This holiday season, make your Christmas proposal one to remember with one of these unique ideas. From festive ways to incorporate the family pet to fun activities that will get everyone in the holiday spirit, there’s sure to be an idea here that will fit your relationship perfectly. So start planning and get ready to ask the question you’ve been dying to ask – will you marry me?

Get a personalized Christmas ornament shaped like an engagement ring with your proposal date engraved on it

An engraved, personalized Christmas ornament is the perfect way to keep your proposal alive. Whether it has been years or only days since you have popped the question, an ornament with the date of your proposal inscribed on it is a wonderful representation of your love. Your significant other can hang this meaningful gift on their Christmas tree each year and be reminded of when the two of you decided to take this meaningful step in your relationship together. This one-of-a-kind keepsake will be a cherished reminder for years to come, calling back memories of your romantic proposal every holiday season.

Set up a fake snowman scene in your yard with the ring box hidden inside

Nothing says winter romance like proposing to your significant other with a hidden ring box inside of a handmade snowman. Transform your backyard into a magical romantic setting and give the one you love an experience of a lifetime. Capture the memories in photos of this unforgettable moment. Once the big question has been asked, snuggle up and finish off the winter night by stargazing under the illuminated sky with your happily ever after beginning in that very moment.

Make gingerbread houses together and put the ring inside one of them

Making a gingerbread house with your significant other is not only a fun, creative activity, but it can also be romantic. Adding your own spin to classic holiday decorating is a great bonding experience. Taking it one step further, inserting the engagement ring into one of the gingerbread houses is sure to be an exciting and meaningful surprise! Whether you make all the details on your houses together or one person takes care of all the frostings and decorations, bringing this unique idea to life will create memories that you and your partner will never forget.

Go ice skating together and when you’re done, get down on one knee and propose

Skating together can be a fun and romantic way to spend time with your special someone. Who doesn’t love the feeling of gliding along on smooth ice, side-by-side in peaceful bliss? After skating and showing off your skills (or lack thereof!), getting down on one knee and proposing is the perfect climax to the evening. There’s nothing more romantic than professing your love in such an iconic motion, and it will surely create a memory that both you and your significant other will treasure forever! So don’t wait any longer; put on your skates, enjoy a romantic spin around the rink, and make that special someone yours forever!

Wrap the ring box in a big box and give it to her as a present

Surprise her with something truly unique this year by wrapping the ring box in a large box and giving it to her as a gift. Make sure that it doesn’t look like a typical present – go for some extra magic and grandeur by getting creative with the wrapping materials that make up the larger box. If you’re feeling extra confident, add special touches inside like personalized notes, photos or other keepsakes that add an extra level of thoughtfulness to the gift. Whatever your strategy is, receving a large box is always thrilling and serves an added layer of anticipation before finally uncovering what goes on within its cardboard walls!

Have Santa Claus come to your house and propose to her while he’s there

Imagine the look on your partner’s face if Santa arrived at your home and proposed to them! Not only would they be overcome with surprise, they’d be filled with joy. Santa can take a special moment like this and make it even more memorable by being the one to pop the question in a unique way. With some planning ahead of time, you can make sure that all of the preparations are in place for when he arrives. Having Santa come to your home might just be the perfect way for you to show your significant other how much you care about them and how committed you are to having a lifetime together.

How to Measure

The Tape Method

1. Grab a tape measure, string, or strip of paper.

2. Wrap it around the finger you’ll wear your ring on—if you’re creating a ring stack, consider where on your finger the ring will sit—and mark where it joins with a pen.

3. Lay your string or paper strip on a flat surface and measure the length up to the mark using a ruler. Use the chart above to match the measurement to the closest Abelstedt ring size.

Measure finger for ring size

Measure an Existing Ring

1. Choose a ring that already fits the finger well.

2. Measure the inner diameter of the ring in millimeters (mm).

Abelstedt Gifting Tips

  • If you’re between sizes, go for the larger size if the ring is wide and the smaller size if the ring is narrow.
  • There’s not a large difference between two subsequent sizes on the size chart. If in doubt, go with your gut. You can always exchange the size through our easy returns process.
