Romantic Ideas for a Valentine’s Day Engagement

Romantic Ideas for a Valentine’s Day Engagement

Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to celebrate your love for your partner and ask them to be yours forever. You can take your engagement in a detailed direction or keep things simple. If you want something unique that will make your partner feel special and loved, consider one of these ideas:

Make a candlelit dinner for two

You may be thinking, "Wow, this is a lot of work for something that doesn't involve any physical contact." But hear us out: setting the mood is important. You don't want your dinner interrupted by a text from your mom wanting to know if you've finished yet. You want to focus on each other and enjoy this special moment!

The first step is making sure that everything looks perfect—and it should look perfect because you're making dinner for two! This means setting the table with cloth napkins, colorful plates or bowls (no plastic here), and candles in glass holders (not plastic). Make sure there's enough room between all these elements so they can breathe. And finally (and most importantly), light those candles!

Hide the ring in a box of Valentine’s chocolates

This is an excellent idea if you plan to propose on Valentine's Day. You can hide the ring in a box of chocolates and give it to your partner after dinner.

You will need the following:

  • A small ring box (a jewelry store will have these)

  • A ring that fits your finger that you want to propose on

Name a star after your partner

Here’s how to name a star after your partner:

  • If you're unsure where to start, check out the International Star Registry. Their website will allow you to choose a star name and print out a certificate with your name on it—but there is a catch. While some of their certificates come with an official-looking stamp that says “Registered in the United States Patent Office,” this doesn't mean anything. They can only legally sell them in their home state of Ohio because of their business license requirements (yes, really).

  • The best way to go about this is by using NASA's online tool for naming stars, which allows users access to over 20 million stars that have been discovered through space telescopes operated by the agency itself or satellites launched into orbit by various countries around the world (e.g., China).

  • You'll need some information first: Your partner's full legal name (first and last), birthdate, and location where they were born so that astronomers know exactly what part of space they should look for when naming it after them (the coordinates must be entered correctly!). These details should be sent along with any money sent via PayPal or mailed directly into their bank account listed below; once completed successfully--and assuming there are no errors along the way--you should receive a confirmation shortly afterward!

Recreate your first date or where you first said “I love you.”

If you want to recreate the scene where your relationship began, this is a great way to do it. Start with a story about your first date and recreate the setting together. If you can't remember what happened that day, ask friends there for details. Then talk about how you knew he loved her—whether it was his attention or how he listened intently to everything she said. Make sure this isn't just an event that happened once; make it something that continues to occur in your relationship today!

After reliving some memories from when you met, try reenacting another moment: For example, maybe one of the first times he told her he loved her was at a park on a picnic blanket under an oak tree. Do something similar now so she can experience that same feeling again!

Rent matching sweaters and snuggle up on the couch

Rent matching sweaters, and then snuggle up on the couch. Snuggling is a great way to get in touch with each other’s bodies and an excellent way to celebrate your mutual appreciation for cuddling. You might talk about your relationship, how you met, and what makes you want to spend the rest of your life together. It doesn’t matter if you just started dating or have been married for decades; this is a good time to ask yourself if there are things that could be improved in your relationship or if there are ways in which you want it to grow. It can also be nice to relax after a long week at work, so watch a movie while holding hands!

Take a romantic walk while listening to love songs on the radio

It's always nice to have music playing in the background as you walk with your partner, but this time you can take it a step further and listen to love songs that remind you of your relationship.

Write out your feelings in a love letter

  • Write out your feelings in a love letter.

  • Use the words you would say to your partner if you were face to face.

  • Write your love letter in the form of a poem.

  • Include something personal to you and your partner.

Simply pop the question without fanfare by asking, “Will you marry me?” section. The romantic mood will take care of itself. (If you’re unsure how to pop the question, check out our guide.)

If you’re ready to make a lifelong commitment, ask: “Will you marry me?”

  • Ask in a quiet moment. The right time is when you are both relaxed and have few distractions.

  • Ask in a romantic setting. Don’t do it in public or when your partner is busy doing something else! Pick an appropriate place and use props like flowers or jewelry to set the mood and make your proposal more memorable.

Engaging on Valentine's Day is a charming celebration, but it doesn't have to be elaborate.

If you’re planning to engage on Valentine's Day, it’s important to remember that while this day is a special occasion, the engagement itself doesn't have to be elaborate. You don't need to break the bank or pull out all the stops—you can create a romantic atmosphere without spending much money.

A dinner date at home is one way to make it feel like an evening out without spending much money. For example, you could make reservations for dinner at your favorite neighborhood restaurant and then stay in with some boxed wine (or sparkling cider) and cheese plates from Whole Foods on Valentine's Day night.

Another option is cooking together as part of an engagement celebration; this may require more time than going out for food. It can also be much more rewarding because it allows both people to contribute their talents toward creating something beautiful together!


We hope these ideas have given you some inspiration for how to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a couple. The key is to make it personal and fun for both of you, so don’t stress out if something doesn’t go exactly as planned. Just remember the more thought you put into something, the more memorable and unique it will be!
