It has been extremely busy December (Plant-Based Nutrition Certification studies are way more demanding than I had thought), but I managed to write this little last minute gift guide. Also, see my last year's guide that is still relevant and has more great ideas. 

Vegan Food Gifts

This book is amazing for all your DIY peeps and home cooks that want to create gifts that are kind, eco-conscious and budget-friendly. From baking mixes you can create, package, and label yourself, to gift baskets, preserves, liquors, and more. Also get an extra copy for yourself so next year you can make all your gifts straight out of this book!
Jing Ai

Jing Ai products are formulated with the finest-possible USDA certified- organic ingredients including botanical and flower oils, natural mineral pigments, coconut oil and is 100% gluten & cruelty free. All their containers, pencils and tubes are made with recyclable materials. Comprised of natural fibers, paperboard is recyclable, biodegradable and compostable and printed with soy ink. The bronzer smells like roses (scent actually comes from organic rose oil)and gives you a beautiful, healthy glow.
Caitlin's Super Natural

We all know it is hard to find a deodorant that is a)aluminum-free and b)works. That is why I was so excited to find Caitlin's Super Natural which is made with 100% botanical ingredients. All of their deodorants are completely aluminum free, alcohol free, artificial-fragrance free, gluten free, paraben free, phthalate free, propanediol free, propyl free, propylene glycol free, and triclosan free. They are also completely vegan, never tested on animals and have aromatherapeutic properties because they're made with the highest quality essential oils. Order here!
VItamin and mineral supplements are a good way to ensure you're getting what you need even when you haven't been too good about your diet. I just personally started using the HealthPak in the name of product testing and quite like it! It comes in pre-packed daily AM and PM doses (for 56 days!)of balanced mixture of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to support the entire body, so it is way more than a multivitamin. Perfect gift for someone looking to kickstart a new, healthier way of life.
Jade Yoga Mat

Jade is said to be the best yoga mat by many, especially yoga teachers love it, and my yoga studio uses them exclusively. One important factor when comparing mats is how well the fabric supports you because you don't want your hands to slip while holding down dog (especially at hot yoga where you sweat a ton). Jade definitely wins in the grip department because I don't even have to pull out my Yogitoes when using Jade.
