But when it comes to gifting the ring, there are more than a hundred ways to do it. It doesn’t always have to be gifted in a ring box. The presentation of the ring should be a representation of the journey and love shared between you and the special person you gift the ring to.
In this post, we have put together a small list of some of the creative and romantic ways you can gift a ring without a ring box.
9 Tips on How To Gift Wrap A Ring Without A Box.
Ring boxes are a sure tell of what your gift is going to be and that might spoil the surprise especially if it’s for an engagement. To keep things fun and unique, here are alternative ways to gift the ring that will leave your partner speechless and utterly surprised:
This is the easiest way to surprise your partner with a ring, especially if she had no idea the moment was coming.
You can plant the ring in an arrangement of roses or her favorite flowers. Alternatively, you can stick the ring on the inside of a gift card, with heartfelt words written on it, and place the cards in the bouquet.
2. Box of Chocolates.
This is another classic yet easy way of gifting a ring. It is a sure method that has never failed for generations now because what girl can say no to chocolate?
All you need is a box of her favorite chocolates and you are set. Simply place the ring inside the box and enjoy the surprised look on her face when she sees it after opening the box.
To make the moment more intimate, you could express your love with heartfelt words on a small gift card and place it in the box along with the ring.
3. Picture frames.
This is a unique alternative to using a gift box and there are many ways you can present the ring using this method.
One way is placing the ring behind the picture so it appears like something is off, that way she won’t miss it when you gift her the frame.
An alternative would be to frame a picture of the two of you and stick the ring at the front of the frame using tape, wrap it and gift it.
4. Message in a bottle.
If your partner is whimsy and believes in fairytales, then this is a great alternative to use. It’s an out-of-the-box idea and one she wouldn’t miss.
All you need is to purchase the bottle kit online. You could also opt to use a clear wine bottle that you’ve thoroughly cleaned, just be sure that the ring can easily get in and out through the bottleneck.
Write a small heartfelt message, and wrap the ring with it before placing it inside the bottle.
You can wrap a pretty bow on the bottle for that extra touch and voila! The gift is ready to be presented. You can do it directly or let her find it.
5. Treasure Chest.
Another whimsical out-of-the-box alternative is to use a mini treasure chest box. You can get one online on platforms like Amazon.
To make it even more fun, you can bury the chest in the backyard or on the beach on one of your fun days out. You can then hold a treasure hunt and let her find the ring.
6. Sea Shells.
This is another great and unique idea, especially if she loves collecting shells. On your day out on the beach, you can find a shell to put the ring in.
Bonus points if you can find a shell that encloses like an oyster shell.
Alternatively, if you don’t want to take any chances you can purchase a shell-designed case and place the ring inside.
You can then gift it to her in the guise of a shell to add to her collection.
7. Hollowed book.
This is a cute and unique idea if your partner is a bookworm. If there is a book she wanted, you can get two copies; the original and an altered copy that’s hollow inside for you to place the ring.
Wrap the altered copy and present it to her as if you were gifting her a book.
Tell her to open and read the note you left inside so she sees the ring right away.
Lockets are already sweet sentimental gifts on their own. This way you would be wrapping one piece of jewelry in another one.
You can also have the locate engraved with your initials or a special message. She’ll be extremely surprised to open the locket and find a ring inside instead of the usual picture.
9. Christmas ornament.
This is a great idea if the ring is meant to be a Christmas gift. Instead of a box, you can get a personalized Christmas tree ornament that you can place the ring in.
If it’s an engagement ring, you can have the words ‘Will you marry me’ and the date engraved on the ornament.
The ornament will become a cherished keepsake and even an heirloom passed on to the next generation.
There you have it, out-of-the-box ideas on how you can gift a ring, as opposed to the traditional ring box.
If you’re planning an engagement then using one of these ideas will definitely make it a one-of-a-kind moment.
Remember, the presentation of the gift should symbolize your relationship to the person you gift the ring.
