3 Easy Ways To Make Your Christmas Proposal Perfect

Posted on Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 at 9:34 pm by Kate

The lights are twinkling gently, the snow is lightly falling, and there’s magic in the air. Could there be a more perfect time to propose? At Dickinson Jewelers, we know the holidays are an amazing time to get engaged...and we know that it can be overwhelming to come up with the perfect proposal. Luckily, we’re here to take the stress out of your special day with a few pointers.

1. Make it memorable. The holidays are an incredibly popular time to get engaged, so you don’t want your proposal to look like everyone else’s. Your Facebook feed will be full of proposal stories - make yours stand out! Tie your proposal to a special activity you enjoy doing together. If you plan to decorate a tree, why not slip the ring onto an ornament? Whether you want to keep the ring in plain sight by tying it to the hanging ribbon or you like the element of surprise in putting the ring inside an ornament, this proposal is romantic and can easily be customized for each couple.

Not tree decorators? Put the ring on a dessert or drop it into New Year’s champagne for a 2017 you’ll never forget! It's an engagement as sweet as they come.

2. Ask for advice - but not too much. Feel free to gather all the information you can by subtly asking around. Your soon-to-be betrothed’s best friend, sister, or even parents may have insights that will help you plan. No idea if cameras would be welcome at the big moment? Need help steering her to a certain place at a certain time? All you have to do is ask!

 Be careful not to tell too many people of your plans, though - loose lips sink ships, after all, and it just takes one overly excited aunt to spill the beans!

 3. Go to Dickinson’s!  We’ve got everything you need to make your proposal a success. We have tons of rings in stock, but here’s what puts us a notch above the rest: our staff. Our salespeople are so knowledgeable that they’ll be able to help you find the perfect ring in no time. Whether you’re interested in a custom creation, seeking that perfect diamond, or looking for a more unconventional ring, we have what you need with the friendliest service around.

Our jewelry is designed to make memories that will last a lifetime. This bride loved her Kathryn diamond - a Dickinson exclusive - so much that she showed it off all the way in Ireland!


Stressed about size? We can check the size of any ring you bring into the store. Don’t tie string around a finger if you can’t get your hands on a ring - send your sweetie into the store to fill out a Christmas wish list, and we’ll get the exact size for you. They’ll never guess that one of the rings they’re dreaming about will make a very special reappearance sometime soon.

If you're ready to pop the question, don't forget to pop into Dickinsons Jewelers first! Whether you head to our Dunkirk or our Prince Frederick location, we are ready to help you find the engagement ring of your dreams.
