I’d probably go with giving it to him after he proposes to you and you have the ring and you get home and everything. I wanted to get a watch too but we decided on me getting him a pet a few months down the road once we’re engaged as a present to him. Obviously from a shelter, and only if we have a living situation that allows that to happen. =)

I agree, give it to him after he proposes and you’re home.  I also bought then Fiance a nice watch as his “she said yes” gift.  🙂

I would give him the gift after the proposal when you guys are at home.

If he is trying to make the proposal a big surprise I would wait until a bit after he proposes to give it to him, otherwise he might be disappointed that you were expecting it.

I would never give a man an engagement gift- but that’s just my opinion. I would give him the watch as your wedding present to him bc that would be really special. But you can give it to him whenever you want, though I think carrying it around in case he proposes may be awkward.  Ps very thoughtful and sweet gift 🙂

I bought my Fiance a set of cufflinks since he loves them. The set I bought were made from six pences made from 1970 which is my fiance’s birth year and the last year these coins were minted. Since the 1970 ones were never circulated they are also fairly rare :).

I never thought of this, I think it’s a cute idea.

I’d definitely wait until after though; after the engagement is official, so you can bask in that glow for a bit.

@Bunny82:  Don’t let anyone talk you out of it. Only you know your relationship and fiance. (I gave mine t-shirt with my face on it!! lol) I say give him the watch!
