I like the idea of the engagement guitar if you think that’s something he would truly appreciate! It seems like you would want to get him something really special that’s more extravagant than what you would usually get him. I suspect that engagement rings don’t mean as much to guys as they do to girls, in general, but maybe you could offer to get him one if he wants it?

If you’re gonna do it, go the guitar route FOR SURE.

Also, I was in a situation similar to yours (knowing we were going to get married and waiting for awhile before engagement). Anywho, I thought for sure a proposal wasn’t coming because there was just no way he could keep anything from me and then all of a sudden, he was proposing. So, he MIGHT still do it. However, if he thinks it’s cool for the girl to propose then I’d go full steam ahead with the guitar idea and make a cute engagement story.

Let us know how it goes!

I know what I would do with all of these special dates coming up! First, I would go with a ring for him…I would have it in safekeeping and given the possibility that he may very well propose, I might potentially wait to see if he makes any kind of move first…BUT…right as soon as the 5 year mark was up, I’d propose…you warned him lol. I would go for the guitar as a Christmas present…or maybe his birthday?

@masqueradestars:  Hmmm…you’ve caught my attention…and my FI’s. Perhaps the ring doesn’t need to be a surprise? Perhaps it should be something you do together to make sure that the ring that you choose is something that he actually likes and feels comfortable wearing? That’s what we did…I looked, checked “NO WAY”, looked, checked “NO WAY” again, until I found the styles he liked. It was rather fun and could be done before any engagement as a way to open up communication. I am of the mind that both of you should already be ready and willing to be engaged before you actually get engaged…otherwise, aren’t you truly putting the other person on the spot??

I proposed with a ring. He loved it, it was just too big. now we are hunting to find him the perfect ring that fits. He is actually really exited for the ring, and cant wait to tell people how i proposed when they ask. i kove the guitar idea though. Especially if he doesnt want to wear an engagement ring. Good luck! I am so exited fir you. Keep us posted 🙂
