Insider Tips // Engagement Gift Giving Etiqutte

Engagement Gift Etiquette

Between the holidays and Valentine’s Day it seems like everyone on your newsfeed just got engagement. Engagement gift etiquette is a well-debated subject.  Do you even need to give gift? If so, when? How much should you spend? And of course, what exactly should you give?

Q. When Should I Give an Engagement Gift?

– If you are invited and attend an engagement party
– If you are very close to the couple (in the wedding party or close family)
– If they have given you an engagement gift in the past

Q. How much should I spend? 

A. Engagement gifts are not where you should spend the big bucks.  This is typically a smaller & celebratory gift, under $50 is completely fine.  Bridal showers, Bachelorette parties and the actual Wedding Gifts are the ones to splurge on.

Q. What Should I Give? 

SOMETHING CELEBRATORY 

—> Engagement Ring MugsBling Wipes, Mr and Mrs Signs, their first Monogrammed Gift

WEDDING PLANNING MATERIALS

Q. When is it not required to give an Engagement Gift?

– If you can’t attend
