We all know the importance of sustainability and shopping local, especially after this year. Here’s a few ideas of gifts you can get to delight that vegan chum in your life.

Vegan cheeseboard

Okay hear me out. Violife is definitely the tastiest vegan cheese in Ireland. Though it may look like a wedge of plastic, the main ingredient of Violife is coconut oil so it could be a whole lot worse. The unveiling of the cheeseboard is definitely a highlight of Christmas evening. Just as you’re starting to awaken after dinner and you need that extra hit of food to put you to sleep for the last 30 minutes of ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’. Get your vegan pal this gift at Supervalu so they don’t miss out on the evening snoozes.

Vegan food voucher

They have a range of gift sets withy our favourite being the Vegan Gift Set which includes ZERO plastic. It’s a perfect little sustainable starter pack, it has a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste tabs, vegan soap and deodorant. Perfect for the fledgling vegan in your life!

Vegan runners
