My bf was going to propose this year

My bf told me he was going to surprise me by proposing to me on dec 31st when it starts counting down towards the New Year with both sides of our family there. I think it’s the most adorable thing idea ever. He said he wouldn’t be able to do it this year but maybe next year. He said send him idea of the type of ring I like. I told him whenever he decides to do it just have a pack of Kleenex in his pocket.
