Weddings can be such an exciting experience both for the happy couple and those invited to witness the ceremony –but also a really overwhelming one. Technically, there are two ceremonies to fret over, and the first one is the engagement party. While you’re not obliged to bring a present, it’s so much better when you show up with a gift. Wouldn’t you agree?
So, to help you steal the spotlight with the perfect engagement gift, we have compiled a short but effective list of ideas!
#1 New Dinnerware for Her
Every new home needs stylish dishware, and here is your chance to gift the couple something that will remind them of you for decades to come. You can choose to focus on plates and bowls or glasses and utensils.
#2 A Bar Kit for Him
Boys will be boys, so why not gift your friend a timeless cocktail making set? If the bride-to-be loves a good cocktail, it will be the perfect gift you can make. And, if she takes him shopping, he can always drown his sorrows in a cocktail he made himself!
#3 A Champagne Cooler for Them
Sure, it’s always a good idea to bring a champagne bottle when you’re going to an engagement party, but imagine how much more badass it would be if you’re the one bringing the cooler. The couple can use it for all their memorable occasions, and it’s just the perfect gift for the occasion.
#4 An Engagement Photoshoot
They most probably have a wedding photographer, but do the bride and groom have an engagement photoshoot planned? Find out and organize one for them. There are gift cards for these types of presents, and you can also make it a joint effort with some of the other guests.
#5 A Cake Knife
In their very near future, your soon to be wed friends will have a very important cake-cutting ceremony, so gifting them a beautiful cake knife is both smart and thoughtful.
