You or your friend just got engaged—cue the excitement! (And maybe a few happy tears.) After the big announcement, it’s time to celebrate the moment before diving into wedding planning. Whether you're looking for an engagement gift for your friend or simply feel like spoiling yourself, these just engaged gifts are perfect for the job. If you're shopping for someone else, treating your bestie to an impromptu engagement gift isn't mandatory, but it can be fun to surprise her just because! Keep in mind that these knick-knacks are different from traditional engagement gifts, which are typically given to the couple at an engagement party or after a formal engagement announcement, but that doesn't make them any less meaningful. Here are 25 just engaged gifts that were made for spreading the love—or treating yourself.
Need another reason to celebrate your engagement? Don’t miss out on our #justsaidyes contest, which runs from December 1, 2020 through February 26, 2021. Share a photo of your proposal moment on Instagram, then tag @weddingwire + #justsaidyes for a chance to win a subscription to Miss to Mrs Box or a trip credit from Pack Up + Go. Happy posting!
