Some ideas for choosing a unique engagement gift are to consider a stress-relieving gift or a gift that helps the couple prepare for the wedding day. Another consideration is to remember it is a gift to celebrate a coming marriage, not a wedding present.
If the engaged couple are your friends, a good stress-relieving gift might be a spa gift card or a book of movie tickets. A good idea for a wedding day preparation gift is a bridal magazine subscription or customized flutes for the champagne toast.
If the couple is family, a good stress-relieving gift could be a weekend getaway or a winery tour. A good idea for a preparation gift is to offer to pay for some aspect of the wedding, such as flower arrangements or linens, or buy them a cooking class package.
