We are firm lovers of Nourish here at VV TV. Their skincare feels amazing. This is the perfect gift for your skincare loving vegan friend.

A stunning gift for those that like to grow their own…. or who may like to give it a try. The kit looks impressive and you can buy 1 Hydro Herb or 3 in a box.
These herbs will look stylish on your windowsill with the added benefit of adding some tasty home grown additions to your food.
These cool hydro herb kits contain all the parts you need to grow your chosen herbs from seed, just follow the instructions and within 7 to 10 days you’ll notice the seeds begin to germinate. Remember these plants need light to grow, more light equals more rapid growth ( you could also try giving them a few extra drops of nutrient solution to really give them some ‘pep’. although the different plants grow at different rates within 7- 8 weeks given enough light you should find they are ready for you to pick some leaves off and use them in your cooking. Continue like this and the plants should give you months of steady growth. There is enough solution to last you around two years.
All kits are available from www.hydro-herb.co.uk £20 each or three for £50. 9 kits available.
For the budding chefs as well as a handy must have for the vegan kitchen the Anysharp Pro is easy to use and revives those dull knives to make food prep easy again.
They say that the Anysharp Pro is the world’s best knife sharpener. It turns blunt knives to like new, super sharp, slicing machines. Simply put the device onto any solid work top and pull the level so it’s suction sticks it firm. Grab a knife and gently pull it through the blades 2-3 times and within seconds and you’ll have sharp knives once again.
The Anysharp Pro is used by many celebrity and professional chefs and is a staple in many homes. Save Knives and Reuse – Whether you’re slicing meat, dicing vegetables, or carving the Sunday Roast, a sharp blade makes cutting effortless. AnySharp Pro restores a super sharp cutting edge to blunt knife blades that have dulled with use.
The Anysharp Pro has a ten year warranty and is available from Amazon
A delicious pressie idea for anyone who wants to avoid the unnecessary animal products in their cider such as gelatine, isinglass, chitin (crab shells) and collagen. Delicious flavours and a lovely glass in this set too.
Cranes Ciders are available in three tantalising flavours: Blueberries & Apples; Cranberries & Limes and Raspberries & Pomegranates. Cranes Ciders use the finest cranberries, alongside British apples, to create a refreshingly natural fruit cider which contains 30% fewer calories and over 40% less sugar compared to brand leaders as the natural sweetness from the super fruits was utilised. Only natural ingredients are used in the creation resulting in them being gluten-free and suitable for vegans.
A lovely gift for someone who doesn’t want to compromise their values and still look great. We love these eyeliners. I personally have sensitive eyes and the Delilah Smooth Shade Stick Collection didn’t irritate my eyes at all. They are soft to use and can create a lovely smokey eye effect too. Love them!
Three perfectly partnered shades, from a matte chocolate brown to a shimmering copper bronze and a pearlescent, peachy pink. These beautiful super-smooth long lasting shadow sticks glide onto the lids and blend effortlessly. Complete with a built in sharpener these buttery soft, highly pigmented sticks are easy to use with impressive staying power.
Another gorgeous hit from the wonderful people at Olverum…. We adore this fragrance here at VV TV and this relaxing pillow mist will make for a super Christmas gift and a good nights sleep too. In fact why not treat yourself!
An elegant diffuser which imbues linens and spaces with a serene natural fragrance, to help promote a tranquil mind and restful sleep, essential for maintaining mood, metabolism and memory.
Restful Sleep Pillow Mist expertly blends essential oils prized for their soothing qualities, and is designed to evoke sensations of comfort, calm and cleanliness. The sweet citrus notes of bergamot, the warm, rich woodiness of amyris, and the full-bodied fruitiness of potent high-altitude lavender combine to create a uniquely sumptuous and somniferous scent.
We at VV TV are big fans of Laboratory Perfumes and their range of gender neutral perfumes are just stunning. We are delighted to now have their fragrant scents in candle form presented in laboratory style glass pitchers around our office.
Laboratory Perfumes Gorse Scented Candle is their second scent and owes its existence to a gorse-lined driveway in Provence. Captivated by the coconut-infused air surrounding the yellow flowers of the gorse bushes, we set about creating a scent that captured the essence of summer in the countryside.
The result is a fresh, crisp fragrance that transports you to sun-kissed heathlands along the coast. Opening with invigorating top note of citrus, and of course, the delightful coconut hit of the gorse flower, the scent is given a spicy depth by the suggestion of cardamom beneath.
Well as this is run by VeggieVision TV we want to give it a mention however it may be something you may like to ask your gift recipient about first!
Are they single, veg*n and ready to mingle? If so why not treat them to a month or longer on our very own dating site?
Now, why should a single veg*n join VeggieVisionDating.com over other sites….? The key difference here is that you aren’t lost in a crowd of people who you definitely aren’t going to date. Everybody on our site is veg*n and they want to date other veg*ns.
Why not make a donation to an animal sanctuary for your loved one or even adopt one of their animals in your friends name? There are a huge amount of well deserving animal sanctuaries all over the UK and worldwide of course.
Some of our favourites include The Retreat Animal Rescue, run by an amazing team who we have known and loved here at VV TV for many many years.
Hopefield Animal Sanctuary has a special place in our hearts too. We ran vegan informational stalls at Hopefield, helped to stop the land being sold over 10 years and much more.
Also Beneath The Wood recently took in 53 pigs saved from an illegal slaughter house.
