Saint Valentine’s Day, commonly known as Valentine’s Day, is celebrated on February 14 each year around the world. In the past years, even in Dubai and the UAE this Day has begun to be celebrated, thanks to the big presence of expatriates.
In this special day lovers express their love for each other by presenting simple gifts such as flowers or offering greeting cards (known as “valentines“), heart-shaped confectionery, chocolates but also a luxury or cruise dinner, jewels, a travel abroad.
The classical gift for your woman is a nice bouquet of red roses. It is the most romantic and traditional gift that all women really appreciate. Flowers and in particular red roses are available anywhere in Dubai. In alternative, you can order them through Flower delivery providers.
Many couples will make time to celebrate love, passion and affection in this special day and Dubai has ideal places where to bring your lover.

This is a great option for those in Dubai for what to do if you’re seeking a romantic day experience out of the city.
Public displays of affection should be minimal as “holding hands is acceptable but kissing and hugging in public is not.” Therefore, in respect of Emirate’s culture, religion and habits, social etiquette should be respected by citizens, residents and visitors in Dubai.
