I was wondering, have any of you bought an engagement gift for your FI? Something for him to be excited about, show off, etc., since he’s buying your engagement ring? I know some people get man-gagement rings, but that’s not his style.
I’ve been playing around with this idea a lot but can’t think of something quite right. What did you guys do?

rachacha: I got my FI a watch. He’s really into watches and really wanted this one…

I got my husband an iMac. It tripled as an anniversary and birthday present since they were all around the same time

I asked FI what he wanted as an engagement gift since he got me an e-ring. He’s a gun enthusiast, so he requested a pistol, which we had engraved with our names and a love quote. The gift fits him so well!

I also got him a watch. He originally said he wanted to wear a ring also for our engagement, but then changed his mind. He likes having a nice watch, but didn’t have a good one, and I wanted something he could show off and that might make him feel as fancy as my ring does for me.

Once we got engaged, I really wanted to give FI something too, not as a momento, more I guess a thankyou for going to all the work that you did. Neither of us are into engagement rings for guys. They just look like wedding bands to me which I think is a bit weird to wear when you aren’t married yet (no offence to people who do it!) I tossed up buying a new rifle for him, but didn’t really have the cash to get him one he would like, so I ended up buying him some goggles for when he goes quad riding (lots) which have a camera in them. I was originally looking at a GoPro but these were cheaper, had a better quality camera and are more protected then something on the handlebars (he crashes lots lol) I wrapped them up and gave them to him, he didn’t even know he was getting something and he LOVED them.
I will save the momentos for the wedding and anniversarys 🙂

I bought my now husband a ’48 GMC truck as an engagement gift. We then took our engagement pics with it!

- Wedding: April 2016 - The Admiral Kidd Club
I got him a new 8″ Galaxy Tab 4 that doubled as both a 7-year anniversary gift to him and also a “thanks for the gorgeous bling and asking me to marry you” gift.

Since he worked so hard to plan a surprise for me and I wanted him to relax after it all, I took him to a spa for a massage! He loved it!

I bought my FI a jersey for his fav football team/player. Extra special since that players # is the same as the date he proposed!

Mine collects comic books, so I got him a pricey Spiderman comic he was looking to add to his collection someday. He said I didn’t need to get him anything, but I wanted to do something nice for him when we got engaged.
