Oy I hope he really is proposing because if not you will be pretty disappointed. Don’t get your hopes up unless you really know he will!

Why not get black ops for him? Every gift doesn’t necessarily have to do with the two of you does it?

If you really wanted to give him something that has to do with the two of you since you are sure he will be proposing then I think the blanket would be a nice gift for christmas and you can get him something a little less extravagant for v-day.

I know how you feel! We’re getting engaged over Christmas, and he just got me a new iPod Touch for Christmas, so I’ve felt lost as to what to get him. He’s been graduated for years and has a good job, while I am still a student, so financially we’ve always been lopsided anyway.

Anyway, I know men like gifts that are practical, and really, they aren’t bad gifts at all! It shows that you listen to him and know what he needs/wants. That in itself makes it personal.

You could always get him the game, or the projector screen, plus something smaller and more meaningful. A framed picture of you two with a note, some crafty jar of memories, some sort of presentation of the things you love about him, etc.

Could you pair the projector screen with something personal? Like maybe a DVD of pictures of both of you since you started dating, or something?

How about a jar full of love notes- one for each day you are gone? That is cheap, but super thoughtful because it is a lot of effort. Can’t wait tohear about the proposal!

I got things that I want him to have, proposal or not, together or not. It was SO much easier to think of things that way. =) I think the projector idea is cool, and now you have incentive to take pictures, yay!
