Illustration of Present-OliverioOver the past year I gathered up some cruelty-free ideas for stocking stuffers and Christmas gifts.  Some of these items have been thoroughly tested by me and others just caught my eye and interest.  Perhaps you’ll find something you like.

Other than sharing a recipe later this month on Keepin’ It Kind (cookies!), this will be my last blog post for 2013.  Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
