GIFT IDEAS FOR AN ENGAGEMENT OR ENGAGEMENT PARTY

Can you believe it?  They are finally getting married.  Now they have organized an Engagement Party to celebrate.  The party may be very large or very small.  Couples have rented out catering halls and bands to play during an elaborate dinner where you are served by waiters.  Other couples simply have a few friends and family come to their house and serve sandwiches, salads and soda.  Regardless of the celebratory manner, it is a happy occasion where gift giving has become a custom. This leaves you with having to get a gift.

Luckily, in today's society, many brides to be register with some select stores what they would like, so it leaves out any guessing on your part.  This has become easier, since you can look at the registry online, and purchase the items online as well (see our online registry list).  If not, you can ask the happy couple or their families.  If you still have no luck, you can try our list of items below.

Engagement Party Gift Ideas:

  • Many brides register with many types of stores.  See our Online registry list.

  • If there is no registry, ask the bride to be or their family.

  • If they give you no guidance, try some of our gift ideas below.  These are gifts that might not be purchased by another guest, or are items that are the recipient can have multiples of.

    • Combined Coffee/Cappuccino/Espresso maker (usually people purchase item with only one of the features)
