Best Gifts For Engagement Parties: Effective Tips and Ideas …


He surprised her with a ring, she cried but she said “Yes!” Well, this calls for a celebration and the best way to do so is by throwing an engagement party. You may be excited to join the party but you simply have no idea what to bring for the couple.

Engagement parties are as special as the actual weddings. As a friend or relative of either of the couple, gifts serve as your special way of expressing your love and thoughts for the couple. Thus, pressure steps in as to how to make your gift extra special. Here are some tips for the best gift ideas for an engagement.

If you are close with the future husband and wife, you should be able to know their personalities. And one idea for you in coming up with a gift to bring to the engagement party is somehow relating it with their interests. It is an advantage being close with the couple since you know what their interests are.

Engagement party gifts don’t have to be expensive. Couples don’t come up with a party just to receive gifts. It is all about formally announcing their engagement to the people closest to them. In special occasions like an engagement party, the idea of the gift counts more than its price. You can either go for do-it-yourself gifts or those that the couple can use or spend quality time together.

From the day after the engagement party to the day of the wedding, the soon to be married couple is sure to be preoccupied with a lot of schedules and preparations. You can take it as a pointer for your engagement party gift. You can go for:

1. Notebook/organizer- for planning their wedding preparations
2. Photo calendar with the couple’s portrait as the centerpiece – to help the couple keep updated with all the schedules
3. Countdown clock – best way to keep the couple excited as the countdown zeros in to their wedding day

Simple but sweet and thoughtful gifts will surely leave a mark. You don’t have to spend much for it. All you need is imagination and creativity. You may consider giving:

1. A pair of t-shirts with the couple’s photo printed at the front/back with a phrase of each of their wedding vows
2. A pair of towels with their names embroidered in it
3. An instant scrapbook that is already full of messages and wedding wishes from friends and relatives

Just because cheap but thoughtful engagement party gifts are given with more significance, it doesn’t mean that expensive ones are sent at the backstage. For wealthier individuals or for at least a group of friends or relatives, they can impress or amaze the couple with:

1. A round trip ticket to their dream vacation get-away for their honeymoon
2. Gift certificates for either of the following – spa, photo studio, or professional dance lessons

Gifts are like symbols. They contain messages with no need to be verbally spoken. They are considered special because they simply come from special persons. In special occasions like an engagement party, you might as well consider your relationship with the couple and their personality before you’ll be able to decide the best gift to bring for the party.
