Welcome to the new wedding series on my blog! For those of you who don’t know, I got engaged in September last year. I want to share my wedding planning journey, tips and tricks and lots of inspiration. I was also a Maid of Honour last year and I am going to be a Bridesmaid and Groomswoman over the coming year, so I will also be sharing all things hen-do related and ideas for wedding guests.
If you know someone who has recently got engaged and you want to get them something, I’ve got you covered! Whether it’s a token gift to bring along to an engagement party or something extra special for your best friend, here are some beautiful engagement present ideas.
Custom Map Print
I think this is such a special and personal gift which can be cherished forever. A custom print with the location where the question was popped with their names and the date. This would also make a great wedding present as would lots of the other gifts.
Personalised Bottle of Bubbly
Elevate the classic engagement gift with bottle can be treasured forever, even once it’s been popped.
Brands like Fortnum & Mason make personalised bottles or alternatively you can make or buy your own label (there are some pretty designs on Etsy) which can be a bit more budget friendly and you can attach it to their favourite drink. Perhaps they prefer Prosecco or have a favourite wine.
This would make the perfect gift to bring along to an engagement party.
Personalised Bottle Stop
So ones of my best pals, Nathan, actually gave us this when we got engaged and I thought it was such a wonderful (and also useful) gift. It would perfect to gift alongside a bottle of bubbly.
Engagement Ring Dish
This was another gift I received from one of my besties!
It is a perfect present if you are close to the bride and want to give her a little something special for her new bling. There are so many gorgeous designs, I can’t possibly share them all, so worth having a good look on Etsy and Not On The High Street.
Something special to keep and burn on anniversaries or special date nights which can have a cute spot in your home.
And if you liked the idea of the map print but are unsure if they’d have anywhere to put it, you can even get the location of their engagement on a candle for an extra personal touch.
Printing a photo from their engagement and putting it in a beautiful frame is such a simple, inexpensive but thoughtful gift. Of course we all have lots of photos on our phones, but a printed photo is something extra special. A lot of personalised gifts have a longer delivery time, so this is a great last minute present which will still give them all the feels.
Hopefully this has given you some inspiration if you are wanting to gift something to your engaged pals!
