The holidays around Christmas and New Years are full of love, family, positive and warm emotions. A perfect time and very popular time for engagements.

Just remember that the proposal is really about the two of you and the life you hope to have together. Tailor the proposal to your girlfriend’s personality. For example, if your girlfriend is a private person, a family gathering proposal is not ideal. Think about the love the two of you share and what would make her happiest, and you will make the marriage proposal a special moment you both remember forever.

It is never easy to ask the questions of all questions and it is a big step in your relationship and life! We want to help and selected some of our favorite engagement tips during the coming holidays:

Christmas Proposal Poem
Consider proposing with a poem to express your love in beautiful language. Write an original marriage proposal poem or find a pre-written one from many free online sources and adapt it to your needs. You can tie the proposal poem into the Christmas theme, highlighting the special significance of getting engaged during the holiday.

Ask the question with romantic Christmas lights
Spell out “Will you marry me?” on your roof, side of your house, or on your lawn using Christmas lights. They’ll be surprised to see your decorations this year!

Extra Large Christmas Gift Box
Wrap the ring in an extra large box and place under the tree to open on Christmas. This adds an element of surprise since a ring would normally be in a small box. You can fill the box with other romantic trinkets or with packing peanuts, newspaper, or other packing materials to avoid box shaking and to add weight

On the Stroke of Midnight
One of the most romantic ways to get engaged on New Year’s Eve is also one of the most simple. As the bells ring out at midnight to welcome in the New Year, take the opportunity to propose to your loved one. The key to the success of this form of proposal is the venue. A very busy or boisterous setting with lots of people and fireworks might not be the best place for a quiet and romantic proposal.

New Year’s Eve Gift
If you already have the ring then you could surprise your partner by giving her a special New Year’s gift. This is perfect for occasions where there are just the two of you. This form of romantic proposal would work particularly well over a quiet meal. If you are looking for a way to make the proposal extra special create a special meal at home. Include all your partner’s favorite dishes and offer the ring and proposal for dessert.

New Year’s Resolutions
Every year, people the world over write New Year’s resolutions saying what they plan to do in the coming year. Incorporating a marriage proposal into a list of New Year’s resolutions can be a fun way to pop the question and and it can be done in a variety of ways. Tell your loved one that you think it would be nice to draw up a joint list of New Year’s resolutions and add ‘get married’ as the last resolution. If your partner has already written a list of New Year’s resolutions, then ask to see her list and tell her that she has forgotten one and add ‘get married’ or ‘get engaged’.
