Some of our joint christmas presents ( for SO and I) seem to be along a similar theme… We received a fully kitted out picnic hamper complete with champagne cooler and built in sound system, another smaller picnic hamper, a winter picnic blanket, some pretty winter storm candle lanterns.
The above doesn’t seem like much until you read my post… number 28 of this link…http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/waiting-bees-whats-your-dream-proposal
He’s also started looking at the weather forecasts for snow in the UK, and on Christmas eve, told one of my friends to distract me, as he was discussing his proposal plans with some of his guy friends, to see what they thought…
It seems as though everyone is already in on it – such a shock as my SO is not one of the most romantic/surprising people, and it now means that the cogs are really turning!
Anyone else have any unusual presents/conversations this Christmas that made you think twice?

This is really exciting. Keep us updated. I’ve had a few positive conversations over the Christmas period but nothing that makes me believe it’s iminent.
P.S I fear it’ll be too warm for snow for a while yet 🙁 perhaps in the upcoming months?

No ring at the moment but SO and I actually looked at rings and I showed him one from Blue Nile and he was very interested in looking and asking how you’d wear a band with it and if it’s something I’d wear everyday….

@ladyartichoke – I agree about the snow thing but a girl can dream eh?!

That’s so exciting! An unusual gift is what tipped me off to my proposal – my now-husband was with me when I found a BCBG dress I loooooooved. I walked away from it saying it was too expensive, and he bought it for me saying it would be perfect for a photo session we were having at the beach. Umm, he had never cared about clothes OR pictures before so I knew something was up 🙂 Sounds very very promising!!!
