I don’t know about you, but I love Christmas! It’s a time to get together with friends and family and eat a lot of yummy vegan food, and—OK, I’ll just go ahead and say it—it’s the perfect excuse to get your shopping on!

Whether you’re looking for that perfect gift for your other half or a sibling or if you just want to treat yourself for being on the “nice” list this year—peta2 has you covered! Check out some of our favorite cruelty-free Christmas gifts:

  • e.l.f.: Do you know any makeup fans, or are you looking to get all glammed up for a holiday party? e.l.f. has an awesome all-vegan makeup line that’s super-affordable, and the best part is that you can find it at almost any drugstore. Oh, and e.l.f. has the cutest holiday makeup packs, too!
  • “Not a Nugget” Zip Hoodie: Everyone needs to stay warm during the winter, so why not do it in style while spreading the message about going vegan at the same time?
  • Vegan shoes: Shopping for a girl? In my book, you can never go wrong with shoes! Check out our favorite cruelty-free shoe trends for winter.
  • Cookies: Ever heard the phrase “A way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”? Well, guess what? That works with everybody! Show all your friends how much you ♥ them and how delicious vegan food is by making some vegan sweets for them. Check out our recipe section for some awesome ideas on what to make.
  • Movies: There’s nothing better than cuddling up on a cold winter day to watch movies. Check out our list of animal-friendly movies that you can leave under the tree for your friends this year.
  • Vegan stocking stuffers: When it comes to Christmas stockings (or anything in life!), you can’t go wrong with candy. Check out some of our favorite vegan candy and pretty them up with our holiday tags.
  • Give a PETA Present: Choose a PETA “virtual gift” to help save a rabbit’s skin, give a lonely “backyard dog” a toy, or help rescue an animal in need. Your recipient will receive an e-card with a personal message, and you’ll be able to help the animals you love!

Oh, and don’t forget those very special family members—your animal companions! Check out our top five gifts for dogs and cats.

Happy holidays from peta2!

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.

I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.
