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

304

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.
