I think you should go with your feelings on this one. If it’s your best friend, it might be nice to get her/them something. It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive, but surely she would appreciate a small gift from you.

Spread the love. 🙂

I would most definitely get my best friend an engagement gift.

A small gift is a nice gesture.  I would say yes, get her a gift.

I think it would be nice to get them a little something–like your FI suggested–a nice bottle of wine or something.  I’m sure they’d appreciate it. 🙂

We had an engagement party and nobody brought us gifts.

A bottle of wine is always a nice gesture though.

I’d go with a bottle of wine and a nice card. Nothing too fussy but enough to show you care.

I would defintely get a small gift.  My best friend go me a wedding planning bag to keep all my wedding stuff in … it was like $15.  Or a wedding picture frame would be nice.  I got my FSIL a candle with her new initial on it for her engagement gift and she got me a box to hold my responses in for my engagement gift.  There are so many cute possibilities!

If you feel like doing something, then a little something would be nice. Maybe movie tix or a bottle of wine and such. Or you could buy the happy couple each a drink, or just give a nice congratulatory toast. Since you designed her invites for her, I wouldnt think she’d be expecting a gift anyway.

I don’t like to show up anywhere empty-handed, so i agree with others that a bottle of wine, movie tickets, etc. would be a thoughtful gift.
