My Favorite Things: Holiday Gift Suggestions & a Giveaway!!!

There are only a couple of weeks left to get your Christmas gift shopping done and if you celebrate Hanukkah, געזונט…it’s already half over. So it’s time for The “V” Word’s Holiday Gift Suggestions and a special Holiday Giveaway!

This year I have compiled a list of my favorite things (like Oprah but sorry, no cars). איך קענען זיין שיין שווער צו ביטע אַזוי די זאכן אַז געמאכט דעם רשימה זענען שיין ספּעציעל. און פילע פון ​​זיי זענען גיפס אַז האַלטן געבן און געבן צוריק ווייַל די זענען די זייער בעסטער מנחורת פון אַלע.

1. ווודסטאַק פאַרם אַנימאַל סאַנקטואַרי
I have to start with ווודסטאַק פאַרם אַנימאַל סאַנקטואַרי because it’s my very favorite place in the world. There is nowhere else that I feel so happy, so at peace and so surrounded by safety and love. Even though I’m lucky enough to live so close to the sanctuary, I don’t get there often enough.

Whether you live near or far, you can give a gift from the WFAS store. They have t-shirts, sweatshirts, האָאָדיעס, טאָטע באַגס, caps, calendars, art work and books.

You can also buy a year-long individual or family membership, gift certificates or sponsor one of the lucky rescued animals. And if you get a chance to visit Woodstock, be sure to give yourself the gift or someone you love a stay in the sanctuary’s beautiful Guesthouse where the animals are right outside your door. You can get gift certificates for Guesthouse stays דאָ.

You can read my רעצענזיע of Lagusta’s Luscious for even more information and pictures.

If you live in Portland, Oregon you can go to the mall and there is a kiosk for Chocolate Decadence. יאָ, you can buy vegan chocolate in the mall! But for those of us who don’t live in Portland, Chocolate Decadence ships. They have a large variety of items and one of the things I love is that you can order small packages of many of their goodies so you can try lots of them.

And for those of us who don’t live in California, we can still enjoy the delicious vegan cinnamon buns from Cinnaholic. They ship and they sell gift certificates. You can enjoy their amazing cinnamon buns (which come frozen) and your choice of over a dozen icing flavors. Read my review of Cinnaholic דאָ.

ווייַן שטענדיק מאכט אַ פייַן טאַלאַנט אָבער מאל עס קענען זיין טשאַלאַנדזשינג צו געפינען וועגאַן וויינז. Barnivore.com איז אַ האַנטיק העלפּער אָבער ניט אַלע קאָמפּאַניעס זענען אויף די וועב פּלאַץ.

דאָ זענען 3 איר קענען זיין זיכער זענען אַכזאָריעס פֿרייַ:

די וועגאַן וויין איז סערטאַפייד סוסטאַינאַבלע און סערטאַפייד וועגאַן. זיי האָבן טשאַרדאָננייַ, סאָוויניאַן בלאַנק, קאַבערנעט סאָוויניאַן און אַ רויט ווייַן צונויפגיסן.

פריי וויניערדז מאַכן אָרגאַניק ווייַן מיט קיין צוגעגעבן סולפיטעס און קיין כייַע דורך-פּראָדוקטן.

און פֿאַר די ווייַט-אַוועק ליב געהאט אָנעס, איר קענען שיף די גרויס וועגאַן וויינז פון וועגאַן סאָממעליער רעכט צו זייער טיר.

4. Gadgets
I’m not a big gadgets person. איך מיינען, I just made about 200 latkes and I grated all the potatoes and onions by hand. פֿאַר מיר, it’s just quicker and easier to do things myself than to wrestle with some contraption with parts and instructions. But there is one gadget I not only can’t live without, איך האָבן 2 of them and I wouldn’t mind having a 3rd. What is this incredible invention? It’s my TofuXpress.

I use my TofuXpress all the time. It easily presses the water out of tofu in no time at all and without the whole “paper towel-dishes-heavy cans” thing. You put the tofu in the TofuXpress, go about your business for even just half an hour, and you come back to a solid block of tofu that will not fall apart when you cook it. I also use mine to press spinach. No more wringing it out with strainers or dishtowels. אַפ אַנ עמעס, if I could only keep one kitchen gadget (other than my knife), this would be it. I’ve given the TofuXpress as a gift before and it’s always appreciated and life-changing.

5. סאַבסקריפּשאַנז
When I first became vegan and I didn’t know any other vegans or vegetarians, I felt pretty isolated and out of the loop. One of the things that really helped me learn about veganism – עסנוואַרג, animals, politics, the environment, health, and who’s who- was reading VegNews Magazine.

עס איז אַזוי פיל אינפֿאָרמאַציע אין בלויז איין אַרויסגעבן פון וועגנעווס און עס טאַקע געלערנט מיר וואָס איז געגאנגען אויף און וואס צו היטן אין די וועגאַן וועלט. Now it’s fun to go through an issue and say “I know her. איך בין פאַסעבאָאָק פריינט מיט אים. איך נאָר האט מיטאָג מיט איר. I’ve been there.” Having a magazine that brings us all together really makes it feel like having a vegan family. סאַבסקריפּשאַנז קענען זיין אין דרוקן אָדער בוים-Free עלעקטראָניק פֿאָרמאַטירונגען.

6. Art and Music
I recently did a couple of posts about art and music. איינער קינסטלער וואס איז ניצן איר קונסט ווי אַ פאָרעם פון כייַע רעכט אַדוואַקאַסי איז שרה קייזער. שרה קריייץ סטאַנינג ברעקלעך פון קונסט, פילע פון ​​וואָס פאַרשפּרייטן דעם אָנזאָג וועגן רחמנות פֿאַר אַנימאַלס. בשעת שרה ברייטער האנט מאכט עטלעכע פון ​​איר קונסט פרילי פאַראַנען צו מענטשן, זי דאָונייץ פּאָרשאַנז פון קיין לייזונג צו צדקה.

איינער פון שרה ס ברעקלעך גראַסעס מיין לעבעדיק אָרט וואַנט און איך ליבע עס אַזוי פיל. גיט דאָ צו לייענען מיין אינטערוויו מיט שרה און צו געפינען אויס ווו איר קענען קויפן איר אַמייזינג קונסט.

האָלידייַס זענען אַ צייַט פֿאַר מלאכים און עס איז ניט קיין קול ווי אַנדזשעליק ווי אַז פון ביסל גרין בלאַקקבירד. “The Summer I Stopped Whining” is the album which is filled with uplifting, שפּאַס, פאַרטראַכט לידער. פילע פון ​​די ליריקס זענען ינספּייערד דורך כייַע ישוז, all of the lyrics are inspired by deep emotions – what Kirsti Gholson, דער זינגער און סאָנגרייטער פון קליין גרין בלאַקקבירד, calls “happysad.”

I listen to this album all the time. Not only do I get the benefit of listening to the ethereal voice of Kirsti Gholson but I learned about a lot of issues such as The Great Ape Protection Act. Kirsti is a vegan animal rights advocate and she donates portions of her proceeds to charities. “The Summer I Stopped Whining” is a magical album and would make a wonderful gift. גיט דאָ צו לייענען מיין אינטערוויו מיט קירסטי גאָולסאַן, הערן אַ מוסטער פון איינער פון איר לידער און צו געפינען אויס ווו איר קענען קויפן איר סי.

7. Baskets and Gift Certificates
Gift baskets are fun. It’s one gift filled with a bunch of gifts. When I want to send someone a gift basket, I head to פּאַנגעאַ וועגאַן סטאָר. פּאַנגאַעאַ, the original one-stop vegan shop, has several gift baskets for different occasions. They even have the “Vegan Basket for Non-Vegans” which contains cool products like cookies and candles that just happen to be vegan. I love this basket because it lets me send a great gift to non-vegan friends without going against my ethics. And if you’re not thrilled with what comes in any of the baskets, Pangea lets you fill your own with any of the hundreds of products available on their site. And they ship super-fast!!

Pangea also sells gift certificates and even better, gift certificates by email. In today’s world of social media, we sometimes want to send a gift to someone whose email address is more familiar to us than their home address.

Gift certificates are great gifts. Sanctuaries such as פאַרם סאַנקטואַרי און ווודסטאַק פאַרם אַנימאַל סאַנקטואַרי offer gift certificates to shop with in their stores. Most restaurants offer gift certificates and who doesn’t love a free meal? You can get gift certificates at your local vegan restaurant, like the popular גאַרדאַן קאַפע אויף די גרין in Woodstock (local for me). Or you can find out which vegan restaurants are near the person you are gifting, call them up and they will probably be willing to mail a gift certificate for you. נאָך אַלע, who wouldn’t want the business? I have done this and it makes a great surprise for someone you love.

8. די “V” וואָרט סטאַף
היי, עס ס מיין בלאָג. איך באַקומען צו העכערן מיין שטאָפּן. די “V” וואָרט גיפט שאָפּ offers tons of merchandise with the official logo of The “V” Word that was designed by the talented יוחנן בעסקע. איר קענען באַקומען שירץ, סוועץ, האַץ, ביבס, הונט שירץ, טאָטעס, שפּייַזקראָם באַגס, ברילן, פלאַסקס, מויז פּאַדס, קנעפּלעך, סטיקערז, אפילו ונטערוועש!!

וועלכער איר קענען טראַכטן פון, you can have…with The “V” Word on it. Maybe I should change the slogan to “זאָגן אים. עסן עס. לעבן אים. Wear it.”

9. דאָנאַטיאָנס
איינער פון די טראדיציעס אַז טאָם און איך האָבן איז אַז בייַ מינדסטער איינער פון אונדזער מנחורת צו די אנדערע האט צו זיין אַ בייַשטייַער צו אַ אָרגאַניזירונג מיר זאָרגן וועגן. דאָנאַטיאָנס זענען אַ ווונדערלעך וועג צו באַערן עמעצער אָדער זייער זיקאָרן. עטלעכע פון ​​אונדזער באַליבט אָרגאַנאַזיישאַנז זענען:

Animal Lovers’ League – the shelter that saved our Benny from the kill pound and פּעטפינדער – the site where we found our Benny;

PetLoss.com – אַ 24 שעה וועב פּלאַץ מיט אַ שמועס פּלאַץ אַז העלפן מענטשן סטראַגאַלינג מיט אַ קראַנק אָדער פאַרלאָרן ליבלינג. דער פּלאַץ איז לויפן דורך איין מענטש וואס האט געטרייַ זיין לעבן צו עס און עס דארף הילף צו האַלטן פליסנדיק. פּעטלאָסס לויפט די מאנטאג נאַכט ליכט ליגהטינג, אַ שיין צערעמאָניע ווו מענטשן פון אַלע איבער דער וועלט באַקומען צוזאַמען אָנליין צו דאַוונען צוזאַמען און ליכט ליכט פֿאַר זייער כייַע בייביז.

רחמנות איבער קילינג און רחמנות פֿאַר אַנימאַלס צוזאמען מיט אנדערע אָרגאַנאַזיישאַנז אַז פירונג אַנדערקאַווער ינוועסטאַגיישאַנז אין כייַע אַכזאָריעס און העלפן העכערן כייַע רעכט זענען שטענדיק דיזערווינג.

סאַנגקטשועריז דאַרפֿן געלט צו האַלטן רעסקיוינג אַנימאַלס. עס זענען די גרויס 3: פאַרם סאַנקטואַרי, קאַצקילז כייַע סאַנקטואַרי, און ווודסטאַק פאַרם אַנימאַל סאַנקטואַרי. עס זענען אויך קלענערער סאַנגקטשועריז אַז טאָן ניט באַקומען ווי פיל דרוק און דעריבער, ווייניקער דאָנאַטיאָנס. איר קענען זוכן צו געפינען וואָס כייַע סאַנגקטשועריז זענען לעבן איר אָדער דער מענטש איר זענען געבן דעם טאַלאַנט צו.

עטלעכע אנדערע סאַנגקטשועריז איך ליבע זענען: דער העלפאַנד סאַנקטואַרי אין טעננעססעע, שלום פּיגס סאַנקטואַרי, און פאַרב קריק כייַע ראַטעווען (זען מיין בלאָג פּאָסטן וועגן פּיינט קריק דאָ). Also check out last year’s post, “מייַן 5 Favorite Gifts that Help Animal Sanctuaries and Organizations.”

10. ספר
Books are my favorite things in the world. Between Tom (a librarian) and myself (a college professor), we have books everywhere! Last year I posted “מייַן 10 Favorite Books for Holiday Gift Giving.” That list included writers such as Neal Barnard, Tina Volpe, Jeffrey Masson, Peter Singer, John Robbins, Melanie Joy, Will Tuttle, Will Potter and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. I still stand by this list but there are some books that have come out since last year that I must add to my favorites list.

The Adventures of Vivian Sharpe: Vegan Superhero דורך מאַרלאַ רויז – a wonderfully written book by the very talented Marla Rose. A normal teenage girl is visited by the spirit of a pig one night and her life is never the same again. Written in an authentic adolescent voice, this book explores topics such as empathy, compassion, fitting in, standing out, standing up for what you believe is right, and figuring out who you are. Vivian Sharpe goes from being an ordinary 15-year old to a hero and who doesn’t need a vegan hero? Get this for the kids and the adults on your gift list.


That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals און Vegan is Love by Ruby Roth – די זענען 2 children’s books that are beautifully written and illustrated. They both explain, in language appropriate for little kids, why eating animals is not a nice thing to do and why loving animals means not eating them, hurting them or exploiting them. There is nothing graphic in these books. These are stunning books for parents to read with their children, to make them think and to open their hearts to animals and compassionate living.

I don’t buy a lot of cookbooks (and yes, I’m working on mine. איך וויסן, איך וויסן!) but there are a few I would recommend:

Great Gluten-Free Eats by Allyson Kramer – if you are vegan AND gluten-free, you want this book. Delicious recipes from the creator of the popular blog, Manifest Vegan. Check out the blog just for the beautiful photography too!

The Sexy Vegan Cookbook by Brian L. Patton – Not only does this book have delicious and easy recipes but it’s hysterical to read. You may know Brian from his cooking videos (also hysterical) and this book is an extension of that. I love a book where you don’t just get a recipe but you get the author’s personality. You’ll laugh so hard, you’ll burn more calories to eat more of Brian’s food.

Any cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz (אַפּעטיט פֿאַר רעדוקטיאָן is my favorite). It’s Isa, need I say anything else?

Viva Vegan און Vegan Eats World by Terry Hope Romero – first she thrilled us with vegan Latin food and now Terry is taking us all over the world for more vegan deliciousness. This book is on my wishlist.

The Gentle Chef Cookbook: Vegan Cuisine for the Ethical Gourmet by Skye Michael Conroy – this is available as a black and white paper book or as a PDF book on CD with full-color illustrations. Either way the book is filled with Skye’s delicious vegan recipes. Skye is the master of all things seitan and artisanal vegan cheese. I got mine; be sure to get yours.

די מאַזלדיק אָנעס: מיין פּאַססיאָנאַטע קאַמף פֿאַר פאַרם אַנימאַלס by Jenny Brown with Gretchen Primack – the amazing journey of Jenny Brown, from cancer survivor and McDonald’s employee to television production to undercover investigator for animal cruelty to co-founder of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. A passionate book that tells Jenny’s story along with the stories of some of the residents of the sanctuary, the lucky ones. This book illustrates what compassion, veganism and advocacy are all about. Proceeds from the book, which you can buy autographed, all go to the sanctuary. Read my review of The Lucky Ones דאָ.

And that leads to די “V” Word’s Holiday Giveaway!

Five (5) random “lucky ones” will win an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Jenny Brown’s “די מאַזלדיק אָנעס: My Passionate Fight for Farm Animals.”

  1. Nearly every day, I’m consciously aware of that I’m lucky and grateful to be vegan. I also feel lucky to have a wonderful and close family … my kids and my grandkids are amazing people. I’m lucky that my parents are still alive, and that my sister and I are close. I have mostly good health, a place to live, and food to eat. It’s all good 🙂

  2. Gluten Free Vegan Journey דעצעמבער 19, 2012 בייַ 3:23 בין #

    I feel lucky this Christmas to have my health back, so I can be with my amazing husband, קינדער, grandchildren, and friends! Being gluten free and vegan has saved my life, ממש! After years of being sick and tired of being sick and tired, changing my diet changed my life, and nullified my need for 11 daily prescriptions, regular visits to cardiologists, rheumatologists, and internal medicine specialists. Best of all eliminated a need for surgery and chemo after my stage 4 breast cancer was discovered; I am now free of cancer, האַרץ קרענק, high blood pressure, GERD, IBS, migraines, Lupus, Type 2 Diabetes, obesity, and breast cancer!

    I feel lucky to have become a vegan with my husband at the same time and how we support each other through this journey.

    I’m lucky to have a family that though don’t share my same views on animal rights, respect my decision and have never for even a second disrespected my lifestyle.

    So many things I feel lucky for, מישפּאָכע, health, and lots of hope for the world, we have to remain positive and spread information and love, one can’t go without the other.

    Peace

    I don’t know if “lucky” is the right word… but I’m extremely grateful that the internet came along when it did to wake me up from being an “excusitarian” (sp?) vegetarian and allowed me to follow my heart into the world of veganism. I’m so in love with all of the blogs and support; I don’t know if I would have gotten where I am in life without them!

    This is a toughie. I have a lot to be thankful for. So much. My newly opened eyes has to be the biggest, כאָטש. This is my second December as a vegan and I feel grateful that so many people put the information out there I needed to learn, even though I kind of didn’t want to know. And I’m grateful that on April 6, 2011 I was brave enough to press “play” and watch a video about where my food was really coming from. I am grateful in a redeemed-Ebenezer-Scrooge kind of way to live kinder and do some good with the time I have left on this planet! I’m grateful to all the people like Jenny Brown who do such fantastic work. So much to be grateful for. So much to do! 🙂 Have a very happy holiday!
