When it comes to popping the question its no longer as simple as saying those four words ‘Will you marry me?’. Nowadays, you know full well everyone will want to know the story behind it – did they get down on one knee? was it somewhere magical? did they do a romantic treasure hunt or was the ring hidden in your dessert at a picnic?
I’m pretty sure the biggest panic there used to be was to pick the perfect ring, now there is all sorts of pressure with how your going to ask the all important question.
Not to fear though, we have a few ideas hidden up our creative sleeves. But shhhh keep these secret…..
Do it like the penguins do. (romantic and cute story to follow I promise)
If you and your partner are beach lovers this could possibly be the one for you. Say it with a pebble…. maybe take them to a little spot where you have strategically placed the personalised stone for them to find.
”Humans give flowers and candy when wooing a lady. Penguins give rocks. Not just any rocks, though — male gentoo penguins search through piles of pebbles to find the smoothest, most perfect ones. When a penguin has selected his pebble, he presents it to his intended companion. If she approves, she puts the stone in her nest and the two are well on their way to becoming mommy and daddy birds. Pebbles are so important to the penguins that males often fight over the prettiest selections.”
As it happens, we have just the product for such an occasion. Our proposal pebble! These pebbles are not man-made. They are natural stones smoothed flat on river beds and hand engraved and painted to your specifications. You don’t have to have your loved ones name of course, why not put the date instead that you plan to propose on.
In the comfort of your own home
We have a great selection of personalised prints that are a wonderful way of popping the question. Why not give your ‘fiance to be’ a framed art print with the date that you plan to propose on….. it may even take them a while to realise.
