Engagement Party Gifts Guide: Unique Ideas your Friends Will Love
by Amy Breckenridge

Hi all! My name’s Amy and I’m the creator of Cupcakes & Couture, a lifestyle blog featuring posts on baking, shopping, DIY projects, interior design, gifts and more! I’m excited to be swapping blogs with Wedding Party today and sharing my engagement party gift guide with you all. At age 26, I’m at the point in my life where my friends are starting to get engaged which means there are lots of celebrations to attend! It’s easy to shop for your girlfriends’ bridal showers and to pick out a gift off the couple’s registry for the wedding, but choosing engagement party gifts can be a bit tricky. While it’s always appropriate to bring a bottle of champagne, a bouquet of flowers or a gift card to their favorite restaurant, I think it’s fun to gift something a bit more creative and personal. I also think it’s important to keep the engagement gift cost down - after all, you’ll be buying at least 2 more presents on top of spending money to attend the wedding (and maybe even the bachelorette party!)

Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas under $60 or the engagement party - which is your favorite?

1. Kate Spade ‘His Glass& Hers’ Hiball Set - $50. Start their barware collection off right with this cute etched set from Kate Spade. Shopping for a same sex couple? No problem - there’s a ‘His & His’ and a ‘Hers & Hers’ set available too!

2. ‘It All Began’ 8x10 Customizable Print - $19. If you know where the happy couple met, personalize this print with their story, names and wedding date in a variety of colors and fonts. Then take it to your local framing store to get it matted and framed for a really special gift!
