Eco-Friendly Valentine’s Day Gifts {For You}

Green Valentine Gifts

Valentine’s Day is around the corner. I love celebrating this day with my husband simply because it forces us to have a date night, usually a glass of wine followed by a late dinner once the kids are in bed.

We try to exchange gifts that are on theme with Valentine’s Day yet aren’t so clearly cupid that they get tossed into a keepsake box once February is over. These are my top choices for eco-friendly Valentine’s Day gifts-hopefully hubby will read this post! All the products can be found online but do check the retailers list to find out where to purchase them at a store near you.

LOVEFRESH sugar scrub: I already adoring using LOVEFRESH body butter and their non-toxic deodorant as part of my daily green beauty routine. I know their sugar scrub will help me form even tighter bonds with this Canadian non-toxic beauty company as I exfoliate my skin in the shower. I want the pink pomegranate scrub but you can choose from many scents.

Evoke the Elements perfume: I’ve long given up wearing perfume due to the toxic ingredients found in conventional fragrance products but I miss wearing it! Evoke perfumes are made for people like me (and you) who want 100% essential oil/plant based fragrance. There are five scents available based on Chinese medicine and aromatherapy. Each are designed to evoke certain emotions.

Red and White Southbrook Connect Organic Wine: Connect is my favourite anytime Ontario wine. I love that it’s organic, available for a great price in most LCBO stores, and pairs nicely with any foods.

Giddy YoYo chocolate: Canadian-made, Fair-Trade vegan chocolate already makes me swoon. The flavours are so rich that you won’t mind sharing a bar with someone you love.

bkr Bottle: These glass bottles are so pretty that they seem more like an accessory rather than a way to get my hydration on. The silicone sleeves come in plenty of colours but I dig the hearts. It’s Valentine’s Day after all!

Strawesome: I became a glass straw convert this summer as my boys and I sipped our daily green smoothies. Switching to a reusable straw is an easy (and pretty) way to up your green game! I can imagine this special edition Be Mine Straw going nicely with a bkr bottle!

Matt & Nat: I can’t believe that I don’t own a Matt & Nat bag yet! They are a Montreal-based, vegan company with a commitment to sustainable, eco-friendly design. The poppy coloured clutch would add a hit of colour to my mainly black and white wardrobe. Their bags tend to sell out fast but there are many designs from which to choose.

    Oooh! Some fun stuff here that I had not heard of. I have to try that chocolate!

  • Betsy (Eco-novice) says:

    I broke too many pipettes in lab to want to use a glass straw, but I love my stainless steel ones!

  • Green Bean says:

    Oh my. I’ve never thought of buying myself a Valentine’s gift. I just forego straws. Do you really think it is worthwhile to get a reusable one?

    • Sara Vartanian says:

      I didn’t use straws for a long time but I really like drinking my green smoothie from them. Also, both my boys enjoy using a straw so I think it’s worthwhile.

    What great gift ideas! I’ve never heard of that chocolate brand, I may have to check that one out! 🙂
