With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and what with it being one of the most popular days of the year to propose, we have put together a few proposal ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
PLANNING IS EVERYTHING
A good place to start when it comes to thinking of the best way to pop the question is thinking back on memories that the two of you have together, from places you’ve visited or even places you’ve always wanted to go. These are both great starting points for you to plan the perfect engagement. Of course, you don’t want to give away the big secret so try not to be too obvious with what you are planning and don’t make it too out of character. You could tie in your engagement plans with something you already have arranged like a holiday, a trip or an occasion, or even just a day out to the zoo if that is something your partner enjoys.
PERHAPS A LITTLE SOMETHING CLOSER TO HOME
There are of course some cosier ideas that could play out in the comfort of your own home to make the occasion a little more intimate. How about ordering a puzzle to do on a Saturday night together with the words ‘Will you marry me?’ printed on it. Alternatively how about cooking your partner their favourite meal and asking them over dessert or even attaching the ring to your furry friends collar and sending them into the room wearing a personalised ‘Will you marry me?’ t-shirt. Whatever way you choose, make sure it’s something that you’ll both love and a moment you will cherish.
A NEW IDEA?
Another way to make your proposal that bit more special is with Drakes ‘Diamonds with a Promise’ collection. This collection was created with you in mind and is the perfect way for both you and your partner to be involved in the choosing of the engagement ring. The idea is that you can choose the perfect loose diamond and then both return to store together at a later date to find the perfect setting for it. This helps to ensure that you won’t buy something that your partner doesn’t like and that it is made to the correct size. Visit our store to find out more about our new ‘Diamonds with a Promise’ collection or read more here.
With that said, all of us here at Drakes Plymouth would like to wish you good luck with your Valentines proposal and we look forward to seeing you in store soon to celebrate the good news!
