Maybe your “Crunchy Valentine” is totally OK with no gifts and no date; I know I am. Maybe she expects you to go all out. I don’t know her and I don’t know you, but I do know, if you are here, she is “crunchy” and you are wanting to do something that will show her you are paying attention to her constant “educating” in the “crunchy arts”.
Of course even if she is perfectly OK with nothing, what “Crunchy Valentine” wouldn’t enjoy an evening of pampering, or at least a few good “crunchy” gifts.
So start your evening with some healthy, crunchy, chocolate and maybe some flowers, proceed to a bath drawn up with some relaxing bath mixes, cover her in her new soft, organic, robe before giving her a sensual massage with the new essential oils, then proceed to a room with a new mood enhancing diffuser filled with romantic, sensual, essential oils, and a bed made with a new bamboo fiber blanket, followed by a romantic massage. Sounds perfect huh?
However, you aren’t the “crunchy” one and you have no idea where to start to find all those crunchy gifts; no worries. I’ve got you covered; below you will find plenty of “crunchy” ideas and links to some awesome “crunchy” gifts that any “Crunchy Valentine” will LOVE.
WHAT are you going to do? Organic, vegan chocolate of course:
Here are 3 choices
The “Crunchiest” of the 3 choices is this “Love Chocolate” Organic, rich, raw chocolate with coconut sugar and pure vanilla. This is a delicious and mood lifting dark chocolate.
The close second on the “crunch” meter is this “ChocoLove” organic, dark chocolate bar. I rate it second, ONLY because it contains cane sugar, which is a little more like plain white sugar, and the soy lecithin. It is still a fairly safe and crunchy choice. After all, it is Valentine’s Day and this is a TREAT!
If you are more of the traditional type, this 3rd choice was created just for you. This timeless, yet organic, chocolate assortment , is dairy and gluten free and certified organic. I am not certain what type of sugar this one contains, nor do I know the other ingredients, therefore it rates 3rd on my crunchy chocolate meter. I haven’t actually tried this one, so I can only tell you what the description says.
Next stop: a nice, warm, relaxing bath with some great candles lighting the room.
This first choice, “Organic Coconut Wax Wearable Candle”, can also be used as a great all over body moisturizer, talk about bang for your buck.
Or for a romantic, relaxing, lavender scent try this heavenly “Lavender Beeswax Candle”.
The Yogi Honey Lavender Stress Tea is so mild and flavorful that I add nothing to it. It is one of my all time favorites.
Another choice, I’ve never tried, but this “Valentine Tea Blend” looks promising, sounds delicious and has a chocolate added. mmm…. available in ready made tea sachets or you can always add extra points to your perfect score with a new “Tea Infuser” for that “Crunchy Valentine” in your life.
Then wrap her up in this soft, eco-friendly, “Genuine Turkish Cotton Unisex Bath Robe” for an added touch of luxury and care. She is sure to be impressed and know your paying attention when you add “eco-friendly” to the gift list.
After her nice relaxing bath and a cup of tea, you can really wow this “Crunchy Valentine” of yours, with a room lit by her new “AromaSoft Diffuser”. Out of my three different diffusers, this, is by far, my FAVORITE. You can change the light to many different colors or let it play through all the colors. It is super quiet and puts out a wonderful amount of mist; enough to fill a large room with whatever scent you have chosen. (be sure to choose something relaxing and sensual)
Speaking of oils, this Plant Therapy set is one of my ALL time favorites; it even includes the synergy “Sensual“; which can also be purchased alone if you are on a budget. Sensual, Relax, Cedarwood, or Lavender are definitely what you want to be diffusing on date night. My absolute favorite blend for relaxing is 3 drops of Cedarwood and 3 drops of Lavender in the diffuser. 😉 .
These oils are offered by Plant Therapy (HERE is their blog). They are completely pure and safe, when used correctly. They have been tested by third party sources and the Environmental Working Group. They are just as good as the two major brands and have a MUCH lower price tag. They also offere certified people on hand to answer all your questions.
If your wife is new to essential oils I would also highly recommend this guide to go with them. “Essential Oils Pocket Reference Guide”
Now, she is relaxed, the mood is set, the oils are diffusing, the lighting is perfect, and the bed is made, including this new “Marcini Bamboo Blanket“; what next?
MASSAGE!! Yes, release her tension and stress from the day in and day out. Whether she works too much outside the home or stays home and cares for the house and littles, she is TIRED and her muscles ACHE. Trust me men; there is nothing that is more appreciated and relaxing than a nice, sensual, massage.
Men, let me be blunt here, as much as you enjoy getting down to business, she enjoys the gentle, relaxing touch before hand. NOTHING, and I do mean NOTHING will put her in “the mood” quicker than being pampered with chocolate, a relaxing bath, fresh made bed, and massage. We are different, women can’t normally just go straight to “the act” after a long hard day; they need to relax, disconnect, and switch gears. The act of sex isn’t as much of a stress release for us as it is for you. For women, sex doesn’t cure the stress, the stress needs to melt away first and then we are ready to enjoy and release. That is just nature. 😉
So to help you out, let me offer my suggestion for an all natural “Organic Massage Oil“ in a light Bulgarian Rose scent that she is sure to love.Or you can opt for a more relaxing scent like this “Lavender Massage Oil” Either choice is sure to earn you many, many, good hubby points.
That’s it men! All you need to know. Ok, well maybe it isn’t all you need to know, but it is a really good start on impressing your crazy “Crunchy Valentine” this year.
She’ll LOVE being pampered and she will really love knowing that you have been listening. Even if you can’t pull off the entire date night scenario, any or all of it would certainly impress your “Crunchy Valentine” and win you “Husband of the Year” award. 🙂
