Oh how I knew more about giving engagement gifts before I was a bride! There is something about being on the other side that makes you understand the value of a unique or customized gift. Not do tear down ‘his and hers’ robes or engraved champagne flutes, but once you start paying attention to all the options out there, you realized there are so many awesome alternatives. I have been fortunate to receive some of the items below which I love dearly, and am excited that I have an arsenal of fun presents (in varied price buckets!) to reach into should another loved on become engaged. Of course many of these could double as birthday, hostess or wedding gifts with a little creativity so hopefully you find a little inspiration for the next celebration.
