From Apple Leather Handbags to Organic Runway-Inspired Cosmetics

 - Nov 18, 2018
This list of vegan-friendly gifts contains products that are ideal as stocking stuffers and under-the-tree surprises. As consumers are moving into a more self-aware, ethics- and sustainability-forward mindset, brands are beginning to answer the rising concerns about animal welfare. As a result, there is an ample amount of products out there that use no animal by-products in their recipes — like Lenny & Larry's free-from crunchy protein cookies or Coco Chocolatier's spiced chocolate bars.

Other options for vegan-friendly gifts include cruelty-free cosmetics, skincare, and alternative leather substitutes. Popular cosmetic brand Covergirl recently received the Leaping Bunny Certification, making it the biggest company to-date to be granted this honor. As for alternatives to leather, labels have been experimenting with some incredibly interesting materials, including apple- and pineapple-based textiles.
