Last minute Valentine

We decided to take pity on all you stragglers. You know who you are, you forgot to order something off Gaiam for your Valentine and now you're thinking about whether he or she would be satisfied with a card. Don't worry; you can be creative even if you live nowhere near your favorite earth-friendly gift store.

Yummy fondue

If you haven't already stocked up on an assortment of organic fruits, take a few minutes to pick up your sweetie's favorites. You might also need some other ingredients. This recipe from About.com can be made as is or you can use your favorite substitutes.
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 2 tbsp soy milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
Optional
  • 1/4 cup flavored liqueur (Kahlua)
All you do next is melt the margarine, soy milk and chocolate before mixing in the remaining ingredients and transferring to a fondue pot. If you don't have a pot, pre-dip all the cut up fruit and arrange it on a tray.

Bring the spa to them

If you're not at home in the kitchen - or really want to make the day special - put your inner masseuse to work for a Valentine's Day to remember. If you don't have any Good Clean Love products, grab some olive oil out of the cupboard and get busy setting the mood. Olive oil mixed with avocado can make a great facial, while mixing it with rosemary can soothe aching muscles.
