5 Valentine's Day Gifts That Give Back

Posted on

Valentine's Day Gift Ideas That Support Charity and Social Enterprise

We want to spread the love far and wide this February, so we've compiled a list of 5 Valentine's Day gifts that give back, because there's more than enough love to go around, and what a great time of year to shower it on the people who need it the most.

These days there are so many ways to make your purchase have impact, and celebrate the ones that you love whilst making somebody else's day, so take a look at our top picks and make Valentine's Day a movement that's bigger than edible underwear (ouch):

1. Blooms that Help Beat Cancer

Valentine's Day Flowers that Give to Cancer Research

Roses are red, daisies are white, if you give flowers this Valentine's Day, make sure they help fight (Cancer). 

In partnership with Prestige Flowers, Cancer Research UK has launched an online florist selling classic red roses and fun floral bouquets that are perfect for Valentine's Day gifting. One quarter of sales from each order goes towards life-saving research to help beat cancer. The price for a bouquet of roses starts from £30.

2. Gifts that Support Artists Living with Complex Epilepsy and Learning Disabilities

Arthouse Meath Gifts for Valentine's Day

ARTHOUSE Unlimited is a collective of artists living with complex epilepsy and learning disabilities all of whom require varying levels of support, they produce the most glorious gifts and gorgeous homeware full of punchy prints and hilarious designs. Our favourite is the collection from Peter Andrews called 'Peter's Naked Ladies' - if that doesn't say Valentine's Day, we don't know what does!

Fill your basket up with chocolate, candles and bits for the bath for the ultimate Valentine's Day Night In that supports and empowers this collective of talented artists.

3. Rings that Share a Hug with Women Around the World

Posh Totty Ring for Valentine's Day Gift

One of our favourite Brighton-born businesses is Posh Totty Designs, and we'll be treating ourselves to one of their Share A Hug Open Rings this Valentine's Day.

Created in partnership with the absolutely fantastic Women for Women International, £5 of the proceeds of each ring go directly to the charity, so you can put your hands to good use and support the brilliant work of Women for Women International, who help women survivors of war rebuild their lives.

4. Pretty Pouches that help Support Wilderness Preservation

Lily Pad Clutch Pouch Postcards Home - Valentine's Day Gift Ideas

Bring things back to basics this Valentine's Day with this lovely lily pad print clutch pouch, hand screen-printed with a sturdy cotton twill lining and a leather pull. The design is inspired by the botanical gardens of the vibrant Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, and is the perfect print for a lover of nature. 

We're donating 10% of sales of this product to WWF, to support the valuable work they do towards wilderness preservation, and the reduction of human impact on the environment. So wear it with pride!

5. Help Refugees Stay Warm

Choose Love Shop to support the refugee community this Valentine's Day

If you want to buy a gift for someone who's not a fan of the whole Valentine's Day gifting thing and would rather receive a gift that did something impactful, then head to the Choose Love shop.

Choose Love is a store with a difference. You can buy items which are then sent to refugees. For example, you can buy a Winter Warmers Pack for £15 on your partner’s behalf, which includes socks, a snood, underwear and gloves. The gift “could be the difference between a shivering, sleepless night and a bearable one”.

We hope you love our top picks for spreading a little extra love around the World this Valentine's Day. If you know of any other enterprises with gloriously giving Valentine's Day gifts, then let us know and we'll share the love on Instagram!

Happy Valentine's Day One and All!
