Oh Valentine’s Day, loved by many…dreaded by many. Although some may call it just another Hallmark holiday, you can’t deny that it is nice to show a little extra love to the special people in your life. Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be for lovers; treat your mom, dad, bestie or whomever that special person in your life may be, to one of these thoughtful gifts that will be sure to brighten their day.
♥Be My Valentino Truffles
Satisfy a sweet tooth while helping animals in need. Lovingly named after one of the Farm Sanctuary’s rescued steers, Valentino, the profits made from the “Be My Valentino Truffles” will help fund their efforts to provide a beautiful, cruel-free life to their rescued animals. These delectable chocolates are 100% vegan, free of dairy and eggs, as well as gluten, peanuts and tee-nuts. Hold your salivary glands, the flavors are…“Milk” Fudge, Raspberry, Salted Caramel, Grand Marnier and Coffee.

♥“What I Love About…” Books
These sweet, fill-in-the-blank books are sure to tug at the heartstrings. They are not only for your significant other but they also have ones for your mom, dad, best friend and just any, generally awesome people in your life. I love these books because although they are inexpensive, what is written inside could mean more to the recipient than any lavish gift. Words are a powerful thing, especially those that come from a loved one.

♥Vegan Cooking Class
What could be better for your favorite foodie in your life than treating them to a cooking class together? It could be a great bonding experience, for both vegan and non-vegans alike, to expand their culinary horizons all while having fun and getting to enjoy the best part of cooking…eating! To find locations, simply Google (gotta love Google) “vegan cooking classes in ( insert your city here)." If you are in a location where vegan cooking classes aren’t so prevalent, host a DIY cooking class in your own home, recreating a meal from your favorite cookbook (see some suggestions below) or YouTube video!

♥A Little R&R
We live in a hectic world, constantly on the go, moving from one place to the next, leaving little to no time for ourselves. Encourage your loved one to sit back, relax and indulge in much-needed "me" time, or rather, "them" time, with the help of natural bath bombs from Enfusia. These bath bombs are a combination of skin softening ingredients and moisturizing massage oils, creating a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home. Some of the scents included in the package are Lavender, Muscle Bomb, Casablanca Rose and Cocomo.
