My best friend (MOH in my wedding) just got engaged and is getting married pretty soon. I am going to be at the wedding but I won’t be able to make it to the shower before hand due to living 18+ hours away and being in dental school. I will definitely get her gifts for the shower, but for now I wanted to mail her something special so she knows how excited I am for her.
Any Ideas? I am considering “Bride” undies or something like that (she got those for me after our engagement) but was trying to think of something better.

When my best friend got engaged I found a place that make those personalized signs and had one made with her favorite quote and her soon to be last name on it. She loved it and it is now hanging in their house.
Experience gift cards are an awesome gift…I got another best friend a set of dancing lessons for her and her finace to learn their first dance
I don’t know your price range but a gc for an engagement photo session
A personalized dish to hold her engagment ring
Hope those help!

For my engagement I’ve received a lot of my pattern of china (the cool pieces like teapots) and a kitchenaid mixer- stuff I was planning on putting on my registry and that I’m oh so happy to receive!!! YAY!

ooh a neat gift I received was a fancy pen to use for signing my marriage license. It was creative I thought!

Is it tradition to get engagement gifts? I’m having an engagement party and didn’t expect this. Not that I’m complaining…

One of my parent’s friends sent me a big envelope with a couple of bridal magazines in it as soon as I was engaged. This was very exciting because I did not “allow” myself to buy any before I was engaged and all of a sudden I had a whole bunch to read 🙂 My parents sent me a ring holder and that was nice too!

Lots of great ideas!! Thanks so much! It looks like I am going to be able to go to the shower after all but I will probably still pick up 1 or more of these ideas!!!
@FutureMrsMcDermott – I don’t think it’s traditional, but I wanted to get her something since we are so close and I can’t be there with her to celebrate! 🙂
