Ok, so I’m not proposing. But I bought him a man-gagement ring (he’s been asking about one, so I got him a pretty inexpensive one) and I am trying to think of cute ways I can give it to him. I’ve been looking up ways online (because I never thought I would be surprising a man with a ring, so I don’t really have ideas stockpiled…) but they all involve actually asking the question, so most of them are not cute otherwise.
He went flew back home for a few days, and is coming home tomorrow. I figured this would be a good time to give it to him because he proposed to me the night I got back from visiting over Christmas. He didn’t do anything special (he was too excited to give it to me), so I can’t even copy what he did.
I was thinking about tying it to our cat’s neck, but I know she would get it off and lose it. Maybe make his favorite dessert and put it in there, but I don’t know how people do that without getting the ring all dirty/sticky/gross.
I’m looking for a completely cheesy and cute thing to do, so all those cheesy cliche marriage proposals you’ve heard of, let me have them!

Hmm, maybe a treasure hunt? You could write up some clues and maybe hide other little treats around, and have him find the ring at the end.
Or tie it to a bunch of balloons..
Hide it under his pillow
Put in an empty cookie/cracker box and ask him to go get you a cookie..
I’ve given my DH 3 rings other then his original band, because he just loves to lose rings, I’ve always just handed them to him, or grabbed his hand and slid it on his finger..I’m not overly romantic

Go light sky lanterns together and give it to him then? I don’t know I’m just trying to think of ideas tht my guy mentioned as ways he thought about proposing to me 🙂

@shrubfish09: I like the “Honey… will you grab me a drink?” and have it in the fridge just cause I’m ALWAYS asking my man to get me stuff. 😛
You could slip it onto his finger while he sleeps.
OOO! Or if he’s a big tv watcher, you could take the batteries out of the remote and put it in there! Then when he tries to turn on the tv he’ll check the batteries and find it!
Or if he asks you for a beer you could put it in the bottom of a beer mug like guys do with champagne!

@MexiPino: Oooh, I really like the remote one! It will definitely be unexpected. And I thought about the beer one too, but then what if he doesn’t want one? (Who am I kidding, he’ll want one! lol)
