So you’ve finally gotten date night down pat, you’ve made sure there’s a horoscope love match and are now ready to pop the question. But let’s face it, asking someone to marry you is one of the most important steps in your life and one of the most nerve-wracking. Every man wants to make their proposal special and unforgettable for the woman they love, but most of the time, it’s difficult to think up a proposal that is unique to you and your relationship. If you are ready to go down on one knee for the woman you love, here are five unique proposal ideas to help you get started.
Unique Proposal Ideas
Take her on a scavenger hunt
You can either do this proposal in your house, in your backyard, or throughout your entire neighborhood, depending on how elaborate you want your proposal to be. Think of a few places that have a special meaning to your relationship and then have a family member or friend to help guide your partner to each place. You can have the scavenger hunt lead to where you had your first date, your first kiss, or even where you said ‘I love you’ for the very first time.
Write her a beautiful love poem
Roses are red, violets are blue, a beautiful love poem might be just for you! If your soon-to-be fiancée is a writer, or just loves reading in general, there’s nothing better than putting your feelings into words in a poem or a sonnet. You don’t have to be a wordsmith to craft something special. You just need to be honest about yourself, your feelings, and your relationship to have your poem speak for itself.
For the book lover, put the ring inside an old novel
This is another great idea for the writer or reader in general! Find an old novel that you know your partner admires and then cut out a heart within the book’s pages. Having the woman you love open a copy of their favorite book only to see a beautiful ring inside would truly make the moment special.
Bonus points: You can also highlight certain passages or words that help you express how you truly feel.
Shoot a movie!
Whether it’s on your smartphone or with a fancy camera, shooting a short movie is a creative way to pop the question. It doesn’t necessarily have to be elaborate, it can even be just a reenactment of your first date or even the first time you met her family. Whatever it is, a short movie can bring your proposal a personal touch.
Put together a photo album
If you have been together for a long time, you most likely have a lot of photos to show for it. Putting together a photo album will take your partner on a nostalgic journey down memory lane. Try to find pictures that portray the best moments of your relationship. And, if you don’t have any physical pictures of you and your partner, no problem! Just go through your phone, or your Instagram account and pick which pictures you think are best, and print them out at a store nearby.
