And there are several others here. (And don’t be put off by their suggestion that you order by 7 February … you can print a card for your loved one at home or you can order an ecard that’ll be sent straight away.) Concern Worldwide also have a sideline in persuasive language for their Valentine’s gifts: this gift has guac it all; this gift will lettuce help families grow nutritious food.

A funny, sustainable, thoughtful and transformative gift. What more could you want for your Valentine?
