What to do with non vegan gifts
How do you handle the situation when someone gives you a non-vegan gift. This past Christmas, I received gifts of meat, cheese, non-vegan wines, chocolates and soaps.
I accepted graciously and said a kind thank you. I felt it would have been rude to say "Sorry I am vegan and cannot have these". Some of the gifts came from unknowing customers, but some came from family and friends that know I am vegan, but may have been unaware that the wine, chocolate and soap contained animal products.
What do you do in this situation? I passed these along to my omni family members, so they did not go to waste.
