Valentine’s Day is a day for chocolates, balloons, spending time with your sweetheart and even proposing!
The most romantic holiday of the year is fast approaching and it is the perfect time to ask that special someone if they will join you in marriage. While Valentine’s Day is just as good as any other day of the year to propose, here are some ideas to make it an extra special event for you and your partner.
Take them on a scavenger hunt
This could be a date idea in itself, but setting up a scavenger hunt proposal will make that moment even more fun for your significant other. Start off with a handwritten clue leading them to the spot of your first date or kiss, and leave another clue for the next location. You can leave gifts with each clue or just send them around town. At the last hint, either leave the ring as a gift or be waiting for them down on one knee!
Recreate your first date
Speaking of first dates, why not recreate your first one? If you still remember the first movie you saw in theaters together, rent it at home or go back to the same theater. Make a reservation at that special dinner spot or make it a public event by inviting out friends if your first date was with a group.
At the end of the evening, let them know how special that first date was to you and show them what it meant by proposing!
Personalized candy hearts
If your loved one has a sweet tooth and loves traditional candy, grab a packet of the old-fashioned conversation hearts. Make it a little bit more special by personalizing them! You can create an entire “conversation” and personalize compliments or reasons you love them, and finish up with the big one that asks them to marry you.
Get in touch with your inner child
Homemade gifts are the best and a DIY proposal is even sweeter. Remember making Valentine’s Day cards by hand in grade school? Bust out those craft supplies and go all out with glitter, ribbons, cut out hearts, etc. and craft a card that will have your partner immediately saying, “yes!”
Keep it old fashioned
Sometimes, keeping it simple really is the way to go. Valentine’s Day is typically the day for candy, balloons, and stuffed animals, so stick with that plan. This year, just add a ring to the box of chocolates or tie it around a teddy bear’s neck!
