Still struggling to come up with an engagement gift for newly engaged friends? There are lots of thoughtful gifts you can pick up to honour this exciting time. If you’re looking for something sweet and weddingy for a pal that has just gotten engaged, there are lots of personal pressies you can pick up. If she loves her jewellery, she’ll appreciate this fun Mrs and Diamond duo necklace from Kate Spade or she’ll be touched by this sweet ampersand, symbolising this special time. Notebooks are a fun gift for brides-to-be and they’re practical as well (win win – check out more gorgeous wedding planners and bridal notebooks here) or if you’re after something to keep the excitement levels sky high, pick up this adorable chalk board sign – a super fun way to countdown the days to Big Day once the date is set! Other gifts we love include these awesome ‘Soon to Be Mrs…’ mugs (sure to bring a smile every morning over coffee), this beautiful ring holder that will keep the prized sparkler safe and sound when it’s not adorning her ring finger and this Happily Ever After tote, that will make the grocery shopping that bit more fun.

If you’d rather give your mates something practical that they’ll use, think restaurant vouchers, concert tickets or even shop vouchers they can use down the line! But if you’re after something personal – take a peek below. You can go the traditional route and get Champagne flutes or wine glasses (this loved up pair are traditional and sweet but there are lots of fun and modern designs if you’re looking for something to suit your friend’s home – or if you’re looking for a real engagement keepsake, pop over to the weddingsonline shop where you can pick up actual engagement glasses complete with ring detail!) Prints and art work are gorgeous gift ideas (Jam Art Factory and April and the Bear stock lots of amazing Irish artists if you’re looking to go the personal route with a unique print to suit their style) and you can get lots of personalised pieces over on NotontheHighstreet including this book inspired Happily Ever After framed print. Other ideas we love include this ridiculously cute personalised piggy bank for all the cents they’ll be saving, these wedding drink holders – perfect for some celebratory beers or pop one of these personalised wine labels from WowWee on one of their favourite bottles of vino so they can toast this happy time and have a lovely keepsake.
