- It can be a little difficult to buy engagement gifts without a registry.
- When I got engaged, we got lots of bottles of wine – a gift that never gets used, but after a while it stops feeling special.
- If you are looking for something with more fun, don’t make good use of any pair except the following 25 gifts.
Shortly after my partner suggested me a year ago, we started planning our engagement parties – yes, parties Plural We wanted to celebrate with our family in Florida, their family in New Jersey, and our friends in Brooklyn. Needless to say, it was a lot of work.
We decided not to register for our engagement party because we did not like the idea that people would feel obligated to buy us fancy gifts twice. For marriage, of course – if anyone is wondering, we have registered for Vitamix. But for the engagement party, we just wanted to be with our friends and family, celebrating the exciting next step we chose to take together.
I’ll be honest – money is always a great gift for a newly engaged couple. These days the cost of a wedding can blow your mind, and chances are your gift will go a long way in helping them budget. But if you want to give them a physical gift, it is better to take something relatively cheap that they can enjoy together.
Save big wedding gifts when they register for the things they really want and need.
