2014 FV Holiday Gift Guide!
Here it is, my ultimate vegan Holiday Gift Guide for 2014! Everything on the list is vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and would be a welcome gift under my tree this year. From accessories to wall art, we've got you covered. And while most of the list is directed at the ladies, we do have a couple of guy-friendly items on the list as well. Check 'em out!
1: Porcelain Cake Stand, Herriot Grace- Classic, beautiful, perfect for food photography. Do I really need more reasons?
2: Sea Urchin Air Plant, Oh Hello Friend- To add to my air plant collection, but in a fresh new planter. Such a clever way to reuse and add a bit of style!
3: The City Backpack (black), Herschel Supply Co- I'm not a purse girl, but I still have stuff to carry around. The solution? A classic, always-in-style black shoulder bag with faux leather straps.
4: More Please/ Help Yourself Serving Set, ShopBop- These are just the cutest. For salads, casseroles, or anything you need more than one utensil for serving.
5: The Ramos Cerulean Twill Lowtops, KEEP Vegan Shoes- I LOVE sneakers. I LIVE in sneakers. I love the ocean-y color & the funky laces on these and can't wait to add 'em to my collection.
6: Ombre Wooden Spoons in Pinky Purple, Etsy- These are great. Another tool perfect for serving food, but you'll definitely be the hit of the party with these hand-painted, ombré kitchen accessories.
7: Citrus Floral Recipe Box, Rifle Paper Company- I have slowly been writing my recipes down to pass on, or give to friends. This box is far better looking then wrapping the cards in a rubber band and is a keepsake you can pass down with the recipes inside. Plus, its GORGEOUS!
8: Falcon Enamelware Mug, Madewell- Simple, effective, and durable: must-haves in my coffee mug. Plus, judge me if you will, but how great would this look in a recipe photo?! I'll take a set, please.
9: Bright Knit Loop Scarf, American Eagle- I wear a lot of grays, blacks, and whites, but love to accessorize with fun splashes of color. This scarf would look great with a tee and jeans, and could be worn with sneakers or flats. And I am all about those geometric patterns, yo.
10: Amberwood Faceted Glass Jar Candle, Anthology-We bought an amberwood candle a few months ago and I fell in love with the cedar wood, honey, & tobacco scent and can't get enough of it. Its perfectly rich and smells great next to our conifer. This one has a lovely jar, too!
11: Yeti Yoga Custom Mats, Etsy-Yoga mats are BORING. Well, usually. I've never had anything other than a single-colored mat, but these mats make me want to order one of each. They're thoughtfully designed and look great! Plus, no one at yoga will ever accidentally walk away with your beautifully designed mat...unless they'e jealous of how awesome it is.
12: Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream with Grapefruit, Meow Meow Tweet- I try a new deodorant at least bi-monthly, and love having different types for different days. Some are more like paste, some are more like powder, and some still come in good ol' bar form. I'm totally intrigued by this baking soda FREE version from Meow Meow Tweet...and the grapefruit scent sounds fresh & sweet!
13: Faceted Terrariums, West Elm- These are lovely, and I am a little obsessed with succulents & air plants. They take little water, little care, and require mostly positive energy...right? I think so. I keep them hanging in my kitchen and bathroom, but would love a desk-friendly version, too!
14: 2015 Les Fleurs Calender, Rifle Paper Company- Gotta get through the year somehow, right? I'm forgetful and also bad at remembering to put dates into the calendar on my iPhone. Having a beautiful, art-filled version by my desk seems far nicer and far easier to write on with a pen. And again, SO PRETTY!
I'm hoping for it all on Christmas morning, but I'd be happy with a stack of vegan flapjacks and viewing of 'Its a Wonderful Life'. What items are on your wish list this year? We'd love to know! And we hope you enjoyed ours. Now excuse me while I go order the Yeti yoga mats in every single design, please. Happy Holidays!
