Love Naturally by Gifting Sustainability this Valentine’s Day

Posted by Sarah Berkey on

It’s so easy to get sucked into the hype around Valentine’s Day. Remember that you can show your love and appreciation to both your soulmate and the environment at the same time! Gifting is a universal practice deeply ingrained in human culture. In fact, the act of presenting someone with a gift can be transcendent. Here’s what you need to know about prioritizing sustainability this Valentine’s Day.

Gift Ideas are Abundant

You needn’t worry. There are plenty of ideas out there. But are you consciously choosing a gift, or are you succumbing to what the commercial market wants you to buy? You have the power to choose, and you can choose wisely. 

One of the fundamental aspects of gift-giving is the ability to express emotions. Gifts serve as tangible representations of our feelings towards others, allowing us to communicate love, appreciation, gratitude, or even apologies. 

By carefully selecting a gift, we convey our understanding of the recipient’s interests, preferences, and desires, demonstrating that we have invested time and effort in understanding their needs. This act of thoughtfulness strengthens emotional bonds, deepens relationships, and fosters a sense of connection between the giver and receiver.

Here are some ideas, inspired by SukinNaturals, to make your gifts not only thoughtful statements that support sustainability, too.

Handmade Cards

Rather than purchasing a traditional pre-made card, get your creative juices flowing by using recycled paper. With this endearing, persoanlized touch, you’ll show love to your soulmate and the planet with a handmade card.

Buy Fair Trade

Swap out store-bought chocolates with some wholesome, ethical, fair-trade chocolates available at the local market. Even better, consider making chocolate on your own at home! Who doesn’t love some homemade chocolate?

Garden Flower Arrangements

Do you have a backyard garden? If so, consider creating a delicate bouquet from your own garden. This act of kindness will go a long way while bringing beauty to your partner’s life. If you don’t have a garden of your own, support your local nursery instead!

Choose Reusable Packaging 

Instead of buying new wrapping paper, consider getting creative and reusing paper around the house. For example, you can wrap presents in newspaper, discarded fabric, or grocery bag material. 

By doing this, you will be reducing the amount of paper or plastic needing to be thrown away, lessening unnecessary waste in the long run.

Sustainable Gift Ideas that Use Non-Toxic Fabrics

Many fabrics used in clothing, bedding, and towels have toxins in them that can harm the planet. Luckily, Not Labeled uses only fabrics that are made to be eco-friendly, non-toxic, and sustainable.
