I got engaged last year + let me tell you, the high is real people. I still stop what I’m doing to stare at my ring multiple times a day. If you’ve been engaged, you know how special it is when your loved ones reach out with cute cards + gifts of congratulations. If you know someone that just got engaged, I encourage you to get them something special. When they use, wear, look at or drink whatever you got them, it will bring them so much joy + remind them of one of the best moments in their life!
My friend Becca sent me THE CUTEST, SASSIEST mug when I got engaged + it makes me so happy every time I reach for it when I’m brewing my coffee. It’s super cute + I love the memories surrounding it.
I wanted to make an engagement gift guide because there are a lot of cheesy, blah engagement gifts out there. I put together 11 pretty + practical gifts your bride-to-be will LOVE. Some they will enjoy once + some they will use all the time! Sources linked below ♡
Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb Highlight in ‘How Many Carats?!’
The shade name is reason enough to buy this for your newly-engaged bestie. If she loves makeup, or you just want to accentuate her newly-engaged glow, this gift is the perfect one.
I can’t stress this enough. There is nothing more useful after getting engaged. Even if you get her something else, I would recommend adding in a ring dish. Don’t worry she might get this gift from someone else because you need multiple. Three is my magic number. I keep one near my nightstand for sleeping, one in the bathroom for showering + one by the kitchen sink for dishes! My favorite one has the initial of my future last name.
Travel Ring Box
Let’s just say I went on a trip without one + was not happy. Ryan + I did a ski trip this past Valentine’s Day weekend + putting my ring on the nightstand at the hotel was giving me major anxiety. It wasn’t practical to pack a fragile ring dish in my luggage + no one wants to carry around the ACTUAL ring box they were proposed to with. With two ring slots, this will be useful even after she’s married! It’s the PERFECT travel accessory any girl will appreciate.
Can we just talk about how perfect this mug is? It’s still the best one in our mug cabinet + I don’t see that changing anytime soon. The SASS. The black nails. The ring. End of story.
Gifting relaxation is something your bestie won’t be able to thank you enough for. Wedding planning, dieting + draining your life savings can get a little stressful. This bath bomb has a super cute theme, is pretty to look at + will give your bride-to-be a much needed break!
Another thing I use QUITE frequently. It’s shocking how quickly your diamond goes from gleaming to foggy. This cleaning brush is the perfect gift to keep your girl’s stone looking shiny. Any jewelry cleaner will do, but I love the portability of this one! Super easy to toss in her purse or makeup bag.
How cute is this print?! It’s so dainty + feminine. I can see this in a white basic frame, leaned on a dresser or on a shelf in her closet. This gift is super unique + seeing it everyday will remind her of such a special moment in her life.
This is such a fun shirt to get for your newly-engaged bestie. I can totally see myself wearing this as a PJ top or as loungewear on the weekends. Pro tip: fiancé is the male term + fiancée is the female term. There are a lot of shirts out there saying otherwise. Or with the accent mark on the wrong e. Yikes.
Odds are your girl is going to be receiving a lot of champagne. And wine. And more champagne. Even if she already has a bar cart, this will be super useful at this time in her life. I would gift this by adding in a cute bottle of bubbly!
Custom Champagne or Wine Bag
This is something really special you can order for a surprisingly inexpensive price. AND from Amazon. A celebratory bottle is always a great gift to receive. This will give it that something extra.
Engaged AF Hat
I am not one of them, but if your bride-to-be can pull off the baseball hat look, this one is a gem. It’s a super cute accessory with a fun twist. Who doesn’t wanna brag that their man just popped the question?!
Whether you’re trying to find the perfect gift for an engagement party, or you just want to give or send your loved one something special to congratulate her, I can assure you she’ll be happy with any of these!
