It’s that time of year again. Some may love it, some may hate it. Whether you’re buying for a loved one or a buying as a secret admirer, why not keep it green this year? Buy an eco-friendly yet thoughtful present.

Handmade jewellery and cufflinks
Try Wheels and Butterflies, a jewellery maker we came across when we visited a Shoreditch market. They upcycle clock pieces and typewriter keys to create quirky rings, necklaces and cufflinks. Or explore vintage stores such as Annie’s Vintage or Pennie’s Vintage.

Living plants
Instead of giving a flower that will last a week, give a living plant from a local nursery that will cleanse the air for years to come. If you’re looking to send flowers long distance, check out eco-responsible services like EcoFlowers or Organic Bouquet.

Raw chocolate
If you or your better half are cutting out refined sugars and processed sweets, you might thing candy is out of the question this Valentine’s Day. But never fear! Raw chocolate is a pure, whole food that delivers health benefits as well as deliciousness! Some of our favorite brands include Gnosis ChocolateFine & Raw, and Lulu’s Chocolate.

A massage
Why not pay for you and your partner to be treated at a spa? We recommend Angel Therapy rooms in London or perhaps a trip to Bath – everyone loves a good massage.

Eco underwear
It’s a treat for both people in the relationship. Buy beautiful eco underwear.

Happy Valentines Day!
