9 Creative & Unique Proposal Ideas That’ll Get You A “Yes”
It can be daunting figuring out what to do when you “pop the question”. Sometimes, you can plan all you want and end up winging it because something went wrong on the big day, or you’re scared that your partner may say “no”. Don’t worry. The first thing you need to do is relax. We’ve got you covered because we know how special asking someone to marry you can be. So, we’ve compiled a list of 9 creative & unique proposal ideas that’ll get you a “Yes!” when the time comes.
1. First Date Throwback
Why not recreate your first date, no matter what it was, for your proposal? Reminiscing on the day you first met will surely work its magic and worm its way into your partner’s heart. It’ll show how much you’ve grown together and how far you’ve both come since that first fateful day. It’s a sure-fire way to show your partner that you care about them and all the memories you’ve made together. Recreating that special first date will truly spell-bind your partner and guarantee you a “yes”.
2. A Scavenger Hunt
Although it’s a trending method of popping the question, it’s also one of the most unique because it can be personalised for you and your partner. Not only that, you can even do it in your own home! You can cater the scavenger hunt to the things that matter the most to the both of you, and you won’t have to spend too much money making the props for the hunt. It can be as easy as just leaving notes around the house that leads them to the ultimate gift: the ring. It’ll take some time and effort and a lot of secrecy, but it’ll be worthwhile when you hear that one little three-letter word.

3. Do It By Candlelight
One of the most famous proposals on TV was Friends’ Monica & Chandler’s, where Monica was the one who proposed to Chandler in their apartment, surrounded by candles. It was intimate, it was meaningful, and despite the ups and downs in the episode, it was magical. Candles are the best mood-setters for romantic gestures. So, cover your home in them and get down on one knee when your partner walks through that door. Just be careful not to set your house/apartment on fire!
4. Plan A Birthday Surprise
If you’re stuck on ideas for when to propose, why not do it on their birthday. It’ll definitely be a surprise! Not only will emotions be running high, thanks to the day’s celebration, but if you plan a big birthday party with all your family and friends, you’ll be sure that the surprise will be extra special! Plus, you could get them to help you with the proposal too! They could secretively drop hints or make a big spectacle with you. If you’re not great with crowds, then propose an intimate birthday dinner. No matter what it is, a proposal as a birthday present will be a success!
5. Have A Picnic
One of the most romantic things you could do is plan a picnic on the beach or in a park, somewhere that screams romance. Picnics are fun date night ideas that can be turned into a romantic proposal setting. The pillows and blankets, the flowers and grass, and the food and drink will all add to the romantic atmosphere. Your partner wouldn’t even know what hit them. Better yet, get someone on standby to film the proposal so that you can reminisce on the day and how special it was.
6. Do It At Sunrise/Sunset
Whether you’re both an early riser or a night owl, proposing at sunrise or sunset can be the most magical thing. There’s a reason why they’re both called the “golden hour” because the world will be alight with that unique colour that makes you think anything can happen. And when you propose, that anticipation will be heightened, and you’ll guarantee they’ll say “Yes”, even as you ask the questions!
7. Take Them On A Trip
One of the best ways to propose to your partner is by taking them on holiday or a road trip. You can even use the landmarks as hints to what you want to do at the end of the journey. Do your research, find the most romantic spots in town, and see if they can guess the theme before you pop the question. It’s a fun way to propose, especially if you’re both travel junkies. You can revisit all the places you’ve been to, and it’ll be a great way to experience the world and all its cultures. Not only that, but you can even hide the question in the places you visit!
8. Say It On A Special Day
You can be sure that the most memorable and romantic days of the year are Christmas, New Year’s Day and Valentine’s Day, so why not ride those high emotions and propose? Like a birthday surprise, you can share the moment with family and friends, or if you’d prefer a more intimate setting, just the two of you. You can propose when the clock strikes 12 on New Year’s Eve or hide the ring amongst the presents under the Christmas tree, or even show up at your partner’s workplace with a box of chocolates and flowers. The possibilities are endless, and with the special meanings of those days, you’ll be sure they’ll say “yes”.
9. Customise your Favourite Activity
If you’re gaming fans, why not make a game that leads them to the ultimate quest, where you pop the question? If you’re into film and TV, why not arrange a private screening, where you propose to them on the big screen? If you’re into sports, why not play on opposite teams, fake an injury, and propose while you’re on the ground? Customising your favourite activity will be a sure-fire way to get them to say “yes”. You’ll both be running on adrenaline, and you can be sure they’ll be surprised.
Make It Yours
No matter how you propose, make it unique to you. So, gather your ideas, combine, mix and match and create your own style and method because, at the end of the day, you’re proposing to the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and knowing that they want that too is all you need to know. Just remember, keep it a secret, and don’t let them know until the time comes when you get down on that knee and present them with that gorgeous ring!
