H Samuel launches “proposal packs” for men who want to propose in the store

man,proposing marriage.gifPicture the scene, you’ve popped into the jewellers with your other half to pick up a birthday present for a friend when one of you gets the urge to propose and gets down on one knee there and then.

We didn’t think this was a regular occurrence and proposing in the middle of a packed shop (we’d just about accept Tiffany) is hardly romantic, but H Samuel thinks otherwise.

According to the highstreet store, spontaneous acts of romance have tripled in it’s branches in the past year, often by men acting spontaneously when they see sight of trays of engagement rings.

Store staff have now been provided with a ‘proposal pack’ including a soft cushion and a bottle of bubbly to make it more comfortable and romantic for the men caught up in
the moment.

The pack also includes a pack of tissues to dry any tears from emotional women as they, hopefully, say yes. The pack will be given to any love-struck couple who get engaged in the store, as long as they buy a ring from the new Christmas Kisses range.

We’re not sure about you, but we hardly think this is the most romantic way to ask someone to marry you. Let us know what you think by leaving your comments below.

    This is clearly just a marketing stunt. I would be horrified if I was proposed to in a jewellry shop and no amount of free tissues would convince me otherwise! I just hope men around the country don’t get convinced that this is the way to go.

    Too right… it sounds awful! If my h2b had proposed to me like that, I would have been mortified. If H. Samuels really want to go down that path to try and encourage people to buy their rings, why not offer a free bottle of champagne and some nice glasses with each purchase then the chap in question can use them in a more romantic setting…
