Call us cheesy, but we love any excuse to celebrate a day of sweet treats and love - be it romantic, friendship love, or that oh-so-important self-love.
If you're looking for a vegan Valentine’s Day (or Galentine's Day) gift for a loved one or to treat yourself with a little TLC, we've got you covered!
Valentine's Day treats aren't just the milk chocolate heart candies, conversation hearts, or other typically non-vegan friendly candies and chocolate of yesteryear. It's 2023! And there are so many creative and totally plant-based and cruelty free ways to say, “I love you,” like these 11 vegan valentines day gifts we’re crushing on.
The cherry on top: you can pick up any of these vegan Valentine's day gifts from the comfort of your own couch - all guaranteed to make your loved one's (or your own!) day.
How We Chose These Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts
Can we get a little commotion for amazing small brands? It’s true; we’re in a committed love affair with small brands, and we think you should be too! Any holiday is a great opportunity to support small, ethically-made, locally owned brands whenever possible. Each purchase is like sending the sweetest valentine to that small business owner – trust us!
When shopping for your loved one, whether you’re scooping up self-care products, chocolate or sweet treats, or jewelry (we’ve got recommendations for each), whenever possible, shop small, shop woman-owned, shop BIPOC-owned, and send some love to small business owners with your dollars.

A wise man once said life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get. In this case though, you know exactly what you’re signing up for; the most delicious, can’t-believe-this-is-vegan assortment of box of chocolates (we like this “melt my heart” dark chocolate melty truffles box) from one of our favorite non-dairy chocolatiers. Add to cart for sure – and maybe get a second one for yourself.
9. Golde Turmeric Latte Powder
We’re obsessed with this plant-based turmeric latte powder that makes each morning feel a little luxe and special (it’s also great as a wind-down comforting drink before bed.) This rivals any pricy coffee shop drink, and is vegan plus packed with powerhouse superfoods.
10. A Box of Cupcakes by Baked by Melissa
You might know Melissa of Baked by Melissa from her recent TikTok fame, but she's been a longtime favorite in the baked goods world and creates the most delicious treats like cupcakes, macarons, and these vegan cupcakes.
