I’m in a similar situation — I’m a full-time student with a part-time job, and he’s employed full-time, so our 50-50ish breakdown of expenses over the past 8 years has now shifted to like 90-10.  I feel bad, but at the same time, it doesn’t really make sense to have it happen any other way, and it’s all virtually a wash in the end since we’re combining accounts when we get married.

I guess my advice to you would be look into some sort of “experience” that you could gift him that he may not even know exists… if he loves cars, get him the opportunity to do some laps in a NASCAR car, or if he has a favorite team, surprise him with tickets to an upcoming game.  He may not want any THING that is expensive, but he may still be pining after an EVENT or EXPERIENCE that has a decent price tag to go with it to help alleviate your price tag guilt.  Good luck!
