Engagement presents can be hard to shop for. Why not try an alternative approach and walk around your house and consider what you want or need and compare that with an engaged couple?
As you leave your home, it is common to check your appearance to make sure your hair is not out of place and is looking good, there are no marks on your face, your clothes looked pressed and crisp. So why not buy a stylish mirror for the engaged couple.
If you want your engagement present to be the centre of attention, the ideal room has to be the lounge. Often the busiest room in the house, there are a number of things you could buy. You could purchase a painting, a photograph, a standard photo frame or perhaps a digital one.
Does the engaged couple love to cook? Then the perfect gift may be for the kitchen. Consider a knife or utensils set or a dinner set to include dinner plates, bowls, cups and glasses.
Perhaps cutlery for the dining room would suit the couple better or presentation bowl for fruit, dessert or drink, think punch or juice.
Maybe you want something a little more distinct and you want to buy a engagement present that stands out from the rest. A risky strategy, one that may lead to disaster or make you shine above the rest. Consider a tree, plant, pet or how about a garden gnome, a hose or a sprinkler.
How about something for the shed? If either of the couple enjoy or frequently do DIY, consider some tools for the basic essentials, think hammer, screw driver, pliers, wire cutters and nails.
Are you thinking of an engagement present for the bedroom? How about some candles, so they can make the best of a romantic evening. Bed sheets or cover for the couple to roll around, cuddle and get snug in.
Before or after a big day, how about something to help them unwind like scented candles and massage oils to help the stress drift away.
Engagement presents can be delight to give, careful thought will ensure they are a delight to receive.
