5 Perfect Ways to Propose this Valentine’s Day

After the dreaded ‘January blues’ have worked their way out of our system, February seems to have arrived with a bit of a spring in its step.

The shortest month in the year, the month of pancakes, and the month we (fingers crossed!) begin to see better weather upon us.

But for some, February 2018 will be even more of a month to remember!

Love is in the Air

For those who may have forgotten, February 14th is Valentine’s Day; a day in which love is celebrated across the world.

So how are you spending your Valentine’s Day?

You might be excited at the prospect of the latest box set to binge on, and be treating yourself to a well-deserved takeaway. You might be looking forward to an evening of being wined and dined at your favourite restaurant.

Both equally enticing dates!

Yet for some, Valentine’s Day signifies the day that they are going to finally pop the question.

This evokes one of the greatest struggles known to mankind – how exactly are you going to do it?

It’s probably a bit late to plan that dream trip abroad if you are planning on asking this V Day, but this quick list of our favourite proposal ideas should give you some inspiration should you be thinking of asking later in the year and need a bit more time to prepare!

The Proposal

  1. Abroad

Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular ways to propose on Valentine’s Day is whilst on holiday.

Enticing your partner to some unknown city could provide the perfect backdrop for a romantic event to remember.

Whether it’s Paris, Venice, or somewhere of special importance to the both of you, a surprise weekend away could help you ‘put a ring on it’.

  1. Food for Thought

For some, sweet and simple does the trick.

A survey by wedding website The Knot revealed that 31 percent of women would want to be proposed to at their favourite restaurant.

Alternatively, cooking your partner their favourite meal at home proves how much thought and effort has gone into the process. Definitely, something to consider.

  1. PDA (Public Display of Affection)

Planning a public spectacle may sound like a scene from a horror movie to some, yet for others, it is the perfect way to celebrate your love.

Organising a proposal in public immediately throws off suspicion, and can provide some fantastic video footage for years to come. Take a look at the brilliant effort below.


  1. With a Little Help From My Friends

With family being one of the most important aspects of our life, it is no surprise that devoted partners look to those we love the most for help at such an exciting time.

Whether it is for further inspiration or much needed support, or you even rope them into the proposal itself; both can be an effective way of asking for your partner’s hand in marriage.

  1. Hobbies Help

Perhaps you met at your local gym, or are both music fanatics.

Maybe you are both keen cyclists or enjoy painting together.

Proposing through a common hobby that you share adds a personal touch to your proposal, and, if you have plans to continue the hobby, creates warm memories to reflect on together for years to come.
