“If you are going to a friend’s engagement party, then of course you are going to want to bring an engagement gift to show the couple that you care and to show your appreciation for being invited to the party in the first place. There are a lot of different engagement party ideas that you could go with, gifts that are sure to please the couple, but there are a few ideas in particular for an engagement gift that you are really going to want to think about.
Before you come up with any engagement gift ideas, you have to remember that you are going to be buying them a wedding gift too, and really it should be the wedding gift that is more expensive, so wait for that occasion to go all out. You still want to get something nice, but just don’t worry about overdoing it.
The engagement gift should really just be something smaller to show the couple that you are thinking of them and that you are happy that they are on their way to get married.
One great gift idea is to get the couple a set of wine glasses. This is something that is not going to be too expensive for you to afford and yet something that is very nice and classy and which they are going to get use out of. Anything that is an item for the household that you know that couple would use is a great idea.
Small kitchen appliances, or even something more creative like a set of monogrammed tea towels are really nice gift ideas that they are going to appreciate. Cookbooks are an idea if you know that one or both of them like to cook, basically anything that you know they would like. Now if you have been invited to the party but you do not know the couple that well, you should talk to some friends and family first that know them better, so you can get a better insight into what they are all about.
Getting an engagement gift should not be a major deal but of course you do want them to be pleased. Also check if they have a registry because this way you could make sure that you were not getting them something that they had already received as a gift from someone else so this way you can see also what gift ideas the couple is interested in.”
