Cruelty-Free Stocking Stuffers That'll Bring Cheer This Year

Your tree is up, the lights are strung, and your stockings are hung by the chimney (or off the counter) with care. Only one question remains: what to fill them with?

Luna Bars

Luna Bar's Chocolate Peppermint Stick Bar is like taking a bite out of the holidays. With peppermint, chocolate, and no dairy, this sweet treat is sure to be a hit.

Lush Cosmetics

Lush Cosmetics is beloved by vegans everywhere for its dedication to cruelty-free soaps, lotions, bath bombs, and so much more. The company boasts a variety of seasonal goodies that come in all shapes and sizes.

Farm Sanctuary

You can adopt an animal from Farm Sanctuary for a friend or family member, sliding a certificate of adoption and a photograph of the animal inside his or her stocking. Visits are welcomed at Farm Sanctuary, so the adopter can even meet his or her adopted animal in person.

Noble Jerky

We ordered every flavor of this incredible vegan jerky, finished it in one day, and immediately ordered more. Our personal favorite is the chipotle flavor, but they're all winners.

Yes To

Not only is this fantastic cosmetics company easy to find (its products are at Target and other major retailers) but it's also affordable. With holiday-themed masks, bath bombs, and other fun surprises, say yes to Yes To. (Though the company is certified cruelty-free, read the ingredients to be sure the product you want is vegan!)  

Critically Endangered Socks

These cozy socks are made from vegan materials and 20% of the proceeds go to supporting a variety of charity partners, such as the International Elephant Foundation and the Friends of the National Parks Foundation.

Lenny & Larry's Cookies

Delicious, sharable, and easy to find (you can pick them up at 7-Eleven!) these fantastic, 100% vegan cookies are perfect for stuffing in a stocking.

Ole Henrikson

A wonderful way to treat the ones you love is by sliding an Ole Henrikson lotion, serum, or toner into their stocking. High-quality, natural, and cruelty-free, these products would make anyone smile. (Though the company is certified cruelty-free, read the ingredients to be sure the product you want is vegan!)

Lola Loves the Sky

This fun, quiz-style game can help teach children (and adults!) about how animals are exploited for products. Though it deals with the difficult issues surrounding the food industry, it does so in a light-hearted way.

It's official: Making sure your treats are cruelty-free does not mean sacrificing fun, deliciousness, or creativity.
