If there really was a Santa, do you think he'd cram crappy candy canes and toxic tchotchkes into our Christmas stockings? Spoiler alert: Of course not! He's the ultimate nice guy, he'd totally eschew high-fructose corn syrup confections and paraben-laden cosmetics and would instead lovingly fill our hanging hosiery with nice, nurturing goodies like these.

1. Kid's (or grown-ups) vegan gingerbread lip balm

For the little kissers of your little kissers, this all-natural vegan balm (pictured above) from Ginger & Waldo is made delicious with candelilla wax, organic fair trade cocoa butter, organic sunflower seed oil, organic coconut oil, and nut-free flavor. Notice the notable lack of the pesky parabens and petroleum found in so many lip products. (Ginger & Waldo, $3.50)

2. Handmade coin purse

For the girl or lady-girl in need of a place to stow her coins and other assorted treasures, these sweet, wee coin purses are handmade from 100-percent cotton fabric and use no glue or other adhesives. The variety of prints and patterns offered are impossibly cute. (Cutefariybear, $18.95)

3. Christmas coal soap

Yes, this is for the naughty ones on your list; the naughty ones that you want to pamper, that is. This festively-scented lump of coal is vegan and made with coconut carbon and pure aloe vera juice. Comes in a cute muslin bag with 4 slices (plus another slice of free bonus soap). (Maddieloos, $5.40)

4. Merlin's Beard mustache wax

Created to tame the world's wily whiskers without relying on petroleum-based ingredients, this grooming essential works its magic through a combination of beeswax and 100% pure lanolin, along with guar gum and essential oils. Comes in peppermint and spiced scents. (Merlin's Beard, $9)

5. Raw fair-trade vegan truffles
