With just a few days left to Valentine’s Day, it’s time to make sure you’ve got all your bases covered. There’s the extravagant dinner, flower bouquet (which will die after a few days, but is a sweet gesture nonetheless), luxuriant staycation, and — of course — a gift to express your eternal devotion. And if you still aren’t quite sure what to get your significant other, we’ve put together several lists of makeup, jewellery, bags and apparel options to choose from. We also included a guide to presents under S$200, for those on a tight budget.

But you’re more inclined towards unwinding over drinks at the bar with your lover, or even skipping town for a romantic vacation, here are some additional ideas.
