HALLMARK PRODUCT RED CARDS AND GIFTS- $2.50 and up [4]
The latest from the Project Red [4] campaign is this great line of recycled cards and gifts from Hallmark [4]. Available at most Hallmark stores, there’s a great variety of red (duh) greeting cards and other romantic gifts, all of which benefit people living with AIDS in Africa.

REINDEER GREETINGS E-CARDS FROM URBAN REVISION- $0.99 each [5]
Our friends at Urban Revision [6] have a great new e-card company, the proceeds of which benefit Architecture for Humanity [7]. They’ve teamed up with local designers and artists to bring you some eye-catching and downright gorgeous e-cards, which are way cooler than the usual cartoony e-cards we’re used to seeing.

DAGOBA CHOCOLATE- $3/bar [8]
Valentine’s Day could easily be called Reason-To-Eat-Chocolate Day, and we love organic options like Dagoba [8], which is readily available at retailers like Whole Foods.

TERRA NOSTRA CHOCOLATE- $4/bar [9]
Our other favorite chocolate choice is Terra Nostra [9], USDA Certified Organic, and a great combination of a century of family technique with modern technology to produce intense burst of flavor. Use their store finder [10] to locate retailers near you.

SEEDLINGS AND SAPLINGS AND SUCCULENTS, OH MY! [11]
Instead of the usual cut flowers this year, swing by your local nursery and pick up a real live plant for your honey. What better than some plantable flora represent your “growing” love?!
