8 Stunning Valentine’s Day Hair And Nails Ideas For A Romantic Look

With

Valentine’s Day fast approaching, you may well be on the hunt for something special for the lady in your life. But what if she’s vegan? You might think that the only label you’d need to check pre-purchase would be on a box of chocolates, but don’t be fooled.

There are actually all sorts of romantic gifts that can be problematic to vegans-from cosmetics (which contain things like collagen and honey) to alcohol (which may use animal products such as gelatine) and even lingerie (many vegans avoid silk since silkworms are used to make it).

With this in mind, we’ve compiled a shopping list full of vegan friendly Valentines goodies. Whether you’re on a budget or wanting to splash out, we’ve got you covered. Here are 15 of the best valentines gifts for the vegan in your life...

Booja Booja Dairy Free Champagne Chocolate Truffles Artist's Collection 185g

Nothing says Valentine’s Day like chocolates so if you’re going to splash out, you might as well make sure they’re the best of the best. Booja Booja has gained cult status amongst vegans and those on a dairy-free diet, since their chocolates taste so creamy and indulgent; managing to avoid the chemical aftertaste that sometimes comes with dairy-free chocolate.

Presented in a beautiful gift box (hand-painted by artists in India), these organic Champagne truffles are also handmade by a small team in Norfolk. 16 truffles for £21 might seem pricey, but they’re all so decadent that a truffle or two at a time is more than enough, meaning this box should last a few weeks at least. Not only are they the perfect present, they don’t require any hassle either: you can purchase them online at Ocado, alongside your weekly shop.

Self Care Co Rose and Bergamot Candle

These natural soy candles avoid animal products (such as beeswax, which is often used in premium candles) and instead use 100 per cent natural soy wax and therapeutic grade oils. Our candle arrived gift boxed with a fresh white rose but they also offers the option of a handwritten, personalised note for extra brownie points. The rose and bergamot jar is a stylish addition to any room- we loved the simplicity of its design; meaning it doesn’t clash with any decor.

Each candle has a burn time of around 60-80 hours and offers the perfect way to de-stress. A thoughtful and beautiful gift for someone who needs a bit of relaxation.

The result is a luxurious garment that is extremely flattering and avoids the scratchy, synthetic feel that mass produced underwear can sometimes bring. These gorgeous yet comfortable pieces will make the lady in your life look and feel beautiful.

Story 81 Milan Mini Satchel

Truly beautiful vegan bags are hard to find, so this mini satchel is the perfect present for the fashionista in your life. Story 81 was set up when its founder struggled to find non-leather bags that were also contemporary and stylish so she decided to make her own. This mini satchel is ideal for date nights, and has an identical look, feel (and even smell) to leather –  both vegans and non-vegans alike would be delighted to wear this on their arm.

The Pink and Rose Gold Votch

Should you want to splurge on a piece of jewellery, a vegan votch is a timeless, classic piece that any fashion savvy vegan would be thrilled to own. Using faux leather straps made from a materials such as cotton and polyester, the watches are completely cruelty free and vegan. The Votch comes in a variety of colours but we think the pink and rose gold version is just perfect for Valentine’s Day. Not only is the watch a great vegan purchase but you’ll pleased to know that each month the company also partners with different animal charities and donates 10 per cent of their profits to these causes.

Vegan Marshmallow Toasting Kit

This vegan marshmallow toasting kit is the perfect addition to romantic nights curled up in front of the television. Most marshmallows are out of the question for vegans, since they contain gelatin, but this toasting kit comes complete with two boxes of vegan marshmallow and a non-toxic mini toaster which burns for two hours.

We love how personalised this option is too. You can select your partner’s favourite flavours and even have their name printed on the burner itself.

Aldi Organic Prosecco

When you’re looking for a quick and cost-effective present, you can’t go wrong with a bit of fizz.

This prosecco is vegan, eco-friendly and organic (meaning it’s free from pesticides). We loved the subtle fizz of this very drinkable bottle and, since it’s organic, we felt surprisingly hangover free the next day.

The best part? It only costs £7.99 from Aldi (an unlikely place for valentine’s gifts we’ll admit!). It looks and tastes way more expensive, so grab yourself a bargain. Just make sure you keep the receipt hidden…
