5 Charming Christmas Proposal Ideas 

Christmas is a time of giving. A time of joy. A time to celebrate with your family and friends, and tell those closest to you just how much they mean to you. 

With twinkling lights and the smell of freshly cut pine trees in the air, it really is a magical time of year. The Christmas atmosphere is entrancing...So why not take advantage of it? Why not make this Christmas one that you will remember forever? 

Proposing to your special someone during the festive season puts the cherry on top of your pudding. The cinnamon on your eggnog. The star atop your tree. It's a proposal that signifies the beginning of your own Christmas traditions, the union of your two families, and will give the relatives something to talk endlessly about at the dinner table.

How to Find the Perfect Engagement Ring

At Gerard Mccabe, we believe that Christmas proposals make for truly spectacular memories. We have put together 5 of the most charming and romantic Christmas proposal ideas that are sure to make this year unforgettable.


Christmas Morning Tree Proposal

Christmas trees are beacons of sparkles and beautiful ornaments. For an excellent surprise proposal, hang the ring on a piece of ribbon to decorate the tree. Just remember where you put it - searching franticly amongst the sea of lights and trinkets might give you away.

Christmas Shopping Surprise Proposal

Nothing beats a Christmas shopping spree - especially if it results in a gorgeous ring! While you're out with your loved one, pop instor to see our Adelaide diamond engagement ring specialists "just for a little look around". While they're checking out the shiny objects with the intensity of a magpie, you can be busily getting into position. When they turn around, there you are down on one knee, asking them the big question.

By proposing in store, your loved one has the ability to choose their own ring, or you can reserve one before hand. Like this idea? Give our Adelaide engagement ring specialists a call today, we'd love to help you to organise your big moment!

Christmas Cake Proposal

The scene is set. The cake is made. Your none-the-wiser Fiancé to be is sitting at the table, eagerly awaiting her slice of delicious pudding. Place the ring in their slice, and simply sit back and watch from across the table as they discover it.

Top tip - place it so it is easy to see. The last thing you want is your partner chowing down on your dazzling engagement ring.

Christmas Ball Proposal

Decorating your Christmas tree is a lot of fun, especially if you've got a sneaky and special decoration up your sleeve. Take a ‘will you marry me’ Christmas bauble and place the diamond engagement ring on the top, hand it to your partner while decorating the tree together. This way, you can take your first photo together as an engaged couple in front of your gorgeous Christmas tree!

Christmas Lights Proposal

For those looking for a big "wow" factor proposal, who have a decent amount of time on their hands, why not spell out ‘will you marry me’ in Christmas lights outside your home? It's a beautifully festive proposal. Just be sure to allocate enough time to detangle the inevitable mess of lights, even though you're SURE you properly put them away last year.
