In these times it is more important than ever to celebrate love and compassion. So on Valentine’s Day this year, go full throttle, show your special someone how much they mean to you. Below are some vegan ideas to get you started.
Spending time alone in the oasis of the bathroom, listening to music, or a podcast, and soaking in a fizzy tub is a worth while investment in stress reduction. If the person you love has a job they hate, has been upset about the news, or feeling tense for any other reason under the sun, a beautiful spa set might be the right gift to trigger them into some overdue self-care.

These cards are everything. Upon seeing #4, I immediately decided that if I had kids I would create a Vegan Unicorn character to bring them baskets of vegan goodies every year. Just think of all of the fun lore you could imagine up.

I know. You and your partner already have a cupboard full of mugs. In fact, you planned to purge at least half of them in January when you were obsessively watching minimalism videos and determined to Kon-Mari your whole apartment. But surely one of these vegan-centric mugs can replace what is already there. Just think of your loved one pouring coffee and almond milk into one of these.

Giving chocolates may sound cliche, but these options are anything but. When was the last time you saw a box of vegan white chocolates?
All of the options in the photo above are beautiful but it’s likely that #4 has stood out to you. Here’s what Hudson Valley vegan chocolatier Lagusta’s Luscious has to say about their creation, “there is an awful lot of penis-shaped chocolate out there, and we here at Lagusta’s Luscious feel it is our duty to do something to correct that imbalance. Furthermore, in ancient Mesoamerica where cacao came from, cacao pods were a symbol of female deities.”

There are a surprising amount of vegan Champagnes, and sparkling wines, out there! Thankfully we vegans have, the essential vegan survival website, Barnivore to guide us while stand awkwardly in the liquor store.

LUSH BATH BOMBS
Wait. We already did spa sets. Yes we did, but Lush bath bombs are their own category.
Keep in mind that only 80% of their products are vegan. So be sure to look for the vegan symbol before adding to your cart.

If you follow me on Instagram, and you really should (follow here), you saw that, for my birthday, my husband got me a Sirabella’s cheesecake.
Believe the hype! This cheesecake is the closest vegan option to a traditional NY-style cheesecake. The Sirabella’s team must be employing alchemists. Every bite of dense-creamy-silky cheesecake and thick-moist graham cracker crust is a plunge further into foodgasm.
The fastest way to a vegan’s heart is with gourmet vegan cheese. There are many brands out there but two soft cheeses that we all tend to drool over are Miyoko’s Kitchen and Treeline Cheese. They’ll look beautiful on the marble and wood cheeseboard you got at Christmas. If you’re planning for a romantic night in, vegan cheese should be your appetizer.

SWEET SPOT MINIS

Mainstream perfume is tested by pouring it into the eyes of animals. They are also made of animals and are filled with toxins. These options scream I love you enough to save animals.

Mainstream lingerie is often made with silk, which obviously isn’t vegan. The options in the pics above are all free of animals.
