An engagement is such a special time to celebrate before all the planning begins! With so many choices out there from sparkling champagne glasses to personalized dress hangers, we chose to opt for practical engagement gifts this year. Here’s our top “can’t live without” picks for 2022!
1. Roll of stamps
This may seem silly, but when you’re planning a wedding there’s always something to mail out! Invites, save the dates, thank you cards…the list goes on. The best part is you can grab them at the post office and easily slip them inside a card. As wedding expenses start to creep up, your friends will be so thankful not to have to pay for postage! With so many different stamp options, going with Forever stamps is usually your safest bet!
2. Paper Cutter
No matter what level of DIY projects you think your friend is capable of, we promise a paper cutter will be a life saver. There are so many different brands out there, but you can easily find one under $30 online or even at your local craft store. In addition to saving time, a paper cutter will give everything from save the dates to menus a clean finished look.
3. The Essential Wedding Vendor Question Guide
Most people have no idea what to ask when they start interviewing their wedding vendors. Gift them our essential wedding vendor question guide with a unique set of questions to ask each vendor before hiring them! The best part is, you can send this guide via email if your newly engaged friends live far away, or print it out and put each page into a book or binder!
4. An Etsy Giftcard
The number of creative goods available on Etsy are endless! You can find everything from personalized mugs and bachelorette party itinerary templates to custom stationery to match your wedding inspiration. The fun details can sometimes get nixed when considering budget, so an Etsy gift card is a great way to gift something fun they may not spend money on otherwise.
5. Return Address Rubber Stamp
This is the gift that will never stop being used. Purchase a personalized rubber stamp off Etsy or Zazzle, with the couple’s name and address along with an ink pad. They can then use this stamp to easily mark their return address on all the mail they send out! If you want them to continue to use it even after the wedding, we suggest opting for their first names and their address below so they can reuse it for their holiday cards!
