New Delhi, Feb 13 (IANS) How far can you go to express your love — up in the air on a chartered plane for Rs.250,000 or to declare your sentiments in a stadium full of people for Rs.75,000? Valentine’s Day celebrations are getting larger than life every year, and die-hard romantics with deep pockets are readily splurging away.
Thinking of You, a Delhi-based one-stop gifting and celebration management services company, offers a range of experiences, but a one-of-a-kind offering is a ‘Proposal on a charter airplane 35,000 feet in the air’, which comes at a starting price of Rs.250,000.
The idea is to make your loved one feel like the most important person in the 45 minute airtime. You can book a private flight in which the air hostess or the man himself welcomes his lady love with a bouquet of flowers for a red carpet entry to the aircraft. There’s music, and then followed by a champagne and fine dining. All this is also captured in a video and in photographs, for memories of a lifetime.
Flower lover, are you? Express ‘True Love’ with 1000 roses from Ferns N Petals.
Get a heart-shaped arrangement of 100 red roses and then 30 different arrangements of 30 red roses each. A 2 ft high teddy bear holding a heart from Archies, a 1 ft tall Valentine’s Day greeting card, five heart-shaped balloons, a 1 kg chocolate cake along with 200 gm pack of Ferrero Rocher chocolates as part of the pack.
For those who like a cosy evening out with an interlude of romance and luxury, head to Sevilla in central Delhi’s The Claridges and get a taste of the Mediterranean landscape in a soothing and romantic ambience with meandering water bodies.
Take your beloved on a culinary journey in canopies decorated with flowers and candles and choose a private dining experience with unlimited premium beverages including champagne, and a Valentine’s Day Special Degustation Menu customised by the chefs, with personalised butler service.
Of the four packages, the top-end offer is for Rs.99,999 exclusive of taxes. It entails an exclusive cabana decorated with flowers and candles for the couple, unlimited premium range of beverages including GH Mumm Champagne, Valentine’s Day Special Degustation Menu and personalised butler service.
Then, of course, there are other packages priced at Rs.49,995, 24,995 and the cheapest at Rs.14,995 all exclusive of taxes at Sevilla.
There are several eateries across India that have come up with special offers and packages. Even in Chennai, you can enjoy a romantic dinner by the beach with waves touching the feet at Rs.20,000 per couple at the InterContinental Chennai Mahabalipuram Resort.
If giving surprises is your kind of thing, Oye Happy is happy to help!
Hyderabad-based Oye Happy has grabbed the rights to show your love proposal and customised message on the giant scoreboard at the cricket stadium in Vizag in the midst of the India-Sri Lanka Twenty20 match on Sunday.
A single slide message can be displayed for Rs.25,000 or a 30-second video can be played if you are willing to shell out 75,000. And the cost includes tickets for two.
“Eight orders have been received for the match in Vizag and four for the one in Ranchi. People are looking to create memories that can be instantly shared on social media rather than spending on expensive material presents this year,” Varun Todi, co-founder, Oye Happy, told IANS.
There’s more! You can even get celebrities to deliver Valentine messages — say through a phone call, video message or even with a visit.
But this depends on a number of factors as well as the mode of greetings. So, the price can range from Rs. 25,000 to Rs.10,00,000, shared Todi, adding that they have received four orders for this surprise.
