I am attending an engaggement party. The couple is not registered yet, I checked. Is it typical to bring a gift to engagement party? It is at a restaurant and since they are not yet registered I was thinking of just giving them money? What is the etiquette for gifts at engagement parties?

I typically just make a big card and get lots of friends and coworkers to sign it. In my experience, most couples are not expecting a gift.

I think it’s a regional thing. Here it’s not too common to give gifts at an engagement party, but we received a few gifts at our engagement party and I LOVED them – one family gave us some toasting flutes for our wedding, a frame to put our invitation and a wedding photo in, and a ring holder – all 3 of those things came in handy during our engagement, they were so perfect!
I’ve also seen an idea on Pinterest of giving a newly-engaged girl a wedding magazine wrapped with a big ribbon around a bottle of chamapagne. That would be an awesome gift, too 🙂
If you do want to bring a gift, I would personally keep it under $50 since you’ll end up buying the couple a present and maybe even a shower gift.

We requested no gifts at ours. But if someone really wanted to get us “something,” we asked for a Christmas ornament. It’s thoughtful, inexpensive, and I can’t wait to see our Christmas tree with all our friend’s and family’s touches on it!

I’ve never given one, and we didn’t get any!
