Taking the leap and asking your other half for their hand in marriage is a daunting moment and one that should not be rushed.
It’s the moment in your relationship when everything changes, so it needs to be special and most importantly, unique to you.

Taking into account the current climate, we have also made sure that you can execute these proposal ideas at home.
Oh, and you’re going to need a ring! Take a look at our ethically made wedding and engagement rings in Fairmined Gold.
Your Favourite Walk
I may be a little bias here, as this is how I was proposed to, but there’s nothing better than getting out there and immersing yourself in nature - well, unless you get proposed to I guess! If you’re looking to surprise them with something a little more low key, then popping the question on your favourite walk would be the perfect match. Just picture it, the two of you, set against the beauty of nature...sounds pretty idyllic.
Take a Trip Down Memory Lane
Get all sentimental and harness nostalgia by taking a trip down memory lane. Recreate your favourite memory or go way back and re-imagine your first date together. Not only will it ignite some sentimental memories, but it’s completely unique to you.
If the idea of proposing in public and making a huge ordeal of it all makes your wince, there is nothing wrong with stripping it back. Just because a proposal isn’t elaborate doesn’t mean it can’t be romantic. From something as simple as a romantic breakfast in bed to a candlelit dinner at home with their favourite meal; sometimes low-key gestures can be a lot more memorable.
A little unusual, but certainly an unforgettable way to pop the question. When it comes to planning and executing a scavenger hunt proposal, the creative you are the better! Have some fun with it. The clues could all be leading to a memorable spot or perhaps a surprise trip or dinner, you could add some humour and some personal touches too to make it a moment to treasure.
Sometimes it’s easier to say how you feel on paper. Whether it’s a love letter or a poem, this timeless gesture is a beautiful low-key way of asking the all-important question. If the task of writing a love letter seems a little daunting, create a series of little notes and pop them all in a box for them to open or scatter them in different spots around the house, for them to find throughout the day.
However you decide to propose, it’s sure to be a memorable story that can be told and re-told over and over again. Of course, to propose you’re going to need a beautiful ring, so If you’re starting to look, take a peek at our ethically made wedding and engagement rings in Fairmined Gold.
