I didn’t know engagement gifts were a thing.

My Fiance and I had spoken about him getting an engagement ring so I bought him one while I was waiting for mine. When he proposed I gave him the ring as well. 

I don’t know if there is a norm. Amongst our friends most of the guys didn’t get anything from the FIs after proposing.

I got my Fiance an engagement gift – I felt like giving him something he could have/wear since getting engaged was a special experience for him as well. I got him a dog tag (picture below from our e-pics) and the back is engraved with the date we got engaged “August 10th 2014”

I previously got him a dog tag with “I Love you” on it one Valentines Day so he can wear the two together which I think is nice 🙂 Personally I love the idea of giving your SO something in celebration of your engagement. While I don’t think it is a must I know my Fiance really loved the thought and he wears it everyday 🙂

His gift is that he gets to marry me.

yogahhh:  I got my Fiance a watch. He’s a huge watch nut and he deserved a “big boy” engagement watch.

I brought my fiancé an octopus engagement ring.

I offered a ring or a gift of his choice. He wanted an engagement pistol since he’s a gun enthusiast. We also had it engraved, so it’s extra special.

I bought my fiance an iPad. He’d been wanting one for a while but he couldn’t buy it because he had to save for my ring! I figured it was the least I could do- and I still only spent a fraction of what he did.

I got my Fiance a watch – it was a fancy watch that he can wear out. I had the back engraved with the date he proposed and the word “yes!”.

I think it totally depends on the couple.I wanted to do something for Fiance as well. He had been wanting a very expensive RC car, so I got that for him. So he got an engagement toy! Lol.

We are newly engaged and I wanted to surprise my Fiance with something special on the morning of our engagement party. So far I am hoping to get him a signed jersey from his favourite sports team but this thread is full of good ideas!
