With Valentine’s day just around the corner we know a few of you will be taking this opportunity to pop the question! We’ve come up with 5 crafty ways to make your proposal a little different.

1. Hidden in a cake
We’ve all seen the classic ‘Friends’ episode where Phoebe discovers the ring inside of a cake. A timeless way to pop the question, plus a sweet treat. Just be sure your partner doesn’t bite down too hard!

2. Home cooked dinner
Light some candles, pour a large glass of wine (to steady the nerves of course) and get down on one knee! A home cooked dinner isn’t too suspicious and will still leave the element of surprise.

3. Scavenger hunt
Being stuck indoors still, this is a fun way to do something a little different and get a bit crafty. Hide the ring around your home and create clues for your partner leading up to it.

4. Family / Friends catch up zoom call
Zoom calls have become the biggest trend over the last year. You can pretend it’s just a standard catch up and have each friend / family member hold up a sign with the relevant words. This is a great way to get your loved ones involved as well as being unexpected!

5. Message in a bottle
Daily walks are sometimes the best part of the lockdown day, take a small bottle and write a message on a piece of paper inside. You can hide this on your normal walking route and have your partner find it. A lovely memory and a keepsake you’ll look back fondly upon in years to come.

Let us know if you try any of these, we would love to hear all your proposal stories. Good luck and get proposing!
