It’s always special when one receives a
well thought out gift from the one they love. Such is the case when reddit user Polyfractal made up his mind to propose to his significant other and he set out to make a beautiful wooden engagement ring box and a wooden ring as a placeholder.

So I arranged around 100 mason jars in a big field. Each jar held a little LED tealight. Once it got dark, I told my girlfriend there was a meteor shower and we should go watch.
She said “no thanks honey, why don’t you go without me?” 🙁
Since my first angle failed, I fell back on plan b: I told her that I instead had a surprise for her because I sorta forgot our anniversary a few months earlier (semi-true story). She acquiesced and followed me to the field…after all, who can say no to a surprise?
At the field, it started to rain lightly. I held her hands, gave a sappy little speech and dropped to a knee, proposing with the box I’d spent the last month working on. She said yes!
