1) A wine-and-love-letters box

The love letter ceremony box set featured below is a gorgeous engagement gift. Complete with two etched wine glasses and an exclusive stationery set. It’s a romantic idea for you and your partner – simply write love letters to each other and then lock them away with your favourite wine until after your wedding (or until your first, fifth, or even tenth wedding anniversary). 

It could also be used to write letters to your cherished loved ones to lock away with the gift of wine, ready for them to open and read after their wedding day, perfect if you want an engagement gift with sentimental value.

2) A wedify Membership

Treat the happy couple to everything they could ever need to plan their wedding! A wedify membership gives wedding planning couples access to amazing perks, like free tickets to The National Wedding Show, free copies of Confetti magazine and incredible wedding deals and discounts that will save them hundreds of pounds as they plan their wedding.

The 12 month wedify membership for engaged couples also offers discounts on holiday packages, such as 15% off with TUI and a £250.00 honeymoon voucher to spend with the Turquoise Holiday Company.

3) Rosé and a personalised wine bag

Instead of a gift box, another easy gift idea is to create a personalised gift bag made just for your loved ones. Complete with a bottle of wine or their favourite tipple you can create a collection of engagement gifts chosen especially for the happy couple. 

These engagement gift bags are perfect if you’re looking for something light hearted and memorable for your friend or loved one. We love this selection of personalised engagement gift bags and keepsakes, perfect for wine lovers. 

Try adding some thoughtful keepsakes such as this etched heart or XO bottle opener (pictured).

Personalised glassware is a very popular engagement gift idea and you will find there are lots of options to choose from. We love these stemless wine glasses which make the perfect elegant engagement gift for someone who likes wine or cocktails, and our personalised “Mrs. Nice” and “Mr. Naughty” whisky glasses (shown with “Bring On the Cheer” personalised napkins) are the perfect engagement gift during Christmas time. 

If you’re thinking of designing personalised glasses as an engagement gift, try adding a bottle of their favourite drink, or perhaps add the year or date they are due to marry – the perfect engagement gift and keepsake. 

For a little extra engagement gift, you can also create personalised coasters and beer mats. Take a look at these cork coasters and love bird coaster sets, we love their simple style and sentiment.

5) A personalised jar

A personalised jar is a very versatile gift; it can be used as a drinks jar, a treats jar, or you can use it as an organisation jar by filling it with all of your bits and bobs, your paint brushes, your makeup brushes, etc. 

If you’re on a budget, try filling a personalised jar with something you know your engaged couple will love – hot chocolate and marshmallows, a layered cookie recipe, or even some little IOU notes or favours you can offer such as helping with preparation for the wedding, babysitting, or an IOU for a cooked meal etc.

This personalised engagement gift is thoughtful and creative, especially if you’ve got to keep to a budget or you find you have lots of friends and family members getting engaged at the same time.

A mug can serve as a great keepsake as well as an engagement gift, try going for a personalised mug, or a bride & groom theme. We love this selection of bride, groom and engagement message mugs – perfect too if you’re on a budget.

If you want to add a little extra to your engagement gift why not create a breakfast hamper, try packing tea, coffee, bucks fizz, croissants, jam, and of course, your favourite mug.

12) Poetry

If you’re a bride or groom who has trouble finding the right words, a very romantic engagement gift idea is to choose a poem you love and present it to your loved one, friend or partner. 

Alternatively, a small book of love poems or a romantic novel is a gorgeous little engagement gift too. If you’re choosing an engagement gift for the happy couple, there are also thousands of poems about friendship and brotherhood that would be perfect. 

Don’t forget to write a personalised message in the book too, the perfect thoughtful engagement gift and keepsake. Try scribing the message with this beautiful ink and quill set, or even better give this as a gift too for the couple to write down their own message, vows or poetry.

14) A ring box

Usually the couple will prefer to choose their own ring box(es) so that it’s exactly what they want. However, there’s a high chance that you may know what kind of ring box your best friend or partner likes, so you may choose to surprise them with one ready for the wedding.

 If you’re not sure, just ask if it’s something you can choose for them, many couples will be touched by this thoughtful engagement gift idea. Take a look at these amazing acrylic wedding ring boxes, perfectly designed to complement any wedding theme and colour scheme.

46) Date night ideas

It’s important that couples put aside time for each other in their busy lives, so what better way to encourage that than by giving a gift of a jar of date ideas? Write different date ideas on wooden hearts or lolly sticks and put them in an empty jar. Then the couple can pick one out at random  every week. They can even add to the list of ideas if they want.

Featured below: Rose Gold Wishing Jar Guest Book Alternative with Wooden Hearts and Lace Medley Napkin Tag

47) Dressing gowns

A favourite engagement gift idea is to give the bride and groom a personalised dressing gown. These can be worn on the morning of the wedding and make lovely photos too. We love this white lace bridal robe and this simple grey cotton mens robe, both of which can be worn after the wedding too. Try pairing with these cute personalised hangers.

48) A personalised towel

Bath and hand towels are a perfect engagement gift for a newly-engaged couple or a couple who have just moved in together. These lovely personalised towels can be used for the honeymoon too – a great engagement gift that will definitely be used.

If you’re not sure what to go for try opting for something natural that will suit any home colour scheme such as these gorgeous fluffy white towels with initial embroidery.

49) Fun accessories

Give the couple a fun, quirky gift that they can use again at the hen or stag party, such as the below-featured “Bride” headband and black sunglasses. If you’re looking for a playful light hearted gift these are perfect and can be kept as a memento by the bride and groom.

51) A card

Perhaps the simplest and easiest engagement gift of them all is a beautiful card that you may choose to present to the happy couple with some pretty balloons. A card is often the item an engaged couple will treasure and keep, especially if it is from a loved family member. Try scribing a handwritten message or poem to make it extra special.

52) A good luck charm

And lastly, one of the most beautiful engagement gifts of them all is a small good luck charm that can carry the couple through all of their wedding planning, the big day itself, and into their happily ever after. 

We love these pretty heart charms which can be kept and treasured, made into a bracelet or kept in a jewellery box as a memento of their happy day.
