    I didn’t get Fiance a gift because he told me not to.  We are paying for a big chunk of the wedding, and he wanted me to save my money for that purpose.  Fine with me!

    @laughs:I don’t know if I will get SO an engagement gift. I really hadn’t thought of that being a thing. I mean, the proposal will be a surprise so I won’t know when to have it ready and my SO legitimately does not like “things”. I sort of thought that saying yes and being a good fiance was his “engagement gift” since he does the proposing. I mean, it seems strange that someone presenting you with a ring and saying “would you do me the honor of being my wife?” would expect a gift…I’m gonna be your wife and that should be thrilling enough lol. There are other occasions for giving gifts.

     

     

     

    That said,I do want to give SO a gift a little while after we become engaged just to show I love and appreciate him and I am excited to spend the rest of our lives together. Now that this concept has been brought up, I just had an idea to maybe make some sort of nice looking display of memories of our years together so far…like certain movie stubs and pictures and such so we can display it and have it to look at when we move somewhere together. Or boudoir photos hehe I’m sure that’d be a hit. But I will be giving them as a gift on my own and not simply because I should have to save up too just because he had to save for a ring.

    ETA: I don’t know why or how part of this text re sized itself when I spaced the paragraphs and I don’t know how to fix it haha sorry!

    I got my fiancee a good-quality acoustic guitar.  Something that he’d use and remember and (hopefully) keep for a long time.

    I did a budouir photoshoot in November 2012 in hopes that I would be getting my proposal soon.  I chose a number of pictures and made a sexy book for him.  I finished it on Christmas Eve and he proposed on Christmas Day! Talk about a close call! He was so surprised!

    I got my Fiance a Tissot watch as an engagement gift. He chose the watch himself, just like I chose my rings, and I’m glad he did because he was very particular! It was not as expensive as my rings, although his wedding band will be more expensive than mine so it evens out. Lol we worked out a budget for each other’s engagement/wedding jewellery ahead of time.
