Did your best friend just got engaged? Yay, it’s time for celebrations and the first up, on the celebratory list is the engagement party. Now if it is your BFF, you will know what engagement gifts to give. But the problem arises when you don’t know the couple that well. The thing with the gifts is that they are never obligatory. In fact, even the couples do not expect you to make a major purchase for this event. But you can always opt for something small and meaningful. And hence we bring to you a wishlist for engagement gifts which are not too overboard, but still, have sentimental value.
They are getting engaged and will have plenty of photos to fill the frame. Buy a decorative frame or make one if you are artistic enough. In fact, there are many DIY frames making kits available in the market. You can have the fun of making a frame and the couple will appreciate the personal touch. Here’s one from Engrave – DIY TV Photo Frame – it’s is novel, retro and cool.
It is rightly said that books are humans’ best friend. Even if the couple is not too much into reading, you can gift one and encourage them to read more. You can opt for anything from a love story, a poetry collection or even a wedding planning guide.
Keeping track of things as wedding planning begins very trying for most couples. So, gift a planner which contains everything from a checklist to budget worksheets. And help them plan the wedding smoothly and lower the normal chaos.
They are getting together forever. And it is the unwritten rule of courtship that, the to be groom has to gift flowers at regular intervals. So, gift a carrier for those beautiful flowers that beaux will bring to woo his girl. Pick Personalised Songbird Vase from Uncommon Good – it’s cute and will go with any home decor.
I am not talking about the bouquets, they are a total waste and frankly too mainstream. Buy a potted plant that the couple can replant in their garden or in the indoor pot. It is a very symbolic gift that they will nurture together just like their relationship. My Bageecha has a wonderful collection of Adeniums that you can pick from – these are easy to maintain and have a beautiful bloom.

Now this one is really obvious, and still, no one thinks of it. Gift the couple a place to store their new bling. This way they will not misplace the rings while taking them off for a shower or cooking. Amazon has cute and classy Ring Holders by Umbra.
Do you know how many thank you cards will the couple send out by the time they get married?
