Others like to have a surprise and fairytale element where they create a spectacular setting, choose the ring themselves and present that there and then to their prospective life partner. Of course to do it that way, in a setting such as a wonderful cliff top is the stuff of dreams and you'll no doubt have your partner swooning at your feet in awe of your efforts. To achieve that is no mean feat and it does require minute and specific planning. The biggest effort will go into choosing the ring for your partner behind their back.
