Engagement Gift Ideas for the Special Couple
Whether you’re well acquainted with your friend’s brand new fiancé, or you’ll be meeting for the first time at their engagement party, buying an engagement gift that they will both like can be tricky. The key to buying engagement gifts for couples is to go for something they can enjoy together, be it an edible treat they will munch on over wedmin, a set of gorgeous wine glasses or a personalised pillow with the date of the proposal on (just make sure you get the date right!). His and hers gifts are a fun idea and mean there will be no squabbling over who gets to use the engagement mug, or a personalised pressie is a nice idea too, especially if you’re buying for the couple who has everything! Once the engagement gift is in the bag, it's time to start thinking about unusual wedding presents... the gift giving never ends!
The Most Thoughtful Unusual Wedding Gifts
Once you’ve been with your other half a fair few years, putting together your wedding gift list can be one of the trickiest tasks to tick off your to do list.
