One would believe that wedding and engagement rules are as good as set in stone, but, like many other rules in life, they change rapidly. It’s difficult for everyone to stay up to date with the attest changes, and when you’re invited to a wedding or an engagement party, you might be puzzled and not know what the proper gift is. We leave the list of good wedding gifts for some other time and bring you a list of great engagement gifts instead.

A wedding planner

An engagement party today is a wedding party tomorrow, and when it comes to weddings, one word comes to everyone’s minds – chaos. Wedding planning is very stressful and can even be overwhelming for many, and a wedding planner is a great way to make things easier. A planning binder with checklists, calendars, and budget worksheets is a useful and thoughtful gift they will both appreciate in the future. With this gift, they will be able to stay on top of thing in the future, and they will be very grateful for your charming gift.

A gift card

Sometimes picking the right gift can be a bit overwhelming, and if the couple didn’t register at any store, you might be at a loss what to get them. This is why universal gift cards are the perfect engagement gifts for couples. This gives the happy couple an opportunity to pick their own gift and gives you a piece of mind as you won’t make a ‘mistake’ and get them something they already have or don’t need. You will come off as innovative and generous and they’ll end up with the perfect gift after all – something they picked themselves.

A bottle of champagne

You just can’t go wrong with a bottle of champagne and two glasses for the happy couple. The party itself is a perfect occasion to pop a bottle and raise glasses to the to-be-weds. A bottle is a nice idea, but you can spice things up with a nice set of champagne flutes too. There are so many lovely designs to choose from, and you can pick anything from delicate antiques to contemporary geometric patterns.  You can even pick the flues that match the bottle, as it will be a lovely memorabilia afterwards.

A champagne bucket

On the other hand, you can always count on somebody else bringing a bottle of champagne (it’s a rather common engagement gift), but you can think ahead and bring a champagne bucket instead. By taking this road less traveled you will be remembered as the person who brought exactly what they needed. Besides, after the bottle is empty you won’t keep it, but a bucket can be used in the future as well.

Personalized gifts

There are adorable sets of gifts for him and her for you to choose from, and these are small and convenient enough to be brought to an engagement party. You can bring anything, from personalized coffee mugs with their names, embroidered bathrobes with ‘Mr.’ and ‘Mrs.’ written on them, or a wine set that has a bowtie and glasses. You can also order two pillowcases for their living room couch cushions, a set of coasters with their names, or bring them matching key rings.

Remember that engagement parties are there for everyone to have a good time and celebrate the fact that their good friends and/or relatives are going to get married in the future. As a rule, these parties are less formal than wedding themselves, so feel free to loosen up a bit. So buy the right engagement gift, pick your outfit, join the party, and have a good time.
