Today is V-day! Did you still not get anything? Well, get on yer bike for that red love heart – but, do your conscious research for your Valentine here first!
SAY IT WITH FLOWERS
Such a cliché, but flowers is still a sure winner with many Valentines! But how about clicking on (the social enterprise floral studio) Hello Flowers selection of Valentine Bouquets? Delievery slots for afternoons still available at:
THE SWEET TOOTH
Chocolate, it’s a classic, and the selection of fairtrade and organic bites is getting better, but why not let your loved one indulge in a succulent (palm oil-free and fairtrade) chocolate cake from Sayang’s? Choose between 6 different varieties:
Romancing your loved one for the special night? Why not light up and warm up to the fresh smells of Hush (natural, hand-poured and handcrafted) candles – and give your loved one a massage with Biconi’s (100% natural and organic) sweet almond oil? Whether a present or experience shop at:
FOR HIM ONLY
You’re on your way out, he reaches for the razor and you pass him your (sustainable and fair-trade friendly) present. This might just be his first romantic and eco friendly shave he has had, and one he will never forget, by getting this earth-friendly crome razor from Trove of Gaia:
GIRLS BEST FRIEND
So they might be diamonds, but let them shine, while you get shunned by the (fair trade and social responsible) Ashe and Taka rings! No doubt your girlfriend will glow wearing Ashepas jewelry, but also pride herself for having a conscious-in-the-know-boyfriend, who dare to avoid the classics. Shop for this girls new best friend:
ECO BUFF FAVE
If your partner has already taken the green step, why not go all in and show her or him how it’s done! Get the Bento box for your romantic pic-nic, the Rose Gold straw for your passionfruit cocktails and the Humble toothbrush before that Valentine kiss. Get the cool (sustainable and low zero waste) products at The Sustainability Project.
ONE WITH NATURE
And what more romantic, than to Valentine on-the-cheap and on-your-bum right there on the grass among the trees (and a few other people). You can’t get much greener than that, and you can surprise your loved one, with a home-cooked (or… take-away) gourmet meal.
Pic-nic in the Botanics + Park restaurants
SURPRISE + SHARE
A surprise with a splash-out or a splash-out with a surprise? You choose, but if you’re pockets are feeling deep and your weekdays long, why not sail to our very own neighbour and (sustainable and social responsible) paradise getaway, Cempedak. Adults only, with your own sea- or beach view villa and your own pool, it’s hard to go wrong for a getaway.
ALL IN THE WORDS
Less can be more, and sometimes the best Valentines present is words from your loved one. And, if you find it a struggle to do this, why not let (hip and healthy) Tinee Dino do the job for you? He’s spent 3 weeks practising to draw hearts, so you won’t go wrong with his card – all you have to do is add a few V words.
