Ideas Abound for Christmas Engagements
It is only natural that every Christmas people tend to get closer to the ones they love. They remember what they are thankful for and think about what they want to hold on to for the future. As a result, Christmas engagements are very common. In fact, most engagements actually happen around the holidays. Some guys are clueless when it comes to proposing on Christmas, or thinking of Christmas engagement ideas. However, there is no shortage of ideas to spark the imagination for a perfect holiday engagement.
Christmas Tree Delights
Before getting started on decorating your tree or hanging ornaments, there are a couple of variations that you may want to consider. A wonderful way to propose at Christmas is to hang the ring on the tree – like an ornament. Have the ring be the ONLY ornament on the tree when she walks in…or, hang the ring box with ribbon on the tree and point out the “interesting” new ornament. That is sure to be a surprise. We all have seen those ornaments in the mall and other shops where you can personalize your own Christmas ornament. How about posing the question “Will You Marry Me” on a Christmas ornament? Have it engraved or painted on, then leave it on the tree and lead her to it. You won’t even have to talk. The ornament will say it all.
Don’t Forget the Mistletoe or Stocking Stuffer
Why not take that Christmas tradition of kissing under the mistletoe a step farther? Give your lady a quick smooch, and then pop the question right there under the mistletoe. That is not only a romantic way to share the moment but, also, personal and intimate. If mistletoe is not for you, then how about heading to the Christmas stockings? Hide the ring in a box at the bottom of her Christmas stocking. When she goes through all the candy and little things along the way, the best present yet will be waiting at the bottom, her ring.
A Romantic Evening Out or Going Abroad
It is not uncommon to travel for the Christmas holiday. Try taking a trip to an exotic location, somewhere you both love. Whether it be the heart of Europe or the coast of Costa Rica, a creative way to propose at Christmas is to ask her when you are somewhere completely new, an adventure you are both on together. The best part will be coming back home to share the happy news. You don’t have to travel nearly as far if you pop the question during a romantic evening out. Try planning a romantic date night out. A carriage ride downtown, looking at the Christmas lights in the snow, dinner at a fancy restaurant under candlelight, or a home cooked meal at home with Christmas music playing in the background offer the perfect Christmas engagement setting.
Family Gatherings, Photo Albums Good to Try
Popping the question at family gatherings carries with it a prerequisite: you must be comfortable and on good terms with both families. If you both are super close to your families, then this is a good idea, especially when the family is together to celebrate the holiday. Then everyone can celebrate together when she says, “yes.” Another creative way to propose and one that is a perfect gift in itself is a customized photo album with photos of the two of you. Websites like Shutterfly can create amazing Christmas photo albums that you can give to her as a gift. Make the last picture in the album a photo of the ring. Then ask away.
