An engagement is a big day in a couple's life, and you should present them with something that they will value and treasure even after they are married. Here, we give you some unique ideas, that will surely brighten this important day for them.
Earlier, an engagement was a private affair where the boy would nervously pop the question with a ring in his hand, and the girl would blush, giggle, and say yes! However, these days, couples believe in celebrating this special moment with their near and dear ones.
Engagements have taken a form of a mini-wedding, complete with invitations, guest list, decorations, etc. If the couple is taking so much pain to invite people who are close to them, it only makes sense to return their sweet gesture with a token of love, on your part.

Unique Engagement Gift Ideas

Earlier home appliances and other objects of home d├ęcor were primarily gifted as engagement gifts. The concept was to help the new couple in setting their new home. However, these days a lot of variety is seen in the gift items presented to the couple.

Wine Glasses

Wine glasses are the most elegant and chic engagement gifts. For personalized gifts consider hand painting the wine glasses.
You can also consider gifting them a bottle of vintage wine. Other wine and bar accessories are also a great engagement gift idea. You can also give them a bottle of champagne as a mark of celebration.

Gift Baskets

Gift baskets are becoming increasingly popular as gift items. You can give an assortment of useful, funny, or absolutely cute things in a gift basket. A barbecue and beer gift basket is ideal for a couple who loves to throw BBQ parties.
