Engagement gift etiquette

by Elisa Parry

Heading to an engagement party and not quite sure whether you’re expected to bring a gift? The etiquette around engagement gifts can be a little murky. Often there’s no registry, so if you do decide to bring a gift the pressure to find the right one can be tough! Sometimes couples aren’t expecting a gift at all. So essentially, it’s up to you as to whether you want to spoil the happy couple with something to help them celebrate. We’ve pulled together a few gift ideas to take the guesswork out of finding something appropriate and sure to hit the mark.

Country high tea setting
Gift a dining experience

Give them a chance to enjoy a night out somewhere special. Think a romantic dinner for two. It could be a five-course Italian degustation at Pilu at Freshwater or something a really out there, like a three course dinner in the dark in Melbourne. High tea is always a lovely gift option as well.

Gift them a pamper package

While wedding planning is super exciting, many a bride has fallen prey to becoming Bridezilla ahead of the big day. Help to keep stress levels to a minimum by gifting them a couple’s spa experience. You can’t go wrong with the Hot Springs on the Mornington Peninsula or a couples massage and facial with chocolates and sparkling wine in Collingwood.

A two night eco-pod getaway in the country or a glamping adventure… the choices for gifting a romantic getaway are endless. This is another great gift as it will allow them to take time out to relax and recharge together.
