Yay! One of my good friends just got engaged this weekend and I wanted to give her a gift. I’m thinking about giving her the Knot’s List of Wedding Lists (I got that as a gift and I loved it as a resource).
What are some gifts that you have given or received as a newly engagee?

A custom address stamp should would be handy for putting return addresses on Save-The-Date Cards, RSVPs, ect…

Book of stamps! I know it’s kind of weird, but seriously, it’s very practical–I have never had to put so much stuff in the mail until I got engaged.

This time of year I think it’s fun to give a “Just Engaged” Christmas ornament.

my favorite gifts were a ring dish and a “bride” bag filled with wedding magazines 🙂

That is so super sweet of you. My BFF gave me a book for weddings and it included checklists and just about everything about weddings I needed to know. It was super sweet.

I love the personalized stamp idea – though I know for myself, it was a personal preference of what style I would want.
How about any types of resources that you found to be a great help in planning or getting ready?

I did a post about this on my blog and there were a few etsy sellers that I mentioned – http://suburbianbliss.wordpress.com
I think ring dishes are GREAT because I have used my ring holder over and over again. A book of stamps is a great idea! I gave my friend a book about 1000 ways to save while planning your wedding and some pages I had torn out of bridal magazines.
Another great one might be to get her a good notebook/binder and decorate it to her taste so that she can put business cards, contracts, important emails, write notes, etc while planning
OR for the couple you could do a gift certificate to a restaurant or night out since planning a wedding can be an expensive and busy time – for them to get out and just have a no wedding planning night!

I know this post is really old but thought I’d add some suggestions in case others come across it like I did! I think personalized gifts are fantastic for newly engaged couples. I also like the cute gifts that have Mr. & Mrs., His Hers, Bride Groom, etc on them. This site is great for stuff like that! http://www.zazzle.com/rusticharbor/gifts?cg=196742653656029104
