Hot on the heels of the new year comes the hot season of love. The most romantic of times, and the perfect time to raise a toast to those you love - be it partners, friends, familia, colleagues, or even for yourself (coz’ you deserve the most love).
No, we aren’t saying that you need Saint Valentine to come and remind you once a year to celebrate love, but it’s a welcome excuse to spoil the ones who mean the most to you
Now, what are the usual suspects when it comes to Valentine’s day gifting? There is the always pretty-as-a-picture bouquet of red roses and a decadent box of chocolates (all the more special, if in a heart-shaped box). Maybe a bottle of red wine to go with it. Is it what you were thinking of too? Oh, and let's not forget the greeting card containing words woven together anonymously. Now that we break it down, it doesn't seem all that unique, right? Or special, for your special someone. Allow us to explain.
As bizarre as it sounds, this has been the age-old tradition ever since the year 1415, when an imprisoned French medieval duke named Charles wrote to his wife “ I am already sick of love, my great Valentine.” This was the first record of a valentine being sent, which led to the current practice of sending greeting cards.
Valentine’s gifting in 2023
Chocolates and roses are passé. Starting this year, gifting chocolate and roses should no longer be the main event. They are a great way to start the special day, but no longer should they be the pièce de résistance. Let's phase out the cliches, and make new history together, not follow them.
Now, this classic holiday of love isn't that hard to nail down with a careful bit of planning. You have already made the right first step - coming here. Which means that you do realize there is a way to make this Valentine’s Day special for your loved one(s) whilst showing some love to Mother Nature too. What if we told you there is a way to add meaning and convey affection to your loved ones, without adding more plastics or e-waste, but rather a thoughtfully chosen sustainable and eco-friendly gift?
Take a breath to relax, and scroll down. We have done the legwork and rounded up the best items to say that spell 'I love you', for you. All you have to do is add to the cart.
There is no care like some self-care…
Yes, you read that right. Self-care is the practice of identifying your physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional needs and taking the required steps to address them in order to reclaim your well-being. You will find yourself not succumbing to stress as much, once you start the lovely and soul- satisfying journey of self-care. Which is why we think it should be a part of everyone’s busy and sedentary lifestyle.
By starting to self-regulate your emotions, you can recognise when you need a slight boost or some much-needed downtime. And what says “ I love you and care for you” better than a thoughtfully chosen sustainable and eco-friendly gift hamper with some self-care items?
Whether you’re scouting for the perfect present for your other half or simply want to indulge in some self-love, we’ve rounded up the best bits we have to offer.
Anything but red this Valentine’s Day? Choose some of the best earth tones we have to offer.
