Work some Valentine’s Day magic
So you’ve missed the memo and suddenly the dreaded Valentine’s Day deadline is staring you in the face, but horror of horrors you have nothing planned yet!
Fret not, all hope’s not lost! Skip the cliched fancy restaurants and overused romantic spots and still get to spend a lovely Valentine’s Day without paying through your nose!
These 10 activities are your best bet for making Valentine’s Day happen this week.
1. Have a La La Land moment at hidden jazz bars
Have your own Golden Globe worthy moment at The Singapore Jazz Club, a swanky jazz bar dishing out crowd-pleasing pop-jazz tunes worthy of a local La La Land spin-off. Expect a good mix of local artistes with the likes of Alicia Pan and other guest stars like Jasmine Chen from Shanghai and the usual beverage options from whiskey to wine.
No reservations needed, so you’ll be just fine rocking up at the eleventh hour. Don’t expect any fancy special effects or dancing on air, but who’s to say you won’t find your own jazz-loving Ryan Gosling or Emma Stone?
|The Singapore Jazz Club
Address: The Singapore Jazz Club, 2/F The Sultan, 101 Jalan Sultan, Singapore, 199002
Opening Hours: Thursday to Sunday, 9pm to 1am
2. Take a romantic stroll without breaking a sweat at Gardens by the Bay
With most restaurants booked out by now and your optimism of finding the perfect venue fast fading, it’s always a good idea to go back to basics and literally go for a romantic walk in the park, though the weather is always a huge turn-off for some.
For just S$22 you’ll gain access to BOTH domes at Gardens by the Bay to help fulfill the romance factor sans the sweaty armpits!
You can spend all day admiring the flowers (and your date) and taking all the pictures you want with cute photo spots located all over the Flower Dome. Just thank your lucky stars it’s all air-conditioned – no one likes a sweaty date!
|Gardens by The Bay
Price: S$22 for entry to both the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest

3. Have a bouquet delivered on the same day at A Better Florist

There’s two scenarios you’ll typically encounter when arranging for same-day flower delivery: 1) prices are sky-high and/or 2) you’re limited to basic bouquet choices your partner would disapprove of.
A Better Florist is every procrastinator’s best friend with a range of gorgeous hand-crafted bouquets on offer and (here’s the best part) a FREE 90-minute delivery! This means you officially have 3 days from now to place your order and still have it delivered in time for the big V-Day event.
Prices are also kept to pretty wallet-friendly prices with the beautiful The Lavender Valentine’s Day bouquet with 13 roses costing just S$138 all-in! Considering flower prices go through the roof during this period, this just makes these flowers even more irresistible.

Treat your date to an indulgent 4-course meal and gorgeous views of Sentosa and the Singapore cityscape suspended up to 300ft above sea level! Nothing better than long conversations and sweet nothings whispered over char-grilled Angus beef and wine!

7. Be there to catch her when he/she falls at The Rink
If you’ve watched movies like Crazy Stupid Love, there’s nothing more romantic than skating hand-in-hand across a frozen lake in the middle of New York City, but where Singapore lacks in frozen lakes it makes up for with the massive The Rink at JCube.
This works out well if you’re a seasoned skater so you can impress your date with some serious ice-kachang ice-shaving skills, but if you’re not quite Kim Yuna from the Winter Olympics we suggest holding tightly onto the sides of the rink – we’re sure your partner won’t judge.
|The Rink @ JCube
Price: From S$14
Address: 2 Jurong East Central 1, Level 3, JCube, Singapore 609731
8. Enjoy evening tipples aboard the Singapore Flyer
Rooftop bars may offer good views of the Singapore cityscape but nothing beats sipping on champagne from the comfort of your own pod aboard the Singapore Flyer!
Choose from champagne with chocolates or Singapore Sling with nuts for a leisurely 30-min ride in a specially-designed capsule. If you’re not quite into alcohol no worries! Swap it out for a mocktail and have yourselves a beautiful evening soaking up the glittering lights of our gorgeous Garden City.
| Singapore Flyer
Price: From S$69

9. Go on a picnic that’s been prepared for you
The worst thing about preparing for a picnic probably isn’t the heat or deciding what to wear, but preparing and then dragging the copious amounts of negligent bite-sized food needed to make a picnic what it is.
Heaven’s Bloom & Baskets offers pre-prepared picnic baskets that you can keep complete with hipster utensils, a bottle of moscato and REAL food! Think chicken, tuna, cheese and crackers and even olive and tomato dips for that added hipster-ness. Simply pick up your basket and whisk your partner off to your own special locations!
Psst we recommend these understated nature reserves.
