Vegan Gift Guides for the Holidays: Two Great Perspectives

November 30, 2011

From Northwest VEG: Serving up some compassion with our gift-giving has certainly never been easier! Consider keeping your money local by supporting some of the many businesses that give back to our vegan community: restaurant and class gift certificates, stocking stuffers and books from FoodFight! and Herbivore, kitchen goodies from Mirador, or get creative throughout our list of local veg supporters at

We can also do double duty by supporting non-profits, both by giving gift memberships and buying items from their catalogs and websites. Farm Sanctuary, PCRM and PETA come to mind, or contact for information on a $35 Northwest VEG membership which comes with a subscription to VegNews Magazine!

From Megan Ujakovich-Gometzan, Contributing Writer: The holidays are a great time to reflect on what we value most in life. Vegan gift giving is not only a way to make your loved ones happy, but also a way to do your part to lessen the immense amount of animal suffering that happens every holiday season (and beyond).
