I have a lovely brother and sister-in-law who are Vegan and the first Christmas after they became Vegan I really panicked about what to buy them. Being vegan is really important to them and I didn't want to get it wrong. If like me you really don't know which products or items are vegan or eco-friendly this is the perfect guide for you. This will help you find you've loved one the perfect gift this festive season.
As with all my gift guides, some of the items I have bought as gifts for my loved ones and some have been gifted for inclusion in this guide. So without further a do let's get into it.
