Do guys get the short end of the stick when it comes to getting engaged? We’re not so sure. Yes, guys have to shell out for the ring — but that’s just part of the trade-off of being a guy, right? (Don’t forget that they also get to pee standing up. So they’ve got that going for them.) However, Desiree Hartsock apparently feels guys deserve an accessory of their own to commemorate the happy occasion, and so she got Chris Siegfried a pretty sweet engagement gift.
Chris reveals on Des’s blog that he thinks fellas appreciate getting a token of affection from their gal to celebrate an engagement, particularly if it’s something the guy can wear. If you ask Chris, possibilities include “watches, bracelets, necklaces, toe rings… whatever!” Okay, we appreciate Chris’s suggestions. But… a toe ring? Let’s not get carried away here, Chris.
As it turns out, Des gave Chris a watch during their first romantic getaway after Chris proposed. He admits that he wasn’t much of a watch guy before that, but he feels that the watch “symbolizes my commitment and eternal love for her.” In fact, he now wears the watch “everywhere” — except the gym. In other words, Chris and Des’s love can withstand anything, but Chris’s watch might not be able to withstand getting snagged on the elliptical.
We think a watch is actually a great idea for a gift to give a guy. And sure, watches are kinda obsolete in the smartphone era. But if Chris can adjust to wearing one easily enough, then we’re pretty sure your guy can, too. C’mon, he can have one thing in his life that isn’t digital.
What do you think of Des’s choice of engagement gift for Chris?
