We have the perfect traditional engagement gifts for you if you know a pair of happy lovebirds who have recently decided to tie the knot and spend the rest of their lives together.
Traditional Engagement Gifts For Her
Traditional engagement gifts are meant to be loved and appreciated by both people in the couple, sometimes the bride needs to be the most important, and sometimes couples consist of two lovely ladies. We have chosen a number of gifts that will appeal especially to her!
Crystal Love Couple Figurine
We love Swarovski’s sparkly take on the traditional engagement gifts, and we especially love this awesome crystal wedding cake topper!
This beautiful creation will serve as a fun reminder and countdown to the biggest and most memorable day of a woman’s life, and should be kept in a place where she can see it often, like her make-up table or next to her bed. When the special day finally arrives, place it atop the wedding cake to bring elegance and charm to the proceedings.
Iron Couple Sculpture
This is another take on the traditional engagement gifts that could replace the standard wedding cake topper. We love this cute twist on an old classic. If you decide not to use it as a wedding topper, this delightful little iron sculpture would look great as a decoration for any room in the house.
Once crafted, each ornament is glazed to prevent discoloration or rust, so you can keep this cute sculpture outside with no risk.
Black Tahitian Cultured Pearl Necklace
This stunning designer necklace is yet another twist that we are 100% here for! It is seen as a good luck blessing to give a future bride a pearl necklace to wear on her way down the aisle, and we just love the glossy black Tahitian south sea pearls that add a stark contrast to white wedding dresses.
Each pearl is handpicked and the necklace clasp is made of 14k gold to ensure it will last for decades to come.
Infinity Love Modern Sculpture
This is a great sculpture for a couple who likes to keep a more modern home. This stylish sculpture represents the infinite bond that a couple share and will bring every bride-to-be warm feelings of affection and joy thinking of their marriage.
The colors of this simple yet effective sculpture are muted and natural, so it will easily fit in with any decor.
Crystal Lismore Diamond Frame
Since 1783, Waterford has been creating gorgeous traditional engagement gifts for couples all around the world, and this stunning frame is no exception. The blushing bride will love to display a sentimental picture of her and her man in this lovely picture frame.
To make this gift extra special, we recommend choosing a cute photo of the happy couple, like if the moment of saying “yes!” was captured on film, and adding it to the frame before gifting.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and now that the newly engaged woman in your life is rocking a brand new diamond ring, she’ll need some accessories to match!
These stunning 2k diamond hoops are perfect for dressing up a casual outfit or for adding some glitz and glam to a night out on the time. They may also be the perfect pair to wear on the big day!
Funny Engagement Candle
If you’re looking for small traditional engagement gifts that are more on the funny side, then we highly recommend this lovely candle with its “Engaged AF” label that lets the world know that this foxy lady is taken off the market.
The incredible aromas of iced champagne mixed with rich sweet raspberry and pink sugar are super fabulous and super strong! This candle will soon fill the newly engaged couple’s home with warmth and light.
Custom Bobblehead Couple Figurine
Who wouldn’t love two little “mini-me”s dancing on their dashboard? This fun traditional engagement gift can be totally customised from any photograph. Simply choose your favourite snap of the happy couple, send it in, and enjoy the looks of delight on their faces when they unwrap this hilarious gift.
Topaz Pendant Necklace
Topaz brings joy, generosity, abundance and good health. It is known as a stone of love and good fortune. We can’t imagine a better stone to gift to a woman who has recently seen her partner down on bended knee in an expression of eternal love.
Personalized 3D Crystal Photo
Want to surprise a loved one with a personalized traditional engagement gift? This is a funky modern version that is much more exciting than a boring 2D photo frame!
Choose a sentimental memory that is enshrined in a photograph and get it engraved for the newly engaged couple. They can place it on their mantel or bedside table and feel excited at the prospect of spending the rest of their lives together.
White Gold Diamond Tennis Bracelet
This simple yet elegant bracelet is a timeless classic that can be worn and enjoyed forever! Diamonds go with everything, and this lovely piece of jewelry is no exception.
Fitted with a double clasp, this bracelet is not going anywhere. Your lovely lady can wear it day or night, but we recommend taking it off for swimming to keep it safe. It could even be her “something new” to take with her down the aisle.
Edinburgh Hand Casting Kit
Whilst many couples announce their engagement by posting a picture of the ring on social media, this is one of those gifts that will really help them to stand out from the crowd.
Not only does this casting kit get you a forever memento of the special occasion, but it also provides a fun bonding activity that the couple can enjoy creating together. The kit comes with everything that you need to create a perfect replica of your happy hands.
Black Tahitian Cultured Pearl Pendant
If a string of pearls doesn’t seem like it would suit the bride-to-be, then why not opt for something classy and simple like a single pearl pendant? This exquisite piece of jewelry is elegant and timeless, and it can be worn with anything.
Each lovely Black Tahitian pearl is handpicked and checked to make sure that it is of the highest quality, and then topped with a sparkling gemstone.
During this heady time in a couple’s lives, there is so much going on! So many messages from loved ones, so many dreams and hopes running through their minds, and so much planning to be done! This journal is the perfect way to commemorate every step of this beautiful journey.
The engagement journal includes four thoughtful sections of questions and details for being engaged to reflect on one of life’s most important events.
Willow Tree Together
Just like the included gift card states, this is an excellent traditional engagement gift “for those who have found their true partner in love and life”.
Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each Willow Tree piece from her studio, and these are replicated and then hand-painted to ensure that each piece is perfect. A newly engaged couple will love to display this sweet sculpture in their home to declare their love to anyone who comes to visit.
Rapunzel and Flynn Wedding Figurine
This is a figurine for all of the Disney lovers out there! This sweet portrayal of Rapunzel and Flynn is a symbol of true love that will always find a way.
This sweet figurine can be used as a centre-piece on the dining table for when the couple hosts an engagement celebration party, and then later placed on the mantelpiece to add to the excitement of wedding planning.
True Love Flute Pair
The evocative heart-cut pattern of the True Love toasting flutes symbolizes two souls about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, making these the perfect traditional engagement gifts for a loved-up couple.
Pair this gift with a bottle of bubbly so you can toast the happy couple on their upcoming nuptials.
Wedding Cake and Knife Serving Set
This gorgeous vintage-style silver cutlery is perfect for a couple who is having a classy, traditional wedding.
The plate server is stamped with “I do” and the silver cake knife is engraved with the words “happily ever after”. Giving this gift to a newly-engaged couple is a sign of your blessing and shows your hopes for them and their bright future.
Engagement Shadow Box
A shadow box is a memorable gift to preserve all of the precious memories and trinkets from the day when the two lovebirds decided to join their lives together forever.
Gather together something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue, and choose a beautiful arrangement to display them proudly in commemoration of the big day.
Traditional Engagement Gifts For Him
Though the wedding is often said to be “all about the bride”, we have to make sure that the hubby-to-be doesn’t feel neglected. We’ve rounded up some great gifts for the lucky man to make sure he feels special.
Make sure your man looks super stylish as he makes his way up the aisle in this stunningly elegant Nordgreen Pioneer watch. We love the simple Scandinavian design that will complement any outfit.
Now the future bridegroom can count down the hours, minutes, and seconds until his special day with precision and accuracy, thanks to the special Japanese quartz used in the production of this fine timepiece.
Black Onyx and Blue Dumortierite Bracelet
This sleek, natural stone bracelet is inspired by Poseidon, god of the sea. The lucky beads with CZ diamonds and natural gemstones are said to give protection, confidence, and courage to its wearer. This means it’s absolutely perfect for a young man who is about to make a lifelong commitment to the man or woman of his dreams.
These awesome bracelets come packaged in a lovely gift box, so they are ready to be given right away.
The Marriage Survival Kit
Some traditional engagement gifts are designed to prepare the young lovers for their new life as a couple. A marriage is a journey, not a sprint, and it is important to be mentally, physically, and emotionally ready to share your life with another human.
The set includes an ornate, decorative key-shaped bottle opener to signify the unlocking of the next level of your lives together. There’s also a set of square coasters that are adorned with sweet and funny tips for how to make your new fantastic adventure easier to survive, “decision dice” and “couples coupons”, a ring dish, and some adorable His and Hers tumblers.
Fun Engagement T-Shirt
This is a casual and funny engagement gift to give to a groom who loves his Mexican food. It’s a perfect way to announce to the world that this man is off the market and that he has committed his heart to his one true love.
Made from 100% cotton, this soft and cosy tee is comfortable to wear and super easy to wash- simply throw it into a cold cycle machine wash and you’re good to go.
