Tis the Season to Get Engaged! Get Inspired to Pop the Question with These 4 Romantic Ideas

November 5th, 2021

The day you propose to your partner is one that you’ll remember for many years to come! You want this moment to be something that they won’t expect and also won’t forget. Discover how to craft a romantic, holiday proposal with this expert guide.

Something Special Under the Tree

If you’re going to be proposing during the holidays, you may as well embrace the festiveness of the season. There are plenty of ways to utilize your Christmas tree for your proposal!

For a simple surprise, place the engagement ring box under the tree with a bow, or consider adding an extra ornament to the tree. Put the engagement ring inside a clear ornament and paint the words, “marry me,” across it, and hang it on a branch.

Advent Calendar Surprise

An idea that we love is the use of an advent calendar. Fill each date with some of your partner's favorite sweets, pampering products, or maybe notes detailing your favorite memories together. Then, hide the ring in the last slot!

Tip: In case your partner is the nosey type, wait to put the ring in the calendar until the night before Christmas!

Cheerful Carolers

This one may take some time to organize, but it’ll be so worth it! You can either get a group of your partner’s friends and family or choose people they won’t recognize to show up at your door. Pick their favorite Christmas song or write a clever carol of your own to ask them to marry you. The carolers can then direct your partner’s attention towards you when you’re down on one knee ready to pop the question!

Under the Mistletoe

Mistletoe is a holiday season staple so your partner won’t suspect a thing when you pull them underneath it for a kiss. But when they lean in, you drop down to one knee. Or you could tie the ring to the mistletoe and direct them to look up! They’ll be so surprised.

Picking The Ring

The engagement ring is one of the most important elements of your proposal. When picking the ring, you want to draw influence from your partner’s personality and style. Here are some engagement ring collections we’re loving this holiday season.
