Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts!
I had a lot of ideas for recipe posts for Valentine’s. Then, I thought “why not share some gift ideas?” That way, you know, you can pass along the not-so-subtle hint. Or hey, just buy yourself the treat! (I already gifted myself a ScanPan, read on)…
Valentine’s Day Gifts under $50
Vegan Bath Bombs: Do you love a good hot bath? I do. So, so much. Every day I find some time, even 10 minutes, to have a hot soak. Most often I use epsom salts with eucalyptus or wintergreen essential oil (I love it). Occasionally I’ll use a bath bomb, or break off a piece of one from my daughter’s stash (shhhh)! 🙂 They do feel luxurious, and I think they’re fabulous vegan Valentine’s day gifts.
Lavender & Vanilla Natural Soy Candles: You’ve got the bath running, why not light a candle? These two scents are magical for me. Maybe I’m dropping a hint, hah.
Vegan Chocolates: We’ve got the bath bombs, candles… we need some chocolate! I found these Amore Di Mona vegan valentine’s chocolate box on amazon, I want them myself! These Gourmet Chocolate Truffles also look good. For some other vegan chocolate options (and Canadian shipping), check out this post.
Epicurean Cutting Board: I’ve had one of these cutting boards for years. Years. I have two, and mostly use the smaller one. It’s the nutmeg color, about 9 x 11 in size (I don’t know if they sell that exact size now, but they do have 13.5 x 9). I use this smaller one every day, at least twice a day. It’s handy and fits in the dishwasher nicely. I bought mine at a local kitchen shop, but here’s the amazon link.
What I love about this board: not only is it eco-friendly, BPA-free, and dishwasher-safe, it doesn’t hold smells like onion and garlic. Smaller boards are in the $20-$30 range, larger boards over $40.
Coconut Bowls and Spoons: I don’t have these bowls, but gosh they are adorable! I think they are especially unique vegan valentine’s day gfits for IG foodies! Made from reclaimed coconut shells, no two bowls are alike. Organic, vegan, eco-friendly. Image via amazon.
Golden Milk Powder I’ve posted about how much I love making green tea lattes at home. Well, in the last month I’ve been taking to making my own golden milk. Sometimes I make it myself with turmeric, black pepper, and cinnamon. But I recently bought this Botanica golden mylk to try out. I don’t know how it compares to other brands, but it’s nice.
My only issue is that it settles somewhat, so I’d love to find a brand that doesn’t settle after mixing (any recommendations)? I’d also love to try this GOLD milk, though it’s eeep a bit pricey. Maybe you’re really getting what you’re paying for with this one? Don’t you think pairing some golden milk with a candle and chocolate makes a lovely Valentine’s gift?
Pacifica Perfumes: Pacifica has a broad line of vegan products, and their perfumes (and candles) are available in most natural foods stores. The roll-on perfumes are about $15, and easily pop into a purse. Our teen daughters love them! They make a sweet gift for teens or young women. Experiment with the fragrances to find your favorites. Our girls like the island vanilla (me too!) and coconut nectar. They have a light, sweet aroma. I’ve also bought the lilac for my mother. She lives in Newfoundland and adores the smell of lilacs. Pacifica has the same scents in candles and lotions!
Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts $50+
I’ve wanted one for a while, but held back because they are a little more expensive than other brands I’ve bought. There was a hot deal in January, so I nabbed one! I got the 121/2″ size, as seen here. I always prefer a larger surface. Unless you are cooking for just 1 or 2, I think a larger pan is more purposeful. I purchased mine direct from ScanPan (sign up for newsletter for deals!) but here are some options on US amazon and amazon Canada. Yeah, this one is a splurge in terms of the other vegan Valentine’s day gifts, but well worth it.
Breville Smart Oven: This is another higher-priced item, but well worth the investment for home cooks. I talked about my Breville Smart Oven Pro before.
Much like how many people love their Instant Pots, I love my Smart Oven Pro. I use it at least 4-5 times a day, to make breakfasts, lunches, reheat leftovers, cook small batches of food, roast vegetables, and more. It heats up more quickly than your oven, and uses less power. It’s definitely one of my kitchen ‘essentials’, and if you cook often, it might be yours too. Now, there’s a oven air model which also offers an air fry function.
What do you love to give and receive for Valentine’s Day?
