Are you looking for a nice gift for Valentine's Day in Rotterdam Centre? Maybe your loved one likes a nice perfume? An experience? Or does his/her love go through the stomach?

Below we share our gift tips in Rotterdam Centre for a successful Valentine's Day!

Skins Cosmetics

We love Skins! This beautiful store on the Kruiskade exudes luxury and is therefore the ultimate place for a beautiful gift. What also makes Skins so special are the unique fragrances they sell here. Brands that you will find (almost) nowhere else and that really smell great.

Ask for advice for a nice scent or, for example, choose a box with multiple scents. This way your loved one has a different one to try every day. Would you rather give an experience? You can also book facial treatments at Skins.

Who doesn't love a gift from Lush? A nice box with different products, for example, a nice face mask or opt for a bath bomb. Especially the latter is a perfect gift if you have a bath and fit in it together.

Romantic diner

What could be a better gift than a gift that you can eat? An experience that you can share and enjoy together. Fortunately, there are also a lot of beautiful restaurants in Rotterdam Centre where you can have a romantic dinner. Of course there are a number of restaurants with a Michelin star, but even if you want to spend a little less you will find a place here.

De Doelen

In the context of creating a memory, an evening at De Doelen is perfect. Music, romance, fun; a concert in De Doelen is a true experience. Surprise your loved one with two tickets for a performance that suits you. Discover De Doelen's agenda here.

A box of chocolates

Okay, back to the presents. How about chocolate? And not just a bar from the supermarket, but a box of delicious bonbons. A romantic gesture and if you are lucky, your loved one will share the gift with you.

There are several places where you can choose from dozens of bonbon options. One of them is of course De Bijenkorf. But Coco & Sebas is also a well-known store where they shower you with chocolates. Don't forget van Beek & Specker Pastry Bakery, where it's impossible to leave without buying something. Finally, we recommend Chocoholic on the Goudsesingel. A bit outside the centre, but trust us, it's worth it.

A cultural excursion

Is your sweetheart crazy about art? Then visit one of the popular museums in Rotterdam. Have you for instance ever been to the Depot? A visit to the roof terrace should not be missed! End the date with a bite to eat? Then book a table at the beautiful Renilde restaurant. Once at Museum Park, there is of course much more cultural to discover. Have you ever visited all these museums at Museumpark?

Another nice idea is the Remastered Experience, under the Erasmus Bridge. A museum where you become part of the work of art! All your senses are stimulated in the various interactive spaces. This way you create digital 3D art in the Playground itself, and interact with thousands of fish in the Underworld.
