Today I’ve rounded up a few unique Valentine’s Day gifts for the nature lover in your life. Are YOU the nature lover in your life? Ha—nothing wrong with buying yourself a neat sweet treat.
These gifts will do your heart good, both buying and gifting them. And many of these gifts will keep on giving.
Yes, with Valentine’s Day only five days away, I should have posted this earlier. Oh well. Gift-giving is a good thing no matter the day.
Valentine’s Day Gifts for the Nature Lover
Love from The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.
For fans of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this LOVE book is so stinking cute! It was published in 2015, but like all of Eric Carle’s distinctive books, it’s timeless. Perfect for the person who makes your heart flutter—no matter their age.
A Bouquet of Dried Lavender
Whole Foods sells these wonderful bouquets of dried lavender. John bought me a bunch months ago, and its lovely aroma is still going strong.
Love-in-a-Mist is a hardy annual and a favorite in cut flower arrangements! A package of seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds is only $3.00. The fall seed pods are stunning too!
Floating Heart Paper Weight
These floating heart paper weights from Uncommon Goods are extra special. Dried wildflowers suspended in real gold—now that’s fancy.
U.S. National Parks Scratch Off Poster
A scratch off anything is fun in my opinion. Don’t you agree?
Seriously, I want to get myself a US National Parks poster and start visiting all the places I’ve never been. There’s so much gorgeous nature to see in our very own country.
Local CSA Subscription
A Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscription is a great way for consumers to benefit from locally grown fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk, meat, flowers, etc. while helping area farmers. This is what farm to table is really about.
City Bonfire Kits
Even though we may love nature, we may not always be able to build a bonfire at home. These City Bonfire kits bring the campfire to your backyard. Roast a marshmallow while stargazing at home. Yes, please.
Garden for Wildlife Gift Card
When you give a Garden for Wildlife gift card, your sweetie will be planting with purpose. Choose native plants for a particular state or area of the country and know you are helping nature.
Garden Beauty Stamps!
USPS Stamps make a great gift for the letter-writer in your life. Dozens of interesting designs are available including several for the nature lover.
Membership or Donation to your favorite Botanical Garden
A Friend Membership at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is $50. A Senior Friend (65+) Membership is $40. This gift comes with benefits galore like area nursery discounts, free or reduced cost workshops, and an incredible reciprocal membership program.

Plant a Tree!
I’ve donated to OneTreePlanted before and love that this company plants trees in areas across the globe where trees are needed the most. One dollar buys one seedling! Buy in honor of someone or just do it because trees = life.
I’ll stop here with my ideas, but I could go on and on with Valentine’s Day ideas for nature lovers.
Fresh flowers are beautiful and always appreciated, but the truth is a bouquet of roses will end up in the compost lickety-split. The gifts mentioned above will keep giving and giving and giving, many for generations.
Grace Grits and Gardening
Farm. Food. Garden. Life.
All great gift ideas for someone special or for one’s self. Maybe some Gracie note cards. 😊
I love the smell of lavender too. I have a soft eye mask pillow stuffed with lavender. I like to sniff it sometimes just for a mood lifter. Lol

We have some lavender lotion that is great for relaxing at bedtime.
Dorothy Johnson says
Great suggestions beyond the usual Valentine gifts and none to make the recipients fat. I especially like the Hungry Caterpillar book, lavender and stamps.
Talya Tate Boerner says
Yes, I was trying to think outside the chocolate box:)
“Love in a Mist” was a favorite of mine back in Wyoming. And once it turned to seed pods you never had to ever buy seeds if you just saved the many it produces. I’ll have to revisit that one! I still haven’t figured out gardening in Arkansas but, that takes time!
Cousin Ken says
We’re Aunt Rena and Uncle Rosie your grandparents on your mothers side? By the way I am about half way through Gene and am enjoying the book.
Talya Tate Boerner says
My grandparents were Frances and Reven Creecy. Aunt Rena and Frances were sisters. I’m glad you are enjoying Gene!
