Engagement Gifts

When buying an engagement gift, the best thing to keep in mind is that it's a gift for them. So choose something that they both like or can use. 

Should I get a personalised engagement gift?

That's a very popular choice-so popular that chances are, somebody else will get an engagement gift like that too. Some of the most popular choices in this category as caricatures, mugs, glasses and cushions. That doesn't mean that there aren't unique personalised gifts available too if you'd still like to get a personalised gift. There are!

Custom Socks

Arnotts have a custom socks machine inside their store on Henry Street. Bring a picture of the happy new couple with you and get some fun custom socks made! The great thing about this gift, is that you can actually design the socks. You can select the colours of the socks, the pattern and then the picture that you want printed. The picture will be printed all over the socks. 

Adult socks are unisex/one-size-fits-most and cost €20 per pair.

Custom Sculpture

A custom sculpture is a beautiful gift and it's a piece that the couple can keep forever. A good idea, when selecting a custom sculpture, is to get one made of their pet (if they have one). If they don't, then you can get something that means something to them or even a sculpture of them. The best place to check out for that sort of gift is Easy. There are some amazing stores and some offer custom bobbleheads too. 

Custom Sculpture

If you'd prefer not to get a personalised or custom gift, then there are some other nice gift ideas below:

1. A gift voucher

You may think this isn't a personal gift but it is a gift that is often truly appreciated as Weddings are very expensive so a gift voucher at the engagement phase is nice touch and allows the couple to have a treat that they may otherwise opt out of in order to save for the Wedding. A gift voucher for their favourite restaurant or hotel is lovely or a Blue Book gift voucher is always a good choice. That way, they can select something themselves. 

2. A writing set or a Journal

Part of preparing for a Wedding involves lists, lists and more lists so a writing set is a very thoughtful gift. You may opt for a journal, there are some actually mapped out with Wedding preparation milestones, or just a simple set which includes a pen and paper so that they can create their own lists. 

3.Afternoon Tea

The gift of afternoon tea is a wonderful gift as it's the simplicity of sitting down and having tea and cake that truly allows a couple to unwind. There is no pressure, like there sometimes is if going on a night out or for dinner. It's a gift that allows them to sit back, often in a luxurious setting, and just relax and reflect everything that just happened beeper their engagement. Engagements bring a lot of hustle and bustle, congratulations and parties so an Afternoon Tea gift is a lovely little calm before the storm moment for the happy couple.

4. A Camera

Phones have fantastic cameras on them now so buying a camera is not something that ever seems important. And couples often get a photographer for their Wedding so don't always feel a camera is necessary. But as an engagement gift, a camera can be bring so much joy. There are a wide variety of cameras available with different lenses and capabilities but regardless of which one you opt for, the actual process of getting a camera creates some projects that the couple may not have thought of. They may decide to start documenting the engagement and then ideas they see that would work for their Wedding. It provides endless fun and memories that will last a lifetime. 

5.  A Bottle of Sparking Tea

We love sparkling tea here at Gift Fairy. The bottles are like champagne bottles but they are alcohol free so are a perfect gift for anyone. We especially love the Copenhagen Sparkling Tea. It is a  combination of Nordic innovation and Asian tea traditions.Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Company was founded in 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

They have 5 unique versions of Sparkling Tea available:

*LYSERØD is the driest version of Sparkling Tea and the perfect alternative to a Rose. There are intense aromas of red berries and red apples.A complex and comfortably dry taste follows, thanks to the Oolong tea, combined with hints of blackberries and Hibiscus. It’s all balanced by the smooth Silver Needle white tea and finished with light bitter fruity notes.

*BLÅ has delicate aromas of Jasmine, chamomile and a hint of citrus. This is followed by a round taste from the careful selection of white teas and accompanied by good complexity and depth from the green teas. It ends in a long finish joined by comfortable tannins created by the Darjeeling First Flush.

*GRØN has clear aromas of lemongrass and citrus. The fresh characteristics are also significant in the taste, where they are joined by notes of green apples and a hint of ginger. This creates a mineral and crisp experience, which ends in a balanced bittersweet finish.

*RØD has immediate notes of red berries, Hibiscus, blackberries and a balanced citrus. This is followed by a light bitterness from the bergamot oil found in our Lady Grey and Earl Grey teas. The finish is semi-dry, which harmonizes beautifully with the initial berry notes.

*VINTER its the perfect Sparkling Tea option for the colder months. It starts with warm aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, clove and raisins as a result of the Chai tea. These spicy characteristics are also found in the taste, where they are joined by discrete notes of bergamot oil from the Earl Grey tea. This results in a smooth, elegant and round experience, with an intense finish, and balanced by hints of citrus.
