You all know the question is coming soon from you SO – how are YOU going to respond?
Personally, I’m trying to do the shut-it-up strategy so I don’t want to say that I want a ring. I was thinking of just saying that all I want for Christmas is him…in a bow! LOL. Of course then I run the risk of getting a blender since I didn’t tell him anything else that I might want. I’d love to hear what other Bees are planning on saying to their SO’s…..

I always said, “Well, you know what I really want…but if that’s not going to happen, I like…” and I would name something.

I was thinking about writing a similar thread just now SO and I talked about Christmas 5 minutes ago. He said he is not getting me an e-ring for Christmas bc he doesn’t have enough money yet. I said that’s the only thing I want so I would prefer he put more money into saving for a ring instead of getting me a Christmas present. He said I had a bad attitude about it and he still wants to get me Christmas presents. So I suggest NOT doing what I did. I should have read this thread before that talk. I like the “you know what I REALLY want, but if not that then…” response. MUCH better!

@HeartsandSparkles: Oh yeah that is the tough part. If I don’t get a ring I don’t want him to splurge on anything else and set the proposal back any farther. I guess if I do suggest potential gifts I’ll make sure it is reasonably priced.

@peachacid: I said that and he goes how do you know? And I said “because you know I don’t want a cliche holiday or birthday proposal…..” lol

We planned on getting engaged by Christmas, so I told my husband all I wanted was an engagement ring. I figured that would probably take up his alotted Christmas for me and then some 🙂

@MsMamaBear: I said the same thing. I seriously can’t think of anything else I would want.
I suggested stopping into a jewelry store we were walking past at the mall the other day. He laughed at me and said not happening.
Last night he had a heart to heart with my best friend and after their private chat he told me it was about proposing, but he wouldn’t tell me anything else. So confused.
