Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts to Express Your Plant-Based Love
This is pretty cheesy of me, but I’m just going to say it: I really feel that being vegan is like celebrating Valentine’s Day every day. Both Valentine’s Day and veganism are reminders to love and appreciate those around you. Being vegan is a daily expression of love and compassion, a reminder that kindness is limitless. By being vegan, we show we care about all beings, even if we never get the chance to meet them. It’s a beautiful thing. So in this spirit, why not get the special someone in your life a little vegan Valentine’s Day gift?
Whether you’re shopping for your significant other, your best friend, or your companion animal, this list has you covered. Even better, several items in this gift guide can be purchased through Mercy For Animals’ online store, which means the proceeds from your gift will go directly to saving animals. Now that’s a sweet present!
Happy Valentine’s Day from MFA to you!
Buy your Valentine’s Day cards from Mercy For Animals and you’ll help spread the message of love in more ways than one.

So maybe foot cream seems like a bizarre Valentine’s Day gift, but I think it would be very sweet paired with the promise of a foot massage (or seven!). Lavido makes awesome vegan products that deliver incredible moisture, minus any artificial ingredients.
