5 ways to share the love this Valentine’s Day

‘Love is in the air, Everywhere you look around’

Yes, its difficult to ignore that February is the month of romance with Valentines Day on the horizon on 14th February.

Whilst this is an exhilarating & romantic time for many, for some it can be a painful reminder that they are single, widowed or alone.

With cards, flowers & heart shaped gifts in abundance from chocolates, cakes, balloons & more, Valentines Day is certainly a time for professing your love.

So whilst there is no shortage of ways to show our love to our husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, fiancee, significant other or secret crush, is there anything we can do to share the love a little to others that need it?

We all know someone who is alone, not necessarily by choice, whether it’s your Mum, Dad, an aunt, cousin or best friend- or maybe even you. And we know that Valentine’s Day can be a tough one when the rest of the world appears to be in love or partnered up.

So here are some 5 tips to bring a little joy & love to others this Valentine’s Day.

  1. Send some flowers

Nothing says I love you like flowers do. And it doesn’t need to be a dozen red roses (although that would be lovely, thanks very much!) – so why not send a thoughtful bouquet to bring joy to a loved one and Buy flower such as this stunning hand tied array of tulips.

2) Send a card

Receiving a personalised card can be the single most thoughtful gift anyone can send & receive. The simple act of taking a few minutes to write a message & let someone know you are thinking of them, cannot fail but to bring joy to someone.
Whether by paper card or by personalised eCard, send someone you love a heartfelt message this Valentines Day.

3) Phone a loved one

With so many ways to communicate these day from text messaging, WhatsApp, Facebook or Messenger, its easy to not actually call or Facetime and talk to loved ones. Whether it’s due to convenience, being busy or laziness at having to make conversation, days can slip into weeks & months of not picking up a phone to call.

However, to someone living alone or struggling with not being in a relationship, to actually talk to someone can help them feel connected & loved & help with any loneliness.

So whilst you’re sitting there, probably with your mobile in your hand- why not just do it & MAKE THE CALL !

4) Visit someone

Yes, we’ve all be in a lock down of sorts on & off over the last 2 years with the COVID pandemic, but we are allowed to travel & visit again now.
Some of us are still naturally anxious about becoming infected or spreading the virus to loved ones, but as long as we are responsible in following current national & local guidance, preferably fully vaccinated & maintain social distancing where possible, why not get out & about a bit and start catching up with family & friends and help others feel connected

5) Send a small gift

Theres no need for giant, expensive gesture but sometimes a small tokenism gift can mean the world to someone.

Have you ever found that when you’ve used a gifted item, such as a fruit bowl, socks or a candle, that you think warmly of the person that gave it to you when you use it?

Why not gift someone with small present, sent with love, to help them feel loved & smile.

A scented candle can be a perfect way to send a small but thoughtful gift, such as an Eco-conscious natural wax vegan candle, with a refreshing Seamint & Spruce with Eucalyptus & Peppermint aroma.

Whichever way you reach out to family, friends & loved ones this Valentines Day, we wish you a wonderful day full of love & happiness!

5 Simple tips for going Eco 🌳


1) We all want to do our bit to save the planet- but what changes can we realistically make to do our bit, amongst our hectic lives? Here are some simple tips that we can easily make to help look after our wonderful, precious planet

1) Go Paperless

We are all aware of our of what we need to do, but how can we reduce our paper use. Well, one simple way is by sending eCards online instead of paper greeting cards at www.lolvegift.co.uk  Simple whilst still classy, as well as more convenient & saves on rushing to the post box in time too!

2) Bring your own food to work

Yes- it takes a bit more planning when dashing out of the house in the morning- but have you ever thought of the packaging your meal deal actually makes? With a sandwich wrapper, crisp packet & a single use plastic bottle or tinned drink going in the bin each time- multiply that by 5 times a week & you soon start to create your very own waste dump.
Try taking your lunch to work in reusable packaging & a water bottle & you’ll not only save yourself some pennies, but also some trash.

3) Reduce food waste

How many left overs do you throw in the bin each week? Help reduce waste by planning your meals for the week & have one night for getting inventive & using all the scraps in your fridge- because everything goes with pasta anyway, right?!

4) Plant a tree

OK – so don’t worry if you don’t have a garden – we can plant a tree on your behalf! How? Well, for every subscriber to our eCard range at LOLVE eCards we will plant a tree for you at https://www.thetreeapp.org

So far we’ve planted over 80 m2 with trees in the rainforest on behalf of our customers, and we look forward to our forest growing, as part of our eco-friendly pledge.

5) Shop local

Reduce not only your fuel driving to your nearest supermarket, but support local businesses too. Buying local produce helps reduce your carbon footprint as well as supporting local businesses

Whichever ways you choose to do your bit, keep going & increase what you do over time. It will only be by us all taking personal responsibility of our actions that we can collectively make a difference & help protect our climate
