@babytoes:  Yes…I opened a savings account for our wedding/house/kids.  It’s a general ‘us’ account. 

Huge thing with my SO is financial planning-he wants to save and pay for everything outright.  He knows that I have an account and I’m saving–I’m hoping that by the time my SO proposes that I will almost have the wedding saved up for/paid for, which is highly likely because it’ll probably be a year or more before he proposes.  When he proposes I plan to tell him how much $ I’ve had saved which I know he will value-but aside from some fancy scotch my SO doesn’t really like presents, he never has.

He’ll get access to our wedding account, fancy scotch, and probably a little of what @Artificial-Sweetener:  suggested too!!  haha!

@babytoes:  I got my fiance an expensive bottle of scotch when we got engaged…. but I knew it was going to happen because we bought the ring together, and decided to take a weekend trip to a hot spring for the proposal…. so I figured it would be nice for one of us to have a surprise that weekend lol

@babytoes:  my DH is a tech guy– I got us both iPad minis. Not my idea for us both to have them–“But who am I going to play electronic Battleship with!?!?!” But I do love my iPad mini lol

I’ll be going the watch route! i think it’s fun for him to have something to wear as an engagement piece! He has always wanted an Omega, i’ve got one on layaway at a jewellery store, i’ll have it paid off by the time i get my ring, and he can have it then!:)

We have actually had this conversation 🙂

He asked for a PS4 as an engagement present to him. He told me it would be a safe bet to just wrap it up and put it under the Christmad tree!!! We’ll see…

I caved and gave SO the PS4 yesterday when I really had purchased it for his mangagement / Christmas Gift! I’m such a loser, but I was just too excited and I couldn’t wait! Oh well at least I know the ring is coming, so I don’t feel too ridiculous 🙂 soo now I guess I need to find him something small to open on Christmas Day lol

I got my fiance an “ipad-gement ring.” I made the box the diamond and used cardboard to make a ring shape around it. I gave it to him a week or so after he proposed when we were on a weekend getaway. I agree – I thought he should get something too, and I knew it would really help him in school.
