Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so I have compiled a list of must haves to help you through this sweet romance of a day!
First and foremost…Flowers! I don’t know of any girl that doesn’t get all giddy over flowers being delivered to work or her home…we love flowers! My hub even loves to get flowers! So this year, send some that are free of garbage and from a farm that isn’t busy polluting the earth. Roses are always popular for Valentine’s Day…but try something new like this amazing red anemone bouquet from California Organic Flowers.
Sweet Treats for your Sweetie! I know I love chocolate…and even better when they’re pretty and wrapped and from my love! So this year, instead of getting a box of dairy laden – preservative filled – high fructose corn syrup nonsense…opt for these Raw Cacao Confections… The Sweetheart Chocolate Box is on Vegan Cuts right now! If you’re not familiar with Vegan Cuts, then get familiar! … it will be your new best friend for finding new tasty treats and cruelty free treasures.:)
Cookie Dough Truffles?!?! You must think I’m crazy…but I’m not! I love cookie dough, it’s hard to imagine it getting any better…but to dip it in yummy vegan chocolate?…it’s too good to be true! Beside these amazing Vegan Cookie Dough Truffles being vegan, they are made with organic ingredients…so you can give yourself an even bigger pat on the back and indulge in a few more. Find these, among other tasty treats at The Flour Garden on Etsy.
Delicate baubles with love…;)… Yes please! There is nothing more special than a symbol of ones love. This necklace, with all of it’s amazingness, will be adored by that special someone…I mean, just look at how cool it is! Did I mention it’s recycled and fair trade? I kinda want to buy loads of them to give as gifts to every girl I know! This Recycled Fair Trade Heart Necklace is handmade by artisans in Northern India.:)
Diamonds are a girls best friend…after all… But who could possibly like the conflict that typically comes with these dazzling gems? Now you can get ethically sourced diamonds for your love.:) I know my eyes would be wide with glee if I found these little conflict free diamond earrings come the big V-Day! Sapphire’s more your thing? Brilliant Earth has an array of ethical gems no matter your choice sparkle.
A romantic candle lit dinner for two. I don’t know too many places to find a romantic vegan meal out..so I usually create the perfect meal with love right at home. I found this amazing idea for “Hearty” Ravioli and fell in love with this idea! I mean, what could set the stage for a lovely romantic dinner than this?! Serve with some bruschetta and kale salad from an earlier post, and select a vegan wine from The Organic Wine Company
Strawberries and Chocolate are so HOT! Every Valentine’s Dinner MUST end with something deliciously sweet and this couldn’t be more perfect! Seriously…wether you like to nibble and savor every bite, or straight up devour your dessert…you will have one happy tummy with titillated senses. Chocolate-Strawberry Truffle Pie from Chocolate Covered Katie is made with wholesome ingredients too…so you can have your pie and eat it too…without all the guilt!
Dim the lights and have a warm bath… If relaxation is part of your plan for V-Day, then you for sure need some of these amazing Gourmet Bath Truffles in Rose from Sugar and Spice Soaps. Made with unrefined and fair trade cocoa and shea butters…these will leave your skin silky smooth and full of moisture. Make sure to request these with the vegetable derived foaming agent to insure it’s vegan-ness.:)
I hope you have the most perfect Valentine’s Day full of love and romance!
