Love Without a Price Tag

Are you sick and tired of the commercialisation surrounding Valentine’s Day? Do you want the celebration of your love to be more ecologically or naturally oriented?

This article allows you to pay homage to your loved ones in an eco-friendly way.

We should always remember how commercialized Valentine Day is; the true celebration of this day will always be love.

Dreaming of you keeps me asleep.

Being with you keeps me alive.”

  • Give your Valentine a rose bush or a tree (why not a beautiful organic fruit tree) to plant in the garden.
  • Instead of buying chocolates with packaging sure to end up at a nearby landfill, make some treats or heart shape biscuits / cakes.
  • The Heart … source of our Love, our Dreams & Desires…nothing compares to be so Beautiful & Mysterious.
  • Bake a pie with “I Love You”.
  • Make your love a present instead of buying one.
  • Ideas: self-painted pottery, a photograph you took, hand-knitted socks, a self-composed love song, a donation in his or her name to your eco-oriented non-profit of choice.
  • Fill a little basket with small home-made treats. Decorate with ribbons and sprigs from the garden.
     
  • It’s easy to make a small heart shaped wreath. Wrap kitchen herbs and flowers along two equal lengths of wire or vine. Bind together at one end, then form a heart shape. Decorate with ribbons.
    Why not start the special day with a candle lit breakfast?

  • Make a Herb Pillow with fabric scraps and ribbons etc.
  • Air dried herbs work best. You may cheat a little with some pure essential oils if stocks are low in the garden.
    Try Rosemary, Basil, Scented Geraniums etc…
    Candles (paraffin-free), flowers (organic), ribbons, and handwritten, heartfelt messages.
  • These are the magic ingredients to make a celebration…

  • Plan an evening stroll through a nearby park, forest, or beach.
  • Hold hands, stare at the stars and moon, and listen to the sounds of nature.
  • If it’s raining, find a covered vista or gondola and kiss to keep warm.

  • Have a family picnic under the stars or make reservations at an eco-friendly organic restaurant, or don your chef’s hat and prepare an organic feast that’s good to the taste buds and good to the planet.

“When I say I love you more, I don’t mean I love you more than you love me.

I mean I love you more than the bad days ahead of us, I love you more than any fight we will ever have.

I love you more than the distance between us, I love you more than any obstacle that could try and come between us.

I love you the most.”

Loving is ecologically very sound, does not upset the environment, energy efficient, saves heat, portable, requires no extra equipment, always working with benefits, eases tension, fights insomnia, makes every great day, even greater.

A wonderful feeling of belonging, feels great, dispels loneliness and opens doors to feelings, communication and the list goes on.

What value, what price if it could be sold?
