Homemade Valentines are my favorites to give and receive. When it comes to creating a theme for your Valentine cards this year, look no further than our animal friends! The cute vegan valentine ideas below go a long way in sharing and spreading the animal love!
1. Celebrate With Vegan Chocolate & Candy!
Valentine’s Day is all about love, so it only makes sense to choose sweet treats that did not harm animals and were made with love! We’ve compiled some of our favorite vegan candies here.
2. Share Heart-Shaped Animal Valentine Cards
Hearts easily lend themselves to creating all sorts of creatures in the animal kingdom. Think pigs, bunnies, panda bears, and frogs! Check out these heart animals from Crafty Morning to inspire you. Just make an animal and paste it to the front of a card—voila!
3. Make LOVE-ly Homemade Animal-Friendly Treats
Some of my favorite Valentines are the ones I can eat! Turn cupcakes, cookies, and even rice crispy treats into animals using your creativity (and perhaps some frosting and sprinkles). I love these Puppy Love Valentine cupcakes from Fork and Beans. Or you can use animal-shaped cookie cutters to cut out cookies and rice crispy treats in your favorite animal shapes, and then decorate! Or, try these mini vegan heart-shaped pizzas that are easy to make and always a big hit with kids.
4. Get Crafty With These Animal Candy Huggers
Download these adorable animal Valentine candy huggers, cut them out, and fill them with wrapped vegan chocolates or other candies for a delicious treat! Attach a tag or notecard with a cute saying to go with your animal creations above, such as:

- Wild thing, you make my heart sing! (any safari animal)
- Hoo loves you? (owl)
