Marriage Proposal Scavenger Hunt Ideas

by Ariana Cherry-Shearer

Proposing to the one you love is a very special moment in your life. It is tough to create the perfect proposal moment at the right time in the right place. One adventurous way to propose to that special person in your life is by sending her on a scavenger hunt. It will create a memory you will never forget.

Letters and Treasures

Give your girlfriend a letter explaining you have organized a fun game for her and it will lead her to a surprise at the end. Start with a letter that includes a hint that leads her to the next hiding spot for the next clue. The hunt can be throughout the house, leading her to little treasures and mini notes, that finally lead her to the big special moment of you giving her an engagement ring.

Giftbox Fun

Begin with a large box and wrap several boxes inside of each other. Inside each box, place a hint or treasure that will lead to the smallest box holding the engagement ring. Hints can include a slip of paper that shares a detail about your relationship, an item from a special outing or favorite restaurant, a poem, flowers or dove ornaments to remind her of weddings. Once she gets to the last small box, you then can be ready to propose.

Adventure Through Town

Create a map or list of directions that your girlfriend must follow. Take her on a romantic trip that includes the place where you first met, a favorite restaurant, a favorite shopping store, or places that the two of you both frequent. At each place, leave a treasure or lead her to a person she must talk to so that she can retrieve the next hint. The last stop will be the place where you will propose to her.
