Although the festive period may be the most popular holiday for proposals, there is no reason to hold back popping the ultimate question because yours might not be as ‘special.’ An engagement is one of the most personal and memorable moments in your life, so use the magic of the season to your advantage, by crafting an unforgettable experience for both you and your partner. Here are some of the best ideas our Diamond Room team shares for proposing during the Christmas period:
Intimate Home Engagements Ideas
The home is filled with magic at Christmas time, a place to cozy up by the fire, bring the family together, or simply enjoy good food and celebration. Proposing at home can bring many advantages, offering an intimate location with fewer disruptions than public venues. So how should you do it?
Add a Diamond to her stocking
Hiding your engagement ring in a stocking is one of our favorite methods for festival surprise proposals. Just make sure to pad them up with smaller gifts and treats, so it is discreetly tucked away until the big moment! Some people are guilty of peeking before Christmas Eve, so keeping the ring out of sight until closer to the big day is always recommended.
Nestle the Ring into the tree
Christmas trees are filled with a sea of decorations, lights, and tinsel, making it an advantageous place to hide a petite engagement ring box. When you’re ready to pop the question, simply guide your significant other to the tree and tell them to search around the area you’ve nestled that precious ring into.
The ‘Classic Christmas present’ surprise
Leaving a ring under the tree is a classic Christmas Day proposal. The staple engagement played out in all the movies and advertisements, and for a good reason! Opening presents is usually a very family-focused occasion, where everyone in the household draws away from distractions and comes together to share gifts. If you’re looking for an intimate moment with your partner’s full attention, this old hat trick is a flawless method for an unforgettable proposal.
