    by Kortney Campbell on December 17, 2013

    vegan-Holiday-Gift-Guide-necessities Did you know today is the last day to get free shipping from Amazon? While you can pay extra for 2 day shipping up until next week, we like free! We shared a few of our favorite handmade gifts and wearable items in our last two gift guides so today is all about items that we call “necessities”…but they would really just make life easier or a little sweeter!

    Here’s part three of our vegan holiday gifts for the whole family series; the “vegan necessities” gift guide!

    Things She “Needs”:

    vegan-holiday-necessities-her Vitamix | This one kitchen “utensil” can replace your juicer, blender and food processor! I’ve heard it makes some of the best soups ever too! I really love the 5200 or Professional Series, but lets be real here- I’d take any of them, open arms, tears in my eyes!

    Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer | This mixer has my heart. I’ve never seen the mint/aqua color in person, but I regularly look in up on Amazon and dream about all of the delicious treats I would make if this baby was in my face every day. Maybe it’s a good thing I don’t have it….

    Note: All women don’t want kitchen “equipment” for Christmas and I’m in no way alluding to that. My husband thinks I’m a weirdo for wanting items like these as “gifts”. These are just things I’ve been dreaming about for years!

    Things He “Needs”:

    Vegan-holiday-necessities-him Lifefactory 22oz Glass Water Bottle | I spend at least 15% of my time trying to force John to drink water. We love Lifefactory around here. The quality and durability is amazing!

    Wahl Lithium Ion Clipper + Trimmer Kit | Cheap-o clippers are a waste of money around here. Where there is a beard and thick-haired man, there must be quality clippers and this brand is Katie approved (she’s a hairdresser for those of you just tuning in). John needs these!

    Things Little Ones “Need”:

    vegan-holida-necessities-kids Eco Vessel Sippy Cup | We used Lifefactory bottles and switched to the sippy tops, but Judah is going through a “sippy abuse” stage where the cups are thrown into EVERYTHING. While the bottles stay in-tact, the sippy tops crack sometimes when thrown. This stainless steel version will hold up throughout the storm though!

    Stainless Steel Eco Lunch Box | Now that Judah is eating “real” food more often, I find myself searching for containers that will fit in the diaper bag, but aren’t made of plastic. I love that this pack comes with a few different sizes so it can grow with his little appetite!

    What are some of the this-will-make-life-so-much-easier items on your Vegan Holiday Wishlist?

I've been vegan since December 2007, but have loved to cook & create pretty things since before I can remember.
