Pack a romantic picnic and take your partner to a scenic location like a park or beach. Set a blanket, and bring some of your girlfriend’s favorite delicious food.

Write a love letter and place it in a bottle. You could place the bottle in the ocean or a river or hide it somewhere special that your partner will discover. When your partner opens the bottle and reads your letter, they’ll find a proposal at the end.

Here are some sample proposal ideas you could use for the message in a bottle:

  • Life’s adventure is always better with you. I couldn’t imagine continuing the adventure with you every step of the way. Will you marry me and continue this journey with me forever?
  • From the moment at (insert where you both met), I knew my life would change for the better. Will you make it even more remarkable by marrying me?
  • I’ve treasured you since that cute smile at (insert where you met or a particular day she smiled). Will you make me the happiest person in the world by saying ‘yes’ to spending forever with me?

Have you ever ridden in a hot air balloon? I wanted to save this for the last, but it kept popping up in my head, so I put it down. This idea is one of the best ideas if you’re looking to make your proposal memorable.

The experience of riding in a hot air balloon is breathtaking, peaceful, and exhilarating as you soar above the world and take in the stunning views. 

It’s definitely something someone who isn’t scared of heights will enjoy. Hopefully, your woman isn’t scared of heights.

Float above the picturesque scenery with your partner on a hot air balloon ride, and make your proposal in the clouds for a truly unforgettable moment. This is a unique and romantic way to pop the question that your partner will never forget. It’s going to be a moment both of you will forever cherish.
