@gonzos2007:  Getting mine a watch as well. And an “engagement” flat screen if the budget allows for it.

I got my Fiance a really nice computer monitor (essentially a flat screen TV) for his gaming hobby, some new computer parts and I am considering getting him a nice pin stripe suit (as I won’t let him wear one to the wedding but he really wants one). All of this will come “under” the cost of my e-ring and I would have preferred to get him a nice watch BUT he wanted the computer stuff ๐Ÿ˜› and I thought he deserved to get something he really wanted. 


He really doesn’t like wearing watches or jewelry ๐Ÿ™‚

My SO would want a tv, computer parts, or a new guitar. I would probably get him the guitar with our engagement date engraved in tiny print on the back.

I got my SO an “engagment suit” haha. He was adorably excited about suit shopping (male equivalent of ring shopping?). And he has several upcoming occasions on which to wear it… most notably, our wedding ๐Ÿ˜‰

@maladroite: looks like we were on the same page!

@likelimeade:  engagement kayak– I love it! For awhile, I petitioned SO for an engagement piano… alas, it was to no avail.

Might sound a little unromantic given the occassion, but Im planning on buying him his favourite gun that he has wanted for years but could never justify buying for himself. He really doesnt like watches, he saw a ring he liked but prefered it as a wedding ring not engagement, and Ive also bought him a nice simple chain to wear around his neck. I know a gun might sound silly, but I know he would love it and it would mean alot to him ๐Ÿ™‚ If i could get it engraved I would, but I dont think I can unfortunately! x
