    What do i get my bf for engagement?

    Advertisements
    I need your help! I'm not big on this stuff, and i'm also foreign, so i'm not really sure how all this works in the States.
    My bf is going to propose next Christmas and he got me a ring. Now, I'd like to get something for him in exchange. I wouldnt mind him having something i gave to him that he would always wear, like i'll do with the ring. Is there some 'rule' ? What can i get?

    I've never heard of anyone giving an engagement gift. Here, it's just the guy giving the girl the ring.

    Generally guys don't get anything for an engagement... except maybe a blowjob.

    Some people also get the guy an engagement ring that he can wear as a right-hand ring after the wedding. Maybe a watch, if you're not fond of the ring idea?

    I was also thinking of getting my baby an engagement gift.. If he likes necklaces, watches, or even if he has his ears pierced you can go that way..Or you can do something that isnt so formal.. Like get him some his fav brand on sneakers or shirts etc..

    LOL
    dont need engagement for that ahahhahaa

    so, reading your replies (thanks!) it sounds like an engagement gift for the guy isn't 'mandatory' but can be done.

    i was thinking about a watch as well.. i wouldnt mind a men ring but seems like it isnt very used, maybe he wouldn't be too fond of it.. idk.
    there is something else i was thinking too as gift (also good for a Christmas gift) but wouldnt be something that he would wear on him.. so im a bit undecided!

    Oh, I am from Italy!

    Thanks for your replies
