Engagement Parties are not gift giving events generally.  In saying that, I did get gifts at mine.  Most were pictures, picture frames, or wine.  Some family bought more expensive gifts though.

I didn’t expect any gifts and was surprised by the amount of people that brought them!  But as the pp says, they aren’t typically a gift giving event.  Since my husband and I were going to live in the USA and the party was in the Netherlands, most people gave cash.  The few wrapped gifts that we got were pretty special ones that we were thrilled to get!

Around here, people give the couple money (nothing crazy, just $50-$100 usually)
