How To Propose Over The Festive Period?
Updated: Apr 13
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! There is truly something in the air at this time of year that is magical! The idea of snow falling, Christmas lights twinkling and keeping wrapped up cosy and warm is enough to see why it’s a perfect opportunity to pop the question! And now that the world is opening up again, your options for proposing are much more in your favour.
So, just how could you use this magic to help you propose? These are some romantic ways to propose at Christmas!
Pop the Ring in her Stocking
Who couldn’t be in love with the idea of this? If you both take the time on Christmas morning to open your stockings together then this could be the perfect opportunity! Just remember to make sure she opens this present at the end - save the best till last!
Christmas Lights Proposal
Picture this. Walking the streets with the best Christmas lights, even take a trip to a city near you with a big show of lights. Get your partner to wrap up all cosy and warm and play a game of your favourite light display! They also make the perfect backdrop! (bonus points if it snows, but this is out of your control!)
Christmas Lights “Will You Marry Me” Proposal
Why not up your game and spell out the big question in fairy lights? Either at home or somewhere with a significant meaning to you both. Remember to get a friend on board with this one, to capture the moment on camera for you to keep forever!
A “Love Actually” Moment- On The Doorstep!
This is one your partner definitely wouldn't be expecting, and everyone loves this classic Christmas movie scene!
Under The Mistletoe
It’s not Christmas without a kiss under the mistletoe! Why not ask your partner to close their eyes, and they open them you're there on one knee! That will be one memorable mistletoe moment.
Christmas Tree Farm Proposal
Choosing a Christmas tree is a fun and special activity on its own, so why not make the day even more memorable? You could suggest asking a friend to sneak along and capture the special moment on camera for you. You could then get this printed and framed as a Christmas present! Remember to pick a good tree to pop the question by, as it will definitely be the one you’re taking home!
For Winter proposal ideas you could try hitting the slopes!
If you are both big skiing fans then this could be for you! Imagine the view from the snow covered mountains, simply breathtaking! Just be careful not to lose the ring during the excitement, in the snow!! If skiing isn’t for you, even a simple yet scenic walk could be perfect! Maybe take some words on a board… this will make for the perfect selfie afterwards!
Is it bad to Propose on Christmas?
No matter the season, you need to figure out what your partner would like. Would it be surrounded by friends and family or a more private occasion? Keep this in mind if you have a very busy Christmas schedule.
Christmas is an extremely popular time of year to propose, so make sure your proposal stands out from the rest. That doesn’t mean go over the top but do something that would mean the world to your partner and will be memorable forever.
If your Christmas day is looking very busy, maybe planning for Christmas Eve or Boxing Day so the Christmas celebrations continue, or even New Year’s Eve. That way, you can really end the year and start a new one with a pop!
