Engagement Gift Ideas for the Special Couple
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!
