The personalized engagement party gifts always do the work if struggling with ideas. These come in the form of photo frames, soaps, candles, engraved jewelry, monogrammed gifts, glassware, cufflinks, wedding planners and much more. You can personalize them individually with names or a special message on turning your present into a thoughtful, useful keepsake that they will treasure long after the party.

Here are the next 12 engagement party ideas, which are ready-to-buy decisions, not time-consuming, quite affordable and definitely worth buying.
13) Drink as an engaged man / woman – engagement flutes, wine glasses or mugs
Pick some elegant toasting flutes with the couple’s names engraved on them or with a nice label. First of all, the couple could use them on other love occasions (such as Valentine’s Day and anniversaries) to annually toast their love. Second, these are cute year-round reminder of how special are to each other
14) Countdown Clock
Why not give them a clock that counts down the days to their wedding? It is definitely not so useful gift, nor a sentimental one, but it’s uncommon and will bring a smile to the couple’s faces.
Well, maybe I am not that right by telling that this engagement party gift is not useful. It could be – especially for the bride since most of the brides arrange everything for the wedding…. You can get it engraved with their names and the date of their big day – if you already know it.
15) Doorknocker or Custom Names Door Sign
A door knocker or a door sign with their name and would-be common last name engraved on it is an unusual and unique gift item that indicates your happiness when you see them together. This kind of signs are something that is always done after the wedding, so this small gesture could help the couple with their after-wedding tasks. Picking up a proper doorknocker or door label could be hard since there are many suggestions. Probably you know the couple’s taste, so go for it. This present is one of the most successful personalized engagement party gifts.
16) Matching Key Rings
The idea is not so uncommon – His and Hers (heart-shaped) key rings engraved with their names and wedding or engagement date.But it is cute and maybe I could make it to a couple which is not so close to me. But still, there are very nice items on the market – thoughtful and charming – liek this one.
17) Funny Homemade Survival Kits
That’s my favorite!
As a simple and funny gift for the engaged couple, you can wrap a box of their favorite wine or beer (or other spirits) + chocolates (for the future bride) + chips (for the future groom) and label it “Wedding Survival Kit” or “Marriage Survival Kit”. These types of gag engagement party gifts are great because everyone can celebrate together after the box is opened.
Another type of survival kit that you can create is for the wedding planning. The kit can include tickets to a fancy place dinner and a movie with instructions “In case of wedding planning breakdown, use immediately!”. Or maybe the kit can include a gift certificate to the spa for the bride-to-be and a gift certificate for a karting for the groom-to-be. Or a kit with home-spa products for the couple’s relaxing time and pleasure. There are so many options that I can’t really tell all of them I have. This survival kits will be a funny gift and it will likely be used when the engaged couple needs some time away from their wedding planning tasks and duties.There are so many options that I can’t really tell all of them I have in mind.

18) His and Her Pillowcase
These nice pillowcases are good reminders for the couple to say “I love you” each and every night and each and every day. Most of the vendors provide personalization with names, but I think it’s cuter if you buy one of these as cute engagement party gifts:
19) Wedding Planner Books/Guides
The planning and preparation of every single detail regarding the wedding are usually handled by the bride. Of course, I will not vilify on the grooms -there are many that take their part with the preparation (as my husband did after my threatens). With this Wedding Planner you will assist the couple to start the planning process and manage all the tasks in time.
By the way, I wish I had one at the time I was preparing our wedding party….
20) Mr & Mrs T-Shirts
Matching Couple T-Shirts that have ‘just got engaged’ imprinted on them are an excellent gift, especially for a male friend. There are also other t-shirts that you can design online for the future groom or bride. You can write your own personal slogan, like “Off the Market” or other similar phrases to let others know that the person is no longer single. This way, the T-shirts are cool for the next-to-come bachelor’s and bachelorette’s parties before the wedding. For the bride-to-be get a funny t-shirt that says “Mrs. Always Right” or some other sassy slogan that will put a (smirk) smile on her face.
21) Framed Four Leaf Clover
You can purchase a framed four-leaf clover, which symbolizes good luck and insert a note that says ‘you don’t need a four-leaf clover since you have each other’. This is an easy and cheap yet fine and personalized present for a newly engaged pair.
22) For The Game Enthusiasts – Brand New Family Game
As your friends are planning their wedding — a stressful endeavor — they are certainly having hard times on decision-making and arguing about small details. A brain teaser such as a family game will help them relieve the tension.
This kind of engagement party gifts is a sort of investment in their marriage life. Imagine your friends having a special night together, having fun, maybe calling you to join and spending some hours in a happy challenge while playing the family game you just gave to them. The family board games, that need no technical appliances (just the players around) bring families and friends together for centuries. And probably you will put the foundations of a new tradition for the newly engaged , who knows?
23) Engagement Party Favors
You are going to an engagement party so bringing some funny and cool items will help the party’s hosts to bring the spirit and will show them your enthusiasm about their decision and future wedding.
24) Cooking Lessons for 2
Cooking lessons are fun and educational gift for the couple to enjoy for sure. It would have more effect if the bride-to-be or the groom-to-be are not talented in cooking, or one of them lied “I would never ever cook”. The lessons will give the couple a break from the wedding planning and offer them a unique time shared together. It will also be a good source for new recipes for the new life as a married couple. Cooking lessons are usually held at local colleges and restaurants, but try to check for more intriguing classes – for example, if they are fans of pizza, search a pizza

Cooking lessons are usually held at local colleges and restaurants, but try to check for more intriguing classes – for example, if they are fans of pizza, search a pizza master class to attend; if they are addicted to desserts, find a pastry course, and so on.
Go further, make the present more personal by adding a sense of the couple’s nature. What do I mean? I have always said that the personalization of a gift is not just putting names. If you want to make an impression, assign a gift that actually means something and matches the couple’s nature – how are they acting as a couple, what they love to do together, do they have a common hobby, are they funny guys, …
The best thing with engagement party gifts is that there are no requirements. You don’t have a gift registry wish list that put you in useful household “musts” line. Therefore, you are totally free in your gift choice. And don’t forget the final touch. I mean nice paper-wrapping and a heartwarming card with some personal and meaningful message of congratulations will complete your gift.
