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.

1. Beeswax Heart Candle

2. LifeStraw Personal Water Filter
The Award Winning LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

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?? If your significant other enjoys this present, you might want to have a look on sites such as https://waterfilterway.com/best-countertop-water-filter-reviews/ for home water filters, potentially making your home drinking water safer to drink.

3. Earth Easy Honeybee Bar – Honey Oatmeal Soap

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!)

4. Recycled Grow Bottles

recycled grow bottles earth easyOoooh, 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.

5. Abeego Flats

6. Vertical Gardening Woolly Pocket

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!

7. Reusable Produce Bags

I love taking lightweight mesh produce bags to the farmers market when buying produce so I can cut down on my plastic bag consumption. Plus the mesh bags make it easy to see what’s inside.

8. Glass Water Bottle

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.

9. Essential Oils Starter Kit

New-Premium-Starter-Kit-YoungLivingEssential 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.

10. Eco-Friendly Yoga Mat

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.
