That's awesome!!

We didn't do engagement gifts, or wedding gifts for that matter (I mean, not many material things can top undying love and devotion, right? lol).

Don't do it because you think you are supposed to, but if you want to do it go for it and make it meaningful. And like Alyssa said it doesn't have to be about the $$ :)

i didn't get joe anything for an engagement present. i've never known anyone who has either. it must be a regional thing.

 

kinda like duck duck gray duck is SO a midwestern thing

I didn't really get him a gift...but I decided to book a Christmas/New years cruise for us! So it is something fun we will do together and it is kind of to celebrate our engagement. (So it is cheating because I get to enjoy it too!)

 

It seems like wedding gifts are perhaps more popular though. I am actually not sure I am going to do that but instead since he is away at school I am going to splurge on a graduation gift. (He graduates a few months before we get married so I am hoping the gift is sort of for both!!!)

 

I think the wii idea is cool though!

I ended up giving him something at our engagement party. However it doesn't have to be a lot of money. Just something sentimental.

My FI is a HUG sports fan and we both love the Mets. They are building a new stadium and they have a 'fan walk' where all the bricks are etched with fan names/sayings etc... I thought it was kind of sweet because in the card I wrote; I hope that in 30, 40, 50 years our children and grand children can go to the stadium and see our brick placed there. Kind of a permanent stone placed in a place he loves. It had our names (which was weired because it had me with his last name) and our wedding date.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
