Valentine’s Day is a week away – Eeek! Here are some ideas if you’re still looking for something to get your loved ones:
Mixing Bowl Bakery:
Looking for something sweet? The Mixing Bowl Bakery can hook you up with vegan truffles, cupcakes, cookies and more! Orders must be placed by February 10th and 10% of profits go to Mercy for Animals.
Vegan Cuts is currently offering a great deal on vegan truffles, but if your sweetie isn’t a fan of sweets or you’ve had your heart stolen by a four-legged cuddle monkey, like this girl, they’re offering plenty of discount codes to some great companies.
As always, if you’re looking for quality chocolate that’s vegan and helps save lives check out the Peanut Butter Pit Bull bar or my personal favorite, the Wild at Heart dark chocolate hearts filled with raspberry ganache!
Don’t forget to mention your favorite local rescue at check-out (some of our favorties are Chicago Bully Breed Rescue and Broad Shoulders Animal Rescue ), because they can get part of the profits from your sale.
Is only 10 days away. Want to get that special someone a tasty, ethically produced treat? Check out Food is Power’s article on fair trade vegan chocolate.
Also, check out Rescue Chocolate – all proceeds go to animals shelters and their chocolates are delicious! Better yet, type in Broad Shoulder’s Animal Rescue or One Tail at a Time’s name when you send your payment in before Valentine’s Day and these local shelters will get a percentage of the profit.
Looking for something to do with that special vegan/vegetarian in your life on Valentine’s Day? Check out one of these local events.
