It’s time to be thankful! Well, you should be thankful all the time, but November tends to be the time that people really focus on what they’re especially grateful in their lives. If you have a significant other that you want to spend the rest of your life with, now is the time to show her just how thankful you are.
What better time is there to propose than on Thanksgiving, where you can have the recurring theme of being thankful for having each other in your lives? Here are three proposal ideas!
1. Seating Arrangements Thanksgiving Proposal
If you have a formal sit-down dinner, find a way to put the ring on your place card, her plate, or even tie it to her water/wine glass. Just make sure she sees it!! If not, you’ll eventually have to point it out as you get down on one knee. Yes, that may be difficult at the table– but still oh so important. You could even have a replacement place card that says, “Look [to your left/right]” or “Look behind you.” Also, if you put it on her plate– make sure it’s secure (aka in the box).
2. Football Thanksgiving Proposal, anyone?
If you’re a family that has the tradition of a football game after the big dinner to help work off those extra calories, find a time during the game to let your sweetie know how badly you want her on your team, if you know what I mean. Whether it’s when you’re picking people for your team or after you score and she’s cheering from the sidelines, there’s nothing better than a casual, fun proposal.
3. End of the night Thanksgiving Proposal
If you don’t want to risk proposing in front of the family (though I’m pretty sure that’s what proposing on Thanksgiving entails), wait until you retire for the night (or walk her to her door) and tell her how thankful you are for the time together, the holiday, and you had one more thing to ask/do before Thanksgiving was over. That, of course, is your cue to drop to one knee.
Personally, I would rather a guy propose before I stuffed my face so I didn’t have the turkey-hangover-bloated-food-belly thing going on.
