Personally, the best part of receiving a gift is the knowledge that the giver is thinking of me. And I love receiving gifts because I love to know that I am being thought about. But then, giving and receiving gifts is one of my languages of love. Talking of which, these five ways of showing love are as follows – gifts; quality time; words of affirmation; acts of services and physical touch. Really connect with your loved ones by finding out the language that they best respond to and then create your valentines message and gifts around that.

If you are going to be buying a card or gift this year, we are positive we can inspire it to be an eco-friendly one. After all, the sweetest kind of valentines is an organic one 🙂 Below our some of our favourite picks, but do check out our full selection of organic valentines gifts too.
