Valentine’s Day Couple Spa Date
There’s nothing more romantic and sexy than getting oiled up and rubbed down on Valentine’s Day. Opt for a couple’s massage as a gift for both of you, we recommend an ultimate indulgent spa experience at the Oriental Spa at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental.
Handwritten Love Letter
Texting has become a convenient way to communicate with your partner but it also lacks a personal touch that handwritten letters written on paper used to deliver.
“A kiss emoji is so different from a lipstick kiss mark on a letter. Similarly, a picture of a flower, even stunningly beautiful, cannot be compared to the delivery of a real flower into the hands of the significant other. Sending handwritten letters and postcards today is a romantic gesture, and these signs of true affection are appreciated.”*
So go ahead, channel your inner poet, grab a fountain pen and start writing down how you truly feel about your loved one.
Who doesn't love a bit of chocolate for Valentine's Day or any day of the year for that matter? Unfortunately, most mass-produced chocolates are unhealthy, unethical and produced using unsustainable methods. If you're picking up some of the sweet stuff, be sure to look for bars that are fair-trade, organic, vegan or even homemade and enjoy your chocolate munching guilt-free.
