Top 10 Nerdy, Creative and Unusual Ring Boxes

When it comes to that special day that you propose to your loved one nothing should be overlooked. But for us men often forget that women can “pop” the question as well! Traditionally it’s on the twenty-ninth of February (a leap year), but I think it’s becoming more popular for women to bite the bullet and ask anytime they like. But what sort of box should people (men and women) present the rings in? Well, if you are proposing to a nerd like me, one of these would go down rather nicely…

10 – If I was dating Andy’s mum…

It would take a very cold person to say “no!” when asked the big question with this as the ring presentation box. Featuring all our favourite Toy Story characters, it is sure to bring a smile to whoever it was presented to.

7 – Herbie says yes! (does anyone even remember Herbie!?!

Humble, cool, sweet and maybe even a little nerdy, this rather cool looking VW bug ring box bring a nice smile to the face and doesn’t cost the earth like most the others do.

6 – Will you be my companion?

If I had known about this when I was making the blog post “Portal Cube Inspired Items” it might well have made the top 10! But I am more than happy to have included it in this one, a great way to propose and any Portal 2 fan is sure to say “yes!” once they see this.

Stargate Engagement Ring Box

5 – Why not team up with Col. Jack O’Neill and discover new worlds!

This is in fact just a rendering of what would, in fact, be a great idea. These “Stargate SG1” ring boxes might just be an idea but they are sure to engage perfectly with whoever is going to put their finger into the ring, or if you are going to marry a Goa’uld the “Chappa’ai”.

4 – You light up my stars! Will you marry me?!?

You just couldn’t find a ring box that is any more simple, more deadly effective and cool all in one box. But this is, in fact, nothing more simple than a plain wooden ring box and a printed image of our favourite Next Gen captain with his classic “engage” pose! Sheer awesomeness.

3 – Getting proposed to is a real shock to the system!

This is right up there on the nerdy scale for sure! What you are looking at is Big Daddies (originally named Protectors from the Bio-Shock games) and they are genetically enhanced human beings who have had their skin and organs grafted into an enormous diving suit! What better way to say I love you eh!

Super Mario Arcade ring box

2 – Game on!

There is just too much to love about this one, maybe it is how cool it is, or maybe that it was hand-made.

TARDIS Inspired Ring Box

1 – Don’t worry, all his assistants fall in love with him!

Did you know that once upon a time “The Doctor” did, in fact, wear a ring! It was said to be linked to the TARDIS. In the episode “The Daleks’ Master Plan” the Doctor says that his ring has ‘special properties’, and he uses it to repair the damaged TARDIS lock. Well, why not put your ring in this and make a Whovians dreams come true.

  3. I think #2 is really cool. It shows true creativity and thought. It is simple and yet you know when you get it that it was made with love.

  4. My Dad gave me the engagement ring at one minute after midnight but wouldn’t show me the wedding ring until he had instructions from Ed. When When I gave Ed the ring for our wedding, I told him the next time he gives me this ring, he wasn’t ever getting it back.

  5. I love the Tardis, especially since it comes up rather than have the door open or it splits in the middle. I also like the one with the double ring – great idea. The expensive ones are interesting too – my ring came in the mail because I was here and he was in Australia. Plus, he sent it to my Dad rather than me.

  6. lol, kind of. But I don’t know. There’s something about him that makes him quite lovable for a long time lol

  7. Well Vohn you surprise me, being a Whovian and a Gater I would have though you would have gone for them over Wall-E, but it seems he is getting far more love then all the others combined!

  8. Much as I am a StarGate & DrWho nerd, for me the Wall-E is the cutest. I love the sentiment in the gamer one though “Player one READY, Player two PRESS START” – genius! Thanks for following my blog, Vohn

  9. Wall-E – how cute is that? Stargate rates up there pretty high as well. This has to be your cutest “10 Best” yet.

  10. The red beetle’s cute (yes I remember Herbie!) They’re all rather inventive but for me I think Mario steals it purely because it’s hand made… if someone went to that much trouble to make a proposal extra special, how could you say no?! 🙂

  11. I don’t like any of them. They don’t seem sincere. If you are sure look them in the eye and tell them so. Take the ring out of the box and ask her. Nothing more romantic then that blaze looking into your eyes saying I desire you more then anything on earth. You are mine. I know that blaze and it lasts too. Very few people do and that is something that needs to change. We woman are helpless against it. When it is returned whoooaaa.

  12. Box schmox — just give me the jewelry! But seriously…wait, I was serious. Anyway, these are really cute. I think my favorite is Wall-e cause I’m a sucker for inanimates with personality. Course that could be a guy,too. And, yes, I remember Herbie!

  13. I never, ever, plan on marrying again …
    (I’m reminded of a man’s line – “It’d be cheaper if every 5 years, I just found a woman I hate and buy her a house” – though I didn’t get the house…LOL)

    BUT, if I was presented with the Stargate or Trek box and ring, I think I might have to say yes, just to have the box/ unique ring…
    How long do you have to stay married to keep the ring and the box it came in, without offending rules of etiquette??
    LOL

  14. Especially liked Herbie and Super Mario. Not sure how I would feel about staring down Captain Piccard while being proposed to :-). These are great.

  15. That TARDIS one is cool. Would have better if there had been an R2-D2 hehe. Seriously, I like the TARDIS, but it’s a little expensive. I like the Super Mario 1UP 2UP .. it says so much with so little

  16. Now who would have ever thunk it?? haha! I love the LCD one, but then I have expensive tastes sometimes. 😉 Although any would make me smile.

Which one did you like?
