As a gift lover, this year I took part in Sarah Kirby’s Cruelty-Free Vegan Secret Santa. After sending off my gift in the post it sure wasn’t long until mine arrived on my doorstep. Here I share with you my Cruelty-Free Vegan Secret Santa gifts that were thoughtful, fantastic and beautifully wrapped as well as two more Vegan Secret Santa gifts I acquired along the way!
The first gift I opened was a beautiful travel journal from Paperchase with a rose gold pen to accompany. My Secret Santa must have scoured my social media channels as well as my blog to see that I love to travel and am keen to document my ideas and notes on the way. This faux leather blue book has sections for my itinerary (a must), photographs, places of interest along with a space to track travel spending. This will definitely appear in my hold luggage on my next trip abroad!
Wax Melts, Lip Balm & Hand Soap
The next few items I unwrapped smelt incredible! The first almost edible item was the The Wright Gift Chocolate Orange Lip Balm which tastes exactly like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange – festive indeed. The Wright Gift company are organic, vegan and handmade which makes the gifts unique and thoughtful. Another product from The Wright Gift was a Passionfruit & Pink Grapefruit Hand Soap which is made from she butter, cocoa butter & mango butter to nourish and cleanse my skin. This will be great to have alongside the bathroom sink when guests come over making me appear more adult than ever!
Alongside this was a small drawstring bag of Elixir Apothecary All Natural Wax Melts in the flavours Sweet Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vanilla & Sage, Eucalyptus and a Mandarin, Lime & Grapefruit. I cannot wait to use these in my burner and make the house smell fresh, fruity and homely.
Dark Chocolate Drops & Vegan Truffles
The final gift from my#cfvsecretsanta was a Hotel Chocolat Dark Chocolate Santa Tiddly Pot full of dark chocolate drops made from 70% cocoa. I cannot wait to dig into these on Christmas day and share with friends and family. From another Secret Santa I took part in at work, I was gifted a box of the Booja Booja Almond & Sea Salt Caramel Truffles. It was as if they had read my mind having only tried these truffles for the first time last week and fell in love with them. They are so dark, salty and creamy with a rich fondant texture. My final gift is pictured below, my Reindeer Stripey Socks which are festive and will keep my little feet warm!
