Have you got friends that are getting engaged and getting married? It is such an exciting time, and I always have a lot of friends that all get engaged around the same time. Some people get engagement gifts, and some don’t. If you are someone that buys engagement gifts, then this post is for you! It can be a tricky decision knowing what to get them so here are a few ideas to help you get the bride and groom something special.
Wedding Notebook and Planner
A great gift idea or the couple is some wedding stationery. Something like a wedding notebook or planner will help them on their journey to planning their wedding. It can be a busy time so all the notes they can make will make all of the difference to them staying organized. You want to make sure their wedding planning runs smoothly, so this is an awesome gift to choose.
Who can resist chocolate-covered strawberries? They’re such a treat, especially when they’re decorated with wedding-esque bow ties. Have a look online for a store that will make and send them for you. Failing that you should get on Pinterest and look for some inspiration. Making your own adds such a lovely element and thought to the gift too.
His & Her Gifts
One of the first thing people do when they get married or engaged is get something that is a ‘his and hers’ gift. Something like a pair of mugs or champagne flutes are a great choice.
There are so many things that say ‘Mr & Mrs’ that you can find online; plenty for ‘Mr & Mr’ or ‘Mrs & Mrs’ too. You could get the gifts personalized or engraved for an extra special touch.
There isn’t a better way to celebrate than with a bottle of bubbly, is there? Champagne makes a great gift choice for recently engaged couples. For an alternative choice, you could choose an aged whisky. The Macallan 18 price is good so makes an affordable gift.
Something for the Home
The couple may already live together; it doesn’t mean you can’t get them something for their home, though. How about some candles for all of their newlywed romantic dates at home? You could choose something for their kitchen like a flatware set or bowls and plates. Even a kitchen gadget like a spiralizer or a waffle maker would be great choices. Just get them something that they would want, but don’t feel that they can treat themselves to it. Then you know it is a good option.
If all else fails, cash works wonders for a newly engaged couple. They will be able to put it towards their wedding fund which is always a big help. If you don’t want to give it to them as cold, hard cash, you could opt for vouchers instead. Choosing a department store will mean there are many options for them and can get things for the wedding with it.
Good luck with choosing gifts. Then you just need to think about your wedding outfit!
