Whether you had to cancel your proposal plans due to a lockdown from a pandemic because you wanted a good backdrop for the most critical question you’ll ever ask someone. COVID-19 has made it difficult for many people looking to pop the question.
We know that you want your proposal to be perfect, which is why we’re here to reassure you that COVID-19 doesn’t mean you have to put a hold on your plans.
Let’s take a look at some fun ways you can present the engagement ring to your significant other during the COVID-19 pandemic.
1.Treasure Hunt Proposals
If you live with your partner, setting up a treasure hunt in your house is a playful and romantic way to present an engagement ring. You can hide love notes around the house with hidden riddles or stick clues to sentimental items that eventually lead to your loved one finding the ring you’ve chosen.
We love this idea for couples who love playing games together, mainly if you know your partner loves puzzles and riddles. What’s more, you can make the treasure hunt as long or as short as you like and incorporate all your favorite memories along the way. We also recommend holding on to your treasure hunt items for the wedding, as they make great mementos of your journey together!
2. Involve Your Pets
Whether you’ve just brought a new furry friend into your life or you’ve been living with your animal pal for years, one of the most romantic proposal ideas for animal lovers involves getting your pet to “ask” the question for you. Collar tags that say “will you marry me?” or something even cuter like “will you marry my mum/dad/parent?” are sure to get the happy tears flowing.
3. A Special Meal
The pandemic doesn’t mean you can’t cook up a storm for your loved one. Whether you choose to serve them breakfast in bed, put together a delicious afternoon tea treat, or craft an exquisite three-course meal during the evening, there are so many ways you can pop the question. You can buy stencils to write “will you marry me?” on dessert or coffees, or you could even serve the ring alongside the meal for your loved ones to open themselves.
4. DIY Spa Day
If your significant other is missing the spa, then a home spa day can be the perfect setup for your proposal. There are a wide variety of DIY spa products you can use at home, and you can even give your loved ones a romantic massage to help them unwind and relax before they hop into the relaxing bath you’ve drawn for them. Leave a pile of fresh, fluffy towels for them and their favorite bathrobe, remembering to hide the ring in one of the pockets.
This idea is also fantastic if you want to set up a surprise elsewhere in the house, as seeing you presenting the engagement rings will be the perfect way to end their pamper session.
5. Surprise Them!
The most straightforward home proposal idea is to let your partner walk ahead of you while you prepare the ring in your pocket before you call their name and they turn around to see you on one knee. We love this romantic yet straightforward idea and, after your wedding, your loved one is bound to subconsciously feel their wedding ring or wedding band every time they move through this particular spot.
