Five Great British wedding proposal gifts
07 Apr 2016
Whether you’re at the top of the Eiffel Tower, out on a picnic, or simply in your own cosy living room, make sure your other half feels extraordinary when you propose with one of these gifts designed for a romantic “will you marry me?” moment
Fancy a popping the question over a champagne picnic? Look no further. This picnic basket comes with a bottle of Champagne Bollinger Rosé, hand-dipped chocolate marshmallows, a box of a dozen handmade milk chocolate hearts from Kiki's Chocolates of Coldingham and an indulgent Tipple Tails Great Taste Award Cherry Orchard Fruit Cake – a rich treat with almonds, cherries and delicious cherry and almond liqueur.
To top it all off, and to ensure the pair of you don’t get too chilly in the fresh British air, a Scottish 100 per cent lambswool Highland Rose blanket from Lochcarron of Scotland is included.
From Jones and Jones of Berwick-upon-Tweed, £245
Indulge in a bottle of Grand Cuvee Champagne with a personalised label, so you can ask the all important question with a unique twist. Or perhaps, if courage isn’t on your side, you can let the bottle spell out exactly what you want to say. The artist-designed labels and the option to choose the wine and bespoke text offer a lovely personalised way to ask for your partner’s hand in marriage.
From Bottle Bazaar, £40
If you're popping the question somewhere private, make sure you're comfortable both pre and post proposal with this extremely apt 'Be Mine' cushion. Handmade to order, the 16"x16" cushion features red felt letters that spell out the ultimate statement. When it comes to proposing, every detail matters and an accessory like this will only serve to remind you of the moment that he/she said "Yes".
From Little England, £46.54
4. Diamond Meteor Ring in 9ct White Gold
