Valentine's Day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate the love, than with some iconic gifts!
If you're someone who has been in a long-term relationship, you might be looking at steering away from the traditional roses and chocolates and instead, be on the look out for something unique and different to surprise your partner with.
In this blog, we'll be sharing some sustainable gift ideas that are a little less traditional, but all the more loved — read along!
Lovehoney's New Sex Toy Range - Mon Ami
Let's start with a bang — introducing Lovehoney's new range of sexual wellness toys, called Mon Ami, which translates to 'my friend.' Sex toys aren't exactly your typical valentine's day gift for your partner, but we're making it a thing!
So instead of gifting flower roses, gift Lovehoney's Rose Red Toy. It delivers gentle air vibrations that suck and massage, to create longer, more intense orgasms. Plus, if you were thinking of having a romantic bubble bath, it's perfect for having some extra fun in the tub. Also new, is the Wearable Couples Massager, which is designed to help you and your partner experience a shared, simultaneous orgasm. How great is that?
Of course you don't need a partner to help with your own self-love. Some other fabulous toys include the Wand Massager — designed to massage your body and bring you to orgasmic bliss, the Dual Vibrating Massager — that has a bulbous shaft to target your G-spot and a thick rabbit prong to stroke your clit, the Pleasure Air Suction Stimulator — which delivers, contactless caresses right where you want them and the Personal Massager — that fits perfectly in the hand and arouses any external sweet spot you stroke.

Pretty In Pink
If you've chosen to shake up the traditional Valentine's Day gifts this year, you can still stay on theme, by gifting all things pink! Sukin's luxurious Pink Clay Facial Masque is the perfect self-care gift and activity to do with your loved one. Both you and your partner can relax and have fun pampering together, with these nourishing pink face masks. What's a pamper session without some nail polish? Test your partner's painting skills with Sienna's Pink Nail Polish colour. If at first you don't succeed, try your luck styling their hair with Kooshoo's Hair Scrunchies.
Fun and games aside, some other gift ideas could be Endota's Hand & Body Lotion, which comes in a pretty pink bottle, the ANSC Natural Perfume Pink, which provides a strong floral scent, Eye Of Horus's Soft Pink Lipstick, which would help complete any look, and for the tea lovers, we highly recommend Golden Wattle Strawberry Pink Party Infusion. The pretty pink box alone, is enough to get excited about, but we defintely recommend adding ice and sugar, for a refreshing iced tea styled drink!
A Red Moment
Another colour that represents Valentine's Day is red, and here at F&F we definitely have some goodies that are sure to impress!
Axiology's Strawberry Makeup Crayon is a 3-in-1 gift as we like to call it, because it can be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks to transform your look. This crayon is as hydrating as a lip balm, but still provides that pop of colour. For more of a poppy red colour, Ere Perez's Blush Pot also doubles up as a lip and blush duo.
Ecoya's Strawberry Spritz Candle is sweet and sugary, with spritzy pink grapefruit, pineapple, sweet-smelling strawberry, passionfruit, guava and malt. Love will defintely be in the air with this delicious fragrance, so we highly recommend lighting this candle on Valentine's Day over a romantic dinner. Speaking of dinner, Charles Viancin Reusable Silicone Rose Lid is the perfect eco-friendly answer to replacing single-use plastic and aluminium foil. Impress your loved one, with a home cooked dinner, using this very seasonal rose lid.
If flowers and chocolate is still on your mind, think about gifting some seeds, we recommend Strawberries, as they are sweet and delicious, just like your loved one! It's the more sustainable choice, as most flowers last only a couple of days, whereas this way, your guaranteed with a long-lasting supply. As for chocolate, opt for a single chocolate bar to avoid food waste. Go Max Go Jokerz Candy Bar is layered with dry roasted peanuts, caramel and peanut nougat and is coated in delicious rice milk chocolate.
We hope these sustainable gift ideas helped you think outside the box for Valentine's Day this year! Remember, it's all about celebrating love, so whether that's with family, friends, yourself or a loved one — we wish you a very love-packed, cup-filled kind of day!
