Cupid is about to hit Hong Kong again, and we’re here to help you get ready for the storm. It’s the time of the year when sugar consumption is high, because ‘tis the season for love. In the spirit of equality, here are some V-Day gifts that will have both men and women smiling as if the next day isn’t a work day.
1. Gifts for the tummy
You can’t go wrong with La Maison du Chocolat’s 38-piece heart-shaped classic Valentine's Day collection. If you’re looking for something that’s not a cliched heart-shaped box of sweet treats but still want to take the dessert route, The Cakery has unveiled a special Valentine’s Day creation – its Berries Blossom, a raw vegan strawberry and raspberry cheesecake, with no added preservatives. Hey, it’s dessert, and it’s healthy!
2) Gift of experience
If you want to take it a step further than just buying some sweets, you can check out Sesame Kitchen’s Valentine’s Day Raw Chocolate Class, where you can both sign up and learn how to create your own low-sugar chocolate gift-box for each other. If being in the kitchen isn’t really your thing, there are a host of experiential options on Spoilt. After all, there’s nothing more romantic than doing something fun with your partner.
3) Gift of fitness
Speaking of doing fun things with your partner, take some inspiration from fitness influencer Emi Wong on how to customise a special couple’s workout, where the two of you can spend quality time together, and burn calories while you’re at it.
4) Gift for the home

If you’re planning for a simple night in with your significant other, then décor is important. For a beautiful centrepiece (or even just as a gift bouquet), we’re loving the modern and minimalistic approach to floral design by Floristry at M&L.
