Couples Massage

Couples massages aren’t exactly a radical Valentine’s Day gift idea, but they do boast quite a few health benefits! In addition to lowering blood pressure and stress, massages can also be helpful for those suffering from anxiety, fibromyalgia, muscle strains, headaches, and more. Plus, it’s guaranteed quality time with your significant other, which they’re sure to love!

BKR Water Bottles

These environmentally friendly glass water bottles sit inside a silicone sleeve that won’t let chemicals seep into your water. In addition to standard Valentine’s Day colors like pink and red, they also come in a multitude of heart designs. The bottles are favorites of celebrities like Zoe Saldana, Jessica Alba, and Reese Witherspoon.

For the Health Conscious Chocolate Lover

These Vegan Peanut Butter Brownie Bites are a perfect, healthy DIY gift for the chocolate addict. Best part? They’re delicious and (dare we say it?) healthy! Each bite is full of protein (5.1 grams!) and is cholesterol-free. More of a truffle fan? Check these out!

Edible Arrangements

Another great option for the fresh fruit or chocolate fanatic! Edible Arrangements has a ton of options to choose from for Valentine’s Day, including chocolate covered strawberries and heart-shaped pineapples.

Organic Bath Products

Etsy is a great spot to find organic skincare and beauty products like French Girl Organics, who make products for both men and women that are mostly vegan and organic and are never tested on animals.

Home Fragrance: Mint!

A Journal of Neurological and Orthopaedic Medicine study found that people who sniffed mint every two hours lost an average of five pounds a month. This mint candle + mint diffuser are guaranteed to make your home smell like a relaxing spa, but they may just help you melt a few pounds, too. Sounds like a win-win to us!
