Engagement gifts are given to soon-to-be-wed couples as a way to congratulate them on the decision to finally tie the knot. Engagement gifts---much like stag party and bridal shower gifts---can be a way to poke fun at the engaged couple with gag gifts and inside jokes before the big day. Save the naughty gifts for the hen party, though. Use your engagement gift to give something both members of the relationship can enjoy.
Get your engaged friends "Taken" T-shirts. Most couples are too embarrassed to seriously wear articles of clothing like this publicly, but they make perfectly funny gag gifts for an engagement.
Marriage Survival Package
Consider buying the soon-to-be-married pair a marriage survival kit. Create your own basket with ibuprofen, marriage survival books, earplugs and a sleeping bag for arguments.
Create your own binder or book where you can ask friends and family to include their input. Ask for witty married life advice from everyone and allow them to sign the bottom of their advice page.
Good Luck Charms
Give your friends some good luck charms as a gag engagement gift. Consider rabbits' feet, clover-shaped items, and horseshoes.
Prenup and Pregnancy Test
Give your recipients a mock prenuptial agreement and a pregnancy test "just to double check."
Have a caricature done of the couple. Ask the artist to sketch them in bridal gear. This is something the couple will be able to put on display as newlyweds and caricatures always bring smiles to faces.
Apron and Tool Belt
Give the groom-to-be an apron and the bride a tool belt to mix things up a little bit.
Diamond Appraisal Kit
Give the happy couple a diamond appraisal kit for a laugh.
Ball and Chain
Check in local novelty stores or costume speciality stores for a ball and chain to symbolise the commitment your recipients will soon be making.
