Wallet-friendly Valentines' Day Ideas

It's February again and it's smelling like loooooooveeee! I’ve been seeing florists busy stocking up on their bouquets, and overpriced Valentines dinner packages have been spouting up all over Facebook. If you’re thinking you have to resort to either breaking your girlfriend/boyfriend’s heart or breaking your piggy bank, fret not! We've compiled a list of affordable date ideas just for you.

Tired of romantic (but expensive) candlelight dinners, and exhausted of the list of movies (ok to be honest, I worship Netflix now) to catch in theatres? It’s time to do something different!

Many aren’t aware but Madame Tussauds Singapore isn’t just a plain ol’ museum with wax figurines of famous people. Apart from the usual international celebrities, they have included many local celebrities like Fandi Ahmad, Zoe Tay and even Feng Tian Wei! Bring your date here and it’ll be the perfect opportunity to snap a few pictures to document this special Valentines Day. Hold on, that’s not all! At the end of the entire tour, you will be able to go on a romantic boat ride “Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride” which takes you through mock ups of iconic attractions in Singapore. Museums ain’t that boring afterall?

Love Actually, Emperor’s Romance and Apple of My Eye – these are the charming names of the delicious cheesecakes from Cat & The Fiddle (Trust me, I’ve tried them!). Who wouldn’t be happy to receive a cake for no reason at all? Plus, these cheesecakes come in a beautifully designed brown box that is sturdy enough for the clumsy ones to carry around without having to worry about destroying the cake. Let me assure you that this surprise will never go wrong!

You get 3 brownie points if you purchase a bouquet of flowers for your date, but you get 5 brownie points if you surprise your date with a bouquet of flowers and bring him/her to a quaint little café full of even more flowers!! Also, what better way to connect with your date than to escape from the hustle and bustle of Singapore and engage in a meaningful conversation over a plate of pasta, amongst beautiful flowers? Nobody Enjoys Being Ordinary… so be extraordinary instead! (Did anyone catch that? nEbO?)

There’s no denying that materialism has become a big part of Valentines’ Day and more are expecting to receive expensive gifts. However, money isn’t the only way to express your love for someone, in fact, being thoughtful can just be as impactful, if not, even more.

If you’re having trouble finding the right gift, here’s a piece of advice from us. There are two ways of finding the right gift and you can either be “recipient-centric” or “giver-centric”. Most people prefer to get gifts which are “recipient-centric” but a study has shown that there is greater meaning in giving gifts that reflect your own personality, rather than trying to impress the other by buying something you think they might like. If you are adventurous and are willing to try out new things, why not purchase an Electronic Dartboard for your partner and you both can spend date night learning and challenging one another! If you want to spice up your relationship a little, you can consider getting Love Vouchers to please your special someone. These are just two out of the many items that are available from Totally Hot Stuff and you might want to check them out!
