Jingle bells

Personalise a special bauble for a romantic surprise as you decorate the tree together. Choose an understated design and customise it with the words ‘Marry me?’. Hand it to your partner to hang on the tree, and as they turn away, drop to one knee.

Over mulled wine

The spicy, fruity scent of hot mulled wine on a cold December evening brings an instant festive feel.

For an intimate Christmas proposal, light the fire and pop the question over a homemade dinner, complete with mulled wine and all the trimmings.

At a Christmas market

Christmas markets bring a cheery atmosphere and an abundance of delicious treats – so where better for proposing at Christmas?

Plan a date with your significant other for a surprise proposal in a beautifully festive location. Toast to the moment with seasonal drinks as Christmas market revellers cheer you on.

Under the tree

Wondering how to propose at Christmas but nervous about getting the words out? Let your spouse-to-be unwrap their proposal instead!

With the best present wrapping you’ve ever done (enlist the help of a gift-wrapping service if needed!), place the engagement ring beneath the tree for a surprise proposal on Christmas morning. Then celebrate your engagement with a glass of Buck’s Fizz.

Light it up

Decorate your home with Christmas lights – only this year, with a difference! Instead of traditional twinkling lights, spell out your proposal with Christmas light decorations. Pop the champagne on ice and be ready to get down on one knee when your partner arrives home.

With a wish

We start writing wish lists to Santa Claus as children, but as adults we are often asked to write wish lists to help our nearest and dearest choose the perfect presents.

If you’re putting pen to paper with some Christmas ideas for your other half, why not place your biggest wish at the top of the list?

Have the ring to hand – or if you prefer to choose one together, hit the shops for some unforgettable Christmas shopping. This is a Christmas proposal they’ll never expect!
