While a lot of people like to hate on it as a holiday, personally, I'm a fan of
what Valentine's Day can stand for — mainly, love and appreciation. To me, being vegan isn't just about saving animals — it's also about an overall philosophy of non-harm, kindness, and love towards all living beings and the environment. If you believe the same, then you're going to want to make sure any vegan Valentine's Day gift you get the special veg in your life is on-point.
Below, I've tried to include lots of different romantic, ethical, and funny
vegan Valentine's Day gift ideas for all price points — as well as more than a few gifts that go beyond just benefiting the recipient. Whether you decide to visit a sanctuary for Valentine's Day, sponsor an animal, or buy some vegan bling, there's something on this list for just about every type of sexy vegan. (And yes, we are sexy. The rumors are true.)
Personally, I'll be celebrating by going to
Farm Sanctuary's Valentine's Day celebration in Acton, California — and then heading home to a delicious vegan Valentine's Day dinner. (Oh yeah, I've got you covered with those vegan Valentine's Day recipie ideas, too.) Happy loving! A LOVE GOODLY Box Subscription LoveGoodly Box, $29.95/bi-monthly
There's still time to get the Feb/Mar Box, which costs only $29.95, but has a retail value of over $86. If you really want to go above and beyond, get them an annual subscription to this expertly and ethically-curated vegan beauty box. They'll think of you every time they open it (plus, it's a statement you plan to be around for at least a year).
