Valentine’s Day gifts are weird, particularly for those in new(ish) relationships. How much is too much, or too little? What says “I love you” or “I really like you” that everyone can appreciate? Flowers are fine, but they’re predictable and often leave the recipient wanting more. Afterall, they die a little each day, and what does that say about your relationship? 

Gift vegan dessert

This year, show your love with swoon-worthy vegan sweets. But we’re not talking chalky heart candy or waxy truffles purchased from the convenience store. If you’re gifting desserts, they need to have the “wow” factor. Our rule of thumb when it comes to gifts: it should be something the recipient would enjoy but likely would never buy for themselves on account of being just a bit too frivolous or self-indulgent. For example, a half-dozen box of six-ounce peanut butter stuffed vegan cookies fits the bill. And yes, these are called Taylor Chip Cookies and are included in this guide.  

The 15 vegan treats below all abide by our gifting guidelines, go way beyond the lackluster box of chocolates found at the grocery store, and ship nationwide.

1 Taylor Chip Cookies

We’ve come across giant cookies before, and they’re fine, but Taylor Chip Cookies are truly the best we’ve ever sunk our teeth into. These cookies are colossal—six ounces per cookie—and many are stuffed with gooey, decadent fillings like peanut butter or studded with Oreo pieces. Taylor Chip isn’t an exclusively vegan brand, but they know their way around plant-based baking. Order a half or full dozen box of the vegan collection. It includes Loaded Peanut Butter, Oreos & Creme, Sugar, Brookie, Chocolate Chip, and Double Chocolate Brownie. Pro tip: a quick zap in the microwave will make your kitchen smell amazing.

2 Laderach

Swiss chocolate has historically been off-limits to those who eschew dairy, as it traditionally contains milk. This generations-old Swiss chocolate company is revolutionizing the category with its assortment of dark and cashew milk-based fine chocolates. We’ve had vegan milk chocolate before, but nothing as deliciously complex as this. In addition to creamy cashew milk, Laderach uses coconut blossom sugar to sweeten its confections, adding a subtly detectable caramel flavor to each bite. 

The vegan options range from slabs of caramelized cashew-studded dark chocolate to divinely rich and fruity blackberry-infused dark chocolate. It’s something both familiar and unique that’s bound to gain you some adoration.

3 The Very Best Cookie in the Whole Wide World

Humility may not be in this company’s ethos, but it deserves these bragging rights. The cookies aren’t the six-ounce show-stoppers of Taylor Chip, but they are melt-in-your-mouth, swoon-worthy good. The snickerdoodle flavor is heavily coated in cinnamon sugar, and the super-soft cookie melts in your mouth. No heating or non-dairy milk required, these cookies are perfect all on their own.
