It is known as the most wonderful time of the year and surveys show that this brings out the romantic in us as it’s the most popular time to make a marriage proposal!
Christmas Eve is the favoured time for getting down on one knee and popping the question with gorgeous Solitaire Diamond Engagement Rings in small velvet boxes! The thought of a magical, winter proposal seems the stuff of fairy tales, so if you want to give it a try then here are some top romantic ideas for your festive proposal:
By the Christmas Tree
The most iconic image of Christmas is the tree, glittering with all its lights and baubles. Speaking of baubles, find one online printed with the words ‘Will you marry me?’. They can also be personalised. Hide it until hanging it on the tree on Christmas Eve. Invite her to read it and when she turns around, be ready poised with the ring whilst down on one knee.
Alternatively, wait to decorate the tree together on Christmas Eve. Give her the last bauble to hang and when she realises what it says, you can make your proposal. Shop for Solitaire Diamond Engagement Rings today.
Boxing Day Surprise
If you think Christmas Eve or Day is a bit too predictable, then pop the question when she thinks the opportunity has passed. Whatever time of day you choose to do it, she’ll most likely have given up hope after the excitement of Christmas has gone. It will be a lovely surprise and a perfect way to carry on the celebrations once Christmas has finished.
Whilst this activity can be done at any time of the year, hiding a ring box amongst other presents and having other presents act as clues to the next will turn your proposal into an exciting treasure hunt game. Your game can be as big or small as your imagination, leading outside, across town or even just at home. As she finds the last clue, be ready to get down on one knee!
This proposal idea will require some clever timing. As you open your presents on Christmas Day morning, wait until everything has been opened and sneakily pop the gift-wrapped ring box under the tree. Tell her there’s one she forgot to open and as she unwraps it, be ready to get into position beside her for the big question.
Winter wonderland walk
You can do this anytime in winter, although Christmas Eve or a post-lunch walk on Christmas Day would be extra festive. Wrap up warm and take her for a trek somewhere beautiful. Distract her with something before surprising her with a proposal on one knee when she least expects it.
