So, whether you’re shopping for one of the girls this Galentine’s Day or for your partner for Valentine’s Day, we want to make it a bit easier for you. Our natural beauty gift guide will help you make a loved one feel special and pampered this February.

Natural gifts for her
ILIA Beauty Liquid Light Serum Highlighter
We had to mention ILIA Beauty here, as their current campaign ‘Between Us’ centres on appreciating the connections and shared things that make our real-life relationships special. The brand’s unique selling point is their combination of high performance makeup with natural skin-loving ingredients. We love this highlighter because of its ability to give that much-wanted dewy glow, whilst protecting against UV light and pollution. Its serum-like consistency melts into skin for a natural shine and there are also three colours for all skin tones.
Abel Cobalt Amber Eau de Parfum
We all know that perfume is the perfect gift to show someone you love them, so only the best will do. Abel, whose mission is to create the world’s best natural perfume, fits the bill. The brand’s 100% natural cobalt amber perfume is an oriental mix of bright pink pepper, juniper berry and amber. The scent works with your natural body chemistry to create a unique scent that will evolve through the day then naturally fade away, so you know you are giving a personal gift.
Absolution Home Spa Set
We all deserve some pampering this year, therefore Absolution’s home spa beauty set can’t go amiss. The French skincare brand uses 99% naturally derived ingredients and over 50% certified organic ingredients, in order to get your skin to its best by restoring its natural ecosystem. Their revitalising spa set, with an exfoliating cream, purifying mask, hydrating mask and headband, is the perfect wholesome gift.
Natural gifts for him
Eym Mellow Candle
Eym creates 100% natural, British made candles, helping you avoiding the negative effects of synthetic fragrances that contain many chemicals. Their Mellow candle is made to be a deeply relaxing gift for him, with an earthy masculine scent. The fragrance has a positive effect on emotional wellbeing, with vetiver promoting tranquillity, alongside notes of lavender.
Edition On The Road Eau de Parfum
An Edition fragrance is a unique gift, with the brand producing small batches that vary in natural ingredients and take their inspiration from iconic works of literature. On The Road is a fragrance inspired by Jack Kerouac’s 1951 novel of the same name. It tells a story of desire to experience the counterculture of post-war America’s jazz scene. Its different notes are designed to take a loved one on a journey from New York City, through the cornfields of Mid-Western America, before reaching the forests of the Pacific Coast.
Alchemy Oils Earl Grey Beard Oil
Alchemy Oils do beard oils like no other brand, so you can gift not only a nourishing product but also a confidence boost. The earl grey beard oil contains the natural anti-depressant bergamot, plus is vegan, antibacterial and free from a long list of toxic ingredients, helping to improve hair and skin health. Hair growth and skin cell production are stimulated with natural ingredients like rosehip and avocado, and moisturise is provided with argan and coconut oils.
Natural gifts for both
Verdant Alchemy Breathe In Bath Salts
The bathing experience is made even more indulgent with Verdant Alchemy’s breathe in bath salts, which promote calm. The salts are full of natural, plant-based minerals that will rest, refuel and balance the body. Immune-boosting thyme and Epsom salt and stress-relieving eucalyptus, lemon and bergamot are among the ingredients that help cleanse the body and mind.
