Hang an Engagement Ring Christmas Ornament on the Tree

One popular holiday proposal involves hanging the ring box directly from the Christmas tree or placing it inside a unique ornament to hang from the tree.

You can find a nice array of engagement ring Christmas ornaments online and in stores during the holidays. These specially made decorations run the gamut from basic to personalized with your names and the date.

Want to be a little more creative and make it yourself? Fillable, empty glass ornaments of various sizes are easy to find and can be filled with her engagement ring and a special message surrounded by velvet, satin or rose petals. Write “Marry me” on the outside with a paint pen or adorn it with ribbon and get ready for romance. If you can dream it, you can do it, so get creative when decorating the tree and make it memorable for this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.


Print those Engaged Christmas Cards

Confidence goes a long way when you plan a proposal; sometimes, it’s worth going all out to create that memorable moment. With this in mind, consider crossing your fingers and assuming she’ll say “yes” by having some “engaged” Christmas cards printed before you get down on bended knee.

Whether you’re having a nice dinner out or getting cozy beside the fireplace, pass your love that card in an envelope and watch the flush of sweet surprise on her face. When she reads “Will you marry me?” alongside your names and the date, she will appreciate your efforts and melt in your arms with a resounding “yes.”

You can even add a photo of her John Atencio engagement ring on the card to make her eyes widen with amazement. Then, present her with the real thing for an effect you’ll remember for the rest of your lives.


Knock her Socks off with the Most Creative Marriage Proposal

If you want to surprise her when you propose, go the extra mile for her hand in marriage. Since flash mobs are currently frowned upon due to their public nature, instead, you can plan a treasure hunt that ends in discovering a distinctive John Atencio engagement ring. Or, if you prefer, make a trail of increasingly intriguing gifts that lead to the big surprise.

You can plot an evening of board games, replacing her play piece with her ring. You could also propose while playing in the snow, slipping her ring into the finger of her gloves first. Or, be original, pull that wishbone from your Christmas Eve turkey, and let her win her ring.

Regardless of which route to her heart you choose, the result will be the one you long for when you go with an engagement ring from John Atencio.


Ask Her to be Yours with a Traditionally Creative Christmas Proposal

Your proposal doesn’t have to be outlandish to elicit your desired response. Christmas has been a fantastic time for marriage proposals, so hop on the bandwagon and get that John Atencio engagement ring ready.

If you’re one for tradition, tie her ring to the mistletoe and pull her in for a kiss to seal the deal. Not sure how to propose on Christmas Day? Stash that pretty box under the tree or in the bottom of her stocking for a Christmas morning surprise.

You can ask your love to spend her life with you amidst the decorations on the doorstep, during a Christmas photoshoot or after you spell out your grand intentions in Christmas lights.

Whatever the case, staying close to home to propose will be anything but boring when you gift her with an engagement ring from John Atencio. An Atencio ring is the most exquisitely bold statement of your promise to love her forever.
