VALENTINE’S DAY – ROMANTIC IDEAS FOR ‘LOVED-UP’ MOMENTS
We mamas know it’s not always easy to squeeze in ‘loved-up’ moments with your nearest and dearest. Juggling these busy, hectic days (and nights) leaves mama exhausted and ‘turning-on’ the romance is often the furthest thought from the mind. But, spending some ‘alone’ time, just you and your partner, is so very important and every great relationship needs some romance thrown in once in a while.
This February, celebrate Valentine’s Day with some Bubbamama ideas that are sure to kick-start the love and romance and see you and your partner sharing some special time together.
DON’T FORGET TO BOOK THE BABYSITTER
Gifts brimming with love, special date night ideas, couples pamper sessions and more. We are sure, both you and your partner will enter into a little heart shaped bubble this Valentine’s Day:
Sometimes the simplest times are the best – After dinner, take an evening walk in your nearest park or garden, we recommend the Gardens by the Bay. Gardens by the Bay is romantically lit in the evening and, quite often, the only noise you will hear is the beautifully serenade of the evening wildlife. What could be more romantic, peaceful and simple as walking hand in hand through such a beautiful garden.
What lady does not feel wonderful in their sexy underwear? Make this Valentine’s Day a moment to treat yourself to some gorgeous underwear or sleep wear – Bubbamama adore the collections that Etam have to offer. There’s a rainbow of colours from sexy black or red through to sweet and juicey pinks and corals. Or, maybe conveniently leave the Etam Lookbook open in his browser…sometimes a little hint is necessary, right?
Is it about time he gave you a little sparkle? Drop him a few hints and you may well receive a beautiful jewelry package this February. Pendants, earrings and rings are filled with sparkling jewels simply brimming with love and desire. Some of our favourites are found at CITIGEMS and GOLDHEART stores.
The CITIGEMS ‘Love is in the Air’ Valentine’s Day Collection has something to please every lady or girlie. We were spoilt for choice:-
- Transcendence from the Milanne® Collection are very beautiful heart shapes in white gold lined with diamonds for earrings and pendants.
- Sugar Desires from the Avoire® Collection are white and rose gold ribbons tied into a heart shape and finished off by a magnificent bouquet of diamonds.
- Something cute and simply adorable are the Beary Hugs from the Bennetto Collection. White gold bears hugging hearts made of semi-precious red garnet and blue topaz.
GOLDHEART offer their Garden of Love Collections this Valentine’s Day that feature new and elegant designs in the Lovelle and Celestial® collections:
- Enchante is a buzz with bees and ladybirds encrusted with tsavorits, citrine and black diamonds as well as rose gold or white gold hearts featuring jeweled flowers and butterflies.
- Floret designs are crafted in black gold, rose gold or yellow gold. Romantic roses feature brilliant diamonds and the daisy chain rings are oozing with femininity.
- Lovelle offers new designs that are effortless yet elegant touches on the modern twists. Hearts in white gold or rose gold are romantic favourites.
- The 73-facet starburst diamond found in the Celestial® designs are a sure way to show love this February. Crafted in rose or white gold, these rings of interlocking weaves are a symbol of the intertwining lives and destiny of a couple.

If eating out and sharing a romantic meal with your loved one is your idea of bliss, Bubbamama can suggest Quayside Isle at Sentosa Cove. From laid back dining at Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro to fine dining at Saint Pierre, choose from any of Quayside Isle’s restaurants, who are featuring special Valentine’s Day menus, to make certain you find a little of what both you and your partner fancy. This picturesque waterfront setting makes a perfect venue for intimate moments and, we think, the finest way to finish of your romantic evening is to take a stroll at Sentosa Cove after dinner.
