Engagement Gift Ideas
So in case you don’t follow me on social media or missed my post from a few weeks ago, James’ sister Danielle got engaged! I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Danielle for the three years I’ve been dating her brother and consider her a close friend of mine. This past weekend she actually asked me to be her bridesmaid, which makes me even more excited for her next-fall nuptials. All this wedding buzz has me browsing Pinterest and wedding blogs for fun ideas, gowns I think she would look good in and bachelorette party ideas. So prepare for the occasional wedding-themed post on here over the next year.
First up- engagement gifts. While some couples throw extravagant engagement parties to celebrate, others keep it more low-key. Either way, if your BFF, cousin or co-worker gets engaged, the nice thing to do is get her a small gift. Whether it’s something small like a bridal magazine (to help inspire them with wedding ideas) or a custom piece of “mrs” jewelry, they’re sure to appreciate it. My favorites are below- including a lovely picture frame with your favorite photo of the couple and the perfect ring holder.

I love the his ‘n her glasses! So cute. 🙂
I love the idea of a frame or some other thing that they both can use as they start their lives together!
One of my good friends is getting married in November and I’ve been stumped on what to get them for all the little parties before the big day. These glasses are too cute!
Those glasses are adorable!! Probably the most useful engagement gift we got was a personalized return address stamp for all of the thank you’s we’ve been sending.
That taken necklace is adorable!
i included those glasses on my engagement gift guide for wedding party – people LOVE them! the mag subscription is such a great idea!
These are all such great ideas! I love the taken necklace and that Q&A book!
Very cute! Aldo has some great inexpensive gifts for the bride-to-be too!!
some great picks
Wow I must be behind the times bc I’ve never heard of an engagement gift…with a bridal shower, bachelorette, and the wedding itself, isn’t that ENOUGH? I guess if you’re super close to the couple and want to get them something, then they are just really loved! : )
I love your gift ideas!! Congratulations to James’ sister!
You have no idea helpful this is, I am placing an order right now. Thanks 🙂
Dean’s sister just got engaged, too! I ended up making steph a little ring dish and buying a wedding magazine as a little gift to share in the excitement! But I really love those glasses, too! These are great choices.
The taken necklace is so cute! So exciting that you’re going to be her bridesmaid!
ohh these are great engagement gifts, ahhh each one so cute and dainty!
These are so sweet! Love the gifts with the bridal mags, those are always fun.
Awe! How special that you get to be a bridesmaid! My friend just got engaged and asked me to be her bridesmaid so I’ve been thinking about gifts for the couple. These are great ideas!
