7 Alternative Valentine's Day Activities To Enjoy With Your Loved One

Want to do something a little different for this Valentine’s Day but struggling to decide what to choose? This list gives 7 fun and alternative activities with your loved one to enjoy on the day of romance.

1. Become a Mixologist Team at Home


Want to try something new but away from the crowds? Grab yourself a mixology kit! Perfect as a couples activity, the kit by Compendium comes with a creative selection of gin variations and mixers accompanied with a recipe book for you both to follow. Bring out the mixologist in you both and enjoy the results with a toast to Valentine’s Day! Order your kit here.

2. Pottery Class


We all know that famous scene from the hit movie, Ghost, so it makes sense to add a pottery class to the list! For beginners and experienced potters, choose from a range of activities including basic wheel throwing, the ancient technique of dip glazing, hand-building and more advanced sessions for those couples who want to level up their pottery game! Book a session here.

3. Go for a Treetop Course at Bedok Reservoir Park

If you’d like to inject a little adventure into your date, scale the trees with the Forest Adventure! Get the adrenaline pumping as you both scale dizzy heights, tackling the obstacles up in the treetops. Bring along your Thermos® Sports Bottle for hydrating after completing the course, and most importantly, don’t look down! Check out the website here. 

4. Visit the quieter, more secluded Hort Park

For couples looking to spend time among nature but not climb them, visit the secluded Hort Park. Unlike Gardens by the Bay or the Botanical Gardens, Hort Park has far fewer visitors, making it a truly romantic spot to spend time alone. Turn the date into a meal and prepare a picnic too. The Thermos® Lunch Tote comes in handy for storing picnic food such as fruit pieces or dips. Want to learn more about the park? Take a look at the site here.

5. Visit The Turtle and Tortoise Museum

Did you even know that this intriguing museum exists? We thought not! This museum is perfect for animal lovers with a curious mind and willing to learn something new. The Turtle and Tortoise Museum hosts one of the largest collections of turtles and tortoises, both alive and artefacts, as recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records! Get up close and personal to many different variations of these ancient creatures, including terrapins and box turtles roaming freely through the park. Don’t forget to snap a selfie together as you feed them! Learn more here.

6. Book a painting session


Brush up on your painting skills with a fun art session! Book an Art Jam slot to get a free canvas, limitless colours and a complimentary drink throughout your supported painting session. Places are getting booked up fast, so be quick to get a slot as close to Valentine’s Day as you can. Read more here.
