Just because you can afford it, or may have no personal moral issue with it, doesn't mean your loved ones will wear it. Many people who would happily sport a leather jacket are staunchly opposed to wearing fur. So while you might know a cold-climate dweller or adventurer who would love a top-of-the-line Canada Goose parka, giving anything with real fur – be it raccoon, fox, or rabbit – is presumptuous at best. These days, anything that comes adorned with real fur, from boots to jackets to hats, is also available with faux fur. The last thing you want during the holidays is to ignite a PETA-style ethical brouhaha.
