Sweet gifts for the one(s) you love

Valentines is a holiday that many of us love to hate. It's hard to get wrapped up in the pink hearts and red roses and gushy songs if you're not in a romantic relationship - and it can seem a bit contrived even if you are!

But the concept of celebrating love itself is generative - meaning, the more love you put out into the world, the more it grows and grows. And giving as an act of love can be a very special thing indeed. So whether it's a friend, family member, or significant other, here are a few sweet gift ideas for the ones you love.

Little Barn Apothecary's Simple Body Oil [Moon]

We recently brought in this new line of hand-crafted body care products from Little Barn Apothecary in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Their body oil is a blend of cold-pressed hemp seed, sunflower seed, and jojoba oils that create the perfect non-clogging elixir to nourish your dry skin! Their [Moon] blend incorporates essential oils of juniper, orange, basil and rose and smells intoxicatingly like a late summer evening. A wonderful gift to be used as a body moisturizer or even as a massage oil.

Urban Moonshine's Love Tonic

This delicious Chocolate Love Tonic combines the aphrodisiac powers of raw chocolate and honey with a variety of herbs and spices to kindle the flame of passion. Add a dash to your drink of choice, or add it to the frosting on a chocolate cake! Perfect for setting the romantic mood on Valentine's eve.

Shoosha Baby's Massage Oil

Shoosha Baby uses only the finest and purest organic oils infused in organic herbs for baby’s delicate skin (so natural you could eat them!). This wonderful massage oil, available in both unscented and Lavender Vanilla, makes the perfect gift for both mama and baby!

Apotheker's Chocolate

What says love more than honey-sweetened, hand-crafted, locally-made chocolate?! We can't think of anything. This delicious chocolate is made in Jamaica Plain by Russ and Shari Apotheker (really, it's their last name) with love. The perfect desert bar, or melt some down to toss on popcorn (as they did) for an incredible treat.

Savannah Bee Honey

She's as sweet as Tupelo honey
She's an angel of the first degree
She's as sweet as Tupelo honey
Just like honey from the bee

Give your loved ones the gift of pure, golden Tupelo Honey! For two weeks every spring, White (Ogeche) Tupelo Trees in the Southeastern swamps bloom with fine sunburst-shaped flowers that glisten with nectar. Savannah Bee Company Tupelo Honey has buttery undertones and a mellow, clean-finishing sweetness. It's like a thick, slow-moving river of liquid sunshine.
