I can’t believe it’s already been a whole year since I wrote this post celebrating TVK’s first anniversary, and two years since I received my first ever TVK box! I still get extremely excited when it’s “TVK time”, perhaps even more so than ever. Just when I think they can’t possibly get any better, the TVK team will send out a box that totally blows me away.
These past twelve months, TVK has introduced us to 58 brands and 67 vegan products, almost all of which were new to me.
I love the fact that the boxes include a mix of edible items as well as toiletries and household products. This really sets TVK apart from other vegan subscription boxes.
From what I recall, this past year, all products included in the boxes (bar one luxury moisturiser) have been full size – including the shower gels and shampoos! I hear other subscription boxes include a lot of samples, so this is a big bonus point to TVK.
With only a couple of exceptions, I’ve loved every product in the boxes. I didn’t expect this to be the case, considering the wide range of tastes that TVK has to cater for.
This year, the boxes have been more ‘family friendly’ than ever. Each month, I always find there’s ‘something for everyone’ in the box. Lil’ L is as eager as me to do the ‘big reveal’ when a new box arrives.
I was trying to think of my favourite TVK product from the past year, but it’s impossible as I’ve loved so many! Here are a dozen or so ‘favourites’ that instantly spring to mind…
Organic Surge Awakening Shower Gel (TVK13) | Harper’s Bizarre Jingle Bells Christmas Candle (TVK14) | Power of Red Superfood Cereal Pot (TVK15) | Creative Nature Tropical Treat Bar (TVK15) | Eat Real Sour Cream and Chive Quinoa Chips (TVK16) |
Ananda’s Round Up (a vegan, hand-made ‘Waggon Wheel’!) (TVK 17) | Coconom Ginger Coconut Sugar (TVK18) | eat chic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups with Maldon Sea Salt (TVK18) | Sarelle Hazelnut & Dark Chocolate Cream Filled Wafer (TVK19) | Olive Branch Mezze Sundried Tomato Paste (TVK19) |
Elements for Life Yummy Scrummy Raw Chocolate Brownie (TVK20) | Hoots Multigrain Snack (TVK22) | inSpiral Smokin’ Coconut Pecks (TVK23) | Almighty Foods Mindful Mylk Chocolate Bar (TVK24)
Each TVK box also includes a collectable recipe card. I’ve been lucky enough to have two of my recipes featured this past year… my Red Lentil and Cashew Nut Loaf (which I’ll be making for our Christmas dinner again this year) and my Malaysian Coconut Noodle Soup with Smoked Tofu.
Each month, TVK also supports an animal-friendly charity, by donating 10p for every box sold. Each charity is chosen by TVK fans via their Facebook page. This past year, TVK has supported The Dr Hadwen Trust, Soi Dog Foundation, Veganuary, Mino Valley Farm Sanctuary, The Trusty Paw’s Clinic, C-A-L-F Animal Sanctuary, Hugletts Wood Farm Animal Sanctuary, Rabbit Run-Away Orphanage, Wing and a Prayer, Vegan Billboard, Teen VGN and Austin’s Hamster Haven.
I imagine a lot of my readers are already TVK subscribers but, if it’s new to you and you’d like to find out more, do check out their website and social media pages. The boxes are just £10 per month (plus P&P) and they ship worldwide. They also have Christmas Selection boxes, Lifestyle box gifts, Beauty box gifts and Gift subscriptions, which would make a wonderful present for your vegan loved ones this festive season.
As part of its 2nd anniversary celebrations, The Vegan Kind has kindly offered to give away an anniversary box to one of my lovely readers ♥
