2. Try to dig it out by yourself.
Another thing you can try to dig out what your girl would like is by smartly talking it out with her. Bringing up the topic indirectly in a random conversation or by giving some other couple's example might make her spill some beans about her wishes. Figuring out if she'd like the proposal to be grand or an intimate one is essential. Just don't go too overboard cuz you might end up giving her hints that you're planning something for her. In fact, she might end up catching hints because well, we women are smart. Period.

3. Chocolates and flowers are mandatory!
There are no two ways about this guys. Even if your girl is not too much of a chocolate and flower person, a bit of them is still mandatory and you got to have them. Or better yet, bring her just a small bouquet and a box of cupcakes or donuts along with (if you don't want to do chocolates!)
