VALENTINES… Tink INSIDE the box this


with Seckingtons


a think about where that perfect red rose has come from. Tis year Seckingtons have come up with an alternative for the perfect Valentines gift. Why not pop in and create your own gift boxes from an array of luxurious products from Aveda.


It’s February which means one thing-


Valentines day is fast approaching, and the


romantics among us will be rushing out to shower our loved ones with


gifts, and for hundreds of thousands of the British public, bunches upon


bunches of traditional red roses.


In the UK the retail floristry industry is worth over £2 Billion a year and in the developed world we live in do we ever think about where these flowers come from or more importantly are they ethically produced? 83% of the world’s cut flowers come from Holland, Colombia, Ecuador and Kenya and as many of us go green, the question has to be what kind of environment are these workers sustaining?

Some of the best sellers include the stress fix gift box, this box contains a body moisturizer, bath salts and a roller ball lavender essential oil pen. Tis gorgeous range is scented with organic French lavender and is the perfect remedy for relieving stress, unwinding and filling your whole house with a beautiful aroma. Or how about treating your loved one to the grounding candle, a mix of vanilla, ginger and cassia which really is a treat for the senses.


As with all Aveda products you can be rest assured that they are responsibly sourced and ethically produced using factories run completely off wind power and are made with 100% natural ingredients many of which have certified organic.


However if you’re really stuck on what to buy that special someone then why not give a Seckingtons gift card. Credit the card with any amount and that way your loved one can treat themselves to any products or services at Seckingtons.


So let Seckingtons sort Valentines Day for you this February and buy a present which really is a gift for everyone.
