Instead of red, try green to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Even if you are only a dabbler when it comes to going green for your environment, showing a bit of environmental friendliness is always a good idea.

Although paper and foil greeting cards have a lot of style and class, they typically end up in the trash after a day or two. Why not do something nice for the environment and your loved one at the same time and go green with electronic greeting cards?

The total number of websites offering free electronic greeting cards and postcards is staggering. With so many options, you could easily send your sweetheart a different ecard each day for the first two weeks of February. From plain and simple to musical variations to motion ecards, the expressions offer sweet, tender renditions of love.

If you decide to get your loved one a bouquet of flowers, opt to purchase flowers that have been organically grown. These can usually be purchased at your local farmer’s market. Commercially grown flowers are often treated with chemicals and pesticides that are harmful to our environment. Therefore, if you select organically grown blooms, you will also be giving the earth a sweet treat for Valentine’s Day. Plus, organically grown flowers are affordable as well as colorful.

Better yet, how about purchasing a plant, bush, or tree that can be planted? Not only will your Valentine realize how much you care, but she will also be able to realize it every year in the future each time she looks at this token of your love.

If you are treating your special Valentine to the sweet taste of chocolate, consider organically grown chocolate. Although you might pay a bit more for this type of treat, it does help to support healthy communities. You can usually locate organically grown chocolate at stores specializing in organic products.

If your special Valentine loves sweet pastries, bake something tastefully delicious and package it in a reusable container rather than buying something at the supermarket. Most of the plastic containers and plastic coated bags used at the supermarket are not recyclable. Therefore, you can make an impact if you choose to bake your own Valentine’s cakes and cookies each year from now on.

Another idea for a green show of affection is to prepare dinner at home rather than eating take out. Take out meals usually require the use of non-recyclable containers that spend years in a landfill somewhere.

These are only a few of the many ways that you can show that you are “green-at-heart” on Valentine’s Day. Use a bit of imagination and come up with a few of your own ideas.

Valentine’s Day Meal Hacks

Valentine’s Day comes early this year and as you wait for this day, here are some meal tips that you and your significant other can enjoy. This is the most romantic day in the calendar, and everything from food to the clothes you wear must be in the romance mood.

Cooked meals are better than home foods. 

The best meals for your valentine date are those that you will be able to make yourself or with your lover. There are several recipes to try, but as much as you would like to stick to the usual valentine day meals, you should also consider the favorite meals of your lover. You can try lamb or beef steak along with smashed potatoes and salad dish for example if your lover is a fun of these foods. Red wine will be the icing on the cake, complementing the red meat. If he or she is a fan of Italian cuisine, you can make a pasta dish of your choice, add Italian bread and salad, and complete the meal with wine. Whichever meal you make; it should be three-course.

Cook in-the-mood foods. 

You are in the romantic mood, so cook romantic foods. Specifically, go for chocolate inspired desserts. Chocolate covered strawberries are a good example here. Other examples include brownie tart, chocolate sheet cake, and chocolate layer cake, to name but a few. If you can prepare Flirtini cocktail, then why not try it? You can look for ideas online if you get stuck. These desserts will add pleasure and satisfaction to your lover as if the Heavenly angels have already shown them the direct way to Paradise.

Simple meals. 

It is good to be both adventurous and kinky during Valentine’s Day, but simple meals like lasagna, Caesar salads, fried chicken and mashed potatoes are great for this day. They are both delicious and easy to prepare. This is not the time to cook the foods you have never cooked or to implement the ideas of your friends. It is a time to prepare what you love to eat and what is romantic to you. Once your meal is ready, whipping out candle sticks around it rather than switching on the lights will add color to the already good package.

Make enough food for both of you. 

Cooking too little food will be a big mistake. Cook food that is either just enough for the two of you or more. At this time, you already know how much food your lover eats so you should prepare more than the average intake, just in case he or she has more appetite for food on that day.

In summary, food is very important on Valentine’s Day. Some people spent a lot of money buying gifts and forget to buy or cook good food for their loved ones. Food should actually be the priority since it will set you in the mood. It is worth noting that Valentine food is not just any food. It should be centered on the favorite food items for your lover and romantic food items.
