Actually, I was wondering what to get my FDIL and son as an engagement present, so I’ll be watching.  Wish I could help.

If people ask, tell them that you’re saving for a house.  But only if they ask.

Engagement parties are not usually ‘gift giving’ events, they are more to celebrate the couple.  At mine we received a few gifts, and they were all very nice and not expected at all.  We got a few nice cutting boards (cheese tray-like, for parties), wine glasses, cocktail napkins, that sort of thing.

In our culture the engagement party is traditionally a ‘gift-giving’ event and the wedding is the ‘money-giving’ event.  Our e-party is this year and we are planning our registry now… as most people will want to buy us gifts or at least something to go towards our home.  In your case, I think you should just be honest with your guests.  Tell them you have everything you need in your home but a donation to your honeymoon fund would be grand 😛
