Marina Square: All The Right (Budget Friendly Too!) Gifts For Each Valentine Type
Valentine’s Day sees pronounced celebrations of love as much as it does internal bemoaning. On February 14, it could be tricky to keep the flame alive in light of inflated dinner prices or a gift idea drought, and we hear you; if coming up with yet another hackneyed date idea (or gift) feels like work, you are probably looking in the wrong places.
We have it on good authority that Marina Square is the right place, one that rewards you with attractive deals across fashion, beauty and F&B when you download the brand new Marina Square app.
There is so much to go around you won’t have to invest much work to find something right for each unique Valentine profile.
The Sharp Dressed Man
1. Benjamin Barker
He would not explicitly sound out his want (or need) to stockpile apparels as the ladies would, but it is there. Shopping the racks of custom fitted shirts, suits and gentlemanly paraphernalia at Benjamin Barker is a step in the right direction, because he wouldn’t say no to more options to impress you on your Valentine’s date all the way through Chinese New Year.

2. Urban de.Fine
There’s something about leather goods that lends an extra oomph to a look. Besides the ultra sleek Bellroy wallets and Arkademie journals that make it impossible to ignore, there is much to consider when you throw in timepieces from Hypergrand, RFID cardholders from C-Secure, backpacks from Thue and totes from Antenna Shop.

Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a fresh, customised bouquet of flowers at D’Petals. Give it to her in person, have it delivered to her office desk as a mid-day surprise – do what you will; she’ll be the envy of whoever that is watching, that’s for sure.

Armed with the Marina Square app, you’d get to give Bae the sweetness overload he/she deserves, with Redpan’s limited edition Valentine’s Day dessert for S$9. Choose between the Churros in a sugary trinity of coconut dip, strawberries and cookie crumble, or the Mango Panna Cotta with Curried Macarons.
Tip: Order one of their specialty house made mocktails to go with it. We’d recommend the Lychee Earl Grey Tea, Lemongrass with Gula Melaka and Roselle Sour Plum Soda.
