Hello, loves! Last week we talked about how to plan an engagement party and we’re following it up engagement gift ideas. While an engagement gift is not required, friends and family sometimes want to give a gift in excitement for your upcoming day. To assist with gifting inspiration, we’ve rounded up ten of our favorite engagement gift ideas. Read on to see which items made the cut… and enjoy! (P.S. All ten gift ideas are handmade or offer a hand-crafted twist!)
Top 10 Engagement Gift Ideas
1. “Firsts” Wine Bottle Labels
Celebrate your ‘firsts’ with these custom wine bottle labels. There’s a wine label for your wedding day, first Christmas, first anniversary, first baby, and first dinner party. (There’s even one for first fight, which makes me chuckle. I think that just means you’ll make up sooner so you can laugh it off and drink your wine). :) By StudioBLabels.
2. Felt Dolls
When I first saw these felt dolls, I couldn’t believe how real they looked. I’ve never seen a pair of dolls made of felt before! These look amazing.
3. Wall Art
Wall art, like this custom bicycle print, is a nice way to congratulate the couple and give them something to display in their home. I like the symbolism of the tandem bicycle related to two becoming one. Beautiful print! I can imagine this being displayed in a couple’s home for years to come.
4. Tie the Knot Bracelet
This tie the knot bracelet is a great gift idea. You can customize it with blue beads for ‘something blue’ the bride can wear on her wedding day.
5. Wedding Planning Book
A book to help the couple plan their wedding is a great engagement gift idea! A friend we know was gifted with a copy of this book (with her ring, of course) at her proposal by her groom-to-be. Check out The Handcrafted Wedding. This book is chock-full of DIY ideas, handmade wedding tips, trends, and more!
6. Custom Coffee Mugs
I’m a huge coffee lover, so naturally these mugs caught my eye. What a great way to start your morning!
7. It All Began At… Print
“It All Began At _______”. If you know the couple’s story, commemorate it with an artful print such as this.
8. Engagement Wine /Beer Glass Set
The future bride and groom can toast in style with these engagement wine glasses, custom-painted to suit the couple’s unique style. I love how one is “my wedding planning glass” and the other is “wedding planning observer”. :) By RedLinesDesignShop.
9. Guest Book
Whether this guest book is used to record guests at their engagement party or at their wedding, it makes a fantastic gift. By Lorgie.
10. “Together” Initial Necklace
This “together” initial necklace makes a sweet gift for the bride to be for her engagement. It also makes a great wedding gift. I can see this necklace being worn from engagement – and beyond. By TheSilverWren.
