‘Tis the season for engagements…more couples get engaged between Christmas and Valentine’s Day than any other time of the year. Well if you need a gift for a newly engaged couple or if you have ever been invited to an engagement party and wondered, “what do I bring as a gift?,” have no fear, we’re here to help.
Most engagement parties don’t come with a formal 6 week advance invitation, so we are often left trying to scramble to come up with a gift idea. So what is the right gift?
There are several routes you can take with your gift.
You could go as simple as a bottle of wine or as elaborate as a custom photo book documenting their journey as a couple. If you want to do more than just a bottle of wine try pairing it with a couple of engraved wine glasses.
If you’re lucky, your engagement party will fall around a holiday. If this is the case, try going to a local Christmas shop and have an ornament personalized with their names and the date or year of their engagement.
When all else fails, consider going to a place like Things Remembered. They can engrave a wide variety of items and can usually have it ready for you within a couple hours of purchase. Last but not least, hit the Internet for ideas…what can’t you find out there in the world of Pinterest!
