As consumers, we make decisions everyday that can have an impact on our planet. It can sometimes feel like a drop in the ocean, but every choice you make now, counts towards the impact made tomorrow. It can be as simple as switching out single-use plastics, or investing in a gift that has been made with the planet in mind, 

At GoEthical, we support brands, micro-sellers and artisan businesses that are committed to producing ethical, eco-friendly and sustainable products. Their thoughtful products are helping consumers meet the needs of the present without compromising the planet for future generations.

Gifting Alternatives This Valentine’s Day

We understand that not everyone can be with their loved ones on Valentine’s Day, or you simply may not want to splash out on a gift, there are still plenty of other thoughtful gestures to show you love to someone. 

Scavenger ‘love note’ hunt

Start with a few pieces of recycled paper, it can be any colour! Neatly write down all the reasons you are grateful for that certain someone – leaving some space underneath the note for some instructions.  Cut each note into it’s on square and number them 1-10. After each thoughtful reason, write an instruction to find the next note. Next, carefully place your notes throughout your house or garden, leading your loved one onto a trail of messages! 

Tip: Remember when you placed them all, otherwise the hunt could be never-ending. 

Cooking with care

Surprise your loved one with some pink pancakes in bed, decorated with all things ‘love;. Add a drop of red food colouring to your pancake batter, top with strawberries and a splash of pink cream! Guaranteed to go down a treat!

Tip: Don’t use too much food colouring, only a drop is needed. 

Peaceful picnic

Sometimes nothing says ‘I love you’ more than some dedicated time with each other. Explore some nearby forests and find a nice patch for some hot chocolate and treats! Spending quality outdoor time with each other is a great way to focus your attention, show someone you can and enjoy mother nature at her finest. 

Tip: Take plenty of blankets and a hot water bottle!
