Stocking Stuffers & Small Gift Ideas

Illustration of Present-OliverioOver 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).

    Wow, that is quite the list! I love my “To-Go-Ware” – I carry a set in my backpack when I hike 😀 And thank you for including me in your list!

    You could make up a wonderful hamper with some of those goodies. A very happy Christmas to you, Kel and Ike. Thanks for all the great posts in 2013 – looking forward to what’s in store here next year! 🙂

    So many great ideas! I love the “To-Go Ware” and the shirts and the books! I got a sample of the Rescue Chocolate in my Vegan Cuts box and it was SO good. Love this Annie. Have a wonderful holiday season and “see” you next year!

    PS~I love the VVP video announcing the winners, SO cool.
