On the contrary to what many may believe, getting engaged during the winter months can be a magical experience. You just need the right setting, right ring and right timing! Here are a few great winter engagement ideas that we love.
Sleigh ride. There are a lot of snowy havens you and yours can escape to during the winter months and, luckily, many of these offer fun winter activities. One of our favorite is sleigh rides! Mountain ranch resorts, for example Vista Verde Ranch in Colorado, often have sleigh rides available for anyone looking for a romantic adventure through the snow. This is the perfect chance to ask your other half to marry you.
Skiing. If you enjoy skiing and/or snowboarding with your partner during the snowy season, then this is another chance for you to pop the question in a special way. This is a little more unique to you and yours, because going to the mountain together may be something special you enjoy just between the two of you. Being high up on a snowy mountain after you hop off the ski lift gives you two a chance to be alone for a few minutes before you sail down the mountain, offering the perfect opportunity to ask. If you’re eager (and brave), grab a ski lift chair for just the two of you and ask then!
Hiking. If you two are adventurous in other ways and enjoy activities like hiking and exploring the outdoors, a nice short hike to a beautiful snow peaked mountain would be an excellent choice to get down on one knee and ask your person for their hand in marriage. This is a much more intimate setting if you’re trying to pop the question when it’s just the two of you.
Decorating your Christmas tree. If your person is helping decorate your Christmas tree for the holidays, or if you two live together, bump up the Christmas tunes, whip up some holiday style cocktails or mocktails (like mulled cider, hot toddies, or hot chocolate) and surprise him or her with that beautiful one-of-a-kind ring you’ve been hiding!
Christmas presents. Whether you two are wrapping gifts together for family and friends, or exchanging gifts with each other, popping the question during one of these events is exciting, heartwarming and sweet.
New Year’s Eve. Kickoff the New Year with an engagement to accompany your midnight kiss. As soon as the clock strikes 12am, add to the excitement of the New Year by expressing your wish to spend the rest of your life with your partner!
Any way you decide to propose to your love is going to be magical, but these are a few ideas to mull over if you can’t decide how you want to propose. Take your time to find the best that fits you two as a couple; personality and style wise. No matter how you decide to propose, this event will be magical and you’ll remember if for the rest of your life—you can’t go wrong!
