The secret to selecting a successful engagement gift is to make it personal. Celebrate the beginning of their ‘happily ever after’ with a heartwarming gift that can be enjoyed by all. Choosing the right engagement gift is not easy. Steer away from tradition and leave the crystal stemware for someone else to give. You will open up a whole world of opportunities for meaningful engagement gifts.
House Numbers Also Make Great Engagement Gifts For Friends
For young couples, engagement can also mean moving into a new home. This marks a major milestone event in their lives. Honour this occasion and give them the best engagement gifts to incorporate into their new daily life. Help the couple start a new chapter in their lives and say goodbye to boring house signs. At RAMSIGN, master craftsmen use porcelain enamel to create each one of our house number signs. They then add the detailing by hand-stencilling the chosen design. This gives the sign a sleek, shiny surface with a delicate raised relief. Discover the address of the happy couple and get creative. Use our sign personaliser to create a design that represents the newlyweds to be. Think about the size and style of the sign and maybe even add an icon to make the design even more personal and unique.
Engagement Gifts For A Proposal To Remember
Were involved in the process, and even knew before the bride/groom about the proposal? Be sure to value this trust by commemorating the moment. Incorporate the exact phrase used to pop the question. It will not only make butterflies flutter in their stomachs but it will be a great conversation starter for when guests visit. A sign like this is personal and unique and a great idea for engagement presents for men. Choose a tender message to keep the spark ignited even in the hardest moments of the relationship. Here are some other sign design tips for engagement gifts:
- Pick a colour scheme that is meaningful to the couple. Perhaps they have a lucky colour or are fans of monochrome minimalism?
- Combine a light background with a strong font colour for extra impact.
- Use a trim, in the same colour as the font, to add a stylish finishing touch to the design.
Custom Ring Boxes Are Wonderful Engagement Presents
One of the most important details of a proposal is a ring. It is a symbol of eternity and therefore represents eternal love and commitment. It is a beautiful way to show the promise both are willing to make to each other. However, couples tend to overlook safe and discreet storage options for their rings. Create a unique and stylish ring box where the couple could keep their rings and store them at night or when they are travelling.
- Choose a wooden box of your choice and purchase the jewellery dividers that suit your design theme. Velvet dividers offer luxury and comfort while satin dividers create a simple elegance with a modern touch.
- Finally, the finishing touch that makes this gift truly personal. Top the box with a bespoke enamel sign showing the couples names, initials or simply ‘Mr & Mrs’. Don’t forget to add an icon to your sign. Two interlocking rings add a romantic finishing touch to the design.
This is a creative idea for engagement party presents and it shows a lot of thought. If the couple decides not to use the box for jewellery, they can simply remove the jewellery divider and use the box as a personal storage solution for any corner of their home.
Unique Engagement Gifts: Where Love Grows
Now that they are getting hitched, it is probable that the lucky couple will be spending more quality time together. DIY, Baking or Gardening, these domestic hobbies bring a sense of togetherness to the home. They also calm frayed nerves - something that hours of wedding planning can cause. Inspire them to take up a hobby and gift them something mindful and eco-friendly such as a personalised set of wooden planters. Fill them with their favourite flowers or veggies.
- Purchase wooden planter pots from any garden centre and customise them with an enamel sign.
- We recommend adding wheels to the base to make them easy to move around. This is especially helpful when they are full of compost. These engagement gifts are great for couples who have limited or no outdoor space.
Funny Engagement Presents for the Home Bar
Engagements are a time to celebrate with friends and family. That means lots of bottles will be popping and the drink will be flowing. Charm the couple’s playful side and create a home bar for them to enjoy. This is a great gift idea if you have been asked to be the groom’s best man. Use popular beverage inspired phrases such as ‘It’s Gin O’clock’ or ‘The Wilson’s Beer Garden’ as ideas for engagement presents for him. Or if the couple is teetotal then perhaps work on a sign that shows their love of coffee, tea or smoothies. If in doubt, take the idea of a home bar one step further. In addition to a sign, give them their bar on wheels!
- Take a vintage drinks trolley and place crystal decanter bottles and glasses on the top level.
- Underneath, store bottles of their favourite tipple.
- Don't fill the decanter bottles before you have added labels.
- Be it rum, whisky or brandy, a small enamel sign hung around the neck of a crystal bottle is a timeless way to present their drinks collection.
Engagement Gift Ideas for Couples
One major change when couples tie the knot is the changing of surnames. Not as popular as it was in the past, the decision to take your partner’s last name is a hugely personal one. If the couple does decide to share the same last name, celebrate this life-changing decision with a bespoke nameplate. Include the year that the couple got engaged underneath the ‘Mr & Mrs Surname’ text. Or, include the year of the wedding to mark the moment when it will become official. This sign can be placed in the entranceway of the property for all to admire. It is a great way to honour their relationship. And, it doesn’t have to be reserved for the traditional Mr & Mrs titles. These signs make wonderful ‘Mrs and Mrs’ engagement gifts and add a stylish touch to the home of ‘Mr & Mr’.
Engagement Gifts for the Home
Some couples decide that they want to begin married life with a fresh start. It is all too common that one person will move in with the other. But, there is something special about choosing a dwelling together. It symbolises a new beginning in the lives of a couple and is a visual representation of the commitment shared between them. To celebrate this momentous occasion, design a set of keyrings using small enamel signs. On each wedding house sign, place the first initial of the person or simply place an icon of a heart. Take a playful route with Mr & Mrs matching keyrings and ensure that the couple will never confuse their sets of keys ever again.
Engagement Photo Frames to Share the Memories
Starting this new chapter will bring with it lots of exciting and memorable adventures. Tackle a DIY photo board project and give a unique gift that will allow the couple to remember all the fun. Take a large piece of wood such as an old pallet or reclaimed floorboards. Add a personal touch by placing a customised enamel sign on top of it. Use a phrase that is meaningful to the couple. Alternatively, combine the date they got engaged with a forward-facing arrow. Glue mini pegs underneath the sign. These can be used to hold old concert tickets, photos or little love notes. This is a timeless gift idea that will not only provide a great statement piece of wall decor but is also a gift that will grow with the couple. Every milestone event in their lives can be documented on this photo board.
Why Add an Enamel Sign to your Engagement Hamper?
Overall, enamel signs offer so many opportunities for creating a bespoke gift that celebrates the tastes, hobbies and relationships of the newly engaged couple. At RAMSIGN, we use Danish design principles, typefaces and trims. This is in homage to the golden age of enamel sign production in the 1800s. Premium materials are used by our master craftsmen to create each personalised sign by hand. We turn the customer's 2D digital design into a stencil. Our team clean the steel plate and prepare for the enamelling process. This occurs in stages to build up a rich, luxurious colour. Master craftsmen then hand stencil the text and numbers onto the sign. This adds an extra textural element to the signs.
