I received several gifts that were given with my lifestyle changes in mind. This was the best thought, from one of my daughters boyfriend.

That's great. I also recieved several vegan-friendly gifts such as vegan soap and cookbooks. But I also got a leather purse from my grandma who knows I'm vegan.
I will hopefully be able to exchange it though.

Same. I got vegan makeup and my friends checked to see if the lotion they game me wasnt tested on animals. But then my grandma (who also game me vegan makeup) gave me a leather necklace. My mom gave me really un-vegan candy. Not even veg, actually. Oh well...I gave it away.

I still find that, as supportive as my family is, they don't completely understand the vegan lifestyle. Omni's don't always get the other aspects of being vegan, outside of the main diet issues. I just had a conversation with my cousin and she thought vegan meant no dairy. She had no idea about leather, wool, makeup, or even trace ingredients in food, etc.

My mom gave me a wool sweater. It's beautiful but... no... and I got tons of chocolate I won't eat. But in fairness, I haven't really told them, because they'd think the NO ANIMAL products was crazy. The food they're understanding with. All I ate on Christmas Eve was apple slices- all there was out of an entire buffet feast that was Vegan, and they didn't get annoyed.

My step-son and his girlfriend got me a new cookbook. Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker by Robin Robertson. It looks like most, if not all, of the recipes are vegan or list vegan alternatives.

I've been looking for veggie recipes that I can make in my slow cooker because I'm working two jobs now and sometimes I'm just too busy to cook. I've been making extra food on my days off and warming it up on my busy days. Now I have a whole book of recipes that will cook while I'm getting some sleep. (I work nights and sleep in the afternoon.) It's nice to have a hot, fresh alternative to warmed up leftovers.

my niece gave me a purse made from man made materials -- that was really thoughtful of her. i also received a popcorn tin with 3 flavors, non vegan, but my hubby and kids are eating that.

then my kids brought me to a vegan chinese restaurant -- it was great!
