9 Unique Engagement Gift Ideas at Every Price Point

Updated 05/02/19

When a good friend gets engaged, you want your engagement gift to be more than a practical kitchen appliance. Save such necessities for the wedding registry, and have the engagement gift be a warm gesture of congratulations—while still being something the couple can use and enjoy together. Instead of being one more guest to bestow upon the couple another set of monogrammed coasters or bathrobes, choose an elevated gift they'd want to gift themselves. Since tracking down the perfect present for your newly engaged friends can be tricky, we've rounded up unique engagement gift ideas—with something to suit every couple—to bring to your next engagement party.
