Natural Valentine's Day Gifts
If you find yourself stuck for gift ideas this coming Sunday, don’t worry: we have the perfect presents for that special person in your life
. . . and who shares your love for nature.
Welcome to your Greenbelt Guide to Valentine’s Day Gifts – heartfelt offerings that will keep on giving all year round.
Wildflower Seed Mixes
Way better than a bunch of flowers to be stuck in a vase is the present designed to grow on the recipient. Not literally, of course. Most gift-packed mixtures are designed to flourish in many different soil types and garden environments.
The very best mixtures also attract pollinators, helping our butterflies and bees.
We recommend the Butterfly Seed Ball from our chosen charity Marie Curie.
Hearts may be smouldering with passion but we’re still in the midst of a chilly winter so why not let your other half share your love for our feathered friends?
Birds deserve their Valentine’s Day treats, too, and feeding tables, readily available from online retailers, really are one for the birds (and the bird lovers!).
Before buying, first consider the size. Anything less than three-feet square could be too small and lead to rumbles between robins and fights between finches.
Also, to ensure smaller and more timid birds get their fair share, consider an adjustable model that allows the feeding platform to move for different roof heights.
Of course, there’s also the wonderful Daffodil Bird Feeder from Marie Curie.
Remember 100% of profits from Marie Curie products go to providing high quality care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes.

We hope you have a Happy Valentine’s Day!
