I've been looking for a special gift for my husband for Valentine's Day and in my long hours scouring the interwebs, I've found some pretty awesome ethical gifts for V-Day. Here are my favorites:
1. Mama Ganache
I'll be getting some of these beauties for my husband this year! With a shop in San Luis Obispo, CA and an online store, Mama Ganache (I just love that name!) has you covered for sweet treats. Their vegan chocolates are fair-trade and organic certified so you're getting top notch goods here. They even have a CHOCOLATE CLUB. Greatest club ever?! Let's be members together and retire to the country and eat our weight in chocolate while throughly loving our life choices. Okay? Okay. Back to Mama Ganache, basically, their chocolates are gorgeous and they'll make your valentine feel all sorts of special.
2. 100 Percent Pure
100 Percent Pure has lovely vegan makeup and skin care and their gift sets are perfect for all occasions. Perfectly priced, 100 Percent Pure is one of my favorite brands and I use their make up all the time. Their body lotions smell delicious!
3. Brilliant Earth
For those that are looking to get their valentine a spectacular piece of jewelry, Brilliant Earth is the place to shop. Their gemstones are conflict free and they're socially and environmentally responsible. They recycle gold and platinum to avoid additional unethical gold mining, and can provide a complete history of their gemstones. Even if you're not looking for an engagement ring, you can browse their jewelry and gemstones or create a custom piece!
Fair is a line of fair-trade wine and spirits! If you drink alcohol, you might consider trying these ethically made wines and spirits.
5. Andrée Ciccarelli
If you're looking for something a little more intimate, Andrée Ciccarelli's line of sexy lingerie will do the trick. I've just spent the last hour drooling over their gorgeous designs. These are made-to-order in New York with locally sourced materials. Chic, minimal yet devilishly sexy, they've got pieces that will make your V-Day and at a great price point. Excuse me while I spend all my money on lingerie!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
