Can you believe we are right in the middle of the festive season again?  We’ve celebrated Halloween, Guy Fawkes night and Thanksgiving,  and now Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa and the New Year are coming up!  Whew! 

We’ve come up with some great gift ideas that meet the following criteria: vegan (obviously), perfect for travel, long lasting and/or eco-friendly.   We also thought it best to have all these gifts available from Etsy, in an effort to support smaller scale artisans rather than big companies this year.

1. Unpaper Towels

Unpaper Towels
These days, climate change and the environment seem to be on everybody's mind, and everyone's trying their best to live the most responsible life they can.   We thought we'd present you with some great sustainable gift ideas that are all vegan (

Instead of tissues or paper towels, use these handy cloths!  This will help you to refuse single-serve napkins at the sandwich shop, wipe your brow on a hot summer’s day, you name it.  Plus they're cute! 

Bento Bags

These flannelette bags are great to wrap up sandwiches, salads, produce at the grocery stores, and they fold flat at take up very little space in your luggage.

City Rings

Does a friend or family member have a love affair with a particular city? Get the skyline put on to a ring for them to wear!  Pretty cool huh?

Traveler Notebook

This traveler’s notebook has plenty of space to stick mementos of your trip as well as serve as your daily journal.  Plus it looks the part as well! 

Travel Wallet

Our (well, Brighde’s) new wallet!  Also made from ‘leather paper’, the only plastic part is the coin section zip.

convertible backpack

This gorgeous bag is a backpack and a shoulder bag. Fully adjustable and a little dressier than most travel bags.  

Snack Pouch

If you are packing lunches or on a self-catering holiday with plenty of picnic lunches, then these pouches will come in handy.

Bug Balm

DEET is effective at repelling mosquitos, but it is also has a lot of chemicals and usually comes in an aerosol. This balm made out of natural ingredients can be used to treat mosquito bites as well.
