I personally got a ring and love it.  BUT, I can totally see wanting something more practical or involved in your everyday life…  OR just something more “you.”  The 50yr savings bond idea is cute.  The long term bonds have greater risk, however, so idk.  And what if he died or something before 50 years?  I know, morbid, but I’m writing as I think..Lol.  Still, very creative and possibly quite worth the risk 🙂

Engagement watch? Lighter? Sunglasses? I think you can propose with pretty much anything so long as it has meaning between the two of you. Personally I wanted a ring and got a ring and it meant a lot to FH for it to be a ring so I’m happy with it 🙂

My ex was engaged before we started dating. His ex wanted a pistol as an engagement present, so that’s what she got.

For one of Elizabeth Taylor’s engagements she got a beautiful emerald broach! Read up on that. And she’s the QUEEN of diamonds!
