Call us hopeless romantics, but Christmas really is the most wonderful time of year and the perfect time to propose. With long, dark and cosy nights in, twinkling Christmas lights and heart warming mulled wine on tap, there’s magic in the air and romance in abundance.
Here are all the reasons to make the most of this magical season and make it extra special with a Christmas proposal. Because we all know 2020 could do with some happy news…
5 Reasons to Propose at Christmas
Proposing to the love of your life is possibly the single most nail-biting experience one could ever face. The stress of getting that one special moment right can be the biggest decision you will ever have to make.
If you’re thinking of asking for your partner’s hand in marriage, the festive period could be the best time to pop the question. Here are the top five reasons to propose at Christmas.
It’s the Perfect Christmas Gift
Without sounding like the voice over for a cheesy romcom, there really is no greater gift than love. So what better way to express your adoration with the perfect gift that symbolises love, commitment and desire than a Christmas proposal.
Oh, and a big ol’ diamond definitely wouldn’t disappoint on Christmas morning either. Why not present it on Christmas morning, during a walk or over breakfast in bed.
All the Family are Together at Christmas
If you’re a confident person and want to show everyone just how much your partner means to you, why not propose in front of your friends and family around the dinner table? Christmas is the perfect time for all the family to get together and there’s plenty of opportunity to celebrate with friends, too.
Alternatively, if you want that special moment just to be between the two of you, pop the question in private and then make the announcement later in the day. This was everyone be part of your joy from the start.
Make the Most of the Festive Magic
There’s no denying that the Christmas period holds a certain magic in the air. Why not pop the question while you’re putting the finishing touches to your decorations? That way, your first selfie as an engaged couple will be in front of all those sparkling lights.
The Christmas Sales
Now amongst all the emotive reasons to propose, we have to enclose at least one practical suggestion and that, of course, is money. One of the many great things we love about Christmas is its winter sales.
Whether it’s been a good year for you or not, we all love a sale, so why not take advantage and buy her dream engagement ring at a fraction of the cost.
New Year, Newly Engaged Couple (and a Whole New Chapter)
The end of the year often represents a time of growth for many couples. With a few weeks away until the New Year, resolutions tend to occupy our minds. Why not take that leap of faith and look forward to the next step that love can bring by binding it all together with a lifelong commitment.
