Prepare for the excitement: Your favorite couple are officially getting married! To shower the happy couple with love, congratulations, and good wishes, present yourself at the engagement party or at dinner with one of the warm engagement gifts in your hand. Although many of these gift ideas are aimed for the bride (she’s been dreaming of this day for decades, right?), both partners will enjoy the feeling behind these unique photos, especially if they are a parent, family member, friend, colleague, co-worker.
Whether you choose a personal gift that best reflects the couple’s love story, or choose something more practical that will help them prepare to say “I do” (coffee with wine for example), there’s no doubt that couples who are about to get married will appreciate this gift right away until the day of their marriage and in the years to come. And since we all know that it takes a glass (or two) of Pinot to relieve the stress of writing wedding vows, going to dress fittings , and setting up the guest list, we’ve added a few wine-themed gifts to this list as well.
