10 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for You & Your Partner
Start your Valentine’s Day gift search with a greeting card! Simply Say offers over a hundred truly unique and exciting cards, from beautifully illustrated romantic designs to cute, quirky artwork with kitschy greetings for a little V-Day humour. Personalising cards is super easy too – just select your preferred design and you can type out your message, upload photos and include emojis before previewing the final design. Or you can leave the card blank to be handwritten when it arrives at your doorstep! Simply Say also has a great selection of greeting cards for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Mother’s Day or any other occasion (there’s even a Singlish category!). We love how environmentally responsible they are too, with all cards being print to order and are 100% recyclable.

Satisfy your sweet tooth this Valentine’s Day with a selection of cakes, cookies and chocolates from Little House of Dreams! Their little Be My Valentine Cookie Decor Kit is oh-so-cute with eight assorted heart cookies, icing bags and sprinkle pouches for some fun decorating – and will surely get the kids involved! We’ve also got our eyes on the For My Chocolate Lover Gift Box, complete with a lovely ceramic terrazo mug that can be personalised, a bar of Fossa Chocolate, six macarons (vanilla, salted caramel and chocolate), a heart shape cookie lolly and LHOD’s special homemade hot chocolate with mini marshmallows… yum!
6. Luxurious Chocolates
Being encouraged to eat chocolate may be our favourite aspect of Valentine’s Day! You’ll find a ton of luxury chocolate makers here in Singapore, from artisanal chocolatier Mr Bucket Chocolaterie to The Dark Gallery and rockstar confectioner Janice Wong.
7. Lingerie & Loungewear
We love that our little island is filled with homegrown lingerie designers, including Perk by Kate, Susy + Bae and the playful, size-inclusive I’M IN. Of course there’s also La Perla (at Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya), Victoria’s Secret (Mandarin Gallery), or the online lingerie emporium Avec Amour, which carries everything from comfy PJs to bondage couture. There’s also a ton of pretty loungewear out there, with a new V-Day collection by new local brand Rawbought, super cute printed PJs from Sleebbee and lovely lace robes from Bells & Birds.
8. Personalised Jewellery
Personalised jewellery make great V-Day gifts! Not sure what to get? Splurge on something that will last with local jewellery makers like Cosmic Gemstones or artnashsg (maybe a necklace with the kids’ initials or something special to symbolise your love?). Or find out what your birthstone is and get it in some earrings or an everyday ring from Lustre Jewellery. If you’re into horoscopes and zodiacs, check out Green Gaea for their zodiac necklaces!
9. Wines & Bubbly
We are so happy Valentine’s Day falls in February (after Dry January) so that means it’s the perfect time to sip on some bubbly! Be sure to check out our guide to Singapore wine shops and websites if you want to get a great deal when ordering a bottle of something special.
10. Spa or Staycation
Romantic setting (completely devoid of kid stuff), nice dinner, a bottle of wine… a staycation is the chance to simply look at each other for once and enjoy each other’s company. Find even more staycation inspiration here!
If you can’t get away for a whole night to do a staycation, why not book in for a couple’s massage? Some of our fave spas include ESPA on Sentosa, Auriga Spa at Capella and Aramsa Garden Spa in Bishan Park. All of the above also featured in our roundup of fave facials in Singapore!
11. Intimate Toys
If you’re looking for something to spice things up in the bedroom, this one’s gonna bring a smile to your face. Say goodbye to tacky, offensive intimate toys and say hello to the chic offerings on Smile Makers and Pleasure Hobby. Thank us later.
