My Last-Minute Valentine

Hello, is it me you’re looking for? If you need to make a big impression this Valentine’s Day without putting a dent in your savings….and fast!…then yes, you are looking for me, the Value Guru.

Thanks to The Whole Deal® value guide, you can create a Valentine’s Day celebration that won’t leave you in the red. Here’s a simple list of three must-haves to make tomorrow extra special.

1. Whole Trade® Flowers. Pick these beautiful, high-quality flowers and support the well-being of farm workers and the environment. Our Whole Trade® Guarantee delivers better wages and working conditions, environmental responsibility, community development and 1% of sales to Whole Planet Foundation®. So you’re buying the best you can for yourself, your community, your world and your valentine.

2. The card. The cost of love might be debatable but our free fruity cut-out cards aren’t…just click, print and share! We think you’ll love them berry much.

3. Treats for two. Four words. Red. Wine. Strawberries. Cream. Together they create one delectable dessert for under $4 a serving. Tip: these spiced, red-wine-infused strawberries can be made ahead of time, or served immediately if you prefer your strawberries firmer.

Searching for a date night dessert for the heart conscious? Show you care about your sweetheart’s health with this creamy vegan Chocolate Pudding – no added oil or refined sugar!

Make Love Last

Just because February 14th must come to an end, showering your valentine with love shouldn’t. Homemade potpourri like our Lavender Rose Potpourri is a great way to preserve roses and memories. You can fill sachets to scent drawers, place potpourri in a bowl to add fragrance to a room or give it as a gift.
