Wedding Planning Books

Wedding planning books are a popular gift to give to the soon-to-be bride and/or the groom because engagement parties are usually held soon after the proposal. So a wedding planning book as an engagement present will become useful once the wedding planning is under way, which may happen very soon after the engagement party! Traditionally, the soon-to-be bride is more involved with the wedding planning, but times are changing and there are plenty of great wedding planning books for grooms who want to take part in the planning.

Personalized Wine Stopper

For many people, there's no going wrong with a nice bottle of wine. But it can be fun to add a little something special to go along with the wine. A personalized wine stopper for the newly engagement couple can be a great little gift that pairs nicely with a bottle of vino. A heart-shaped wine stopper or a monogrammed stopper can be a nice and functional item that the couple can use long after the wine is gone. If the couple is planning a themed wedding or a destination wedding, then choosing a wine stopper to match their plans can be an extra fun way to celebrate their engagement.

Bride and Groom Personalized Flute Set

A personalized flute set is a very popular engagement gift idea for a newly engaged couple. An engagement party or even a bridal shower may be the best time to present the gift because it will likely be early enough in the wedding planning stage to allow the couple to use the special gift during their wedding toast. And it will be another thing that they may be able to check off their ever-growing list of items to get for their wedding day.

Along with a personalized flute set, you might consider including a bottle of their favorite champagne. Or if you want to go even further, a bottle of champagne and a nice ice bucket could be a perfect trio of gifts that will certainly be appreciated.

Cookbooks for Couples

Cookbooks are an excellent gift idea for young couples who are preparing to set up a home of their own or for couples who are self-proclaimed foodies!
