Do images like these evoke fear in you? Black Friday has taken a major turn in the last couple of years to the point where it shouldn’t even be called Black Friday sine retailers everywhere are jumping on the Thursday opening bandwagon.
I remember waking up super early with my father growing up and hitting one of the major retailers. We were never going for anything in particular we would just go for the experience of maybe buying a large tin full of popcorn for $2.00. We definitely weren’t sleeping in our cars over night or fighting people like the scene in Jingle All the Way. We were calm cool and collected and usually home before my sister and mother had attempted to get out of bed.
As a child this seemed like a fun adventure with my dad, as an adult it seems like more of a nightmare. And with the Internet at our finger tips, going out on Black Friday can be left to only the thrill seekers.
So if this isn’t your cup of tea I have compiled some of the websites where you can buy great vegan gifts right from your couch.
1.) Herbivore Clothing and they even have specials throughout the weekend with this link : http://us1.campaign-archive1.com/?u=b947dcebd3a9481efd34342b4&id=7505a75701
2.) Matt and Nat, this is one of my favorite vegan line of products and their website offers access to all their products. www.mattandnat.com
3.) Mooshoes offers all sorts of stylish vegan shoes including their own brand, Novacs which affectionately means, no cows. www.mooshoes.com
4.) Alternative Outfitters, an online vegan boutique. www.alternativeoutfitters.com
These are just a few samplings of some sites online that offer great and unique vegan products. Be sure to keep checking our blog as we will be unveiling some of our favorite gift ideas for the season.
