Where did January go? The most romantic day of the year is already just around the corner: Valentines Day. A good moment to spread the eco-friendly love and to give some love back to our planet. We hope to inspire you with these Valentines Day Gifts that are eco-friendly and, we think, simply fab!
Celebrate Valentines Day
You should celebrate love everyday, right? With our busy lives, we tend to forget to make time for our loved ones, and treat them (and ourselves) occasionally. Whether you are single or in a relationship, treating yourself and others will make you feel good. Let us give you a few good reasons why (eco-friendly) Valentine Day Gifts are the way to go.
Giving a gift shows that you care. It is a thoughtful gesture that says, “I was thinking about you and I wanted to do something special for you.” And what could be more special than receiving a heartfelt gift from the one you love?
Another reason to celebrate with gifts is that it gives you an opportunity to show your creative side. Thinking outside of the box, and coming up with something original is a unique and personal way to show you care.
Last but not least, giving gifts is fun! There’s nothing like the look of surprise and happiness on your partner’s face when they open up something you have put so much thought into.
Why Celebrate Valentines Day with Gifts?
Valentine’s Day has become a much-celebrated occasion. Every year, people around the world express their love for one another with gifts, cards and romantic gestures. But has Valentine’s Day become too commercialised and wasteful?
In the modern world, it seems that commercialisation and waste has taken over many of our traditional holidays and celebrations. With Valentine’s Day being no exception.
Stores are filled with heart-shaped decorations and reminders to show your love for someone on this special day. All the promotion around this day may take away the true meaning of Valentine: to express our love for those we care about.
We believe that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be celebrating Valentine’s Day; in fact, it can be a great way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you with even more thoughtfulness in buying something long-lasting, sustainable and unique?
It is so easy to show your love to your partner, but wouldn’t it be great to also give some love to our planet? Besides, buying eco-friendly Valentines Gifts can show how much you care in a more meaningful way, as you are supporting sustainably-minded smaller businesses instead of commercial big store brands.
Eco-Friendly Valentines Day Gifts for Her
Looking for an original, unique gift for her? We sorted out a few gifts that we think will be a great success. Whether it’s your girlfriend, wife or just a date, these are some of our favourite eco-friendly Valentine Gifts for her.
We all love a long, hot bath, especially in the winter. The perfect time for some rest and relaxation when it’s cold outside. The ingredients are also all vegan.
Diamonds… uh, earrings are a girl’s best friend. Especially when they are created in an ethical way and created on a smaller scale with more thought, love and effort put in. And love is what Valentines Day is all about, right?
Candles are romantic, there is no doubt about it. That’s why it is sad that they can often be made of petroleum derived paraffin and release harmful fumes when lit. This Vintage Vegan Candle Set is made from soy wax so as well as being vegan they also burn slower so they can last longer.

Eco-Friendly Valentines Day Gifts for Him
There are so many gift options during Valentine’s Day but there is not always a perfect gift for him. We have selected some of the best gifts for men we have to show them some love this Valentine’s Day.
Henleys are all the rage these days – why not get them one that makes it that bit extra special. These henleys are made from hemp and organic cotton and even have buttons made from tagua nut, making them completely plastic free!
Sustainable shaving? Yes – that’s a thing now! Men can often go through multiple conventional razors or even disposable razors but the mix of materials on these make them difficult to recycle and most importantly low use. This razor will stand the test of time and will save them money as all they will need to buy in the future are blades which can also be easily recycled at end of life.
As well as difficult to recycle razors, something men can go a lot through is shaving foam. These cans suffer from a similar issue to the razors in that the mix of materials means they are not recycled properly or end up in landfills.
This Tea Tree & Eucalyptus shaving soap bar is incredibly soothing to skin so is perfect for shaving and will show their skin some serious love.
