Some vegans love the taste of bacon, too, of course—we just prefer ours without the flayed pig stomach. So if your holiday shopping list includes a “bacon person,” give your cholesterol kingpin what he or she really wants. Here’s everything you need to put together a gift basket that will make your bacon fanatic—and animals—happy.
Start with the essentials: cruelty-free bacon and bacon-flavored foods to get your friend or family member off to a healthier and more compassionate start in the new year. Try a handful of these:
Then fill out your basket with some of these cruelty-free gifts for the bacon-obsessed:
Fake Meats Flexible Cutting Board that hints, “Fake Meats Only”
Accoutrements Mr. Bacon Christmas Ornament, a subtle reminder that animal-derived bacon once had a face.
Accoutrements Mr. Bacon vs. Monsieur Tofu Action Figure Set, because kindness always wins.
Bacon-colored vegan cosmetics, such as Pacifica 7 Free Nail Polish in Red Red Wine
PETA’s Viva Las Vegans Lip Balm, featuring a cute pig
It’s a sweet message that everyone can agree with: Animals deserve to be treated with kindness. And that’s a great vegan seed to plant.
(Maybe keep a free vegan starter kit on hand just in case.)
