Gifts for Engaged Friends & Couples
With December underway, it's time to get into holiday shopping mode! Today we wanted to share some fun gifts for those of you shopping for a recently engaged friend or for you and your partner if you are recently engaged!
Ring Dish or Ring Box
A ring holder/dish or a custom ring box are both simple gifts that can go such a long way. They can be used as a safe spot to hold an engagement ring while sleeping but its purpose doesn't end here! It can be an accessory on the day of the wedding that the bride can bring along with her other details for the photographer to shoot. Lovely ring boxes has some beautiful ring boxes and Etsy has a lot of ring dish options that can be customized.
An "we're engaged" customize tree ornament is a great way to celebrate an engagement and Christmas together. We got some for our couples this year from Lace and Belle but we also love the ones from The Jess Press and So Simpatico.
Meal Delivery Service
The meal delivery services are so much fun because couples can do them together. Currently we are using Green Chef but we are also big fans of Hello Fresh and Blue Apron. If your looking for meats, a great local option is The Butcher's Block.
At Home Wine Tasting
Drizly now makes it possible to easily send your friends a bottle of wine or champagne to celebrate. Another fun option is to gift a wine tasting from a site like In Good Taste Wines. They actually have a virtual tasting option where they send you the bottles to enjoy while you are walked through the tasting notes virtually!
Some of our favorite florists are now offering subscription flowers. We love this for so many reasons! If you are gifting this to an engaged friend, its a fun way for them to get a taste of a local florist and a glimpse at different style arrangements. If you are engaged, this is a really nice gift for your partner. Who doesn't want fresh flowers delivered monthly! Check out Sea Blossoms, Kerry Patel Poetic Florals, Three Girls Garden and Flowers by Melinda for some great NJ options. (Above photo from Sea Blossoms website)
One of our favorite gifts to send out are countdown blocks! These are really fun and can also be used to countdown other big events after the wedding is over. They can be found on Etsy (ours are made for us by Andriel Designs)
