Choosing an engagement gift can be challenging. You want the gift to be memorable, unique, and special to the newly engaged couple. Luckily, there are so many excellent gift options that will beautifully celebrate the happy couple.
We spoke to Blue Nile, the world’s leading online retailer of diamond engagement and wedding rings, to share our thoughts on some of the best engagement gift ideas.
Why engagement gifts are important
Someone’s engagement provides a unique opportunity to show a couple how much you love and care for them. More importantly, it is a time to give the couple something special that will help them as they embark on the stressful, exciting engagement period and prepare to begin their new life together.
Any significant positive life change deserves some kind of celebration, and an engagement is no exception. An engagement is an opportunity to celebrate those you love moving into a new phase in their lives and is a chance to give someone something unique that will help them in their new home, life, or situation.
Engagement gift ideas
Minky Couture Blankets: these blankets are a fantastic gift that is luxurious and practical. Who doesn’t love a cozy new blanket? Get the couple a monster or grande size so they can snuggle up together.
Spice basket: If the couple will need help starting a new home together, a basket full of commonly used spices makes a great gift. It’s one of those things that might get looked over during the craziness of preparing a new home.
Date night: give the couple gift cards to go to the movies, dinner, or some kind of event together. Give them a themed gift like a smores kit, blanket, and fire pit that they can make a fun date night out of.
Christmas ornaments, cutting boards, memento boxes that are personalized with the couple’s name and wedding date or year.
A gift to help celebrate the happy couple
Choose a gift that is thoughtful and one that means something special to the couple. Showering the happy couple with a thoughtful gift celebrates their love and symbolizes the beginning of their life together.
