Gifts Ideas for Your Engaged Friends | Raleigh NC Wedding Planner

The holidays are my favorite time of year (other than summertime at the beach, of course). I love the fellowship, the hospitality, and the cheerful decorations the holidays bring. But most of all, I love giving gifts. If you have any newly engaged friends and family in your life, these are my go to gifts ..  you truly can’t go wrong with one of these (or all if you are feeling extra generous!).


Mrs. Box: Fact – every gal with an Instagram account has swooned over one of these boxes at one time or another. I love that you can choose the perfect color and monogram accent to personalize this gift. The other wonderful thing about these beautiful boxes are that you are truly giving an heirloom. It will be photographed on wedding day, hold her ring for years to come, and possibly handed down to future generations.

Veuve Clicquot Brut: When in doubt, give champagne. Christmas, birthdays, job promotion, engagement, or just because it’s Tuesday, it is always time for a glass of bubbles. Help your friends celebrate their new life milestone in style with this luxurious bottle of bubbly.


Southern Weddings Ultimate Bride Bundle: This bundle of joy .. well not that kind of bundle .. is sure to start the bride in your life with all the things she’ll need to plan and celebrate a meaningful engagement, wedding day, and marriage. This bride bundle includes some of my favorite SW items like the Southern Weddings Planner and Marriage Certificate (in the most beautiful gold foil). P.S. This is on sale right now until 11/28!!

Rewined Candle: These candles are my addiction. These Charleston made candles are the perfect gift for any guy or gal. My favorite scent is Champagne .. are you surprised? I also love the new Blanc collection. The Rosé and Chenin Blanc smell like heaven!


BHLDN Champagne Flutes:  Yay for these festive flutes! They are the perfect accompaniment to a bottle of of bubbles or simply wrapped with a bow on their own. I love that these flutes don’t feel overly feminine and would be the perfect gift for any couple.

Kate Spade Silk Square: A modern day Audrey Hepburn would, without a doubt, have this silk square tied around her handbag or knotted in her hair while cruising down the highway. I love the chic black and white touch and I’m confident your newly engaged gal pal would too.
