Can you guess the most popular time of year to propose? No, it’s not Valentine’s Day. Guess again… Yes, it’s Christmas! In fact, according to Goldsmith’s marriage proposal survey, more than 60% of people think winter is the best time to get down on one knee.
When you think about this time of year, it makes sense that Christmas would be the time to pop the question. Winter is the season that conjures images of log fires, hot chocolate with marshmallows, cosy blankets, indulgent food, outdoor ice rinks and snuggling up to the one you love.
What could be more romantic than a winter picnic for two? Blankets, festive food, mulled wine and candles – sounds perfect! If you don’t want to brave the cold weather, you could plan a picnic in front of an open fire, or wrap up warm and venture out into a beautiful winter setting.
Everyone has their favorite festive treat and the only thing that can make it better is being homemade. For a sweet proposal, bake their favorite seasonal delight and adorn it with your proposal. They’ll be putty in your hands! You could even put these in your picnic basket.
Say it With Snow
If you live in an area where you’re lucky enough to enjoy a white Christmas, then you have the perfect setting for a romantic proposal. Even if you don’t get the real stuff, you can add to the festive atmosphere with fake snow. Pop the question by writing it in the snow and watch their face light up!
Imagine the scene: you’re walking hand-in-hand with your loved one, passing frosted trees and smelling the fresh winter air. Heaven! You could simply get down on one knee, or, for a super romantic proposal, light up the path with candles or add lights to the trees.
A Warming Drink
When winter sets in and the temperatures drop, there’s nothing better than a hot beverage to warm you up. Whether your partner is a coffee drinker or enjoys a hot chocolate, pop the question with latte art, or put your message at the bottom of the cup so they find it as they finish their drink.
Winter is the season for wrapping up, keeping warm and spending time with the ones you love. Try one of these proposal ideas for a romantic winter engagement that shows them just how you feel.
