10 Places To Get Affordable Blooms For Bae This Valentine’s Day – Starting From $18

As January nears its end, it means one thing: Valentine’s Day is round the corner.

A day where we celebrate love and show our partners how much they mean to us, on this special day, no gesture is too big or too small.

If you’re looking to give your partner some flowers, but don’t want to splash out over a hundred dollars on blooms, you’ll be glad to know that affordable options are not that hard to find these days.

Here are 10 florists that sell beautiful bouquets – fresh and dried – at wallet-friendly prices, so you can show your affection without burning a huge hole in your pocket.

After all, it’s the thought and not the amount of money you spend that counts.

1. The Bloom Room

A floral shop that typically sells bouquets that are on the pricier side, The Bloom Room is showing us all some love this Valentine’s Day by selling petite floral bouquets, so we can all experience the joy of giving and receiving flowers on the day of love.

[caption id="attachment_32962" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @bloomroomsg[/caption]

Bouquets start at $18 for a simple rose and wax flower combo, and other affordable options include a dried medicinal bottle arrangement ($28) and a dried lavender bouquet ($30).

Do take note that delivery is not free, so drop by to pick up your flowers, and save that extra money for something else!

2. The Enchanted Tree

If you haven’t heard of The Enchanted Tree, get acquainted – especially if your partner loves receiving flowers.

[caption id="attachment_32963" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @theenchantedtreesg[/caption]

A company that believes in making flowers affordable anywhere in Singapore, their hand bouquets are priced at $30 each. Yes, that’s a $30 flat fee that includes delivery.

These $30 bouquets – otherwise known as ‘Daily Picks‘ – differ on a day to day* basis, so what you get really depends on what they’re selling on that particular day.

For a more unique Valentine’s Day gift, why not get blooms in a box?

[caption id="attachment_32958" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit: @thebloombox[/caption]

Designed with a handle, these floral boxes are definitely a lot handier than the traditional hand bouquet. Their Valentine’s Day designs are out, and are available for pre-order.

The Ultimate Guide To Valentine’s Day If You’re Single AF On The Day Of Love

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and with it comes the reminder that the single ones of us are, well, single AF. Whether you haven’t had much luck in the love department lately or are single by choice—which let’s admit, most of us are—, Valentine’s Day has a way of getting to even the best, most fiercely independent ones of us.

While Valentine’s Day can be absolute torture for those of us without someone special to spend the occasion with, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are some parties and options you should definitely check out that will have you feeling a lot less sorry about being single on Valentine’s.

1. Let Your Heart Go Loco At Lucha Loco

[caption id="attachment_22666" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Lucha Loco Facebook[/caption]

Single and ready to mingle? Lucha Loco’s Hearts Go Loco is the place to be! The Mexican joint sees a huge turnout year after year at its annual anti-Valentine’s party and this year is likely to be no different.

For the bold and the daring, step up to the kissing booth and lock lips with a stranger. Complimentary tequila shots will be on hand to give you that extra bit of liquid courage if you need it! For those fresh out of a crappy relationship, bring along a photo of your ex and pin it onto one of the piñatas provided. Unleash the full force of your rage upon it and you’ll feel so much better after! And if you’re out to find love, snap a polaroid of yourself and stick it on the love board. By the end of the night, who knows? Love just might come calling—or texting.

Lucha Loco
Where: 15 Duxton Hill, Singapore 089598
When: 14 February 8pm – late

[caption id="attachment_22670" align="alignnone" width="960"] 53A Facebook[/caption]

If a wild night out isn’t quite your speed, head down to Timbre for their version of Anti-Valentine’s Day.

4. Claim Insurance For Your Heartbreak

[caption id="attachment_22668" align="aligncenter" width="746"] Insurance Market[/caption]

Dreading heartbreak this Valentine’s? Claim insurance. No, we’re not kidding. The people at Insurance Market, an online insurance brokerage, have designed two heartbreak policies to tide you through a rough Valentine’s: The Break-Up Policy and the Unrequited Love Policy.

Whether your partner dumps you the one day a year we celebrate love (*cough* JERK *cough*) or you confess your feelings only to find them unreciprocated, you get to make a claim and come out of the ordeal with two free movie tickets. Take your best friend, your sibling or even your mum and forget the ones who can’t see you for the gem that you are!

As with all insurance policies, you’ll have to apply for the policy in advance—that means signing up for it ahead of Valentine’s Day, if you want to make a claim on 14th Feb. To claim your Broken Heart Insurance, simply submit your heartbreak story between 12pm – 6pm on Valentine’s Day and you’ll receive your tickets between 15 – 17 Feb. Because payout is limited to 150 pairs, remember to pick yourself up quickly and make your claim!

Where: Insurance Market
When: 14 February, 12pm – 6pm

5. Find Your Tribe On The Meetup App

[caption id="attachment_22669" align="alignnone" width="2400"] Meetup[/caption]

Even though its name seems to suggest it, Meetup is not a dating app. If love comes out of it, that’s simply a bonus! Originally intended to bring like-minded individuals together, there’s a group (or ten) for everyone, whether your interest lies in board games or badminton!

This Valentine’s Day, we’re pretty sure there will be single groups on there making plans to meet, so why not join in on the fun? Alternatively, find any group you like and spend your Valentine’s with them instead! Even if love doesn’t come out of it, we’re sure plenty of friendships will and sometimes, that’s actually even better.

Being single on Valentine’s Day can really, really suck, but take comfort in the fact that you’re not the only one. Instead of moping around the house lamenting the fact that you’re all alone, get out there and have a great time! Don’t let you get in your way.

Catalunya The Fullerton – One Of S’pore’s Most Romantic Restaurant In A Glass-Encased Dome

Booking a place at Catalunya, one of the most scenic restaurants right at the heart of the Singapore bay, proved to be quite a challenge for my other half, as he had waited precisely 1 month before 14th of Feb to place a booking with them. Given the importance of this date, it came as no surprise when this romantic spot was quickly snatched up by couples looking to whet both their visual and gastronomical appetite.

[caption id="attachment_2884" align="aligncenter" width="960"] Catalunya, photo courtesy of Alex Ang[/caption]

Stepping foot into the slightly dimmed setting immediately puts us in a romantic trance. I was also handed a stalk of lovely rose by two lovely ladies who greeted us by the entrance. We reached at slightly over 6:30pm, the time where the sun was just about to set. The ceiling-to-floor windows guided the sunlight gently into the room, giving the restaurant a majestic feel. The ambiance at Catalunya couldn’t have been more perfect!

We were guided to our seat by a friendly waitress who then introduced the Valentines dinner course meal to us. We were also promptly informed by her that there was a minimum charge of SGD120 per person for that night. The dinner course was designed with 3 Tapas, a starter, a choice of 2 main course, and finally a dessert. As the dinner was only slightly over SGD90 per person, we opted for 1 more Tapas and 2 mocktails to make up the SGD120.

The first Tapas that came – lobster meat wrapped with avocado, topped with dollops of salmon roe – was all my favourites wrapped in one dish. I wasn’t a huge fan of avocado, but it provided that tinge of sweetness to the lobster meat that gently unfolds while I was chewing it.


The waitress did not wait for our stomach to settle before bringing in the next 3 tapas: Jaman iberico, Tomato bruschetta, and the yummy mushroom croquets! The jaman iberico was pretty close to the one that my boyfriend had while he was on training in Spain, and when it came, he spared no time in making sure I immediately savour it together with the tomato bruschetta. The saltiness of the jaman iberico blends well with the juicy tomatoes as they melt gently in my mouth.

For the choice of 2 mains, my boyfriend opted for the charcoal grilled beef ribeye, cooked to medium-rare, while I opted for the poached sea bass. The ribeye was juicy, and a match with the mushroom sides. Unfortunately, the ribeye was a tad too charred for my boyfriend’s liking, given that the ribeye was grilled with charcoal. For my sea bass, the choice of SalsaVerde as the dressing turns out to be a wonderful surprise, as I was known as someone who does not appreciate greens in my food.

As we were enjoying our tapas and mains, we were also served our mocktails by the attentive waitress. The drinks menu were spoilt with choices for alcoholics, despite it only having 2 mocktails for us to choose from. I chose the refreshing “Singapore Breeze” (a blend of passionfruit, apple, honey and lime), while my boyfriend had no choice but to go with the “Co-cooler” (a blend of cucumber, mint, apple, and jasmine tea). Singapore Breeze is an aptly given name, with the ingredients truly being gentle on my throat. The Co-cooler is also a well deserved name with the minty feeling that was left on my tongue long after I had sipped the drink.

Finally came the dessert – the chocolate fondue. Dark chocolate was not my fanfare, although it was definitely my boyfriend’s favourite.

I ended up giving him a portion of my share as he was known to love the bitter-sweet that dark chocolates offer. Nonetheless, the dessert served as a nice wrap-up to our romantic and gastronomic getaway at Catalunya, and we would surely visit again.
