As Valentine’s Day approaches you might be planning to mark the occasion by popping the big question. And that probably means you’re angsting about the ring situation. What setting should you plump for? How much should you spend? Should you even bother with a ring at all or just let your other half choose their own—presuming they say yes, of course!
Good news for anyone in that situation—Poundland has come up with a range of four cheap and cheerful engagement rings for you to choose from. Each is presented in a red heart-shaped box with the tagline ‘Because we promise they’ll want to choose their own’.
It’s been found in the past that 10% of people can’t stand their engagement ring, and a quarter of all men now cautiously propose without a ring at all. And with all the pressure of spending three month’s salary on a sparkler that your other half will wear for life, it’s really no wonder.
So whether you’re picking up a ring from Poundland as a placeholder, or it’s simply all you can afford, we say just go for it. After all, true love isn’t about price tags—it’s most definitely the thought that counts. Just remember, the most romantic movie proposal of all time came from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the accompanying ring was a free prize from a bag of Cracker Jacks!
