Conscious Gifts to Help Us Celebrate Love
Now we all are consumers, right? Though, many of you like me are forming into much more conscious ones. Whether your love language is, Valentine’s Day offers as a sweet excuse to buy flowers, consume chocolate, wear heart warming colors such as red & pink, put on something that makes you feel sexy, or even take a moment to celebrate the loved ones in your life that fill your heart space.
Though this day is not all about gifting, we love the little things that can make this day feel extra loving. Below are gift ideas that are purposeful, conscious, and ethically made. Allow this holiday to open your heart and enjoy the love around you.
