So for us bees who are still waiting, what did you get for Christmas from your SO? What did you get him?
My SO got me a jewelry set of our son’s birthstone- earrings, necklace and a ring, 2 pairs of leggings, a new pair of sneakers, a Beyonce Heat gift set, a Guess watch and a set of cutlery items (I needed these bad for cooking).
Would have I traded all of these for an e-ring… most definitely but he did get a ring and the meaning behind it took the disappointment away.
I got him a Giants sweater (a big Giants fan), gift cards to his favorite eating spots, paying for his GPS installation, dealer car mats he wanted, Giant scratch offs, an Axe gift set, a new X-box controller and head set, Giant socks, and Altoids packs (his favorite candy).
Here is a picture of my ring. He caught me staring at it while everyone else was opening gifts and he said “Don’t worry, patient” (ha, yeah right), then later we spoke on it again and he said that he had been thinking about it, he had a great day with me and he was happy so not to worry, the engagement is on his mind too. I won’t be getting a ring for NYE but I am hoping for V-Day since he will have the money to buy the ring we picked out then.

Your Christmas ring is beautiful! Sounds like you got a lot of nice gifts 🙂 Hope you get what you want for Valentines Day too!
We decided on a $100 limit plus stockings this year. I got him a portable bbq and some shirts, plus his stocking stuff (Wii game, boxers, body wash stuff, camping accessories, gift card…). He got me a really cute pair of black boots (my sister helped him shop) plus stocking stuff (book, gift card, DVD, CD’s, candy…)
It was a good Christmas!

I got him a pin from Disney World, a University of Pittsburgh T-shirt, a DVD and a Pirates jersey (which got lost in the mail somehow and no one knows where it is and the ebay seller isn’t going to do anything about it because the tracking status says delivered. It wasn’t. Ho ho humbug.)
He got me Tim Gunn’s new book, a Harry Potter lego set and a board game, and a figurine of my favorite wrestler. Helllloooo nerd-dom!
He got me Harry Potter chess for Channukah and I got him 2 calendars (sounds lame, but he loves them. One is his current favorite cartoon and the other is his 2 favorite Pixar movies.)

He got me a Mother of Pearl necklace with matching earrings. I got him a gas powered remote control car. Love your ring and the special meaning behind it!

I got an iPad, clothes, bath stuff, and get this…biscotti. I don’t get that one, but oh well. He was a real sweetie and we had fun. It was our first christmas together actually being together on christmas…he’s gone up to his family’s the first two years. They threw a little “hissy fit” but that’s another story. Saying “we have to be together every christmas and if you can’t come here, we’re coming there.” I wanted to SCREAM.
This is going to be a problem…
but I digress – he cooked the meal for my family, took good care of me, filled my car up with gas. he was a completely wonderful SO at christmas. But no ring.
oh well – I don’t think I ever want to get my hopes up again. So that’s my new mantra. No hopes…..

I got some clothes, earrings and money. My SO got me a Kindle which I’ve been talking about forever it truly was a surprise. I got SO these shoes that were sold out and he loved them. Maybe next x-mas I’ll get a ring he has the money I guess we’ll see.

He got me an iPad, complete book of fairytales, chocolates, and a non-engagement ring. I got him a nice watch that he never wears, and took him to see the Mel Brooks Young Frankenstein musical earlier this month.
