Ahh, engagement season. If your social media feed was flooded with engagement announcements over the last few weeks, you’re not alone! We’ve affectionately come to refer to this sweet spot in time, pre-Christmas and post-NYE as engagement season. It’s unofficially officially the busiest time of year when it comes to selecting the perfect way to say congrats while adding some personalization for a couple who is soon to share a name. We know it can feel overwhelming to try and select the perfect gift to celebrate newly engaged couples, so we put together a few suggestions for those about to say “I do.”
The Name Game
One of the most exciting parts of an engagement is getting familiar with a new last name. One of the most personal things you can give a new couple is something they can use together with their shared name! Gift some of our custom styrofoam cups to keep around their house or use at an engagement party – or go for reusable plastic so they can celebrate all engagement long! They come in a sleeve of 10 and are a thoughtful and affordable gift for the newly engaged. Add in some custom or ready to ship stir sticks for the perfect add-on to any celebratory cocktail.
One concern a few shoppers have is whether or not the bride plans to take her groom’s last name, hyphenate or just do her own thing! If you’re not sure, note that the majority of our custom designs can swap a monogram or last name for a fun wedding saying. Play it safe and opt for “She Said Yes!” or “THEY do!” You can still have fun and be festive!
Serve in Style
We love our custom cutting boards because they’re a unique gift and also double as adorable home decor! It’s always fun to see how different couples use them – whether it’s for serving a charcuterie, carving up a turkey or just using day to day in a kitchen, we can guarantee there’s few gifts to match! We also carry this custom cutting board with a personalized recipe on it, providing for a one-of-a-kind family heirloom that’s sure to be cherished.
On the topic of custom kitchen goods, make sure to shop our new line of acrylic pieces adorned with the couple’s new monogram or last name. Here are a few of our faves:
All the Acrylics
Personalized acrylic wine glasses are a must have for the new couple to toast their engagement! We adore the idea of giving them a set of these with a beautiful bottle of wine or champagne. It’s a great staple for any bar cart or to throw in a duffel for a fun engagement trip.
Speaking of champagne… how great is this custom acrylic ice bucket!? Ideal for any couple that loves to host, you can customize the bucket with a monogram or last name and again, pair with a beautiful bottle of bubbly! This doubles as a thoughtful wedding gift, too.
We can just see this acrylic serving tray perched poolside with fruit and cocktails… right!? If you’re looking for a gift that’s sure to be used often, this is it. The personalization is engraved, so you don’t have to think twice about the wording coming off with time.
For the Last Single Celebration
Another great idea to celebrate new couples is purchasing fun party products for the bachelor and bachelorette parties. While it may seem down the road, any newly engaged couple will appreciate something to get the party started early! You can also come back and shop these when it’s time to plan the party.
Custom cups are the perfect way to show off the couple’s wedding hashtag or a festive saying that’s Insta-worthy. To stock up on products for a destination bachelor party, we suggest customizing a few of our plastic or stadium size cups. If you’re looking for something a little more memorable, our custom wedding koozies are a great party favor. We even have them in sizes suitable for slim can beverages!
Fun Gifts for Any Groom and Bride-to-Be
For a match made in heaven (see what we did there?), our custom wedding matchboxes make for a sweet way to say congrats – and will be sure to adorn every room of their home! Pair with a scented candle and you’re good to go.
If you know the happy couple is off to celebrate their engagement with a weekend trip, make sure to pick up one of our best selling weekend duffel bags. As we’re all about adding in the new last name to any pre-wedding gift, this is a great go-to for their new monogram.
Don’t forget the bridal party! If you’re the bride, customize a few of our personalized cosmetic bags – perfect for wedding day touch ups or bridal party necessities. They come in a variety of prints, but we’re wild about our newest animal print detail!
