Heaven Leigh, owner of Bodhi shares her favourite cruelty-free brands and products to buy your loved ones this Christmas.
Buying that perfect gift is difficult at the best of times and we can all relate to the stress that Christmas shopping can bring. Especially when you want to make sure the gift you buy is vegan, ethical and well-made. Every year I love discovering eco-friendly, plant-based brands that become absolute staples in my bathroom, wardrobe and kitchen. From fashion to skincare, homewares to haircare, inner health products to outer health experiences and of course we couldn’t leave out food!
I hope you enjoy this list of vegan stocking fillers to spoil your loved ones this festive season!
Love Heaven Leigh and the Bodhi Team
