Planning a last-minute Valentine’s Day date with the love of your life that includes ample of quality time, treating each other, and some delicious food to boot? You don’t have to plan and go on an elaborate holiday with your partner, instead all you’ve got to do is visit DLF Mall of India and enjoy a fun day in each other’s company. Start your special V-day date at DLF Mall of India with a quick pit stop at Third Wave Coffee to fuel for the day, and if you’re more of a tea person, grab a quick bite and a cup of steaming chai at Chaayos.
If you or your partner’s love language is receiving gifts, then make this day memorable for both of you by showing your love with a thoughtful gift, or two! First things first, indulge your boo by giving their wardrobe a glow-up. Nicobar and Jaypore are great options if you want to buy classic silhouettes with an Indian twist. Partner has more of a street-style casual aesthetic? There are plenty of choices for that too. Shop for relaxed, comfortable yet trendy fits from Mango, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, or Calvin Klein. And if a tailored look is more their thing, then M&S, Fred Perry, Brooks Brothers, The Collective Denims, and Selected have styles that are ideal for a more formal occasion (like a future fancy dinner date!).
Of course, we’re here to remind you that don’t let your partner have all the fun. You deserve stylish treats too, so pick up a pair of heels and a matching shoulder bag from brands like Dune London or Charles & Keith, and top it off with some sexy-yet-cute lingerie from La Vie en Rose, which will truly make you look and feel like the main character you are.
No outfit is complete without the right accessories, and the best thing about the mall is that you can get everything you could possibly need, or want, all under one roof. Hop over to the Fossil or Longines store to get your partner a versatile watch that will go with any look, and let them return the favour by buying you your favourite baubles. BlueStone, CaratLane, and Giva are excellent options to shop from—they have timeless and dainty pieces that are perfect for everyday wear but will also go with a dressier look.
Ladies who identify as absolute beauty junkies might want to head straight to stores such as MAC, Sephora, and Bobbi Brown in the mall, after there’s no such thing as too much makeup or skincare. Those who are into Ayurvedic skincare, let your partner take you to Forest Essentials and Kama Ayurveda and pick your go-toproducts. This is also the perfect time to give your partner a mini crash course on beauty, so the next time they go without you, they know exactly what to buy. It may require many more sessions but a girl’s gotta try!
No V-day date would be complete without spending quality time together, and what better way to do it than watching a movie, bonus points if it’s a rom-com! Head to the PVR Superplex and catch your favourite flick while you cuddle up and enjoy some popcorn—it doesn’t get more romantic than this. Have a competitive streak? Challenge your partner to a game of bowling at Smaaash, and the winner gets to decide the restaurant for your V-day date night.
All that activity is sure to work up quite an appetite, and of course the mall has a wide range to pick from, no matter what vibe you’re going for. Nando’s and Big Chill café are just the spots for a laid-back date digging into hearty dishes like fried chicken and pasta. Kylin and Burma Burma are for fans of Asian food who can’t do without their dumplings and curries, while Dhaba and The Tandoori Village will satisfy all your Indian food cravings. Whatever you pick, our tip is to end the night on a sweet note by ordering a decadent dessert to celebrate your love!
