Hi I was just wondering do any of you have any unique engagement present ideas? One of my friends got engaged in October and I bought her a wedding planning book, she was delighted with it. But then 5 weeks later our other friend got engaged and I was completely stuck as to what to get her that was not the norm glasses etc..... The 2nd girl who got engaged is getting married in August and I know I should've got her something by now, but I just hit a stumbling block trying to think of a present that's a little different Thanks in advance :thnk

My fave engagement present was a willow tree figurine called "Promise". Its got a little card with it that reads "hold dear the promise of love" [img:3uon2cib]http://www.familychristian.com/images/shop/detail/11490_detail.jpg[/img:3uon2cib]

We're using that as our cake topper Ozy.

Are you using the full size version DWP? I was thinking of putting our figurine on the table beside the cake! Some wollie posted a website ages ago with the cake topper version on it but can't find the post anymore O:|

What bout a Newbridge Wedding ablum? Or a digital photo frame? Or a genisus piece? Or depending on how much you want to spend, a voucher for a night away somewhere?

Yeah it's the full size version we got as we were told that the cake topper version wasn't available anymore. Hoping it won't be too heavy!

money!!!!! >:o) seriously. the willow tree figures are gorgeous. Or, a bottle of nice champagne that they are not allowed to open until the night before their wedding? (or wedding night?) or a voucher for the fave restaurant? if they're like most of us, they'll be cutting back on nights out in order to save for their big day.
