Scared of getting ripped off? Don’t want to waste your money? Confused by all the choices? Contact us.

Your big day is coming and you have created the perfect proposal. You have the right idea, found the best location, and you feel as prepared as possible. You get dressed for the special moment, take out the engagement ring, and you realize it is in the world’s biggest box! “How am I going to hide this from her?” you ask yourself. As Proposal Planners, our clients ask us this question all the time. Here are some ideas on how to hide your bulky engagement ring box.

 Thin Engagement Ring Box

Ditch your bulky ring box for a slim, robust version that will keep your ring safe, secure, and hidden. Ring Stash offers a thin engagement ring box which measures .5” thick, 1/4 of the size of a standard engagement ring box. The light-weight and low-profile design will be sure to keep your intentions a surprise.

 Go Commando

While we don’t recommend this risky strategy, you could just put the ring in your jean pocket with no box. This will likely cause some stress, as you will constantly be wondering if it is safe, secure, and lint-free. But it is a last resort option.

 Do the Unthinkable

Desperate times call for desperate measures. If it’s too late to buy a compact engagement ring box, and you don’t want to risk the ring being unsecured in your pocket, you can always put the engagement ring box in your sock. Just pray it doesn’t fall out!

When planning your special proposal, don’t forget to think your whole day through.  Figuring out how to hide your engagement ring is an important part of the surprise.
