11 Awesome Valentines Ideas That Won't Break the Bank

Lots of fun, without the pricey Valentines mark-ups

Last updated: 10 May 2022 - 4 min read

We love a good date night out at a restaurant like anyone else. But we definitely don't love the marked up Valentines menus, or being in a restaurant with only other couples. If you're the same, here are some super cool Valentines experiences that won't break the bank!

Psst: If you're single, these are awesome to do with girlfriends too!

1

Head Back to Swinging 1960s

Part theatrical experience, part audio storytelling, with beautiful 1960s production set design and walking through the streets of Jalan Besar at night - this immersive street theatrical experience is like nothing we've done before. Put on your walking shoes, and be transported back in time together!

2

Enjoy Szechuan Gin (or Others!)

Head to Singapore's Original Gin Distillery at Dempsey for a surprising afternoon of gin tasting. You'll get to smell gin ingredients and later identify them in the gins, try out homemade bitters (with cool flavours like Szechuan peppers and cinnamon), and get to taste a LOT of drinks! YUMMY

3

Get on the Longboarding Trend

This is a fun one to do as a couple or with friends! Under the guidance of passionate instructors, you'll learn the basic techniques of longboarding, which includes pushing, carving, and braking. Who knows, if you're a natural skater, maybe you'll pick up a cool trick or two!

4

Kayak into Nature

Being in nature is one of our favourite ways to recharge and one of our favourite ways to spend time with our loved ones. Here, you'll kayak around mangroves in Ubin, and fully immerse yourself in its gorgeous nature and amazing views. SerendipET's kayaking guides are also one of the best around - they're super heartfelt, and know all about Ubin's inhabitants and wildlife. Bonus: this is pet-friendly so bring your furbaby along!

5

Make a Cute Clay Dish

If you have always wanted to do pottery, this is a unique one that combines both handbuilding and painting. Here you'll will get to make your own clay dish, complete with a cute character, paint it and bring home a fully personalised cute dish! It's a fun and relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

6

Have Fun Axe Throwing

Take your friend / significant other axe throwing for Valentines, and see who can hit the target most. Loser buys drinks 🤪 It is a surprisingly a great way to have fun and is both silly and therapeutic at the same time.

7

Explore Singapore's Hidden Marine World

For the wildlife lovers out there, this is perfect. Here you'll get to explore our hidden intertidal zones. These intertidal zones are home to some of the coolest, cutest and weirdest marine life we’ve seen in our life. Explore Singapore's hidden marine world with a naturalist, and get to see (and learn about!) hermit crabs, sea cucumbers, swimmer crabs and sand dollars.

8

Chill and Make Art

This is a really lovely zen way to spend the afternoon - rain or shine! Here during this 2-hour art jam session, you'll get to nurture your inner artist at a lovely studio, with drinks. Bonus: This is also pet-friendly so you can bring your furbaby along!

9

Graffiti Like Banksy

This is one of our favourite date experiences! The experience takes place in a cool warehouse location, and is an awesome chilled way to spend an afternoon. There you're given a couple of spray cans each, you get your own wall and you're off to vandalise however you like!

10

Make Kimchi with Korean Chef

This is a really fun one for foodies! Here you'll head into the cosy home of a Korean Chef and learn to make Kimchi from scratch. More than just a cooking class, your host loves to introduce guests to Korean culture and food - so you'll gain a deeper understanding of the stories behind what you cook. She'll also serve you delicious banchan (side dishes) so you can enjoy them alongside your kimchi making!

11

Enjoy Coffee and Churros

This had us at Churros 😋 This is specially structured for coffee enthusiasts to explore the origin of coffee beans, and the various techniques to produce the perfect cup of coffee. You'll learn the hand technique in brewing and the coffee’s roasting profile, and its influence on the final cup’s tasting profile. Our favourite part? You'll get churros to end the workshop!
