It’s hard to believe that it’s nearing the end of January – so it might be time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! Gah!
Honestly, my husband and I don’t really give each other gifts for Valentine’s Day anymore – we just spend time together. But I know that many people still love to exchange gifts, so this post is for you! (And I will live vicariously through you by coveting the things on this list!) These eco-friendly gift ideas are perfect for Valentine’s Day or really any occasion.
Not all candles are good for burning, so if you like to give them as gifts, go for a beeswax one like this instead. This candle cleans the air while you burn it and smells like the honey from the beehive it comes from!
This is the perfect gift for someone who loves camping and traveling. It makes pretty much any kind of water safe to drink – PLUS when you purchase one, you are supplying a child in Africa with clean water for a whole school year. How cool is that??
This toxin free exfoliating soap bar is perfect for him or her, and 100% of the net profits of this soap are donated to Pollinator Partnership, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting pollinators worldwide. Neat, right? (This is why we need to protect our pollinators!)
Ooooh, I LOVE these! These grow bottles are made from recycled wine bottles, and you can reuse them again and again to grow herbs in your kitchen! Perfect for those of us in climates where our outdoor growing season is so short. You can get them with basil, oregano, parsley, mint. and chives.

Another lovely gift for adding some indoor green! Indoor plants can be awesome for improving air quality, nevermind how beautiful they are. This woolly pocket is soft-sided and breathable, and made from recycled bottles in the US. The material keeps your wall dry, and also conserves the water you put in by bringing it directly to the plant’s roots. I’m in love!
I love my glass water bottles and I think they’re the perfect gift for anyone. Because who doesn’t need a water bottle? Getting one with a silicone sleeve or a nylon sleeve like this one makes it super functional.
Essential oils are such an awesome gift because they are so versatile and can be used for anything and everything. A premium starter kit would be an amazing “I love you” gift that will make your recipient’s life better in so many ways! Here are some ways I use essential oils.
If your recipient likes yoga, an eco-friendly yoga mat can be a wonderful gift. Traditional yoga mats have gross chemicals like phthalates in them (that you’re deep breathing in while you’re on the mat!) so an eco-friendly one shows that you care about your recipient’s health AND the earth.
