Valentine’s Day is not my favorite holiday purely for the fact that I feel that we should celebrate love everyday.  Chris and I actually make a point to not exchange gifts or do anything special on February 14th because we feel like we should do that sort of stuff randomly, not just because it happens to be a certain date.  I do however, like the idea of doing something special for your loved one, even if that day does fall on Valentine’s Day.  And because I’m a horrible gift-shopper and don’t get crafty too often, the easiest way for me to show someone I love them is through food.  Today, I’m sharing with you some perfect vegan Valentine’s Day menu ideas that would be a great way to show someone you care.

Personally, I think breakfast in bed is one of the most romantic ways to enjoy a meal.  Any of these recipes would be a fantastic way to tell your special someone “Wake up!  I like/’like-like’/love you!”
