The Most Wonderful Time of the Year
According to several statistics, 33 percent of engagements happen during the holidays between Thanksgiving and New Years. December is in full swing, which means holiday engagements are in the works! If you’re a guy who wants to propose during this season but are running dry on ideas, here are a few fun suggestions for popping the question!
Snowy Mountain Proposal
According to Albuquerque the Magazines 2012 “Best of the City”, the Sandia Tram and Sandia Peak were named as one of the top places to pop the question. We don’t get much snow down here in Albuquerque, so The Peak would be a wonderful place snowy place to pop the question (keep your fingers crossed for snow though!). Write “Will You Marry Me?” in the snow as she watches, or have a friend do it right before you get up there. To add to the fun, in preparation, have your honey dress up in her coziest winter gear, (knitted scarf and hat a must!), but don’t tell don’t tell her where you’re going. Resorts like Angel Fire Resort in Angel Fire, NM or other mountain towns like Ruiodoso or Taos and would work great as well!

A Romantic Christmas Serenade
Imagine the surprised look on her face as carolers in the form of Los Primos come knocking at your door! Arrange for a door step serenade by Los Primos and pop the question to their festive and romantic sounds. I was serenaded right before my proposal and LOVED it!
Christmas Movie Night
A nostalgic night in with your favorite Christmas movies makes for a cute proposal set up that she definitely won’t expect. Make a bowl of popcorn and place the ring at the bottom. As you make your way through the fluffy goodness, she’ll discover the engagement ring and then you can propose!
Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Offer to help her set up and decorate her Christmas tree. Make an event out of it with plenty of hot chocolate and Christmas tunes playing in the background. Once you’ve trimmed and decorated the tree, give her one last special ornament to put on the tree that says, “Will you Marry Me?”. Now guys, you might have to get a little crafty here, but it’s not as challenging as you might think. An undecorated ball ornament from Hobby Lobby and a little glitter glue to write the message is all you’ll need! If you’re not up to creating your own ornament, you can buy a personalized ornament with your proposal message from Monica over at Mon Amie Paperie out of Albuquerque.
Play Santa at a Christmas party you know she’ll be attending and have someone you both know convince her to sit on Santa’s lap. As soon as she starts telling you what she wants for Christmas, interrupt and ask if you can tell her what you want. As soon as she gives you the go ahead, get down on one knee, take off your beard and ask the big question!
Ring in the New Year
Celebrate the New Year by adding some extra sparkle to your girlfriends glass of bubbly. At the stroke of midnight, hand her a champagne glass with a little custom made bling from Romero Jewelers and tell her you want her to be your one and only from here unto eternity! Whatever you do, make sure she doesn’t accidentally swallow the ring!
