Reddit user Justinlebon26 and his girlfriend, Michal, wanted to begin a new life with each other. They have always loved playing Monopoly, and they even used a handmade board back in the day. Unfortunately, the board fell apart after a few years and so it was time for a new board.

Justin wanted to do something really unique when he decided to propose on Christmas morning. So how would he make his proposal one-of-a-kind? Well, how about a custom-made Monopoly board to pop the question?
