December has (already) arrived, and the number of shopping days ’til gift-giving time is rapidly dwindling. DON’T PANIC! For the humane holiday shopper, we’ve got lots of suggestions.

Our gift guide is all about amazing companies who generously support Compassion Over Killing’s life-saving work! Each makes fantastic, cruelty-free creations, so supporting them during the season of giving will make everyone smile.

Dr. Bronner’s
This multi-generational soap company has been creating cruelty-free products since 1975. With a CEO who’s an ethical vegan, the company has a firm commitment to supporting animal advocacy and social justice. They donated to COK and lots of other orgs this year, and their products make the perfect stocking stuffers or gift basket swag. Try the Castile Liquid Soap, the All-One Toothpaste, or the Organic Hair Crème. All products (excluding lip balm, which has responsibly sourced beeswax) are vegan.

treelineTreeline Cheese
Another epic option when it comes to cruelty-free choices, Treeline has been known to convert cheese snobs on the spot. The company makes some utterly delicious concoctions that rival the fanciest of French bries or Italian fontals. From cracked pepper hard cheese to scallion soft French-style, there’s something for everyone. The brand’s products are in supermarkets across the U.S., so stock up at your local grocery store and stuff some fabulous gift baskets for everyone on your list.

Tofurky®
Gracing dinner tables since vegan was the furthest thing from mainstream, Tofurky® makes the classic cruelty-free roast. If you’re looking for the ideal main dish to bring to an omnivore’s house — or to host your own plant-based fete — the Tofurky® holiday feast comes complete with a hefty roast, gravy, wild rice stuffing, a Tofurky® jerky stick, a vegan fudge brownie, and some coupons to boot. Yum.

Miyoko’s Kitchen
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a thousand times from would-be vegans: “I can’t live without cheese.” Thanks to Miyoko’s, no one has to. The company’s artisanal, cultured cheeses appeal equally to omnivores and herbivores. With options like double chive cream, double cream sundried tomato garlic, and high sierra rustic alpine — no one will miss the dairy. Order a Holiday Gift Assortment for someone super special in your life, and watch them light up like so many Christmas bulbs.

choc-box-2015Sjaak’s
This amazing organic, cruelty-free chocolatier has offered a box of their delicious vegan milk chocolates to anyone who donates $150 or more to COK. Double win. They also offer a lengthy lineup of mouthwatering treats, perfect for stockings, Secret Santas, and holiday dinners alike. Try the Organic Fair Trade Snowman Tote filled with chocolate peanut butter candies; the Christmas Dark Chocolate European Assortment; or the Salted Caramels!

Vaute Couture
Forget haute couture — vaute couture (with a “v” for vegan) is what compassion trendsetters are into. From coats (with vegan wool, of course!) to sweatshirts to tees, the company has super-stylish threads for everyone on your gift list.

Vegansaurus
This uber-clever lifestyle guide is all about spreading the vegan word in the edgiest (and most adorable) of ways. They’re selling some brand new, super-savvy t-shirts, that sports designs from VEGAN AF to Meatless Monday Unicorns. COK gets ALL of the profits from the sales, so buy some and save some lives. You’ll look adorable while doing it.

Lastly, COK has some super swaggy merchandise for sale! Proceeds from our t-shirts, tote bags, holiday cards, and other goodies go to help us save lives and change the world! We’re so thankful for your support — now and always.
