Manchester plant-based cafe launches vegan hampers for Christmas

From pamper hampers to festive feasts, Manchester’s plant-based eatery Vertigo has launched a new website selling vegan Christmas hampers

We’ve seen bars and restaurants across the city adapting to a new way of living recently, and Manchester’s Vertigo is no different.

Though they might not be able to welcome customers through their doors with the current restrictions in place, they’re offering their customers the chance to gift vegan goodies instead this festive season.

With a total of five different hampers available, it’s the perfect cruelty free gift this Christmas. 

The hampers come in a range of sizes, and Vertigo’s small festive hamper is perfect for those who might live alone. 

Including cute gingerbread men, Mrs Darlington’s cranberry sauce and an alcohol-free festive punch, this hamper is the pinnacle of Christmas, packaged up and ready to go.

If you’ve got a plant-based family or group of friends to buy for, the large festive hamper is the perfect fit. 

As well as containing everything the small hamper does, there’s the addition of cinnamon and orange soap, locally-sourced ManCoCo winter blend coffee and frankincense incense sticks, too.

And the Vertigo Italian hamper is perfect for foodies. 

Again, packaged beautifully in a wicker basket, the Italian hamper comes stocked enough to provide a full Italian feast. 

Including truffle oil, organic green pesto and pappardelle pasta, there’s an option to add a bottle of Natural Chianti wine to top it all off.

Meanwhile, for those who deserve a good pampering, Vertigo’s pamper hamper is just the ticket. 

Filled with 100% eco-friendly and cruelty free products, this hamper contains an elderflower and clementine lip balm, cinnamon and orange soap, coconut and argan oil shampoo, lavender and geranium hand wash, frankincense incense sticks and a back and body brush. 

So whether you’re sending a hamper as a gift, or treating yourself and your loved ones this Christmas, Vertigo will deliver hampers all over the UK and Europe with a handwritten gift note if you so please. 

And if you’re missing Vertigo’s delicious plant-based food, both their Cross Street and Media City branches are offering a selection of their menu for delivery. 

Whether it’s their supergreen mac and cheeze with toasted pine nuts or the jackfruit and black bean chilli, with guacamole, rice, and tortillas, Vertigo’s tasty treats can be ordered via Deliveroo.

Hampers are very limited in availability and can be purchased online – click the button below to find out more. Priced from just £28.50 each, hampers can also be collected from either the Cross Street or MediaCityUK restaurants between 14th and 20th December.
