What to Give Your Engaged Friends & Family

Discover a number of engagement gift ideas for brides- and grooms-to-be.

Gift ideas for couples who are recently engaged

"Engagement season" takes place between late-November (around Thanksgiving) to mid-February (after Valentine's Day); however, you're likely to see a number of engagement announcements pop up on your social-media newsfeeds year-round. When a bride- or groom-to-be decides they're ready to pop the question and take the next step in their relationship, they probably won't wait until the popular time to do so – they'll do it when it feels right.

If many of your close friends and family members have gotten engaged this summer, you've likely been looking for the perfect engagement gift to celebrate the happy couple. While every person is different, there are a few popular gift ideas when it comes to surprising the lovebirds or bringing a present to their engagement party. A bottle of wine or Champagne is always appreciated, while many choose to gift the sweethearts with something related to their upcoming newlywed status, such as glassware or mugs decorated with "Mr." and "Mrs." Other popular choices include a wedding-planning notebook, bridal magazines, books, personalized items, or even a gift certificate to their favorite spa.
