My fiance is always talking about wanting a ring!  I would love, love, love to be able to buy him a nice watch because he is always looking at them and telling me which ones he likes (and I will try very hard to afford one as a wedding gift for him).  I may end up buying him a simple sterling silver band because he wishes he had one during our (very long) engagement.  I think boys get jealous that girls get to wear something signifying their engagement, and they just have to wait!  I vote for a ring, just maybe not the wedding band, so that he has something to look forward to!

Honestly, I think you should enjoy the special night and get him a watch (a less expensive one) for his wedding gift.

Trust me, when he puts that ring on your finger, it definitely won’t be a night all about you. It will be about both of you. You will feel so happy and so close as a couple. I never would have anticipated how close my FI and I felt on that night. I would just pick up some lingerie as you suggested, and enjoy the special time together. Then, save up each month until your wedding to purchase the watch for him! 😀

I bought my FH an inexpensive ring. He wanted an engagement gift and was apprehensive about wearing a wedding band bc he’s not used to it. I bought him a $40 silver-colored band from Wal-Mart and gave it to him on our one year of being engaged, I think it was titanium. I was worried he wouldn’t wear it much, but he really likes his pre-wedding band and says its good practice. He wears it on his right hand.

We bought him an inexpesive titanium ring.  It’s really cool, but we won’t shed tears if he’s not wearing it after the wedding.  It was really important for him to have something on his left 4th finger as well during our long (15 month) engagement.  When we get married, he’ll either move it to his right hand or wear it only when his wedding ring might get damaged: working with his hands, traveling.

Hopefully that helps.

Sounds very sweet.  I’m sure he’s going to love it, since you’ve been so very thoughtful about it!

I ordered a set of matching "engagement bands" for both of us – I get a diamond ring too, but I wanted to have something that we both had to connect us as a couple, and I want him to wear a ring, at least some of the time, partly to get used to it and partly because I shouldn’t have to wear a ring that says I’m off the market if he doesn’t.  I ordered this set from Etsy and am excited – it was pretty cheap, and the fact that they are wooden means that they will not be suitable for lifetime use but will probably last until the wedding.  I will wear mine on my right hand.  They will also be good for traveling if we don’t want to take our expensive rings with us. 

When they come in, I hope they will soon, I will post and let you know how they turn out.
