10 Vegan Gifts for Your Sister Who Loves Kale Salads and Cute Animals
Holidays are infamously hard on vegan and vegetarian members of the family unit, who have to constantly dodge comments like "You're still not eating meat?" and "You eat chicken, right?" and "How do you get your protein?" and "This cow was a vegetarian!" and "Mmm, gristle." This year, instead of judging your veg and vegan family members, give them something sweet that says, "I know you're a vegan. I'm totally cool with it. And I promise not to try and force-feed you meatloaf this year."
