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.

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.
