I am a waiting Bee and decided that while I wait I will try to come up with an engagement gift for my future Fiance. Did anyone here buy an engagement gift for their partner? If so, what did you choose? I want it to be a surprise and I sort of want to have it before we get engaged so that I can give it to him after he proposes, although I’m not sure when he will propose so it may be sooner than I expect! I had the idea of some nice cufflinks that I will get personalised with a saying that we both love but I’m finding it hard to pull the trigger on them in case there is something even better that I haven’t thought of yet.

Is he a watch guy? I’ve heard of women getting a nice watch before as a gift for their fiancé.

My husband wanted a new graphics card for his computer… So that’s what he got ahah! Not a surprise and not a typical gift.

alybe : This is a little riske and it would totally depend on your comfort level and the dynamic of your relationship but I am planning to do a boudoir photoshoot for my SO as an engagement gift, put together nicely in a little album. I’m not very comfortable with my body and I’m pretty shy/don’t like taking pictures but my SO loves my body and finds me very sexy and I know this would be a huge legitamate surprise, very different than anything he would expect, and I would love to surprise him and catch him offguard with something he would love. If you want to get him a gift you can tell people about then mayyyybe not this.
I feel like it’s creative, unique, and would be something he would definitely like to have. Just an idea!

lauraspencer : Just to be clear a boudoir shoot would be done by a professional so it would definitely look good, and you get to chose what you wear and how much nudity you do (if any) so you can stay in your comfort zone.

Thank you all for your advice!
He doesn’t really wear watches due to a wrist injury but I bought him a pocket watch for Christmas so I was going to try to avoid the watch route. He does likecomputers and gaming so maybe I can have a look at something to do with that but I am a little useless when it comes to computers!
I’d never even considered a photo shoot! I’m going to have to look that one up!

I have been thinking about this too! Came across the watch idea, but I bought that for a signifcant birthday already. My best idea so far is to buy him a really nice bottle of Whiskey. He enjoys it but would never spend this kind of money on a bottle for himslef. I like the idea of him having a glass everytime we reach a milestone in our relatinship. Good luck with your gift.

Would you consider a ring? that’s what I’m doing, it’ll either be a rhr or left hand different finger.

I’m not engaged yet, but I’m planning to buy him a roof rack for his car. His last car had one but he didn’t/doesn’t have the money to get one for this car, and I know he wants it.
Now he’s just got to work on that 💍…!

I would save the watch (or something along those lines) for a wedding gift; cuff links sound good!

No idea, but I got my husband a real German cuckoo clock. Modern design though; black and white, sober.
We met in Germany (alsthouhh i am not German) and the running joke was that you either bring home a cuckoo clock or a wife. So he got both. (Well, he „brought home“ a fiancé but same difference really)

I got my husband a watch of similar value to my ring. He collects them so it worked out great.
Does your guy wear cuff links? My husband wears a suit or semi formal outfit for work almost daily and never wears cuff links, I think he only has like two shirts that even allow for them. It would basically be a gift he’d wear at the wedding and possibly no other time, so I’d caution you to consider that.
