Engagement present ideas are usually hard to think of. The couple may be your friends. Or one of them may be a family member. Being engaged is such an exciting moment in people’s lives that everything relating to it should be equally memorable. Among the best concepts for gifts for this type of occasion are personalized photo frames, keepsake boxes, and other items for the home.
One option to personalize these gift items is to have them engraved with the couples’ monogram. It is a style that’s very classic and elegant. But remember to choose a font that will match the item. Oftentimes, it’s ideal to keep the font as simple as possible. However, if you know the couple very well, place an image that symbolizes something dear to them, instead of their initials.
A picture frame can be very ordinary as a gift. But if you put something on it that defines the couple, it will instantly have a sentimental value. Frames now come in a wide range of materials. Choose one that you think the couple will like. Wood and metal frames are the most common. But you’ll also find available ones that are made of special fabrics like silk, abaca, and others. If the couple loves uniqueness, look for frames made of exotic materials like capiz shells or cinnamon bark.
It would also be great for engagement presents to be things that they can use as they start their life together and sharing things together. Personalized chests or boxes are also good gift suggestions for soon-to-be married couples. You’ll find them in various materials, leaving you with a number of choices on how to personalize them. If it’s made of wood, you can have the monogram or image carved directly on the surface. You can also have it etched on a small metal plate, which will be secured on the wooden box with a heavy-duty adhesive material or tiny screws. If it’s made of metal, the monogram or image will be engraved. You can also find customized boxes covered in luxurious fabrics like those used in making jewelry boxes. Fine stitching would be best for these types of boxes.
Personalized engagement gift ideas can be endless. You can also apply this concept on other items like vases, metal containers of condiments and teas, and many other things for the home. Best to do this if you know some interesting information about the couple. You have to be aware that you’d need time to prepare this type of gift, especially if the seller of the item itself and the personalizing service are different suppliers.
