If you're single, you can check out our article that has 13 fun ways to spend this day solo but if you're attached, here's a list of 10 Awesome date ideas for a hot and sizzling Valentines Day in Singapore!
I'll lift you and you'll lift me and we'll both ascend together ~
Since yoga is such a popular exercise nowadays, why not try your hands at it too? Acro yoga is a great option for couples because it involves pair work throughout the class. You'll be building lots of trust as the base (person supporting) and flyer (person above) have to time their moves in order to accomplish the poses.
It will definitely be a laughter-filled experience that will leave you sweaty, smiling, and showing off your cute couple yoga pictures on IG.
Chocolate says I love you so much better than words
Instead of giving your loved ones the typical flowers and chocolates, why not make chocolates together? It'll definitely be a memory for the books, minus the messy movie-style food fights.
We hear that chocolate is a pretty good aphrodisiac as well... so it may make your Valentines night more hot and steamy with all the chocolate play earlier in the day.
To declare your love, get a tattoo. We're talking temporary of course. There are stick on tattoos, temporary sticker tattoos, henna tattoos, and recently, jagua tattoos. It is a natural fruit-based ink tatoo that resembles a real tattoo so you can rock your couple tattoos for just about two weeks.
You can check out some examples of jagua tattoos on Instagram at @henn.drawn and @outandink. Warning: you might get addicted.
You smell like love.
Everyone is getting into more meaningful items sans the unnecessary material. Examples include fashion brands trying to go greener, companies being more sustainable, and even the Marie Kondo movement. So instead of buying your partner a cosmetic or perfume gift, think about how you can make it an experience that will be more memorable.
For instance, Je t'aime has a couple perfume workshop that allows you to custom make your own fragrance. Imagine making a scent that both you and your partner love, and that only the two of you have!
You just pop into my head at the most random times... and I love it!
Get your loved one and yourself in a relaxed V-day mood with a head spa at the salon. It relaxes the mind and prepares you for the rest of the hectic events planned for the day (if any). And if not, you'll still be getting a nice pamper session.
We are preparing a list of top hair salons for awesome head spas in Singapore and here's a preview of our favourites
We can't talk about head spa without mentioning Branche Japanese Hair Salon. The fully Japanese staff here ensures that the experience starts the moment you enter with authentic Japanese snacks and even champagne! Sip on that bubbly and enter into dreamland as the stylists work their magic to relieve the stress that have been building up over the past few weeks.
Following its revamp, the Bund recently welcomed a new Taiwanese stylist whose head massage is simply heavenly! Her massage is absolutely on point and is certainly one of the best we've experienced.
Combine that with AVEDA's signature scalp ritual and you've got an irresistible head spa you must try.
FYI, it is located beside Aramsa Spa and so is a natural follow up after the body massage!
This Chaebol-worthy Korean head spa is among the most luxurious we've tried as it includes foot massage, hand massage and of course scalp massage with top quality hair and beauty products!
Choose your fantasy and turn it into reality.
Play hooky and stay underneath the covers?
Prepare breakfast in bed, cue up an all-day lounge-a-thon, and order in for dinner. This will be an ultimate relaxation trip with a Valentines Day weekend. Take time to get away from your busy lives, work, and the bustling city as you cuddle up with each other.
Find restaurants too busy or overpriced during Valentine's Day? Open your own! Just for a night, you can be the chef and server for your significant other. A home-cooked version of their favourite dish will definitely warm their hearts.
It doesn't have to be a complicated feast or a super delicate pastry. One pot pastas, soups, and stews are easy to make and still taste fantastic.
I just want to lick you all over.
Just remember to prepare some dessert afterwards ;)
You jump, I jump!
