First and foremost, your fur-friends should have a comfortable place to lay their heads. They may be exhausted from all the family that visits and need a place of their own. Consider our certified organic pet bed. Made with a certified organic cotton cover and an organic buckwheat-hull bladder, it makes the perfect pet bed to cuddle up on. Sizes available are small round, small square, and large square. Your local retailer will help with availability and pricing.
Whether you have a dog, cat, ferret, or other furry friend, they all have one thing in common: they love their toys. It can be a simple ball, an empty box, or a small stuffed animal. Regardless of your pet’s favorite toy, the simple gesture of handing over that toy can make a pet’s day. If you celebrate the spirt of giving this holiday season, remember to give a little something to your four-legged friends. They’re celebrating too!
Treats can provide another quick way to their hearts, through their stomachs of course. There is a wide range of healthy, organic foods out there for them. Everything is covered from treats to main meals to special dinners. Much like humans though, you don’t want to overdo it.
Love comes in many forms including four-legged, kissable, snuggable, and lovable forms. Cherish every moment you have with your fur-friends and family this holiday season.

Before you rush out and buy those last-minute Valentine’s gifts from the grocery store, here are a few ideas to keep your Valentine’s personal and eco-friendly.
Homemade Cards are the Best!
Use recycled paper to create a unique and one-of-a-kind heartfelt card. You can even add some flare with objects from around the house, like buttons and ribbons, or add a list of things that you love most about the person.
Choose Potted Over Cut Flowers
Give a potted plant rather than a bouquet. This way your loved one can enjoy them longer and even plant them in their garden.
Chocolate Makes a Delicious Option
Don’t just pick a heart-shaped box that was conveniently located by the checkout line in the store. Give a box of scrumptious organic chocolates.
Skip the Restaurant
Avoid the crowds and create a delicious dinner at home together! This is a fun way to spend the evening, and you can even pick your own menu, music, and entertainment.
Pick a Unique Gift
Give a gift that symbolizes your love, like planting a tree. This is a gift that will give for years to come!
Check out vintage stores to find a special one-of-a-kind vintage gift. Retro is in!
However you choose to spend your Valentine’s Day, be sure to make it special!
