The holiday season is upon us, which means it is also gifting season! In my culture, a gift is always a must but i find it that often, people would rather buy something that the other person doesn't even need for the sake of giving something rather than going empty handed. That’s why this season I have pledged to myself that when someone asks me “what do you want for Christmas?” I will answer honestly! This will make my grandma’s life easier, I will actually get something that I will use rather than getting more socks that my drawer can no longer handle haha…
But if you are unsure of what to gift to the special people in your life, i have created this (hopefully) helpful guide full of vegan and eco gifts that will definitely fit whatever budget you have and they will also do good to the world!
(Even better if you can find these gifts second-hand or if you gift experiences over things)
