Getting engaged is a wonderful time in any persons life. If a man in your life just got engaged it can be a great time for you to celebrate with him by offering him a nice engagement gift to say congrats.
If you do not know his fiancee very well or even at all, then do not feel bad for not getting the couple a gift because there will be chances to give the couple a gift at their wedding shower or for their wedding. And, of course, you may choose to get him an engagement gift that both of them will be able to enjoy as a couple if you do not feel comfortable just getting him a gift.
A nice pair of cuff links is a great way to congratulate a man on his engagement. There are many different styles to choose from; for instance, if he is Irish, then Celtic designed cuff links may mean a lot to him. Or you can consider personalizing a pair of cuff links with his name or initials. There is a good chance that he will be wearing cuff links on this wedding day, so if you are very close to him, then you may find that he will be sporting your engagement gift on his wedding day, how is that for a great gift?
It is sometimes said that experiences are more memorable than material gifts for him or money. So if your guy is a sports fanatic or loves to go to concerts, then getting him a pair of highly sought after tickets can make a great engagement gift. This would certainly be even more special if you were able to find a cool event that both he and his fiancee could enjoy together. For instance, if they are both wine lovers, then maybe a wine tasting tour certificate that they can use anytime may make a wonderful gift. With the upcoming wedding, the couple is probably overwhelmed and stressed out, so an excuse to forget all their responsibilities for a few hours or an evening can be just the ticket in keeping them sane!
A funny gift for him may be a wedding or engagement survival kit! There are some funny survival kits that you can buy online, but you might also consider making him a survival kit that is personalized to his tastes. For instance, you might want to include tickets to the movies if he is a movie lover because that will buy him a couple of hours of relief from the stress of wedding planning. Or if he loves golf, then buying him a tee time at his favorite course would be awesome. You might also include a bottle of scotch or six pack of beer as a funny way to give him permission to relax a bit during the engagement. A box of tissues for all the emotions he will likely begin experiencing. A brochure about eloping to Las Vegas would also be a funny item to include.
