‘Tis The Season To Give (Cruelty-Free)

December, the dream: fluffy snow, delicious nut roast, the sinfully rich taste of dark hot chocolate, the smell of pine…and a tempting pile of expertly wrapped gifts under the perfectly adorned Christmas tree. Or something.

December, the reality: miserable rain and endless gray days, the food getting burned, the dog eating the Christmas decorations (it’s happened to me…scary stuff) and your gift wrapping looking like the artful labour of an enthusiastic five-year-old let loose with reindeer-printed wrapping paper from the nearest supermarket. Not exactly a holiday-film Christmas.

But this year, at least the gifts you give can be perfect, thanks to our amazing gift guide. Enjoy. Shop. Gift. Bring happiness. And hey, don’t forget to get yourself a little something, too. We know you deserve it.
