Our Top 10 Christmas Proposal Ideas
There’s not much more magical than a Christmas proposal. Our list of top ten ideas will ensure you make the most of this enchanting combination.
1. An Eve to remember
Often better than Christmas Day, Christmas Eve is the perfect time to propose. More people propose on this day than Valentine’s Day…
2. The advent calendar
The way to their Christmas-loving heart. Either go for a total surprise by replacing the chocolate behind door number 25 with a ring, or get creative and craft your own.
3. Pass the parcel
For those who love a party game. Wrap the ring box and place it inside a slightly bigger box, and repeat until it’s enough to frustrate your future husband or wife.
4. Choosing of the tree
There’s something special about choosing your Christmas tree together. Visit the tree farm beforehand and decorate your favourite with a “marry me?” sign.
5. Write it in lights
Spell out “Will you marry me?” on the roof, the lawn or the Christmas tree and wait until it gets dark before they do the big switch on. Ta-da!
6. The personalised gift
Have a t-shirt, mug, pillow, card (or anything else you can think of) adorned with “Will you marry me?” and get down on one knee as soon as they open it.
7. The Christmas bauble
Extra surprises are always good. Hide your engagement ring in a special Christmas bauble, and once they’ve finished unwrapping all their presents, tell them there’s one more gift on the tree to find.
8. A cracking Christmas
Crackers on the table are a must. Hide the ring in handmade edition and make sure you’re their pulling partner.
9. Stocking filler
A discreetly placed ring in the bottom of a Christmas stocking is probably one of the places they’ll least expect a ring to be hiding.
10. Enlist Santa’s help
We always believe in the magic of Christmas. Leave a mince pie and a carrot out for Santa and Rudolf before sneaking downstairs to replace the mince pie.
