- Wedding: October 2013
2012 is the year we will be getting engaged, I don’t know when exactly but know for a fact that it’s this year.
When we were getting my watch fixed couple months ago, SO showed me the watch he really likes. I am paying off my debt right now and such presents are really out of the question and he knows that. (Watch is about 800$)
This year I haven’t taken much vacation and am not planning to take any for the rest of the year. He is taking a week off next week because his kids are out of school till September and he was asking me if I would like to go on some day trips with them and take time off, I said no that I have to work.
The reason why I am doing this is because if I don’t use my vacation time I can request it to be paid out to me and by December it will be over 2,000. So this way I can really surprise him with this watch that i know he will love, leave some money in there just in case we go on vacation early next year and continue paying off my debt like normal.
Now question is do I get it earlier and give it to him around the same time he proposes or do I just make it a Christmas present ?
Are we suppose to give the men a gift as well when they propose or shortly after ?
