    @Doodle411:  So… you’re a gift to him, but he’s not a gift to you?

    I’m getting FI a set of sports team cufflinks ( since I vetoed the sports team colors for the wedding for obvious reasons) and a new bicycle with a big bow. So not too expensive, i just wanted to get him a little something to open on the wedding day And he’s been talking about wanting a bike to get to work with for a while now.

    @Duncan:  Calm down Cujo, It was a joke. I felt no need to get him an engagement gift because the ring was his choice. We had no discussions about it. And while it was a very pleasant surprise, the diamond was not required.

    Well, I contributed a large portion of money towards the ring so I didn’t really think about getting him a gift, but his birthday will likely be around the time of the engagement so it’ll just work out that we are both getting something around that time.

    It’s a long-running joke that SO’s Mum got his Dad a vegetable rack after they got engaged. I’d like to get something equally as amusing! MrWigeon wants a blowtorch for our kitchen and I haven’t let him put it on our ‘essentials’ list for our house, so that could be a good one 😛

    Yes, I totally did this, except I was too excited about his gift and gave it to him before he proposed!! (Lol, he had already bought the ring, so I figured it was okay.)

    I bought him a trip to Colorado for us to visit one of hist best friends from college and to hike a 14er, which has been something he’s wanted to do for years.

    For the day of the wedding, we’re getting each other little small things. The engagement was the big spend-y gift time for us!!

    I hadn’t thought about it, haha. I guess it depends on how much of a surprise the proposal is, like if I know it’s coming then I can arrange something (probably smallish) but if not then it’d be a bit weird to run out and buy him something afterwards. Maybe taking us out for a meal or making food would be enough in that case 🙂
