A Valentine’s Day Special : Frenching it Up

Oh la la, Valentine’s Day… Between the gift to find, the new restaurant your colleague told you about but you have already forgotten, your eyes on the calendar inching towards the 14th, tic toc, you need to find something that outdoes last year (or is at least somewhat different…) We know that Valentine’s Day is not easy! Do not panic! We’ve put together an action plan and a few good ideas so that you can celebrate with your loved one in style with a perfect date, a memorable weekend break, a spa day, with flowers, over a romantic French meal. Oh la la…

Step 1 : Flowers

Roses are classic, of course. But if you really want to impress her, give her something unique. Back in the Victorian days, flowers were meant as a way to communicate romantic language with each flower having its own meaning. A bouquet of flowers translates into a bouquet of meaning. Try Ask a French – Flowers : from the classic behind-the-back surprise to fresh blooms of summertime, Aude, French floral designer has you covered.

Step 2 : French Dining

You need a good restaurant. We have too many to suggest.

If you want to immerse yourself in Parisian chic, head down to Brasserie Gavroche. With its antique wooden doors and rustic French recipes set in a charming shophouse on Tras Street, you’ll find yourself transported into a world that is just yours.

Step 3 : Gifts

You probably didn’t have time to buy a present, overwhelmed at work I know, and here we are, a week away and without any inspiration or any ideas.

Well, here are some gift ideas to surprise your Valentine:
 Kick back with your beau and enjoy a day of pampering at Sofitel Sentosa Spa, and indulge in a full day’s access to all the spa’s facilities, from saunas to relaxing steam rooms.
 Tired of Singapore? Need an escape, fly off for a romantic getaway with Club Med
 Feel like a gift: Give her one of Van Cleef & Arpels‘ special Valentine’s day creations

Until the evening is perfect? And voila, your Valentine’s Day should all go very well! All the best!
