Top 5 Last Minute Valentines

Whether you were busy feasting with friends and family around town or soaking on a sun drenched beach someplace a little more exotic, it may have slipped your mind that another (ahem) important holiday was just around the corner.  If Valentine’s Day has caught you by surprise this year, we have 5 quick fixes to ensure you still come out shining…

Send Chocolates

A box of chocolates may sound clichéd, but make those handcrafted, artisanal, haute couture chocolates lovingly hewn by resident The Peninsula’s Maître Chocolatier, Marijn Coertjens, and we’re talking a whole other level. How about having those A-list chocolates delivered by a Peninsula-liveried pageboy? (HK$1800 including chocolates and delivery) Or perhaps the pageboy could also hand deliver a little note pointing toward the Peninsula Rolls Royce idling at the curb waiting to whisk you both off for a candlelit dinner by the poolside? (HK$7800 including chocolates, delivery, transport and a 5-course dinner at Felix or The Pool) For the ultimate romantic grand gesture, look no further. (+852 2696 6694, diningphk@peninsula.com)

See a Romantic Film
If your love is a movie buff, check out The Love Sky Garden Cinema at the tippy top of LKF tower. Movies like The Notebook and Casablanca will be playing on the big screen while you cuddle up on the rooftop with yummy bites from new Korean hotspot Jinjuu, beer and bubbly. (Tickets: 6:15pm showing of The Notebook is HK$200 including snacks and a beer or glass of champagne, 9:00pm screening of Casablanca starts at HK$1478 including a 7-course tasting menu from Jinjuu, Kyoto Joe or Tokio Joe, http://hushup.hk)

Plan a Picnic 
Surprise your amour with a perfectly planned picnic in an idyllic locale courtesy of PICNIC on Forbes. Chef Philippe Orrico’s newly opened Kennedy Town spot specializes in creating the ideal lunch full of gourmet French goodies, all presented in a gorgeous picnic basket. From cheeses chosen by fromage maestro Jeremy Evrard to pork rillettes, foie gras, quinoa salad, and fresh fruit tarts, baskets start at HK$388 and can be ready and waiting for you to pick up and take to nearby Sun Yat Sen Park, Tamar Park, The Peak or even your living room floor.

Send Flowers 
There’s nothing like the arrival of an enviably beautiful bouquet to bring the flush back to your love’s cheeks. Ellermann turns out perfectly arranged florals with distinctive designer style.  (+852 2291 0388, enquiry@ellermanndesign.com) Or check out new flower delivery app GAYA Flores for blooms at the push of a button.

Book Tickets
If your Valentine doesn’t mind a little horsing around, book tickets for the Longines Hong Kong Masters, which kicks off next Friday 19 February. They’ll be jumping for joy with three full days of special events including the HKJC Race of The Riders, where Hong Kong’s best jockeys will challenge the world’s best Show Jumpers, Longines Speed Challenge, Longines Grand Prix, Shanghai Tang Polo Cup and a series of first-ever highlights in the Prestige Village headlined by iconic French house DJ duo CASSIUS.
