    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?

        Ive never heard of doing an engagement gift. I would do a wedding gift though.

          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."

                    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!
