We’ve all been there. It’s the day before Christmas and you realize you forgot to order one of the dozens of gifts you’re responsible for this year. Yikes! At least we can blame supply chain issues and social distancing this year. Still, it feels really nice to give someone a gift on time.
Don’t fear, Mama’s got your back this year! Instead of rushing to the drug store and picking up bags of candy and a bottle of cheap wine, get the ones you love something that’s good for their body and mind. No preparation needed, and you don't even need to leave the house! Just click and it’s theirs!
All these last-minute gifts are vegan-friendly and good for your mental health and/or physical health. Now you'll never have to wonder again: what do I get for the vegan in the family...? (Bonus: all are great gift options for non-vegans as well!).
