I also found the “she gets a gift, he gets a bill” thing to be rather silly so I ended up buying him a new watch and a paintball gun he had his eye on.We are both gifty people and tend to buy each other gifts a lot though (he got me a pair of emerald earrings the same day he gave me my ring).

 

He enjoys showing everyone his shiny engagement presents. haha

I always felt bad for the guy, especially since I watched Fiance save all those years for my ring, so I’d planned to get him the watch of his dreams. He was soooo surprised when I gave it to him (boys are oblivious) and I’d actually dragged him into the watch store on a couple of occasions and actually said “i’m getting you this watch do you like it?” to which i got the real answer of “no, this is the one i like” hahahaha =D yet he still had no clue….

I don’t consider us to be a “traditional” couple as far as traditional gender roles go, but I didn’t feel the need to buy him a e-gift.  It might have been different though if I was actually working instead of in school and had more money to spend though.  Also he never seems to want anything, it’s very frustrating to shop for birthdays and Christmas already.

I did this for my FI! I made him a very nice scrapbook with a handwritten story of how we fell in love, starting from the moment we met, until the moment he proposed. I filled it with pictures of us that I had printed mostly in sepia to give it a warmer feel. He LOVED it so much it made him cry. It was very sweet 🙂

My Fiance and I got engaged in February and I never bought him anything. Then his PS3 broke right before the new Madden game came out. Yes, I realize he is a 25 year old child but him playing Madden is a huge stress reliever for him. So I went outand bought a brand new PS3 with the new Madden game and I told him that was his engagement present. He loved it, even if it was 6 months late!

Mr. LK got an engagement ring just like I did. We both wear them as a symbol of our commitment. I dunno. It just felt right for us.

He asked me to marry him without a ring, wanting me to choose the ring so I would love to wear it always.

We designed it ourselves & chose the stoneso it took almost 6 weeks to arrive (and we kept the engagement secret).

So I had an engagement gift ready for him when we picked up my e ring: a DeWalt dual bevel compound sliding mitre saw.

He was so surprised and absolutely loves it. He tells people about it if they ask about my ring, so I think it was definitely a good idea.
