Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to express your love to your special someone and surprise them with an unforgettable proposal. No matter which proposal idea you choose, make sure it’s something special that reflects your shared love and romance. Plus, the day comes with its own set of romantic traditions that can make it an even more meaningful and memorable experience.
Here are 10 creative and romantic Valentine’s Day proposal ideas to help you make your proposal extra special. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Pack a romantic picnic basket with your partner’s favourite snacks and head to a scenic spot. Lake Gardens might seem like a dense park with loads of people, but there are some quiet spots if you walk further into the gardens, which can be pretty private. Don’t forget to bring a bottle of champagne and the ring (of course!) in the basket to ensure the most romantic proposal.
Is your partner a puzzle solver or adventurer? Plan a scavenger hunt that leads your partner to the proposal! Place clues in places that are meaningful to you both, like your first date spot or a favourite restaurant. Add gifts to make the scavenger hunt special. You’re on one knee at the finish line when they reach the end of the hunt, ready to pop the question.
If budget permits, surprise your partner with a romantic trip to a special place. Maybe even to somewhere they have always wanted to go. Whether it’s a beach getaway or a trip to a charming European city, take the opportunity to propose in a romantic setting.
Proposing in a photo booth is not just something you see in movies. Make it your reality and get some adorable pictures out of it too! Take your partner to a photo booth and prepare for a fun surprise. Don’t forget to set up the ring in the kiosk beforehand and propose when the timer goes off. Adorbs!
If you’re looking for an over-the-top proposal, and your partner isn’t one to quickly shy away from a big public proposal, you can’t go wrong with a flash mob. Arrange a choreographed dance and have friends and family join in at the end of the performance when you get down on one knee and propose.
Easily the easiest Valentine’s Day proposal idea you can do. Fill a room with helium balloons and have your proposal written on one. Or you can get individual letter balloons that spell out “Will You Marry Me”. You can attach the ring to the balloon and have your partner pop it to find the surprise.
A classic way to show your partner how much you love them is to spell out your proposal with flowers, candles, or even lights in a park. Do it at home if you prefer a more private and intimate setting. You can also show off your culinary skills with a home-cooked meal after they say “Yes!” Dinner and good food, what could be better?
Embrace nostalgia and take your partner back to where you first met. Arrange a special cute surprise and pop the question. Take it up a notch and plan your proposal according to the setting. For example, if you met at school, ask permission to use a classroom and lay out some canteen food or hollow out a notebook to put the ring in and with the words “Will You Marry Me” doodled all over the pages.
Turn your living room into a movie theatre with a projector, cosy blankets, and their favourite snacks. Play a romantic movie and have the proposal written on the screen.
If budget is not a concern, go LARGE. Get your date ready and dress to the nines for a magical night! Take your date for a delicious dinner at the best restaurant in your town and arrange for a fireworks show. As the fireworks light up the sky with sparkling colours, get down on one knee and ask the love of your life to marry you.
KL Tower’s Revolving restaurant might not be one of the most romantic places to take your date, but it sure has the city's best views. And the cost of a buffet dinner is quite reasonable as well. Book a table for 6:30 PM, ensuring you get a seat by the window, and watch as the city comes alive as the night falls. When the time is right, pop the question.
Want to take your date on a trip so you can propose but on a budget? Take them to Langkawi! The island of Langkawi has many private sunset boats hires you can book for your special evening. Bonus, many come with dinner as well. Surprise your better half by bringing their family and friends to witness the momentous occasion when you get down on one knee amidst the blue ocean.
