How to sweep her off her feet this Christmas
You’ve got plenty of romantic options at Christmas time. You could propose in the snow (fingers crossed), or while you’re snuggled up warm and cosy by the fire. But we think our most magical option for this time of year has to be under the Christmas tree.
Our top ten Christmas proposal ideas
1. Propose with an advent calendar
Ok, this one takes a bit of forward planning but the look on her face when she opens the last door will be worth it. You could either go for a total surprise and sneakily replace the chocolate behind door 24 with a beautiful, sparkly ring, or get creative and make your own advent calendar. Re-useable style advent calendars work great for this. Fill each drawer with a special gift, memory or romantic note, then get the champagne ready for when she opens the last one.
2. Go to an outdoor ice rink
Even though it might not be Central Park, outdoor ice-rinks and Christmas go hand-in-hand. It goes without saying that she’ll expect some pretty fancy footwork here, but if you’re not quite Torville and Dean, enjoy some giggles together and then pop the question whilst you relax with a glass of mulled wine afterwards.
3. In a Christmas bauble
Extra surprises are always good, so why not hide your engagement ring in a special Christmas bauble and secretly hang it on the tree on Christmas Eve. Once she’s finished unwrapping all of her presents, tell her there’s one more gift on the tree that she has to find.
4. Under the mistletoe
Whether it’s at a Christmas party, night out, or at home - when the moment’s right, asking her to marry you under the mistletoe couldn’t be more romantic.
5. While choosing a Christmas tree
We love this part of Christmas, the excitement is just beginning and there’s something special about choosing your Christmas tree together. Visit the tree farm beforehand and decorate your favourite with lots of tinsel and perhaps a sign saying ‘marry me’. When you go back together, let her find the tree and be ready with the ring box, before whisking her away for a romantic lunch nearby to celebrate.
6. At the Christmas markets
It could be something to do with the cute, wooden chalets, the Christmas carols or all that mulled wine, but the Christmas markets seem to conjure the very essence of the festive spirit. Wrap up warm and wander through cinnamon-scented streets together until you find the perfect place to propose.
7. Make a Christmas cracker
Whether you’re having Christmas dinner for two or with the whole family, crackers on the table are a must. Making your own Christmas crackers is really easy, just fill hers with plenty of sparkles, the ring and, of course, a witty joke. There’s only one catch – you’ll have to make sure she wins the pull!
8. In her Christmas stocking
Giving a whole new meaning to ‘stocking filler’, putting the ring at the bottom of her Christmas stocking is adorable and means that you can enjoy the rest of the day sharing the news with family and friends. Fill the stocking with romantic treats and leave it ‘magically’ by the side of her bed. Be sure to include the obligatory tangerine, walnut and chocolate coins though.
9. Propose on Christmas Eve
Christmas Eve is always a good night out as the excitement builds for the big event. Take her to a lovely restaurant or your favourite local pub and have fun soaking up the atmosphere together. When the moment’s right, get down on one knee and make her the happiest girl in the room. The mistletoe option also works well here!
10. Enlist Santa’s help
No matter how old we get, we always believe in the magic of Christmas. Leave a mince pie and a carrot out for Santa and Rudolf and, once the coast is clear, sneak back downstairs. Once the mince pie has been munched and the carrot chomped, leave a trail of snowy footprints that lead to a beautiful ring box.
Because choosing the perfect present can sometimes be difficult, our Buyers (Santa’s little helpers) have put together their predictions of the most wished-for gifts this Christmas. Guaranteed to tick all the right boxes no matter who you’re shopping for, we’ll reveal two top gifts to you each week of the Christmas countdown.

Stone of the month, Tazanite
Discovered in 1967 by a Masai tribesman, this beautiful blue stone is found in only one place on earth – in the foothills of the awe-inspiring Mount Kilimanjaro. Rarer than a diamond, Tiffany & Co fell in love with its beautiful transparent blue to purple colour and exquisite clarity and named it Tanzanite after its country of origin, Tanzania. Showcasing a stunning, rich colour that will rival even that of a sapphire, the real magic of tanzanite is revealed when it moves, showing three different colours when viewed from different angles.
