Over the past year I gathered up some cruelty-free ideas for stocking stuffers and Christmas gifts. Some of these items have been thoroughly tested by me and others just caught my eye and interest. Perhaps you’ll find something you like.
Other than sharing a recipe later this month on Keepin’ It Kind (cookies!), this will be my last blog post for 2013. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

And of course you’re going to need greeting cards, ribbons, and wrapping paper! For the handmade (card) variety (self-promotion alert), check out my Etsy store, Empty on the Inside. Each and every one of my cards is hand-painted – for a just a little more than the cost of a store-bought card ($5.00-5.25).
If you like making your own cards or are looking for beautiful and unusual paper goods, check out Paper Source. It’s one of my favorite places to find high-quality greeting cards, rubber stamps, and all kinds of miscellany.
