Handmade Valentine with proposal: Embrace the tradition of the holiday and make a handmade Valentine card that includes the marriage proposal. Write words from your heart and include special romantic quotes or poems from classic literature. You can easily get supplies for handmade Valentines at the craft or scrapbooking stores. You can even make a lovely Valentine with items from many local grocery stores, such as construction paper, markers, and lace doilies.

Valentine proposal video: Make a video tribute to your love, let her know why you want to marry her and then ask the big question.
Give her a special bouquet and hide the ring among the flowers. Make sure the ring is secure and will be visible when she looks at her flowers. One way to do that is to fasten the ring on a floral decoration in the bouquet or tied onto a stuffed animal that comes with the bouquet.
Create a Valentine theme treasure hunt with the grand prize being the engagement ring. Lead her through a hunt for little romantic gifts with clue cards that talk about your relationship and what she means to you. Let her think she is simply hunting for her main Valentine gift, and then surprise her with the ring and proposal when she finds the treasure.
