Thinking about a wedding proposal for Christmas?

The holidays are special. They remind us of what's truly important in life—family and tradition. So what better time is there to take that first step in starting your own? 

Marriage proposals at Christmas are almost as prolific as reindeer, with thousands of guys getting down on one knee to pop the question. Problem is they're never quite sure how to do it and make it special. They need ideas!

So our team of elves have been hard at work to help you create a Christmas proposal idea that will completely delight her holiday heart.

Best part of all, you'll both have a keepsake of your proposal to cherish during the Holiday season for years to come!

Christmas Decoration: The Proposal & A Tree

Heart shaped Xmas decorations that spell out Will you marry me

Ideas for Christmas proposals come in all shapes and sizes but nothing says LOVE more than the classic heart shape.

Our design team created these wonderful ceramic heart-shaped tree ornaments as part of a 5 piece series.

Four of the ornaments contain a different and unique snowflake detail that sits below one very special word in the phrase "Will You Marry Me?". The fifth ornament also has an original snowflake design but is completely customizable so you can have the series personalized just for her.

You can print her full name, your special pet name for her, or anything else you'd like!

By personalizing the first ornament of the series with her name, you'll show her that you went the extra mile to make your proposal even more special.


Need some ideas on how to use these ornaments in a Christmas proposal?

Idea #1: Box them up and wrap them just like any other present! You can use a standard decorations box as shown in the picture above. Place the ornaments (each in it's own compartment) so that the phrase reads from top to bottom and left to right. Fill any remaining sections of the box with her favorite candies and make sure to leave one very special slot free for the ring!

Imagine how surprised and excited she'll be when she opens her Christmas gift, reads what's written, sees the ring box as you get down on one knee and read the words aloud. It'll be the start of a wonderful Christmas tradition—hanging these same very special decorations every year, in your future life together.

Idea #2: This second idea requires a little finesse because you won't be sure when she's going to realize what's happening, so you need to be able to think on your feet!

For this idea to work, you'll need a tree that's already been decorated with a ton of ornaments before you bring out your proposal decorations. She needs to be used to seeing the decorated tree for this surprise to work.

Make sure you do this on a night when you'll be spending a lot of time together near the tree. During the course of the evening, hang your wedding proposal on the tree amongst all the other decorations. Don't make them too hard to spot or too easy either.

She'll likely walk by the tree a dozen times and glance over occasionally but eventually she will spot your "will you marry me" message and realize that her Christmas dreams are coming true. So be ready, at a moment's notice to drop down on one knee, pull out the ring and ask for her hand in marriage.

Bring a little extra comfort to the holidays this year with your personalized wedding proposal printed on a fabulous Christmas pillow.

The front of the pillow features a whimsical graphic of a gift with the words "Merry Christmas" printed below. On the flip side, the gift box is open and a diamond ring is popping out with her name and the words "Will you marry me?" printed below.

Once you arrive at our store, personalizing the pillow with her name is very easy. Look for the Personalize it box and enter her name before the "Will you marry me?"

This is such a great idea!

She'll be so excited to unwrap a Holiday pillow and add it to her Xmas decor thinking that's all there is to it. Once she turns it around and realizes that it's in fact a proposal of marriage... the soft lush pillow won't be the only thing she's hugging. So have the ring at the ready for when that moment comes.
