If you have a friend or family member that is vegetarian or vegan, you probably know how hard it is for them to go to a restaurant or just purchase something up without asking 10 questions. When it comes to Christmas presents, the difficulty is transferred to the gift givers. What on earth can you buy them?
Today’s holiday gift guide is just for those who are not sure what to get for a vegetarian or vegan. The brands included in this post all strive for an animal cruelty free world and they all have a very dear place in my heart because of it. Even if you aren’t buying a gift for a vegetarian/vegan, do consider these fabulous options.
Urban Decay – Vegan Palette
Over half of Urban Decay’s cosmetic line is vegan but this palette is the first to bring some of their key products together. The artwork printed on the packaging is even done with soy based ink.
The palette contains 6 of their most-popluar eyeshadow shades Minx, Urb, Gunmetal, Twice Baked, Smog and Half Bakes (see swatches on Temptalia). You also get a 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero (black) and a travel size Primer Potion in Sin.
Alexami Cosmetics – Vegan Makeup Brush Set
The Australian owned beauty company based in Queensland offers safe cosmetics in the most natural way. Their vegan brush set includes three essential brushes made from high quality synthetic hair with bamboo handles, housed in an eco-friendly imitation leather white pouch. Included in the set are Blush/Powder, Shader and Angle brushes.

Priti NYC – Nail Polish Kits
The adorable nail polish kits include 4 lacquers and come in an array of on-trend or classic colours. Priti NYC lacquers are organic, 100% Vegan and and contain no Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) or Formaldehyde.

Inika Cosmetics – Face In A Box
Another Australian wonder is Inika Cosmetics, which you may remember from this delicious Eyeshadow Chocolate Box review. This limited edition box of goodies includes everything you need for a flawless face. Available in four shade combinations, you get 8 pieces of cosmetics and brushes.
SpaRitual – Holiday Twinkle 4 Piece Gift Set
This collection of nail lacquers from SpaRitual are so pretty I just couldn’t leave them out. I fell in love with the SpaRitual earlier this year with their In Pink collection and the Twinkle collection was released around the same time. This gift set contains four of the shades and they are just stunning.
