The OG Bachelor couple, Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich, are more in love than ever after four years together — and with their wedding day looming, interest in their rock-solid relationship has never been higher.
Now, nearly a year after their engagement, the pair has shared some sweet details about how Tim picked Anna's engagement ring — and let us tell you, their honesty is refreshing! "There were a lot of subtle hints about wanting him to propose and what engagement ring I wanted," Anna reveals. "First, the hints were subtle but then I ended up sending him exactly what I wanted."
Easy, right? Not so easy, 'cause poor old Tim lost the images and had to rely on his memory — and, of course, trust what his gut was telling him. We've gotta say, he did an incredibly good job and it might be something to do with his tips below on how to shop for your partner with confidence. Handy info considering it's Valentine's Day this Wednesday!
Tim and Anna have now partnered with Pandora to unveil the Pandora Elevator Store at 201 Elizabeth St, Sydney (complete with a singing bellhop who will serenade you today between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. if your heart desires) so we can imagine there's a whole lot of jewellery on Anna's wishlist. Judging by her heavy-handed hint-dropping, she'll be getting exactly what she wants this February 14 — teach us your ways, Anna!
Anna on how she hinted for her engagement ring:
"There were a lot of subtle hints about wanting him to propose and what engagement ring I wanted. First, the hints were subtle but then I ended up sending him exactly what I wanted. The funny thing is, he ended up losing the images and went with his gut. The engagement ring was even better than what I initially wanted . . . He did well, very well! I'd suggest to others to be subtle with their hints, yet reiterate it over and over again!"
Tim on Anna's not-so-subtle suggestions:
"She was hinting for an engagement ring for years, haha!"
Tim on how to pick the right gift for someone you love:
"You need to always be observant and ask subtle questions. For example, when she's scrolling Instagram and looking at women in the fashion space, you can ask, 'Would you wear that? What do you think of that? What do you like about that?' When you can buy something for her without directly asking what she wants, it's so much better."
Anna on what she'll be wearing this Valentine's Day:
"Valentine's Day is about being fun and flirty. A cute little irresistible dress topped off with my fave pieces from Pandora — meaningful, beautiful jewellery. I love dressing up and Valentine's Day is the perfect time to do so."
