Unique Promposal Ideas [Gift Guide]

Written by

Alright, it's time to get your head in the game! The biggest social gathering of your high school career is fast-approaching and you need to lock down a date for the big day. It's PROM for goodness' sake! Some of your peers have waited their whole student career to attend such an event, so sheepishly blurting out the big question in between class periods just won't fly anymore. It's time to step up your game if you want to not only secure a date, but create a fond memory for your crush. Hence, the era of the promposal! A promposal should involve props, puns, and plenty of ingenuity, so don't even think about sending that lame text you just typed out. If you haven't thought of a promposal idea worthy of earning you a date (and the Instagram fame you've always dreamed of), don’t sweat it. We have plenty of promposal enthusiasts in the office, so we're always churning out creative ways to ask your crush to prom (promposals weren't a thing when we were in high school, okay?!). So, no need to lose sleep over crafting the most ingenious promposal; just keep reading for inspiration that guarantees your date will reply with a resounding “YES!”


Disney Promposal Ideas

If your intended date is enamored by the wonderful world of Disney, then call on some of your favorite cartoon characters to lend you a helping hand. Construct a promposal that will bring your crush's favorite Disney characters to life. You don't have to make the long (and expensive) journey to Disney World for the big occasion. Just use some of our Disney gifts to turn this idea into a magical reality for the both of you!

If they're a fan of Disney Princess movies, dress like a prince and try presenting her with a glass slipper and an invitation to prom. Girls, don't think that you can't send a promposal either! Maybe you could dress like Elsa and present your date-to-be with a sign that says, "Join me at prom? I'll never leave you out in the cold." Toy Story fans will find it clever if you dress up as Sheriff Woody and write the word "prom?" underneath one of your cowboy boots. Any Winnie the Pooh fans out there? If you know that your “honey” loves the pudgy yellow bear, then wear a character pajama costume while holding a sign that reads, “I'd walk a thousand acres to take you to prom!” We also have some cute Disney presents for two. A 2-pack of matching keychains is the absolute cutest, or you could give her pins or a mini backpack featuring two or more of her favorite characters. If you're looking for a simple promposal, why not present her with a cute pair of mouse ears? She'll certainly hang onto them until she can take her next Disney trip!


Star Wars Promposal Ideas

Want to make your special someone geek out during your promposal? Well, you won’t need any Jedi mind tricks to land the date of your dreams because our Star Wars gifts are some of the best in the galaxy. If the one you admire has always wanted to train to be a Jedi Master, then why not dress like Obi-Wan with a note reading, “You’re the Obi-Wan for me. Prom?” Other Star Wars characters would be great as well! Ask your date not to let you fly "Solo" as Han solo, or let them know that they're your "Rey" of sunshine. Even Princess Leia could be looking for her scruffy nerf herder!

If a costume is too bold for you, try some other subtle ideas with these cute Star Wars gift ideas. Lave a proposal on their desk or in their locker in a cute droid mug, or set up a little scene with Han and Leia Bobbleheads. These are just some ideas for you, but we're sure that you'll be able to think of something amazing! As Jedi Master Yoda would say, "Do or do not. There is no try."


Harry Potter Promposal Ideas

Hedwig Mini BackpackHarry Potter Earring SetHarry Potter MugGryffindor Quidditch Frame

An invitation to Hogwarts was what ultimately changed Harry Potter's life, so why not use the magic of Harry Potter to invite a date or friend to prom? Find out your invitee's Hogwarts House so you can make it extra special, or perhaps dress up as their favorite Harry Potter character! We also have lots of great Harry Potter gifts perfect for smaller promposal presentations. (You know, not everything is done for the 'gram and social these days!)

How cute would it be to present your invitation inside of a letter from Hedwig with this adorable Loungely mini backpack? Also, this quidditch-themed photo frame is absolutely screaming for you to write, "You're a keeper" inside of it. With cute promposal ideas like these, the work is practically done for you!


Pokémon Promposal Ideas

Luckily, snagging a date for the prom isn’t as difficult as tracking down a Charizard or a Gyrados! You won’t need to spend hours training at the gym or waiting for your starter to finally evolve. To woo your impassioned Pokémon crush, all it takes is our Pokémon products and your creativity. Orchestrate a promposal that is squee-worthy of anime fangirls everywhere by decorating their room with many adorable Pokémon Pop! figures and a poster board inscribed with the following poem: Charmanders are red, Squirtles are blue, I need the best prom date, so I choose you.

However, if you like the idea of dressing up, we have cute Pokemon kigurumis as well as a Pokeball costume and Ash Ketchum's hat! An Eevee costume with a sign that says, "You're just my type!" would be very cute, while you can easily say, "I choose you" while dressed as a Pokeball or wearing Ash's hat. (Just make sure to pull Ash's hat backward by the bill as you say the words!)


Superhero Promposal Ideas

Batman Stud EarringsIron Man Felt LetterboardCaptain Marvel Necklace and Earring SetMiles Morales Q-Fig

Let’s be real for a second: what person wouldn’t want to go to prom with a superhero...or perhaps a supervillain? We can’t inject you full of super-soldier serum or pump you with powerful gamma rays, but we can hook you up with stylish suits and bold blazers that will give you superhero swagger. Dress in an Avengers suit jacket and hold up a handmade sign that reads, “Prom would be MARVEL-ous with you.” What about a Harley Quinn invitation? "Hey Puddin! Prom?" It would also be fun to "riddle me this" your way into a prom invitation or tell your date how wonderful they are as Wonder Woman!

Of course, not everyone gets excited about formal suits and costumes. If you're looking for a more low-key promposal idea, why not try an Iron Man felt letterboard? You could write out something along the lines of, "I love you 3000", which is almost guaranteed to snag you a date. There are other Marvel gifts and DC Comics gifts just begging for your superhero promposal ideas too. You don't need to be Professor X to come up with your own idea!


Anime Promposal Ideas

Anime Promposals

Sailor Moon Tuxedo Mask CostumeAttack on Titan Mikasa CostumeSailor Moon Luna KigurumiMy Hero Academia Tsuyu Asui Hoodie
Inuyasha Kirara Plush2-Piece Sailor Moon Cup SetMy Hero Academia Midoriya FigureDemon Slayer Coffee Mug

There are so many high schoolers that love anime! How cool would it be to dress like one of your date's favorite characters when you invite them to prom? Look super cool and mysterious as Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon, or try something a little more casual with a My Hero Academia character hoodie. There are so many awesome anime gifts to get you started!

Not everyone wants to have a huge spectacle when they issue their promposal, and that's okay! Use a cute plush like Kirara to send an invitation, or leave a note inside of a cute glass or mug. (May we suggest, "In the name of the moon, I'll ask you to prom!" if you're doing something Sailor Moon?) We're sure that you can come up with plenty of other cool promposal ideas on your own!


So how will your upcoming promposal go down? Will you toss Poké Balls or wear one of our superhero suits to whisk her off of her feet? Don’t forget to tell us all about it in the comments below!
