@Creiddylad:  I didn’t give him an engagement gift, but I’ll be surprising him with a wedding gift!

I’m giving him $500 towards getting a computer screen he can illustrate on……I’m sure theres a name for it, and I’m sure he’s told me 100 times, but i’m not a computer person, so i always forget.

We went the traditional route (something long lasting and substantial that could become a family heirloom… such as jewellery) and we exchanged “Wedding Watches” in the hours before our Ceremony.

We both LOVE & treasure them

Hope this helps,

A man-gagement ring 🙂

ETA: Does you guy wear cufflinks to work ever? That could be a nice gift if so. Men do appreciate wallets very much (if they’re the right wallet for them), but they don’t last forever. That may or may not be a concern for you.

OH! Some guys are into money clips. These have the longevity factor because they are like jewelry, made of metal and maybe gems. But then again, not everyone uses money clips (for example FI and I find them odd for some reason. He actuallly has 2 money clips but never uses them. I never even had one myself, as I never saw a need).

@Creiddylad:  Haha.  Super busy at work here. 😉

I’m sure someone got their FI an engagement gift.

@This Time Round:  That’s what I got FI for his wedding gift.  🙂  I got excited and pulled the trigger on it last month.  It’s super neat, and pretty fancy; I hope he loves it!

@Creiddylad:  Yep of course! I bought him a watch. I told him to pick out what he wanted and I sent him some suggestions of things I thought he would like.  THe one I really wanted for him he originally said he didn’t like. THen, he tried it on at the store and loved it, so that’s what he got!  I know him better then he does! 😉

To @Creiddylad:  oops sorry, I misread… I could have swore the title of this post was for Wedding Presents between the Bride & Groom

E-Gifts are similar but different.

They can be a substantial gift like a W-Gift =OR= they can anything that you think would make your Man happy

As other Bees have noted, a lot of Women give Men ERings now.

Once he proposes, we’re getting our puppy, so I told him that would be his engagement present from me.
