No matter if you are celebrating self-love or love for another it's a good idea to be mindful of your purchases when giving 'Be Mine' gifts this Valentine's Day.
Charmed by a Cause
Charmed by a Cause designs jewelry with heart. Our jewelry is ethically crafted in NYC using recycled sterling silver and 14Kt gold, plus we share the love with our three cause partners. 20% of each purchase is donated to Covenant House, the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention (AFSP) or the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, the customer chooses and sees the exact dollar amount going to the non-profit they choose.
Shown here are three of our studio favorite pieces from our Valentine's Day Collection. Heartthrob ring, XOLove pendant, and Multi heart ring. Available in recycled sterling silver, 14kt yellow, rose or white gold.
Deborah Lindquist is a long time friend and a talented ethical clothing designer. She designs and manufactures women's clothing, accessories, and couture fashion from sustainable, organic and recycled materials. For a fabulous V-D gift we chose her reincarnated cashmere lip scarf. There are also many other applique designs to choose from and if your love is really on the straight and narrow Deborah also designs the most beautiful special occasion and wedding gowns.

We had the pleasure of meeting Katerina one of the dynamic duos behind this vegan dessert company at a pop-up event in NYC. We also had the chance to taste a couple of their amazing vegan desserts and you would never know how healthy they are by the taste, oh so good.
The raw vegan desserts are made of pure natural ingredients and never cooked so all of the nutrients nourish your body while delighting your taste buds. For example here are the ingredients in the beautiful cake below, cashews, walnuts, dates, coconut oil, water, coconut, freeze-dried strawberries, cocoa powder, vanilla, and lemon juice.
So if you really want to give something sweet to your sweetie, give them a healthy and much better for you gift from Culiraw.
Valentine's Day falls in one of the coldest months of the year so warm up your loved one's heart with one of our gift ideas, a thoughtful book or even something homemade. It's the thoughtfulness that counts. xoxo
