Birthday bling

So, next month is Signor Keswick's birthday. I know some girls give their fiance's "engagement bling" (something for them to treasure since we will always love our ringts). I've been trying to think of something *super* special to give him since we just became engaged and his birthday is right around the corner, but I'm stumped! 2 years ago I gave him a remote car starter. Last year I gave him a really nice watch. I've considered cufflinks, but those are more like Christmas presents - not a "Oh my gosh, you got me this for my birthday? Sweet!" present. He has an Xbox, I have a Wii.

I've considered a GPS, but it doesn't really say "I love you forever." He loves tools, but he doesn't have space for a Craftsman tool set (yet).

Any thoughts or suggestions? Did you guys get your hunk a special something?
What were your thoughts about this new "tradition"?

Golfclubs....if he is an avid golfer like mine. I got him new irons and he loves them. I think they will be around for awhile, and he can think of me when he is on the course. Not necessarily the same cost as an engagement ring, but definately still up there if you get quality clubs.

I would suggest a really great pocketwatch, something heirloom quality. They're not quite as common as cufflinks, but can be absolutely gorgeous. I'm thiking of getting one as a wedding gift for my FI.

Something old-fashioned but timeless? A closing pocket watch. You can have something sweet engraved on the inside face of the door so that no one else will ever see it.
