Christmas Proposal Ideas

Proposing any time of year is special, but the holiday season always has a little more magic. The snow, the lights and the festive spirit all make the winter holidays one of the most popular times of year to get engaged.

There are plenty of opportunities to incorporate a proposal into the year-end celebrations and make the season even more memorable for you and your significant other.

Shop for the perfect Engagement Ring

An Ornament Keepsake

Decorating the tree together can be a romantic task. Play music, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy hanging the ornaments together while slipping a special one just for her into the mix. Consider purchasing a beautiful silver ornament and having it engraved with "Will You Marry Me?" and the year. Or, create your own by purchasing a glass ball ornament from a craft store and painting the question on the side. When she reaches for the next ornament to hang, place it in her hand.

Is the tree already decorated? Place the ornament on the tree one evening and put the engagement ring around the top. Ask her to find the special ornament you just added and prepare to be on one knee once she finds it. The ornament will then serve as a memento of the proposal to hang on your tree for years to come.

The Gift of Love

Making a special gift to lead into the proposal is a perfect way to set the tone for the special moment. Make something unique to be the last present she opens. Consider a small scrapbook of pictures of your relationship, or a booklet detailing 100 reasons you love her. The gift will stay close to her heart well into the future.

Another option is to wrap the ring itself and present it to her as a gift. A wrapped small ring box is simple and classic, while placing the ring in a larger box packed with decoy items adds an element of surprise.

The Lights of the Season

The holidays provide a beautiful backdrop of lights and displays that set a magical mood, making them perfect to incorporate into the proposal. Consider spending an evening touring a local display in a park. Live near a quaint downtown area? Take a stroll down the street to admire the lights and window or yard displays. A carriage ride through the city showcasing the holiday decorations is also romantic and cozy, creating a lasting memory.

Under the Mistletoe

The holiday tradition of kissing under the mistletoe bodes well for setting up romantic moments. Slip her a note telling her to meet you under the mistletoe, where you'll be waiting with a ring. Or arrange for it to hang in an unexpected place, whether at home or a place you're visiting for the evening. The proposal will turn an expectation for a simple kiss into a significant moment to retell for years.

The holiday season is always ripe with romantic possibility, but no matter how you choose to propose, the moment will always be unique to you and the woman you love.
