Engagement Gifts for Friends

I’m at the point in life where the majority of my friends are tying the knot! It is such an exciting time and I am so happy that my closest friends are getting to share in wedded bliss.

In December, one of my best friends since college got engaged! It was a long time coming and these two couldn’t be more perfect for each other. And just this weekend she asked me to be her bridesmaid in her upcoming destination wedding. I am so truly honored to be able to celebrate their love and wish them nothing but the best for their new life together.

I talked to my friend this past weekend and it got me thinking about gifts to get your friends when they get engaged.

Right when these two became betrothed, I sent them the cutest ring holder from Crate and Barrel. <— okay, she’s my friend and the gift is basically for her! 🙂


Isn’t it precious? The best thing about it is the price tag. At only $12.95, it doesn’t break the bank but still lets the future Mr. and Mrs. know that you love them.

Here are some other great ideas to give your friends when they get engaged:

Something to proudly display your girlfriend’s new name: 


One of my bridesmaids actually got this for us for our wedding and I love it! It proudly hangs in our dining room. It has our initial, names and our wedding date. The frame is too perfect. I imagine she found it on Etsy. <— this site is probably the best when you’re searching for an engagement gift. Just search ‘engagement gift’ and you’ll be amazed what pops up!

Cutting Board


My sister got this for us and I LOVE IT! The pineapple is very special to us because Hubby actually proposed in front of the pineapple fountain in Charleston. I’m not sure where she bought it, but here’s a link to something similar.

These are favorite gifts that were gifted to me and as you can see, I love things with either a monogram or our name!

Some other ideas are:

His and Her’s Decanter Collection

Just Married Bikini Bottoms for the honeymoon

A new beach bag with her new monogram

Frames for all their gorgeous wedding pictures

What did you receive for an engagement gift that you loved? Did you hate anything?
