Engagement gift for fiance

Recommended Posts

Soooo...does everyone get an engagement gift for their fiance? If you do, how soon are you supposed to get it and how much do you typically spend? I was surprised by the proposal so I obviously wasn't saving money for it and I don't want to have to charge it if I don't have to.

Neither my brother, sister nor any of my friends are married so I don't really know how this works.

Any help?

Haven't really ever heard of this, although I know of many guys who wish they could wear their wedding band early. I presume if he'd like something, get him one. :-)

 

But what about after the wedding? Will he wear it then as well?

I think it's a fun idea to get something for the FI. Since I was so excited about my diamond, I wanted to get him a gift too :) So, I got him a Wii! He's been wanting one but didn't get it b/c he was spending money on the ring, the puppy, wedding, etc. I put it in a big box, so when he came home it was the first thing he saw. I think anything thoughtful would mean a lot!

lol ... just reread this and saw I had a huge brain far with my first response, lol. I don't know why I thought you wrote engagement "ring." wtf.giffryingpan.gif

 

Anyway, I didn't get him a gift. But he left for Iraq a week after we got engaged and I had a surprise going away party for him, which we ended up using to announce our engagement, so maybe that counts...

hhhmmm - maybe it's a regional thing - most everyone i know does get an engagement gift for their FI. I got mine a watch with diamonds on the face - i know a bit over the top but i got a good deal on it!

 

i say get him something, even if it's just writing him a love letter telling him why you are excited to become his wife! it's not about the $ but the guys deserve a little something - the women get almost all the attention during the engagement!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
