The art of proposing is no longer dominated by men. Women should consider proposing themselves if they feel like you should, we are no longer in the 19th century! You don’t have to wait. Even though it sounds extremely cliché, proposing on Valentine’s Day remains an all time classic motivation and choice. What actually matters is how you will decide to propose, so that your partner will never forget it. What follows is unique and original ideas, with enough variety to suit everyone. This way, it should be certain that the response will be an instant ”Yes”!
IN THE BOUQUET
Keep the ring fixed inside one of the bouquet’s flowers. The attached card can even be straight-forward: “Will you be my Valentine forever and for all time?”.
ON A BOTTLE
Replace a wine bottle’s label with your proposal. Don’t forget to also write the date of the event somewhere, so you can keep the bottle as a memento.
WITH THE BOX
Let the ring’s box do the talking. Open it in front of them and unfurl the message you have hidden in the box so that your loved one can read it in complete surprise.
ON THE BOARD GAME
Hide the engagement ring in your favourite board game, grab some champagne, and as you are playing they will discover the ring!
ON A BALLOON
A more fun and playful idea is to decorate their space or their office with a heart-shaped balloon with a ”Marry Me” inscription. On its colourful tail you should find a way to attach the ring!
ON THE PLATE
Everyone loves at least one kind of dessert. Make sure to carve the plate with the sentence ”Will you marry me?”, which they will discover as soon as they’re done with the plate’s contents!
Discover your inner barista. Serve them their favourite hot beverage and draw on the foam the desired question.
USE THE DOG
Do they have a dog? Just imagine their reaction when they discover the ring bound to their dog’s collar…
USE THE KID
Use your child to propose to them! A t-shirt with the sign ”Will you marry Daddy/Mommy?” will surely bring tears to their eyes.
ON A GONDOLA
What could be more romantic than a proposal on a gondola in Venice? A classic recipe for a wedding proposal, it will definitely make your partner feel like they’re the star of a movie.
ON THE CAKE!
Make a cake and write ”Marry Me” on the top. How could your significant other refuse such a sweet gesture?
If you love Chinese food, then a good idea is to hide your message, along with the ring, inside a fortune cookie.
IN THE FOREST
Here’s an idea that brings to mind a movie scene with elves and fairies. You can find a forest clearing, add tiny lights that look like fireflies, a couch, a huge sign with your proposal and the most romantic place your significant other could wish for is ready!
WITH A NOTEBOOK
Buy a notebook and use as a title ”The reasons that make me want to live the rest of my life with you…”. Find your inner writer and fill (if not all, some) pages with whatever you want to tell them. You should then offer it to your partner as a gift. They will definitely get the point…
ON THE WALL
Fill a room’s walls with words of love and exactly what you feel for them. Guide them by spreading rose petals on the floor leading to the room. Kneel in front of them and propose then and there.
