The 2022 gift guide to celebrate your BFF’s engagement
Your friend is engaged, how exciting! While your friend may not expect an engagement gift, they will certainly appreciated receiving one! This is an incredibly exciting (and potentially overwhelming) time and a thoughtful gift can go a long way. That said, it can be hard to find the perfect way to say ‘congrats’. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite ways to celebrate a newly engaged BFF. Our goal is to offer gifts that aren’t too cheesy and fall into one (or more!) of the following categories:
- Practical – gifts that the couple will find useful
- Keepsake – gifts that will hold the memory of their special day
- Celebratory – gifts that feel like a celebration
We stray away from typical ‘bride to be’ and ‘engaged’ gifts to present you with gifts your friend will truly adore receiving.
