Eco-Friendly and Ethical Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Her

midlandstraveller.comOnly one week to go, folks! Some couples love to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I personally don’t. For the simple fact that I don’t need a specific date to validate my love for my husband. I do this every day.

But for those that think it’s always a good gesture to give a present to the other half, I would recommend you go chose something sustainable that would show your love for the planet too! These are presents that I would love to buy (or win) on any occasion anyway!

Here are my gift guide ideas with Eco-friendly and ethical presents for her:


#1. Go for the Zero Waste Swap

I probably said this before, but reusable items are not only sustainable but also useful items. I know that reusable bottles may not look like not a romantic choice for a Valentine, but you may be wrong on this one.

Believe me! Everyone out there looked for a cool, stylish and durable plastic-free bottle at some point. So, why not give it to your partner? I personally would recommend Ohelo for anyone thinking about a present that is functional and beautiful. Check more about Ohelo products here!


#2. Love is Sweet

I think I never will forget the first time I stepped inside Magnolia’s Cupcakes in New York. For me, cupcakes are pure love. They are perfect gifts for any occasion.

The great news is that you don’t need to go to New York to make someone happy with cupcakes as a present!

I would recommend my friend Miss Apple’s Sweets gorgeous and stunning Vegan bite-size cupcakes as the sweetest gift for your valentine. Every girl likes sweets. Yes, you heard it. These are mini vegan cupcakes. Check more about Miss Apple’s Sweets here.


#3. Get Her Ready for The Summer

There is nothing more exciting than starting planning your summer holiday in advance? I am sure your girlfriend/partner/wife would be just happy to have her beach gear updated this Valentine’s Day.

I do love Tesalate sand-free towels and I think every woman should love it too! These compact and lightweight stylish beach towels are pure joy. Besides, they super are super absorbent and fast-drying. Check more on Tesalate here.


#4. Show Your Love for Natural Skincare

I’m addicted to skincare routines. It’s the time you have to love and care about yourself without pressure. It’s therapeutic and necessary! But it’s crucial to remember that it’s pretty important to choose the right product for any kind of skin.

I was so happy to bring Balmonds Natural skincare products to my routine. These are truly effective skincare to sensitive skin.


The All-Natural Starter kit is a treat for everyone who needs a pure and gentle skincare bundle to product and nourishes the skin. You have the chance to win an All Natural Starter kit here.


#5. Sustainable Jewellery with a Twist

I have worked with jewellery products for quite a while but can guarantee you that Guitarwrist is one of the most wonderful bespoke jewellery works I have ever seen in life. I was just touched by the incredible work done for all designers and the ethos behind the project.

The Guitarwrist is a 100% non-profit company that makes bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings from artists used guitar strings and plectrums, all hand made in the UK by Emma Hedley Jewellery.

There are amazing musicians contributing to them. This year an artist we also work with called Kerri Watt has teamed up with Guitarwrist to support Stop the Traffik, a human trafficking prevention charity. These are more valuable than diamonds, mates.


#6. Beauty with Benefits

Make up is probably one of the most popular gifts at Valentine’s Day. You can’t go wrong with this.


But if you are looking for affordable and high-quality products to surprise your other half, I would like to introduce you to Note Cosmetics.  These cruelty-free, parabens free, and 100% vegan products are my latest obsession. I am in love with the gift sets. They are a perfect match for your valentine too.


#7. Handmade with Care

I do love candles. The more natural, the best! I love how complex and rich some scented candles can be.

From the delicate orchid and blossom scented to the sweetness of coconut ones. The Handmade Perfect 4 You candles are stunning presents to be considered to make your Valentine’s Day relaxing and authentic.

Besides, soy wax candles are non-toxic, Eco-friendly and made of hydrogenated soybean oil. Sustainability first, guys!

#8. Cutlery with a Purpose
