Choosing a thoughtful engagement gift will help make this unique time even more special. But, with so many options out there, the task of finding a thoughtful engagement gift might feel overwhelming.

We spoke to Blue Nile, the world’s leading online retailer of diamond engagement and wedding rings, to share some insights on thoughtful engagement gift ideas.

Why are thoughtful engagement gifts important?

Getting engaged is an exciting time, marking the beginning of a couple’s commitment to spend a lifetime with one another. The engagement period is also the perfect time for family and friends to support the couple and their future through meaningful gifts.

When you give a thoughtful engagement gift, it is more than just a purchase; it signifies that you support their union and that they can rely on you to be there for them as they navigate their life together.

Our favorite engagement gift ideas

1. Something to Use In Their New Home

4. A Weekend Away

If you’re feeling generous, a weekend away is a thoughtful gift that the couple will remember forever.

Dos and Don'ts

  • DO think back to what you know about the couple and cater the gift to their lifestyle!
  • DON'T buy traditional wedding gifts, like a coffee maker. Trust us, they are likely to receive four of those before the wedding bells ring.
  • DO remember that whatever you give, that the sentiment behind the gift should be congratulatory!

Celebrate newfound love

We love helping people find thoughtful gifts to shower the newly engaged couple. Showering the happy couple with a gift that they will remember forever is the perfect way to show your excitement for this next step in their lives.
