOT Rose & Palo Santo Everyday Mist, $22

This mist is so calming. And if you have some extra bucks to spend, you can purchase it in the beautiful Palo Santo gift set.

2. MATT & NAT FARRE Wallet, $60

I love that this tri-fold wallet has a separate compartment for your change! Super practical – and the colour red is seen as being lucky in many cultures.

3. LOVEFRESH Rosemary Spearmint Organic Shampoo, $32

An organic and biodegradable shampoo that smells amazing and perfect for all hair types – what more can you ask for?

4. BKIND Fire Nail Polish, $16

This new, non-toxic nail polish shade from BKIND is a rich orange with an underlying red hue. The perfect little punch to your holiday party dress, especially if you dislike wearing red lipstick.

5. BUCK NAKED Holiday Bombs Set, $11

This moisturizing bomb set is ideal for prepping before a Mani/Pedi. The scents and ingredient combinations are unreal and 100% natural!

6. LAMBERT ELIE Bag, $130

This vegan leather bag was designed to be both chic and practical. Our Marketing Director has this bag in black and uses it all the time. I love how there are so many different ways you can wear it – use the handle, shoulder strap, or even as a backpack!

7. ATTITUDE Living Hand Soap and Body Lotion Bundle, $20

This “Super leaves” aroma is so lovely, made with orange leaf extract and moringa seeds which has antipollution properties. Snag it while it’s still on sale!

8. JUSTEA Gift Box, $50

It’s really hard to find good tea that’s Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance Certified. The folks at JusTea are doing it right. Go check out their incredible story on their website.

9. EVIVE Gift Subscription Box, $90

I created this option so that you can offer a loved one the fun experience of unboxing an Evive Smoothie delivery without having to subscribe. Share your love for our healthy and delicious smoothies over the holidays.

10. BITE Beauty Lipstick Set, $14

Leave it up to this cool beauty company from Toronto to come up with an ultimate mini, four-piece set of gorgeous lipstick shades inspired by our favourite holiday treats. Fun fact: there are 9 superfood oils in these lipsticks! You’ll be prepped for your kiss under the mistletoe.
