One hundred roses delivered in a brand new Mercedes carried by Elton John who sings a personalised ballad to your loved one, affordable right?

Sadly, Elton no longer accepts lower budget Valentines Day jobs (it’s a real shame) and for those of us who don’t see the need to spend money to show love are left kicking the dust.

You don’t need to splash cash to make the day romantic, and BloomMe (lover of all things budget) has your back. Impress your date without going into debt!

Budget Dining

A candlelit dinner doesn’t have to break the bank. This Valentines Day, you can whisk your loved one out for the dinner you always dreamed of at the price you always prayed for.

From the 10-14th February, you can enjoy between 30-50% off a huge choice of restaurants and bars across Hong Kong with our favourites at EatiGO. The filtering system allows you to shuffle and sort the list of restaurants to find which one suits your Valentines Day budget best. This means that you can now dine at your favourite restaurant during the busiest time of the year, for less!

If you miss Valentines Day (or forget to book anything and have two extra nights to fix this mistake) then rest easy, as EatiGO has also offered discount dining between the 15-16th February. There’s a 30-50% discount off dining at these romantic places across Hong Kong.

Kick up the discount dining experience a notch, and give your loved one a BloomMe experience to make the day extra special. We are offering $150 first-time bookings with the discount code: EATIGO. That means you can give them a massage, a facial, or any other treat before taking them out for a (budget) night on the town. Delightful!

Island Hopping

Does your date have an Octopus card? Does it have balance? Do they have spare change if they’re Octopus is in negative balance? If the answer to all of these things is a resounding yes, or if you’re feeling extra romantic and want to pay for their ferry, then to the outlying island you go!

From Lantau to Lamma, from Peng Chau to Cheung Chau, from Ma Wan to Tap Mun, Hong Kong is fortunate to have such a large collection of beautiful outlying islands that are just begging to be explored.

Take your date on an adventure through Lamma Island to see the giant Wind Farms, Turtle Beach, and the Kamikaze caves, before finishing off the adventure with a visit to Book Worm Cafe for some cosy time.

Don your hiking boots and get ready to sweat, because you’re taking your beloved on an outdoor adventure through Cheng Chau. Best of all, if you get tired of walking, you can easily rent out bicycles to explore the island in style. And guess what, these bicycles are super cheap to rent so you won’t be sorry.

Loving the idea of a giant biblical theme park on a beach? Then Ma Wan’s Park Island is the place for you. With a life-sized recreation of Noah’s Ark, giant animal statues, a huge butterfly garden, and an atmosphere that will have you giggling and playing like the old days, Ma Wan is a haven for those who like adventures that are out of the box.

Both you and your date adventurers? Pitch a tent the old fashioned way and camp out under the stars for Valentines Day. Perfect for those budget-conscious adventurers amongst us who have access to the right equipment, this will be a date they will never forget.

Picnic Time

Head to your nearest Park N Shop, stock up on cheap wine and cheese, and bring along a blanket to cosy up on, because you’re taking your date on a picnic of a lifetime.

A great way to show off your cooking skills, enjoy the outdoor atmosphere, and impress your loved one with your creative dating choices, picnics are a tried and true romantic way to spend the day (or night!)

We love Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park for it’s big open grass area, and the glorious views of the harbour, plus it’s close proximity to Soho and Central. Bring along a thermal blanket to keep warm, and don’t forget to offer to warm your companion as the night brings in the winter chill.

Photoshoot Time

If you did something for Valentines Day and didn’t put it on social media, did you really do anything at all?

Tell your date to look their sexiest (oops! They already do) and grab your camera for a photoshoot of a lifetime across Hong Kong. Not only is this a super fun way to explore the city, but it is also a great way to capture memories in stunning places. Not only will you cherish the super awesome photo you get in front of the colourful buildings in Choi Hung Estate, you’ll also impress your date with your awesome photography skills. It’s a win win!

BloomMe has done the hard work for you, and created a guide to the best spots to take your date to, all you need is the MTR and a camera. We’ve also included some spas close to the locations, so you could get pampered and preened and then head out for a shoot.

You’ve got the date planned, now theme your manicure to make it more romantic. We have some love-design nails you’ll fall in love with.
