1. You’re surrounded by loved ones  

The Holidays are all about celebrating with those you love most. While the festive season might look a little different in 2020, chances are you’ll be connecting with family and friends in whichever way you can. Being surrounded by so much love, either in person or virtually, is often a key inspiration for making the ultimate romantic gesture.  

Whether you prefer to pop the question in private or surrounded by loved ones, you’ll be able to share the wonderful news straight away - and bring some extra festive season joy to the people closest to you. 

2. A ring is the perfect gift to find under the tree!  

What could be more exciting than finding the unmistakable shape of a ring box beneath the tree (or in a stocking)? An engagement ring would be a wonderful, joyful surprise and the perfect way to begin your Christmas morning! Of course if you can’t wait, it’s also magical as a special early gift on Christmas Eve.

3. There are plenty of creative proposal ideas 

Christmas comes with decorations and celebrations, so there are plenty of ideas to take advantage of if you would like to get a little creative. Some popular proposal ideas include a ‘Marry Me’ tree bauble, putting your question up in Christmas lights, or of course, letting your partner come across the ring by surprise under the tree.  

If your partner loves going out to see the Christmas lights, going ice-skating, or if you have another festive season tradition together, these would all provide romantic and proposal-ready moments. There’s no shortage of festive season proposal ideas to be found on social media, so scroll around and get inspired!

4. It’s a great reminder to take some time out together 

While the Holiday season is often a whirlwind of gift-buying, cooking and decorating, and celebrations with friends and family, it can have the potential to become overly busy and stressful. If you’re planning to pop the question, it gives you an extra reason to organise a quiet, romantic moment for just the two of you to relax and enjoy each other’s company.


5. You can start the New Year with love 

With all that 2020 has thrown our way, what better way to start the New Year than with a promise of love? Whether you choose to pop the question at Christmas, on New Year’s Eve or any time during the Holidays, the two of you will be able to start 2021 assured of your love and commitment, and with all the excitement of your wedding plans.
