Do you think you have found the love of your life? Are you ready to become serious in your relationship and take a step forward? If yes, then don’t you think proposing to your girlfriend this Valentine’s Day would be the perfect idea for you? Valentine’s Day is the day of love and celebrating the bond you share with your girlfriend by proposing to her on this day can be extremely memorable for the both of you.
The way you propose to your girlfriend says a lot about how much you value her and think about her preferences. The proposal to your loved one becomes even more important because it is something that will be shared with your relatives, friends and also strangers sometime or the other. Therefore picking the best way to propose to your girlfriend should be the top priority for you.
Significance of Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day started off as a day to celebrate the work of Saint Valentine who did his best to bring lovers together. But the contemporary value attached to V-day is that it is a day meant to celebrate the idea of romance and love. Wondering why Valentine’s Day should be the appropriate day for the proposal? Here are some reasons why:
- Well, first, it is the most romantic, sentimental and passionate day of the entire year for all the couples who are truly and madly in love with each other
- Planning a proposal on V-day is extremely easy, because packages for Valentine’s Day are easily available in romantic spots and places such as resorts, spas and restaurants
- V-day is a personal day for couples and they usually do not have commitments with friends or family, which gives them the opportunity to take a decision on their future life thoughtfully
Downsides to proposing on V-day
Sometimes V-day proposals might not be a great idea. Your girlfriend might already have an idea that you are going to propose on that day and thus your surprise proposal might not surprise her at all. Many couples take the big decision on V-day. So if you become a part of the crowd, then your proposal will not be that unique. Prices of chocolates, flowers, gifts and other such romantic items are extremely high around Valentine’s Day.
15 romantic ways of proposing to your girlfriend this Valentine’s Day
Despite the downsides, if you are confident enough to propose to your girlfriend on this V-day, then here are 15 romantic ways to do so.
1. YouTube/Video proposal
Make a proposal video for your girlfriend utilising platforms like YouTube or other such platforms available online and send it to her through an email on V-day. Ensure that the mail seems work-related so that when she opens the link and sees the video, she is surprised in the right manner.
2. Take her on a romantic getaway
Spend the entire V-day with her, go on a romantic getaway, do the things she loves and finally at the end of the day propose to her and you are sure to get a positive answer from her. This is a classic but a highly romantic way to propose your girlfriend.
3. Make it adventurous and fun for her
Why not plan a treasure hunt game for your girlfriend? The treasure at the end of the game would be the ring and your proposal. So prepare exciting clues for her to solve and turn your proposal day into a thrilling and memorable day for the two of you.
4. Utilise the radio for the proposal
You can get in touch with the radio station and take their help in proposing to your girlfriend on V-day. Tell them to play her favourite song, followed by your proposal and a call to your girlfriend for her answer to your proposal. Just make sure your girl is listening to the radio at the right time.
5. Alarm proposal
What you can do is get hold of your girlfriend’s phone for a while and prepare a sweet and romantic alarm for her on V-day. The alarm can convey your love for her and your proposal for marriage. It will be a great surprise for her at the beginning of the day.
6. Flash mob proposal
Get together with a group of friends and relatives to prepare a flash mob performance for your girlfriend on V-day. So bring her to the decided place, dance for her along with the people and then propose to her at the end of the performance.
7. Take a trip down the memory lane
Pick one of the rooms in your house and decorate it with souvenirs which represent your love for each other. Even stick photos of the two of you on the walls or balloons. Once ready, take your girlfriend to the room and pop the question to her.
8. Do a countdown until the main day
Like 14 or 10 days before V-day, you can start sending her cute and romantic gifts on each day. On the proposal day, you can either take her out on a date or you can prepare a meal for her especially with your own hands and ask her to marry you as the ultimate gift.
9. Use flowers to capture her heart
By flowers, we actually mean roses, as these represent love and romance. But you can use any flower which your girlfriend loves. Spread the flowers (lots of them) all over the house when your girlfriend is not there. When she returns, she will be surprised to see the flowers and you there in the midst of the flowers down on your knees with the ring in your hand.
10. Propose to her with your mesmerising words
If you love writing and are extremely romantic when it comes to expressing your love in words, then you can write letters for your girlfriend. You can place the letters with meaningful thoughts in different places at home on V-day, so that she can search for them one by one. The last card of course will have the question you want to ask her: Will you be mine forever?
11. Unique T-shirt proposal
Design a creative and extraordinary t-shirt with your message on it and wear it inside a jacket on V-day. When you go out to a romantic place with your girlfriend, you can reveal your t-shirt to her and wait for her to respond with a ‘yes’ to your proposal.
12. Cute pet proposal
Are you aware of what her favourite animal is? If yes, then you can simply adopt one and use it to convey your marriage proposal to your girlfriend. You can add your love message on a banner or the collar and gift her a cute pet along with your heart.
13. Skywriting proposal
Interested to do something out of the box? Then you can contact a company that specialises in skywriting and propose to your girlfriend with its help. It is one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring ways to propose to someone.
14. Recreate the very first date with your girlfriend
The first day you started dating officially is obviously very special for both of you. So try to recreate that memorable first date by wearing similar clothes, going to the same places, listening to the same music, having the same kind of food and ultimately propose to her.
15. Sing a song for her to propose
You do not have to be a professional to sing a song for your loved one. You can sing one of her favourite songs or an original song for her and propose to her at the end of it. This will be extremely special for your girlfriend.
