From wow-factor settings, to tried and tested acts of romance, we share some of the best proposal ideas for Valentine’s Day.

Whether your bride-to-be likes being the centre of attention, or prefers a more subtle demonstration of affection, we’ve got plenty of ideas for the perfect Valentine’s Day proposal…

Stylish getaway…

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Sunday this year, you’ve got the perfect opportunity to whisk your better half away. You’ll have no need to tell her beforehand or book anytime off work – making it easy to plan the special surprise. Rome, Venice, Paris and London are all beautiful cities in which to pop the question and they are quick to travel to.

Fine dining proposal…

While it’s relatively common to go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day, why not make the day extra special with the perfect restaurant choice and a memorable proposal? Pick a restaurant she’s dropping hints about for months, or the poshest restaurant nearby. Alternatively, if you enjoyed a dinner date for your first rendezvous together, why not head back there? Ask the chef to write, “Will you marry me?” in chocolate sauce around the rim of her dessert plate; or if you prefer something a little more public, get down on one knee.

In a letter…

If you’re looking for a simple, yet romantic, way to pop the question, why not write her a letter? Proposing can be nerve-wracking enough, but writing your feelings down in a letter not only takes away the stresses of the big-day, it’s also guaranteed to make her swoon.

Surprise stay-over…

For those of you that like to wine and dine your lady, why not meet for a cocktail and fancy meal at a posh hotel bar – but keep her waiting for the proposal all night! When it’s time to go, casually mention that you’ve reserved a room – which you’ll have already set up for your proposal. Just don’t forget the Champagne!

Making memories…

If you both love nothing better than a cosy afternoon in, spend Valentine’s Day collating memories of your relationship in a scrapbook or time capsule. Add in old photographs, ticket stubs from events you’ve both attended, and airline tickets from your holidays. After an hour or two, mention that there’s something else you’d like to remember too – before heading out of the room to get your camera and the ring, capturing the very moment you propose.

Light up the night…

Finish your Valentine’s Day with special message for her eyes only. During the day, stick some glow in the dark letters on your ceiling, spelling out “Will you marry me?” Come night, once she thinks the excitement of Valentine’s Day is over, she’ll be treated with the biggest surprise of the day!

Where dreams come true…

For some girls, Disney is the ultimate location for a proposal. Filled with magic, there are plenty of fabulous spots across the Paris park ideal for getting down on one knee. Inside, or under the castle, is one of our favourites. You could even head out to the balcony and propose while looking out over Fantasyland.

Shower her with gifts…

If your other half loves cute and romantic gifts, this is the proposal for you. On Valentine’s morning bring her a balloon bouquet filled with rose petals or confetti. Place the ring placed inside one of the balloons, and as you pop them, she’ll be showered with rose petals, confetti and an engagement ring!

Get personal…

Make, or buy, a personalised gift to propose to your loved one. If you’re not the crafty type there are plenty of great gifts to buy at Not On The High Street. Some of our favourites included the Valentine’s babygrow, ideal if you have a little one, and the cute dog tag, for those of you with pets. The personalised socks are another fun alternative – the question is, how long will she take to notice the secret message?
