I haven’t gotten him one, although it doesn’t sound like a bad idea. He made a big deal out of the fact that men don’t get engagement rings, so I almost bought him a right hand ring for our engagement.

I jokingly told my BF that I would get him an engagement boat when he got me an engagement ring.  Of course I didn’t have money for a boat, so I got him a Christmas ornament of a boat a few weeks after we got engaged, and had it personalized to say, “T’s Engagement Boat”.  He didn’t think it was as funny as I did…and a few months later I gave him some $$ towards a little, cheap used boat he found.

A really cute idea, for sure!  We talked a little bit about this, but then Mr. Bru (jokingly) said he didn’t need an engagement gift as long as he gets a Rolex “wedding watch.”  Haha, maybe for the 10-year anniversary…  🙂

I did!  I bought my FI a new lens he wanted for his camera.

Hmm…I always thought I would buy him something nice, but if it happens soon then probably not.  He just bought a house and I splurged and got him a Wii as a housewarming gift.  I’m kind of tapped out in the gift department for a little bit.

I bought Mr. Paris a beautiful watch from my company for our engagement.  He loves it, but now he won’t get a big price tag gift for the wedding, something small and sentimental.

I would have loved to buy him a watch for an engagement gift, but I hadn’t started my job yet. I will get him a really nice one for Christmas tho

Not really traditional or elegant…but my FI is getting a Playstation 3. Hey, it’s what he really wanted and I know he’ll use it. Plus, they just lowered the price!

I got my fiance a Wii for our engagement.  I figured it was the least I could do after he spent thousands on me!

I did! I bought him an Xbox 360 and a year of Xbox Live. He was really, really excited. He always says that his “engagement ring” is way bigger than mine. :p

@ fiftyfoot- LOL that’s hilarious!

I didn’t get Mr. F anything because I’m going all out for his pre-wedding gifts!

We got engaged on our 1 yr dating anniversary. I had gotten him a Wii and a gaming shopping spree anyway.

That’s funny- I just got my fiance a PSP!  He was so surprised, and I know he loves it so much more than he would have liked a watch.  I’ll get him a nice watch in a few years…
