With Christmas nearly here, people all over the country are preparing to pop the question - and who could blame them? The beautiful Christmas lights are on, the mulled wine is flowing; it’s a truly fabulous and romantic time of year. The possibilities of how to do it are endless but we thought we would mention a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing! Of course, all that really matters is that your other half says yes so whichever way you do it, we wish you all the best and of course, a merry Christmas!
Use the Christmas Tree
Who doesn’t love to unwrap presents under the Christmas tree? This is an exciting time for anyone so why not use the tree to help you with your proposal? You could hang the ring on the Christmas tree for your other half to find or burying it at the bottom of their stocking. You could also hand it to them when decorating the tree and watch their face wash over with shock and excitement when they realise what you handed them was not an ornament.
A Series of Gifts
Why not buy a number of small presents, which may not cost much but are meaningful to the two of you and let your other half unwrap one after the other. This will hopefully result in some laughs and giggles. Then end the unwrapping with your engagement ring as the last present.
On the Doorstep
This is quite a classic proposal idea, especially around Christmas and great if you prefer to have some intimacy as it’s likely to be just the two of you. Ensure your door is nicely decorated and maybe include a mistletoe too!
A Christmas Day Experience
Plan a day (or night) of Christmas activities such as ice skating, yummy meal, listening to some Christmas carollers; let the Christmas spirit take you. Then end the day with the best part - your proposal!
