We’re here to help. We’ve compiled 15 of the best engagement gifts for couples. No matter if you are shopping for engagement gifts for him or for her, we chose gifts that can be personalized and that commemorate the couple’s engagement date and celebrate their love.
Best Engagement Gifts for Couples
1. Personalized Picture Frame
A personalized photo frame is an elegant way for the couple to commemorate their engagement date. We found two great picture frames at Bed Bath & Beyond that can be personalized with the couple’s name and engagement date – one with a graceful script font and one with a trendy shiplap design.
For a delicate and classic option, try this Kate Spade photo frame from Macy’s.
2. Personalized His and Her Mugs
This is a fun way to celebrate a happy couple. And you have lots of options. If they love the outdoors, get his and hers personalized camping mugs. If their style is elegant and refined, get this personalized mug set with their names written in a bold, stylized font. If the couple likes cute and romantic, they’ll love this ‘Blown Away By Love’ personalized mug set.
3. Picnic Basket Set
Most newly engaged couples just want more excuses to spend time together. A relaxing picnic is peaceful and romantic. You can go with a traditional handwoven picnic basket set or a modern insulated bag with room for ice and drinks. Either way, you’re giving the couple the gift of a special time together.

4. Wedding Planner Book
This one is a no-brainer. After all, you know they’re going to be planning a wedding soon! David’s Bridal has a wedding planner that many reviewers said was the best one out there. It has sections for vision planning, vendor planning, guest planning, contracts, forms and so much more. This gift will be super-helpful.
5. Personalized Wine Glasses
With an engagement and wedding, you can bet the couple will be doing plenty of celebrating. You can give matching his and hers wine glasses or these festive Mr. and Mrs. glasses from David’s Bridal. If you want to gift an entire set, consider a full collection with glasses and a decanter.
6. Bar Set
Speaking of celebrations, it might help to gift a bar tool set to complement those glasses. You can give a complete cocktail set – there are inexpensive options and high-end options. If wine is the couple’s drink of choice, a wine bottle and corkscrew set is a great gift.
Rounding out our party gift ideas, here are a few options for decanters. The happy couple will probably be given plenty of high-quality wine and other adult beverages, so a decanter will be well-used. Macy’s has several uniquely designed or classically styled wine decanters that will dress up any cheese and wine snack.
8. Personalized Travel Bag
Help the couple prepare for their upcoming honeymoon with personalized travel bags. We found some at David’s Bridal that are chic and fashionable. This canvas pink weekend bag can be personalized with up to three letters and this oversized weekender can be stitched with names up to 10 characters.
For something more upscale, consider this customizable vegan leather transport duffle bag.
9. Spafinder Gift Card
When an engagement is announced, we all know what comes next – wedding planning. That can be stressful for a lot of couples. Give them a chance to take a break and spend quality time together. A Spafinder gift card can be used at thousands of spas and salons in the U.S. They can even use it for pre-wedding treatments or their honeymoon!
10. Amazon Echo
Make life easier for the newly engaged couple with a smart home device like the Amazon Echo. It will help them keep track of appointments, to-do lists and each other!
11. Ring Holder
Many couples today write their own wedding vows. Why not gift the engaged couple a journal or notebook to get their writing journey started? David’s Bridal sells a his and hers notebook set that can be personalized and is made specifically for writing vows. You could also go with a simple but classic leather writing journal for each person.
13. “Read Me When” Fill-in-the-Blanks Card Set
The “Read Me When” card set is a great way for couples to celebrate each small moment leading up to and following the wedding. They can write messages to be read before the wedding, after one month of marriage, on the honeymoon and more.

This engraved diamond keepsake is a beautiful gift that will be cherished forever. It is engraved with the couple’s names and engagement date and comes in a satin-lined gift box for safekeeping.

Celebrate the couple’s romance with a personalized canvas print or custom wall art. We found some options that will go with any sort of décor. For example, this personalized “LOVE” typography wall art is simple and timeless. If you have a good photo of the couple, consider this personalized Script Love Heart wall art or this flower wreath photo canvas with a pallet wood design.
What If You’re Not Sure What the Couple Wants?
