Engagement ring box ideas

We all know that women (and even some men) notice the little details and extra effort that someones’ put into a gift and that this additional thought can sometimes mean more to them than the presents themselves. If you’re currently reading this, it’s likely that you already have your engagement ring sorted you’re now just looking for those few extra touches.

Choosing a customisable, unique ring box will definitely not go unnoticed and will have her bragging to her friends about what an amazing fiance you are. It also shows off how much you care and the extra steps you’re willing to take to make her feel special and important. 

With that said here are our selection of fun and creative engagement ring boxes.

For all you Harry Potter Fans...

Present your loved one with a ring inside this timeless classic and watch her face light up as she finds the ring of her dreams in her favourite Harry Potter book.

The front and back pages of the book are left free, but a small section fronted by the chapter “The Unbreakable Vow” has been carefully carved and glued to create a heart shaped gap for you to safely store your engagement ring. There’s also a ribbon to attach the ring to to ensure it doesn’t escape! Depending on how you rate your art skills and if you fancy a little DIY project, you could technically make this one yourself. Just make sure you practice on a book that you don’t mind cutting up first!

For the proposal, you could put the book on your bookshelf and ask her to get it down for you and read from a certain page, or you could give the book to her as a gift and have her open it to find the engagement ring and you behind her kneeling on one knee.

TIP: if Harry Potter books aren’t really your jam but you still love the idea of proposing via a book, you can always request for another book of your choice to be used. Just visit Etsy.

If you want to record your proposal...

So you’ve put in all this extra effort into your proposal, why not record it so that you can look back at your proposal in the future and relive the memories with your partner, family and friends? More than half of individuals planning an engagement proposal have reported hiring a photographer or videographer to capture the special moment. Wouldn’t it be so much easier, cheaper and more intimate if you could do this yourself with the same high quality video produced?

We introduce you to EngagementCam – a neat black engagement ring box with a hidden camera that can record your fiancé’s reaction with the click of a button, fuss-free. There’s no need to rely on a stranger to record your proposal, you can do it all yourself and document your partners live reaction.

Once recorded, you simply send your footage back to the EngagementCam team and they edit the video for you free of charge. This way the raw and potentially embarrassing footage doesn’t need to be shown to the whole world, instead you’ll receive a perfectly put together, romantic video of your proposal which you can either share with your friends and family or keep to yourself to remember the moment.

The great thing about the EngagementCam is the camera is completely discreet and not noticeable so you still have the traditional black engagement ring box but with a modern twist. This also means that you’re more likely to get an authentic, real reaction to your proposal, not one that’s altered by the presence of a noticeable camera.

About Us

He knew the type of ring his partner wanted and the setting for the proposal, but he didn’t know how he was going to capture the moment for them both.
