Updated: Jan 17, 2018

February 14 is right around the corner — do you know what you’re getting your significant other?

  1. Your recipient gets a beautiful gift.
  1. Purse & Clutch gets to reinvest their profits into their small business.
  1. Men and women in other countries get dignified and sustainable jobs.

Rose Delight Candle from Candle Delirium

Can’t afford to whisk your significant other off for a romantic getaway? The Rose Delight candle from Candle Delirium is inspired by Turkish delight, a Middle Eastern sweet, and will envelop any room in rose, honey, and lemon. We’re sure Edmund from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe would approve of this gift choice.

Full Zip Micro and Poly Fleece Jacket from Earthletics

You know that warm feeling you get when you think of your significant other? They probably feel the same way thinking about you, but you should give them this jacket anyway — for those times that warm feeling isn’t enough to keep you from freezing in sub-30 degree weather.
