Many people may think that Valentine’s Day is the most popular time of the year to pop the question, but that’s not the case. It’s actually the holiday season, which spans from November to January, which is considered the engagement season in the U.S. Since the holidays are rapidly approaching, now is the time to start planning your proposal if you plan on popping the question this year. Here are some unique ways to propose during the holidays:
Use Personalized Ornaments
Buy solid colored ornaments and write one reason why you love your significant other on each of them. Place a note on the tree topper asking your significant other to marry you. Then, invite your significant other to decorate the Christmas tree with you and watch as she unwraps each of the ornaments and reads your sweet messages. Her heart will melt once she gets to the top of the tree and reaches for the tree topper. This is a moment that neither one of you will ever forget!
Invite Carolers to Sing
Ask a group of local carolers to arrive at your doorstep at a specific time. Provide them with signs that read “Happy Holidays” so they can hold them up while they serenade you and your significant other with music. Write “Will you marry me?” on the back of the cards and ask the carolers to flip them over at the end of their performance. This proposal will take your significant other by surprise and make her holiday season truly memorable.
Disguise the Ring As A Christmas Gift
Propose on Christmas morning by hiding the engagement ring under the tree with the rest of your significant other’s gifts. But, it’s important to avoid wrapping the engagement ring box in paper, since the size of the gift makes it obvious that it’s a jewelry box. Throw your significant other off by placing the engagement ring box inside a much larger box before wrapping it. Your significant other will spend the weeks before Christmas wondering what’s inside the large box, only to find out the truth on Christmas morning.
Write the Question in the Snow
Take advantage of the winter weather by writing out “Will you marry me?” in the snow. You can carve out the letters in the snow with a shovel or spell out the words using holiday lights or the petals of a poinsettia. Then, ask your significant other to come outside so she can find you waiting for her while on a bended knee. Since this setting is so romantic, you may want to ask a loved one to hide nearby so they can snap photos of this memorable moment.
Invite Friends and Family
Family and friends often spend the night before Thanksgiving together, so this is a perfect opportunity to propose to your significant other. Wait until her closest loved ones have arrived, then ask everyone in the room for their attention. This is a simple proposal, but it will be incredibly special to her since she will be surrounded by all of the people she cares about the most.
The holiday season is right around the corner, so there’s no time to waste. Start shopping for the perfect engagement ring so you are ready to use one of these proposal ideas to pop the question. With a proposal this romantic, there’s no way your significant other will say no!
