While I was thinking of blog post ideas for the holiday season I saw it fitting to put together some cruelty free stocking stuffer ideas that are super cheap, and super animal friendly. It makes me super happy when someone shows me something, or gives me something that cruelty free and goes “ I thought of you” or “I knew you’d love this” because it means that when I talk about being cruelty free, or when they ask and I tell they’re actually listening and retaining it and maybe in the future when they’re picking something out for themselves they’ll look to see if it was tested on animals, or they’ll try some new foods that are vegan. These gifts I put together are pretty much perfect for anyone, kids, men, woman, wives, husbands, grandparents, parents, friends, ect…
- Can you really go wrong with getting make-up in your stocking? Even if you’re not the make-up wearing type like me, who doesn’t wear it every day? when I do it’s just a simple eyeliner, maybe mascara and eye shadow if I’m REALLY feeling it. E.l.f, Physicians formula, and wet n wild are three of my favorite cruelty free brands, not only are they great products that no animals had to be harmed to make, but they’re all cheap too! Oh, and they’re available pretty much everywhere!
- It’s the holidays, right? So, it’s always the perfect excuse for a load up on chocolate, right? Yes. Dark Chocolate has always been my favorite chocolate before I began to give up dairy and the Endangered Species is not only delicious, and vegan, but they’re message is wonderful. They’re promise on they’re website states: “10% of our net profits are donated annually to current 10% GiveBack Partners; each is guaranteed a minimum annual donation of $10,000 and is free to use the funds on projects they deem most important. With over $1.3 million generated in the past three years alone, each chocolate purchase adds up to big support that helps wildlife thrive” visit http://www.chocolatebar.com/?page_id=18 to see all the charities they give too, such as the rainforest trust, African wildlife foundation and many more. So if you have an animal lover if you’re life, I can basically guarantee they’ll love this.
- Da bomb bath fizzers. I came across these at target and when I turned one over I saw that it was cruelty free and vegan! I did a little more research on them and found that it was founded by two TEENAGERS. Yeah, how awesome is that. These bath bombs are very, very cool, visit http://www.dabombfizzers.com/about/ to learn more!
- Stuffed Animals. I mean come on? I get it I’m 25, I should be so far over the stuffed animal thing but guess what? I’m not. Now I don’t by any means have a bedroom full of stuffed animals like I did when I was 6 but I do still have a few sentimental ones. I’m a sucker for cute things so these Rudolph stuffed animals I found at Target? I was gushing over how cute they are! You really can’t go wrong with this.
- Dollar Shave Club Subscription. Doing some research, I learned that this company doesn’t test any of their products on animals! Have a guy in your life that needs that Razor or is looking to find something new? The reviews of this company seem to check out pretty great, and knowing that they’re cruelty free makes this a definite recommendation!
- Honest Bubble Bath. Who doesn’t love a bath occasionally? Honest doesn’t test they’re bubble bath on animals! So you, your kids, your significant other, and more can have a relaxing bath knowing no animals were harmed in order for them to do so! They come in four different scents and are small enough to be the perfect stocking stuffer.
They’re are a ton of cruelty free stocking stuffer ideas out there. Some you probably already buy and might have no idea that they’re cruelty free. There’s lotions, sprays, Jewelry, festive socks, books, notebooks, art supplies and so much more! These are just a couple ideas to get you started, and things that I personally would love to get in my stocking as someone who is always making sure that no animals were harmed in the things that I buy. oh AND you could always donate to they’re favorite animals friendly charity in their name.
and always remember if you’re getting someone a pet for Christmas? Adopt, DON’T shop.
