It’s no surprise that the holiday season is the most popular time for proposals. The merriment, decorations, sights and sounds all provide a picture-perfect background. If you’re ready to pop the big question but want to think of out the (gift)box, then take a peek of these holiday proposal ideas.


Under the Mistletoe
Nothing says holiday romance more than meeting your special someone under the mistletoe. What is sometimes a spontaneous moment, can be arranged by sending a romantic note (avoid the informal text or email exchange) with a location and time to meet. Hang fresh mistletoe at the place where your first met or have an arrangement hung above the table at a nice restaurant. Pop the question before you give a peck.

Light It Up
One of the best things about the holidays are the decorations and lights. Both provide the ambiance and setting for the proposal. Take a tour through a neighborhood with the best lights or arrange a carriage ride through a lit up downtown. Visit a local light display where you can walk or drive through and ask those four important words at the end.

Wrap it Up
Everyone loves to give and receive presents during the holidays and a box holding a special ring is the ultimate gift. The classic gift-giving proposal surprise is the box within a box still holds true. Hang little boxes from the tree and have your loved one open each one until the ring is revealed. A holiday-themed scavenger hunt is a fun and playful way to unwrap the big surprise.

Stocking Stuffer
Fill your sweetie’s stocking full of treats, leaving the tiny ring box tucked in the bottom. Confections such as sugary or chocolate rings can help give a clue that you have a sweet surprise in store.

Christmas Tree Farm
A visit to your local Christmas tree farm will create a unique and memorable proposal. Snuggle up with hot cocoa in hand and take a tour of the farm. Once you have found that perfect tree, turn to your loved one and ask for their hand in marriage. Have friends or family members in tow to take pictures of the big moment. The backdrop of the trees will make the perfect engagement announcement photos.

New Year’s Proposal
New Year, new relationship status! Celebrate your love with a New Year’s proposal. Take to the streets, a restaurant or holiday party and when the clock strikes midnight, get down on one knee.

Let the holiday season be the backdrop of that perfect proposal. You’ll be guaranteed a ‘yes’ with any of these seasonal inspired ideas.
