An engagement is a special time for couples, and a gift recognising their commitment is thoughtful and appreciated. Engagement gifts do not need to be expensive or extravagant, just a simple gesture celebrating the newly engaged couple's announcement. Consider gifts that have a personal meaning for the couple or something that may be useful as they embark on planning their life together.
A newly engaged couple has a lot to celebrate. They may even be having an engagement party. A bottle of wine or Champagne is a thoughtful gift, and can be used to toast to the couple's life together. Flowers are a widely accepted engagement gift, and can be made personal by adding a blessing of well wishes to the engaged couple. Gift baskets made especially for the couple can have themes such as "movie night" or "breakfast in bed". Include items that the couple can use together while they enjoy spending time with each other.
Personalised gifts for the newly engaged couple celebrate the joining of the two individuals. Photo frames engraved with their names or an ornament or plaque with their names and the date of their engagement will become a treasured keepsake. Monogrammed items such as towels, robes or glassware are a nice addition to their shared home.
His and Hers Gifts
His and hers gifts can be funny or whimsical and are a cute way of acknowledging an engagement. Items such as hand towels and pillow cases can be a useful start to the couple's linen sets. His and hers passport holders will come in handy for the travelling couple. A set of his and hers coffee mugs are the perfect accent to the newly engaged couple's shared breakfasts.
Practical gifts are thoughtful for a newly engaged couple who have tight finances. A wedding planning guide with places to record budgets, guest lists and vendor information will help with the details of wedding planning. A gift token to a home improvement or hardware store is useful for couples who have recently purchased a home. Items such as vases or candlesticks can be used while the couple entertain and will be treasured for years. Gift tokens for dinner, movies or a day at the spa allow couples to spend quality time together without having to worry about spending money they should save for the wedding.
