Is it easy buying someone a Valentine’s Day gift? You may well be very nervous.
There’s quite a bit to think about. If you buy something too expensive then you risk embarrassing them or coming on too strong. If you buy something too cheap then you look cheap. You might also want to avoid buying something commercial and mainstream. How much thought would have gone into that?
When it comes to Valentine’s Day you’ll certainly want to avoid any gifts that are associated with cruelty, wars or exploitation. That’s tough, right? How many shops do you know who absolutely stick to 100% ethical items? Many chain stores these days don’t even know where their clothes or food comes from.
It may well be worth checking out the Valentine’s Day collection at the Ethical Superstore. There are over 100 products here, a range of prices, and lots of good ideas. You can browse jewellery, skin care, scented candles and even organic wine.
