Love is complicated, and with Valentine's Day approaching, the hype around the romantic holiday can make you feel like you're being pressured to conform to the rituals of gift giving or planning a celebration.

Sometimes the best way to show your partner how much you love and care for them is just by spending time with them, whether it's on the couch at home or on a romantic getaway.

To inspire you and get you "in the mood for love," Holiday Cottages came up with a fun, tricky brain teaser inspired by a couple on a country-side weekend break.  

The pair are on a romantic trip to an idyllic cottage, and the man is planning on proposing to his girlfriend. However, right when he's about to go through with the proposal during dinnertime, he realizes that he’s misplaced the diamond engagement ring.

Your task is to help him locate the ring so he can get down on one knee before his partner finds it first and the surprise is ruined. You will also need to find a few other Valentine’s paraphernalia, including a box of chocolate, a gift box, a Valentine's Day card, and a single rose.

On average, it takes 3 minutes and 54 seconds to find all of the items. How quickly can you find the ring and the other items?

The puzzle is more complicated than it appears, so don't fret if you weren't able to solve it in under four minutes.

If you're still having trouble finding the ring and the rest of the items, we've found them all for you and marked them with green circles.
