We're continuing with our 3-part wedding occasions gift series! Last week we talked about how gifting for all the occasions before the wedding can be a bit confusing since there's no registry or specific guidelines. Occasions like the bridal shower, engagement party, and bachelorette party all require a different type of gift and having a guideline just makes things so much easier!
So, we've totally got you covered! We already discussed what to gift at a bridal shower and today we're talking all about engagement party gift ideas!
So what do you gift the happy couple for their engagement party? Something to help them celebrate, something that represents their love, and something to help them plan for the upcoming festivities!
Here's a list of our top 8 favorite gifts ideas, all of which are heartfelt, thoughtful, and most importantly unique!
1. The Couples Box

It's such a wonderful experience for them to have together being newly engaged and it's so much fun! The gifts are all handmade by American Small Businesses and are thoughtfully curated with the happy couple in mind!
Inside The Couple's Box you'll find a bottle of Champagne Bubble Bath, a Love Sequinned Pillow Cover, two Cheers Stemless Champagne Flutes, and a beautiful coral handmade ring dish for her new ring!

2. Wedding Planning Book

I absolutely love my wedding planning book from Lucy Sui! It's not only a gorgeous teal color, which you all know I'm partial to, but it's so amazing for organizing all of your ideas! There's also sections to write down how your fiance proposed and what your current "favorites" are so it's also a wonderful keepsake to reflect back on!
This gift set comes with "His" and "Hers" mugs, which are so perfect for sitting down and planning together. I can't tell you how many weekends we sat down at the computer searching for venues for hours and each time we both had to have a coffee, so these mugs would've been so, so perfect! Definitely spring for the gift set, the couple will be so insanely happy ;)
3. Handmade Ring Dish

This gorgeous blush ring dish is handmade in Birmingham, Alabama by Susan Gordon Pottery. This would be so perfect to place the bride-to-be's new ring in and a lovely addition to their home. The sweetest thing about this ring dish, is that you're able to personalize it with the couple's initials, which makes this such a thoughtful and personal engagement gift idea!
The ring dish also comes in 7 other colors including white, light gray, dark gray, mint, light blue, midnight blue, and blush.

7. Bridal Magazines

Gift the couple a beautiful stack of wedding magazines all tied up with a silk ribbon! They'll so appreciate being able to cozy up together on the couch and flip through magazines instead of trying to look at a computer monitor together! Plus it makes creating a collage, inspiration board, and scrapbook so much easier and way more fun!
Want to add more to the gift? Consider a lovely bottle of champagne and champagne flutes or coffee mugs and local coffee beans!
8. Wooden Keepsake Box
