Earth Fire Jewellery


Silver Heart Leaf Pendant or a protective Evil Eye Pendant, talisman, by Earth Fire Jewellery.

As we celebrate this special day of love, I offer you a unique and meaningful gift—the powerful Evil Eye talisman. Also known as the Nazar amulet or the captivating token holds the promise of safeguarding the one you hold dear. It serves as a shield against the malevolent influence of the 'evil eye,' that envious and jealous gaze that can bring harm, misfortune, or ill luck to those we cherish. Let this timeless symbol be a reminder of my unwavering commitment to protect and cherish, now and forever.

The belief is that the talisman absorbs the negative energy directed at the wearer and either deflects it away or breaks, thus preventing harm.

4. Perfume


Mecca sells many vegan options. I had Ellis Brooklyn, Raven Eau De Parfum bought for me. I love to wear it, particularly in winter as it has a deep, warm scent. Here is my Amazon affiliate link to Ellis Brooklyn Raven candle.


Raven perfume is vegan

The unlikely inspiration for this intoxicating scent? The raven, of course. Steeped in mystery and complexity, this unique fragrance channels the multifaceted essence of this captivating creature. Seductive and complex, this scent exudes an air of confidence and sensuality.

5. Books and Film

Romeo + Juliet

Can't find the right words to express your feelings? Look for inspiration from the professionals.


Poems: A quick search for ‘love poems’ brings up a myriad of options. Check it out on my Amazon link: love poems.


Looking for a film?

Shakespeare adaptations: These are a great way to go. Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet from the 1990s is a classic. Or the other 90s hit 10 Things I Hate About You.


Wanting something a little more comedic? Warm Bodies, 2013 is an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.


Here is my Amazon affiliate link if you want a hard copy of a Romeo and Juliet film.



6. Food and Treats


Wine


Many progressive wine companies now have vegan labelling. The main thing to look for on the ingredient list is egg. Some wines are processed using egg. If you cannot see this, assume that it is. It is better to play it safe and buy something that says vegan. This way your vegan can relax and enjoy the wine.


Chocolate


Vegan Chocolate is awesome. There are many choices. While I haven’t seen anything specifically dedicated to this day, I have a feeling this year might be the year. There is already vegan Easter and Christmas chocolate. Logically, Valentine’s Day is the next major celebration involving chocolate.


7. Accessories


Choose clothing, shoes, bags, and accessories that are made from synthetic or plant-based materials and do not use animal products like leather, fur, or wool.


Bags


There are many options now including vegan leather. Filter through these sites and see if you can find something that suits your person’s style.

8. Experiences


Time and attention are two of our most precious resources. Spend quality time off your phones with each other. Go to new places, try new things, and only take your phone out to take photos.


  • Attend local events

  • Board games or puzzles

  • Cooking together

  • Couples' spa day

  • Dance class

9. Flowers


This one is obvious, but I am going to include it because it is important. Most ladies I know like to get flowers. Be bold and try different varieties to what is expected and at least once a year buy flowers unexpectedly, just because.


10. Plants


A longer-lasting gift than a bouquet. You could consider buying a plant if your person has a green thumb. A rose bush will produce roses over a lifetime.


Bulbs are another idea. Some of the most beautiful flowers come from bulbs. The great thing about them is that the flowers return annually.


11. Personalised Gifts

Consider a custom-made piece of artwork or a framed photo of the two of you. You could even book a professional photography session.


Buy a digital photo frame with my Amazon link. This way all those pictures you have been taking on date nights can go on display.



Here are some general tips when buying for vegans.


It is possible that some of these suggestions are not 100% vegan. We are all consumers and it is impossible to do zero harm to the environment.


In my opinion being vegan isn't about being perfect, it is about moving towards more environmentally consious and animal ethical decisions.

Do not buy animal products:


Wool

Silk

Leather

Feathers

Fur


In food:


Egg

Dairy

Honey

Meat, poultry, fish or shell-fish

Animal-derived products such as gelatin, casein, and whey, lard, collagen


Other animal goods and services to steer clear of:


Avoid palm oil: Even though palm oil comes for plants farming vegans avoid it for environmental and health concerns. The farming comes at the cost of mass habitat destruction putting species at risk. Orangutans are one of the most famous animals to be at risk due to palm oil plantations.


Anything tested on animals: some products are not tested on animals/ ‘cruelty free’, but they contain animal products. This does not pass for vegans, don’t buy these.


Animal entertainment or exploitation: No horse rides or trips to Sea World. If you are going to watch a film, animals in distress may upset your vegan.



Things to look for:

Vegan labeling: This is the easiest way to know your gift will be suitable.

Environmentally friendly and/or organic

Cruelty-free AND vegan (no animal products in the item)


Ethical: such as fair-trade
