One of the most important things a male will do besides choosing his mate is the actual proposing. As a man, you will want to make the occasion as romantic as possible. When better to get engaged than on a holiday? An engagement ring would make an excellent Christmas present for anyone’s girlfriend.
If you are going to get engaged on Christmas, here are a few ideas you may want to consider for the special occasion. Hopefully, you have discussed with your soon to be fiancée how she would like to get engaged if that day ever came. Her input makes your job easier. Hopefully, she has hinted around at her idea of how she would like to be proposed to. Some females dream of this all important, romantic day.
If you are going to propose, you need to decide whether it will be you and her for a quiet and romantic proposal, or if you want an audience for your proposal. If your girlfriend lives with her parents and they like traditions, you may want to propose to her there. If your girlfriend is living on her own, then you should probably propose to her alone and/or romantically and then, take her to her family to let them know.
Hopefully, your girlfriend has given you some indication of how she would like you to propose. If she has not told you, maybe ask her when you are alone if she will marry you. If she says yes, tell her you would like to ask her in front of her family. This will make it twice as romantic and special for your girlfriend.
Ways to propose:
Favorite restaurant/table – All females like romance. A nice way to propose is at a restaurant or at any meal table. If you make your girlfriend her favorite meal she will surely be pleased. To see her engagement ring or hear of your proposal will delight her beyond words. You can hide her ring at the table. It is important to know how visually noticeable she is if you plan on putting her ring in the food. You may even want to get on one knee to propose to her.
Picnic – If you plan a favorite picnic for the two of you, you can hide the ring in the picnic basket to let her find as you unpack the basket or you can give her the ring over dessert.
Under the Christmas tree – If you are going to get engaged on Christmas day, your present to your girlfriend may be a big box packed full of paper and in the top center a little ring box. You could propose to her after she “finds” your present to her.
Horse carriage ride – Horse carriage rides are extremely romantic. You can take your girlfriend to look at Christmas lights by carriage and propose on the ride. Your soon to be fiancée will be overjoyed.
Ring under pillow – If you “stay over” with your beloved, you may want to hide her ring under her pillow, or place it on her pillow with a single rose. She will find it with joy.
Anywhere – No matter where you are, your girlfriend will be overjoyed to receive a ring on Christmas or any time. It will be memorable on Christmas as a wonderful present.
Your girlfriend may have her own ideas about how she would want to be proposed to. It is wise that once you have chosen your future wife that you ask her the most romantic way to be proposed to. This will eliminate your fear of the unknown and help you plan. If you listen carefully, maybe she will tell you how to propose to her.
