How to pop the question this Christmas and New Year’s Eve

Tis the season to pop the question!

December is considered to be one the most popular months for engagements according to a statista survey, with a proposal rate of 19% followed by Valentine’s being the most romantic day of the year.

With all this love in the air in the lead up to Christmas and New Year’s Eve, now is the perfect time to propose to that special someone in your life and there are so many ways to do it!

From simple gestures to elaborate displays, we’re here to give you guys and gals some inspirational proposal ideas for making this Christmas and New Year’s Eve one neither of you will ever forget!

Walk in a winter wonderland

Naturally, the winter weather can be your muse of inspiration as the two of you walk in your very own romantic winter paradise.

If you aren’t blessed with snow this season, then why not create your own! Use a fake snow machine for gentle snowflakes to fall all around you, or white fairy lights suspended from a canopy.

Plan activities to do together such as ice skating, skiing, a winter hike, or on a magical sleigh ride.

At the end of the day, bend down on one knee and ask for their hand under the mistletoe or Christmas tree – sealed with a kiss.

One way to be unique is asking friends and family to be carol singers to serenade their favourite song to them as a surprise.

Party proposal

End the year with a bang (and were not just talking about the fireworks) by planning a party proposal with friends, family, or just the two of you.

A glitzy and glamourous night out on the town, or eating at a high end restaurant will go down a treat, complete with a bit of bubbly champagne to celebrate.

If it’s New Year’s Eve, wait until the beginning or end of the countdown to propose – entering the year on a romantic high!

Home is where the heart is

Nothing beats the cosy comforts of home, and it is the place where you and your partner have laughed, cooked, had fun, maybe cried but most importantly built a life together.

Make it the ultimate night in with a couple of hot chocolates and roasted marshmallows by the fire, playing their favourite songs, a candle-lit room, and watching movies – creating more of an intimate, personalised atmosphere.

For an added bonus, why not write ‘will you marry me?’ on a bauble, or even give a scrapbook of memories as a special gift for Christmas with the last page asking that all important question.

A romantic getaway

Most young people aged between 18 – 24 are likely to propose in some of the most romantic cities in the world which includes Florence, Paris, and New York.

Booking a trip to your first or favourite destination together can lead to some great opportunities for a proposal. Whether that’s a sunset walk on the beach, a cruising boat ride, a wine and cheese tasting session, or a visit to some historical sites.
