Still haven't found that perfect Valentine's day gift for your sweetie? Rather than hitting up a big box store, you can show a little love to your giftee and an independent artist at the same time with one of these eco-friendly, handmade finds.
Even last year when spending was down, Americans shelled out over $17 billion for Valentine's day presents! Imagine the difference that money would make if your dollars went to support an indie businesses making eco-friendly products! Not only are these finds better for the planet, they're helping the handmade community continue to thrive.
It's getting down to the wire, and items that are coming in the mail may not make it in time for the big day. If you're worried about showing up empty handed, you might try printing out a picture of your in-transit gift on recycled paper and including it in a card. Maybe with some recycled forever flowers?
