Sweet Nothings without the Dairy

Valentine's Day is all about spreading love, and for ethical and environmentally conscious couples, that extends to showing compassion for the planet and its creatures. Veganism isn't just a dietary choice; it's a way of life about minimising harm and embracing kindness. So, this Valentine's Day, why not ditch the conventional chocolates and flowers and opt for thoughtful, cruelty-free gifts that speak to your shared values? For some sweet, wonderfully tasty ideas, have a look at our suggested vegan Valentine’s day gifts below.

Beyond the Box: Vegan Gifts that Warm the Soul

While chocolate is always a winner, there are also plenty of non-edible vegan gifts that will make your Valentine feel loved and appreciated. Here are two ideas to get you started:

  • A Cosy Night In: Set the mood with a luxurious vegan blanket made from recycled materials. Light some soy or beeswax candles for a warm glow, and snuggle up with a good book or watch a movie marathon. Add a personalized playlist of love songs and some home-made vegan popcorn for the ultimate romantic evening in. Does he or she need some new clothing? Check out the ever growing ranges to be found where the byword is planet friendly plant based materials. Nice new shirt! Nice new vegan Valentine’s day gift to wear!

  • Plant a Tree of Love:

    Show your love for the planet and each other by planting a tree together. Choose a species that has special meaning for you, or simply pick one that will thrive in your local climate. As the tree grows, it will serve as a constant reminder of your love and commitment to a greener future. A perfect tree to signify ongoing love is a beautiful spring flowering Cherry and there's loads to choose from. If you have a huge love for your other half maybe a Redwood?


Remember, the most important ingredient in any Valentine's Day gift is love.

Whether you choose chocolates, cosy blankets, or a sapling to plant together, make sure your gift comes from the heart and reflects the values you share as a couple. With a little creativity and thoughtfulness, you can show your loved one just how much you care in a way that's kind to both animals and the planet.

Bonus Tip: Pair your KAKOA chocolates with a vegan bottle of bubbly or a bouquet of locally-grown flowers for an extra special touch. Remember, presentation is key!

Happy Valentine's Day, and may your love story be as sweet and sustainable as a KAKOA chocolate!
