Show Your Valentie You Care with Organic Gifts

By: Susan Seliger
GoodGreenTips.com

Haven't gotten your sweetie something for Valentine's Day yet? I'm not saying it's easy to find gifts that are loving, sexy, decadent – not outrageously priced – and still kind to the planet.

But just because it's a hard combo doesn't let you off the hook. This is one holiday where it's more than the thought that counts.

There's still time – for sweet stuff your favorite is sure to love – and love you for giving. And always, there's the gift of the gods, chocolate.

  1. CHOCOLATES: Fudge, truffles and caramels – all completely vegan and luscious, from Allison's Gourmet. Shaman Chocolates offers chocolates that will please the taste buds and ease your conscience – the bars are organic, free trade and 100% of the profits go to the Huichol Indians – which Sherman says is the last Indigenous Tribe in North American to maintain their pre-Columbian tradition. As if chocolate couldn't get better – Navitas Naturals takes organic cacao nibs – the legendary Food of the Gods – and blends it with raw organic cacao paste (liquor) and organic sugar cane juice.
  2. BODY, BATH AND CHOCOLATES: Pomegranate & Chocolate Love Kit – This love-kit, packaged in a pink bag, contains three bath and body products sweetly fragranced with organic pink guava essence and Fair Trade 70% cacao dark chocolate hearts. From Shea Terra Organics.
  3. SWEET SMELLS AND MORE: Heart-shaped, cinnamon (yes, that and vanilla are sexy scents) candles – and a host of modestly priced organic love gifts from Pristine Planet.
  4. DIRTY YET SOMEHOW CLEAN: Want to get a little edgy? Try these soaps with personalized or naughty messages, like, "Damn, I wish I was this soap." Each soap is said to be hand-made: from Soapcard.
  5. SUSTAINABLY-GROWN ROSES – AND CHOCOLATE FREE: Organic bouquet, which provides sustainably-grown flowers from its partner farms, has a special – a FREE box of organic truffles with every Valentine bouquet – all organic.
  6. DIY LOVE POTION – SHAKE IT UP: Make your own Organic Mint chocolate shake with this organic recipe, offered by Navitas Naturals:
