Oprah’s iconic favorite things list is the highlight of everyone’s holiday season (just me??) which made me think to myself.. wouldn’t it be great to have a vegan version? Giftables without guilt. Without further ado, I present to you.. Nicole’s Vegan Favorite Things.
A NYC staple- the Broadway show makes the perfect gift for literally anyone. I've met only a handful of people that dislike any joyful musical sensation.
Bite Santa’s head off. You have my permission! These Christmas chocolates in the shape of Santa are the perfect gift for that vegan/dairy-free/soy-free/gluten-free friend of yours.
Yay! A Hanukkah tradition made vegan, finally! Say buh bye to milk chocolate gelt and sholom to cruelty-free edible "money".
The gift no one will ever buy for themselves.. a luxe weekender. Matt and Nat’s vegan leather stands up to the elements and a rogue washing machine so it can take a beating. The coolest part of this bag besides it’s totally unisex? It unzips to become a garment bag for that dress once you get to your destination.
Can you tell I love Matt and Nat? Everyone can use a backpack but not everyone prides themselves on a collection of backpacks. It’s a fabulous shape and size for the student, the traveler or the city commuter.
Maybe I’m biased but I think giving the gift of a Manhattan vegan tour with moi is the ultimate vegan traveler experience. Explore New York food, sights and expertise courtesy of a local (me, again!). My tours are popular gifts for any occasion.
If there's an emotion for it, Sticky Nikki probably expressed it. My line of stationery and home goods are original, whimsical and perfect for kids and adults alike.
The perfect pick-me-up to any winter ensemble. I’m an earmuff fanatic because I don’t like the wind getting to my ears through a hat so I often layer a beanie with oversized muffs like these.
Need a beanie to go with those earmuffs? This party on a hat is adorable.
A staple in my beauty cabinet, Ellovi's butters and lip balms are the most luxe kind of moisture you can nourish your skin with. No water, just pure nature. Plus, I'm allergic to Aloe Vera and I will kneel at the alter of any company whose product moisturizes without it.
