The Perfect Engagement Gift
An engagement is a happy affair, and it’s traditional to acknowledge this felicitous event with a party, a meal, and often, a gift! However, what to offer a couple that may or may not be close to you, or aren’t boisterous about their marriage, or quite the contrary? The Engagement Gift reflects both the giver and the recipient, and there’s a perfect way to express congratulations for an engagement.
The usual gifts are things you might bring to a loved one: flowers, chocolates, or a beautiful card. Though there are other gifts that could be better for a young couple getting started, such as a gift card, a gift certificate to any romantic activity, such as an overnight stay at a luxury hotel or a romance package at a spa. Furthermore, wine is always an appropriate gift, as it ranges from price to palette to effervescence, and innately fosters celebration!
If the happy couple tends to be more formal, wine and other engagement gifts are advisable depending on their situation. If they are expecting, baby gifts and maternity aids are thoughtful. Perhaps the couple is festive and likes parties, so you could bring anything from quality speakers to a case of spirits, or even dinnerware for their home.
Whether it’s expensive and lavish or small and considerate, an engagement gift is simply a way of remembering the happy couple and wishing them well. Consider them and your congratulations, and with so little as a phone call, you won’t go wrong!
