It can be tough choosing ethical gifts for people, whether you're buying for a vegan, or you're vegan yourself and don't want to compromise your morals.
There is a huge range of suitable options out there, from tasty treats, top-notch designer bags, and extravagant blow-out trainers.
We have compiled a list of some of our favorite ideas to help inspire you.
LaBante London is a vegan-certified brand producing luxury handbags and sunglasses. The company has put together a special gift box for Christmas.
The Mystery Gift Box contains a surprise LaBante London handbag, a sterling silver item of jewelry, and vegan chocolates. Valued at over £120, it is the perfect vegan Christmas gift for someone you love.
Buying for someone who loves scent? Brighton-based Eden Perfumes offers a range of handmade options which replicate famous perfumes without the animal testing.
It uses vegan ingredients including jasmine, vanilla, passion fruit, musk, saffron, oud, sandalwood and others.
Know someone who'd like to be more eco-friendly? How about putting together a zero-waste kit for them?
Some essentials include re-useable bags, cups, bamboo straws, and travel cutlery. You could also look at toiletries, including a bamboo toothbrush, or bars of soap. Just make sure you're not buying duplicates or items the recipient doesn't need!
Snack lovers will appreciate a subscription to The Vegan Kind's Lifestyle Box, which includes a range of treats, as well as recipes cards, and lifestyle items (previous examples include a bamboo toothbrush, dry shampoo, and a book).
You can opt for a range of subscriptions, from a one-off box to a year's worth. Boxes are delivered at the beginning of every month.
If you want to go all out and treat someone to a hugely extravagant gift, you could always opt for a pair of vegan Stan Smith trainers by Stella McCartney for Adidas.
The shoe - called the 'Stella Stan Smith' - has a few special tweaks, including a color block heel panel and stars (McCartney's signature) stamped down the side.
McCartney describes her version as 'a modern update that retains the classic appeal of the original'.
