With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, it is understandable why thoughts here at Veenofs have turned to love. Issues of sustainability and ethicality are very close to our hearts, and we think that nothing is more romantic than showing appreciation for not just the ones you love, but also those who make the products we purchase. By shopping from vegan companies such as Veenofs, you are showing how much you care about ethical working conditions and sustainably made products. Anyone would appreciate a gift with so much thought behind it. To give you some ideas, we have compiled a collection of our favourite items which we think would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.
We think that this bracelet would make a perfect gift as it is just so stylish. Manufactured in Sweden, the strap is made from sustainable Portuguese cork and comes in shades of brown, green or red, as well as unpainted for a more natural look. For an extra bonus, the bracelet comes in an Italian-made pouch; perfect for safekeeping.
Stick with us on this one. The perfect size for carrying around a laptop, groceries, or clothes, this bag is an essential item for anyone. Additionally, this tote bag is made from recycled plastic bottles and recycled organic cotton; making it a highly sustainable choice. Whilst it is not an obvious Valentine’s Day present, think about all the gifts you could put inside it! Homemade chocolate treats, a few books, maybe a bracelet or two – the only limit is your imagination!
Carrying on the bag theme because who does not love a good bag? Practical and beautiful, this bucket bag from Marina Milani is an exceptional Valentine’s gift. It is handmade in Italy using untreated natural cork and natural organic cotton, and as a little bonus, the bag’s attractive flower pattern does not repeat. This means that every bag is entirely unique! We think that it is just wonderful.
Okay, this one is for those with a sense of humour – or good taste, at least. Everyone knows that all the best things come in threes. The Supremes, The Bee Gees, Alvin and the Chipmunks… Maybe not that last one, but sex, hummus and veggie rolls has to be a classic trio. Available as a t-shirt in purple and black, blue and grey, or as a vest top in black or white, there is a colour and style for everyone. This comic t-shirt becomes even better when you realise that it is made from 70% bamboo and 30% organic cotton. 100% vegan, 100% win.
Just as sexy as veggie rolls, we are totally in love with this classic watch. Its sleek black design is bold, daring, and definitely eye-catching. The strap is made from vegan leather – polyurethane, to be precise – so it will not weigh down your beloved’s wrist at all.
You can pretend that you are buying this as a Valentine’s gift for your partner, but it is for you really. We will not blame you for wanting to steal it. Made from 84% organic cotton, this hoodie is cosy and ethical. Did we mention how stylish it is, too? The striking design was designed by Wojciech Kołacz; a famous muralist better known by the alias Otecki, and belongs to part of a limited edition collection for Slogan Street View. Better snap it up quick before it is gone!
We hope that has given you a few gift ideas for Valentine’s Day; if not just for your own personal wish-list. After all, Valentine’s Day works both ways, right?
