With wedding gifts, you usually have a couple's registry to shop from, or there's always the stand-by homewares that any newlyweds would appreciate. For an engagement gift, there's really no guide or parameters. However, engagement gifts are becoming more and more popular — especially amid the pandemic when friends and family can't always travel or celebrate in person. If you're shopping for an engagement party or a gift to send a couple who just got engaged, we've rounded up the best ideas for every budget, from funny gifts to edible arrangements to little luxuries. Take a peek at our favorite gifts below and start shopping for the happy couple.


Etsy | DigitalArtonEtsy

Personalized gifts don't have to have fancy monograms or expensive engraving. This custom print from Etsy captures a star chart from a specific day in time. And at just $15 for a digital download for a gold foil-look print, this is both thoughtful and budget-friendly. You could either print the file yourself or send the couple the download and let them customize the printing and hanging of the image to fit their home.

Jelly Belly

Send the couple a case of bubbly — jelly bean bubbly that is. Jelly Belly makes a non-alcoholic, champagne-flavored jelly bean, complete with green bottle packaging. It's a fun way to cheers without mailing booze.

Etsy | APKornaments

Help the couple celebrate their first Christmas together as fiancés with this sleek, custom acrylic ornament from Etsy. It's made from ultra-durable acrylic and comes packaged in a chic gift box that's ready for gifting.


For the couple who loves to travel, this scratch-off adventure list is the perfect way to keep track of destinations. Even better: It comes with a magnetic hanger all for under $20.

Etsy | KamprCo

For the crunchy, outdoorsy couple, you can't go wrong with a classic camp mug. And this handmade one features personalization with the couples' names on one side and the sweet phrase "The Adventure Begins" on the other.


From $29
Etsy | GestuelStudio

How cute is this digital illustration? The hand-drawn portrait is available as a digital download or as a print on matte paper. Personalize it even more with the couple's names and a date of significance, such as their engagement or wedding date.

Homesick has tons of great candles for milestones and celebrations, from Mother's Day to birthdays. And the Let's Toast candle is perfect to send a couple who lives far away.


Outfit a couple's bar cart with this chic glass set from Anthropologie. It could also be a great gift for the sweetheart table at the wedding.

From $38
Etsy | BettyLuPaperie

If the couple isn't moving or you know where the couple will live after the wedding, stationery and stationery accessories are a great gift. This custom rubber stamp is both thoughtful and useful.

Milk Bar

Milk Bar is synonymous with birthday gifts to mail, but the gourmet truffles or assorted cookies would make a sweet surprise for an engaged couple, too.



While wedding gifts typically focus on items to use at home after the wedding, an engagement gift is a great way to treat someone to an accessory for the wedding or honeymoon such as luggage tags or these embroidered Mr. or Mrs. silk sleep masks.

From $59.99
Etsy | OliveMoongiftshop

Constructed of your choice of maple or walnut wood, this custom laser-engraved cutting board is ideal for all couples. Not only is the board 100% usable in the kitchen, but it can also serve as a statement decor piece on the counter when not in use.

Pottery Barn

How cute is this picnic set for two? The canvas/wicker bag is a modern riff on the traditional basket and includes tiny wine glasses and cutlery.

$80 (Set of 8)
Neiman Marcus

Why send flowers when you can send edible flowers? If you're looking for a fun engagement gift to mail, these mini bouquet cakes are always a hit, and they're as tasty as they are cute.


Flîkr is a great gift for the couple who has everything. Because they probably don't have a personal mini fireplace. These little concrete pods produce a nearly smokeless flame that's food-safe (think s'mores on demand!) and safe for use indoors.



Crystal is always a go-to wedding and engagement gift and this set from Food 52 doesn't read too stuffy. The geometric design is fun, funky, and not so traditional.

Urban Stems

Mailing flowers can get pricey fast, and it's sad to think that after spending so much on a floral delivery, the gift will only last a week or so. Urban Stems has a line of dried arrangements that will last forever, and The Serena comes in a super-chic brassy vase.

Kate Spade

If you're gifting a bottle of bubbly, an ice bucket is always a great way to wrap and present it. This rose-tinted ice bucket from Kate Spade would be perfect for a sparkling rosé.

$190 (Set of 2)
Hedley & Bennett

For the couple who loves to cook, outfit them with matching, chef-designed aprons. We love the colors and fabrics from Hedley & Bennett, especially this preppy blue and white stripe.

$198 (Set of 2)

And for the couple who loves to stay in, a matching set of robes from Parachute would be perfect. The bedding brand makes several robes these days, from waffle knit to linen, but we love the super-plush Turkish cotton.


Venus ET Fleur

If you've never heard of Venus ET Fleur, the bouquet brand specializes in "eternity" roses. These flowers are real, but unlike other floral arrangements, they'll last for a whole year. The petals and leaves are preserved to stay just as pictured for months. And the new Maison line features chic, Parisian-inspired ceramic vases perfect for gifting.


It's best to wait for a registry before shopping for most homewares or cookware. However, you can't go wrong with Le Creuset, especially if you know the couple loves to cook. A braiser is a great gift as the most common pieces people already have are a Dutch oven and skillet.


For the couple who loves to binge-watch and host movie nights, a premium, weighted blanket is a great idea. Bearaby has some of the most stylish weighted blankets, and the Tree Napper is both cooling and sustainable as it's made from TENCEL, a lyocell material made using eucalyptus fibers.


For the ultimate splurge, this double hammock from ENO is the perfect couples' gift. It can tie to a hammock base or mount to a wall or tree. And the hammock itself features super-comfy padded pillows at both ends.


It wouldn't be a wedding gift roundup with the classic KitchenAid stand mixer. With all of the clever attachments available nowadays, a stand mixer will be one of their hardest-working kitchen tools.
