Top 5 Engagement Gift Ideas: Do You Need to Give One?

You only need to give a gift if…

A. There’s a party. Unless it was otherwise specified on the invitation, or it is an informal get-together that is not being hosted, you should bring an engagement gift.

B. You are very close to the couple.  If so, give something sweet, sentimental and thoughtful right after they get engaged.Price Suggestions: $10- $60.

Here’s our Top 5 Engagement Gift Ideas:

4. Wishing Tree

I love this idea to bring to a party or coordinate with a few good friends and send the couple off with a tree full of happy wishes. Put your wishes on the tree and then the couple can read it later in the night!

    Love the idea of an etched bottle of wine or champagne.  It adds a little something to the token or momento.  Thanks for sharing.

  2. Crazy ideas I must admit 🙂 I’m wondering if anybody already tried them?

  3. What great gift ideas!  I especially love the wishing tree and the perfect picnic.  These would really stand out from the other gifts they receive, and would show that you put some thought and care into choosing a gift.
    Thanks for the ideas!

  4. That’s really an impressive idea. A wishing tree is to give as a present is the best way to express your love and closeness towards the person. It also makes them feel how much special they are for you.
