Past, Future, and PRESENTS!

Pin It!

Yes, the most important aspects of Christmas are God and being with family. But I’d be lying through my chocolate-covered teeth if I told you I didn’t get excited about presents!

I loved every single one of my presents this year, but on the blog I’ll highlight some that are related to veganism: The first present was definitely one of my favorites, due to the thought behind it. It came from my very dear friend, Evey, and it was the first present I’ve ever received from a blogger friend!

A few weeks ago, I didn’t think it was possible for Evey to get any sweeter. But after receiving the above package from her, I stand corrected; Evey’s even MORE caring that I’d originally thought! Thank you so much, Evey, for brightening my Christmas with vegan chocolates, and, even more importantly, with your kindness and friendship!

And then a gift from me, to my wonderful mom who has a santa collection. It’s Mr. Potato Head Santa! Mr. Potato said that I could feature him in this post because he IS a vegetable, after all!

Katie is the baker, photographer, and author of the popular blog Chocolate-Covered Katie. Her favorite food is chocolate, and she believes in eating a balanced diet that includes dessert every single day. More about Katie—>

  37. Jen aka Jewbacca says:

    yay for vegan chocolate and sharing the holidays with loved ones. and even awesomer-(is that a word?) is your holistic veganness. to me being vegan goes way beyond what i’m eating these days, it’s about tikkun olam-(hebrew commandment to heal the world).

  38. Joanna says:

    you can never have enough aprons!!! i collect them, but usually end up cooking in my bathrobe haha which of course, i have an abundance of those too

  39. vegannurse says:

    Wow, those chocolates do look good, haha.. and I’m so glad you liked them! :-)

    You totally deserved them for being such a dear friend of mine!

    That apron is so cute! Love it! As well as that cute potato head!

  40. ChocolateCoveredVegan says:

    Andrea– Yup, Henry definitely has his own stocking too. He and Molly each received a bone that is bigger than their own heads. And the other day, I walked in the room to find Henry with BOTh bones!

    Laci– Thanks for the Christmas wishes! And Happy Belated Christmas to you as well :o)
