Every individual is unique in the fact that they have their own set of hobbies and interests. If you’re looking for a unique way to pop the question to your significant other, it could be useful to look at what hobbies they are invested in as a way to figure out something personalized to them. There are so many different routes to go down when it comes to proposal ideas with different hobbies, and it’s definitely a chance to get creative in your approach to popping the question.
If your loved one is an avid reader, there are several ways you can incorporate this into popping the question. The first way is to take your significant other to her favorite bookstore or library for the scene of the proposal. Another option is to put something like a personalized proposal bookmark that says “will you marry me?” into the current book she’s reading. Slipping this in there means she’ll get an amazing surprise the next time she goes to pick up where she left off reading.
If your future spouse is a fitness fanatic, this is another hobby worth adding into your proposal plans. If your future fiancé goes to fitness classes, you can show up outside of it with flowers, a cold water, and a ring. If the two of you like to exercise together, consider booking a fitness class with a professional instructor for the two of you to do together privately, using that as the perfect venue for your proposal.
3. Cooking and Baking
If your loved one is great in the kitchen and has a passion for food, take this hobby to the next level by involving it in your proposal. You can do so by having a private cooking lesson and using that as the method for the proposal, gifting your future spouse an apron that says, “Future Mr./Mrs.,” or enlisting in the help of a local bakery to create a cookie or cake that assists in popping the question. All of these are fun options that involve food and the kitchen for your proposal.
4. Board Games
Board games are a fun hobby, and it’s easy to turn this concept into a proposal idea. Create a memory game that acts as a proposal, make your own board game that depicts your relationship with the winning prize being the ring, or have a puzzle made that poses the question of marriage. Not only does this play on the hobby of loving board games, but it will be fun and memorable for the two of you to do together.
For a partner who loves sports, there are several ways to tailor your proposal to this hobby. The first option is to get them a jersey for their favorite team and instead of a name on the back, put “Marry Me?”. Another option is to pop the question at an actual sports game. You could also design and print a sports game ticket that says “Will you marry me?” on it for their favorite team if you can’t actually attend a sports game. All of these are clever ideas to incorporate a love of sports into this monumental moment.
Many couples love to travel, and if this fits the bill for you and your future spouse, it’s a great hobby to incorporate into your proposal. This can be done in several ways. First, if you’re feeling crafty, create a passport with mementos and photos from past trips that the two of you have enjoyed together. On the last page, pose the question of whether your partner is ready to commit to being travel partners for life, or put an empty frame labeled as a spot for your honeymoon photos. You could also do this in the form of an electronic slideshow instead of a physical book if desired.
All of these are fun proposal ideas that are tailored specifically to what your partner likes to do, which is both thoughtful and fun.
