You are the muse; while your other half is inspired by the smallest, often-overlooked elements of everyday life. They appreciate the richness in colour, see beauty in the darkest days, and their perfect weekend usually includes a visit to the latest art exhibitions or newest galleries.
Let them express their innermost creative personas. Unrestrained by the boundaries of technicalities, channel their energies and emotions through the palette.
They remember your scent of choice from your very first date. They're sensitive, thoughtful and caring. Good for you, because that means you'll always be this adored by the kind and attentive love of your life.
Some say they have a childish innocence; but you know better.
They are slow to warm up but once you get into their inner circle, you have their fiercest loyalty for a lifetime. They make the best companions and you can always count on them through the ups and downs. Show you are equally committed and that you will also be there when they need you most.
Go the extra mile and demonstrate your sincerity with a handmade scrapbook, or be super extra and paint your favourite photo with them. Relive the special moments and show them their beauty through your lens.
Get your scrapbooking materials and sign up for workshops at Papermarket or prep your paint and canvas from Art Friend!
You know the drill – when they're down, bring them a slice of their favourite chocolate cake and see a smile spread across their faces. And of course, no better way to celebrate the smallest victories in life than more cake or sweets.
For more Japanese goodness from Hokkaido, head to Royce for truffles or try the unique potatochip chocolate! The perfect harmony of surprisingly contrasting tastes, a bit like our contrasting personalities.
If you’re feeling fancy like us, pick up a bottle of wine or some bubbly from Wine Connection.
5. The Literature Geek
Sentimental, emotional and romantic, these literature lovers have beautiful personalities and they appreciate their quiet moments. Make it a special day to remember.
Make a pot of tea and then cosy up under the covers together with a book from their favourite author. Recite poetry verses, discuss the plot and exchange notes. A perfect Valentine’s date and perhaps how we’d love to spend every other weekend.
Here’s a surprise they'll love – buy 12 books from different genres and wrap them up with a personal note to accompany each one. Let them unwrap these monthly surprises all the way till next year’s Valentine’s Day!
Head over to Times bookstore to curate your own book gift collection. Add in a personalised notebook from Bynd Artisan at Raffles City so they can pen down their thoughts.
We often get frowns from our friends when we suggest tech gadgets as Valentine’s Day gifts but you know what? When you’re dating a tech geek, this is precisely what they will want.
Catch them quietly reading up on the latest products and comparing the specs across brands?
Yes, that’s the techie.
Don’t try to reinvent the wheel and never attempt to bring them chocolates when all they really want is that brand new tablet.
Get an idea of the item they’re eyeing or ask their friends for a tip or two. It's likely they’ve been yakking on and on about their wishlist for the past three months.
If you need some inspiration, explore the wide selection of headphones and earphones for the best movie or music experience at Stereo in Plaza Singapura. Perhaps the newest smart watch or even an upgraded laptop at Challenger?
We hope this helps you pick a suitable gift that your significant other will love! But remember: after all's been said and done, it's the thought that counts, and the everyday life together that matter most.
