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!

I've never heard of getting an engagement gift before but if you want to get him something I'd say go for it. I'm getting him a wedding gift though.

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!
