10 Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for You & Your Partner
1. Personalised Jewellery
Personalised jewellery is one of our favourite V-Day gift ideas! Splurge on something that will last with fine jewellery makers like Madly or artnashsg (maybe a necklace with the kids’ initials or something special to symbolise your love?). We also love Soami for their inexpensive personalised jewellery that can withstand the elements (workouts, showers, seawater – tried and tested!). Or find out what your birthstone is and get it in some earrings or an everyday ring from Lustre Jewellery. If you’re into crystals and healing gemstones, check out Green Gaea for their beaded necklaces!
2. A Box of Chocolates
Being encouraged to eat chocolate and desserts may be our favourite aspect of Valentine’s Day! A box of luxury chocolates is a fab Valentine’s Day gift idea, and you’ll find a ton of luxury chocolate makers here in Singapore from artisanal chocolatier Mr Bucket Chocolaterie to The Dark Gallery (who also offer beautiful macaron boxes) and rockstar confectioner Janice Wong.
You know what they say: scents trigger strong memories! So why not get a memorable fragrance so your significant other will always remember the special Valentine’s Day you’ve had? We love finding luxury perfume brands for a steal, so our top perfume online store picks are Beauty Fresh and Scentiq while Venus Beauty and Beauty Language are both physical stores with multiple locations islandwide – these stores usually stock luxury perfume brands at slightly discounted prices!
4. Lingerie & Loungewear
This one’s a Valentine’s Day gift for him as much as it is for you! 😉 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), Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty line with its ultra inclusive sizing options (and they ship to Singapore!), 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, from Rawbought, super cute printed PJs from Sleebbee and lovely lace robes from Bells & Birds.
5. Valentine’s Day Flowers
We know a lot of people still enjoy receiving flowers, so if your partner is in that camp then you should oblige! Note what kind of flowers they like (if they have a favourite) or focus on a colour scheme that’s right up their alley. Check out our Guide to The Best Florists in Singapore, many of them offering same-day delivery!
6. Games/Books for Couples
We’ve come a long way from the days of the Kama Sutra. Card games and fun books for couples are great for injecting a little excitement into your love life and to break away from the mundane day-to-day. We’ve been hearing rave reviews about the Intimacy Deck, which is a ‘card game’ of 150 prompts like ‘Describe our first kiss’ and ‘When was the moment you realised you fell in love with me?’ to hopefully inspire meaningful conversations between you two. There’s also the Couples Bucket List: 101 Fun, Engaging Dating Ideas, written by a relationship and dating expert, filled with date ideas categorised by theme, expert dating advice and more!
7. Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Spa or Staycation
Romantic setting (completely devoid of kid stuff), nice dinner, a bottle of wine… a staycation provides the chance to take a break from all the mess and noise at home and enjoy each other’s company. Find 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 Auriga Spa at Capella, Raffles Spa, Sofitel Spa at Sofitel Sentosa, Chi at Shangri-La, Aramsa Garden Spa in Bishan Park and Elements Wellness (Centrepoint) for a couples’ onsen retreat. You can also check out our roundup of fave facials in Singapore!
8. Valentine’s Day Romantic Picnic
When was the last time you had a picnic? Singapore has plenty of great picnic spots, and it can be a really romantic way to spend Valentine’s Day! Consider packing your favourite food (or get some delish takeaway like a luxurious grazing platter or tea time treats!) for a little one-on-one time at an idyllic park or quiet beach. Need some recommendations for a gorgeous picnic spot? We’ve rounded up all our favourite picnic places here!
9. Experiences to gift
An experience is a great zero-waste Valentine’s Day gift idea for you and your partner to create unforgettable memories. Depending on what you’re both into, you could book something adventurous, like a kayaking day trip, virtual reality or rage room; something more artsy like a guided art tour, pottery class or art jam session; or something more relaxing like a private yacht charter or dining with a private chef. We’ve got more ideas here!
10. Photo books
We love viewing pictures on our phones, but there’s nothing quite like looking through a physical album to reminisce happy memories and special moments from the past! A customised photo book is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift – fill it up with family photos, vacation memories, your favourite snaps of your wedding day… the possibilities are endless! Designing a photo book is a complete breeze with all the apps available these days. We’ve done the hard work by shortlisting all the places where you can order photo books in Singapore!
11. 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 for him or her.
12. Luxurious Bamboo Bedsheets
They’re for good sleep, silly! In all seriousness, there’s nothing better than getting a good night’s sleep together, and for that a set of bamboo bedsheets are a game changer especially in our hot and humid climate! There are plenty of local brands offering beautiful bamboo bedsheet sets now and they make great gifts for him and her, but some faves include organic bedding brands NakedLab, Sunday Bedding and SOJAO.
13. 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.
