Valentines Day, that day of love. If our better half is in to green living, then it’s time you started to think about a gift to give with eco credentials.
We’ve had a hoot putting this feature together. It truly is amazing what some people consider to be an eco ‘gift’ – we’ve been faced with energy saving devices through to oven gloves. However we managed to come through the other side with a heap of gorgeous gifts that you may actually enjoy receiving this February!
The eco massage
Grab a hold of a scrumptious St. Eval Candles and team it up with Inlight organic body oil and treat your other half to a beautiful massage.
The ‘as nature intended’ candle range uses only the very purest natural vegetable oils and essential oils – they burn for longer and leave a beautiful aroma in the room.
Inlight organic products give your skin nothing but a rich blend of antioxidants and nutrients (omegas 3, 6 and 9, beta carotene, vitamins A, E and D, chlorophyll and anthocyanins!) – so your skin can really benefit!
As much as I’d like to say that I don’t want to be on the receiving end of flowers, most of the time I do, even if it’s a potted plant. There’s something rather nice about flowers. Now you can receive such a gift without feeling guilty that the little loves will die in over a week.
“Love in a box” from Grobox is a perfect gift that will also give you hours of planting fun. It contains a range of bulbs that you can plant and watch grow for the bargain price of £7.50 available from ethical superstore.
If you love a good sleep, then you’ll love this pair of PJ’s! Make sure your other half gets his hands on ‘Life’s Not Fair…But My Knickers Are!’ range of Fairtrade and Organic cotton pyjamas and nighties. Available from ethical superstore – shorts £12, vest £15.
A tipple of love
Share this delicious Banrock Station Sparkling Shiraz Rosé in the knowledge that the good earned cash you paid for it is going to help conservation projects around the world. It’s light, fizzy while still maintaining the body of Shiraz. You can find it in Tesco and Waitrose for £9.15.
One for the boys
If we must return a gift this year (!), then the Organic Homme gift pack from Green People is a cracking choice. I love a well shaven man, and if he can do it organically then all the better. Pick up the set for £25 at greenpeople.co.uk.
