Impact Tip - Last minute Valentine's Day ideas

Last week I posted about the biodegradable vases which are not only great for weddings but great for a Valentine's Day gift for people who are thinking ahead.

But if you are like most, you wait until the last minute to do things and now you are scrambling for options :)

If you are traditional and like to give flowers and candy, ask about locally grown or/and in season flowers from a florist like Fleur. You can also look into They will have to ship to you but their flowers would be local to them. It can be tough to find local and organic flowers in this climate.

Also, you can choose fair trade chocolates sold at Whole Foods as well as other local chocolate shops.

If you are looking for something a little more custom, you can purchase carbon offset credits through TerraPass or donate to a charity in your loved one's name.

Surprise your girl with a romantic night with some soy candles and sustainable skivvies sets from Inhabit.

Or my personal favorite, schedule a massage and a great place to do that is the Soulistic Studio and Spa in West Town. They have a holistic approach to healing, massage, and being eco-friendly.

Whatever you buy or don't buy, sometimes the best gift is just to be appreciated so find a way to spread the love this weekend with your gifts or your words.
