23 Vegan Valentine's Day Gift Ideas For The Compassionate Cutie In Your Life

Ad failed to load

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.

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).

A Trip To A Sanctuary

Farm Sanctuary Valentines Day tickets, $20/each

My partner took me to Catskill Animal Sanctuary for my birthday a few years ago to stay overnight and visit, and it was actually quite romantic! Even if you don't have a sanctuary nearby with overnight facilities, places like Farm Sanctuary will be holding special Valentine's Day weekend events.

A Bottle Of Vegan Prosecco

Santa Margherita Prosecco, $18 Wine.com

Did you know not all wine is vegan? I know, it sucks. It has to do with the filtration process. At least you can know you're safe with Santa Margherita's vegan Prosecco, which will pair quite nicely with the romantic vegan Valentine's Day dinner you cook up.

A Pain-Free Meditation Cushion

The Undo Meditation Cushion, $150, Undo

While I'm a big proponent of the idea that you don't have to sit to meditate, if I had a cushion that made my alignment better, I think I would be more motivated to sit.
