We hope you liked the first instalment of our compassionate gift guide. (If you missed it, click here!) This second part focuses on vegan FOOD that you can give as gifts or bring to a party. (Don’t be remembered as the one who didn’t bring anything! :P)
We present a mix of vegan-friendly food, with a focus once again on #supportlocal and stuff that are easily accessible in Singapore! Some of these amazing foods are brought to you by our own AASG friends, so please support them and spread the vegan food love!
Vice Vegan-Friendly Ice Cream
This author believes that Vice will rid the world of non-vegan ice cream one pint at a time. It tastes exactly like non-vegan ice cream, or even better! Why choose non-vegan ice creams when you can have Vice, which is healthier and kinder?
Vice offers amazing ice cream flavours that change every month. This December, we have been blessed with Rocky Road, Cranberry (which comes with chunks of vegan cheese cake!), Rum & Raisin, Peppermint (with chocolate shavings) and Gingerbread! Tell me you are not drooling just yet. This author can personally testify that the flavours can be alarming and cause never-before-experienced sensations, which may cause you to finish the entire pint of ice cream alone. (SOGOOD) You have been warned.
As a Christmas special, Vice is also offering baked vegan cheese cake!
You can get Vice ice creams through their instagram account @veganvice_sg or through facebook at www.facebook.com/VeganVICEsg/

Genesis Restaurant’s Vegan Turkey
The established Genesis Vegan Restaurant is offering vegan turkey this Christmas season. Turkey has always been a food symbol for Thanksgiving and Christmas, but perhaps we should switch things up by saving the lives of these intelligent beings and try vegan turkey instead!
Genesis’ vegan turkey costs S$35 per length.

Bakening Bakery Vegan-Friendly Paleo Cookies

(Note: Not all of Bakening’s products are vegan-friendly, please check before purchasing.)
If you want to give something healthy, vegan and pretty, one can do no wrong with fruits.
To make it special, you could consider getting types of fruits that the recipient normally would not get for themselves, e.g. a bag of cherries, a box of perfect strawberries, japanese fruits, exotic not-so-often seen fruits, organic fruits, etc. Decent packaging will be preferred – sometimes fruits come in less than attractive packaging and perhaps using a stiff brown paper bag or even a reusable grocery bag would do the trick! This is perfect for the health-conscious gift recipient.
