Eco Flowers – If flowers are a must for you, then think about the carbon footprint of the flowers you are giving.  Traditional flowers are grown with a very large amount of chemicals in less than healthy work environments and then flown traditionally from South America.  Opt to go with organic fair-traded flowers if they are a must for you!   Get A Free Vase And Free Chocolates When You Order Roses Now At OrganicBouquet.com!

    Oh my word! I love all your suggestions! You had me at “organic chocolate,” but I really love the idea of plantable cards and seed bombs as well – that’s a gift that keeps on giving :). Great suggestions!
