I am hosting an engagement party for my best friend (I am in the wedding) along with her mother and sister (also in the wedding). She is not having a bridal shower, just an engagement shower. I am contributing to the shower by buying gift prizes for the guests but do I also buy a gift? I have never heard of an engagement shower? They aren’t registered anywhere since they plan to move abroad. If I do need a gift, any suggestions?

I think typically you should do some type of small gift.
I am not sure what you can do though if they are moving abroad. Luggage is always nice for things like that!!!

The couple who hosted our shower gave us a generous gift . . . which I thought was COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY! They had just thrown us an amazing party, which I know took plenty of effort, time, and money. I felt bad that they gave us a gift on top of it!
So I say skip the gift for your friend. Or, if you want to give something, make it something small and meaningful, like a framed picture or something. Good luck!
