At this time of year, it’s all about warm log fires, wintery drinks and family celebrations. It’s also the time of year when a third of engagements happen. Between Christmas and New Year, family commitments, carol concerts and mince pie eating, you can sometimes get overwhelmed on the timing and when to ask your significant other the big question.

Luckily, there are many thoughtful ways to pop the question over the festive season, ranging from romantic to crafty and creative.

Here are some of our favorite ideas:

Get inventive with an advent calendar

No matter how old you are, advents calendars help build up to the excitement in the run-up to Christmas without a doubt. You can create your own advent calendar by selecting 25 gifts or make an opening on the final door of an exciting advent calendar, and placing the ring in there. A moment your other half will treasure forever.

A surprise Christmas / New Year trip to London

With Christmas in the air – if you want to pop the question, where better to do it in one of the most romantic cities in the world. From Big Ben to the London Eye, to Hyde Park to the enchanted galleries and museums, you will find the perfect spot to ask the big question. Click here for London aparthotels.

Putting up the Christmas tree

There’s nothing more Christmassy or romantic than spending the evening decorating your tree with the one you love. As you stand back to admire your hard work, get down on one knee and propose.

Or for an added surprise, hide the ring inside a Christmas bauble and just as you are about to finish decorating, hand your partner the bauble to place on the tree as the final decoration. They will be lost for words when they see an engagement ring hidden inside.

First thing Christmas morning

Keep it simple. You’ve just woken up and are still wearing festive pyjamas. Your other half is about to start opening presents when you present them with a delicious breakfast in bed, complete with something that’s much more sparkly than scrambled eggs. Simple, private and romantic, perfect start to the morning.

Craft your own Christmas cracker

If you know your wife-to-be would love a public proposal, then why not do it at the dinner table in front of family? You can get crafty making a set of paper crackers for the table (make sure you don’t mix up the crackers. Add a ‘will you marry me?’ note instead of a joke and watch the tears of happiness flow.

In a box inside a box, inside a box

If you are spending Christmas day together, make it fun for your soon-to-be fiancée by wrapping up the ring box and placing it within a box, within a box, within a box. This is the only time bigger is better. She might get slightly frustrated, but the end will be a picture perfect moment.

Make this Christmas a memorable one, and remember it doesn’t have to be an over the top engagement to be special (unless that is what you both want).
