1. Winner, Winner,
Homemade Dinner.

Avoid the masses and spend quality time with your special someone by having a cozy Valentine’s Day dinner at home! To help make your V-Day dinner at home less stressful, between now and February 12th, you can stop by any Native Sun and pre-order a Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two! The dinners comes packaged with two servings of protein (grass-fed steak, Loch Duart Salmon or house-marinated tofu), delicious sides like organic asparagus and organic potatoes, and a piece of scratch-made cake from our gluten-free bakery!


2. Sweeten the deal!

Want to eat dessert first? Go for it! If you’re gluten-free, we suggest turning to our very own celiac-safe gluten-free bakery for your V-Day treats. On a dairy-free diet? Head to our freezer section for a pint (or two!) of Coconut Bliss Non-Dairy ice cream to top off a piece of our famous Grandma’s Vegan Chocolate Cake! Not into cake or ice cream? Chocolate is a great go-to! We’ve got a ton of natural and organic selections like Chocolove, Alter Eco, Green & Black, Theo, Endangered Species and Justin’s on sale all month long, so if you’re going the chocolate bar route, we say grab a few to share!


3. Treat yourself!

This Valentine’s Day, splurge on some all-natural beauty products that will leave you looking and feeling fresh! Some of our favorites to pick up in store right now are…

  • Weleda’s creamy Skin Food products. They’re perfect for winter because of hydrating ingredients like beeswax, shea butter and sunflower seed oil.

  • Mineral Fusion’s luxurious 3-in-1 Color Stick. Like the name suggests, you can use this super versatile product on your eyes, lips and/or cheeks. Plus, the entire line is Paraben, gluten and cruelty free.

  • Aura Cacia’s essential oils. Let us count the many ways you can use these oils: in a diffuser, as a roll-on perfume, in a room spray, or mixed into a home-made face mask. We could go on!


4. Celebrate all month long!

We love Valentine’s Day so much we’re celebrating it all month long at our Juice + Bar with our seasonal vegan Chocolate Covered Strawberry smoothie! Organic bananas and almond milk give this smoothie it’s creamy base, while organic strawberries and cacao nibs make it taste like one of our favorite V-Day treats! Grab it anytime you like through the end of February!
