Ocelot chocolate bars

No Valentine’s Day is complete without chocolate! For chocolate with heart, check out Ocelot. All its products are handmade, organic and come in plastic-free packaging. Chocolate bars are available in a range of mouth-watering flavours, from blood orange to black cherry. Too hard to pick your favourite? Then go for the chocolate library, a collection of eight delicious bars. Chocolate bars are £5.50, and the chocolate library is £40.

BloomPost seed bombs

Like chocolates, flowers are an essential part of Valentine’s Day. This year, send the person who brightens your world some colourful seed bombs – so they can watch their flowers grow and grow. They can scatter them in their garden and collect beautiful blooms for years to come. Each box has nine seed bombs with wildflower seeds, including mallow, poppy and cornflower. The seed bombs cost £14.95 and come as a letterbox gift, posted directly to your loved one.

Urban Nature Maps

Our customer Urban Good offers a range of maps that show urban areas as cities of nature. Their green and blue spaces – woodlands, parks, nature reserves, playing fields, coastlines and rivers – are brought to the forefront, making these maps something quite unique. Urban Nature Maps will make you see cities differently to how you have before, as places to enjoy nature and to protect it. Why not use one to plan a romantic walk on Valentine’s Day? Prices start from £9.99.

Tag a tree

Surprise someone with a tree-mendous gift this Valentine’s Day. The Heart of England Forest – which Dennis Maps supports – lets you tag a tree with a personalised message, for £35. You’ll also get a certificate, location reference and map to find your tree. Alternatively, you can dedicate a tree (£12) or plant a tree (£150). If you choose the latter, your loved one will get to visit the forest and plant their tree, a pretty special experience. Whichever option you choose, you’ll help maintain the forest for generations to come.

Inner tube earrings

These inner tube earrings make the prettiest present. They’re lovingly handmade in Priormade’s workshop, crafted from bicycle inner tubes that would otherwise be disposed of. The lightweight earrings are designed to look like feathers. Several colours are available, including gold, silver and blue. Each pair comes presented in a recycled gift box, along with the tale of how their inner tube popped. Earrings start from £18.

Sustrans regional cycle maps

Is your loved one a keen cyclist? Then gift them a regional cycle map from Sustrans, a Dennis Maps customer. The maps can be used to explore the National Cycle Network and local routes by bike. They’re available for all regions of the UK, so you can choose one that covers a local area, or somewhere they want to explore further afield. Handily, the maps are made from recyclable Polyart, which is tear and water-resistant too. And the best bit? Everything you buy from Sustrans supports the charity to make walking and cycling easier for everyone. Printed maps cost £7.99.

Refill X Chilly’s Bottle
