Best Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts


Valentine’s Day is soon, and I have some of the best vegan valentine’s day gifts for you!

Maybe you’d like something other than flowers, or the standard dark chocolate bar for your vegan valentine’s day. Perhaps you’d like something unique, yet tested ‘n tried so you can count on it.

These are some of my very favorite products to make the best Valentine’s Day gifts.

And, if you don’t want to wait for someone to gift you, or you aren’t in a luvvy relationship right now, go ahead and pick out a little something for yourself. You deserve it. You especially deserve chocolate, so let’s start there. 😉

5 Best Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts

  1. Nibble Truffles: I shared these in my Christmas post, and have to share again – because these truly kick off the best vegan Valentine’s Day gifts! I ordered several boxes for the holidays, and they were divine. They are a reasonable price, and you can use this Nibble Chocolate Coupon Code DREENABURTON at checkout for 10% off your order!

2. Purity Woods Skincare: I started using this skincare in November, and love it. Not just the quality and pure ingredients – but the EASE of use. You don’t need a line up of products! Just 2-3 essentials and you’re set (I love the retinol night cream, below). Note that not all products are vegan, some have cera alba. I’ve been in discussions with them to elevate their product status to being exclusively vegan. Purity Woods is also endorsed by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.

FAQ: Dreena, I thought you used OCosmedics?

As some of you know, I used OCosmedics from AusBeauty for a few years. In my newsletter I promised to explain why I’m no longer promoting OCosmedics, because I did love using the products. I start with saying that I’ve learned some things about my work relationships this past year. What I learned?

I am led too often by my heart and not my head. I’ve operated from a place of wanting to help people and do good, rather than approach from a business perspective. I still think it’s good and right to do what’s good and right. But in the future, I will step back and consider from my head as well as my heart. As an HSP, that isn’t easy to do. One of my new year’s commitments is to hold value for my offerings, my work commitment, and my talents. Also to hold value for my community, which I have cultivated with 25 years of dedicated, hard work. When I work with companies in the future, it won’t be ‘for product’. There are real costs and time invested in every post.

With OCosmedics, I received product. Truly, I was happy to promote the line as I loved the products, but also because the connection developed into a friendship. In the fall (and coincidentally at the same time I was learning about Purity Woods) OCosmedics notified me that they couldn’t continue to provide product. It was surprising, and it set me back. I was sad for a few weeks, because it was more than business. When you lead with your heart, it affects your heart. So it was time to lead with my head.

As I mentioned, this was precisely the same time I had received information about Purity Woods. I had already heard about maple leaf extract (even contacted OCosmedics about it two years ago). So I was very interested to try it out.

After using the Purity Woods for a couple of months I’m very happy.
What I love:
– the price point is reasonable for everyone
– the skincare line is simple with just a handful of products
– ingredients are excellent (organic and no chemicals)
– their age defying night cream is beautiful
What I don’t love:
– they send a ridiculous amount of emails and upsell (I’ve asked them to taper, as it detracts from the quality of the product)
– not all of their products are fully vegan (nor were AusBeauty)… I’ve asked them to revisit their formulations, and ask you to reach out to them to do the same. The products that aren’t fully vegan have cera alba.

For now I’m continuing with Purity Woods as an affiliate, and continuing to nudge them about reformulation of the couple of products with cera alba. Disclosure: as an affiliate, earn a percentage from referred sales (at no extra cost to you). Thank you for helping to support my work through any of my affiliate work. I don’t affiliate with many brands. The ones I refer are ones I use and love myself. These include Bellicon, Vitamix, Wilderness Poets, Nibble Chocolate, Purity Woods, and lululemon (ohhhh I do love my lulu). 🙃

I share this with you today to be upfront and also to express that if you are still using OCosmedics and love it – please still love it. I don’t go back on saying that it’s a beautiful product.

3. Wilderness Poets: Here’s a healthier, easier, but still very festive Valentine’s Day treat. Pick up some DragonFruit Powder to make these Chocolate Dipped Apples!

All Wilderness Poets products are of exceptional quality, so browse through their products to try out some other items. And, be sure to use Wilderness Poets Coupon Code DREENA10 for 10% off at checkout.

4. Pacifica Tinted Lip Balm: I love these, I’m not an affiliate but the links here are amazon affiliate links. These lip balms are vegan, cruelty-free, and very affordable. I always have one in my purse, my fave color is the guava berry, it gives just a perk of color for me. But many are beautiful and natural shades. They aren’t goopy, and moisturize your lips while giving a touch of color.

5. SOOM Tahini: A new discovery for me, this salted chocolate tahini is just decadently delicious. I’m not an affiliate, and I buy it at Whole Foods in the US. You can find it here on amazon. (In Canada, it’s ridiculously priced on amazon). More in this video!

I hope these ideas give you some inspiration. If you are in the baking mood, try my NEW oil-free lava cakes or my VEGAN TURTLES for Valentine’s! 👇😍 x Dreena
