Christmas gift guide for Vegan and Eco friendly 2022 - AD - MissLJBeauty

Christmas gift guide for Vegan and Eco friendly 2022 - AD

 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. 

Food and sweet treats 


christmas jam

First up we have a Bramble and Apple Jam. Now, this isn't any jam this is the jam I made. I hand-picked the brambles and the apples. The brambles came from my garden and the apples from a local garden that kindly let me pick some of their apples. 

I wanted to make a really special gift that I could gift my In-law which was vegan so everyone can enjoy it. So I made this jam and It looks so professional as I actually had labels made by Vista print. I am really happy with the way the Jam looks and I think this will make a very special gift. If you would like the recipe l let me know.

Here we have a selection of products from Knottys. They do the best Vegan nut butter. This year I am making my brother and sister-in-law a hamper of vegan products and I had to include some nut butter. Knotty use only the finest vegan ingredients in all their products

Drinks

Where to start.  They donate 1% of revenue back to amazing eco projects like Trees for city and Wyre community land trust. Each one of their bottles comes with a book of Seedsticks. Each stick contains a seed that will grow when placed in soil, to include a variety of wildflowers which includes Poppy, Ox-eye Daisy, Corn Chamomile and Corn Marigold seeds. WildJac is a caring Eco and suitability brand with awesome ethics. 

That is all before we get into the products. Here are the three I have samples and are all delicious in their own unique way. 

Plum Pudding Rum Liqueur - a celebratory serve that tastes like Christmas pudding in a glass. Local Shropshire plums are steeped in rum, then carefully blended with warming nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon with a twist of citrus. The result is smooth with raisin depth and a signature spiced finish. The perfect slow-sipper.

Apple Spiced Rum - made with ripe English apples complimented by warming spices, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, pepper and a twist of citrus on the finish. It’s perfect for the turning weather and cosy nights in.

Apple and Elderberry Gin - The ultimate autumn spirit, our apple and elderberry gin is a fresh combination of ripe, crisp apple and fruity red berries on the nose. A fruit-forward gin with jammy afternotes and a vibrant botanical finish.
kombucha drink
This is hands down my favourite fizzy drink, Remedy Kombucha Fruity Faves. a mixed case of 24 cans With 6 each of the following flavours mango passion, raspberry lemonade, Peach and cherry plum. I love them so much and drink them all the time. I would love this as a gift. 
Remedy Kombucha is the UK’s favourite Kombucha brand for a reason - its range of sparkling, live-cultured drinks are naturally free from sugar and artificial sweeteners, and use a traditional long-aged brewing process that results in an unrivalled depth of taste. Not only do Remedy’s drinks contain organic acids and antioxidants which can support gut health, the complex blend of sweet and sour notes resulting from the long-age brew create a delicious daytime soft drink or evening alternative.
