As the world celebrates Saint Valentine, it’s time to up the ante and plan an extraordinarily over-the-top romantic date.
Forget the usual flowers and chocolates. Here are our five recommendations for unique experiences in Singapore that will sweep your lover off their feet and into your heart:
Made with Love
Make something together. The talented leathersmiths at Kultskins Handcrafted offer private workshops for couples and corporate groups to create your own personalised leather products including wallets, keychains and card holders. Make it more special and choose from a range of exotic leathers . Monogram it with your partner’s name or a sweet message and you will have made a gift that lasts longer than a dozen roses ever could.

Sips of Love
Cap off your romantic evening with cocktails and intimate conversations. The husband and wife duo at Indigenous Bartender Headquarter (IBHQ) know a thing or two about getting their guests into the mood with some tasty tipples. This year, they’ve crafted a special Valentine’s Day menu that exudes romance with every sip . A secluded hideout located on the second level of a shophouse along North Bridge Road, you will be greeted by owners Kamil Foltan and Zurina Bryant (both experienced bartenders and consultants) as they shake up cheeky cocktails this Valentine’s Day. There’s no easier way to drop a big hint than with cocktail names like “She is the One” and “Let’s Do It Together”!
