Valentine’s Day in Singapore 101: All the deets
Buy flowers – even if she says no!
Who doesn’t love a beautiful bouquet of blooms? Do yourself a favour and order your flower delivery or chocolates at least a week in advance (you should be ordering it as soon as you read this!), so you’re not wasting the day scrambling to find something. Psst: we’ve also put together a guide to same-day flower delivery services if you’ve completely forgotten about 14 February.
You gotta feel date-ready
You’ll want your hair and skin to be on point – so book a last-minute facial and a lunchtime mani-pedi sesh. If you really want to feel smooth and sexy, free the fuzz at these top spots for hair removal.
Make dinner and drinks extra special
The quintessential Valentine’s dinner date might seem like a cliché, but we’ve sussed out a couple of romantic restaurants and bars so you don’t screw it up this year. All this doesn’t have to burn a huge hole in your wallet, especially since we’ve got a great variety.
Bring your A-game
Should your evening plans culminate in the horizontal tango, make sure you’ve picked out something elegantly scant from our favourite lingerie stores (and maybe even a little battery-operated backup – ahem, intimate adult toys) to spice things up in the bedroom.
Go ahead and try something different
Think a classic dinner date is too vanilla? Knock off work early if you can and do a sunset trek across scenic walking trails. Need more inspo? We’ve picked the best romantic spots for every type of couple, including museums, secluded sunrise and sunset spots and swanky rooftop bars. Even if you’re on a budget, fret not. We’re here to help you put your explorer’s hat on, the affordable way.
Singles can have fun too…

Have a fab Valentine’s Day in Singapore, y’all!
