How to propose at Christmas 

Our inspired ideas (along with a stunning ring…) are here to help those considering how to propose on Christmas.

1. A Christmas Tree Surprise

Decorating the Christmas tree is a cherished tradition. Incorporate this heartwarming ritual into your proposal is a truly magical way to start the season. Sneakily hang your engagement ring on a branch and wait for your partner to discover it. When the moment arrives, you ask that all important question… Ideally once it’s dark so you’re amidst twinkling lights as well as the rich-greenness of the pine-tree.

2. A Cozy Fireside Proposal

There’s nothing cosier than snuggling a loved one by the fire. Plan a romantic evening by the fireplace, complete with cheese and wine and a warm blanket. As you both enjoy the ambiance, unveil your proposal in a timeless and radiant fashion. ‘Fire’ isn’t a key term to describe how a diamond flashes light (one of the biggest contributors of a diamond’s beauty) for nothing!

3. A Snowy Wonderland Proposal

You can’t beat a snowy scene as a proposal backdrop. But we know too well that we can’t guarantee this in the UK! If you can’t wait until snow falls, plan a trip to a winter wonderland. We’re thinking: Norway, Finland; Lapland and the Northern Lights; cosy cabins, mountains and picturesque parks. Take your pick and when the moment strikes, get down on one knee and present your ring, sparkling in the snow.

How to propose on Christmas Day

To make Christmas Day hold huge sentimental value that you’ll remember year after year, you could consider ways to propose on Christmas Day.

2. Candlelight Carols

If you’re somewhere where family or friends can help a local choir or carolers to serenade you and your partner on Christmas Day evening, or even Christmas Eve, you can create a truly special and memorable moment. As everyone’s hearts fill with joy, take the opportunity to propose with loved ones around you. A proposal idea filled with shared memories, surprise and wonder.
