Cyber Monday Deals for Vegans (and Anyone Else) On Your List!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?  If so, you are way ahead of me!  In past years, I’ve tried to shop all year long – picking up gifts at art fairs, on trips, and whenever a good find would come my way.  However, this year I don’t have even a single gift purchased at this point.  Whoops!  Luckily, there are so many good deals out there, especially today for Cyber Monday.  Here are a few ideas for the lucky people on your list:

Vegan Cuts Snack BoxVegan Cuts:  Vegan Cuts is offering so many discounts today, even on their monthly snack boxes!  (Don’t know about their monthly boxes?  Here’s my most recent review of their snack boxes.)  Which Vegan Cuts items will be on my wish list?  The wooden sheep necklace, a subscription to the Beauty Box, and one of their New York for the Holidays boxes.

Freshly squeezed orange juiceStrawesome:  I have given beautiful glass straws from Strawesome multiple times as a gift, and they make regular appearances here on my blog.  Not only are they great for smoothies, juices, and, well, any and all drinking purposes, they also make the whole occasion so much more festive.  With a variety of designs, colors, and shapes, they are perfect as a stocking stuffer or for anyone on your list.  (They are dishwasher safe, but you’ll still want to be sure to add a cleaning brush to your order, if you don’t already have one!)  For Cyber Monday they’re offering free shipping with any sized order with the code GREATGIFT.

Vitamix:  I pined after a Vitamix blender for literally years before I got one.  It is a big investment, but one that I have never regretted.  It makes all of my dressings, sauces, and smoothies silky smooth, and when I make cashew based cheeses or sauces, no soaking is necessary, which I just love.  I even make my own peanut butter!  I bought a reconditioned Vitamix for a reduced price, which still has a lengthy warrantee, and has worked beautifully from day one.  Their reconditioned models start at $279 right now.  What’s on my list from Vitamix?  A dry grains container for making my own flour and kneading dough. For free shipping, click here.

herbivore clothingHerbivore:  When we were in Portland last spring, I was able to visit the brick and mortar location of Herbivore and admire all of their shirts, scarves, bags, and more.  But it was hardly the first time that I’d bought anything from Herbivore.  Both David and I have shirts from them, and they’re always coming out with new designs.  (If only I hadn’t bought a Good Luck elephant sweatshirt in rust while I was there, I would totally be adding the new aqua version to my list!  The Eat No Harm slouchy pull-over and Compassion is Invincible tee are super cute as well.)  Everything on their site is on sale until midnight Thursday with the 15% off coupon code – FORTHEANIMALS.

Isa Does It cookbook coverCookbooks:  My cookbook collection is overflowing at this point, but it’s so hard to stop!  It seems like any time my collection feels complete, a new book comes on the market that sweeps me off my feet.  Currently I’m head over heels for Isa Does It (review here), but I also highly recommend Vegan Diner, Viva Vegan, Vegan Eats World and Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day just to name a few.  (Can’t decide which cookbook to get?  All of my cookbook reviews are here.)  The cookbook on my Christmas wish list this year is Julie Hasson’s new pizza oriented book, Vegan Pizza.  For today only, take 30% off of any one book on Amazon with the code BOOKDEAL.

voopee piesVooPee Pies:  I was lucky enough to win six VooPee pies from Gigi at Veganville a month or so ago.  The large sandwich cookies were shipped to my door, individually wrapped, and filled with a healthy layer of creamy frosting in between.  Today is the last day to get 20% off your order with the code VEGANMEOW.

Gold Mine Sauerkraut:  We’re drawing names this year for our extended family Christmas and had to include five ideas for gifts around $20 that we’d enjoy receiving.  Whoever gets my name may be surprised to find sauerkraut on my short list!  Some people enjoy a fine wine, and hey, me too, but I also enjoy a fine sauerkraut!  And the raw garlic kraut is fantastic and not available in Iowa.  (For a review of their kraut, click here.)  The closest I can find it is in Chicago or online!  If someone on your list is a big sauerkraut lover, Gold Mine is offering $5 off shipping with the code 13115F for orders of $100 or less and free shipping with the code 1311FS for orders of more than $100.

eli's earth dream big barSjaak’s Chocolate:  My very favorite chocolate company, Sjaak’s, is offering 25% off of everything on their site, and today is the last day!  I’m going to be doing a full review of their truffles in an upcoming post, but you can read about my deep and heartfelt feelings for their Dream Big candy bar here.  All of their products are now vegan.  So just get me one of everything and we should be good.  The 25% off code is BLACKFRIDAY.

Have you found any amazing Cyber Monday deals?  What gifts are you hoping to receive or looking forward to give this year?

  1. We aren’t doing presents this year, but I am jealous of anyone who gets you as their Secret Santa 😉

  2. Nice selections. VitaMix is offering $50 off their jars today and I’m coveting a 46-ounce jar, but having trouble justifying the expense. Even with the discount, it costs more than most regular blenders. Sigh. I want it.

    • Oh, I didn’t realize that! That is a good deal! I know what you mean about the extra expense, though. It’s a sad irony that the time of year when you’re supposed to be getting gifts for other people is also the same time of year when prices are best on those things you’d most like for yourself! :)

  3. What? Andrea said “nice selections” just nice when it includes Veganville? I am going to hunt her down. Hunt poor choice of words. These great gifts. Thank you so much for including Veganville. I was sauerkraut in my stocking.

    • I’m glad there’s someone else out there who would like sauerkraut in her stocking, Gigi! Last year David put a wonderful assortment of things in my Christmas stocking like my favorite coconut water, kale chips, and dehydrated tomato slices. I laughed and laughed thinking about how for almost anyone else there, it would have been the worst Christmas ever. :)

      You’re very welcome for the inclusion! I loved my VooPee pies and became quite popular with all of the friends who got a taste for themselves! I think anyone would be happy to see that box arrive in the mail.

  4. i had decided that i will not shop durng the crazyness. but all these fantastic deals always entice me into buying things I dont even need. i did not give in though. just bought stuff that is needed. :)

    • Good for you, Richa! I didn’t do any Black Friday shopping either. We were in Chicago for the long weekend, and our hotel was right by a mall. I was surprised to see on Thanksgiving how the parking lot outside was empty at 6 pm and then packed at 8 pm. I never buy big electronics and gaming systems for Christmas, and so those Black Friday deals aren’t much of an incentive for me.

  5. acookinthemaking says:

    What an awesome list! I’m hungry for sauerkraut now–haha!

  6. Nope, I haven’t started Xmas shopping nor Cyber Monday shopping, but I would love to at some point. I have a week left here to catch up with some cookbook and product reviews and then I head to France for awhile in time for the holidays. What a great deal! A Vitamix is still on my wishlist, I just wish I have the time to settle down and use it often. I wish there’s a travel Vitamix. Wow the VooPee pies sound decadent, especially the sauerkraut. I’ve tried Sjaak’s chocolate, I like their Dream Big candy bar, too.

    • How lovely that you’ll be spending the holidays in France! I look forward to hearing all about it. I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time.
