If you’re thinking of proposing to your significant other this holiday season, you’re about to embark on an exciting journey. Proposing to your significant other should be a special and memorable event, so it’s important to plan ahead and make sure everything goes smoothly. Here are our top 5 tips to help you plan your perfect holiday proposal, they also work at any time of year 👍🏻
1) Consider Your Partner's Interests and Preferences
The key to planning a successful proposal is to consider your partner’s interests and preferences. Find out what your partner loves and make it the centre of the proposal. Think about the holiday season and what would make it special for them. Is there a certain place or activity they always wanted to do? Incorporating special elements that remind them of your relationship is also a great way to make the proposal extra meaningful.
You can also make the proposal even more special by adding a personal touch. Consider writing a heartfelt letter or poem that expresses your love and commitment. You can also create a scrapbook or photo album that highlights your relationship and all the special moments you have shared together. Consider if they want a public or private proposal as well. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it is something that your partner will appreciate and remember for years to come.
2) Consider the Timing of the Proposal
Timing is everything when it comes to proposals. It’s important to think carefully about when to propose. Is there a certain moment during the holiday season that would be extra special? Consider the timing of the proposal in relation to other events and activities during the season, such as holiday parties, family gatherings, and vacations. Make sure that the proposal doesn’t coincide with any other important events that may take away from the moment.
It's also important to consider the time of day when proposing. If you're proposing during the day, make sure that you have enough time to enjoy the moment and celebrate afterwards. If you're proposing at night, make sure that you have a plan for the evening and that you have a romantic setting. Whatever you decide, make sure that the timing of the proposal is perfect for you and your partner.
3) Choose a Meaningful Location
Choosing a meaningful location for your proposal is key. Think about locations that are significant to your relationship: perhaps the place where you first met, an activity or event you shared, or a special spot that holds meaning for you both. If you can’t think of a specific place, consider proposing somewhere with a beautiful view or in a special setting that reflects the season. Whatever location you choose, make sure it has special significance and will make the proposal extra special.
If you’re feeling extra creative, you could even plan a scavenger hunt leading up to the proposal. This could involve clues that lead to the final destination, or a series of activities that culminate in the proposal. This is a great way to make the proposal even more memorable and unique
4) Make Sure You Have the Right Ring
Getting the right ring is an important part of any proposal. The type of ring you choose should reflect your partner’s style and preferences. Consider the size, shape, and colour of the ring as well as any metals or stones. Do your research and find out what would be most meaningful for them. Make sure that you purchase the right size ring so that it fits properly when you propose.
When selecting a ring, it is important to think about the quality of the materials used. Look for rings made with high-quality metals and stones that will last for years to come. You should also consider the cost of the ring and make sure that it fits within your budget. Finally, make sure to purchase the ring from a reputable jeweller to ensure that you are getting a quality product.
The right ring might already be in your (or their) family. Consider any family heirlooms you have and remember you can get them altered if needed.
The ring size is tricky to get right, the easy route is to take one of their existing rings with you to the jeweller to get it right, or give it your best guess and get a guarantee of a re-size included in your purchase.
Here's some tips specifically for buying the perfect engagement ring.

You could go out for a special dinner or plan an activity that you both enjoy. However you decide to celebrate, make sure to enjoy this momentous occasion together.
