Valentine's day is the perfect excuse to spoil your loved ones, eat chocolate, and listen to cheesy music while celebrating love. But as important as it is to show love for those we care about, it's just as important that we remember to take care of the environment.
This year, invest in eco-friendly gifts for your valentine. The market for eco-friendly products is blooming, so finding the perfect gift shouldn’t be an issue.
To help, we’ve put together a list of the best eco-friendly gift ideas to make this valentine's day special.
Best eco-friendly gift ideas to give your valentine
There's a reason most people buy chocolate on Valentine's day: it’s delicious, sweet, and romantic. If you're planning to buy your valentine some chocolate, we suggest going for some of these green, eco-friendly chocolates sure to satisfy your tastebuds.
Here are our top 3 gift recommendations for chocolate lovers.

2. A homecooked meal
This year, put some effort into your gift and cook a fancy dinner made of local ingredients. The point of valentine’s day isn’t to shop, and a home-cooked meal is a nice gesture that’s not only good for the environment but also good for your wallet. You can always combine this gift and add some eco-friendly chocolate on the side.
3. Eco-friendly candles
Instead of going for a paraffin wax candle, opt for an eco-friendly natural candle free from chemicals such as the intimacy aromatherapy tumbler candle. This luxurious candle is handmade in the Kentish countryside and contains a blend of natural ingredients and essential oils. With a subtle scent of rosewood, frankincense, and ylang-ylang, this is the perfect candle to set the mood for Valentine's day.
