If you and your partner's idea of the perfect date is curling up at home with a good movie, then a Disney+ subscription is a must-have. Launching in Singapore on February 23, a one-year subscription will give you access to a dizzying array of content. That's more than 500 movies and 15,000 episodes from big names like Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Star. Check out the best movies and series available on Disney+ – happy bingeing! 

E-reader ($149)

Got a bookworm in your life? The Kobo Nia e-reader has enough storage to hold up to 6000 e-books to feed your partner's voracious appetite for reading. It can go for weeks on a single battery charge too, saving the hassle of constantly juicing it up for use. The Kobo Nia is also suitable for reading glare-free on a sunny day at the park, or cosied up at home in a dim bedroom thanks to a built-in light. It's a gift that truly keeps on giving.
