Do you feel all wrapped up in thoughts about your lover sometimes? Maybe that is why some people get chickened out at the thought of proposing someone. However, the opportunity presents itself on Valentine’s Day. Without further ado, below are some proposal ideas you would want to consider.
Propose in Front of Crowd
Several couples head to a theater nearby on February 14. In case you are fairly sure your sweetheart is going to accept your proposal, then contact the venue in advance to see whether you can do it onstage. Look for a musical or play that has a love or wedding theme. Its manager should be able to help you plan something memorable and theatrical. Do not forget to purchase evening tickets early because all theaters see a rush on Valentine’s Day. For an alternative evening out, buy an advertisement at a cinema theater near you that will display it prior to the previews start. You will need to make sure that you arrive a lot early though.
Free Yourselves of Appointments and Recreate your First Date Moment
Tell your lover not to make any plans or something for the day, and make all the necessary arrangements to recreate the first date of the two of you. Make reservations in the restaurant you first met, get a tape of a song that was playing on a radio in your car, or pack a picnic for food and wine you had on that day. Make it a point to turn up wearing a similar dress. In your own words, tell her that you have recreated the special moment, as it was when you first met the person of your dreams, before getting down on a knee to pop the question.
Propose When on a Drive or Walk
Go with your partner to a romantic spot in your neighborhood in a leisurely way, talk about why you feel for her and why your relationship is extremely special. You can say the area you have taken her to is as beautiful or close to the heart as she is before popping the question.
Say it with Her Favorite Candy
Buy your ladylove a boxful of heart-shaped chocolates, and replace one with an engagement ring. She may be surprised to see that you got her such an inexpensive present, but when she will be filled with joy when she opens the box.
Another idea is to purchase a bag of conversation heart candies. Try to find one that says “Marry Me”. Share the candy bag with her, having the special candy in your pocket. When she is not paying attention, simply slip it out and then say, “This one is for you”. Quickly follow it up with the engagement ring.
Let Her Discover the Ring
If you have any proposal for engagement ideas this Valentine’s Day, then you would want to purchase a diamond or birthstone ring to make it close to the heart. If you are usually not the romantic type, then your partner will doubt you are planning something if you go for a late night show or fancy dinner. Therefore, in your case, it is better to put your engagement gift somewhere common at your home – this might be in the neck of a beer bottle on your refrigerator’s shelf with an attached note that reads, “Will You Marry Me?”
Another casual approach is to take a daily and simply ask, “Do you feel we should rather have our engagement news announced in the newspaper?” When your soon-to-be-fiancée realizes what you just said, take out the engagement ring for her to pop the question.
Jigsaw Puzzle Proposal
Give your lover the puzzle inside a box, all wrapped up as a gift. She will open it, maybe feeling rather surprised by the present, and begin to solve it, only to later find that a piece of the puzzle is missing. You will reveal that piece, which reads the four magical words.
Propose with Photo Album
Put together an album with photos taken during your important ‘together’ moments. On the second last page of it, write, “How about taking this forward?” and follow that by writing, “How about tying the knot?” No one can predict the future, but this is among the unique engagement proposal ideas.
Announce on the Radio
In case your sweetheart wakes up to a radio alarm clock, that is set to a specific station or listens to it at work each day, then arrange to pop the question on air on February 14. Call the radio station at least some days early to arrange it and see if you can have an ad played in your own voice.
A Book with Secret
Imagine one of the engagement gift ideas where she will open a package to discover a romantic poetry book. Instead of trying the old-school proposal way of underlining words that form a passionate sentence, try something out of the box at least in this respect. Have all of its pages stuck together save the one place it opens, where you have a slot cut with an engagement ring inside.
