Wonders of the Web: Engagement Gifts
By • Filed In: Gift Guide, Weddings

Ever wonder what to get a friend as an engagement gift? While it is definitely not expected or necessary to give engagement gifts, sometimes we just want to show that we are happy for them with a little something special. Here are a few ideas, some of which are similar to gifts that I’ve received and loved!

  • A subscription to a bridal magazine. What bride-to-be doesn’t love flipping through the pages looking for cute ideas? Even with wedding blogs all the rage, it’s sometimes nice to have a tangible magazine to browse. And there are so many out there to pick from!
  • An adorable ring holder for that shiny new bling she has just acquired. ETSY has plenty of adorable ones, but this one can be customized with the couples name or initials.
  • Champagne flutes for toasting the special occasion. There are so many adorable ones out there and in a wide price range. You could go with anything from fun and hand painted to classic crystal.
  • A new set of stationary showing off what will be the brides new last name. Shutterfly.com has a wide variety of custom stationary sets that are so reasonably priced. My sister actually gave me a set of these that say “A note from the future Mrs. Lindell” with a capitol “L” in the star. They are perfect as thank you notes for all the showers.
  • A return address stamp to reduce the amount of writing for all those thank you notes they will have to write.

I hope this gives you a few fun ideas! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I am a 28 year old Chi-Town city gal living in a cozy condo with my boyfriend, Jeff. Monday through Friday I go by Miss Schmitt, as my main gig is working as a speech-language pathologist at a school in the burbs. Beyond my day job, I adore decorating, finding treasures at flea markets, seeking new adventures in the city, laughing, indulging in anything sweet, and spending time with friends and family (especially my lovely sis, Kali). Read along as I share my hopes, dreams, and outcomes (the good and the bad!).
