Engagement Gift Ideas

So in case you don’t follow me on social media or missed my post from a few weeks ago, James’ sister Danielle got engaged! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Danielle for the three years I’ve been dating her brother and consider her a close friend of mine. This past weekend she actually asked me to be her bridesmaid, which makes me even more excited for her next-fall nuptials. All this wedding buzz has me browsing Pinterest and wedding blogs for fun ideas, gowns I think she would look good in and bachelorette party ideas. So prepare for the occasional wedding-themed post on here over the next year.

First up- engagement gifts. While some couples throw extravagant engagement parties to celebrate, others keep it more low-key. Either way, if your BFF, cousin or co-worker gets engaged, the nice thing to do is get her a small gift. Whether it’s something small like a bridal magazine (to help inspire them with wedding ideas) or a custom piece of “mrs” jewelry, they’re sure to appreciate it. My favorites are below- including a lovely picture frame with your favorite photo of the couple and the perfect ring holder.

  1. One of my good friends is getting married in November and I’ve been stumped on what to get them for all the little parties before the big day. These glasses are too cute!

  2. Wow I must be behind the times bc I’ve never heard of an engagement gift…with a bridal shower, bachelorette, and the wedding itself, isn’t that ENOUGH? I guess if you’re super close to the couple and want to get them something, then they are just really loved! : )

  3. Dean’s sister just got engaged, too! I ended up making steph a little ring dish and buying a wedding magazine as a little gift to share in the excitement! But I really love those glasses, too! These are great choices.

  4. Awe! How special that you get to be a bridesmaid! My friend just got engaged and asked me to be her bridesmaid so I’ve been thinking about gifts for the couple. These are great ideas!
