Once you reach a certain age, you start to hear that all of your close friends are getting married and are organising engagement parties. You are of course invited and told that you need not bring any gift. Surely, this is an understatement, since any couple expects to receive something from their guests. Thereby, you have to search for the perfect engagement gift that suits the taste and the home of your soon to be spouses.
Before running to the first store and buy something, there are a few things you should know about. There are some original ideas that you might consider for an engagement gift. For instance, you didn’t think that couple cooking class might work out as an engagement gift. This can be a great activity for an engaged or even newly-wed couple, since it will help them bond. This experience will also give them some great ideas for entertainment and homemade meals. This engagement gift includes hands on instruction for making all the courses of the meal and it even allows you to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Another great idea for an engagement gift is a spa gift certificate. While most people consider spa gifts to be only female-appropriate, these gifts can also be suitable for couples, as well. Your friends will surely thank you for this great engagement gift and look forward to a perfectly relaxing afternoon. In the certificate area, you can also give a dinner-for-two gift certificate as an engagement gift. Just find you your friends’ favourite restaurant and make sure the value of the gift certificate allows the recipients to order appetisers, main course, dessert and a glass of wine for each.
As a bonus to this engagement gift idea, you can also arrange for a musician to serenade them during dinner or for the table to be adorned with fresh cut flowers. It is an ideal way for the bride and groom to de-stress during the frantic wedding planning. As you can see, there are many ideas for an engagement gift, you just have to choose the one that is suitable for the future spouses.
