Christmas is often described as the most wonderful and magical time of the year. With the cooling night breeze of December and the twinkling Christmas lights radiating from the festive decorations, magic and romance are abundant in the air. You could not ask for a more romantic atmosphere to propose to your significant other.
However, planning a memorable Christmas proposal can be a challenge. The build-up, anticipation, and reveal – everything has to be perfect. Trying to attain that dream proposal to ensure you have a sweet story to share will undoubtedly contribute stress to an already nerve-wracking situation. But fret not! Let us share four brilliant Christmas proposal ideas you can consider incorporating into your plan to ensure everything goes off without a hitch.
Schedule a surprise delivery
There are memorable gifts, and then there are gifts that absolutely stand out and leave an indelible impression on the recipient – and an engagement ring definitely tops that list. If your loved one’s love language is gift-giving, you might want to consider scheduling a gift delivery to surprise her this Christmas morning.
You might want to time your gift delivery to coincide with your timely arrival on her doorstep. Imagine her surprise and joy when she unwraps her gift, only to be further stunned by your “sudden” appearance at her doorstep with a bouquet of flowers ready to pop the question.
Plan a romantic night out on Christmas Eve
There are few things more exciting than a night out before Christmas, with the festive decorations, the cool night breeze, and the general Christmas buzz contributing to a fantastic atmosphere, making it the ideal time to pop the question.
You should plan your itinerary out in advance. A nice dinner at a fancy restaurant is a plus, and you can even consider catching a Christmas-theme movie to set the mood. To make the night extra special, you can even suggest that both of you dress up for the occasion.
The most important factor you need to consider is the place where you will be proposing. You can consider booking a swanky hotel in advance and informing the employees of your plan, so they can assist in decorating the hotel room.

Alternatively, we suggest visiting the colourful light-up displays along Marina Bay Promenade. The “kaleidoscope of colours on a treetop canopy” makes for the perfect backdrop for you to propose.
Hang the engagement ring on the Christmas tree
A classic Christmas proposal that never gets old. If you and your loved one are planning to decorate a Christmas tree for the holidays, then this is the perfect proposal idea for you – she’ll never suspect a thing.
You will require some proposal baubles to execute this plan flawlessly. These baubles also make for a memorable keepsake to commemorate the occasion. Crucially, you should not forget about the most important decoration of all – the engagement ring.
Thinking of proposing with a 1 carat diamond ring without breaking the bank? It is possible with lab grown diamonds that cost 40% less than mined diamonds with the exact specifications.
Browse our Star Carat Diamond collection, which offers an extensive selection of cuts and colours at affordable prices, to find the ideal ring to fulfil her heart’s desires. From the classic Solitaire design to Halo and Pave, you will definitely be spoilt for choice.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something that is a cut above the rest, our iconic 101-facet cut AllStar Diamond collection may be what you are looking for! Meticulously crafted to perform brilliantly under any light condition, they offer a stunning symphony of remarkable colour effects akin to a fireworks display.
After the decoration is complete and the ring is placed prominently on the tree, you can slyly ask your loved one to inspect the ornaments so she can be greeted by the most sparkly decoration of all – the engagement ring. And regardless of the ring choice you’ve made, she is bound to be moved by your sweet gesture.
You’ve probably seen this scenario play out a couple of times in romance movies – the actress finishes her drink only to be greeted by a message at the bottom of the cup asking her to marry her significant other. While this idea has become somewhat of a cliché, it does not make it any less romantic.
Furthermore, hot drinks are a significant part of the festive nesting and a welcome respite from the cooling night breeze of December. You can even incorporate your other half’s favourite beverage – whether it is hot chocolate, chai latte, or mulled wine – into the Christmas proposal itself.
From writing a note on their favourite Starbucks cup to asking the question in chocolate dusting using a customised latte art stencil, there is plenty of novel and romantic ways for you to pop the question this Christmas. No matter the choice you go with, we are confident your other half will swoon with delight at the proposal.
Christmas is an ideal time to get engaged. However, as you are planning on how to pop the question, the most vital thing to remember is that you and your other half are the stars of the proposal.
Therefore, it is crucial to keep your loved one’s preferences in mind when planning your proposal. By considering the love the two of you share and what would make her the happiest, you can make the proposal a memorable moment that the both of you won’t soon forget.
