Now that we have the gifts covered, let’s talk about other ways we can help make the holidays even happier with these vegan Christmas hacks...
Chocolates! Everyone loves chocolate at Christmas don’t they? Big tins adorn the coffee table of pretty much every house and chocolate decorations twinkle temptingly from Christmas tree branches. If you’re looking for vegan chocolate treats, there are some wonderful, sumptuous choccie delights out there.
For treating someone special, Booja Booja Champagne Truffles are dairy free and vegan and the boozy mouthfuls are the perfect way to end (or start) Christmas day. Hotel Chocolat have a whole range of vegan chocolates as well and, if you’re on a tighter budget or are just looking to fill a gap in a stocking, many supermarkets have some great “accidentally vegan” options especially in their own branded ranges.
Party food is something that need not be a headache either, and there are some good finger food options to offer your guests. Marks and Spencer sell some rather marvelous and very festive-looking spring rolls, while Linda McCartney is arguably the best brand for sausage rolls.
If you’re looking for something a little more personal and homemade, there are tonnes of recipes for delicious and easy dinners. Sadly, a purely vegan Christmas cookbook doesn’t exist (yet), but Jamie Oliver and The Minimalist Baker have a plethora of easy recipes to tantalise and tempt, not just the herbivores around the table. And firm favourite The Vegan Society have put together a handy top ten here.
Making the festive season vegan can be really easy and options definitely need not be boring. Who needs a nut roast anyway?
