The Honest Hierarchy of Engagement Gifts
Someone around you just got engaged! Woohoo! Let’s celebrate!
But first, you must’ve come across this article obviously because you like them enough that you’ve thought about getting them some sort of engagement gift… so let us help you out with that. As you can probably imagine we’ve seen our fair share of engagements, and with these engagements came the gifts, so here’s how to win (or lose) engagement gift buying.
See that image above, no? That’s because there isn’t anything there. The rock bottom of engagement gifts – sweet nothing. But chin up, we’ve all been there! Life gets its claws into you and you lose a good couple of months and wonder where you’ve been, and “Oh my god” you forgot all about Jim and Sally’s engagement present. You, my friend, have some grovelling to do… or maybe you purposely didn’t bother?
The “I’m Not Really That Keen On You”
Oh, how lovely of you! I know you’re telling yourself it’s the thought that counts but what you’ve actually saying is “I don’t like you enough to spend more than £1.20 on you.” Which if that’s the case, you go right ahead, but if casually offensive gestures aren’t the style you’re going for… consider upgrading from this level.
The “Basic B*tch”
How many bottles of prosecco are this poor couple going to get? It’s a £7.00 slap in the face that you just pulled in to get on the way to see them. At least there is hope that they’ll get drunk enough to forget who got what.
The “I Bought The First Thing I Saw To Do With Engagement”
What a ground-breaking choice (we apologise for the brutal use of sarcasm here)… but come on! Surely you have time for another couple of seconds to scroll down and find something infinitely better than this?
The “Oh I Just Realised This Is A Wedding Gift Not An Engagement Gift”
Oh, is it obvious now we pointed it out? Well apparently not obvious enough… “Mr and Mrs” gifts are still on of the most received gifts for engaged couples even though they are months, even years, away from becoming Mr and Mrs / Mr and Mr / Mrs and Mrs… And if you were about to make that mistake, you can thank us for writing this article in the comments.
The “Holy Grail”
Contrary to the use of biblical language in the title, our Bridal Bible is nothing to do with religion.
