With Christmas just around the corner, it's time to think about the perfect gift for your significant other...
Let’s face it, everyone loves getting presents at Christmas - but that’s not what it’s all about! It’s a time for reflection, for love, for family and connectivity with your loved ones.
With all that joviality in the air, the mistletoe, the one-too-many sherries and gifts aplenty, emotions run high around Christmas time, so what better way to write your own perfect holiday romance than by popping the all important question - maybe on a romantic Christmas Eve?
It’s the perfect way to make both your Christmas - and your proposal - really special. Perhaps you’ll get down on one knee in front of the roaring hearth, as you sit cuddled up in front of the fire - or you’ll visit your favourite Christmas market and hide the ring in a mug of eggnog (Disclaimer: Not recommended!).
Whatever you choose, it’s sure to be a gorgeous moment that you’ll cherish and remember for years to come. But before all that, you’ve got to come up with the perfect gift - or maybe just the perfect ring! But don’t worry, we’re here to help you out.
Choosing the Perfect Ring
There are a few things you want to consider when choosing a ring for your significant other - whether it’s the ring you’re going to propose with, or you’re just looking for a beautiful gift.
Firstly, it’s important to consider their tastes - what gemstones they prefer, what metals for the base, or whether they like vintage or more contemporary designs. Take a look at some of their existing jewellery to help you get an idea, or if you’re subtle - just ask! You could also go jewellery shopping and see which rings your significant other is drawn to.
Remember to consider your budget! Don’t forget, it’s not a competition to spend as much as you can. If you have the luxury of a limitless budget, then of course you can ignore this bit!
You’ve also got to work out your partner's sizing - which can definitely be tricky without giving away your plans! It might be worth asking friends or relatives to help you out, but if that’s a no-go, you can always have a look at one of their existing rings.
