Hi lovelies! I had a little topic I wanted to discuss today as it's something I've seen bought up on twitter a couple of times and have seen two very conflicting views. The topic is having your partner propose at Christmas. Now don't start getting excited (or rolling your eyes!), I'm definitely not getting engaged this Christmas, I'm only 20, so no worries there! However, I saw a girl on twitter saying she thought having her man propose to her on Christmas day would be the most romantic thing ever (possibly a bit of a hint!??) and another replying, saying she thinks it's clich├ęd and impersonal. This got me thinking, while this isn't exactly relevant to me right now, how would I want to be proposed to?

Sure, the thought of my boyfriend browsing the pages of Chisholm Hunter or shopping in Tiffany's (a girl can dream!), is lovely, is the actual proposal just as important as the ring itself, or not? Personally, I can definitely see where the girl is coming from when she says Christmas is possibly a tad impersonal. Unless it has a significant meaning to the both of you, it does seem like a kind of predictable time to propose. Then again, does it matter? The person you love wants to marry you and in the grand scheme of things, does it really matter how they propose, as long as it's genuine and from the heart? I personally do think a proposal that's super personal and thoughtful would be lovely, however, I do also think you can overthink it, when really all it needs to be is personal to the two of you. So surely, if Christmas is something close to both of your hearts, there's nothing impersonal about that.

I'd really love to get your thoughts on this as I think it's a really interesting topic! Would you like to be proposed to at Christmas? (Now or in the future!) Or would you prefer something totally different?

Let me know!



  1. I can see where the cliche view may come from, but I totally agree with you. I guess it doesn't really matter if both of you feel you are ready and are prepared for the special event. I do think that it would definitely make a great surprise present for Christmas tho! <3 xx

  2. I think it honestly depends on how the couple feels about christmas. I just got engaged. It was a quiet moment between the both of us. I knew it was coming because we looked at rings together. It wasn't any less special since it wasn't on a holiday.

    I think it's just all depends on what the couple wants you know. It doesn't matter what others think of it, you know.

  3. I think regardless of the day as long as you want to spend the rest of your life with the person in question that's all that matters. I think they day its self is irrelevant as long as its romantic. My step-dad proposed to my mum on Christmas day when I was about 13 and we were all in tears. He was in his dressing gown and we were on the floor throwing wrapped paper everywhere, my Mum didnt say no and it wasn't the most romantic of proposals x
