7. Seasonal locally-grown florals are always a great option

Who doesn’t love a beautiful bouquet of blooms? Seasonal, locally grown flowers is a more sustainable choice.  Some common seasonal flowers in Mauritius in February include frangipani, hibiscus, bird of paradise, and bougainvillea. If you’d like to go for the classic roses but want to keep your impact on the planet low, pay attention to source roses that are locally grown and not imported. Roses are not usually blooming in February in Mauritius, they are also often grown using chemicals and pesticides which can harm the environment and require a lot of water to grow. Consider also the amount of plastic wrapping flowers come in too. Choose a potted plant instead and it will also last longer!  

> Purchase from your local florist. 

> Follow one of those very active Facebook groups to purchase and sell flowers: this one or this one

> You can also order online choosing from our list of online flower delivery services in Mauritius

8. Handmade crafts 

Just because you’re an adult now, it doesn’t mean you can’t still make your own Valentine’s cards. This doesn’t cost much and is very meaningful. You could also write a good old-fashioned love letter or a poem.  If you’re really not keen on making your own, search for handmade gifts “made in Mauritius”. You’ll find some on Y Craftastic Gifts for example. And if you’re willing to spoil your girlfriend or wife, you can’t really go wrong with handmade jewelry.
