    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.
