Valentine’s Day is only one week away, do you have a creative, green gift for your special someone? No? Well there’s no need to worry! Check out our last minute green Valentine’s Day gift ideas below.
1. Organic and Fair Trade Chocolates
Chocolate that is grown, produced and marketed in a way that isn’t harmful to the planet or the farmer. Plus they taste great!
The Daily Green has a great list of 19 of the Best Organic and Fair Trade Chocolates. Check it out.
2. A Potted House Plant
It doesn’t get much greener than an actual plant. Just to be safe, I wouldn’t get a potted plant as a replacement for roses, but it would go great in addition to some lovely organic roses (see below).
Don’t know what type of house plant to get? Check out our post about house plants that actually clean your indoor air.
3. Organic Roses
There are lots of online flower retailers that now offer Eco-friendly and even USDA Organic certified roses and other ornamental flowers. Organic Bouquet offers Veriflora certified organic roses that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
You could also check with your local Denver or Boulder florist to see if they have any organic roses available.
4. (non-toxic) Scented candles to set the romantic mood
Way Out Wax has an extensive line of hand made, all natural soy candles scented with non-toxic essential oils. No harmful additives or dyes are used.
Check out their romance gift baskets, available in small, medium and large.
5. Clean the House
Everyone loves the gift of free time and everyone loves a nice clean home. Why not offer to clean up the house this weekend and let your special someone kick their feet up and relax. You could also buy a Clean Conscience gift card and give the gift of green cleaning and then spend the free time on a romantic picnic. Contact us to purchase a gift card for Valentine’s Day (picnic not included with gift card…).
