Valentine’s Day is one of the most romantic days of the year. Most couples are content to celebrate with a nice dinner or a night in with their favorite takeout. However, if you and your sweetheart have been together for a significant amount of time, then you may take this romantic holiday as an opportunity to get down on one knee and propose.

Unique Ways to Propose on Valentine’s Day
Propose With a Box of Chocolates
Because so many people use Valentine’s Day as an excuse to propose, your sweetheart may be expecting a ring instead of a box of chocolates. The best part about the proposal is the surprise, and your partner will definitely be surprised if you give them chocolates on Valentine’s Day instead of something a little more meaningful.
Before you give your partner the box of chocolates, open it up and replace one of the chocolates with the engagement ring. Once you give your partner the box, suggest that they open it to see what’s inside. You can blatantly ask them to open the box, or you can be sneaky and suggest you eat some of the chocolates while watching a movie. As soon as your sweetheart opens the box, they are sure to be in for a big surprise.
Let Your Partner Choose Their Ring
In the past, it was normal for one partner to pick out a ring and ask the other to marry them. However, more and more couples are making the decision to pick out the ring together. If you and your partner have talked about marriage and discussed picking out the ring together, that doesn’t mean that the surprise is completely ruined.
Before Valentine’s Day, go to a jewelry store and pick out a few different rings that you think your partner will like. When February 14 comes around, take your partner out for a nice lunch followed by some ring shopping. You can wander into the shop where you picked out some rings and pretend that you’re just there to look, but as you’re browsing, you can get down on one knee and pop the question. Once your partner says yes, you can have them pull out the rings you’ve already looked at, and your sweetheart can pick out their favorite one.
Propose at Breakfast
Most people expect a proposal to happen at the end of the night, perhaps at a fancy restaurant. However, you can make the whole day even more special if you plan to propose first thing in the morning! The goal of a proposal is to surprise your partner when they least expect it, and if you propose in the morning instead of at night, there is a better chance they won’t see it coming.
Instead of proposing during a fancy dinner, consider making your partner breakfast in bed or popping the question after having a relaxing morning making brunch together. Not only will asking your partner to marry you in the morning set a wonderful and romantic tone for the rest of the day, but it will also allow you to celebrate the special moment between just the two of you.
Make a ScrapbookOne of the best ways to make your proposal a success is to make it sentimental. Some couples will go to a significant place in their relationship or go back to where they had their first date. Another great way to make your proposal sentimental is to make a scrapbook or a photo album!
Collect pictures of you and your partner throughout your relationship. As you get to the back of the scrapbook, create a page that says “Where will the future take us?” When your partner turns the page, you can have another page that asks them to marry you, or you can just ask the question yourself. Either way, the experience will be romantic, and you can keep the scrapbook for many years!
