So someone close to you has just made an engagement announcement, now what? Whether that special someone in your life went all out to share their news or was a little more understated, getting them an engagement gift to mark this very special milestone is a must. Here we reveal the best engagement gifts for him, for her and for them…
Wedding Planner Book
Help the happy couple kick start the wedding planning process in the most organised fashion by gifting them with a wedding planner book. Most provide an easy to manage binder to keep wedding plans in check right up until the big day. Wedding planner books tend to include checklists, calendars and budget worksheets, whilst some even provide detailed advice at every stage to guide the couple through.
This Wedding Planner Book from Blush and Gold is one of the best. It contains worksheets and mood boards allowing brides and grooms to collate inspiration. It also includes a guest list and budget planner so the couple can really get down to the finer details. The honeymoon can be planned to perfection too, with space for destination inspiration, hotel research and packing lists. All this wedding planning goodness is bound in a beautiful and stylish design.
Wine and Love Letter Box
Give the happy couple all they need to toast their engagement with this Wine and Love Letter Box from Confetti. This is not only a great gift but a stunning keepsake that will allow the couple to revisit fond memories of their engagement and wedding day on anniversaries and at other marriage milestones. Some have even used their Wine and Love Letter Boxes at their wedding ceremonies!
Wedding Countdown Calendar
Make the countdown to that wedding day even more exciting for the bride to be by gifting her with this Personalised Wedding Countdown Calendar by Modo Creative. Taking inspiration from the traditional advent calendar, this engagement gift offers 24 doors of personalised messages to spur stressed brides on during their final weeks of wedding preparations.
Story of Us Print
You may need help from the bride or groom to personalise this great gift. The Story of Us Print from Letterfest is an excellent memento for any bride or groom and the perfect way to commemorate their journey so far as a couple.
Whilst the wedding planning experience is exciting, it can be particularly hard on the couple at the centre. Making time for each other when evenings and weekends are spent on wedding planning isn’t easy, so give the engaged couple in your life the gift of time together. There are countless gift experiences that are perfect for couples, here’s one of the quirkiest courtesy of Hitched:
“If you’re looking for the perfect engagement gift for a couple then this experience day will see them creating their own wedding rings. We love the idea of combining a fun day out with making such a special piece of jewellery in the process!”
You can give your couple lots more inspiration and provide a flurry of excuses to take a night off from wedding planning with A Year of Dates gift set.
