Why Propose At Christmas Time?
Christmas is one of the most magical times of the year, and it gives each and every one of us who celebrates it that festive, excited feeling. You’re surrounded by twinkly lights and carol singers – this year from a distance, delicious food, and hilarious and not so hilarious Christmas cracker jokes. It’s a time to spend quality time with family who might only get the opportunity to visit once or twice a year. It’s a festive season, and it’s something we all look forward to.
So, when it comes to big gatherings and snowy nights, twinkly lights, and a little romance, Christmas is a very popular time to propose to the love of your life.

Some people prefer to stay away from the holidays when declaring their love, preferring instead to have a day that they choose away from commercialised holidays. However, there is nothing wrong with harnessing the magic of Christmas to make a proposal a magical one. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best reasons you should propose this Christmas.

Five Reasons To Propose At Christmas Time
1 – Everyone Is There
If you know that your loved one wants a public proposal, Christmas is the perfect time to do it. Even if they don’t want a public one, you have everyone you could want to tell right there will be with you when you do announce. You can go ring shopping on the lead up to the big day, and you can learn all about the history of Cartier so that you can explain where the ring came from, too. And because everyone is there with you for the big moment – it becomes a huge celebration of love on top of the Christmas glitz.
2 – It’s The Perfect Gift
Finding a sparkling ring in a stocking under the tree is that added sparkle Christmas needs. It’s a wonderful surprise and it’s a lovely way to end the year, too!

3 – You Can Get Creative
Christmas is a huge celebration and you get the chance to be really creative with your proposal idea. You could do anything from putting the ring in a glass of breakfast champagne, to having a bauble made specifically to hold an engagement ring with feathers inside to make it magical. The choice of what you do is totally up to how creative you want to be!

4 – You’ll Never Forget It
Neither of you will ever see Christmas as anything less than special. You’ll remember the year you got engaged with love and joy and that never goes away. You could even choose to go away for Christmas and do your proposal elsewhere.

5 – Popping The Champagne
Christmas 2020 is going to be different than other years but it can still be a wonderful time for fun and love with our loved ones, and especially so, after the year we’ve had. You can pop the question knowing that you are going to start your 2021 with more love and laughter than you thought possible. You’ll have a wedding to plan (pandemic pending!) and you’ll be so happy together that COVID-19 will feel like it’s far away!
