DO: Include family and friends

Holidays are a time of being around the ones you love most, and there’s no better way to show her you love her than by showing her ALL of the people that love her.  If you want the proposal to be intimate between the two of you, create a video of everyone sending their well wishes to play her after you pop the question!

DON’T: Wrap the ring like a gift and give it to her to open

We say, keep it old fashioned.  Get down on one knee, present the ring, and put it on her finger yourself.  If you want her to unwrap something, get her matching earrings!
