The Sustainable Valentine’s Day Gift Guide (For Him, For Her, For You)

In the UK, around 91% of people are likely to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. That makes it one of the most popular holidays in the country, and could see a jaw-dropping £1.37 billion being spent on gifts! What a generous lot we are.

If you’re going to be sharing the love this year, we thought we’d do our bit to help. Whether you’re buying for him, for her, or for yourself (self-care Valentine’s Days are absolutely a thing), we’ve put together our top presents to ensure everybody feels the love. Take a peek and let’s get romantic!

Sustainable Valentine’s Day Gifts For Him

Green Stem CBD Tincture

If you know a man who’s always on the go, give them a present that will help them wind down. This Green Stem CBD Sleep Tincture is made from the highest quality organic CBD right here in the UK and is infused with magnesium, vitamin B6, and zinc. Together, this is one powerful concoction to help your loved one get better sleep.

Mandarin & Ginger Hand and Body Wash

In 2022, there’s nothing saying that a man can’t enjoy a luxurious body wash. This Mandarin & Ginger scent is ideal for adding a little warming spice to their shower and is crafted from natural essential oils to nourish the skin. Spicy and uplifting, it also comes in a super sustainable glass bottle, making this perfect for the eco-conscious man in your life!

Eco-Friendly Limited Edition Lino Prints

Gifting someone art is romantic. Gifting someone art that’s sustainably produced is a whole new level of love. We have a few different eco-friendly lino prints at Wild & Rust, including the Begonia and Sansevieria prints which make a beautiful pair! Created by a local artist in the English countryside, there’s only a limited run of these artworks so snap them up whilst you can.

Sustainable Valentine’s Day Gifts For Her

Mango Wood Hurricane Lamps

It’s normal to gift candles for Valentine’s Day, so we thought we’d think a little outside of the box this year. Our idea? These beautiful Mango Wood Hurricane Lamps. Made from recycled glass and natural wood, they’re a unique gift for the woman in your life who loves her candles! They make wonderful centrepieces for a homemade dinner or pair perfectly with a romantic bath and a few rose petals as part of the perfect Valentine’s Day.

Vintage Brewery Crate (Fill With Your Loved One’s Favourite Drinks)

At Wild & Rust, we have a selection of vintage items carefully hand-selected by our team. One of our favourites at the moment is this incredible Vintage Brewery Crate, which has sailed across the seas from the Timmerman Brewery in Brugge and eventually landed right here in the UK. We think it would make a delightful eco-friendly Valentine’s Day present for your special lady. Fill it with her favourite bottles of wine, gin, or fruit juices for a gift that’s bound to please.

Senecio String of Pearls

A gorgeous houseplant is always a thoughtful gift, and nothing beats this Senecio String of Pearls - at least not in our opinion! Easy to care for, this is a fantastic choice for someone who is looking to start nurturing their green fingers and delve into the world of plant care. It also has adorable pea-like leaves, which are just too cute to leave in the shop (or your basket if you’re shopping online).

Self-Care Valentine’s Day Gifts For Yourself

Wilder Beauty Tea Infusion

Who is to say that you can’t make this Valentine’s Day a time to treat yourself? Self-love is perhaps the most important love of all! Start your day off with a mug of this warming loose leaf tea from Wilder, a London based company that produce small batches of truly exquisite brews. Their Beauty Tea is designed to nourish you physically and mentally, making it the perfect Valentine’s Day self-care treat.

Create Your Own Spa Day

If you don’t often treat yourself to a long soak in the bath or an indulgent shower, now’s the time to do so. Invest in a few staple pieces for your bathroom to turn your space into a relaxing spa, like the De-Stress Bath & Body Oil from Yellow Gorse. Crafted from natural oils, it’s nourishing to your skin and has a gorgeous scent designed to help you find inner peace. We also recommend the Fruits of Nature Rose Body Cream for silky, sweet-smelling skin.

An Everlasting Bouquet

Every special Valentine’s Day needs flowers. This year, why not buy yourself a gorgeous bouquet? You should always be your own number one fan, after all! At Wild & Rust, we have an amazing Dried Flower Bar where you can browse through plenty of dried blooms. Stylish, easy to look after, and long-lasting, you won’t just have a bouquet for the day, but for life! Isn’t that lovely?
