5 Things to do When He is About to Propose

Some proposals are a surprise, while others can be seen a mile off. If you think he's preparing for a Christmas or New Year proposal then you might want to prepare for it.

If you suspect that he is about to pop the question then there are a few small things you can do to prepare, and luckily they won't give the game away!

Get a manicure

Nobody will suspect that you're expecting a proposal with a pre-Christmas trip to the nail salon. But when he slips that ring on your finger you want your pinkies looking as good as the ring. Whether you go professional or DIY, a neutral colour will help show off the ring in all it's glory. Then your hand will be ready for its Instagram moment.

Choose an outfit

You might have your Christmas outfit chosen out, but if you don't then this is the perfect reason to go out and buy a new outfit. If the proposal is happening in front of friends and family you can expect lots of photographs and even video, so you will want to look your bests you can enjoy the photos for the rest of your life

Free up some memory

Buy some champagne
