What do lip balm, bun warmers, and straws have in common? Well, they make great gifts for your special Valentine. Finding gifts that are both functional and help to protect the environment can be a challenge. But, we have found the perfect gifts for your Valentine. Let’s talk about Lip Balm from FOUR: Organics, Bun Warmers from Jack & Mary Designs, and Re-usable straws from Sukk Straws.
About FOUR: Organics
Our mission is passionate yet simplistic. Let us return back to basics, when dyhydroxinathium and red dye #4 was only used to paint your car. We grow tired of trying to pronounce chromiunylothum or wondering what its’ purpose is. Hence, we created FOUR:. Skincare made with only four organic sustainable ingredients.
This Organic Lip Balm contains only four organic ingredients to ensure your lips are safely protected. Made from a blend of Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Peppermint Oil. No need to worry about applying a product that contains chemicals, fillers, preservatives, and alcohol. Packed in a three (3) piece set, this Lip Balm will have your lips in shape and protected in no time.
I love how soft it is to apply. From the first application, lips feel pampered and you can smell the peppermint oil for a long time (which I like). It stays on your lips too. I always have a mug of something in my hand and most of the time my lip balms end up on the rim of my mug. And while I can feel a little of the balm on my mug, my lips are not lacking in coverage. I like not having to reapply it all the time.

About Jack & Mary Designs
Founder and Designer, Marilyn Robertson began the company in 2004 with bags and purses, until a custom order brought back memories of her mother recycling clothing into amazing new items. Jack & Mary Designs uses sweaters that would have otherwise ended up in landfills and upcycles the wool into practical fashions with style, and has added different accessories to include scarves, hats, bun warmer skirts, and the famous Memory Mittens.
Sweaters are cut, and colors and patterns are creatively placed together in a pleasing manner that is then sewn into a finished product. Even unattractive sweaters can be repurposed it into something beautiful.
It started with a memory. When our customer asked if we could repurpose the wool sweaters her late mother wore to her sister’s Olympic ski races, we were inspired. To honor her late mother, we carefully upcycled these cherished sweaters by cutting them into parts and thoughtfully pieced them together to create handmade mittens that would help keep her mother always by her side.
Through the Memory Mittens program you can recycle the sweaters you once loved, either worn by you or someone close, and turn them into something precious you will continue to use for winters to come including: Mittens, Hats, Headbands, Scarves, Bun Warmer Skirts and Christmas Stockings.
These skirts are super warm and provide a nice layer of protection between you and cold weather. Slide them on over your leggings or tights for a dressier outfit. Shirts are available in dozens of designs and colors. They are the perfect addition to your clothing closest and they can change up an outfit quickly.
How cute are these skirts! Our daughter Rebekah loves to wear hers when she is running errands. She likes being able to slip one over her tights after working out without having to change clothes.

Now that most restaurants are not offering straws, having your own makes life easier. Personally, I like using a straw for cold beverages. And when I have the little ones with me, we need straws for their drinks. Not really a paper straw fan, so these re-usable straws are perfect for our busy lives. We are on the go most days and now we make sure to pack our straws along with our cups and snacks.
