5 Christmas Proposal Ideas to Consider

5 Ideas To Consider For Your Christmas Proposal

Christmas is one of the most popular times of the year to consider getting engaged to your other half, outside of Valentine’s Day. With there being so many ideas to consider, planning one that’s both unique and personal can be difficult.

Once you’ve spent a lot of time planning your proposal, it can be easy to forget buying a diamond engagement ring for your partner. It’s important that you don’t miss out on the ring as it could be a major factor in whether your partner says yes to getting engaged.

Struggling to come up with a Christmas proposal idea? We’ve put together five ideas to help you create your dream festive proposal.




In terms of festive proposal ideas to pose the big question, creating an advent calendar is right up there. You could create a homemade advent calendar that’s full of your partner’s favourite things or with messages that highlight your love for your partner.

If you are looking to propose on Christmas Eve, you could hide the engagement ring in the last bag to add an element of surprise on the day. It’s not worth putting the ring in the bag until the proposal day as your partner could have a little peek inside the bags, thus spoiling the surprise you had carefully planned out.

When it comes to choosing a beautiful engagement ring on a budget for your proposal, look no further than the Blue Sapphire Cushion & Pear Diamond Trilogy Ring. The ring features a sparkly blue sapphire centre stone with two pear cut diamonds, which gives it a premium look, despite it being one of our cheaper sapphire engagement rings in our collection.



Giving your partner a Christmas card is a simple, but effective way to pop the question. If you find yourself unable to spend a lot of money on your proposal, writing a Christmas card is a great way of proposing. 

You can also personalise the Christmas card with a proposal message, such as ‘Sarah, will you marry me?’. Once she’s finished reading the card, drop down to one knee and present them with an engagement ring. 



Popping the question in a space full of Christmas lights is one of the most beautiful and romantic ways to propose to your partner. You and your partner should wrap up warm and spend some time walking around the city centre, before stumbling across a street that has plenty of Christmas lights around, such as Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

The weather could also play a key factor in proposing to your partner, particularly in December as there could be a possibility of snowy conditions. If it does snow, it could make your Christmas proposal more memorable and magical.

In terms of the perfect engagement ring to complement your Christmas lights proposal, it’s worth choosing the Infinity Twist Round Diamond Engagement Ring. When it comes to sparkly rings, this engagement ring has plenty of them, due to it being surrounded by a round brilliant cut diamond centre stone with smaller round cut diamonds alongside the ring.



If your Christmas tree at home does not feel grand enough to pop the question, find the most impressive tree in your city to propose to your partner. Hotels and landmarks across various cities across the UK will go all out for the festive season, which gives you plenty of options to propose in front of a Christmas tree.

Alternatively, if you have a Christmas tree at home, you can propose in front of it. To make it the ultimate Christmas Day proposal to your partner, hide the ring box in the tree’s branches. When your partner has thought that they’ve opened through all their Christmas presents, tell your partner that there’s something extra hidden in the tree.



Why not plan the perfect Christmas Day engagement proposal by putting together your own treasure hunt? You could play your Christmas treasure hunt either at home or in your local area and get everyone involved in the game. It’s worth getting creative when putting together the clues, making sure they all lead to the main treasure, the ring itself.

When you are planning the treasure hunt, make sure that the ring itself is hidden in an area that’s safe around your home. This is particularly important if you are doing the treasure hunt in an outdoor location, so it’s worth having someone always guard the ring to avoid it from being stolen.


We hope these five ideas have made it easier for you to plan the perfect Christmas engagement proposal this festive season. Once you’ve decided on a Christmas engagement proposal idea that’s right for your partner, you need to make sure you have the perfect engagement ring they’ll love.
