Most of you know I’m not very big on shopping. My idea of a great Valentine’s Day would simply be time with your sweetheart. Be it a picnic at a gorgeous park, a gourmet homemade meal, or hours set aside for one on one time (no cell phones allowed). But lets face it, sometimes gifts can be fun. If you are more inclined to break out the wallet and do some shopping, I’m here to help you shop sustainably. Here are a few of my favorite Valentine’s Day gifts.
Show your lady some love with a recycled silver heart necklace by Annatarian. $51 dollars on Etsy.
If your gal is cold as often as I am, give her some warmth and style with Neuaura’s Ugg style boots. All the warmth with none of the cruelty. $165 at Neuaura.com
Reveal makes the most beautiful eco-freindly purses & iPad holders. This gorgeous clutch is made of recycled stain but is miles from being crunchy. This is about as classy as you can get. $78 dollars at revealshop.com
Is your girl (or guy) a total yogi? Make sure she has a healthy yoga mat for all that deep breathing. 100% natural rubber mat, $69.95 at JadeYoga.com
You can still be traditional and go with a bouquet of flowers. Just make sure they’re organic. (Nothing kills romance like pesticides & poor labor conditions.) $35 and up at OrganicBouquet.com
Chocolate is always a good idea. You just can’t go wrong with organic and fair trade treats from Allison’s Gourmet. $12 and up at Allison’s Gourmet.
Need something for your guy?
Reveal has you covered. Check out their iPad holder & stand. On sale now for $78 on revealshop.com
Reveal also has these stylish bamboo DJ headphones. $108 at revealshop.com
No man should be without a stainless steel bottle. This one by Kleen Kanteen is not only the coolest looking, but it’s the only 100% plastic free bottle. $32.95 at Kleen Kanteen.
Sprout watches are literally sprouting up everywhere, from Target to Nordstrom. I love this one with a bamboo dial and a rusty orange organic cotton strap. $30 at Nordstrom.
If you don’t have time to deal with on-line ordering and shipping, just head to your local health food store. Grab some organic & fair trade chocolate, berries, & wine and make it a cozy night in. After all, this day is all about the person you love. xoxo.
