VP Labs 2021 Holiday Gift Guide

By Jess Arcand, Community Coordinator at Venturepark Labs

It's the most wonderful time of the year! With the holidays right around the corner, we've put together a gift guide so every single person on your list is filled with joy when they unwrap their gifts under the tree. From adorable stocking stuffers to more splurge-worthy items, our alumni have you covered this season.

Give the gift of health and wellness this season with Aura Nutrition's natural and sustainably sourced collagens, proteins, superfoods, and more! Aura offers various bundles and samplers so you can build the perfect holiday gift basket for that special someone who is looking for a wellness brand tailored for women, by women.

Already a fan of Aura Nutrition? Sign up for their monthly subscription option, which will save you 18% on your favourite product - it's the gift that keeps on giving! We also recommend their Collagen Bundle so you can enter the New Year feeling your best.


Every holiday party needs a delicious cocktail. Slurp cocktail mixes contain only the freshest ingredients and zero preservatives. With fresh fruit hand-squeezed in every bottle, all you have to do is add your alcohol of choice (or create a few mocktails because everyone at the party deserves a unique holiday beverage too!).

This holiday season, Slurp is offering a two and four pack bundle that is fully customizable. However, you won't want to miss out on their newly launched seasonal fall flavours, such as their 'Spiced Apple & Pear' mix or 'Cranberry Paloma'! In addition to the mixes, you will also receive cocktail garnishes and fresh eucalyptus.


This is the sign you were waiting for to splurge on a holiday bundle that is not only a gift to the environment due to its toxin and plastic-free properties, but will also give the person on your gift-list a breezy laundry experience.

Kind Laundry's Holiday Bundle is the perfect starter-pack to kickoff someone's eco-friendly journey. Each bundle contains its essential products, including detergent sheets, wool dryer balls, stain remover, and a mesh laundry bag. Kind Laundy were also the 2021 winner of Better Homes & Gardens Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergent Award, so you'll be gifting the best product on the market.


We could not make a list without thinking of our dedicated pet-lovers that are a part of the Venturepark Labs community! Barnyard Biscuits will help give your pets the Elvis treatment this season with their gourmet dog and horse biscuits that are organic and nutritious, and aids in strengthening the bond between you and your furry companion.

With their Dog Biscuit of The Month Club your gift recipient will receive a box that contains 2 flavors of all natural and wholesome creations. They can also snack along with their pup, as every box contains a special decorated edible gourmet biscuit!


Buying gifts for an expecting mom can be daunting for many reasons, but Mobobaby has made the process easy by offering a one-of-a kind product!

Whether you're thinking of putting together a gift basket with onesies, plushies, and soothers or just looking for a stand-alone gift, Mobobaby's Feeding Hat and Nursing Cover is a must-have addition for newborns. It offers privacy for the mom, comfortability for the baby, and is made from eco-friendly hemp that is safe for their skin and the planet.


Depending on your price point, Mammoth Beard Co. offers a range of gifts from apparel, cologne, travel bags, and is an essential destination for maintaining a sculpted and well-groomed beard. They are Canada's first and finest all natural beard care brand that will help your bearded friend or significant other to last through the harshest of Canadian winter climates.
