It’s that time of year when you need to come up with something to impress your loved one. This year you can choose to surprise and impress with the thoughtfulness of the gift in mind. We have some wonderful ideas that are vegan, care for our planet, cruelty-free, compassionate and aren’t too expensive.
1. Love Beauty and Planet
Love Beauty and Planet can be found in most supermarkets. It’s made of 100% recycled products, vegan and also cruelty free (PETA certified). They don’t cost too much. In fact a 500ml shower gel should be around €6. So make your own Valentine’s pack according to your budget and gift wrap (in paper) and a matching ribbon.

How about a 100% biodegradable Bamboo cutlery set by Rebels with a Cause. Having said this, they are exceptionally durable and dishwasher friendly and sell for only €8.
