Handmade Your Valentine’s Day Gifts with Diverse Workshops in Hanoi

Instead of traditional romantic nights at cinemas or fancy restaurants, young couples are paying more interest in craft workshops, where they can make their own gifts and earn new experiences.


Craft workshops have recently emerged as a “dou goal” dating choice for young couples, where they can enjoy a romantic date and handmade gifts for their each other. In Hanoi, many workshops with diverse themes were held on Valentine’s Day, from chocolate making, painting, drawing or tree planting.
