Do you know a couple who recently got engaged? How exciting for them! Even though you’re celebrating with them, know that you’re not obligated to give a gift. But if you’d like to, it’s a thoughtful idea to give the gift soon after the couple announces their engagement. Or, if they’ll be having an engagement party, you could bring the gift with you. If you wait too long, it may be unclear whether the gift is an engagement gift or a wedding gift, which makes the task of writing thank-you notes a bit muddled. 

Regardless of timing, we’re sure the happy couple will be more than appreciative of your kind gesture. That brings us to… what to give.

But we’ve got your back with our list of the best engagement gifts for the couple who has it all. If you’re looking for some gift-giving inspiration, you’ve come to the right place!
