You've been through so many ups and downs together...through first kisses and breakups, long distance relationships, and many midnight phone calls trying to figure out what he really meant by that text. Then she found the one, and you couldn't be any happier for her. She's your sister and your very best friend in the world, and she deserves the most gorgeous engagement gift imaginable. Nothing short of unique and extraordinary will do for her in this special moment, and so we have gathered the most beautiful and intriguing gifts for her in one place, ready for her special day.
It can be hard to find the right present for a bride to be, and it can be even more challenging when you're shopping for your own sister. If your sister is your bestie, you won't want to settle for anything less than the best engagement gifts.
If you're going to be attending an engagement party in the future, and you're looking for a few ideas, the following suggestions should get you off to a solid start.
The best presents aren't always something you can open. If you're buying for a couple that already has a lot of the things they need, you might want to give them an experience instead. Examples of experience gifts include:
* Donations to a honeymoon fund
* A gift certificate to a restaurant
* A spa day
Some couples will receive more gifts than they can possibly use. If you're trying to find a way to say congrats to a couple that isn't looking for new things, try giving them an experience instead.
If you live in an area that sees cold winters, you know that you can't possibly have enough blankets in the winter. That's why blankets are an excellent engagement present. They can be a terrific wedding gift as well.
If you do choose to give a blanket as a gift, you'll want to look at plush, high-quality blankets that the couple wouldn't purchase for themselves. A beautiful blanket could wind up becoming a cherished keepsake.
When couples are starting a life together, they often appreciate presents that are practical in some way. This is especially important for newlyweds that don't live together already. You'll need to make sure that the happy couple has everything they need for the home, including glassware.
A set of wine glasses, tumbler, champagne flutes or another type of glassware will really come in handy. This is the kind of gift that will be used again and again. If you choose high-quality glassware like stemless wine glasses, it will be used for years. Every time your sister reaches for a wine glass or a tumbler, she'll think of you.
Your sister probably wants to look her best on her wedding day. You can help her to showcase her natural beauty by giving her premium skincare products. From creamy moisturizers to nourishing oils, there are all kinds of items that can help your sister to achieve a natural, healthy glow.
Wedding planning can be stressful, which is why skincare is particularly important in the months, weeks, and days leading up to a wedding. If you're looking for a fantastic bride gift, skincare products are going to be one of your best options.
Your sister isn't going to want to keep her engagement ring on all the time. With a ring dish you can ensure that she has a safe place to store the jewelry that she cherishes. If you're looking for an inexpensive gift that could become a keepsake, this is a great option.
These dishes can be beautiful decorative items, but they can also keep valuables from becoming lost. If your sister doesn't have something like this already, this is a bride gift that you'll want to take a closer look at. You should be able to find a beautiful dish that your sister will love.
Between engagement presents and wedding gifts, newlyweds tend to receive lots of presents. If you want to avoid giving a couple a present that they won't be able to use, you should consider consumable gifts. These kinds of gifts are usually a big hit, and best of all, your present won't go to waste.
Whether you give the couple with a wine subscription club membership or choose to give them an assortment of gourmet chocolate, consumable gifts won't be around for long. If your sister enjoys cooking, you can also look at gifts like spices and sauces.
If you're not going to be able to come to the engagement party in person, you may want to consider sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers. While flowers won't last forever, a high-quality bouquet will be able to last for a very long time.
There are all kinds of beautiful bouquets for you to choose from. The flowers you select will be shipped safely and securely, which means they'll be in perfect condition when they arrive. Sending your sister flowers is a great way to make your bestie feel like you're right there with her when she becomes a future mrs of the love of her life, even when you're not.
If you can think of lots of small gifts you'd like to give your sister, but you're struggling to come up with a big gift that she would enjoy, gift baskets are a great option. While you can buy a pre-made gift basket, you can also put together a basket on your own.
There are all kinds of items you can include in a gift basket, from candles to coffee mug to hand lotion. When you put together a great gift basket, you can think about the kinds of gifts that your sister would enjoy receiving.
Funny Engagement Gifts
If your sister loves funny and witty type gifts, giving one on her big day might be a good idea. But make sure its the right kind of humor that is appropriate for the occasion. You might want it run it by the bridesmaids just to make sure!
If your sister is into arts then wall art or other art collections can be a perfect engagement gift for her. After her 'I do' moment, she will be busy beatifying her new dwelling and her favorite art will add the right ambience to it.
If your sister is your best friend then a gift set or other items, you might find useful or trigger more ideas include: a picture frame, an engagement mug, an engagement photo frame, an engagement card, an acrylic keepsake, a stainless steel necklace and others.
Customized/ Personalized Engagement Gifts
If you're looking for unique engagement gifts, you may want to seek out presents that are totally unique. On sites like etsy.com, you can buy handcrafted items made by artists. Many of these gifts are beautiful, and some presents will even come with their own gift box.
Another option is to look for gifts that you can be personalize in some way, like monogram towels. An engaged couple will be receiving a lot of presents, which is why you'll want to look for gifts that no one else will give them. Presents like this are sure to be cherished.
