Cruelty Free Christmas

I can't believe it's been nearly a year since I've posted, but after a busy year finishing my studies, I now have more time on my hands so I will hopefully be blogging lots more! The year has flown by, and it's my favourite time of year again - Christmas! Read on to find out how to make sure your Christmas is cruelty free...
The presents!
You can't go wrong with giving cosmetics and toiletries for Christmas presents - just make sure you look out for the leaping bunny symbol! There are loads of great BUAV approved companies to choose from whatever your budget, but here are a few ideas to help you get started:

3 for 2 on gifts and there are some great sets in their own brand range including this gorgeous perfume set which is only £9.99!
Faith in Nature
A great range of natural beauty gift sets such as this yummy chocolate shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath and soap set which is £11.99
Lily Lolo
Gorgeous natural mineral makeup, this Eye Spy kit is only £14.99 and is customisable so you can choose which 3 shades you would like in your box!
Don't forget the guys! Bulldog is a great natural skincare brand for men, and this £12 gift set which comprises of a face wash, shaving gel and moisturiser proves that looking after your skin is definitely not just for girls!
The food!
Everyone looks forward to their Christmas dinner, and just a simple change from turkey to a veggie option such as this Sainsbury's Taste the Difference Nut Roast with Feta (£2.29 or 2 for £4) will ensure your festive meal is cruelty free, and cheaper too!
Most people don't know that a lot of alcoholic drinks are not suitable for vegetarians or vegans due to animal products such as eggs, isinglass (fish swim bladders), gelatine and bones being added during the filtration process. Most drinks don't state whether they are suitable for veggies, but most supermarket own brand ones do, such as this delicate Sauvignon, £18 from Marks and Spencer
Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without chocolate! Why not have a break from dairy, (which will benefit both your body and the cows!) and try some delicious vegan chocolates, such as these Moo Free caramelised pralines, £7.95, which are available from
I hope everyone has a great Christmas and I'll be back in the New Year :)
