7 Memorable Christmas Proposal Ideas in 2021

Posted in: Engagement

The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us to appreciate what we have, especially when it can all be taken away. If it has made you realise just how lucky you are to have your significant other in your life, then you may be contemplating a Christmas proposal. 

A Christmas proposal can be the highlight of your entire year while also setting up you and your husband or wife-to-be with some exciting planning opportunities in the year soon to arrive. 

However, as it’s such a momentous occasion, you likely want to do it in the most memorable way possible. Some of these ideas may be exactly what you’re looking for. 

Advent Calendar Surprise

You don’t have to be a child to love waking up each morning and opening a window on an advent calendar. While chocolate advent calendars are the most popular option, we’ve also seen some innovative calendars hit the market with products like cheese, alcohol, and sweet treats. 

Choose the one you think your significant other would like, then replace one of the windows with a stunning diamond engagement ring. Don’t forget to take note of which day you choose! 

Try to line up the perforation lines as closely as possible, and make sure you know when they’re going to open it so that you can be there to watch. 

Custom Christmas Cracker

If you’ve pulled one Christmas cracker, you’ve pulled them all. They usually all contain a small trinket, a joke, and a party hat that always seems a little bit too small. Why not make your own and make it your Christmas proposal idea that no one will be in a hurry to forget? 

Handmade Christmas crackers are easy to make and allow you to get creative. You can store an engagement ring inside and replace the cheesy joke with a note that says, ‘Will you marry me?’. 

However, don’t put this special Christmas cracker on the dinner table with the rest in case someone else volunteers to pull the cracker with you. Set it aside until you have a moment to pull it with your significant other. 

Christmas Tree Decoration

After spending some time choosing the perfect diamond for your significant other’s engagement ring and having it delivered directly to your door, consider putting it on your Christmas tree like a decoration. 

You can put it inside a bauble, tie a ribbon around it and hang it from a branch, or secure it in a small box from the tree. When you’re ready to pop the question, dim the main lights, turn on the Christmas tree lights, and take the decoration from the tree right in front of your partner. 

Long Walk

We’ve kept up many good habits from our time in COVID-19 lockdowns, such as mask use and frequent handwashing. Many people have also continued taking long walks. As walks generally allow for open communication, consider using them as an opportunity to get down on one knee. 

Choose somewhere significant on your walking route to carry out the proposal, and consider doing it on a day when the sun’s shining and you’re both in vibrant, happy moods. 

Under the Mistletoe

Many couples have kissed under the mistletoe, but how many couples can you say have proposed under the mistletoe? This cheesy but fun proposal is one the whole family can get behind if you’re sure the answer will be yes. 

Wait until everyone is in the general vicinity enjoying festivities, then kiss your partner under the mistletoe. You can then get down on one knee and pop the question. 

Gift Inside a Gift

Those closest to you always seem to be the hardest people to buy for, but if you’ve planned a Christmas proposal, you’ve got your gift idea all organised. Once you purchase the ring and have it delivered in its ring box, wrap it up inside a small package. 

The wrapping doesn’t have to stop there. You can then wrap that small box inside a medium box and the medium box inside a large box. 

Around the Christmas Table

There are very few things as important as family, which is why many people decide to have their loved ones around them when they propose to the love of their life. 

If you’re confident that your partner will say yes, choose Christmas dinner at the table with the most important people in your life as the moment to ask for their hand in marriage. It’s a moment your family will talk about for years to come. 

Propose With Complete Confidence This Christmas

The last two years have been rough, and there are few better ways to celebrate making it through stronger than ever than with a Christmas proposal. Propose to the love of your life in a unique, memorable, and exciting way. All that’s left to do now is choose your diamond engagement ring and start planning!
