Is there a more romantic time to propose than Christmas? We don’t think so. Like Santa’s workshop, the festive period is stuffed to bursting with wonder and excitement. Snowflakes and frosty mornings. Fairy lights and festive bubbly. Cuddling under blankets and watching romantic films. It’s the ideal time to be with people you love - and to ask that all-important question...

But how do you deliver the perfect proposal on a day with so many other things going on? Here’s our advice on how to plan the perfect Christmas proposal.


Choosing your moment

The festive period is busy with a capital 'b'. You may want a big Christmas Day proposal, but don’t forget that there are other opportunities to be romantic over Christmas. Christmas Eve, for example, has a romance all of its own and is a much quieter time than the big day itself. What about a cozy Christmas Eve proposal while cuddled up in front of the fire? Or a dramatic down-on-one-knee affair in front of the biggest Christmas tree you can find? You could even arrange a singing proposal with some neatly-timed carol singers!


Planning a Christmas Day proposal

If you decide to go for the big day itself and choose the jewellery, planning will be key to a successful Christmas proposal. There’s always a lot going on, on Christmas Day, so make sure you carve out your moment. Plan a specific time to be alone, or to have everyone’s attention - depending on whether you think your partner will want an audience. Get family and friends involved if you need to so they can help coordinate the perfect moment.

For a more intimate proposal, why not plan a romantic winter walk? Perhaps to a place that's special to you both? If that's not possible and you're going to be at home all day, you could always place your ring on or under the tree for your partner to find.

If you want to get really creative, there are lots of ideas out there. You could ask the big question in Christmas lights, set out on the floor. Hide it in a box of chocolates, or even have it engraved on a tree decoration.

Make it personal and you can't go wrong. Just don’t lose the ring!


Choosing the perfect ring

There are many decisions when planning a proposal. It's important that you make your proposal in a way that's personal to you and shows your partner how much thought you've put into it. Those are choices only you can make.
