Engagement Season is upon us! Traditionally the majority of engagements occur in the time between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, with a large portion of those occurring between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. When someone I know and love (or even just like a lot) gets engaged, I love to give a little gift to celebrate this special occasion. Plus, isn’t it just fun to give people cute stuff?!
Here’s a list of my favorite engagement gifts:
A Cute Ring Dish – When I take my rings off at night, they always, always, always get placed in my ring dish on my nightstand. This is why this is the first gift I generally give a newly engaged friend. All my sparkles sit in my ring dish safe and sound while I snooze. Wearing your rings and jewelry to bed can actually damage them, this is why I always remove mine and place them in my adorable ring dish. Basically, if my rings aren’t on my fingers they are in my ring dish. I currently am loving the ones offered by Sweet Water Decor, with a few of my faves pictured below.
A Sweet Gift Box – I absolutely love the curated gift boxes that have become popular over the last few years. These are SUCH a fun gift to receive! Have you ever received a package with a few little goodies in it? Isn’t it so fun to take each item out and examine it?! I just love it. One local source for these pretty packages is Jade Taylor Market. I particularly love the deluxe wedding planner box which includes a kimono length robe, a stemless champagne flute, a vanilla milk gourmet bath bomb, a candle, and caramels. Talk about a perfectly curated gift for your bride-to-be bestie! You can check out all of the awesome gift boxes available from Jade Taylor Market here (ps- you can even put together your own custom box- HOW CUTE)
Kate Spade Bride Idiom Bangle – I mean who doesn’t love Kate Spade for all things bridal?! I gravitate towards Kate Spade because all of her items have a charming and sassy vibe. Kate knows how to make chic bridal items FUN. Which is why I love this bangle that has phrases such as “cue the confetti” and “tie the knot”. It is stylish and will match any outfit and with that extra touch of whimsy any bride to be will love it! Check it out here.
A Gorgeous Bridal Gown Hanger – This is one of those things that so many brides forget about for their big day, but those bridal gown detail shots will be that much more beautiful if that gown is hanging on a pretty hanger. It’s one of those special little details that gets overlooked but is so very appreciated on that special day! I LOVE the ones that are offered by BHLDN. They are so unique and would be such a neat heirloom piece to pass to daughters and granddaughters!
Engaged AF Coffee Mug (and/or wine glass)– You can bet the first post that any newly engaged belle is going to think about is the insta post. You know the one, the perfect shot of that left hand sporting a sparkly stunner. And we all know that this is best done while holding a mug of delicious coffee or glass of wine. She’s going to need to stay hydrated while planning that wedding anyway so best to get her the right drink ware for the job! And naturally Engaged AF is just my choice for best phrase. Well, that and Feyonce but that’s still in a close second. Check out this adorable coffee mug for your bridal bestie.
So When a gal pal finds her Mr. Right, now you have some ideas of how you can celebrate this very special time in her life! And DO NOT forget the CHAMPAGNE!
