The only issue with the 18 month thing is that he may feel put on the spot if you say it is an anni thing. I would give it to him as a just beacuse thing, those are the best ones anyways… they are unexpected and there isn’t a feeling of dread if there isn’t a gift in return. If you don’t want to do a just because kind of thing then I would wait until december. By the time it is made and recieved it will be a lot closer anyways. I just wouldn’t put emphasis on the anni if you don’t normally celebrate months

So… I have totally been here before. I got SO a meaningful ring for our 1 year anniversary. (We had to be long distance for a while and he gave me the ring he wore everyday to hold on to while he was away. I got him a new ring with “friendship, loyalty, love” engraved on the inside in Irish.) And I made the mistake of ordering it a whole month earlier than I intended to give it to him. So my advice: Do NOT order the ring until you are ready to give it to him it will drive you a little crazy holding on to it.

It also might be most meaningful to you to give it to him on the anniversary of the day you knew he was your other half (Of course I have no idea when that is so this might be a useless suggestion). But I agree with PP 18 months is kind of a strange date to give a gift on.  But a random date may work too. “Hey love I got you something because you’re always on my mind” sort of thing. And I wouldn’t suggest waiting to give it to him for his birthday either. Your gift is romantic and birthdays are… not generally speaking.
