It’s time to celebrate and treat yourselves!
Ah, young love! Remember when you’d spontaneously hop on a plane for a romantic getaway? Go out for dinner at the drop of a hat? Or woo each other with little love notes or cute gestures? After several years of being together, kids, bills, a global pandemic…it’s easy to let things slide in the romance department as the daily grind takes over. Hey, no judgment here! We’re in the same boat. While some see Valentine’s Day as a commercial venture, why not use it as a reason to show your other half just how much you care? We’re past the stage of anonymous cards, so choose to celebrate your love together with these Valentine’s Day gift ideas perfect for couples.
Editor’s Note: The situation in Hong Kong regarding closures and restrictions on opening hours due to the coronavirus is constantly evolving. Many businesses are taking extra precautions, but please make sure you follow the latest government advice. Stay home if you have recently travelled overseas, have interacted with anyone who has been away, or display any symptoms.
If your other half didn’t get a wedding band, or perhaps getting hitched isn’t for you, matching rings still make for a lovely show of unity. Casually stroll past some jewellers and suggest you both pop in for “a quick look”. How about pairing the Quatre Classique Edition solitaire from the Boucheron “because of love” Valentine’s selection with the chunky Quatre Black Edition men’s ring.
Couples Or Family Photoshoot
If the most recent photograph of the two of you was taken several years ago, it’s time for an up-to-date snap. Set aside some time and book in a professional couples photo session, or get the kids involved with a family photoshoot like the one above by Denice Hough Photography. Click through for our pick of top Hong Kong photographers for an ideal Valentine’s Day gift.
Nespresso Coffee Machine
All parents, especially those with younger kids, will understand this suggestion. Start your Valentine’s Day off on the right foot with a shot of caffeine to get you both through.
Gift Something, Experience For Two
Add to your growing list of happy memories. How about a romantic dinner cruise, beer brewing or an outdoor rock climbing and abseiling experience for two?
Mott 32, Lunch Date Out
Are you both foodies but haven’t had the chance to indulge recently? Get the babysitter booked and make the most of some quiet time to reconnect over these top-notch dishes.
Dinner Date In
Dust off the recipe books and get busy in the kitchen! Go all out once the kids are in bed – set up some candles, put a romantic playlist on and get the bubbly chilling in the fridge. If you don’t have time to cook, order in from one of these favourite date night spots instead.
Marks And Spencer, Matching PJs
While it’s nice to get dressed up for your date at home (any excuse to dig out our party gear), it’s also pretty awesome that you can hang out in your loungewear together. Treat yourselves to a new pair of PJs this Valentine’s Day and make cuddling up extra special.
We get that you might not want to spend too much time away from your little ones, so opt for a night away with a mini staycation in the city, like at Rosewood Hong Kong (pictured), or a quiet resort on the outskirts. Click below for more Hong Kong staycation options and gift yourselves some serious alone time!
Think of your other half whenever you check the time with a synchronised timepiece. Fossil has a good selection. Consider getting them engraved for an even more personal touch.
Because no Valentine’s Day gift round-up would be complete without something cute and kitsch!
