List: Engagement Gift Ideas


Brother and his lovely fiance bought us a gorgeous engagement gift.
Sorry, but I just totally had to show it off above!

As much as I hate to think about it, Brother is all grown up now and engaged himself.
It's time that we reciprocate with a gift just as grand.
Maybe my own personal brainstorming will help you guys out too!

Engagement Gift Ideas

1.  Kate Spade "Grace Avenue" Champagne Flute, Pair
I kind of, sort of, want to buy this set for myself!

Can be bought at Bloomingdales.com.



2.  Lauren Ralph Lauren Hollywood Hills Vase
They will always need a gorgeous vase to showcase their fresh flowers.

Can be bought at Macys.com.


3.  Mr. and Mrs. Sunday's Suppers (Hard cover)
The newly engaged couple will be spending lots of meals together!  Every recipe helps.
Can be bought at Target.com.


4.  Malden Glass 4"x6" Frame
This frame is way too pretty and chic to be considered cheesy.  It's a definite gifting do!

Can be bought at Kohls.com.


5.  Andy Warhol, I Love You So (Angel)
What better way to remember their engagement than a piece of art they can have for life?

Can be bought at onekingslane.com.


What are some other unique engagement gift ideas?

    1. Right? That's something we would definitely love b/c we save $$ by cooking. Not everyone is like that, so they may raise an eyebrow at me sending them to do work. hahahaha Fair point, Dez!

  2. A nice gift indeed there at your feed. I think 4 or 5 would be good, the first two the cats would break and the 3rd I'd never use lol

    1. I love my slow cooker...you just have to be careful what you put into it. Sometimes it's a slop pot!! hahaha

  9. The art work is really cute - I'm sure you could find some artists that could make something custom for the two of them, maybe with their engagement date on it?

    1. Omg, that's an awesome idea!!!! I think you may have given me an idea for a wedding gift for my man... :P

  10. I'm a big fan of the frame. (and you two are adorable!) My son bought me a fame for Mother's Day (complete with a picture of him :) haha) that simply says "Family" then he added a personal engraved note to it and it's one of my favorite gifts ever! My SIL got us a set of Waterford champagne glasses for our wedding but I'm so afraid to use them because they're so expensive! ;p

    1. Aw, see!! It's the little gifts that are the best. :) I know what you mean about not using stuff that are so expensive. I even do this with shoes. How awful is that?!

  11. I am not one to ask for suggestions on engagement gifts. I would probably get the happy couple matching t-shirts that say "I'm With Stupid." No just kidding... I will take your suggestions. You haven't stirred me wrong yet...

    1. I would never steer you wrong out of fear of ending up in the next edition of What Rustles My Jimmies!!

    1. Right??? I'm in love with that vase!! That's something I don't have. I need to invest in a statement vase...

  14. I would buy them a tango-dancing lesson from a qualified instructor. They could then perform the dance at their wedding - and maybe yours too!

    1. LOL look at you coming up with the greatest idea out of all of them. Way to show me up! I would love to take tango dancing lessons. Talk about a great time to bond, make memories, AND learn a skill.
