    My fiance had it loose in his shirt pocket. If I had chosen how to do it though, I would have definitely gone with the box!

    Mine proposed with the box (: He didn’t have to hide it though, because he proposed at home and just called me into the room he was in. As soon as I walked in he said his speech, got down on one knee, and opened the box (:

    In a box, but not the ring box. πŸ˜‰ Fiance and I are obsessed with Domo figurines, especially the blind boxes. So when he proposed, he placed the ring in Domo’s hands and put it back in the blind box. When I opened it, I was shocked and it was perfect! I think however you present the ring to your gf, as long as it’s thoughtful and from the heart, it will be great!

    Well..let’s see. He chucked the ring box into Niagara Falls and then got down on his knee with the ring. I don’t know what that counts as. He hid the box and ring in his hoodie pocket. 

    I knew the ring was around. He spent the night before and the lunch that day teasing me with it by sitting the box out where I could see it. He also made me close my eyes so he could test the ring size on my finger. When we went to the Falls I thought he had left it in the car though, so it was still a surprise.

     

    ETA: We’re really not that crazy.  I swear.

    He had it in the box until right before he proposed on a knoll with a beautiful view of the mountains behind us. His hands were shaking and he tried to put it on the wrong hand. I, of course, said yes and gave him the right hand πŸ™‚

    @plantobee:  ah this is so cute you are asking for ladies advice. My fiancé had the ring in the box when he presented it to me. he actually carried it around in his cowboy boot!!! We were on holidays so he kept waiting for the perfect day, carrying it around in his boot. He did this for days until he proposed!! I love that he did that.

    My fiancé proposed last night! We were at dinner waiting for our dessert and we shared a moment where we were just looking at each other & grinning and I said ‘I still get butterflies when I look at you’. He responded by pulling the ring out of his jeans pocket & saying ‘what happens when you see this?’ I was so surprised!! He then asked ‘Will you marry me?’ and while I cried happy tears and said ‘yes!’ he slipped it on my finger πŸ˜€ Turns out he had been caring it around in his pocket (without box) for a couple days just waiting for the right moment.

    Fiance proposed with the ring in the box. It was Christmas Eve and we drove to a park with this huge walk way of lit up Christmas trees. We weren’t walking around for very long before he proposed and he had the box in his jacket pocket and I had no idea! But he did keep his hand in his pocket most of the time but it was cold so that’s normal lol. He just told me he had one last present for me and told me to close my eyes then when I opened them he was down on one knee with the box open (: honestly she’ll love any way you propose to her! But that sounds so romantic. He had some other cute ideas that he told me. I worked at a shoe store so he was going to buy me some really ugly shoes and help me try them on and the ring would be in the bottom of the shoe then he’d already be down on one knee and propose. He also thought of going somewhere I like that has a gum machine and getting me a piece of gum but it would actually be the ring box in there and then he would already be on one knee too. It was cute to see what other ways he thought of proposing too. But congrats on your future engagement it sounds perfect to me.

    @TriciaG:  that’s actually a great idea to wait for the right moment insteplaid planning it. It’s so spontaneous that way! But brave of him to carry it around!

    FH proposed with the ring in the box. I even knew it was in his pocket and couldn’t see it.

    My fiance proposed with the box, but it was winter, so he was able to hide the box in his jacket πŸ™‚ Good luck!

    My Fiance did it without a ring box, outside! I haven’t even thought about the whole box/no box thing so it won’t be a big deal. As you said, a box would be quite noticeable!

    My Fi proposed with the box, and it was a really warm day, and I guess he had the box in his pocket? I have no idea, I didn’t see it or look for it.

    Don’t overthink it. I’m sure she won’t even notice the box in your pocket!
