Your friends are getting engaged, so the wedding countdown has officially begun. It is time to figure out what gift to get them to celebrate their wonderful news. There are so many different types of gifts you can get that match their interests, from celebratory knickknacks to functional, everyday items to wedding planning must-haves.
To offer some help in your shopping endeavors, Shutter and Sound has composed a guide of gift ideas for a newly engaged couple and bride. These unique engagement gifts have various price ranges to fit your specific needs.
Gifts for the Bride
There are plenty of bridal engagement gifts for your best friend.
The bride-to-be will take lots of notes while planning her wedding, so a notebook is a practical gift. Remind her to keep track of the wonderful memories she is making until the big day arrives. There are multiple stylish designs and colors available online.
A Themed Coffee Mug
If the bride-to-be is a huge coffee drinker, this gift is perfect. She will probably consume lots of coffee during the wedding planning process, so a mug is the ideal everyday accessory. There are many different mug styles to pick out for your soon-to-be bride, and some companies even offer customization options.
A Tote Bag
Your best friend will attend many different meetings and need a bag to carry all her wedding planning essentials.
A Bridal Box Subscription
This Miss to Mrs. Box is one of the favorite engagement gifts for your friends. You can decide to send a box for three, six or nine months. This box has plenty of bridal goodies and wedding planning assistance, and it gets sent straight to their door.
A Wedding-White Robe
A comfortable, elegant wedding white robe is the perfect engagement gift for any bride. She can wear this throughout her engagement and on her wedding day while she is getting ready.
A Makeup Bag
This cute little gift will come in handy for when the bride-to-be wants to pack up some of her makeup for the big day. If she needs to make quick touch-ups, she will have this bag right at her fingertips, and her bridesmaid will be able to grab it at a moment’s notice.
A Sleeping Mask
Planning for a wedding can be stressful. It is essential that your friend gets enough sleep to look and feel her best. A sleep mask will be perfect for those stressful nights, blocking out any light that could interrupt her.
A Customizable Engagement Ring Box
If the bride needs to take her ring off for any reason, she needs a safe place to put it. You can customize a ring box just for her. This gift is practical and personal, and there are many different styles and colors available from different outlets.
A Neck Wrap
This is another great gift to help the soon-to-be bride relax. A neck wrap helps ease those tense muscles, and you can either warm it up or keep it cold!
