I have been a long-time lurker of the weddingbee boards, particularly the waiting boards as I myself am waiting and have loved listening to everyone speak about their waiting situations. I’m happy to finally join!
I am very excited for the gift I got from my boyfriend for Christmas- a hope chest! He’s not the most sentimental/romantic guy, so this was a very sweet and thoughtful gift!
On our way to my aunt’s for Christmas, he also said that we would have to start looking for rings soon because he knows I am so picky (I am, already have the ring mostly picked out, hehe). I did a little happy dance in my brain!
Anyone else get a hope chest or other pre-engagement gift?

That is very thoughtful 🙂
My boy most likely has no idea what a hope chest is haha. But hopefully this means the ring is coming very soon for you!!

I think anyone on board with that kind of gift is ready to start picking out shiny ones – good luck and welcome 🙂

My mom gave me my great grandmother’s hope chest when we were “betrothed” during college but not official yet…

For Valentine’s Day my bf gave me a jewlery box as a present and told me we would be needing to fill it up. Months later for my bday he gave my a three stone diamond necklace, and now he says all that is missing is the shiny round something 🙂

Congrats and welcome! We didn’t really do much like that, as we’re not “gifty” type of people. But for you two it sounds perfect!
