Seven Christmas and New Year Proposal Ideas for Men with Romance on Their Minds
22 Dec 2015
Festive cheer and that holiday feeling can make for a wonderfully romantic proposal. Here are eight ideas for a special engagement to see the New Year in
1. After a delicious treat
Delightful food served with love is the way to many people’s hearts. Treat your future fiancée to a three-course candlelit meal either at home or in a classy restaurant on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. Choose your other half’s favourite cuisine – whether that’s a fragrant curry, Thai meal, classic British grub or exotic sushi. To pull out all the stops, order a bottle of Champagne to celebrate and ask the kitchen to serve the ring with, or in the place of the starter or dessert. The look on your bride-to-be’s face will be priceless.
2. On ice
At this time of year, temporary outdoor ice rinks are assembled up and down the UK for amateur skaters to enjoy. Glide onto one of them under a starlit sky and get in close before you crouch onto bended knee and pop the question. Just don’t drop the ring…
3. Catch them by surprise
Surprise your beloved and catch them off guard for an unexpected proposal. Doing something relatively normal with a unique twist will ensure they don’t see it coming. Why not try going to see a classic festive film at a romantic cinema venue over the Christmas or New Year period?
Try a roof-top winter cinema experience with mince pies and hot chocolate, or wine and canapés at the Berkeley Health Club & Spa in Knightsbridge. The venue has transformed its roof top terrace overlooking Hyde Park into a cinema this December for hotel guests and Londoners. Watch Miracle on 34th Street or Polar Express on the big screen with a glass of wine and a blanket.
Screenings take place throughout December with two screenings per night at 5pm and 7pm on weekdays and 7pm on weekends. From £65 per person.
4. Personalised bauble
Let the holiday spirit inspire your proposal and create a personalised bauble gift for your partner with the words ‘will you marry me’ written onto the design. You’ll treasure the memorable day together when you hang the bauble on the Christmas tree each year.
5. A romantic walk
Sneak away from the festivities for a snowy romantic wander together. Visit the place you first kissed, or shared your first date, then hand your partner the ring which has been burning a hole in your pocket since you left the house!
